Title: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: angel of death 007 on February 4, 2011, 09:56:12 AM
WWWAAAAAAAAAGGGGHHH!!!!!!!!
Welcome to the WotW: The Green Menace.  This is the Ork Chain of Command (Ya understand what the chain of command is?  Its the chain I go get and beat ya with till ya understand whoze in ruttin command ere!).  For those of you who don't know, just about every forum on 40konline has a C.o.C. (or PoC if your a Panzee Eldar Git), and you have stumbled upon the Ork side of the trakks.
And We'ze Orks be the best and da Greenest of dem all.

There's a lot of events planned and in the works for The Green Menace, and it is here you'll see future events announced and the highlights of the past events.

Once you're in WotW: The Green Menace, post here regarding anything to do with the WotW!  WotW members can earn glory and teef whenever you work on projects, show participation, and WIN BATTLES for the Green Menace!  All the Details on how to do this are going to be shown here in simple and plain English.  So if you're ready to prove just how BAD and ARD an Ork you are, join da ranks of the Green Menace.

Da Bank
The WotW (unlike the udda non-green CoCs) has itself a banking system to track members Orky achievements, and make bets between other members.
You can check out the WotW bank by scrolling down

WotW: The Green Menace KUSTOM TITLES
This is the basic outline of the WotW's ranking system and generic guidelines for promotion.  Note that these are not set in stone, but rather they are just basic guidelines for moving up in the WotW.  If you feel the need to progress fasta than your post count, all you need do is participate in events, write/edit Ork tacticas in the Ork Project forum, write Batreps and fluff, and in general prove yourself to be worthy of the title which can (and undoubtedly will) be awarded sooner.

*Please Note that ultimately you will know you have received a new rank when it either shows up in your Profile or when it shows up in the Member list (see below).  Now note that you should be patient as it may take a number of days after you've received a new rank before its reflected in your profile, so BE PATIENT You'ze guyz!  Additionally since I and the Warbosses/Big Mekz that are working with me are not gods and cannot see everything on 40konline (let alone the universe) if you meet the prerequisites and it seems like nothing has happened let me know and request your promotion and if you are worthy (and I'm not too busy with all the rest of running this) you'll probably just get it.

===Prospect===
-All new members will go through a 90 day probationary period.   During this time the prospect is expected to obey the rules, be an active poster, and show the WotW just what they are made of in order or earn their t-shirt.

===YOOF===
     A Yoof is a young Ork who has only recently been born or only recently entered into the Ork Kulture.  It is not a negative or insulting term such as Grot, as all Orks start their careers as Yoofs, even the greatest in Warboss in Ork Fluff, Ghazghkull Mac Urik Thraka started out as a Yoof.
     • PREREQ's: Yoofs need at least 1 post on 40konline (duh), and join up with the WotW.

===ORK BOY===
     Boyz are the mainstay of an Ork army, who have been properly kultured and indoctrinated in all things Orky.  They sit around and from time to time indulge themselves in the finest of Squigpies and fungus brew, the best relaxation for the Workin Ork.
     • PREREQ's: 100+ posts and an entry in Faces of the Waaagh Sticky

===The ORK ELITE===
     This is where the Orks really shine, their individuality, and this is in both established fluff, and on our rather ecclectic regular posters for whom a regular title just wouldn't do.  The Ork Elite is therefore not a title in its own right, but a catchall term for specialty titles that may be earned such as BURNA BOY, TANKBUSTA BOY, DAKKABOY, SPANNA, DOC'S ASSISTANT just to name a few.
     • PREREQ's: writing an applicable tactica, article, konversion how to, fluff piece, or otherwise prove yourself through participation in WotW events. Appointment through a vote by the Boss Council.

===ORK NOB===
     Nobz are da ardest Skarboyz among the ranks.  They've survived countless campaigns and earned themselves a place of honor amongst the tribe.  In order to be a Nob you'd naturally have had to have done a lot for the boards, and I don't mean stuff that just anybody can do like comment on an army list, oh no (although you'd need to do that as well.)
     • PREREQ's: 500 posts, a Batrep, and participation within the greater WotW activities such as writing articles and tactica for the Ork Project, konversion how to's, fluff pieces, and all other sorts of goodies.  Since some of these are also the requirement for Elite Orks you can also be elite Nobz, and I imagine most who reach Nob status will be Elite Nobs.  Some examples of Elite Nobz: BIKERNOB, TANKBUSTA NOB, MEKBOY, PAINBOY.  Nobs demonstate an overall knowledge and are starting to show their leadership attributes.  Appointment through a vote by the Boss Council. 

WARBOSS, BIG MEK
     The title of Warboss (or Big Mek which we'll think of as synonymous as to level) isn't something given at all, its earned through lots of work sweat and Orky Pride.  To earn this rank you have to do a lot of legwork which far exceeds the average user.
     • PREREQ's: Lots of posts, participating in WotW events and even helping run them in addition to working on the Ork Project board through writing or editing articles that will be put up in the Ork Article section.  Where the other titles of the WotW are fairly easy to get, this one is not and will have responcibilites to that effect as when The Green Menace grows to a certain extent it may break into a second WotW and therefore Bosses must be ready to take command of a WotW if the need be.  A Boss / Mek should be highly known and respected throughout the WotW.  They should be able to demonstate leadership and be willing to put a lot of behind the scene work in.

As of 24 January 2017

Teeth are psudo points that are earned by doing stuff. The teeth can be accumulated and then spent for equipment, upgrades, and or bets.

The WoTW is about and for orks, thus, only activities that are about your ork army, or orks in general, are all you can earn teef for. Since none of the other races in 40k use teef as currency, it would be pointless to pay space marines or eldar with teef, as they wouldn't be able to spend it anyway. Remember; teef are for orks.

This includes batreps, tacticas, painting guides, modeling, articles, fiction, or any other activities that you can participate in on these forums.

Earning of teeth

1 for signing up for the The Green Menace WoTW
5 for posting a batrep*
2 for posting fiction/fluff (in the fiction forum)
3 for posting a tactica**
5 for posting a "How To" guide on modeling, painting, dealing with butimmus maximus opponents, etc.etc.etc**
10 for getting one of your tactica's, how to guides, etc. Published on the front page of 40KO

*Make sure to post the url of your teef earning accomplishment in this thread so teef can be credited to your account! When you post your accomplishment, please provide the link so we can all go look at it.
       Also, one paragraph short synopsis type reports are not eligible to earn teef. It must be a blow by blow report posted in the batrep forum. Pictures and/or graphics are appreciated, and if it is really good, you might get some favoritism teef.

On Tacticas:
**- No member gets Teef till their approved draft is put into the Project Board, you earn an extra 5 teef if/when your tactica/how to guide is published as an article.

Teef for WotW Competitions (as run by one of the Bosses)
• 1st place 15 Teef + 1 Toof per vote above 2nd
• 2nd place 10 Teef
• 3rd place 5 Teef

For the Scrapyard, teef are awarded by Od From TV at the end of the month depending on your success.

Teef for Campaigns
1 toof for each point you earn for ork glory
5 teef for each campaign batrep and sometimes extra teef are awarded if you complete a special mission.
5 teef for campaign fiction
5 teef for modeling just for the campaign. A counter, a special hero/unit/vehicle, an objective marker, scenery,and so on.

Favoritism Teef
A warboss gives favor teeth when that warboss sees something that is deserving of teef, but it does not fit in any category above, or just because he is in a good mood.

Spending Teef
You are a naked ork, and you will need to buy yourself some kit.
Since a boy costs six points, and comes with three pieces of kit (light armor, slugga and choppa). This is for an already "grown" ork. So since becoming a ork is free then that means those pieces of kit are about two points a piece.

Consider the "life cycle" of an ork, that orks are grown. Then crawl out from under a rock, or something similar and has no kit, and then has to "find" it or earn it. When you join the WoTW you become an ork, something along the lines of you ripened enough to fall off the branch, now you need to find or earn some kit.

So the going value of an item is two teef per point, this means that a slugga will cost you four teef, and so forth.

Now you don't have to buy kit in any order, like in the codex, you can go straight for a big shoota if you want. Not to mention you can buy any kit you want as long as you have teef. So if you don't want a slugga and choppa you can save your teef for a rockit buggy. Once you have the buggy you have no need for a slugga and choppa as you now have a sweet ride.

You can buy equipment and titles. Once you have enough teef you can buy a piece of equipment for your rank. IE as a boy you could buy a big shoota or a rockit launcher. Once you are a nob you can buy big choppas kombi weapons etc. Or you can save up to buy a truck, bike, battle wagon and so forth.

For titles, again in your ranking you can buy a custom title, for example as a boy you could buy titles like deff copta pilot, truckk driver, etc. and once you are elite you could use your teef to buy the title burna boy, etc. The buying of a title will have to be coordinated through me and the Angel of Death 007. (as well as overworked mods)

The price of gear is X2 teeth, or 2 times the points of the gear in the codex. IE a Big Shoota is 5 points so will cost 10 teeth. This will also allow you to eventually save enough teeth for your own stompa, (est price 2,000 teeth) although it may take a few years...

Your equipment that you have purchased will be listed next to your name in the first post of this thread.

Also; since titles are supposed to be hard to get/earn/buy;  the cost is 25 teeth plus X5 (5 times) the cost of the gear. Say you want to be a Deff Copta Pilot, that will be 25 teeth plus the cost of the deff copta (codex X5), and you will have to be in a position to have that wargear, for example a boy could not be a flash git, but a nob can, etc.

Titles are the domain of the mods, so submitting for an addition/change of your rank title should not be done lightly nor frequently as you may not get the results you desire. Before you submit for your "Deff Copta Pilot" title make sure you are willing to live with it for a LONG time. No Refunds!


Betting

If two members wish to wager teef then they will have to make a public wager (not a PM wager) and will have to make sure that the orkountant and warlord are aware of the wager. Upon completion of the wager both parties will have to post that the wager was won/lost and who gets the teef and I can transfer the teef to the new account using the post url as a reference in case someone later thinks their teef were stolen.


Of course random missing teef will happen, it might be embezelment, it might be fees, or might be that the teeth were never credited to the account. A simple post url to prove the teeth were earned is ample proof of their existance.

Hello

I have been playing orks since just before the Armageddon world wide campaign, (a few years ago) and since the new codex came out I play them almost exclusivly. (I still play my eldar once in a while)

I am a speed freak, a full fledged member of the kult of speed. I thouroughly enjoy the the way the army plays, and a large majority of the armies at my LGS have adapted their armies to be anti speed freak, so when I feel that they are too fine tuned I bring my eldar and just hose their plans down the drain.

My favorite unit is my Drive By Boys. 12 shoota boys in a truck, one is the nob with a boss pole, riding in a truck with red paint, reinforced ram, and when there are points to spare, I add grot riggers. Their main job is to go for the trapped result (used to be called crossfire) and prevent fleeing enemies from surviving or rallying. Plus since the unit is cheep I sometimes use them to hold an objective in my deployment zone.
Of course they are not the hardest unit in my army, but they are fun, so I have 4 units of them.

Hello everyone and welcome. 

I am the newest appointed Boss in our WotW but I am a long time 40konline member.  I have been on the board since there was a discussion about forming the WotW and will be continuing to serve on the council.

I play many different armies but orks found a very interesting place in my hobby.  I like to convert and love making each of my models a bit different sometimes driving myself crazy trying to figure out a configuration that works best. 

You will probably see me in other parts of the 40konline community as well.  I am currently participating in the tale of 8 gamers and am usually in the different painting competitions as well. 

Tale of 8 Gamers  (link) (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=206349.0)

I am here to help new members in anyway I can and to share my love of the green skins.  As a Boss I will be in charge of welcoming new members and keeping our main page up to date. 

For those starting out or those veteran painters I did a painting article a few months ago to help myself and others get their boyz painted and on the table as everyone loves a painted army.  It is a step method I developed and has helped me paint faster.

Assembly Line Painting, Getting your boyz painted quickly (Article link) (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?action=articles;sa=view;article=963)

I can honestly say that we got a great group leading us and a lot of very dedicated members.  We have a lot planned and in the works for this coming year so it should be very exciting for everyone. 

So if you have an interest in the green skins like myself then join us and watch our community grow.

Hello everyone and welcome.

I've been on these boards quite a bit for the last few years.  I collect several 40k and fantasy armies, but have enjoyed the orks the most.  My interest in the hobby is primarily tactics and strategy, although I've mostly been painting and converting this year.  I like to put everything I'm up to on the web somewhere, so check out my sig links if you'd like to see my various hobby projects. 

Feel free to msg me if you want more input in a tactics or army list post.  I mostly play speed freak type lists, and even made a tactica for them here (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=130950.msg2232066#msg2232066).  As a Mek, I'm starting up a few pet projects on the this board soon.

As I have been noticing and commenting to several of you that your articles and tactica are very well wrote and are being noticed by our members.  Well myself and the other bosses/ meks got notified thru PM by a Project Editor who noticed your hard work and think it is worthy of being added to our ork project boards. 

For all of you that don't know the Ork Project Board is where you post articles about painting, tactica, or whatever else could be used by the group.  Once a post is put in this forum members can help you by suggesting ways to edit it or improve on it.  Then it goes thru a project editor.  After that any corrections are made and then it becomes a published article in the articles section.  Having gone thru this process once before I can offer advice plus have contact with a few others who have published several articles.  Keep in mind I do believe that there is a minimum amount of posts needed to enter the project board (I believe it is 100 posts in the ork forum)  but I will double check on that.

The link to the project forum can be found here:
http://www.40konline.com/index.php?board=63.0 (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?board=63.0)


I have said it before and I will say it again.  Your hardwork does not go unnoticed and when you get a message from a project editor complimenting your members that is something to be very proud of.

Quoted from PM:
"I congratulate all of you on all the work you have put in on the Ork board.  There is some excellent material being produced there, and you should all feel very pleased with yourselves  ."

Best wishes,
Irisado.


I just thought I would share this and extend the offer to post up on our project board.  Congrats to all of you in writing your excellent tactica articles. 

AOD 007

P.S.  I just went thru our board again and noticed we don't have a spot on our board here for tactica links yet.   I will start on that today as I definately think it can benefit those starting out or even those experienced in orks.  I will be posting / editing it today.  Anyone that doesn't see there tactica up there, just send me a pm with the link and I will add it.

Just a question about the project board. When you said "it goes through a project editor" do you mean that we ask a project editor to look through it and then (they) add it to the articles board? I just want to make sure I know how this works.

Thanks.

Just a question about the project board. When you said "it goes through a project editor" do you mean that we ask a project editor to look through it and then (they) add it to the articles board? I just want to make sure I know how this works.

Well the way it worked when I did it I posted my article up on the project board.  Several members and project staff got in touch with me and offered suggestions.   OD actually gave me a lot of great advice as well and helped me with some of the html stuff.   I think I edited it and posted it with changes about 3 times till I was satisfied with how it looks.  Basically after you get all the feed back from members on what to change, add, or improve and you make the changes how best you see fit then you send that into the article section for submission.  After a few days if everything looks good they post it in the articles section and it becomes published so to say.

The first step is that you post it in the project board so we can help you edit it.  Expect some praise, critisim, and good suggestions.  Think of the project board as a tool, critic, audience, and editor for your future article. 

