Ork Boyz Sprue
Ork Boyz Sprue Review
Ork boyz are the staple of your Ork army! As you can see from the spruce, you can make up to 10 pieces of model.From the spruce you can see that you can make up to 10 Boyz and 1 Nob, but the box only includes 10 round bases. So you just need to get another base from any online bits shop to make it 11! :)

The number of bits in this boxed set is good! You can see by the sprues that after assembling your desired 10 models, there are still loads of bits you can keep. If you buy enough boxes and keep all the unused bits,you can make cheap Tankbustas, 'Ard Boyz, Flash Gitz, or Stikbommas.
There isn't much complaint on the Boyz, they are very highly customizable! Just make sure you stick them properly on the base and adjust the torso accordingly to prevent them from falling over (don't put the torso too forward or it will tumble over quite easily).
For the Nob...its legs look puny and the left arm is fixed to be lifted up. If you don't want his arm to be high up in the air, you need to cut the extra part and probably use putty to change it's angle. Other than that, it looks pretty good.
Pros : Value for money, very customizable, details are very good, lots of extra bits that can be used in other models (Orks or not)
Cons : Nobz's left shoulder (the one with the Power Klaw) is fixed to only one proper angle, making it hard to customize unless some cutting is done. Nobz's legs looks puny and doesn't really fit the bigger torso. Why didn't they give an extra base to let us make it 11 models??
Final Verdict : You need this in any ork army, so go get yours now! In fact, you might to have to get two of them. :)
