Just wanted to say earlier I had a Ork nob with power Klaw leading a squad of boyz. And the Nob sucseded in destroying a leamon Russ and a Leamon russ Demoiser.

Pleas share any storys u have of your heroic Ork Nobs

10 Nobs with a Waaagth Banner, Dok, Cybork Bodies and 'eavy Armour walked across the table (4th ed) and slaughted 20 marines all the cause of proving Tac Marines weren't the best troop in the game as a Staff member had claimed.

Also Boss Snikrot leading a unit of Kommandos is such a fearsome prospect that I've won games based on my opponent trying to counter him.

In one game my Nob unit managed to take down a Hive Tyrant and two Carnifexes.

Sole survivor of a mob (and one grunt) took out 2 tactical squads in combat...revenge is sweet.

I love Ork Nobz! Don't we all? Ok, our skumgrodz don't. But we Orks sure do!

Many a time has a Power Klaw nob taken down something big... Once, my PK 'Ard Nob and Warboss delivered a devastating hail of PK attacks to a Panzee Autarch. If even one connected... Yeah, he died messily. I adore causing masses of Power Klaw-related deff, an' each Mob getz a Nob that can do that... I love Orks.

I hate Ork Nobz, especially the kind with power klaws. But then I don't play Orks, so I would hate them, wouldn't I? :p

Sometimes I run a unit of 10 Nobz+Painboy with 'eavy Armour, 4 Power Klaws and 6 Big Choppas. When you throw a Warboss in there and put them in a Battlewagon with a Deff Rolla theres not much they CANT do. Its a 400+ pt. points sink but its totally worth it, as every model in the unit is completely rock-hard!

I love Nobz...

you guys should try the deffwing type army, my 1500 point army has 2 warbosses in mega armour with squigs, 4 sqauds of 5 MA nobs all riding around in battlewagons, damn scary army to face

3 attacks each, 4 on the charge, hitting a MEQ a 4 and killing him on a 2 with 2 wounds each and a 2 up armour save

and thanks to 5th ed letting all close combat attacks hit the rear armour of vehicles it just decimated an imperial guard armoured company

10 Nobs with;
2 Power Klaws
2 'uge Choppas
and a Painboy.
They all had 'eavy armour and Cybork Bodies

no waaagh banner? its always nice to have +1 ws

07-03-2009, 20:57
I find it's only useful against Ws4 opponents.
I save the points to spend elsewhere.

07-03-2009, 21:18
true enough but there are a lot of marine armies out there and its only 15pts, i for one would never leave a waaagh banner out of an army and was gutted when i heard mega nobs cant have one, maybe that would be broken

I feel like its too expensive to give all the Nobz in the unit 'Eavy armour AND Cybork Bodies. As long as I steer them away from power weapons and AP1, 2 weapons, Feel No Pain, 4+ armour save, and 2 wounds each are enough for me.

the unit tends to get stuck in against some tough units where they don't get normal saves or FnP.
also they're probably going to get IDed.

they attract a lot of attention so get the requisite protection.

07-03-2009, 22:56
id go with a battlewagon if you can afford it, keep it open topped and red paint job, good amount of protection there
