There is already a general topic on eighth edition, which includes links to all the new information as it comes out.  It can be found here.

Well, thaaaatsss Niiiiiiicccee!!!! 8)

All that stuff about races to be krumped is good to know, Mork and Gork will be happy. ;D

Now; all we have to do is see how it effects the orks, all the other races are just fun fodder...

I know they put the temporary or permanent stats out for the morkanaut and talk about impressive.   It was very refreshing to see as they lacked serious useability for their points prior.   Now they are true tanks in their own right.

I am looking forward to the new fight phase: New Warhammer 40,000 – Fight Phase – Warhammer Community

Makes me drool to think about jumping out of trucks and krumping enemies.... ;D

Of course, OD has the copta brigade so his boys will jump out of coptas and krump. Hmmmm, we will have to look at that even more as coptas "might" be faster than trucks (but can they have red paint?) So much to look into... :o

I'm really starting to think this edition will be kind to orks. Kan walls might be really brutal.

Since you like the bikes, you are already half way to speed freak...  ;D

May I suggest trucks, lots of trucks for your boys to ride in. (painted red of course)

Sure keep your dreads but only use them in larger games. :o

I will keep that in mind, thanks. Now to come up with the cash to buy bikers and trucks. I'm actually thinking about digging out some old model trucks and orkifing them. Hmm!

I think we're gonna need to set up an Orky Build Up event soon.  8th is re-energizing my Orky love to the point that I'm going to be going back to my roots and probably leaving some if not most of my footsloggers in the dust.

What am I talking about?  If you haven't seen the Outrider detachment I highly suggest it.  Because in reading that I know I'm bringing back my Buggy Hell from 3rd Edition.  I don't know how many detachments you can have in an army, but I'm already planning on at MINIMUM 2 of these detachments filled to the brim with my favorite cheap as chips Buggies.  I'm coming back to the Kult of Speed with a hard NEED to build brand new models for a new(ish) army, thinking 12 new buggies (prolly 7 Rokkit, 5 Big Shoota).  Of course if I can take more I will!

If the Buggies get to keep the one thing I liked about the 7th Edition Codex (Outflank), then Buggie Hell will be even better then ever!  Even if they don't get to keep that I can't wait to bring back gobs of buggy death zipping up and down the table.  Not sure about what I'll do for HQ, I'm guessing the Warboss Bike Bomb or depending on the rules some SAG Meks.

And who knows, if they bring back Ork Outriders (slightly cheaper Ork Bikers without ranged weapons), then I'll truly be in KoS Heaven! Already know how I want to konvert them if they ever come back (Ork rider atop a Nid Hormagaunt whose been heavily customized into a living Harley Davidson).

Hurry up June, I want those rules so I can figure out exactly what I want and build it!

Peace
~OD

Post Script:
Of course, OD has the copta brigade so his boys will jump out of coptas and krump. Hmmmm, we will have to look at that even more as coptas "might" be faster than trucks (but can they have red paint?) So much to look into... :o
I never did finish those Warkopta transports I was planning because I could never get conclusive on if they counted as Flyers like the Skies of Death Forgeworld FAQ implied or if they remained Skimmers.  Even if they don't get the Flyer treatment, I'll be building those up as an alternative to Trukks, thanks for the reminder!

Truly beautiful work. That's the kind of stuff that makes a true mekanik cry tears of joy.

Everything so far has gotten me pretty excited about 8th edition... I'm hoping we see some good things for orks and the game in general. I was a really dedicated player who really, really loved my orks and the game in general... but 7th just ruined 40k for me to the point where I quit playing... I'm hoping for some good things...

Make sure to check out my thread about speed freaks.

The New Speed Freak List and Tactiks...

It is a work in progress, as much still needs to be worked out to produce a viable speed freak list. Sure could use some suggestions.... (did I say that out loud?) (No, I typed it.... ::) )

Already did Skeet... I'm personally dying to get to my store and get Xenos II... Since you posted the core rules, I'm reading them and wondering how orks fit in... :) Regardless, I'm going to dust off the greenskins and krump some people...

My local store is having a tourney this Saturday. If I had the codex I could make a list and participate. Unfortunately I can't make it to the store till this weekend and the army builder I found online only does level, not points, which the tourney is using...

I might try to head up their Saturday and watch for a while to get a feel for the other armies in 8th. My local store has some great players and they really do a wonderful job painting their miniatures... It's fun to see... :)

Adam

Edit: Ya, I figured out how to switch to points on the army builder... So I'm gonna try to make it to the store this sat for the Tourney... I'll pick up Xenos II there, but it saves me the trip in advance to get a list ready!

Well, I couldn't wait for OD to start a new modeling contest so I made an ork big mek on a looted bike.

Ork Looted Bike

If OD or AOD007 don't show soon, I might just have to run a contest come Orktober. If so get your bits lined up cuz we will start without them.

I thought I heard my name in the distance.  I have been watching some bat reps for 8th and playing a little bit of the dark imperium and I will say I like 8th.   Yes I am hoping we can get organized to do some sort of event for Orktober again.   I am at a rental house until my house is built so i don't have access to my ork projects but I will say I will be happy to help out.  Once my house is built I will have a dedicated gaming room

Alllllllritghty then, Orktober is just around the corner, so that means a contest. I was thinking of running a looted contest.

Sure, GW has done away with the looted wagon, but, we orks can still loot stuff for our own use. Like my latest big mek on bike Ork Looted Bike

Let me know what you think and I will get started on the knowwhats and whatnots, and try to con some mods into being judges  ;)
