Drop the runtherd.  Just take another 11 gretchin or put points elsewhere.  He's all but useless since he costs more then the gretchin he'd save by taking him.

With 6 troops maybe you could consider the brigade.

I agree on the runtherd.
I would argue the same for the painboy.

You can't have that many elites in a battalion.

Battalion is 0-6 elites, brigade is 3-8.

 

The brigade sounds nice.  But I would have to come up with 3 Fast Attacks and 2 Heavies....  I think elites are where it's at for blood axes.  Between special cover rules, armor, and a 1 CP deep strike I think it may pay off.

Well if you need heavies, two smasha guns are 30 points a pop.  (Pretty cheap, and the most effective gun in the codex by far).  Fast for blood axes, I'd do deff koptas.  Fits with the whole scheme (if you wanted to run a brigade)

Well, I'd give your warboss the Da Killa Klaw personally. Its infinitely better than a regular PK.  You can spend 1 CP for the extra gubbinz stratagem, give the Finkin Cap to your weirdboy, and have him take the Follow Me, Ladz stratagem to get the CP back.  Basically, free hat and warboss abilities for your Weirdboy.  If you're running blood axes, I'd honestly drop the trukk on the tankbustas.  The whole point in the trukk is to get them somewhere safely, right? Why not save yourself the points on the trukk and use the blood axe stratagem to get them in nice and close? You're already planning on using Da Jump on your weirdboy, so why not use him to deep strike your boyz mobs instead? I'd then drop the painboy and runtherd because they're honestly pretty useless, and spend the points you save on getting your boyz mobs plussed up, and anything remaining on plussing up your kommandos.

I take it you are going to mob up both units of kommandos when they arrive for 25 boyz strong charge?

A decent size unit like that with Snikrot in support should make a mess of anything it hits.
