Well, today is the day. I finalized my list and posted it below.
It is a good idea to pull you models out and take a solid look at them from across the table if you have not played that army in a while just to make sure all your "t's" are crossed.
I did that and as a result I took out/off anything that made me go "mmm". This freed up a bit of points and a lobba unit was born.
I have also been on a boy building spree and built another 25 or so odd boyz yesterday. this leaves me with maybe 45 odd orks; 20 boyz and then various pain boyz, dozen or so nobs, etc.
after that it is on to the kans, and retrofitting the vehicles.
