So i was playing my buddy last night, and we got into an arguement on how tis works. Say you take 20 boyz in one mob. Then you up grade one to a nob, do you get 20 boyz and a nob or 19 boyz and the nob?Thanks

It's an upgrade, and clearly stated as "One Boy may be upgraded to a Nob", so one of the 20 Boyz becomes a Nob, giving you 19 Boyz and 1 Nob.

Thor is correct as always, this may make you think you're only allowed 1 big shoota (as the mob only contains 19 boyz) but you can actually take 2 becausethe Nob counts for purposes of taking assault weapons.

Big shoota you mean? I believe yes based on the Ork FAQ and statement regarding Shoota Nobz taking PKs.

Both of my shooa nobs have big shootas and a power claw. GW decided you could do the upgrades in any order you like, so they can. It makes sense that the nob would have the biggest gun anyways.

That's interesting, I thought you traded the Choppa for the Klaw, but you needed to trade both the Slugga and the Choppa for the big Shoota.
If I'm right than you couldn't have both a big shoota and a power klaw, as the choppa would have been traded twice.
I'll check my codex later.

If you take a big shoota on the nob, that would count to the limit right?
So in a unit 20 strong you can take two big shootas normally. If you upgrade one boy to a nob and give that nob a big shoota you can only give one other boy a big shoota?

Here is how you do it. boy--> exchange slugga for big shoota --> boy upgrade to nob --> exchange choppa for power claw --> rest of boyz exchange choppa/sluggas for shootas.