Here was my project on the board.   You can see some of the comments and suggestions that were made. 
http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=206667.0 (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=206667.0)

after you get all the feedback you need and get the attention of a project editor you can submit it for article publication by following the steps found here:

Speaking of bragging about me... 

(And also, aren't Catch that Squig! and The Grot Appreciation League considered current WotW events as well?)

Catch the squig is and has been added to our links.  The grot appreciation league was in the process of testing the system and Croggy was going to do a trial run before submitting it to be a full on WotW event from my understanding, which is why he wanted such a small number of participants.  I believe future intentions based on the outcome of the test are to make it large scale.

This space belongs to

Bluu in da Phaes

Da Story of Bluu in da Phaes  

Bluu In Da Phaes (BIDP).... all started out way back in da day of 3rd ed... we had a few boys and their faces were blue instead of Green (actually I was testing some different washes back in the days of true Ink)... anyway... Me Fantasy Orks were mingling with me Space Orks... and the clan was formed... we went to war several times, and we never lost a game over many many years of gaming... (when we won, we won ~~ when we ran away, we was only going ta get more boys ~~ and then there were a few times that we all got wiped out, so no witnesses means dat da battle never really took place, cus ya can't prove it).. anyway, we never lost. Along come da 5th ed and seriously cool Codex and some wicked new figure too (Woot)... We older boys decide dat da AOBR box set is too good to pass up, so we gets a set... dump da SM's for mor Boys (trade), never even get outta da store, and get an chance to repeat... so for $150.00 we goes home wit 4 full sets of AOBR Orks (woot)... a few weeks later I gets da chance to trade some more SM\s for another set of AOBR Orks (seamed like no-one wanted them)…. Den I gather da Mek’s togetha and start figuring a way to build a unique and “Fun” army wit dem all. So, since they have been Screaming (till their "Bluu in da Phaes") since the 3rd Edition, I figured that I would keep that theme going but with a more modern feel and look to it...

Here is a linky to our Faces of the Waagh spot that Shows off what Bluu in da Phaes looks like (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=159353.msg2420074#msg2420074)

I am not super active in the Ork Boards; but I have been playing orks for years and I have had decent success with them, aside from that I find them a very unique and "Fun" army to build/paint/play. At least they are never boring, so if I can assist you in any way, just let me know (PM). BidP isnot part of any of the big clans, we are a clan of our own; and although we may not be as big as some clans are, we could take them in a fight anyway, cause we do fight dirty - we do fight to win - and we have fun doing it.

Here is a linky to our first batrep for the Feb-waagh-ary campaign 500pts, BidP vs Dark Eldar (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210741.0) Revenge match will follow shortly.

Post by: OD from TV on February 6, 2011, 04:07:53 PM
Oi!

OD from TV here, and I'ze gonna bash all yur 'Eads in!

Well, not really.  This is the new 3.5 version of the WotW, otherwise known as the Ork Chain of Command (or Path of Command for you Eldar out there).  The Ork style of CoC is in my opinion the best out there, and not only because we are one of the largest, but because our members are some of the most active out there.  Just in the past week we've had new a bucket load of new content drop, both planned and un-planned by the Bosspole Council, and trust me there is a lot more coming down the pipe.

Sadly due to real life issues I'm not going to be online as often as I have been, but I'm still around and kickin!
AoD is one of the hardest working greenskins on the board, as is Skeetergod, DropFall and Deathpepper so don't give them any guff all right!

Now we've been approached by one of the heads of the Article Project Editing community, because a lot of articles are getting written right now (and why NOT?!  It is the best way to show off your Orky Pride and can result in getting on the Front page of 40konline!)

Now the best way to write an article (in my humble opinion anyway) is to post the first draft right here on the Ork board, where it will get the most exposure prior to publishing it in the Article section.  You'll have a number of people read through it and give their opinions, which often do expand upon your initial writing.

Then when you think you've perfected it, upload it to the Ork Project board (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?board=63.0) located in the project section towards the bottom of the Forum index (if you can't see it yet, that means you don't have a high enough post count to access it).  Once uploaded there, a crack team of editors can point out any spelling or grammatical errors as well as help with the general organization and lay out of the article.

Once that's done click the articles tab on the top of the page and go to My Articles and click Add Article.  Once uploaded there it takes a week or two for final sorting and editing and BOOM your article is enshrined in the annals of 40konline's Article board, where it will stand as a shinning beacon of Orky knowledge, insight, and perfection for the future (and current) generations of Ork players to glean from.

Peace
~OD

A CoC is a Chain of Command, where the Eldar have a PoC or Path of Command.  We have the WotW or Way of the Waaagh. 

I saw your post in the faces of waaagh and looked thru the old WotW page and never seen you express interest and I was hoping that you would.

So let me be the first to welcome you to the WoTW.  We have a lot of great activities planned for this year so stay tuned and earn yourself some teeth in the process.

Problem is my "she who must be obeyed" loves my big squiggoth and wants to paint it.  But I am having a hard time parting with it.  So my best bet is to try and have her paint it with me saying we need a project together.

I actually played more 40k this week then I have in a long time, but... *blush* only 1 ork game, that catch that squig one from last monday.  Played another game (as blood angles) that night, 3 games as marines on Wed, 2 games as marines on Friday, a game as Tau on saturday, and 2 games as nidz today...  So a good week for me, just not a very orky one.

I prefer using lots of boyz with a few bigga wagons. I just recently finished a 1500 point all-infantry guard army with no vehicles whatsoever so i want to stay close to that but with a few cool vehicles because they look great and are easy to convert.

On a totally unrelated note, I would like to ask everyone what they would like to see for the next ork campaign? With a little feed back from you all we will make the summer campaign the best in the WoTW history.

What will compell you to want to play and post batreps?

This is important as the summer campaign is to be a cross-board campaign where we fight battles against another forum, like we did with the Knuckles on Necrodermus campaign. For those of you who weren't here we played against the necron board, each side posting batreps and fiction, pictures of models, and so on.

So, what would you like to see that will get you all to play, and post about it? Special missions? Painted armies? More teeth? Etc. Etc. Etc.

For those of you who weren't here we played against the necron board, each side posting batreps and fiction, pictures of models, and so on.

So, what would you like to see that will get you all to play, and post about it? Special missions? Painted armies? More teeth? Etc. Etc. Etc.

Well February was a short month to begin with so that really didn't help and I had a lot of personal stuff going on as well. 

Honestly the biggest problem for me is getting a game in a week...  it is absolutely impossible with my schedule.  A game every two weeks is a lot more doable.  So that will be the biggest suggestion I can make. 

Special missions are hit and miss.   like the other large online campaign a few years ago and the KoN campaign a big thing is the competition amongst other boards.  The fact that your game effects the outcome of your team does have an impact.  Which both other campaigns had that in them. 

Playing in a certain points level is also a huge boost as most people have a certain amount of models.  Having different people playing in different sections based on their points is a good thing.

Painted armies....  i dunno about that.  Playing orks (especially horde orks) is a lot of models to have everything painted and in most cases is not or should not be a requirment.  (considering one boyz squad can be 30 orks and for some armies that is more or as many infantry models as their whole army)  If anything I think this will limit the amount of players if it is the criteria.

So far we have consistant point level, so have people sign up under a "sector" which covers size limits. Let us say a 1k sector, a 2k sector, and a 3k sector. Sector 1 are games 1k or less, sector 2 are games 1k to 2k, and so on.

Then we have a two week period to get and report a game for your sector.

Good input so far, so my fellow orks; what else?

First off I'm not really sure how the campaigns work, like do I play you guys somehow or find willing people here to play me or what?

That aside I kinda like the painted army thing you could make it like the sector thing where you get points or whatever for different categories like fully painted, half painted and so on and so forth, people with say 10% army painted would have their army appearance "show" against the others in that category.

But not knowing for sure how it works, I have serched for examples, I can't be for sure what else to add. If we do plays games at local clubs then I say special scenarios is always fun we can always print them out to show our opponent to agree to. The guys I play with are always more than willing to do something new and different, a change of pace from the Dawn of War/Annihilation

First off I'm not really sure how the campaigns work, like do I play you guys somehow or find willing people here to play me or what?

You find people at your local who are willing to play battles against your orks, and be patient enough while you take pictures and notes for battle reports.

That aside I kinda like the painted army thing you could make it like the sector thing where you get points or whatever for different categories like fully painted, half painted and so on and so forth, people with say 10% army painted would have their army appearance "show" against the others in that category.

I like the idea of bonus points for painted armies, or like the KoN campaign; noteriety points. We will have to discuss that feature in further depth. Maybe add in some sort of toof award for mostly painted, painted, painted good, etc. etc. etc.

But not knowing for sure how it works, I have serched for examples, I can't be for sure what else to add. If we do plays games at local clubs then I say special scenarios is always fun we can always print them out to show our opponent to agree to. The guys I play with are always more than willing to do something new and different, a change of pace from the Dawn of War/Annihilation

I too like the different scenarios, and am a big fan of the Battle Missions book. I also have the last three rule books that also have different missions in them, so am able to find lots of alternatives to the standard 1 in 3 roll off with the current rule book.

So we now have added in the different missions aspect, so if any of you have a favorite mission that you would like everyone to play; go ahead and send it to me, and it might end up in the next campaign.

Congrats to all promotions and welcome to the Bluu side for the Newbs. yes I said Bluu, as my Dudes are Bluu in da Phaes, as not all Orks like to be Green.

Cheers, and on a side note after some 4 losses to Dark Eldar in the past month-ish I finally got my revenge with a complete massacre of the opponent yesterday. Mind you I only had my Boss and a couple Knobs left at the end; but not one of those pointy eared barstiches made it off the battlefield alive - we crated them all up and will hold the mass burial at a later date. Condolences would be sent to their families etc; but we intend on stomping their guts out next, so we will tell them face to face as we look into their cold dead eyeballs.

Arraghhhhhhhhhhhhh  Da Big Bluu Dude had a good day.

I'll sign up for this, I guess.

I'd put it off because I'm having the worst (time wise) academic year ever, which has been making me taking longer than I'd like to paint/play with/assemble/etc everything. But I think I'm pretty close to 750 points now, which should be enough to have a baby game or two (I was originally planning on not playing until I'd painted everything but.... that looks like it'll take me too long. I think I'll just go ahead to 1000 points, and then hold the list till it's all painted so I can at least get in a few small games. I do have my first squad of 20 "kind of" painted up now, at least. And my boss with some nobz too.).

I don't know exactly what type of army I want, mainly because I want them all. So I can see myself with a very large horde someday, that would give me a choice of how to make a list for each game. The general idea is to go infantry heavy though, and I think I'll starting with a kan wall type and go from there.

Death pepper did a great job with our unit of the month...  kommandos has been a hot topic so make sure to check this out...   March is Kommando Month (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=212191.0)  It has also been updated and included in our first page of the WotW.

Also we had some really nice shiny promotions...   so maybe some of your newly promoted people will be seeing/ messaging Skeetergod to get some equipment to go with your titles....

As for the monthly discussion stuff, even though you don't have/use a unit, it is still good to know about them as you may one day aquire them for your next wave. Thats the kool thing about orks, you don't have to start a new race when you want to change your play style, you just get some different ork models and presto; new army. Tired of moving a bazillion models of your green tide? Then get trucks and go speed freaks, etc.

Rayvn70 I have you in the list and all???  if it is painting related.. then post in the painting forum, if it is a conversion how to then post in the konversion forum.   You can post here and provided a link so that the ork community sees it.

Nice job on the tutorial, makes me want to go try one. But the Green Baron I have now might get jealous, so maybe I will just threaten him with a replacement if he does poorly, or an upgrade if he does really well. (LOL)

I am still working on making 3 death copters into buggies, I think I found some wheels (using "Hot Wheels", works out to about $1 a wheel) so I won't be starting on this new Green Baron project for a bit.

I left a comment on your thread, and awarded you 2 teef.

For one of my buggies I used a matchbox crusher truck wheels and they worked nice...   I am going to try to make some deff kopta buggies but I plan on using the wheels from the model car/truck kits I am using to build some of my trukks since I am using the ork trukk wheels on those kits.

Yes, the Hot Wheels I am talking about are the Monster Jam trucks, that are Hot Wheel scale monster trucks (like Bigfoot, etc.) and the tires look about the right size. This means I have to buy 3 of them to loot the wheels for my coptabuggies project.

I am just now finishing my kommando project, using barrels and big gun parts with ork arms and bits, so next up is the copta buggies project.

I must ask, as I did on the other thread, was the walk through concise enough or should I add more content?

The bank account is updated, some good news; the waagh is growing. I will have to ask the AOD if we are now bigger than the Eldar POCs, and if so that means we need to wage waagh against them.

Some good stuff out there this week, so lets keep up with the good stuff, with some more good stuff.

Rayvvn70; HMMM, it seems you have the wrong link listed, as for your other question, a little more detail on cutting, like where and how you determine what gets cut and what stays.

Skeetergod we are bigger than most of the individual eldar POC's with the exception of the Saim-Hann POC The Wild Host who I believe still has us beat. 

As far as waging war vs the eldar I am game as long as i don't have to take on those beslubbering jetbike councils.... My kan wall army despises them. 

Rayvn70 a good way to show were to make cut lines is just to take a photo of a death kopta or death kopta sprue and bring up the picture in paint...   Draw a Red line with tools showing where to make cut lines then save the picture.  This is a very easy way I have seen others use in the past.

WRONG, the Waagh only numbers some 45-ish dudes at present.
Some of the Eldar POC's are still bigger, Saim-Hann is actually 50+, and if you combine them all (6 POC's) there are some 200-ish Eldar POC members.

I do agree with the rest and that the waagh is diffenently headed in the right direction (and actually more active than any single Eldar POC) but we are not quite at the point to that we can poke fingers at any other groups, as we is still not big enough.

Get yer stomping boots on boys, recruit some of da grubs in yer neck of da woods, as der is still lotz of work fer us ta do.

Welcome to the fold Doopsie.

@ Moc
Yes, if you combine all the Eldar players it is at a 200+ level, however what was being looked at was a pure PoC/CoC size comparison, as several months ago we tied Iyanden for the third largest membership rate.  At that time (if my memory is correct), first and second was a close race between Siam Hann and Imperial Guard (although if you count the Imperial Guard's retired officer section it is by far and wide the largest CoC on the boards, however I believe they are in the 'retired' section because they are no longer active).

I think most (if not all) members know that this site started out as Eldar Online, and it evolved to encompass all the races.  In my opinion though it is still without a doubt the Eldar and Dark Eldar sections that have the most traffic and the most active community.  This is why the first 40kwide campaign (Gutstikk's Summer Campaign of 08) was primarily geared for Eldar players (building on the Eldar Campaign for the Cerriwandas) and had more Eldar players than any other faction.

At the moment there is no doubt in my mind that if we were to set up a challenge or campaign against any Eldar PoC, we would be heavily outnumbered because there would probably be members of other PoC's that would join in the fight.  But that doesn't mean we can't dream...

Peace

As you know I'm trying to get my how-tos made into articles I'm not completely clear of the process I've done as was suggested with the paint program and showed my cut lines and where I glued and such just need to know can copy the thread over, if so how, do I retype it should I get get people to look them over.

