It doesn't come with any big shootas. It does come with three combi shootas though, 2 combi rokkits, and 1 combi skorcha. You might be thinking of twin linke shootas, and not big shootas though; two different guns. You could easily convert the combi weapons to be twin linked shootas though.

Yeah, just glue the barrel of another shoota underneath a normal one and you have yourself a twin-linked shoota.

Ahh nice one, i don't play orks, but my little bro is just getting into the hobby and he brought some nobs and thought it was odd that options went all in the box, is there a way of getting twin linked shootas? or do you have to make them yourself?

You can bitz order them, or buy the metal nob that comes with it, but converting them is the easiest and cheapest option.

I'm still wondering why anyone would us TL Shoota - after all, you loose the bonus attack for having the Slugga. The only weapon that is actually "worth it" imo is the Kombi-Scorcha, for getting gitz to do "da burny dance!".

If you really, absolutely, positively have to have TL Shootas, I'm afraid you have to convert them yourself, which shouldn't be that big a problem.

Cheers,
-Bone

Unless they're armed with Big Choppas or Power Klaws.

Exactly. That's when I use them.

Still, I don't see the point. I suppose you field the Nobs in a transport of sorts. Since said transport will move more than 6" every turn, the Nobs as passengers can't shoot. ideally, they charge the turn they disembark, giving them one opportunity to shoot their guns before entering CC. If they don't FoF, that is. this is not really good enough for me to justify the cost of the TL Shootas - especially since a Kombi-Skorcha is a much more devastating one-shot weapon for exactly the same price. Just make sure you don't toast the whole enemy unit ;-)

Cheers,
Bone
