A bit of dis, a bit of dat

Now, I was very very tempted to post a dual Nob Biker list but I was worried that Andy would never speak to me again. So, instead, I've tried to come up with the balanced list that I alluded to here. The thing is, making a balance Space Marine army is easy. You take some shooty elements, some assaulty elements, some anti-tank elements and some anti-infantry elements stick it all in vehicles and call it a day. I don't really feel you can do this with Orks. As good as Lootas might seem, the random element is always waiting to trip you up. With this in mind I've gone for a very mobile list that hits really hard. Oh, and it's at 1750 points...

Warboss, Power Klaw, Warbike, Attack Squig, 'Eavy Armour

Big Mek, Kustom Force Field

6 Nobz, Warbikes, Painboy, Power Klaw, Boss Pole, Waaagh Banner, Big Choppa

19 Boyz, Nob, Boss Pole, Power Klaw

20 Boyz, Nob, Boss Pole, Power Klaw

20 Boyz, Nob, Boss Pole, Power Klaw

Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Red Paint Job, Grot Riggers, Armour Plates, Big Shoota, Boarding Plank

Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Red Paint Job, Grot Riggers, Armour Plates, Big Shoota, Boarding Plank

Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Red Paint Job, Grot Riggers, Armour Plates, Big Shoota, Boarding Plank

2 Warbuggies, Twin-Linked Rokkit Launcha

2 Warbuggies, Twin-Linked Rokkit Launcha

2 Deffkoptas, Twin-Linked Rokkit Launcha, Buzzsaw

So, the Deffkoptas Scout off and should get a Turn 1 charge and if you go first that means Buzzsaws against stationary vehicles. The Warbuggies use their speed to get side shots with their Rokkits. Meanwhile the three Battlewagons plough down the line of least resistance and the Bikes hide behind ready to jump out and kill anything that survives the initial assault. I think that you'll do well in a lot of match-ups with this list since it's very hard to stop. There are very few armies with enough reliable firepower to stop three Battlewagons inside two shooting phases. However, I think it might struggle against a good Tau list since they can block your movement with Piranhas and bubblewrap with Kroot. If it gets past them all of the battlesuits in the world won't survive though.

  1. Wow, this is very close to my revised Ork list. I have 5 Nob Bikers (Painboy, Waaagh!!! Banner, Bosspole, PK) and 3 x 1 TL Rokkit buggies. Rest of the points go for 3 x 5 Lootas.

    Otherwise the list is identical :)