Also I wasn't too sure where to post these questions but as Skeet, Angel and now Storm have all gotten articles it seemed silly to make a new thread unsure where it would go than to ask here. I also have a good technic for doing ork skin that I'm working on posting and hopping to add to Angel's awesome painting guide as well as my way of doing yellow and red. I'm a speed painter so most of the colors I do is about 2-3 steps and on to the next color

Good idea, brilliant, we do need a standard operating procedure (SOP) that we can refer budding authors to, so that they can get published.

This is how I did it, it may not be the "SOP" but it works. With a new thread in this forum introduce your tactica/how to article and solicit critique/corrections. Then once you have it all corrected, and there are no more new comments for a week, copy and paste it into a new thread in the ork project board. Make sure to link to it from your original post. After making the corrections suggested in the ork project, you then go to the article board and post it there, it will not be viewable as it will be awaiting moderation/editing. Notify a project editor (our boss, OD from TV, is one) and wait. After a week you should have something to either fix the article, or it is accepted. Once it is accepted the project editor notifies a mod and your article goes live.

As you see it is not a fast process,  much quality control goes into the process. After all, we don't want to look like stupid orks to the general public.  :o

If any others of you wish to chime in and add your two teef about how to get published, then please do. I will (or maybe trick Angel of Death into doing it) compile it all and make a SOP to refer others to. The other possibility is that such a SOP already exists, (but I couldn't find it) and we can just straight up link to it.

Doopsie, Yessum, and Chaplain Swordwind welcome aboard.  I will have you added to our list and will get your titles to you soon.   Chaplain Swordwind it is good to see you back stateside I hope all has been well with you and it is really good to see you turn to the other green side. 

Rayvn70: 
Ork Project Board (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?board=63.0)  This is the place to post an article to be edited.  It will be reviewed by several project editors where they will make suggestions and also other ork members and 40konline members will comment and add suggestive criticism.  After the article is edited then you can submit it into the article section where it will be reviewed by a project editor.  It might also be a good thing to drop OD a pm as I know he is an active project editor and quite good at it too.   

As far as a painting article goes.. I did do a speed painting article.  You could do a speed painting article or an add on like a 2nd part.  I don't mind. 

Sorry I was out of town a few days so I am playing a bit of catch up.   :P

AoD:  Thanks, its good to be home.  Actually, I've moved to a new duty assignment.  If I hadn't, I'd be back overseas for tour number four!   :o

I got my feet wet with the greenskins while I was deployed, but I figured since I'm making a comeback on 40KO I could spend a little time re-investing myself all around, instead of spending all my time on Eldar.  ;)

Welcome back.  Ah yes I have seen the battlereports from over at the sandbox.  Makeshift scenery is always fun.  So found a rekindled love for the greenskins have you?  I have been spending a lot of time over the past year getting my ork army up to par.  I had a lot of unpainted/ unassembled grey plastic at teh end of last year that was calling out to me.  Glad I turned green though as orks really sparks my interest in the hobby from all fronts.

Thats OK, I still get to brag about winning a modeling competition.  ::)  I am tempted to get one of those little glass cases to display my winning squig in. Maybe even get an engraved plate with the date and name of the squig on it. ("Belial Squig; March 2011, First Place") :o

Of course, she who must be obeyed won't let me keep it in her display cupboard with her bells (she collects fancy bells, with fancy handles), but I might sneak it in there anyway.   ;D

I could imagine that right now:
She who must be obeyed: *loud scream* hun there is a squig in my cupboard.

Skeetergod: Don't worry dear I will call the exterminator. 


Still congrats on winning.

Modeling competition.  There was a bonus award I offered out of my own teef reserve if anyone used zogwort to turn a squig into a squig, but no one tried that.

There was a thread about playing a squig based game  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210224.0) and in my batrep Zog turned Belial into a squig so I made a model of a squig and named it Belial Squig. You can find the batrep  Here  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210384.0)

And here is the picture of Belial Squig

Speaking of zogwart, a friend of mine modeled a "squig" made by zogwart as a pile of poop......a bit of a funny concept, I think.

I was wondering, just mostly a curiosity really, but why isn't thread a sticky? Seems to be the goto thread for us for a great many many things upto and including tactica and guides not to mention the bank account... as I said just wondering because sometimes I wanna check something like paint guide or bank account and I have to look for it

Post by: Azonalanthious on April 7, 2011, 09:27:17 PM
My personal experience is the surest way to get something ignored by someone new to a forum (not this forum specifically, just forums in general) is to sticky it.  :/  Not saying it should work that way, just that it seems to in practice.  Which makes stickying this thread a bit of a balance act -- non-sticked we are more likely to get new members, stickied would be handier for those who know where it is.  Since I don't believe I've ever seem it fall off the first page or even down more then a dozen posts or so, I think its generally pretty easy to find and so worth keeping unstickied, but that is just my opinion.

Ah, well put that way it makes perfect sense. As I've I stated before this is my first online forum community I've joined, my local club just started one on the first of this month before it was just a bunch of word of mouth and setting up games on the weekends, very chaotic. I do like it here though as I get a plethora of information and activities to play with to keep me interested in the game and most importantly the modeling

Going to have to say I agree with Azonalanthious.  Stickies in most places do get totally ignored.  This is relatively where people bring up topics not to mention we get new members or have events where members get teef so Skeetergod does an update.  All of the activity keeps this post on the front page and honestly that is a good thing because we have such active members.

Ok, I got pics of how I do bad moons, just need to know how do I add to your painting guide Angel or should I do a separate one and somehow link them?

Also where would I post a final army shot so all my ork friends (bosses included) can see? Do I post it in the painting forum and do a link here?
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: angel of death 007 on April 10, 2011, 11:00:40 PM
Rayvn 70...  My painting guide is a published article.  The best way I would recommend is to do a part II:  Bad Moons Theme and then you could put the link to my article to start off if you wanted.  Then say in step 10 or wherever you could put after step X then to achieve a Bad Moons color theme you can do (a) (b) (c) or whatever you want to use.

To link yours to mine you could just comment on mine and post the link.  Might be able to get in touch with someone who could edit mine I will have to look into it as it was my first article I have done. 

Final army shots I would recommend posting in the Faces of Waaagh thread.  Then you could post a comment here with the link after you get them loaded up.

I shall do a how to as part 2 as you suggested with links to yours on the metal and blacks.

I would love to do each clan(in my style)it could be added onto your base of Goffs, I'm a speed painter so it should at least be fun

Well if you are doing the whole thing differently then you could just do a speed painting article for Bad Moons.  That wouldn't step on my toes.  nothing wrong with getting a different perspective.

Workin' on it!  I've been away for awhile, so I'm trying to get the creative juices flowing again.  I figured I should start with Eldar, since I am a POC leader over there and I have greater knowledge of that army, but I'm thinking about doing another article for Orks... just trying to come up with a good topic.

As a suggestion (prepares to duck out of the way of thrown scalples) maybe get with Adamscurr and finish the rockit buggy article HERE (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=211722.0)

I was about to go bother him, but since you are looking for something to do.... ;D

Then maybe get the finished version as a published article and entered into the bootcamp. Just a suggestion....
If not, I was going to bother him next week when I get a few days off.

This thread (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=93854.0) explains how to put words in your links in the opening post.  You can also see how to do it by quoting my post as though you were going to reply, and looking at the formating.

In short, what you have to do is to put = after the first URL inside the square brackets, then add the link between the brackets, and type the name of your link between the two url tags.  It's difficult to show, because the board automatically converts the code into a link, unless you put spaces in it, which is why I suggest that you look at the thread I've linked you to, and try quoting this post.  You can also add other coding to make the link stand out more, but you can read more about that in the thread I linked you to above  :).

A very well played game.  Though you could classify your opponents army as a mechanized or hybrid guard list it is not exactly a leafblower style list.  It lacked the psychic battle squad(s) and the sheer amount of ordinance that most leafblower style lists have.  (basically the point of a leafblower list is to wipe out and cause units to run off the board fairly early in the game)  Between the psychic battle squads ability to lower a units leadership and the sheer amount of fire power the ordinances can put down it is sure to break squads and cause them to be "blown" (run) off the board.  Atleast that is how typical leafblower lists I have seen work. 

Leafblower lists are extremely effective against armies without psychic defensive capabilities and even more so against armies with low leadership to start with.

Welcome to the green side. There is a plethora of info here. I suggust you go to the top of this forum and peruse the stickies. Look at the armies posted in the faces of the waagh thread, maybe you might like a few of their armies. Then look through the boot camp, you might decide on a few "must have" units. Then go to the first page of this thread for the FAQ and some more good stuff.

This shoud help you to decide what kind of army you would like. Now, I am a speed freak, if you want my recommendation, then I will tell you to get trucks, more trucks, buggies, more buggies, bikers more bikers, and battle wagons. (oh and some boys to ride in them all) But hey, thats just me, you have to decide what fits you. When you are ready just repost in this thread that you would like to join the waagh and we will add you to our list.

You know, Skeet you remind of a hira krishna at the airport with the speed freeks but it's all good I've converted perhaps a tactica on the different orky armies might be in order?

Welcome Emperors Fists, I've gone through all the stickies of the different boards and I have to say this is the most active and updated one of them all. The boot camp area has loads of info for you to help you along the way of krumpiness. As for the list all I can say is are you going for fluff, damage, fun, catch-all? The beautiful thing about orks is there's no right or wrong, either way you have fun regardless, take me for example I have a Bad Moon army, it like yellow orks but it's a speed freak list which are normally red, Angel has the goffs and I believe is horde which is accordance to the fluff Skeed knows only how to paint red now a days so naturally he's a freak list, best I can say is post up a 1500 list, let us do our thing to it with info and such you take it with a grain of salt, proxy models get a game in and you done, orks will grab you and that's where you'll stay. I swear, Skeet warned me and sluffed it off like "whatever, ok" but I got hooked after painting the first mob and playing the first game. It was nuts. But I ramble I get so excited about orks go through the boot camp area, bat reps, army lists, conversions and have fun

Wow, my teef account is remaining very... consistent.

Well, I just received an awesome Deff Dread in the mail today (I tried to get a pair, but I got outbid on e-bay in the final seconds on the second auction); and its motivating me to get my green on... so to speak.  ;)

I've been thinking about some orky ideas; probably nothing exceptionally good.  Awhile back Gutstikk posted an "Unconventional Eldar Tactics" article, where he explored the non-standard, highly situational but potentially devestating tactics available to the Eldar.  I'm thinking of trying something simlar for Orks.  I've got a few crazy ideas floating through my noggin right now; I'll try to get something posted that's worth a few teef.  ;)

Something that I have been meaning to do for a while is make a "Ork Army Build" article/tactica for all our visitors and yoofs. In other words orks army lists that seem to work well. Some examples:

The Speed Freaks (you know I would have to list them first), as many vehicles as you can, nothing walks, everyone rides or is painted red to go faster (even bikes) that drive accross the board and are usually in assault on turn 2.

The Kan Wall, two KFF meks providing cover for two deffdreads and 9 killa kans, that provide cover and fire support for 4 to 6 large units of boys, that walk accross the board and kill everything as there is nowhere for the enemy to run.

The Rolling Thunder, 6 battle wagons (or maybe 8 if the nob squads are small) 3 with 20 boys, 3 (or 5) with nobs, all with death rollers, that cruise accross the board and what doesn't die under the rollers gets chopped up by the nobs or boys.

Of course there are other klans that may have some interesting mixed lists, that haven't been named, or don't have a name, that might need to be listed. ;)

If you want, we can co-write this article/tactica on the "Types of Ork Armies" (or whatever we decide on for a title) and get this posted so that all those wandering ork players can see in one spot the many good ways to build and play an ork army. Of course this means I may not immediatly jump on new posters and prothelize for the kult, (well maybe I still will) I can just post a link to where the army build post is and maybe influence them to read the speed freak army list first.(http://i666.photobucket.com/albums/vv27/Ralston1/evilsmiley-1.jpg)

I'd be happy to help out with such a project, but I must confess I don't know enough about any particular "archtype" to write with any real authority.  I'm pretty good with how individual units function, and even with the interactions between some units, but I'm still exploring the Orks as an army and I haven't spent a great deal of time working on any particular type.  I substitute stuff all the time, since the actual models I have on hand are relatively few right now and I'm still proxying quite a bit.

Righto! What I will do is start a thread of builds. Of course I will be posting about speed freaks (others who are also red kult members are welcome to post their list too), and we will have various authors of other type builds such as incredibleskulk doing a kan wall, and whoever else jumps in with their build.

Then after a few weeks or so, I will compile the whole thing into one coherent article and post it for review, or if we want we can clean up the whole thread (remove comments and just have lists) and get it moved into the stickies.

If it's ok since I am so new to the Waagh I would think it would be helpful to give a new Boyz perspective on the individual lists as well as the obvious strengths pointed out by the veterans. Maybe an alternative minimum starting list for the new Ork? or a 1000 point list that would capture the flavor of the list without all the bells and whistles? A new to the tabletop perspective. so we could have escalating versions of the lists.
Boyz(1000) Nob(1500) Boss(2000) I'd be happy to help with editing or contributing to the Boyz level of any of the lists.

Well, I am looking for lists people actually play, so if you have taken the list to a game or two, post it.

Boyz(1000) Nob(1500) Boss(2000) I'd be happy to help with editing or contributing to the Boyz level of any of the lists.

Thats kinda what I am doing. By getting the lists of those who have played well with their army, I hope to offer to all a "show and tell" kinda thing. This way a new ork player can look through the lists to see what is working, and maybe copy one, or make a blend of one to suit the new players tastes and temperment (or vet players to change their list to something that works better than what they are trying now). To save a lot of trial and error on the part of ork players everywhere (or at least for the ones on this forum). 8)

ok i know i said i would join the Waaagh when i had something to show for it but it wasnt my fault Warseer has been down loads and all the tutorials i was going to use became lost on the internets. However now that Warseer is back up i have saved what i needed and now my painting can begin.

I will start with my AoBR Nob from WD as my test and "Barry" model, after i finish that i have my first 10 man slugga boyz squad primed up and ready for paint.

My FW Warboss on Bike is mostly cleaned up and ready for the pinning / subassembly phase; however i want to have more stuff to epoxy at once so ill pin and glue when my Big Trakk is finished being cleaned.

I have started on some AoBR Deffkoptas and i am trying to find a way to attach some plastic Killer Kan arms w/ saws to the front so i have WYSIWYG buzzsaws.

so sign me up and ill try and put some WIP shots up (it might be hard to see because i use grey car primer and it all looks the same)

i have gone through the stikkies and noticed there wasnt anything for how-tos for modelling and painting.

i am new to Orks so i have been following Sukigod's blog on Warseer and he has some good step by step How-To. He has one for painting Ork skin, painting straps and ropes, how to do a quick and easy basing that involves no painting, how to paint battle damage using a sponge. he also has some nice modelling guides as well; he has a really nice one for magnetized warbikers so you can swap from regular bikers to warbikers.

could we add Orky related painting, modelling and konversion guides to the stikies?

