How do you work this? When you buy a card of Nobs (or the Nobs that are
part of the Klan) they are a DETACHMENT! This means they must stay within
6cm of each other at all times! You CANNOT seperate them! Now I know its
true of extra Boyz cards, but I'm not sure if extra Nobz become part of the
bigger Nobz formation of the Klan. They may or may not, but the issue here
is that you can't break up the stands within a formation to place them
wherever you please. You buy a Card of 4 Nobz, they must stay within 6cm
of each other. Pure and simple.

Nice tactic. Purely illegal.

I don't bother with Shokks against Titans (use your Traktor Kannons for
that). They are better for heavy tanks and Superheavies. Plus they can
sow HUGE amounts of trouble when fired into large formations of Devastator
infantry. They become engaged in Close Combat and so can't fire. Great fun.

Great Gargants aren't O.K., they're Great (pun intended)! They are simply
the toughest, coolest Titans in the game. I ALWAYS take at least one, but
usually three. Mega-Gargants suck. Sure they're a company card, but I can
get two Klans for the price of one Mega-Gargant. Better value.

Good advice. The light, fast vehicles of the Orks are a major strength.

If an Ork army draws first blood, its a win no matter what the real outcome!
