Default So lets say I was going to start an orc army...

Anyway, I was thinking about making an ork army, to complement my shooting heavy Tau guys for a different play style. How far would getting two assault on black reach sets, plus the ork battle force, do in terms of, say, a 1500 point army.

Note: the space marines that come with the assault on black reach are not orks, so please ignore them

You will get:
- 2 Warbosses
- 5 Nobz
- 20 Slugga Boyz (2 of them are equipped with Big Shoota)
- 5 Deffkoptas
- 20 Boyz (Can be made into any kind of Boy)
- Trukk
- 3 Warbikers

Looks good to me but we have to see your list.

You would get more than that^^^
I very recently got AoBR and a battle force, this is what it would contain with 2 AoBR and Battleforce.

-2 Warbosses
-10 Nobz
-60 boys
-2 trukks
-6 warbikers
-6 deffcoptas

At least 1100 points worth.

Good leaders, good core strengh, GREAT fast attack, and a good retinue or two for your Bosses.

With this kind of economy, I'll take all the variation I can get!
But there is a bit, wouldn't want a new Warboss malinformed would we now?

We'z orks! We'z big and green!

Anyway Thanks for the info guys, I have yet to get around to getting the codex and this is a plan for about a month or two in the future. Anyone able to tell me what would be the two other figures you would get for this force? This composition seems to have anti infantry and light vehicles covered, I guess I should get some anti-tank stuff? Thoughts?

Actually, the assault on black reach Deffcoptas have twin-linked rokkits.
They're fast, deadly, Orky and can re-roll failed to hit rolls!

Which you'll really need, with Ork BS being 2 all across the board
My friend has a DeffDread, and i really like it. I keep telling him to go get 2 more, or get some KillaKans, but he won't listen. So what if my railguns eat them up? They are awesome!
Maybe get some Storm Boys, they can zoom around the field while your boys eat bullets

Very true PNW
Giva a Killa Kan a Rokkit launcha or another DCC weapon and you have amazing outcomes.
The Rokkit will give you longer ranged fire power but the DCC's will be absolutely invaluable against tanks in CC.