I did a painting article awhile back it really isn't an advanced painting article but it is more of a speed painting type article but you can get decent table top results and has a step by step kinda basis. 

Assembly Line Painting, Getting your boyz painted quickly (Article link) (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?action=articles;sa=view;article=963)

As far as bikers to nob bikers goes I don't think I have seen anything like that but I have been working on some recently never thought to do an article or anything about them.

I know Rayvn70 is working on an article on how to konvert deff koptas to rokkit buggies which is very informative.   

I have seen a few other posts in which painting was done but we don't have a huge amount of painting or modeling articles yet.  I know when I did my article in October we didn't have any sort of article done for several years in the ork project forum.  Recently since we formed the Green Menace the amount of activity has growed and there is a lot more tactica and articles being worked on or in the process of being worked on so we are expanding with our members.  I hope to by the end of the year see several articles on all different aspects of the orks considering how many skilled members we have amongst our ranks.

Anyway welcome aboard.

I also want to Welcome Wartooth aboard as well. 

I also wanna congratulate The Gretchin, Chaos40kAD, and Yeller Dizapline on moving up to Boy status.  Keep up the good work guys.

The Navy is a "different" life. I too was in the Navy before I joined the Coast Guard. With my 4 years in the Navy and my 22 years in the Coast Guard, I saw a lot of places and did a lot of things that a civilian will never do.

One thing; always remember that you volunteered, and that service to your country can sometimes be a real inconvenience.

Serve with honor, I am proud to know you.

Az congrats on the Navy.  I have several friends that serve as well as the majority of my family that did.  They really like it.  My old Boss (irl) was in the Navy and was on a sub and he really liked it.  I hope where ever you do get stationed that it is to your liking.  Make sure to drop in a tell us how everything is going and after you get situated do some krumpin in the name of the WotW. 

Boot camp reguardless of where it is, is always fun.  After bootcamp and you get stationed hopefully you will be able to keep playing and will be able to get active again.

Yeah, dad was navy, granddad was navy.  Seems like everyone else I know, including my step dad, several uncles, and pretty much my entire local gaming group went army though, and are razzing me a bit over going navy instead.  ;)

I was very happy, then very disappointed to learn that the navy allows you to do a 500 yard swim to pass your physical quals instead of a run (I was a competitive swimmer throughout high school and my 500 yard times are faster then the max possible rating level.  By a good 25%.  *grin*)... but not in boot camp, where it has to be a 1.5 mile run time.  And my run times are well short of the minimum level to pass quals.  So *sigh* gotta keep training.  I hate running, I'm no good at running, it should only be done if you are being chased and just means you die tired.  But ya gotta what the chief is gonna make you do I guess.

I hope to keep gaming once I'm out of boot and posted somewhere.  Seems like 9 out of 10 gamers I meet are former military, so logically there should be some others around to play with.  I'm already planning to use a bit of my enlistment bonus to pick up a grey knights army, and (of course) some more orks...  ;)

Having been in the military for a while I think I have some helpful advice. You need to remember the reason that you joined. Times will get tough and you will want to quit but if you remember why you are there you will keep going. Deployments are long and boring but you'll make it through. When you join you will realize that you won't have time for all the things you used to (like krumping some 'umiez) but that's part of the life. Stay motivated and you will pick up rank quickly. If there is one thing you need to remember before going in it is that common sense and self preservation will save the day. Have fun and good luck.

Minsc, Welcome to the Green Side, you will see your name in the bank account next update.

On the first page of this thread is the FAQ, make sure to check it out.

Now, in the event that you didn't look at the stickies above, you should go to the Boot Kamp here at
THIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=130950.0)

While your here, make sure to post a list of what you have in the faces of the waagh thread, so we can see what kind of orks you have.

I am sure Angel of Death 007 will be along shortly to smack a welcome on you as well. So, get out there and krump something...

Minsc and Boss Thudfoot welcome aboard.   Sorry I have been a little slow as of recently due to having a lot of stuff come up. 

I wanted to put this out there and get ideas for events that everyone would like to see over the summer.  I know we are all still probably in work mode but this summer should open up some interesting events based on activites that the Council has discussed. 

My personal thought is that Ard boyz is approaching relatively fast so maybe we will be seeing some lists.  My personal goal is to have most of my ard boyz list painted by the time of the first round of events.  It looked to be a heavy task at the begining of the year but now I have only a few squads left to paint.  (all my add on's have been bought and built)

I know we will be looking forward to a few articles which are in their final stages toward publication.  So I look for this summer to be fairly busy over all.

AXEBLADE
Markay
Saint-Lane

 Well, you new guys thought you would sneak into the Way of the Waagh without me noticing and thereby prothelizing you for the kult?

Haw, I found you, and your names have been added to the bank account.

As for the prothelizing... Well, I suppose it may be a teeny bit too late to try to get you into the kult, so I will have to zoom up on you someday, remember; no one expects the ork inquisition... ???

You will see your names in the bank account on the next update which should be this coming Monday (sometime in the afternoon).

Congrats on being a published ork. (Does take a while don't it?) Good job on toughing it out, you improved the lives of orks everywhere.

Good job, good stuff, and two teef for you.

On the note of good stuff, here is some more good stuff; I made a little "conversion" of a new green baron that you can find  here  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=214551.0) that while not published like yours is, may (along with yours) start a green baron conversion mania!

Also, if there is anyone who signed up that I missed, just let me know and I will get you entered into the bank account.

btw the way I would like to submit all my articles to your project section, how do I go about that?

By clicking on the link in my signature, and reading through the guidelines  :).

I strongly recommend, however, that you do not submit all your articles at once.  This is because there are already a couple of Ork articles awaiting publication, and we (the Project Editors) have a system whereby we don't upload articles about the same army consecutively, or in large blocks, as it makes the front page too one dimensional.

As a general note for all of you, please note that all your articles are very much welcomed, and we want to publish them all, the Ork board is out performing all the other boards (save for Imperial Guard) to such an extent when it comes to producing articles that we simply cannot publish them as regularly as we would like.  If you want to see your articles published more quickly, I encourage you to get other boards to step up to the plate in terms of the production of articles, as the more articles we have from other boards to upload with Ork articles, the quicker yours will be published  :).

Apologies for the interruption, but I've received a number of PMs asking about the uploading process, so I thought that it would be beneficial to explain this in detail.  As ever, my inbox is always open for specific questions.

I've been into 40k about a year and a half now. I bought the Ork codex at that time and proxied a few games with some models my friend gave me. I put 40k on the shelf for about a year and I just picked it up again about a month ago. My appetite for all things orky has only grown in proportion to the amount of free time that I have this summer. This is my request to join the WotW and be part of this community!

I just wanna help in any way I can and most know, I'm kinda new to the ork race but they a whole hell of allot of fun, I know this and conversions are almost endless and I'm constantly chopping stuff up and remaking in the name Gork and Mork

I did go to a tourny with my orks last week, first one with them, I faired pretty well I got 5th place and won "Most Interesting Army" as well as "Most Balanced Army" and the "Fair Player Award". Not a bad outing if I say so, I won a few awards and got me a buttload of plasticard and bitz to further my orky kustoms! I did "nerd" out when I received my prizes by yelling WAAAAHHHHGGG!!! though

Again Grats and thank you

I did "nerd" out when I received my prizes by yelling WAAAAHHHHGGG!!! though


Thats perfectly alright rayvn! It happens to the best of us now and then. The overwhelming vicissitude of playing orks often leaves one contemplating the finer details of existence. With chin resting on fist and a space cadet glow, sometimes you are unable to resist your orkish nature. So you stand tall and proud without hunching over, much like the 'oomies do, towering over your friends, neighbors, and cohorts. You bend your knees at an obtuse angle, tilt your head back to stretch out your esophagus, and belt out the most bloodcurdling and feared battlecry this side of the Milky Way.
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!

HA! Exactly what I did too.

I have some ideas for a new warboss on a bike using a skaven doomwheel and doing something akin to Greivous on his wheel vehicle in the Star Wars movie, though it'll be more orky and I have to work out details with sketches and need to find some of the old leman russ treads to help with the visuals

Oh No, now you did it! As soon as I read that I immediatly realized that I must now have one, although I have a warboss on a bike, he is not riding a doom wheel.  :o

See what you did? Now I am going to fume about this until she who must be obeyed gives me my allowance so I can buy a doomwheel and get started converting.  ::)

Sir, you are just a bad influence on me. And when she who must be obeyed asks why I have to get another (explicitive deleted) model, I am blaming it all on you.  ;)

Tell her I twisted yer arm and said this is how they're made now till the new kit comes out and she can beat me up instead, but you'll still have to sleep next to her and I'm safe *snickers*

the idea is that the boss is inside of the wheels with some orky goodness on the outside  as well as some tank tracks going around the tread area.... Visions bro I have many visions and I have many tools to make these visions into a WAAAHHGG!!

The orks is growing like a wild fire.    First the craftworlds then the universe.  It is good to be green.

Zilverscale... you have been added to the ranks.   It is always good to start a new army and having that many orks donated is kind of like a calling to the green side.    It is like one of those clues that you get about what path to take in life.    Either way hope you enjoy the greenside.

Thats exactly how I got started with this orks! I began to take an interest in 40k, because one of my friends played. He noticed that I favored the orks over all the other races. 4 months later (on my birthday), he gave me 48 grots, 30 boyz, 5 nobz, 2 burnas, and 1 warboss. Thus my waaagh! was born.

AcousticBanditx welcome aboard.   Hopefully you find a love for the greenskins like our other members have.   Trust me I started them awhile ago (when they were released right at the end of 4th edition before 5th).   I shelfed them for awhile as I took a bit of a break from 40k and then got right back into them.   And now I got an apocalypse ork army.  It is very addicting and I love the konversions.

Haha... beat ya to the punch this time Skeetergod.   I am sure Skeetergod will be on later to add you to the bank account so you can start earning some teef.   Get yourself a few boxes or a battleforce (or AOBR set of orks) and enter in this month's build off.

http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=215442.0 (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=215442.0)

No better time to get started and earn some teef.    And for the rest of you July is my birth month so as a special gift I wanna see lots of entries in the Build Off this month.   I have been busting my butt and should have the ard boyz finished either tonight or tomorrow for June's buildoff.

Well, we only allowed 3 pics and not allowed to comment on said pics. I wanna update my army status for painted stuff but am unallowed to do to the restraints conferred by forum and Boss rules, sadly my best painted stuff, whilst is posted, is all you'll see due to current rules of the forum, and I'm all about playing by the rules but I also want to show off my horde of boys as well as the vehicles I've done and my bosses, surely there's something we can come up with to allow us to showcase our orks and perhaps talk about and/or get ideas from other orks rather than waiting for a random post to pop up in the painting forum. We are stronger than that! If I have to, I'll start a new forum linked with photobucket to help I want to see these armies grow and build and get bigger! and to help the players who's skill of painting isn't quite up our standard, and by that mean us guys who have years of experience painting, to offer help and tips to the yoofs.

Rayvn70 you bring up a very good point.  I know a lot of other forums have people post updated pics and such when they complete a squad or a unit.   

I am almost leaning more infavor of this style as it keeps not only the Faces of Waagh tread growing but it also allows members to post all of thier work for others to see.   I think I might have to bring it up thru the council and possibly see about changing it.  I don't really see a need so much as to only have a small section to display our work.

If we try to keep the questions involving the colors or models in the pics I think it should keep it to minimum and will help keep the post active last post on that forum is is sad, it really is, as I've done so many orks, as have you< Skeet, Adam, and so many other, but can't showcase without posting then posting a link to the post, that extra work, we got grots for that. While I'm happy to do that I really shouldn't I don't think, I love to show my stuff and get yer ideas, I shouldn't have to post in a separate forum to get ideas for orks

Post by: SKEETERGOD on July 1, 2011, 08:19:32 AM
If you look through the posts on the faces of the waagh you will see some of us who have way more than the three pictures. (including yours truly)

I think the original post on picture limit was when the pictures were posted and hosted on this thread, but with the advent of things like Photobucket, where pictures no longer eat up bandwidth, the picture thing is no longer an issue like it was before. I remember a little while back where.... ooops, I might be showing my age.

The real limit is the character count, like when doing batreps, only so many words fit in one post, so you sometimes have to post twice to finish the batrep, so it is with the faces of the waagh thread, you are limited to a number of characters (I think 20,000 but I may be off a little) so as long as you don't exceed that you can post as much as will fit in that post. Like my list of lists, I couldn't get it all in one post and had to break it down into three posts.

If you keep your "stuff" contained to the one post in the faces of the waagh, I see nothing wrong with posting up your Photobucket (or equivalent) links as your not actually hosting the picture here. Just make sure to do thumbnails so that the post won't get overly long.
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: Changeyname on July 1, 2011, 12:50:48 PM
The limit was put in place because not everyone has a fast internet connection and a page of 20 posts (the default setting) full of pictures would take ages to load
If you note Gutstikk's wording it was only ever a polite request and never a rule as such anyway

If you guys are serious about a change we can discuss it here to keep board clutter to a minimum and it affects the Waaagh anyway :P
I'm open to tweaking the faces thread around a little if you guys want it and I doubt any of the other mods would have a massive issue with it - within reason of course ;)

The Bank Account is updated, you can find it here at  THIS LINK  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701)

This week there was a lot of good stuff, lots of teef were earned, and we are at 70 members. (more good stuff)

As always, if I missed anybody's teef earning work, feel free to PM me or post it here in this thread so that I can get your account updated.

If you guys are serious about a change we can discuss it here to keep board clutter to a minimum and it affects the Waaagh anyway :P

I'm open to tweaking the faces thread around a little if you guys want it and I doubt any of the other mods would have a massive issue with it - within reason of course ;)

I would like to see the faces of the waagh thread increased, say 50% a page, so that it is 30k characters instead of the current 20k. I have a little over 9k of painted orks and I would be unable to post all those pictures in my current page.

Of course I could start a second page, but then that might look kinda funky as I would have to put a link to the second page at the end of the first page, and depending on how many more faces get posted my page 2 would be much further away, rather than concurrent. But hey, thats just me.

If the other orks don't want a larger faces of the waagh page then I guess I will have to live with what we have now. I really do appreciate the offer and would like to take you up on it, if the other orkses agree.

I am going to open it up for a vote on the council.   I propose that the Faces of Waaagh sticky be just like everyone elses "show us your army type post"  Meaning that if the vote passes you will be able to...
-Post as many posts as you like in the Faces thread... (no serial posting back to back)
-comment on other people's work or offer suggestions

The need to only be able to post one post in the thread is not only limiting the growth of the Face's thread, but it is limiting the members who want to exhibit their work.   

Also with people commenting it would allow several posts in between pictures this would keep the pages from over crowding and being slow to load.   Not to mention members would be only maybe posting 3-4 pics at a time and not say 20 pics of their army.

Well, I kinda like it the way it is, where one member has one post/page to show off his/her army. The no comments inbetween do make it rather formal, but I would hate to see it get too spammed out with all the "hey thats nice" comments. So we will have to come to a compromise on that aspect. 

Maybe think of it like a blog page, where your post is about your army, and its accomplishments, (some of us put links to batreps in their faces post too) sorta like a bragging page, just with a larger size limit.

