Going to my first tournament since LVO, which will also be my first 2000 point games since then. I'm taking the same list I took to LVO, but since the list I previously posted wasn't the one I ended up taking, I wanted to post the correct list, for record keeping:

I went 3-3 at LVO with this list. It will have major problems against multiple fliers, especially if they have high volume weaponry, but it controls table space well and deals with other horde lists very well. I don't know how it would fare against the meta-knight list, as I didn't face one at LVO. The nob bikers are my guilty pleasure, my unique snowflake element. I was generally happy with them, and want to keep trying them until I am sure of how they perform.

Overall I think it looks pretty good! I'm just assuming one weirdboy has "da jump" and another has "warpath" to buff up boyz squads and that the 10man boy squad is there to mob up with a 30man blob. It's much more of a boyz horde than I play but I think it can work out pretty darn well. How are you utilising the warboss though, just for trying to keep everything fearless?
 
IK are probably going to be an issue, the good thing is that other than you smasha guns and nob bikers a Castellan doesn't have any good targets. 

I assume that you're getting the Kult of Speed detachment to be able to move those nob bikers further, and unlock that 2d6" consolidation. Remember that an imperial knight can't fall back over bikes so there could be some utility in "charge through 'em" just to sorround a melee oriented knight (such as the castellan) and just tank some hits. Probably won't come up too often but it's a neat trick to have. Note however, that the kult of speed warlord trait is beyond useless as it makes the bikers fearless in your turn, not battleround. So unless you're planning to lose almost all of them in overwatch then always choose another trait.

Also remember that da jumping grots can be real good in the endgame for getting to random objectives, table corners etc

You basically nailed it. Warpath, Da Jump, and Fists of Gork are the powers I go for most often (though I did take Da Krunch once), and the small boy unit is indeed to mob up with the other choppa unit. That is a particular strategy I'm going to move away from, but until I get another unit of grots ready, I'll stick with it.

 

I hadn't realized that about the Kult of Speed warlord trait, but to be honest, I wasn't ever going to consider taking it. The Warboss on Bike isn't a Speed Freek, so he doesn't get Kult of Speed, so I would have to spend a command point on the extra specialist warlord trait and even if the trait was always, it wouldn't be worth it. Good catch, though.

 

I do love jumping grots, and sometimes another weirdboy to get in range of psychic powers.
