Obviously we need to find all the Ork books already out and read them.

I dunno, I feel that they think they're super tough, and so they have mini force fields, as opposed to actually being tough. I mean, they're alright pretty tough (T4) but it's the power of belief and all that.

Now see, I disagree, When Orks use forcefields, they actually use forcefields.

Bigmeks can also take a Junka as a dedicated transport, and it comes with turboboost, defforlla, and can add on lots of shit like KFF, turret mounted Shokk gun and so on. Rolling "bad" with the SAG and get the tank ported rolla-first into the enemy is hilarious.

It goes:
JUN: Eldar
JUL: 40k Apocalypse update
AUG: Lizardmen
SEP: Bloodbowl
OCT: Space Marines
NOV: Fantasy army release (likely DE)
DEC: Hobbit
2014: Fuck knows but probably Dark Eldar, Nids and Orks. In various orders. Plus the yearly Spess Murheens dex. With Skaven, Brets and Wood Elves hopefully for WHFB.

For those interested in Lizardmen update here are the rumours I got so far:


- Swarms now useful
- Slanns more expensive





- Carnosaur cavalry as rare choice

Special Characters

New Units

Model Releases

- Nakai the Wanderer mini
- New spawn a la chameleon
- Dual Kit with big monster/machine of the old ones
- New saurus on cold ones

- No sacred spawns

Carnosaur Cav is awesome. Swarms being useful = Amazing. Not that 5 Poisoned Attacks per base on Unbreakable units is bad.

Buy the Battleforce.

Some LGS sell GW stuff at a discount (I get mine at 15%) the BF is $110 15% off is 93.60, plus the taxes here makes it 101.87.

The twenty boyz are 26.81 after discount and taxes.
x2 is 53.62
Trukk is 34.45 after taxes and discount.
Bikers are 41.88 after taxes and discount

Meaning separate they cost: 128.85
You save $27.98 going to a LGS with a discount and buying the Battleforce.

Without it's: 148.74 with a tax of 9% (Seperate buying) Battle force is 119.90. You still save $28.84

You always need more boys and trukkz are nice and bikers are awesome.

Yeah it's only on the Charge does Zaggy Get the Power Klaw at i3.

Before Furious Charge it was I4 and Zaggy would RAAAAAAAAAAAAAPE the fuck out of beakiez.

The only downside is he has to deepstrike in and deepstriking 11+ boyz is annoying as all get out. If you do get a charge off on that deepstrike though you can lose d3 boyz, but when it works its awesome as all hell.

By the way, Zagstruk can still do this in 6th edition, minus the I4 PK

>> No.25345403

I've only had Zagstruk roll a 1 on the deepstrike table once. The rest of the time he has murdered anything that came near him.

Every other time I've used Stormboyz has been the funniest, most orky situations of them Curbstomping four squads before being shot down. Last game I even had three left alive

Or Upgrade to a Pain dok, so the boyz can get that FNP + cybork and not have to take Grotsnik.

That'd really all we would need. Yeah it'd make a squad of Boyz RIDICULOUS in price, but my god imagine 90 boyz, all with FNP and Cybork and ard boyz.

No, I think it's problematic because it gets SMS, all the other overcharge options, MC stats, etc. A S8 AP2 large blast is hardly the most broken or defining feature of the Riptide.

>> No.25348556


Minimum strength, extremely weak MSU is actually a viable strategy.

If you have 6 troops, that means you can hit 6 objectives at once. That's a huge amount. If you make each unit the minimum size amount of your cheapest troop, that means you can sometimes can 6 scoring units for as low as 200-300 points. That leaves you a SHIT TON of points to spend elsewhere, often allowing you to max out on extremely dangerous, deathstar-esque threats that your opponent MUST deal with. Yeah, a deathstar or mini deathstar can be a problem, but usually they can be ignored in favor of picking off vulnerable troops and support. But if your army is 100% "throw this unit at your opponent and he must deal with it" type except for the 5% that is the weak troops, you can hold those in reserve, hide them in cover, etc and rush them out to cap last turn while your army pummels the opponent because they spent way more points on troops and support than you did.