Hello,

I would like to join the Waaagh. I have been playing Orks since before our last codex update, and have always loved the greenskins. I have about 3000 or so points (its been a while since I counted up all of my stuff).

I'll be posting my stuff to the faces thread soon, I just need to actually take some pictures... probably won't be until after this weekend

speaking of this weekend, I will be at Wargamescon in Austin TX this weekend with my nob-heavy speed freaks list. If any of you boyz will be there, let me know! always nice to meet other ork players. I played my orks there 2 years ago and took 2nd, hoping for a repeat performance this year.

Welcome to the Way of the Waagh, make sure to read the first page of this thread as it has a lot of good stuff and the all important FAQ. Then  look at the stickies above, you should go to Boot Camp here atTHIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=130950.0)

Your name has been added to the bank account, and you will see your name there on the next update (Mondays). Angel of Death 007 should be along shortly to add you to the rolls.

muffinman331 welcome to the green side.    I have been building since our last codex as well.   Good to see members with a large ork army as they usually have quite the experience with different ork units.   We got an awesome and very knowledgeable group so I hope you find yourself at home.

Dunno who all is from Texas but depending how the Battle of the Boss's works out maybe we can try to coordinate a larger scale meet up day in different regions (if it is possible).   Again this is just an idea at this point but since our WotW is growing so rapidly soon it won't be long before we are able to find other members in our proximity.   I mean orks is going to take over the Earth...  and then the future universe....  HA HA HA...   *evil smile*

As always, if I missed anything, just let me know and I will get it credited to your account. (notice I didn't say tootie sweetie this time?)

As for the battle of the bosses, make sure you all head on over to that thread and give us some ideas for a mission and/or scenario.

Post by: Mercutioh on July 11, 2011, 04:46:19 PM
If you look through the posts on the faces of the waagh you will see some of us who have way more than the three pictures. (including yours truly)

I think the original post on picture limit was when the pictures were posted and hosted on this thread, but with the advent of things like Photobucket, where pictures no longer eat up bandwidth, the picture thing is no longer an issue like it was before. I remember a little while back where.... ooops, I might be showing my age.


If you keep your "stuff" contained to the one post in the faces of the waagh, I see nothing wrong with posting up your Photobucket (or equivalent) links as your not actually hosting the picture here. Just make sure to do thumbnails so that the post won't get overly long.
I kind of inferred it from Skeeter's post
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: Changeyname on July 11, 2011, 05:05:37 PM
And you'll notice I immediately told you all otherwise, from the very next post:

The limit was put in place because not everyone has a fast internet connection and a page of 20 posts (the default setting) full of pictures would take ages to load
If you note Gutstikk's wording it was only ever a polite request and never a rule as such anyway

It has nothing to do with hosting on the site, it never did and you're perfectly free to do so, others prefer photobucket or imageshack or another similar image hosting service, this is also freely allowed

The limit was and still is purely because a full thread of multiple images would take an age to load, hence three each means 60 images per page to decrease loading times
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: SKEETERGOD on July 11, 2011, 08:33:25 PM
You know, I think that in the future when I use the words "I think", that I will have to use way more words to the tune of "to the best of my understanding" or "IF the way it was that I understood it".

When I typed the words "I think that it was from the days of old" kinda thing, I should have inferred that I did not have the perfect understanding of the whole big picture ( pun intended).

So, if you feel you should not post pictures because you misunderstood my poorly written statement, I apologize. Please post your pictures, it is one of the things I enjoy about this forum is that I get to look at other really cool ork models (or orkified models, if you will). 

As Changeyname has stated, the "limit" was a request, not a set in stone rule. The limit is there to be kind to those who do not have broadband or wireless broadband internet. Yes, it is hard to believe, but there are still those in this world who still use dial up, or DSL for their internet needs. TO THE BEST OF MY UNDERSTANDING this is why the request was made, to make sure that other users of this forum won't have to wait forever for a page to load everytime they try to read a thread.

The former statement that was quoted was when TO THE BEST OF MY UNDERSTANDING AT THAT TIME the forums were more controlled due to bandwidth issues, and all sorts of other stuff that I remember being discussed, that no longer apply, or that I understood incorrectly. Since I am not a mod, I do not have a perfect understanding of the way things are run.

In the future, I will try to refrain from any inferring of knowledge that I think that I know, but don't, and if I do I will use the big words to obfuscate the issue further.

It looks as though we have a great turn out this month in the Scrapyard build off with many of the projects taking shape.   

The battle of the bosses is nearing in under a week now myself and Skeetergod will be going to battle.

starstrider has moved on from yoof-hood and is now officially a boy.   Congrats.

Next week I will be out of town for a bit for my trip up to Pensacola and I will not have access to a computer at that time.  So if anyone tries to contact me they might not hear anything back for a few days.  Don't worry I didn't run away with the circus and I will be back.

Alrighty everyone, I must draw your attention to  The Battle of The Bosses  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=215512.msg2626944#msg2626944)

AOD and I are going to play a 5.3k apoc battle. AOD is driving to Panama City with army, and I have reserved the store and tables, (not sure about pre-ordering pizza) and we are asking nicely for your assistance.

This game will be decided on personal and hidden/secret objectives. Both myself and AOD need you all to PM us a hidden objective (or two). Make sure to only PM me with objectives you want me to meet, but don’t tell AOD, instead send him an objective you want him to meet, but don’t tell me.

As for personal objectives I choose the “shoot the squiggoth in the beehynde". To count as objective met, it has to be a shot from the rear arc of the squiggoth, and must cause a wound. If the shot does not cause a wound (insufficient strength, armor save etc.) then the objective has not been met.

Hope to hear from you all very soon! Only 4 days before AOD hits the road, and its game on.

Hello fellow green skins

Ive been playing orcs since 4thed and playing since 3rd but ive never really got into the full swing of thing do to the remote location I live at. ( 3hours from closest store that sold gw stuff) no longer a problem I wish to get back in full swing with everything again and I thought the best way to do that was to find a decent group to talk with about it and i think i may have found it.  8) right here on 40kO. ill be around

JK, I obviously am one of the higher "ranked" orks here due to my previous attempts at a taktika...(by the way when are those gonna get added to the boot camp..I CANT WAIT ;D) But I am actually still learning some of the taktiks myself(run at the enemy and waagh...so complicated LOL)

As you can tell from my example stated here...while you may get the hang of using one squad one way, you never get the strategies of all the squads mastered...at least....before GW releases the next edition.

ANYWAY! welcome to the dark er i mean green side....May the WAAAAGH be with you....always. ;)

That would be yours truly.   make sure u make it over to the battle of the bosses thread.   All betting will be handled there...

Zilverscale though our latest codex was a long time in the making.  I really think our new codex did Orks justice.  Not to mention made some decent options for different types of lists.  You don't get to see that too often with newer codexes...  As many of the newer codex's tend to favor certain must have units / builds.    I do however must say that after 5th edition was released my two favorite codexes were orks and dark eldar.   Though orks was technicallly released at the tail end of 4th edition (but wrote with 5th edition in mind).    Both gave a lot of options and allowed for different types of army builds... without having to go for powerbuilds.  Very balanced codexes...

Zangolas:  thank you for your interest in the WotW.  You have been added as a prospect.  Remember you have 30 days to follow the rules and show us just the type of ork you are.   I hope for you to join our ranks soon.

Make sure you go to the bank account and read the part about earning teef again. You get teef for tacticas when your tactica gets on the project board. Hint; you can find it  here  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701)

So, make any corrections as recommended by the members of the forum and then post it on the ork project board, that is when the teef are awarded. It kinda has to be that way otherwise everyone would be posting one line tacticas just to earn teef.

"Tactica: Run towards the enemy and krump him good. Now where is my teef?...."

See what I mean? After a reasonable time for people to reply, and you make any corrections, then move it to the project board. That is when you should post your tactica link here, (so we can find it) and that is when you earn your teef.

Not to mention that they changed how IC's work with Snikrot and a few other items.   

Updating the tactica would have to be done by the author. Tactica can be edited by the author but anyone responding to the edited article will often commit thread necromancy due to the time lapse, new tactica can be wrote to take into account newer rules or FAQ's. 

For example some tactica wrote for 4th edition doesn't work so well in fifth.  As all posts are time dated the reader should take them in context.  Even though not everything in the tactica might still apply with new FAQ's or newer editions a reader can usually take something from the post / tactica/ or article.  (even if all of it still doesn't apply).   
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: AXEBLADE on July 20, 2011, 11:35:49 PM
I would like to suggest to all people who write tacticas that they put the date, codex and rules edition and FAQ edition underneath the title. This way people can see easily how old it is compared with the current rules set. The reason this is better than a date is for older codexes ie tau which haven't really had a chance to change their tacticas since 5th ed came out (other than to address a few armies which have particularly noteworthy things which effect them).
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: Irisado on July 21, 2011, 07:33:27 AM
Just to note that all tactical discussions submitted as articles are stamped with a date at the end by the Project Editor who undertakes the coding, and that the original author can edit their uploaded articles to accommodate FAQ rulings if necessary, and published articles are not replied to in the conventional way (i.e. comments are used rather than replies), so there is no thread necromancy issue.

For tactical discussions which are not submitted as articles, they just tend to be re-written when new editions of codices come around, as Angel of Death explained.

Betting is now open.....

If you pick a Nob from a unit or Nob from a nob squad and he survives the battle you will triple your bet...

Does a painboy count as a bet that would triple my teef? That's what I was thinking when I bet, but if not that's OK.....just being the Git that I know I am......

Does a painboy count as a bet that would triple my teef? That's what I was thinking when I bet, but if not that's OK.....just being the Git that I know I am......

Yes you are right, the painboy was worth 18 points as you wagered 6 and the painboy survived. BTW did you notice that you were named in the batrep? Your painboy FNP did keep the flash gits in the fight. So that is a total of 28 teef you earned.

Good News...  My warbuggy tactica article is published on the front page of the website...  Good times...

Adam

 Wow, good stuff, congratulations and kudos to you, oh, and that's 3 more teef in your account.

Awesome job and yet another fine ork shines in the spot light.

+1 to the_humble_terminat or's point. If AoD007's 'Ard boyz nob died in the battle (i musta missed it) then ignore this post please.

He didn't die but he was falling off the board and could not regroup.  I thought for sure they were an objective with how much shooting they received.

Answering that kinda takes away from Skeet and I's battle report.  You will see the objectives at the bottom of each of our posts and who achieved what, just follow Skeet's link as he did an excellent job with the battle report.

I gotta see what area would work best or if any other bosses / Nobz wanted to host one in their area as well.   

I can say it will more than likely be in FL. on my and probably Skeetergod's front. 

A lot of great stuff to do in FL area.  I know several areas here would be great locations to have something at and I got some pull with some of the hotels.  Also with some of the gaming groups and gaming organizers of events in FL.

If we do it, it will probably be done big and right.  Maybe even with some prize support if I can get with a friend of mine that organizes large scale 40k events.   With that just expect it to be big though and not just secluded to our WotW.  Though maybe we could plan our own event after the event or what not.

I was wondering a few days ago about possibly having a VA hosted Ork Battle...would that be at all possible?
I am not of Nob status....yet....bu t I know I am able to get my LGS owner to give me the OK to bring him business.....Let me know if this is OK.

FYI-I do not live near a HUGE place to do this at...as my LGS only has 6 tables to play on.....1 of which is usually only used for tournaments if needed....

Let me know if I have the OK from you guys!

Phoenix

If I get the official ruling then I would say yes as he technically wasn't killed.  However if Skeetergod wants to challange that on the basis that he was falling back and could not regroup, thus counting as destroyed then I could see his point as well. 

As Skeetergod is the keeper of teef, not to mention the model in question was one of mine, I will let him make the final decission.
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: the_humble_terminator on July 23, 2011, 12:39:51 PM
My opinion on the Ruling about whether or not to give The Phoenix teef is that he should get them....as The Nob is not dead, since the game did not officially end with either Turn 7....or not rolling high enough to continue to Turn 6, or 7...so I think he should get them.

Take it to PM or make a new thread but don't do it here

I think that teef should be awarded as well due to the fact as the model/unit will not recover and would count as destroyed anyways, but on the other hand it's not ran off the table yet so isn't destroyed...yet but will be soon. But it's not my call though I'd count it as destroyed/defeated/killed for points purposes

Drum roll please...

The Bank Account is updated as of 7-25-11. Lots of teef earned this week, mainly from gambling, Hopefully I got the bets correct, if not feel free to PM me and I will re-re-recalculate.

You can see the Bank Account on the first page of this thread, or by clicking this link  here  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701)

Post by: SKEETERGOD on July 25, 2011, 10:08:45 AM

Yes, members of the WoTW who post batreps about their orks receive teef awards.

If you post about another army that is not orks (even if you are a member of the WoTW) then you will not receive any teef. 

The WoTW is about and for orks, thus, only activities that are about your ork army, or orks in general, are all you can earn teef for. Since none of the other races in 40k use teef as currency, it would be pointless to pay space marines or eldar with teef, as they wouldn't be able to spend it anyway. That also includes tacticas, painting guides, modeling, articles, fiction, or any other activities that you can participate in on these forums.

Hope that explains it for you.

PS. I will update the bank account to reflect this answer so that others in the future will know, and knowing is half the battle.

Awesome, Athaga! Good show, I failed at the scrapyard yet again due to extreme heat and working 10 hours out doors has left me drained completely. Though I do believe the bosses are doing a trial or probation period now of 30 days. Your promotion will in due course and you are not forgotten, they see all and advance us orks in a relatively timely manner. Not to worry it happens quickly for some and sometimes slowly for others.

Again very good work and keep it up, they and us little guys are watching all  ::)

All good, bud, and thanks for the props.  Just thought I'd cut down on the searching for the bossz (I used to be a mod/lead... waaaay back on EO.  Any leadership role on a forum is... involved hahaha)

I'm hoping for another scrapyard contest... lots to build for a HUGE battle this fall.  My next project will increase my waaaaghh by 28%.  Kind of want to see if I can get it done in a month (esp. w/ work, real life, trip to Chicago, etc).  More dakka dakka!  If I ever get there, some sort of Mek title is the goal.

OK, I guess this is your way of saying you want to join the WoTW. I looked back quite a few pages and did not see a specific request, and that would explain why you are not in the bank account. (either that, or you are and you changed your name).

So, I am adding you into the bank account as Athaga Mor, and giving you your first toof. If you did change your name let me know so I can combine your accounts, if not then congrats on your fine choice to be a member of the WoTW.

Welcome aboard.  I will add you to our prospect list as soon as I am at my PC.  The Faces thread is an ork forum thread where the WotW mega thread is for members/potential members.   Anyone on the ork forum can post on the Faces Thread but to show you want to join the WotW then one has to post here.   

Also congrats on accomplishing so much painting in the Scrap yard build-off.  I think you might have accomplished more than the whole WotW this month by yourself.   Definately inspiring.   Awesome Job!

Don't worry, the teef earned from the July scrapyard are coming. Since the scrapyard ended and the bank account update were so close together, Dropfall did not have time to tell me who earned what. I think that so many teef were earned that he had to take both shoes off to count that high. (probably had to go borrow a few other peoples feet too  ;) )

As soon as Dropfall gets done counting, the teef will get credited to their accounts. So most likely you will see your bags of teef on the next update (Mondays).

