(funny) Names for an ork army? kool orky pics/minis/converzionz? I guess just a general ork thread. (Anyone know when the last ork codex came out, and when if another has been mentioned to be in the works?)

ill post some orky stuff meanwhile...

Last Ork Codex came out in 2007. No new one announced yet.

The current Ork codex is fairly solid. They don't need a new one, especially when compared to the likes of the Tau or the Necrons.

thanks

Tau are fine. Necrons are in a bad spot, though they're supposed to be coming out after Grey Knights (the next codex), so sometime next year.

Orks are...a good army to learn how to play 40k against. I'll leave it at that.

There's not enough Spess Mehreens in this thread!

You know what my favorite chapter is? Space Wolves. Because they're the best chapter and more interesting than every other army in the game! I think they should do more Space Marine chapter codices!

>> No.13044838

>>13044761
Pssh.... bullshit they don't. The current Ork codex is a shoddy rush-job product, made by someone who clearly didn't know shit about the army to begin with.

I will agree with you however, that Tau and Necrons certainly need a new codex worse. But what we DON'T need is more Space Marine crap. Which, btw, Grey Knights are next...

>> No.13044858

yea i just recently started gathering up a small ork army and havent bought or looked at the codex...i just hate when i buy a codex and then a new one comes out a few months later or becomes not so great (e.g. black templars, dark angels, the last couple SM codex's)

i just love the conversion possibilites...ive always been into the modeling/painting aspect of warhammer...and ork models have alot of character and are just fun.

Holy shit. some of these models are bad ass, I never knew they existed. im currently painting up the squad of orks you get from the black reach pack. any tips?

Tau are NOT fine. They are generally overpriced and you can't field markerlights reliably in the 5th edition environment.

hmm...well the way i paint my ork flesh is pretty basic and looks good i think...i use dark angels as a base...snot green next (leaving the DA in the muscle recesses) and a quick highlight of Snot green+golden yellow...kinda cartoonish/vibrant look to the skin...also devlan mud ink is very good/quick/easy way to give great shading


pic is NOT mine...however this is very similar to how the skin comes out with the way i do it

Yes you can. They're called Pathfinders. Especially since, I dunno, 5th specifically overwrote the old rules for Dedicated Transports. It's not like you're going to be footslogging Firewarriors anyway...

Also, Crisis Suits, Kroot, and Broadsides are still underpriced. It's only if you go for a pure-mech Tau list that overpricing becomes apparent.

Extremely static unit in a army that has to be mechanized and mobile. It doesn't work.

have a ton of grot tank pics....my idea for my army started out as using tiny grot tanks instead of ork boyz...tons of tiny ramshackled sputtering tanks the size of a go-kart rumbling into the battlefied...for now im stalled seeing as this plan would be kind of expensive....anyone know if flames of war tanks would be a fitting size?

Semi-mech>mech>Pure foot. The only mobility you need is to deny the enemy from getting to your shooty units. Between sacrificial MSU moveblocking, and blowing up metal boxes, Tau can turn an enemy advance into a crawl.

FoW is 1/100 scale.
Go to onwar.com or wikipedia and check out the size of a given vehicle. The length in meters is the model's length in cm.
Example- A T-34 is 6m long so a FoW model is about 6 cm.

Though the rules for Gorkamorka are a free download, there's never going to be a rerelease, at least not an official one. If anyone was interested in a fan-remake though...

>> No.13045377

>>13045307
They did rerelease Gorka Morka.

Kustom vehicle rules are best left as House Rules. As no gaming club bothers to play it anyways... Unless they get smart, and do a combined Necromunda+GorkaMorka Ash-Waste campaign.
