Hey... with Ard Boyz coming up

I will have to prepare for that one too. So here are some thoughts on the game.

One, I will probably play some form of Orks, most likely nob bikerz. Now there are two thoughts to this list.

List A: 30 Nob bikerz with some small other stuff. Yup, 30 of the bastards. Most games I ended up destroying a ton of the army with one squad, with the other playing backup and clean up. With 30, I can effectively sacrifice 2 squads to eating the other army. 30 nobz shooting at you at 24 inches is pretty scary.

List b: Normal nob biker army, but add 3 squads of lootas, mixed with either a kill kannon BW or 2 or 3 looted Kill Kannon wagons. That's a ton of shoots to throw at any opponent, with most people having to worry about which squad to deal with, mixed with nobz coming at you fast and furious.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Personally, I would go with the 30 bikers.

I think it would be worth it for just the "What the fuck is this shit?!?" moment for your opponents, and it should be nasty enough for a placing to make it to round two where you can adjust a little if needed.

I know, but hell, it means I need 10 more bikers. And that will be a pain to build up, the other army I pretty much have. Or at least want to get the additions too, ie the gun wagons.

But yeah, WTF are all these bikers and... AAIIIE!!! They hurtsie me!!!

Did you get my email?

I think both lists are fine, but in the end...if you want shooty support, lootas + big shoota warbuggies are king in my mind.

That is what I am thinking. I just have this itching feeling that all the 30 nob army, will get broken by people doing fear the darkness and finding ways to just kill 1 or two nobz and breaking the army. With this, I can throw two, have stuff that shoots wave serpants down, and then some boyz to help get me the objectives.