Suffice to say, I failed in the scrapyard build off. [I know it's a few days after the fact but i've been without t'internet :(]

My fighta does have 4 colours on it but they are only base coats and it's a long way off and it's on a base but it hasn't been 'based' appropriately.

It seems the fates have conspired against me... I've been visiting home for the last 4 weeks and thought, "I'll have loads of free time."

The reality was, "I have loads of hangovers! and lost my detail brushes!".... pants!

Any way, if anyone is interested in seeing it through, I'll be continuing my progress in my Plog here [pics still to come... damn camera!]

I think this is the first time we had a whole week go by without a new member or someone earning teef. Have we leveled out just shy of a full green tide?

Anyways, congrats to all who placed in the Ard Boys, I will read AOD's Ard boy thread and all who took their orks to the tourney and post there, will get a toof, even if you finished 8th. Of course you will not see your bonus toof untile next week, but at least it is a toof.

As always; if I missed any toof earning activity feel free to PM me, or post it here.

So far I've completed maybe 20% of the painting, progress is being recorded in my Plog [here - http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=214433.msg2637181#new (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=214433.msg2637181#new)].

Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: OD from TV on August 19, 2011, 03:10:43 AM
We are giving out T-shirts now?  By Gork and Mork how are we going to be able to afford that, you do know that the teef system isn't a real form of currency right?

Jokes aside, we should all welcome another Ork into the fold, and Zangolas is more than deserving of that.  Besides you should be sure to butter him up as he is one of the Judges in the Bosspole month event (Remember kids bribery won't necessarily get you his vote, but I'm sure it couldn't hurt)

On a side note (in case no one noticed the past month or so), I am back on the boards on a somewhat regular status again, and rest assured those of you Yoofs that have joined up in my absence (or absent-minded-ness) who don't know me will shortly.  The WotW has grown into a fairly nice adolescence if you ask me, and we currently have a couple good things going at the moment, namely the continuing Scrapyard Build Off and the Bosspole Month Fiction event.

And if those don't pique your interest, just stay tuned, me and the rest of the WotW leaders will be cooking up more events for you all to participate in the coming months.

My internet has been off the last week but found out my phone is a mobile wi-fi so that's good, times been rough as of late with bills and such and trying to support me and my aunt & uncle, just givin ya'll a head's up is all.

I ended up selling the old dark eldar raider so new trukk forth coming from that, but I did get my hands on a skaven doomwheel and will convert that up as a warboss on a bike (just fer you skeet) and am looking at the new fantasy goblin giant spider as a battle wagon. Also I'm happy to report that even though my orks are 5-1 (locally) I'm still the only ork here some players have models but refuse to play them even looking at my success, might be the BS of 2 that turns them away *evil chuckle* but orks are an "In Your Face" army and coming from blood angels and worldeaters plays right into my style!

Anyways, sorry for the delay in posts

well i had my second game with orks (technically my 3rd but i wont count a game with a blatant cheater) and i have to say i absolutely love orks.

having played strict Death Guard for so long it felt like if i made a slight mistake it would put a wrench in the whole game and i would spend the rest of the time recovering.

with orks i can make mistakes and not have to worry about that mistake the entire game.

today was the second game in the campaign my club is running ( i can post a link to the campaign but i did not take notes for a batrep ), we are playing a pretty straightforward map based game but our "heroes" can get upgrades. my heroes for this campaign are doing quite well as my Wazdakka count-as is now BS 3 and has counter-attack and my warboss is now T7, has counter-attack and a banner that gives +1 attack to any friendly unit within 6".

as much as i am having fun i am starting to wonder if my army is becoming a bit over the top and cheesy, take into mind that the warboss runs with a 5 man nob biker squad...


i'll have to take some pictures of my WIP army.

Brotherman Nurgle, welcome!

Glad things are going well for you.  I started Orks with a map-based campaign too.  If you're playing small maps, be sure to check out burnas... awesome stuff at a necromuda/mordhiem/kill team level.  and yeah, stat buffs for orks gets silly fast... beware sternguard tho :)

Just out of curiosity what are we going to do when we hit the green tide number?

Your campaign sounds like the Battle Company games for Lord of the Rings, that's what me and my late brother usually played. Does GW have a similar system for 40k? Id like that very much.

I might as well mention that as of next weekend, I shall be down in DC for this year's NoVa Open. It's a 2000-point tournament noted for using a swiss-pairings system to get comparative ranking among players with only one player being able to go 8-0 (it's a weekend-event), and is pretty much internet celebrityland for tournament-goers. Expect to run into such folks like Stelek, Chumbalaya, Hulksmash, Jawaballs, and Gav Thorpe. (He's not actually competing though :P)

It's going to be odd playing Orks in this environment, needless to say. I know Dashofpepper was a tournament ace last year (top 8 at least), yet at the same time the counters exist to turn Battlewagons into a scraplot.

Nightwalker, ours had a map.  We had to meet squad minimums (starting with 1 troop slot) and 100 pts.  Xp and gear cost was formulaic.  We added 100 points every week till 1000.  Death was death, so you lost buffed-up units.  There was reinforcement points based on territory held and a base level for the week (in case you got wiped).  Our campaign came down to shooty/burna orks, nobs/manz/choppa orks, sternguard SM, and bloodletters/plaguebearers.  Shooty/burna force took it.  My nob force got 2nd.  Demons got 3rd.  tons of fun.

big rule book for 4th edition to get the rules (p214), or those 2 white dwarf issues, 286 and 287

There is a rules set in the Battle Missions book (not the same but you can talk out the gaps before starting).

Also, the rules for Necromunda are here @ GW.  Easy to adapt.

I myself like story driven campaigns, you can see the last one I did  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=214088.msg2608688#msg2608688)  It was great fun, and definitely worth playing all those games.

The next one I am planning as soon as the rest of the details can be arranged is the Rynns world campaign, you can see that one  HERE  (http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m1860435_RynnsWorldCampaign.pdf) and will be playing that one just as soon as a few final arrangements can be made.

Hope that gives you some ideas for story driven campaigns. I prefer the story driven campaign over the map based campaign, but that's just the way I roll. You may like the logistical challenge of the map based campaign over the story campaign, and that is just as good.

Now for small games, if you have last editions rule book you can use the kill team campaigns they had published there. Or, using the newest version of kill team as written in the Battle Missions supplemental book, adding in the campaign stuff from the main rule book, that ought to make stuff interesting as well.

I don't want to turn this into a long post, so I best stop here, but I could go on and on and on about campaigns, as that is my favorite way to play. Not saying that one off games are less fun, or that tourney play is a higher or lower form of playing, just saying that campaign gaming is the really fun stuff, especially story driven campaigns.

Orks are very addicting,  it is nice to be able to take numbers and not have to worrry about loosing a handful of boyz.  Deathguard are very points heavy per model and if they get spread thin or someone takes out a squad their effectiveness drops a lot.

see you are turning totally green now which is a good thing.

Even so if anyone knows of a similar game, I would greatly appreciate it.

My LGS plays Death Squads.   It utilizes different parts of 40k but has its own rules.   It is very skirmish based where models function individually rather than in full squads.  The rules and rulebook is totally free (and very large download)  In all honesty I read over the rules twice and just think there is way too many rules (as it has actions you can do)  It is a bit more complicated than 40k which can be fun if u like using less model count and more depth.   But you can check it out and see what you think.
http://www.deathsquadsgame.com/ (http://www.deathsquadsgame.com/)

@MagicJuggler:   Sounds like a fun event wish it wasn't so far of a hike or I would probably try to go and show some green support as well.   Best of luck to you though.

Just out of curiosity what are we going to do when we hit the green tide number?

Aside from Skeetergod doing the happy dance I am not really sure.  Maybe we will need to plan some sort of online event as with a green tide I am sure we can go on a massive crusade and disrupt the (online) galaxy.

As far as campaigns go now that we got our Warlord OD back I am sure he is itching for some krumpin and it won't be too far off before we see another campaign.  But I cannot predict the future, I am a warboss not a wierdboy.

Good to see you working on your orks, you are in for a lot of fun, as you can do almost anything and it is still orky. (OK, maybe not Hello Kitty orks, but generally everything else is acceptable) Make sure you put a link to your plog here so we can find it, and we will comment there.

Also, if you need clues, hints, tips, etc. make sure to go through the ork boot kamp in the stickies, lots of good stuff there, including a painting article.

Allrighty then, a week of having withdrawals from not being able to get on the forum has really wrecked my groove. So, so, so, I will let the last update stand as it is, and start cruising the boards looking for teef earning activity.

If you, or any of your fellow orks are out there earning teef, let me know, either by posting it here with a link to the stuff, or by sending me a PM.

Always try to send a link as it just makes my life a little easier, and you may just save a grot or two who wont get kicked while I try to figure out where in the heck you put your stuff.

The updates to the bank account will continue as normal starting next Monday.

Post by: MagicJuggler on September 7, 2011, 10:13:24 AM
It's been chaotic but between another move, I've finally been able to set my computer back up again.

I went 3-1 on my first day at NoVa, then after my 5th game, my army was not able to be fully repaired in time, and I had mentally shut-down ("Forgot to shoot with Lootas. Positioned Warbuggies out of LOS. Screwed up bubblewrap against Wolf Scouts. Etc."). Twas actually my first GT, and so I missed out on a lot of the important bits (Protip: Invest in an Army Tray!).

It was nightmarish at bits, part of it being my army wasn't fully ready prior to the tournament due to a *lot* of personal/life issues hampering my time. Having spoken with the TO beforehand, saying I wished to cancel, he said for me to come anyway. He was a champ to the end, even if I ended up basically forfeiting sleep on the nights before to get enough stuff assembled last-minute and a bleary-eyed proxy-mess on-table.

Despite it all, it was incredibly fun even at the parts where I was keeled over in pain. My opponents were friendly and understanding for the most part, (my 4th game was fairly nightmarish though. I feel like if I were better-prepared for the event, it would've been more expedient). Got to chat with Gav Thorpe about game design theory and "What happened with Chaos/Eldar/life?" Got to meet a lot of infamous folks.

Modelingwise:
-I need to assess damage and repair my army :(
-Now planning to build 2 more Warbuggies, and 2 Wartrukks.
-Buying sheet metal and plywood, and building a custom army tray to make setup between games easier on my part.
-Movement trays for my Boyz. I don't want the normal "square" trays, just because I found that as the game progressed, I was using increasingly intricate formations in my army.

For the record, I ran:
Ghazgkull Thraka
Kustom Forcefield Mek, Bosspole, Eavy Armor, Grot Oiler'

Elites:
7 Lootas
7 Lootas
3 Meganobz, 2 Kombi-Rokkits
-Battlewagon w/ Kannon, Deffrolla, Red Paint Job

Troops
3 Meganobz, 2 Kombi-Rokkits
-Battlewagon w/ Kannon, Deffrolla, Red Paint Job (The original Wagon was going to be converted based off a Russ hull. Due to assorted issues with that, I ended up buying a Battlewagon cockpit and extending it to the front of a Chimera instead the night before. This
17 Shoota Boys, Nob w/ 'Uge Choppa and Bosspole
17 Shoota Boys, Nob w/ 'Uge Choppa and Bosspole
13 Grots, Slaver

Fast Attack
2 Warbuggies w/ Rokkits
2 Warbuggies w/ Rokkits (the third
2 Deffkoptas, one Buzzsaw (the second kopta was a stand-in).

Heavy Support:
3 Kannons (I had leftover tank turrets and large bases. Basically, instead of artillery pieces one would limber around, I basically had several emplaced turrets. I like this outcome and will convert them up further).
3 Killa Kans w/ Kustom Mega Blastas.
3 Killa Kans w/ Kustom Mega Blastas.

My first opponent ran:
Kharn
Daemon Prince of Nurgle with Warptime, Wings
Summoned Greater Daemon

Unit of 10 Plague Marines with 2 Meltaguns, Champion with Fist, Icon
Unit of 10 Plague Marines with 2 Meltaguns, Champion with Fist, Icon
Unit of 10 Khorne Berserkers, Champion with Fist, Icon
Unit of Summoned Lesser Daemons

2 Obliterators
2 Obliterators
Chaos Land Raider

Tied on objectives, won on quarters.

Second opponent ran:
Sanguinor
Librarian w/ Jump Pack, Blood Lance, Shield of Sanguinius
Blinged out Honor Guard
Sanguinary Priest
4 units of 10 Assault Marines,
Blinged out Vanguard unit.

Won *that* game 1497 VP to 323 VP due to a mix of MSU multi-assaulting of units, a *really* well-timed Ghaz charge which took out half of his Assault Marines (and the Power Fists being forced to allocate their attacks onto him, leaving my MANZ fairly free to punch the living crap out of the Bloodbloods), and a well-placed Deffrolla tank-shocking the Sanguinor in a manner that he got pushed into range for one of my Kan units to assault him. This basically locked Goldenboy out of the fight for the rest of the game.

Third game was me winning by idiotic luck, barely by KP. (Dawn of War Deployment, incidentally). The guy ran:
3 Haemonculi, 2 w/ Liquifiers, 1 w/ Shattershard

3 units of 3 Trueborn, 3 Blasters, Venom w/ Dual Splinter Cannons
3 units of 5 Warriors, Blaster, Venom w/ Dual Splinter Cannons
3 units of 9 Wyches, Haywire Grenades, Hekatrix w/ Agonizer, Raider w/ Flickerfields and Enhanced Aethersails.
3 Ravagers
Just to make it *more* fun, he rolled a 6 for his Combat Drugs, so his Wyches all started off with 2 Tokens (basically, most melee attacks bounce off them and they hit like Orks on the charge).

Fourth game was against a Ghaz tide, and *that* game had a fair bit of a mess pre-game just because I mentioned my army was "NOT FINISHED" (I had basically forfeited my appearance score), and pre-game I was subject to a random spot check of my army. This screwed me over time-wise, and by then I was mentally making mistakes I shouldn't have...like deploying my Lootas LOS-blocked by my Kannons. Then Snikrot escorted a Bike Boss behind my lines and there went most of my plan. After that, I called it. I *really* feel that were I better-prepared as a player, things could have gone very differently.

His list btw was:
HQ:
Ghazgkull Thraka
Warboss on Bike, w/ Power Klaw, Cybork Body

Elites:
Snikrot's Kommandos, Big Shoota

Troops
4 units of 30 Shootaboyz, 3 Rokkit Launchas, Nob w/ Bosspole and Power Klaw.
Unit of 20 Grots

Fast Attack:
3 units of 2 Rokkit Warbuggies

Heavy Support:
2 Looted Wagons w/ Boomguns

Being Spearhead, he deployed 2 mobs in the far-right corner, spread out to camp objectives and he reserved everything else. Ghaz started on-table, and the Bike Boss came in with Snikrot's Kommandos.

My *fifth* game was against a judge as I had overslept. The lack of prior sleep caught up to me (and was still doing a horrid number). The guy ran an "Ambush" Space Wolf list based heavily off last year's list by Tony Kopach (Tony won again this year, incidentally).

