I'm looking to build my first Ork army.   :yes   From lurking on the forums, reading the Index, and my best guesses here's what I've put together:

 

HQ-Warboss w/ Big Choppa, shot, and attack squid (64 pts) 
Troop-Boyz 27x w/ Boss Nob, big choppa (177 pts) 
Troop-Boyz 27x w/ Boss Nob, big choppa (177 pts) 
Elite-Nob with Waaagh! Banner and kustom shoota(79 pts) 

Total: 497 pts

 

The goal is to get my boyz up close and personal for a good krump! I really like that the Warboss lets you charge after advancing, and the Nob with Waaagh! banner giving +1 to hit is really sweet. If you add the Green Tide rule (another +1 to attack) mah boyz should destroy. Am I understanding these rules correctly?  Did I calculate the point cost correctly?  Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help!

Solid list.  If you wanted mobility.  You could drop a boyz squad and swap it for stormboyz, and replace the warboss with a weirdboy.  Then the waagh banner isn't as useful though.

A solid start. Since Orks are specialized, you may want to add tankbustas and/or fast attack choices as you expand your army. Something to deal with flyers and vehicles. Lootas are also a solid choice. panzee/dark panzee (whatever they are called now) will stay away from footslogging boyz.

I'm hopping when I upgrade to around 1000 pts, I can add a fast-attack like the Stormboyz, and some Lootas.  I want to add another Troop as well.  (probably another 30 boyz.)

I really like this little list as it seems to have everything you need for a 500pt game, Solid sized Troop choices, with a Warboss as backup, and the good old Waaagh Banner to enhance the units in question.

Sure, your missing some quick units (like Stormboyz, and Flyers), but they can be added when you further upgrade the points level of your games.

 

Onwards and Upwards.

SG.