The Nova reactor parts are hardly an issue UNLESS they're paired up with a strong offensive component. I mean, who the fuck cares if it can get a 3+ invul if it's not threatening your army? MC stats? If your opponent is hellbent on running their Riptide into melee with your troops, oblige him.

I'd say go for it. Slugga boyz are still cheap from Assault on Black Reach, and they can easily be converted into shoota boyz.

Warbosses are always handy, especially on bikes. Lootas are good and can be converted from regular boyz, just order a shit ton of bitz off line for weapons nobody wants (IG Mortars, heavy bolters, and missile launchers are perfect because they're goddamn huge)

Just start getting boyz for now, enlarge the sluggas so they look like shootas, and you can run them as sluggas or shootas. Paint em up and if we get a new codex soon you'll have the basic stuff you need already finished.

Also, if they've got FNP6+, give them an option to make them Skarboyz for FNP5+.

in the death from the skies book, there was some extra rules for that books main "missions," that had the ork plane do something like that.

And then the plane explodes.

If they did do a bunch with ork flyers, I'd like to see the tank shock part, and I would love to see an Ork Flying Fortress like the boeing B-17. I'd also love it if they brought Grot-bomms into the normal codex, and instead of them being on buggies, have them either launch from flyers, or you can take a squadron of them as their own psuedo-flyers.

Nah, that is probably one that can be nobz only. It'd be a bit extreme on boyz.

Forgeworld units have higher variance though. Most of it is fine, but the problems are even bigger. IA8 Orks are fine though.

On the off-chance you're not a master ruseman, I'd like to point out that (1) it's space fantasy, (2) that alien techno-barbarians fit in sci-fi anyhow and (3) there are some amazing ork sculpts out there, the vast majority of ugly ork sculpts being the ones that predate the Tau entirely. If anything (4) the Orks are defining of 40k, and were they ever not to fit, it would be an entirely new product - (5) something that can not be said about the Tau (although I think that their inclusion enriches 40k as a representation of more traditional sci-fi). So in closing (Lotz) Orks are propa 40k. Dealwithit.gif

Fuck ward as well. Although he is better then Kelly or Crud at balance, his rules are gimmicky and inelegant. Kelly gave as Aspekt Boyz, so he's off the list.

I'm not sure dividing the books about Orkz up along clan lines would be the best idea. I mean orkz from different clans will come together under a sufficiently big touch and intimidating Warboss. Also there are many smaller clans in the universe and just how organized orkz in an area are, by clan or any other measure, is highly variable.

THAT BEING SAID. if the books (despite there names) focused less on clans and more on different aspects of orkiness and the various forms it takes, along with various alternate ork army builds and examples of kustom army rules that serve both as something you could potentially adopt at your local gameshop, and as inspiration for a group of players coming up with there own custom rules....

Man, I'm just fine with my Ork codex. Sure, the basic Guard tank equivalent, the Stompa cost ~7.5 points more while having less range and weapons, but it gives them access to Supa Stompas which are really good. 3x 2 Blast Point 2 Macro Weapon guns? Give yourself a 'Uge formation and you can get three of the buggers, that's as much indirect/blast point output as TWO guard bassie companies, AND it's macro weapons! And 4 Damage Capacity topped off by d3 Power Fields (which should really be a solid 3 since they don't come back up like Imperial shields but whatever) means that they're generally tougher than a Warhound Titan with better weapons. Not to mention you get at least 3 Stompas with each one you buy, so that's ANOTHER 6 Big Guns, which is nice, though nowhere near as impressive as the Supagunz, the aforementioned 2 BP macro weapons.

Then there's the cheapo basic formations. For 325 points I can get me 2 stands of nobs who can give freaking Space Marines a run for their money statwise, 6 of Boys and 2 Grots, AND a Battlefortress which is more guns and can transport all of them at a smooth 30 cm per move. Top it off with Stormboy hordes getting scout, AND teaming them up with infiltrating Kommandos, means that you can get your guys scout deployed within ~45 cm of the enemy, Standard action to get within 15 cm, and then use the Kommando's Infiltrate rule to engage the enemy in assault from 30 away, while the Stormboy's greater speed means that they're already there.