Njal Stormcaller
4 Wolf Guard w/ Combi-Meltas, 2 w/ Combi-Meltas and Fists (The Fist/Combimeltas joined the Scouts. The rest joined the Hunters).
2 units of 5 Wolf Scouts, Meltaguns
4 units of 8 Grey Hunters, Meltagun, Wolf Standard, Rhino
2 units of 5 Grey Hunters, Flamer, Razorback w/ TL Lascannon

3 units of Long Fangs, each with 4 Missile Launchers.
This is a "type" of army I've practiced against before. Had my setup ready...then he seized the initiative. I lose a Battlewagon and my Deffkoptas from the getgo. From there, I'm basically running my Buggies to screen against Wolf Scouts entering from behind, but mess up my model spacing. My Lootas manage to snipe one Wolf Scout unit off the table...I lost my Kannons after an assault, counterassaulted with Boyz, spaced badly and lost my Lootas to the *next* Wolf Scout unit (I had forgotten to, you know, *shoot* with my Loota in the turn before), and after suiciding a Meganob unit to kill some more Fangs, and him reserving some additional Rhinos to basically tankshock me off objectives, we called it.

It was one of *those* games that I really felt was more me screwing up as a player rather than being a list-matchup issue, to be honest. After that game, I said I would be back next year, mentioned my desire to withdraw from the tournament because between my being at a state of "oh god, can't play anymore," my army being a proxy repair-nightmare, I really felt playing further would be doing everyone else a dissservice. I thanked him for the game, asked for general advice, and for the most part things were rather helpful. One thing he did (and several others) mention was that despite it all, going 3-1 with Orks on a first tournament is still something not everyone does.

That's that mostly. Planned army update will be in a separate thread.

Things I have on my plate are:
Warboss in Doomwheel
Monster Truck Battlewagon
3 rokkit buggies that look similar to Grampa's Roadster from the Munsters
 to name just a few, and I'll be doing walk throughs on them all and some painting walk throughs as well, so be expecting to some wild stuff coming out of my little workshop in the near future  8)

Hey, good question, why don't you start a thread with the question as the title? rather than have a tactics discussion in this thread I think you would get a lot more info/replies if that was its own topic. 

The WoTW thread is more for discussing what is going on in the ork world, with a bit of randomness thrown in, and of course some official business as well.

I think you would get more out of having it as its own thread.

Just my two teef.

As for all the promotions, GOOD STUFF!!
Now, if any of you would like to get some wargear listed next to your name, reread the bank account post on how to do that and send me a PM, I will hook up with Angel of Death 007 and we will discuss your gear purchase,  get it listed next to your name, and deduct the cost from your account.

Congrats to all for the promotions, you all did good stuff to earn it.

Congrats to the winners of the Boss Pole Competition, good stuff all round.

The teef for the August Scrapyard have not been calculated yet, I guess Dropfall needs to go line up some grots so he can use their toes to count that high.  ;)

As always, if I missed anyone's teef earning activity, just send me a PM or post a link to your work here, and I will get the bank account updated tootie sweetie.

Needed a whole mob of grots to calculate Agtha Mor's teef for these 8 Fightabombas (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=216316.msg2641051#msg2641051) for which he gets 144 Teef.

For Skeetergods Ghost Biker (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=216316.msg2639387#msg2639387) he gets 12 Teef, and for his Tank (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=216316.msg2640710#msg2640710) he gets 8 Teef.

AOD for his Nob Bikers (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=216316.msg2641115#msg2641115) gets 7 Teef, and for the Kustom Dread he gets... well 1 Toof; it pays more to finish something in the same month you start it.

Hi Everyone,  I used to play 40k about 6/7 ish years ago. I mostly played eldar then, with a bit of orks on the side, since my recent return to the game, green is the only way to go. I would like to join WotW. I should just make a post in the faces of wagggh thread?

Welcome to the Waagh, I am sure Angel of Death 007 will be around shortly to add your name to the roster. If you read the first page you will find the things you need to do. While you are there make sure to read the FAQ and then in case you didn't see the stickies above make sure you go to the Boot Camp here at THIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=130950.0)

Your name has been added to the bank account, you will see it there on the next update (Mondays). Again; Welcome to the green side

Welcome, guys and do check out the boot camp thread and the first page of this thread they will answer a good portion of your questions, but don't think you can't ask a quest, simply start a thread, we move on ironing out our yoofs faster than even the eldar can see... might be an overstatement but you get the gist

Wow what a massive response over the last few days.   Looks like the warbosses must have been out recruiting.   Now lets see if you boyz can earn your t-shirts.   Welcome to being a prospect:  Respekt, Koval Archmagos Errant, Galadian122, and Admiral Dred.   

We have a very large group of ork players who have a combined experience in about everything orky so feel free to ask if you have any questions.  The first page of this post explains quite a bit and also has some knowledgable links.   Welcome aboard.

I also wanna say great job to all those who entered the Boss Pole competition.  The entries were wrote very well and I enjoyed reading them all.  I also added a section to the Ork Fiction main page to showcase your Boss Pole fiction.   

As always if there is anything you want to see on the main page that might have been left out feel free to send me a PM (please include a link) and a description of what you would like to add or where you would like to add it (if it is an article or a post).  I will review it and believe it or not I do edit the main page from time to time.  ::)

Welcome to the Green Side Koval Archmagos Errant, Galadian122, and Admiral Dred.   

Your names have been added to the bank account, and you will see them there on the next update (Mondays).

Good to see you all join the waagh, now, in case I haven't mentioned it to you yet, I am a full fledged card carrying member of the Kult (of speed) and may or may not try to prothelize from time to time. So if you are asking for army building advice I might just suggest getting trucks, and more trucks, and some buggies too. But that is just me, if you feel you might want to play a different build then go for it and ignore the speed freak behind the curtain.

For a list of lists check out  The Thread of Lists (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=213515.0) that I started a while back but it got neglected and so is many pages back. Check it out and see what kind of army you are going to play, and if you can't decide, I suggest speed freaks.

*shifty eyes*
Things seem quiet... too quiet...
*Shoota goes off*

The leaders of the WotW have some rather secretive plans in the works, and Orktober is just around the corner.  So please get ready for a couple crazy events to come down the pipe next month.  Get your armies ready, and gather your forces.  I won't reveal whats going on yet, and neither will AoD, Skeetergod, or DropFall, but trust me, Orktober will be a month to remember with more than a few surprises.  Keep your eyes open for further intel.

Waaagh on

Post Script: for those who don't know me, I'm the absent minded Warlord whose gotten a little too off his rocker in the past several months while AoD, Skeetergod, and DropFall have been running the show.

In the end Thraka simply broke the landing pad with his bare klaw and proceeded to kill the Crisis with righteous orky fury!  That was a nice highlight.

So I dug around my parents attic looking for my old Orks. I bought them way back when around the Eye of Terror campaign and never actually played them due to them having the oldest and crappiest codex at the time.  :P


I'll order the new Dex soon after I finish painting all these boys... and well... you know... building them.


So far:
60 slugga boyz
old Nobz metal box set
a handful of burna boyz
a bunch of ork boys with big shootas
Warboss in eavy armor
5 old killa kans


I've a bunch of old Space Marine tanks from when I started on Black Templars back in like 98 or so. Time to convert my old land raiders into battlewagons.
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread

Before you convert those landraiders, you should know the new codex has rules for looted vehicles...

Post by: OD from TV on September 25, 2011, 06:51:49 AM
Before you convert those landraiders, you should know the new codex has rules for looted vehicles...

Lets see here... Looted Wagons (typically made from the smaller range of vehicles like Rhinos and Chimeras) or Battlewagon?  Yeah, I have to agree with Galadian122's original statement of turning it into a Battlewagon.  I'm not saying that the Looted Wagon is useless, but a Battlewagon is far superior, not to mention how prior to the release of the official Battlewagon model (which I still personally think is a horrible kit) 90% of all Battlewagons had a Land Raider as a basis for konversion.

In the event that you do consider making the Land Raider into a Looted Wagon (which I wouldn't do, but it is your choice after all) be sure to check here, the Looted Wagon Tactics thread (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=217291.0) which is only a few days old.

Indeed we have.  Things are brewin for Orktober, and I don't just mean in a Witch's cauldron.  While the details of the Orktober festivities are still under wraps, there is a certain classified Imperial document which has fallen thru the cracks which does shed some light on an event which I will be formally announced in a day or two, consider this some teaser fluff for an official Orktober event...

**********************************************************************************
Imperial Records
To: Segmentum Tempestus Strategic Command
From: Inquisitor Dietrich Avery
Subject: Waaagh Gitbruza, Roirk System
Message Format: Telepathic
Received: 5428752M39
Thought for the Day: A moment of laxity spawns a lifetime of heresy

At the moment it would appear that you've overestimated the forces of Waaagh Gitbruza.  Unlike the original reports of the Ork Battlefleet there appeared to be no command ship (known to our forces as the Hammer Class BattleKrooza, Gitbruza's Wrath), and as a result the Ork horde seemed even more disorganized than normal.

Emperor knows what happened to the BattleKrooza, but the Ork fleet surely would have exacted more damage on our own fleet were the ship present in the battle.  Upon the Ork ships landing on Roirk Prime our recon teams noted several of the larger Orks (designated as Nobz) doing battle with each other.  This indicates that Gitbruza has likely been killed, hopefully along with his Krooza which for too long as been a thorn in the side of the Roirk System.

Due to the disarray of the Ork forces along with their own infighting, the local PDF should suffice in exterminating these Orks.  Nevertheless Roirk Prime's noted Primaris Psycher Nathan Cobb has contacted me with repeated visions of Gitbruza's return, which would undoubtedly double the Ork's resolve.  While loathe to accept the ramblings of a psycher, it is my duty to ask that if Gitbruza's Wrath is seen by any Imperial Forces that it is exterminated immediately before it can rejoin the forces in the Roirk System, and unite the disparate forces there.

Oi!  Just FYI in case you'ze boyz ain't seen it yet, one of the Orktober celebrations is now beginning, the Fixin da Krooza campaign (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=217535.0)!  Sign ups are open NOW and the first mission is only days away from being released.  Get ready for the Waaagh boyz, cause Gitbruza needs your help to get his ship back up and running so he can Krump dem humies in the Roirk System.

If things go well you can expect other future Ork campaigns, not to mention future possible Forum v. Forum matches like last year's Knuckles on Necrodermis campaign.  So sharpen those teef, load your shoota, and sign up (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=217535.0) for what will undoubtedly be a great Orky campaign!

bad jokes and obscure 2nd edition references aside, welcome.  If you are interested in participating in the Fixin the Krooza campaign (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=217535.msg2646900#msg2646900) then you should (along with everyone else interested) post your intentions in the campaign thread.  At the moment the first mission is less than 40 hours away from being released, and sign ups close in @ a week, so if you're interested, now is the time.

Log welcome aboard you have been entered into our probationary period.   

So with a campaign on the horizen and with all our promotions last month,  I think it is time for all you members to show your bosses what you are made of.   

I wanna see who is the greenest ork and who are just the weedy gitz of the WotW.   

so I bring you...

Go Big or Go Home Competition

I got a panel of celebrity judges and all.   This competition is easy enough that EVERY ork should be able to atleast enter.   

And as such I also put up
AoD's Challange

Prove once and for all who is the greenest or be forever remembered as the Weedy Git who couldn't participate.

.... it isn't called the Go Big or Go Home event for nothiing

It's time to show the galaxy what it is to be green...

I am in and am going to see if I can win that Battle Wagon piece of war gear to go next to my name. (http://i666.photobucket.com/albums/vv27/Ralston1/evilsmiley-1.jpg)

Athaga would be incredible in the Go Big or Go Home comp, its a lot like the SBO, except only 1 model (or two if you enter in both categories) there's judges, and prizes.  Athaga if you can find the time in your schedule to compete I'd love to see what you bring to the table.

On a different note, what with it being officially Orktober and all, I think I'll go a tad bit crazy now, and offer a small challenge.  Namely I'll give an extra 2 teef to anyone that plays (and reports the outcome) of mission one of Fixin Da Krooza (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=217535.msg2646900#msg2646900) in the next 24 hours.

If you're not signed up yet, there's still time to join in the festivities, just let me know (preferably by posting in the campaign thread)

Clock's ticking boyz

Welcome aboard, CheesyRobMan, it is always nice to get some veteran ork players.  Recently we have drawn in a few long time ork players that felt the urge to join the green side.  The WotW is definately the place for orks, and with it being Orktober there really is no better time to join.

We are up to 16 in the AoD's Challange.  Time to start getting after your fellow boyz and get them into the competition.   Between the "Go Big or Go Home Competition" and the "Fixin the Krooza Campaign".  There is no reason why every ork shouldn't be involved in something.

We are only two days into each event and you have the whole month, I urge you all to come and join in the fun.

The  Bank Account (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701) is updated.

We have two more members, we are getting closer and closer to the Green Tide. (http://i666.photobucket.com/albums/vv27/Ralston1/Greensmiley.jpg)

Some good stuff going on here, and more good stuff with all the Orktober activites currently running. There should be bags of teef getting handed out at the end of the month.

As always, if I missed anything just let me know and I will get your account credited tootie sweetie. (For all you new orks, that is French for "Right Quick")  ;D

I'd like to propose that we give more teef for battle reports...  Having written a bunch of them and added graphics, i can say it is very time consuming and should be worth some more teef... 

I propose we create a tiered system for awarding teef for battle reports...  Something like...

Basic decription of a battle...... 2 teef
Detailed description........ .........+2 teef
Pics and/or graphics........... ......+2 teef

What do you guys think?

That seems reasonable to me, but one alteration. I think pictures should only be +1, it's easy to press a button. But I do agree there should be a quality modifier.

The bosses will consider your proposal adamscurr.  As for you posting a lot of batreps there aren't any that I'm seeing in the WotW Bat Rep section, did you post links to the batreps and they didn't get added to the section (if so AoD is running behind on updating the main thread, although he's really on the ball with that responsibility, so if he has it was most likely a mistake).

As for teef, remember that teef are not given, they're earned for going above and beyond the standard poster.  It's an incentive for being an excellent poster, as well as something that we (the heads of the WotW) are giving back to the community.  Lord knows that before we founded the WotW Skeetergod wasn't spending time updating the rosters each week.  That's a LOT of effort and work, and it requires him to be practically omnipresent over the forum.

If you are interested in earning more teef than normal for BatReps, might I suggest the Fixin Da Krooza campaign.  I know it probably sounds like me shamelessly pluggin an event that I'm running, but in that you earn 5 teef per bat rep instead of the current standard faire (just because I wanted to be nice and give out gobs of teef).

Like I said, your proposal will be discussed.  But do keep in mind that we gave it a flat price because then we don't have someone asking why they didn't get a bonus for a "detailed description".

Peace

Post by: SKEETERGOD on October 5, 2011, 08:13:33 AM
You did it right, posting a batrep on the batrep forum and then linking it here is the correct way to do it. The only exception is when we are having a contest thread like we are this month with the kruiser campaign, and then you post the link in that thread.

I do enjoy reading your batreps, and I believe I have commented on them too. I have also done a few other batreps including a campaign, and I hope you all enjoyed reading it.

