6th (ed) has done a number to our Orks for better or worse. I find that Nobs in boyz mobs are disappearing from lists here and there as the old hymn of "take nob with powerklaw and bosspole and the jobs a good 'un" for the hidden powerfist in 5th isn't working out so well in 6th.
*Biker Nobs are still fierce with the new T5 which kinda makes up for the nerf to FnP. Does anyone still take painboys? Or are you guys just taking eavy armor instead? Is anyone still equipping them differently?
*Big Choppa's dont negate any type of armor save but can be useful to take out light tanks. (still...WtF??? since when did a great big green ape with a chainsaw for a sword not be able to cut through even a t-shirt save?) Are Nobs on foot still as terrible of an idea as they were in 5th? Paper trukks are fragile for transportation as ever and battlewagons got nerfed as well, although last a helluva lot longer than looted wagons and trukks combined. A KFF Big Mek doesn't seem to go as far as it once did either way.
*All in all we Orks NEED powerklaws. I dont see the point of trying to hide them anymore in boyz mobs so it looks like taking pure nobs mobs are the way to go unless you want to tinker around with some Meganobs. How do you equip yours? There's been talk about using smaller squads of around 5 or so instead of the usual 7-8 we saw in 5th.
your tactical advice please!
