Cheapest Wound Tricks With Nobz

This is nothing new to most of you 40K veterans, but it is fairly new to my gaming group. Actually, the concept isn't new at all, but actually getting to use it is. Our resident ork player doesn't like the idea of having to remove multi-wound models as wounds are accumulated... he would rather spread them around the unit. Unfortunately, his mob of nobz is just two sets of Black Reach nobz, so they're all identical. So that his army list will need the least amount of tweaking, I wanted to figure out the cheapest (points-wise) way to add a painboy and equip each model differently just as a mental exercise. This is what I came up with... correct me if I missed something.

Nob #1 (Slugga/Choppa)
Nob #2 (Slugga/Choppa/'Eavy Armor)
Nob #3 (Slugga/Choppa/Bosspole)
Nob #4 (Slugga/Choppa/Ammo Runt)
Nob #5 (Slugga/Big Choppa)
Nob #6 (Twin-Linked Shoota/Choppa)
Nob #7 (Kombi-Rokkit/Choppa)
Nob #8 (Kombi-Rokkit/Choppa/Ammo Runt)
Nob #9 (Kombi-Skorcha/Choppa)
Painboy

Total: 271

Now, honestly... I wouldn't really like this setup at all. I want at least two power klaws, I think, and I'm not a big fan of the kombi-rokkits at all. Also, I know Jeremiah will want to do whatever it takes to make his saves better. So realistically, I think the squad will eventually look something like:

Nob #1 (Slugga/Choppa/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body)
Nob #2 (Slugga/Power Klaw/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body)
Nob #3 (Slugga/Power Klaw/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body)
Nob #4 (Slugga/Big Choppa/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body)
Nob #5 (Twin-Linked Shoota/Choppa/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body)
Nob #6 (Twin-Linked Shoota/Choppa/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body)
Nob #7 (Kombi-Skorcha/Choppa/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body)
Nob #8 (Slugga/Choppa/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body/Bosspole)
Nob #9 (Slugga/Choppa/'Eavy Armor/Cybork Body/Waaagh! Banner)
Painboy

Total: 420

It's about an extra 150 points, but it's a lot more deadly... I'm not looking forward to seeing the battlewagon carrying these guys...
