Shall I buy grots or a 30 strong mob of shoota boys to hold objectives.

Looking at your previous posts, you're facing chaos, go for the grots, they're cheaper and better shots!

10 strong mob of grots will hold your own objective in a capture and control very nicely. Just hold them in reserve and hope they don't come on until turn 5.

On the other hand, they are a huge liability in kill point games. So you have to keep that in mind as well.
