Would like some advice on what HQ unit to take?

Current Assault Group:

10 Elite Nobz, 338 Points
5 Elite Nobz, 199 Points

10 Boyz plus Nobz Leader, 126 Points
10 Boyz plus Nobz Leader, 126 Points

10 Gretchin plus Runtherd, 40 Points

Total: 829
Needed: 1000

Just bought Mad Dok Grotsnik and finished custom modifying Ork Big Mek with Power Klaw and Kustom Force Field. Basically removed his current arm resting on his axe and replaced it with a Nobz Power Klaw.

Thanks!!

You migjht want to take a Warboss as a HQ choice. It would make one of your Nob squads a troop choice.

It should be a Warboss. You really need to get rid of your deathstar unit and throw in some more boys though.

What is the deathstar unit? When I read some of these lists that are created, they do not take many nobz but have tons of boys? Is there a good reason for this? I know I am asking novice questions but I started this hobby for the painting and just now getting into the game itself. Thanks!

Well a deathstar is pumping all your points into one unit. The reason you see everyone taking so many boys is that they are just so cheap, and die very quickly, so you need alot of bodies.

Space Marines vs. Orks

I was looking at how the space marines play out and they are higher point costs but they also kill pretty well. That was the idea behind going with the NOBZ.. Something to hit into the space marines and not get killed off right away. Without having much experience with real game play, do NOBZ actually last / do damage on the battle field or do they just die quickly also so its better to just take more boyz? If you had 1000 points to use what would you suggest?

I am supposed to be playing 1000 point Blood Angels in 2 weeks.

I assume you are making this list based off the models you have, so I'll try and tailor some advise.

Try and incorprate an upgrade for a pain boss into your nob squad. You'll enjoy FNP.

Also, try and get some Power first in each squad. They are actaully your death dealers

I do have power klaws in each of them.. I also do have alot more models. A total of 3000 points worth of Orks now but I started this hobby just for painting so I am rather novice putting together groups and actually playing. I also just finished a Forgeworld Kil Blasta Tank now. Thanks.

Has anyone ever used the Forge World Ork Kil Blasta Tank before during game play? Is it worth the points? Thanks
