Default Questions about Ork stuff

What are the best upgrades to give a battlewagon if you want it to transport some units but also want it to be a threat after delivering them?

I'd suggest starting out by reading Emlyn's reply to a similar topic here: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...tml#msg1201564

Oh, sorry, the search engine is down right now, so i couldn't check.

One more quick question:
A warboss in a unit with a painboy can have a cybork body for 5 pts instead of the usual 10 pts, right?

That is the Mad Dok's upgrade. The normal painboy doesn't effect the cost of a Cybork body, as I recall.

Towards the back of the ork codex in the Elites section it says that a nob can be upgraded to a painboy and that "All models in the painboy's unit may have cybork bodies.......+5 pts per model".

The Warboss is an independent character, and though he can join units during the game, he's not part of a unit when it comes to buying wargear and picking the units. So, any wargear you buy for the Nobz mob is just for them, even if you plan to join the Warboss to them. So no, he can't get it cheaper in your example, however as Khanaris is saying, he can if you field Mad Dok Grotsnik.

When having a Big Mek with Kustom Force Field, is there something in particular I should do with him? Should I put him in a truck or include him in a particular unit, or what?

Remember to use "modify".

The main thing about the K.F.F. is that the mek needs to move with whatever it is supposed to be protecting and he needs to be protected from enemy attack. Sticking it in a vehicle gives the field a little more range, but in a Trukk he is fragile. A lot of people run him in a Battlewagon for this reason.

If a battlewagon isn't an option (the one battlewagon I want to run for my army list is carrying around my squad of nobz and my warboss) what is my next best bet?
