Hey guys,

I am currently recovering from an accident at work (fell from about 12 feet up onto concrete floor), and am off work for a few weeks.

I ordered a massive amount of orks that should arrive tomorrow and I can't wait for them to get in, problem is right now I'm going mad of boredom.

I have an ork codex pdf but I'm pretty sure it's 4th edition, everything is black and white and a lot of the rules seem dated.

If anyone could provide me a link to a 5E pdf that would be a huge favor.

There isn't a 5th edition Ork Codex. Games Workshop hates us, everyone we know, all our pets, everything we've ever done, and everything we stand for.

Then the codex I have must be seriously dated... it has no pictures or anything, and it's pretty old looking... everything has a checkered border and such.

this cant be the current generation codex???

>> No.14629132

Is it also poorly edited, seemingly rushed, and filled with stat and rule discrepancies? If so, that's probably the 4th, and most recent, Edition Codex.

...

this...

is just garbage compared to other codexes... it looks like it was made in MSpaint... there's not even a quick reference table at the end of the codex?

My 3rd edition space wolves SUPPLEMENT codex is 10x better than this.

This will be my 4th 40k army, one of which are speese mareens (from 3rd edition) and I had no idea the ork codex was this bad... it's like its made by a freaking ork.

>>14629139
There's a quick-reference at the end of MINE, but be warned; they didn't edit the thing, so there are multiple discrepancies between the quick-reference stats and the stats given in the unit listings. Pretty sure GW put out an FAQ a while back, but I honestly just use whichever listing in the Codex sucks less.

And get used to it, brork, because we're probably not gonna get another one for three or four more years. Welcome to 40k; in the grim derpness of the far future, there are only marine variants.

This thread is making me sad.

WHICH IS UNORKY AS FUCK.

What does an Ork do when he finds some piece of shit that he wants to use? HE FIXES IT UP GOOD AN' PROPAH!

Dare we, /tg/? Dare we play the Dok and fix our shitty-ass Codex? Dare we make a fair and balanced Ork Codex that we can play with close friends who are okay with such things, until such time as GW hires writers who don't hate Orks?

>> No.14629380

Dunno. I love the orks. Simply love them.

Thing is, I don't feel that they play too well.

Green tide? Have fun barely fitting everything in the deployment zone and getting raped by blasts, large blasts, and templates. Anything that actually survives to reach the other side of the board is cut to bitz due to low initiative and lower numbers.

Mek orkz? Better hope you don't go second, because you won't have a single functional trukk left on the board by the time you get to go.

Orkz with big gunz?
Anything you can do, Guard can do better. Our best weapon is what? The boomgun? The Killkannon? And we can take three at most? Yeah, no.

Zagstruk?
Oh god, I want to use him so bad. I want to base a list around him and deep striking stormboyz. Deep strike scatter rules mean that he's a points sink that probably loses you the squad, and deep striking stormboyz are beyond useless.

Snikrot?
Good at what he does, can be a nasty surprise. Sadly, won't do jack shit to anything in a vehicle, and everyone and their dog has those.

Kan wall?
Half decent for their cost. Sadly, slow as fuck.

Lootas?
Excellent unit. So much firepower. Sadly, can't do jack shit against heavy vehicles- hell, nothing we have can, and so very squishy.

What's a warboss to do? All our boyz seem to muck about.

I acknowledge that there is no unit as effective for its points as an Ork Boy. Maybe it's just that I'm not using them right.

Tankbustas. Give them bs3 and/or tank hunters. Maybe a little more oomph to better cope with AV 14 by means of special weapons. Take away their stupid rule. If a tank is IN RANGE, then yeah, they should have to charge that tank's shit. If the tank is like ten miles away, then they should be free to fuck shit up.

Probably should be a lot more HQs that let things count as troops choices like Wazdakka. Orks tend to do one thing, and do it really well. Or just give Orks a more flexible FOC.

Let Zagstruk's Vulcha Skwad reroll deep strike scatter dice.

I'd love to see more orky tanks/artillery. Battlewagons and looted wagons are great and all, but neither can bring enough dakka.

>> No.14630096

>>14629457
Orks are pretty much begging for a Blast2 or Blast3 weapon on a tank.

I'd really like to see the price of Nobz go down a touch. Particularly, Flash Gitz are simply too damned expensive even at base cost, throw in the costs for their upgrades to make them decent and it's just a massive point sink for something Lootas can generally accomplish much better.

>> No.14630209

>>14630096
Agreed on the Flash Gitz. Even if they just made their gunz Assault 2 by default, I'd be good with fielding them.

What codex would you use?

Dark Eldar with Wytchboyz in Raidaz?

Grey Knights to represent Octavian Orks, of course. Nob Troops, Warboss Elites, MEGABOSS HQs. Psyker powers to represent the WAAAAGH!
