So as we sit and design out Ard Boyz armies to test out, we have started to find small holes in the different lists.
First list off the block was the 30 nob biker army. Most armies don't seem to have much of a chance with 24 inch turbo boosting boyz and Snikrot to make the sandwich. We tested, and just found that so many things just roll up and die to this, then we found something that just crushes the bikers. Deff rolla Battle Wagons.
Any failed 4 up from the nob bikerz is a dead dude. And with a Battle Wagon causing d6 of them as they drive around, just makes for some gross idiocy. Add in a small squad of Mega Armor Nobz, and you got a nice counter assault for the bikerz, that will probably die, but will cause enough power klaw wounds to cause damage. And being cheaper, since 5 of them is only 200 points, and should be able to kill off the bikerz during one round of assault when mixed in with Ghaz. And yes, this list throws down Ghaz to give you a nice round of fearlessness and some more super killie dude. Mix in some Snikrot action, and you get a fun little game where you can attach Ghaz to Snikrot's squad. Thus when they become available, Ghaz gets to come from behind and give a massive headbutt.
So what does this mean? Well I decided to combine the lists. Many games with Nob bikerz, have shown me that I can kill 1750+ with just one squad of bikerz. Mix in two, and you can usually kill most stuff. But when you add in some other bits from the biker killing army list, and now you got something that can take out Bikerz, very easily and quickly, so you can concentrate on the other bits.
Anyway onto the list.

Plans for the army, obviously Mega Armored Nobz with Ghaz in the BW, running around the board. And then the two Nob Bikerz running around doing damage. The two shoota squads, running towards objectives to sit on them and everything else just trying to work together. I have all of this already, so will see how it tests out.
Heavy: Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Big Shoota (2)
