I can smell the cheese from here.

I'm not too sure if he had a legal army to take all the shokkies. there are
quite restrictive rules on the amount of mekboy cards. 2 for deathskulls
(?), speed freaks and blood axes, and one for the rest. He'd need to take
the deathskulls, freaks and blood axes and the badmoons to fit in the mech
cards, or two and two more. I remember seeing an ork army with almost
nothing but shokkies as support, and they constantly won, until I pointed
out to the other players that they were mech boy cards and you couldn't take
them willy nilly. Now that started an argument.

Another point to this is the terrain. Last game I saw the amount of terrain
was commented on by 40K and WFB players as being far too much, while I
thought there was too little. Terrain really cuts the effectiveness of
shokkies back a lot. yes they have unlimited range, but they can only shoot
what they can see.
