Default Quick Question about Mega Nobz

I've recently started Orks and I'm looking to use some Mega Nobz, but can't find a box set of them. Are they only available through blisters?

If there are no boxes then i would imagine so. Have you been on the GW Website, as that would tell you?

I could only find two blisters on their site. One with a Kombi-Scorcha and one with the Kombi-Rokkit.

If you have an Ork head, some weapons and some plasticard they're not too tricky to make.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

They have their uses - I run a small squad of three with my Warboss in Megaarmor with tremendous success. Three, because each one of them has a different equipment, and the sheer survivability of the 2+ save is enough to mow through a full Tac Squad of Marines. Especially in smaller numbers, Meganobs are far more survivable than their Nob counterparts - and cheaper! - than normal Nobs. The reason? For normal Nobs to reach a similar level of thoughness, you need to give them all 'eavy armor and a Painboy, which adds up, especially in smaller Mobs.

Cheers,
-Bone

I made mine from a Nobz box, some spare 40mm bases (to be tourney-legal), and a crap ton of plasticard, and gubbins from the lootas/burna boyz box. Only have one more to do to finish a unit of 5, then they'll kareen everywhere in their trukk while remaining slow and wildly ineffective.

But every freeboota army needs a few drunks. :P
