I've always been under the impression that they don't take into account BS (or WS) for points values.  Just look at the costs of the Ork dreadnought against the beakie contemptor dreadnought.  They're pretty similar but the beakie dreadnought (with a decent gun) hits on a 2+ whilst the ork (with a less good gun) hits on a 5+

 

Also really hope they don't nerf the FW stuff to BS 5+, that made some of the things really appealing.

Do dreadnoughts hit on a 2+? Mine in the index hits on a 3?

You can make great shooting armies in 40k but you'll really want to include a couple blobs of shoota boyz to round it out.

Flashgitz are terrific, I'd make sure to maximize them.

I think FW is supposed to be positioned as "options" not must take or appealing choices.  They should be balanced along side the codex, not better then.  Otherwise its a type of pay to win.  Want to shoot better? Just pay 250 dollars for this FW model! woooo

 

GW now has seminars at the bigger conventions (Adepticon, Nova, LVO probably).  They talk about upcoming releases, changes, and also take questions, then usually have a demo of a new product (necromunda at nova).

 

They also have other types of seminars (gaming, painting with duncan) as well.

There are orks that have a 4+ bs. Right now the issue is that they hamstring many ork options by not giving them enough shots to overcome he 5+.

That was literally the reason i was going to buy a meka-dread.  best hold off until the rules update.

 

I've asked the rules boys how much it would cost to make orks BS 4+.  Have not yet had a reply; thought i might do a kick-starter for it.
