<Sigh>. Ork Nobz are like any other formation. They must remain within
6cm (NOT 10cm) of at least one other stand from the same formation. In
addition to this formation restriction, non-Command Ork units must remain
within 10cm of an Ork Command stand to be able to receive orders or they
often do silly stuff. Yes, the problem with Orks IS their Command
structure (like the Imperial Guard). I'm not sure its if clear in the
NetEpic rules, but Ork players should look very closely at the nature of
the cards they buy and whether or not they join the main formation of the
Klan they are bought under (like extra Boyz stands or Battlewagonz) or if
they become a seperate detachment (like Speedstas, Shokk Attak Gunz and
most of the Tanks).

To address the problems you have with Speedstaz, simply buy an extra card
of Nobz Warbikez for them. I love Nobz Warbikez. They are the best. I'll
often use a card of them to command a Speedsta group.
