An Ork List, 1850ish

Well, after mulling over what I want to do for the Team Tournament in Adepticon, I decided the best way for me to get a feel for Orks was to make an army list with them, then make the team aspects around them.  So, here's the list:
(remember, this is like 1900 or something.  I want points to be able to tweak as I will)

Big Mekk w/ KFF, Bosspole, Attack Squig, Klaw

8 Nobz w/ Painboy, Waaagh! Banner, 2 Klaws, 5 'Uge Choppas, Cybork Bodies, Stikkbombs, etc.
18 Boyz w/ PK Nob, etc.
10 Gretchin

15 Kommandos w/ Snikrot, Burna
15 Lootas
15 Burna Boyz

Battlewagon w/ Deffrolla, Red Paint, Boarding Planks
Battlewagon w/ Deffrolla, Red Paint, Boarding Planks
Battlewagon w/ Deffrolla, Red Paint, Boarding Planks


Ghaz rides with the Boyz to give them an extra punch- the Nobz have no need of extra punch.  If they do, I'll put another PK in there.  If they need more punch after that, Ghaz will very likely not make a huge difference.  If he would, he can still fit in the wagon :)

The Burna Boyz get the KFF Mek in there, who gets 5 PK attacks.  I'm not 100% on him being as decked out as he is- he isn't amazing in combat, but the Burnas at least get a Bosspole with him, as well as some reasonable anti-tank for the Boarding Planks they get, after I Deffroll something.

The Kommandos are for help against gunlines, which will end up being a big deal, I think.  It's either them or another 20-boyz wagon (I can fit another wagon in by putting one assigned to the Nobz).

I don't really think this list lacks too much.  If anything, I'm not at all a fan of how few scoring units I have, but one (the nobz) are more durable than just about any troop squad out there.  The 18 boyz are somewhat of a liability, but as long as I use them wisely (i.e. not charge them into a big squad of Berzerkers or something, lol) they should last long enough.  They're kinda good as bait as well, for my Nobz to counter-charge in for later.

Burna Boyz are awesome on paper.  I guess we'll see how good they are when the shit hits the fan.  I'll hopefully be playing this list on Thursday, to test it out.

Let me know what you think.  What would you change?  Any tweaks that would make me more efficient?

Seems light on the anti-armor at range. Drop the Lootas to a smaller size and you can fit in rokkit Buggies or Koptaz to give you more units to suppress enemy tanks with.
