Ork Nob weapon options....

Post  ScottRadom on Sun May 15, 2011 7:01 pm

I'm putting together a few ork nobs for eBay and stuff and I was wondering, what are the best/most popular weapon options for them? I have no clue what is most game effective and may as well find out what people typically arm their nobz with. Thanks for any help!

Some kids like Cybork Bodies. Only reason I don't run Cybork is because I can't stomach the conversion.

Fists are popular, but not too many. Waaaagh Banners are hawt, everyone should have a Waaaagh Banner in their nobz mob. WS 5 is for winners.

I dunno... don't go on my recommendation alone, see what Tom has to say.

Painboyz are cool... mmmm painboys (that and they're required for Cybork bodies)

Oh... My Nobz Mob (which should by no means be thought of as "optimal", more gimmicky)

7 Nobs
1 w\ Power Klaw and Waaagh Banner (I'd love to split these accross two separate orcs, for wound allocation)
1 w\ Big Choppa (for wound allocation)
1 upgrade to Painboy with a little grot buddy dude.

Sometimes I stick 'em in a Trukk with nothing special on the truck (might paint it red, when I paint it)

The cool kids like to split up the gear for the Nobz so they can allocate wounds to "unique Nobz" and avoid removing whole models. Some of the pro's can give you some optimization tips for that.

Sorry, I'm ignorant here. Do units of regular boyz not get one of them upgraded to a Nob as well? I'm just painting these up to sell, so I won't be doing a unit of nobz. Just a couple here and there. At least that's what I was hoping to do. Is that still an option for Orc shoota and slugga boyz?

If you're doing individual nobz to sell there's only 1 way that people play them, Power Klaw + Bosspole, for the upgrade nob in a boyz unit.

Ya....this mix would provide you the best bang for your buck.

If you want to add a big of variety to your models, you could potentially add Heavy Armour....

He means 'Eavy Armour. But yeah, every single nob (squad leader nob) in 40K has a power klaw, and most have bosspoles. The 'Eavy Armour and Bosspole options give you some neat convertin' opportunities. I look forward to seeing some Radomesque Nobz!
