So, I the Orks.

I like having fun, and they're a pretty fun army. They have wacky shit, they have a shit ton of dice rolling, and their entire playstyle of "fuck how many guys we lose CHAAAAARGE" is fun.

Also, as one who enjoys cannabis, gotta love those guys in green 420 blazitfaget etc etc

However, I hate their aesthetic. It's way too ramshackle for my tastes.

What do I do, /tg/?

Also, Ork thread, ya gitz.

In home matches it is, as long as your opponent doesn't mind. In tournaments idk, maybe if your fluff is alright.

>> No.26939422

If people react with automated expressions of dull-minded loathing, the problem lies with them, not their targets. It doesn't matter who or what they're targeting, because autobashing isn't a reasonable response to flaws in things.

>Trukk is shit, is my biggest problem.
I feel obliged to be the pretentious hipster who comes along talking about "in my days we didn't have a decent kit and had to build our trukks from the ground up using plasticard".

But seriously - most of the fun of ork vehicles comes from converting them, there used to be whole WD articles discussing converted trukks.

If you hated a Rhino I coulda kinda understand, but people complaining about ork vehicle kits make me want to 'eadbutt them - make your bloody own.

Plan is to have the lootas with the big meks in the battlewagons, move the wagons up 6" a turn bombarding with the Killcannon and keeping the boyz in range of the KFF while the Dakkajets are ded killy inna sky

Thoughts? Comments? I don't know if it'll work or not but I think it'll be fun to play and besides.

I know the feeling, I spend tonnes of time removing bolted on teeth and horns from weapons, armor and vehicle, and trading my way to 100% helmeted boys.
Generally the best clans for the serious Orks are Blood Axes and Goffs

I went with the foamer as their mercenary tendencies lets them loot Marine and IG Vehicles.
Also the Battlewaggon can look *very* rugged and well built while still being orky.

Vehicles still have bolted on plates and weapons, but there don't block exits, treads and seem almost cut to fit.

I've been wanting to build a counts-as Tyranid army using Orks for ages. Chaos/mutant/feral orks, that is. Orks would be genestealers. Nobs would be warriors. Tervigons would be squiggoths carrying a shitton of crazed grots; including a looney little shaman on top.

While I agree and usually run my wagons with rollas I don't think I'll have the chance to use them to full effect using the killkannons. the ram is going to be there to soak up weapon destroyed rolls, I guess I could take them off for more big shootas.

Nah, I mean ramming. I mean, sure they might not be able to ram other zooming flyers, but the idea of an Ork jet smashing through a wraithknight just seems appropriate. Or tank shocking a squad of guardsmen.
