Do any of you guys use the Ork Klans list? if so:

- Which Klans are good for which ships (e.g. I would guess Evil Sunz are great with Brutes).

- Which Klan would you take for each of the battleship options?

e.g. I'm looking at the Kroolboy and wondering if Deffskulls and their looted lances would be a good choice (18 30cm lances seems pretty insane). Are heavy gunz better or should I opt for a Deathdeala instead with its front bombardment cannon?

Yes I know Gorbag's Revenge is considered the best option, but the mini I have has massive guns all over the front.

You'd only get 6 lances, not 18. You are replacing each battery with a str 2 lance battery.

Personally If you are set on kroolboy, I'd go bad moonz for the re roll on the bad firepower dice.

a largeish group of savages could be a good target for deffskulls as you can get some long range lances without sacrificing too much, and they are fairly hardy for escorts with a 6+ front.

Ahh yes, well that sucks.

As you say, I'll stick to Savages for my Deffskull contingent. Maybe a torpedo Kill Kroozer to babysit them.

I'll probably run the Battleship as Dethdeala. 6 Bombardment Cannons seems quite handy and rather fitting. Either Bad Moonz or Evil Sunz seems good in that case.

Are Goffs of any use? I've never really managed to do much boarding in games but then again I've never played Orks.

from memory... yes. very much yes. if you get some warbosses (esp if you take the earlier list that doubles boarding value for having a boss on board), mega nobz, goff, and most importanly... telyporta! then you don't need to actually base contact in order to one shot enemy capital ships. It's brutal.

Ramming on the other hand, very hard

I don't think you can use the Goff Clan rules with the Warlord that doubles boarding value as they're from different lists. (Better warlord is from Ork Pirates and Armageddon War lists). Still, sounds like fun. Will definitely build at least one Goff Kroozer. Any thoughts on Zukov's Klaw?

ah possibly not then, sorry, been a while since I properly reviewed any bfg stuff, let alone ork!

I'l lhave a nosy at zukov now and let you know:

Edit:

It's pretty great, 6 assult boats is really good, with the +1 from being goff in the boarding... yeah a nice specialised craft. Would sit well along side a terror or two who are send out the waves of fighter bomber support.
