Get ur (Speed) Freak On

As I've mentioned before, our club is hosting a 750 Club Challenge, starting in the next couple of weeks. There are some pretty stringent rules. Since it's Ork Week, I was thinking about what kind of Ork army you could put together at 750. Obviously, there's the horde route, where you take 3 30 Slugga Boyz mobz with Nob, Power Klaw and Bosspole backed up with a Big Mek with a Kustom Force Field. At 750, with a minimum spread of vehicles, it's going to be tough for anyone to kill 90 Orks, especially with at least two squads getting a permanent 5+ cover save. However, it feels like a bit of a boring list, you'd be spending most of the evening pushing green plastic around.

Instead, I got to thinking about a small unit of Nob bikers. With a Warboos, they'd be scoring and they're always good to put the hurt on.

Warboss, Warbike, Big Choppa, Bosspole

4 Nob Bikers, Painboy, Power Klaw, Waaagh Banner

So, you've got 5 very killy bikers, all differently armed for wound allocation shenanigans. The Warboss has a Choppa over the ubiquitous Klaw in order to try and take advantage of the fact he's I5 on the charge.

Now, we need some Boyz to back up this initial charge and some way for them to get around. Since we can't spam Trukks in this competition, let's go with a Battlewagon.

20 Slugga Boyz, Nob, Power Klaw, Bosspole

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

The Boyz have a pretty standard load out but the 'wagon has been properly pimped in order to keep it on the move. I'm hoping that since there won't be any Land Raiders or Monoliths, not many people will take Lascannons.

All of that leaves me with just 90 points to play with. I am slightly tempted to take some Lootas but I want this army to be an all or nothing charge and I want the last 90 Points to fit in with a Speed Freaks theme:

Deffkopta, Twin-Linked Rokkit Launcher

Deffkopta, Twin-Linked Rokkit Launcher

Since they're Jetbikes, I think that Deffkoptas should be exempt from the 'only one vehicle' rule. However, if they're not then I would replace one with a Warbuggy with Twin-Linked Rokkit Launcher instead.

  1. Too bad you can't have SC in the Club Challange. Wazdakka and only biker as troops would be a cool army at 750.
    I do like your list though. You could hide the bikers behind the BW and keep them safe for a couple of turns. I wouldn't really recomend a big choppa for a power klaw though.

  2. Hmm, I'm not convinced that the Bikers will need 2 Power Klaws though. With the Big Choppa the 'boss is I5 S8 A5 on the charge which gives him a chance take out any Space Marines before they get to swing back.
