You have some Nobz but you really need to get a Box of them and expand abit. There is lots in the box so u can convert your other Nobz if needed. Also lootas are a good investment for an Ork list but u need 10. The thing is you get the option to make lootas or Burnas so with a few spare boyz you can make the burnas up. Thats what I would do if i where you.

Hi Jasonsea212, welcome to the forums
Please read da :rulez:[size=4pt](Heck this smiley is addictive)[/size] as they explicitly say no text speak (such as any1)
[hr]
IMO the next unit you should get should be another 2 boxes of boyz, give both of the nobz power klaws and combine all of your boyz to have 2 units of 30 boyz lead by PK nobs. After that it might be worth getting a couple of Kanz with grotzookas just to give you a couple of armoured targets to distract the enemy with. You could also, as Waaghsteve said, expand your nobz mob with a nobz box, PK's all the way :P

What style of army are you going for?

I would say yes, U have 6 nobz with slugga and choppa which are the basic model. You need power claws, bigchoppas, bigshootas with Kombi-flamer, Waargh Banner, bosspole and Painboy. Lots of options there and u get them all in the Nobz box so you cant go wrong.

Have a look at the articles on the website, there are some pretty good ork ones (unless they've disapeared :P)

You might of found this by now if you have eyes but have alook here. Its a wealth of info.
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...c,51037.0.html

Also for a quick peace of advice. If your not putting your boyz in Trukks or Battlewagons keep the Mobz as large as passable just like The Indisputable Sorck said.

Boomguns are great but have to have line of sight to fire and have low armour. I use one in my list which has worked well for me. In your area whats the main people you face? Marines? If you like the fact it has a large blast and AP3 U might want to have alook at the battle Wagon with kill Kannon. The battleWagon can also be the dedicated transport for Nobz.
