T Minus 24 days til the Bay Area Open

So with the Bay Area Open less than 30 days away I am starting to put the brain gears in motion to make sure I do better this showing than last.
I did learn last year that 4 Battlewagons is too many, and that I needed some more support.

With that said here is the list I plan on bringing.

HQ
Ghaz – Duh!
Big Mek – KFF,  PK and Cybork

Elite
6 Lootas
6 Lootas

Troops
Diversified Nobz – 1 PK / Waagh Banner, 1 PK / Bosspole, 1 PK, 1 Big Choppa / Bosspole, 1 Big Choppa, 1 Slugga /Choppa, 1 Painboy with Cybork. All with Cyborks and Stikkbombs!
Dedicated Transport – Battlewagon with Deffrolla, Red Paint, Armor Plates, Big Shoota and a Boarding Plank.
 17 Slugga / Choppa boys + 1 Nob with PK and Bosspole
19 Shoota boyz with 2 Rokkit Launchas + 1 Nob with PK and Bosspole
10 Gretchin and a Runtherder.

Fast Attack
Deffkopta with TL Rokkits and a Buzzsaw

Heavy Support

This is a more balanced attempt at a BW Rush with some ideas on how to deal with Grey Knights.
Get my Deffkoptas into the Dreads ASAP!
Do not assault a Purifier squad! (DUH!!)
Try to out maneuver to gain the upper hand, let them come to me and rolla in hard!!
I think the key to beating GK with orks is to get the match ups you want. I have had a hell of a time with Shunting Dreadknights getting into my backfield and incinerating my Lootas, so I will have to tarpit them with my boyz. The army itself ignoring FnP and all armor makes it very annoying and tough to deal with.

I can only hope for some hot dice and  some favorable match ups.

Regardless, I know the Bay Area Open will be fun and I look forward to seeing some of our readers there!
