LOOTAS!!!
Burnas are ok cause they count as power weapons in close combat, but beyond that they are mediocre at best.
Lootas good range str 7 D3 shots!

Your choice Danny, fancy autocannons, or power weapons. (Which would do better against MEQ AND GEQ? hmmmm?) Wink

I like the look of the burnas over the lootas myself. but really its if you want ranged units or close combat units

Lootas are better imo. Burnas can stay in certain mobs where they belong... a whole unit of them running at any player is just asking to be gunned down.

Give your opponent a choice of targets to shoot at (i.e. the mega-armoured Nobz w/ brainboy or the burnas.)

That's an expensive way to do that imo.

When I played against lootas, they were a constant annoyance. A very good unit when used with lots of Orks running up the board.

It's just a suggestion. I really have no say in how Danny builds his boyz.

well it might be expensive to play burnas showing as they would be prime targets but maybe with a truck they might just get some action in

first of all not all orks love charging... second of all lootas will not most likely get in to combat and third... i think they are both good choices
