Another thing, how does one use stormboyz to good effect? I like them, but as a new ork player they seem to no really get the effect I want.

currently, one doesn't.

Though making a throw-away 5-man unit with a PK Nob can be decent if your opponent doesn't feel like wasting fire on a 100pt unit.

Me and my friends were all talking fluff, I'm the ork player, one buddy went space marines and the other tau they were laughing about orks being the punching bags of all the races ect.

But then it occurred to me.... orks have already won. The entire universe is at war and orks enjoy nothing more than getting into a good scrap, hell for an ork is never getting into that juicy brutal slugfest they call combat, so among all the worlds and all the stars as billions die every minuet the orks....are having the best goddamn time of their lives.

Not only that, but it's probably that the orks don't even realise the other races don't enjoy war. When they land on a world and the population flees screaming in terror, from the ork perspective everyone is in a frenzy because "Yay! The Orks have come to play!".

Armored company. The grots in stealth armour were counts-as sisters of battle, with the crab-tank being an immolator. The bomb-squig was a cyclops, and he had a single armored fist squad.

The guy has a thread up on The-Waaagh that I remember following. Was kinda surprised when I bumped into the guy at Astronomicon.

to me its better just to run killa cans, or nob squad, u r right that stormboys seem a bit underrated, but u have to admit rolling dice to see if an ork boy crashes is pretty amusing

Ok I'll try and clear up things about orks, answering questions I saw randomly.

Wierdboyz - Not worth it, can't fight in combat, and are too random to be dependable, you're way better off with a Bigmek with kustom forcefield with your boys giving 5+ save. Or taking a Warboss and putting him on a bike with a squad of PK Nobz on Bikes, these things will kill anything they touch, so hug cover and make their charge count.

Boyz before toys, if you're going speed freaks or putting them in trukks, make sure you have at least 4 trucks of boyz before adding anything else, aim for 6. Transports took a big hit this edition with HP now, and trukks are far easier to glance to death now.

If you're footsloggin, take big mobs of boyz, I'm personally doing bad moonz and plan to have 3 mobs of twenty boyz before I even add the rest.


Stormboyz, as mentioned before obviously bad since they have a 1/6 chance of randomly exploding every time, and the dice are fickle.

Lootas, overpriced and to make them at all capable of shooting something you have to pay to upgrade them, Lootas are better for this, take two mobs of 15. This edition Infantry is shaping up pretty good vs transport heavy armies.

Burnas, Great in trukks since open topped means they can shoot all of their templates out while in them. One trick pony, your opponent wil say 'never again', but you can either buy another trukk of them for target saturation or pose multiple threats at him with the lootas, choppas and burnas.

The trick with Orks is outnumbering, and always make your boyz shoota boyz. They have the same number of attacks as sluggas, but their weapons are assault 2. When they charge a mob of 30 shoota boyz would roll 60 dice to hit. Sure they're bs 2 so it's 5+ to hit, but you're rolling buckets here. Also makes them a very dangerous unit to charge, since they roll 60 dice on the overwatch.

>> No.22740545

>>22740517

Sorry meant flash gitz are overpriced*, Lootas are great, and bigmek gives 5+ invulnerable save to boyz and vehicles it's in.

>> No.22740567

>>22740545
Bigmek gives a 5+ cover save, not invulnerable. There's a big difference.

>> No.22740633

>>22740517
I agree with most of your comments... But some things to point out:
>Burnas, Great in trukks since open topped means they can shoot all of their templates out while in them. One trick pony, your opponent wil say 'never again', but you can either buy another trukk of them for target saturation or pose multiple threats at him with the lootas, choppas and burnas.
One problem with this is that Trukks are stupid-fragile, and cannot be purchased for Burnas (requiring you to take an understrength mob elsewhere to give it to them. You're better off buying a Battlewagon as a Heavy slot, and loading the burnas into it. B-Wagon is also more survivable, and the meks can keep it running longer (in theory).

>The trick with Orks is outnumbering, and always make your boyz shoota boyz. They have the same number of attacks as sluggas, but their weapons are assault 2.
Correction on this. Shootas have 1 less attack per model, due to not having 2 CCWs (Shootas have 2 base, while Choppa/Sluggas have 3). The -1 attack penalty however is completely blown out of the water by the assault-2 deathcannon, with it's 18" range.

To me when i play Orks its all about fun, never about winning, everytime i play, i win when my dead pile is bigger than theirs im happy.

>> No.22740943

>>22738881
I generally play 2000 point games. In it i have 180 Boyz who foot slog across the table to swamp the enemy. When there is a unit i want to keep still so that i can get my boyz in close, i deep strike my 19 stormboyz with boss Zagstruck and assault that unit. WHile they are locked in combat I have time to get my boys close

>> No.22741025

>>22740517
but i do agree with what his man says
>Orks is outnumbering
The sheer number of models, dice, etc. will make any opponent want to flip a table at times.
