Deff-Rollas are back! 1850 Rolla Mob

By Rob Baer | February 24th, 2010 | Categories: Nob Bikers, Orks, Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Army Lists

Back a year or so ago I had a pretty good hybrid Battlewagon Nob Biker list going. Of course it worked good till the INAT game out and nerfed it. But now it’s back and with a few tweeks I think still competitive.

The main tactic of the army is to either pincer with the Battlewagons, and the nob bikers OR use the Battlewagons to block LOS to the bikers themselves, until it’s too late.  Secondary roles of the wagons are to crack armor open for the rest of the mob to get stuck in with.

The Trukks are mostly expendable just there for playing grab ass with table quarters or to pick on smaller squads and lightly armored threats.  

I mostly used the Grots to come on from reserve to hold objectives / screen the Lootas.

What I like most about this list is that their really is a lot of threats to be dealt with. Do you shoot the Wagons and get hit back with the Lootas, or shoot the Lootas and ignore the Wagons?  Plus the Nobz are no joke themselves, and you can’t really let two Trukks of Orks zoom around untouched.

The only draw back IMHO in this list is that the Lootas are almost always vulnerable because they will be on their own, either on a flank to shoot around the wagons, OR in the backfield shooting past them.