For those who may have missed it, you can find the Wolf Time thread link in the first page of this thread, where AoD only lists batreps that are noteworthy (otherwise it would use up all his space for running the WoTW).

Now all of you don't go ballistic here, this is meant as an advertisement to see if you can create a batrep that is noteworthy enough to get listed on the first page of this thread, and not a reason to send your mad doc assassin after me.

My Mad Dok roams with my ard boyz and they assassinate everything and then take a break to chase after butterflies. 

Skeet hit it right on the nose.  Space is really the issue more so than anything.  I would love to have 70-100 battle report links listed but it would take up a lot of space and be very hard to organize. The way it is done now seems to be very functional.

On a side note:  If you have an extended campaign you participate in or a really great battle report that you feel would be a great teaching tool, send me a PM with the link and please include what you want the link to be called, it will be reviewed if you want it posted in the actual battle report section.

BTW...  I wasn't trying to start a stink or anything, or say I deserve more teef for previous bat reps...  I think you guys might have misunderstood me...  I just wanted to suggest we change our policy on teef since it takes so long to write a post a bat rep!  ;D

The Bank Account  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701) is updated. Some good stuff, we need more good stuff.

Well the prize for a batrep has been raised to 5 teef. It would take too much work to make a graded amount of teef. So a decent batrep will get the full amount of teef, while substandard or psudo batreps will get nothing. For example if I post a mini batrep that just highlights the activities of the battle then I don't expect any teef, but if I take the time and trouble to post a blow by blow, move by move description, and add some pictures to sorta increase the enjoyment of the reader then I would expect to earn some teef.

The "good" batrep is highly subjective, for example a new person writes up their latest battle, and posts it in the batrep forum, but doesn't put in enough detail or any graphics or pictures you have to give them something for the effort, and leave some feed back for improvement on future batreps.

I personally enjoy pictures of models, as I enjoy looking at painted models and how others have created their army. I like the graphics some people use, but I like pictures better. So, am I going to take the time to grade a batrep and penalize it for no pictures, or award less because it has graphics instead of pictures?  No, it is easier to just give 5 teef to those who do a batrep, and for those who try to submit substandard batreps, I am sure the forum would beat me to the punch on giving "constructive criticism".

@Adamscurr, Now the one you just posted, since it is part of the Orktober campaign won't get any teef until the campaign is concluded and OD from TV posts a list of who earned what.

As for other members who do batreps, make sure to post the link to it here so that I can find it, and yes; only ork batreps earn teef. Members of the WoTW who post batreps about other races do not earn teef for that.

Silly aliens, teef are for orks.

As always, if I missed any teef earning activity, just send me a PM (with a link) and I will get the account updated tooty sweety.

Post by: adamscurr on October 11, 2011, 03:12:08 PM
Great...  And you'll be happy to know that my latest BatRep includes many pics... lol

I'm glad you are increasing the teef though...  It does take some time and effort to make good battle reports, and I think it is a good plan to reward people for the effort!

Welcome to the Green Side! (http://i666.photobucket.com/albums/vv27/Ralston1/Greensmiley.jpg)

Your name has been added to the bank account, you will see it there on the next update. Now, in the event that you didn't look at the stickies above, you should go to Boot Camp here at THIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=130950.0)
Make sure to read the first page of this thread, as it has all the rules and the all important FAQ.

You are right, the orks are the most lootingest group around, and making each model unique is just part of the fun, converting vehicles (and painting them red) is also a fantastic endeavor that will be never ending and rewarding at the same time. I see it is too late to warn you that orks are addictive, so just go with and enjoy the addiction.  ;D

Again, welcome to the WoTW, may you have many good krumping days.

Long time lurker, occassional poster, but Orks have become my go-to-army in 40k over the last couple of years; not least because of all the konversion possibilities, and I've had a lot of fun modelling a bunch of stuff, even if a lot of it remains partially complete. Now I need some motivation to finish and paint them all, so I thought I'd join up to the WotW, as posting progress has helped before :)

I thought I might start by finishing modelling (and painting!) my big mek, if it's ok to enter the current competition at this stage? I don't have any super-heavy, but I like the idea of starting with a big mek, who can then build the rest of my army, fluff-wise ;) If not, I'll post some pics somewhere anyway.

Your name has been added to the bank account, you will see it there on the next update (which happens on Mondays).

Now, in the event that you didn't look at the stickies above, you should go to Boot Camp here at THIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=130950.0)

After all that go to  Go Big or Go Home (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=217570.0) and post your desire to enter your big mek there, it Angel of Death 007 accepts you then go for it. Once you start getting some pictures of your stuff, make sure to make a Faces of The Waagh entry so we can see some of your army.

Glad to have you with us, and have a green day  ;D

Question about the faces thread, have we decided to make it where we can post more pics or do a new post to add more pics or what? I know I wanna add more pics but don't wanna break the rules (again)  :P

@SKEETERGOD where did you get the ork emocons?
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: SKEETERGOD on October 15, 2011, 08:34:34 AM
For the faces of the waagh thread you get one post, fill it up as you see fit. If you are going to add more pictures try to make them the thumbnails so that the page will load smoothly for all who browse these forums. When your one post reaches it's size limit then you have to delete old stuff to make room for the new stuff. There can only be one, if you try to make a duplicate or second post then you enter into the "wrath of the mods" territory.... Don't go there!

As an example; check out  Moc065's post  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=159353.msg2420074#msg2420074) and  My post  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=159353.msg2426413#msg2426413) this is how you should do it to make it acceptable. Since the mods do a good job of policing the forums there are no examples (that I could find) of how not to do it.

For the ork emoticons I made them myself as I could not find a green smiley anywhere on this forum, especially the evil green smiley (that you see in my signature box) Moc065 gave me a lot of help getting them, and getting them to work.

As always, if I missed anybody's teef earning activity, send me a PM or post it here, and I will get your account credited tootie sweetie.

On a side note, don't forget you can use those teef to buy equipment, we have an awful lot of orks running around being weaponless, just look at your name in the members area, if there is no equipment next to your name, then you are just walking around with just your green skin and fingernails.

For those of you who don't have enough teef to buy a choppa or slugga, then it is time for you to get out of the squig pen and earn some teef. For those who do have some teef, don't you think its time to get some kit?

That is all...

Yes, welcome aboard. Good looking boyz there, looking forward to seeing more, nice clean lines on them. Same Zog for me too, been a hectic month for me, life just kept rearing it's ugly head and I couldn't get away to do anything fun. Though I did start building a Wazdakka from a link I found here, don't remember who posted it but if they come forth I'll give them full credit for the find and it's a damn nice build to boot. I won't do a walk through on this one as it's not my build it's a copy but will post progress pics if you like. I'm in the process of getting just the bits I need for the warboss in doomwheel bike for a conversion I saw and will post a walk through on that has the pic I saw and everything I searched didn't have any in any way shape or form. I also have plans of doing a Ban Moon Painting walk through as well, along with some of the weathering techniques I've picked up in my travels if anyone's interested in that stuff.

So in the next coming weeks expect to see more of the Rayvn as I've settled the storm at home and life and can get back to having fun again. Skeet knows of some of the crap I've been dealing with as I've grovelled at his feet a while ago, but that's neither here or there, it's gonna be fun "convurten" ride from here! WOOT!

I agree Orktober was an insanely busy month, I had to forgo a lot of sleep to get everything done this month, and not just batreps, model building, and honey dew list.

So everyone just a heads up, there will be a saint snick contest in December, so you had all best gear up for that one. It might allow some of those weedy gits a chance to de-gitify themselves, not to mention someone has to beat Dropfall, I am afraid that another win would make his head so big he would have to get a separate transport for it.  ;D
( seeing a vision of two battle wagons in a train; "whats that?" "Oh, that's Dropfall, the front BW is his body and the back BW with the crane is for his head") LOLing out loud....
 
AAAAny way, good work to all those who participated in the events this month, the toof count should be fairly staggering, and will be posted in the Bank Account as soon as I get the final counts.

You are very welcome.  I am glad it got such a high turn out.  I was amazed at the amount of heavy hitters and the quality of work that came out.   OD did an amazing job at coordinating and coming up with scenarios for the campaign as well.   

Both events had a massive amount of views.  I think we might have made the other POC's / COC's green with envy. 

Thanks again to everyone who participated.  We will soon learn the outcome of the events and it will be posted.    Don't forget we will be doing a Peoples Choice vote for the Light Weights and Heavy Hitters categories, so even if you didn't get to participate makes sure to watch for it and vote for your favorite models.

Echoing the sentiments above, I just want to thank the bosses for all the work they put into the orktober. Turns out that I picked the very best time to join the green team, I had a lot of fun!

Third Place: OD from TV's Mek

Not like I'm going to argue too much, but I do believe that you're mistaken AoD.  According to the totals from Lomandalis:
Log's Warboss (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=217570.msg2653351#msg2653351), although missing being tied for second by half a point, claims the third place in this.
Personally I'd use that model as a Dread, what with him being the size of an Avatar, but it's one awesome kustom job if you ask me.

*sigh* real life is calling.  Back to the grindstone.

Peace

Also how do you post pictures in a post. I have looked through the forum and can't find anything.

Upload your photos to a picture site like Photobucket, and then to put them into your posts as clickable thumbnails, the formatting is as follows (with props to SKEETERGOD who showed me how to do this):

[ url=www.photo.com/myphoto1.jpg ][ IMG ] www.photo.com/th_myphoto1.jpg (http://www.photo.com/th_myphoto1.jpg) [ /img ][ /url ]

You need to add "th_" to the start of the actual filename in the IMG tags, but not in the URL tags. Don't worry about renaming the photo, this is just telling the computer that you want a thumbnail. And obviously I've typed it with extra spaces so you can see what's going on, you don't need these for your actual pictures.

The best way to check if anything isn't working is to use the Preview button when you've finished your post, and check that everything's looking ok.

Yes I put up some links in the ork newbie section to help out.

I also want to congradulate Baron Wastelands, Zachay2000, and twistedmouth on becoming full WotW members.  They have made it thru their probationary time and passed with flying colors.   Here is your t-shirt now it is time to krump in the name of the WotW......    WAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHH

The annual Saint Snik modeling competition will up on the 1st of December.
I am doing the happy dance, Wooot!!  ;D(good thing too, as its a bit chilly out today, so needed some exercise to warm up)

Anyways, the Bank Account is updated,  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701) Hmmm, a bit of a quiet week, must have been all the free food...
Congrats to the newest boys who get the (p) removed from their name and are now full members, good stuff!
As always if I missed anybody, or any thing, just let me know and I will get the account updated tootie sweetie.

**Now for a different note: I am going to spend some of my teef and purchase a piece of wargear. If you look  Here  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571697#msg2571697) you will see I have a bike, a burna, and an attack squig. Now I need a big choppa for killing those oh so pesky dreadnoughts.
Codex cost for a big choppa is 5, so that means it is going to cost me 10 teef for that big choppa.
I also need a boss pole, as I might attract a mob that will follow me around, therefore another 5/10.
That is a big choppa and a boss pole for 20 teef.

So, I now get Angel of Death 007 to look at this post, and he will add the war gear to my name in the WoTW page, and I will deduct 20 teef from my account.

For those of you who are running around naked, you just ain't a propa ork without some kit, so if you have some teef, get some kit, if you don't have teef then do something that will earn you some teef, and get some kit.  8)

On a side note, I see some of us are getting some kit, that is good stuff! We must arm ourselves now, so that when we wage waagh we have something we can make noise with, so the rest of you get some kit, other wise the grots will be able to make more noise than you.

A slow week again, hmmm, must have been too much free food, or you all have expired due to eating spoiled leftovers  :)

I expect to see some good stuff from the Saint Snick competition

The clock is ticking for the Saint Snick competition, so you all needs to get on it, and get those models done. I have been working 65 hour weeks for the last three weeks, but now that the holiday is over my work hours will go back to normal and I will be able to cruise around on these forums more, like I was before my two co-workers quit.

The good news is that with all that overtime pay, I see stompas and skull hammers in my future  8)

Hi all,

Much to my delight, I have recently acquired an Ork army and a camera !

 I would like to apply for WotW  ;D

I think the WotW is a fantastic idea and will encourage me to become more active at home ( modeling and painting ) and online as well ( posting pics/ battle reports and army lists ).

My aim is to have a customized army where even standard ork boyz will have their own flair !

I have quite a few FW models and due to the sheer amount of models I have, I will be doing models up for a standard 2k list before I start touching things like Stompas and super heavies :D

I even tested some weathering techniques on some Nurgle rhinos I did up as an experiment. You can see them here: http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=219206.0 (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=219206.0)

Welcome to the Green Side Daoshi, you will find that this is the best Ork forum on the www. Your name has already been added to the bank account, Angel of Death 007 should be along shortly to add your name to the roster. You can see the bank account at the link listed below

Please make sure to check out the first page of this thread, as it has the all important FAQ, not the GW version, but actual frequently asked questions that we have found answers for. Then while you are at it, you should go to Boot Camp here atTHIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=130950.0)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

On a different note, the Bank Account is updated, you can find it  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701)

We are getting close to a green tide, now we just have to round up the deserters and get them stuck back in so that we can wage waagh against them other forums that think they smell so pretty.

As always, if I missed any body, or any thing that was some toof earning activity, let me know and I will get your account credited tootie sweetie (for you new orks, that's french for "right quick"). ;D

What's happening with the saint snik contest. The official rules for it says it ended on the 29th but it didn't really seem like enough people participated in it (although someone at my local shop is interested in buying my shook attack Santa).

I think Dropfall is still fighting the rebel grots from the last contest where he took all their toes so he could count higher. I heard they rebelled and are holding him hostage until he gives them cybork toes. We might have to send a rescue (looting) mission to his mek workshop and liberate him from the grots (as well as his teef).  ;D

On a serious note I will try to get ahold of him and see if he just overslept, or really does need rescue.

@Dioshi, I read the report and left a comment on that thread for you, Good Stuff  ;D

@CheeseyRobMan, that is a sweet looking army, I would hate to have to face it with any other army besides my speed freaks. (You know, orks never lose  ;) ) That is some good stuff. I will see what I can do to get you some favoritism teef, As AOD is a serious kan wall player, I am sure he is drooling at these pictures. I know he was working on just such a build with his custom meka dread.

Good Stuff, and a great day to be an ork.

@Dioshi, welcome aboard, it looks as though you hit the ground running, great battle reports and you are a FW guy so that is always a plus in my book.

@Cheesey RobMan:  Freaking beautiful.    It must strike terror in your opponents just seeing all those walkers.   I wish I could get inspired to finish my mega dread.   I have slowed up after painting every month for the last year.   I took a month off.  I bet Skeetergod's knees started to shake at the sight of another dread bash type army.   *evil laugh*.

The response from my opponent the first time I put the army down on the table (half painted at 1500pts) was "oh, f***..."   :D

You want inspiration? There it is!  ;)  It would be great to have two proper dread mobs around here...

Some good stuff, and I see everyone is returning from their winter holiday adventure, so the board is waking up. Figures the weekend I have to go away and there is lots of posting going on... ::)

@CheeseyRobMan, did you put the pictures of your dread mob in your Faces of The Waagh post? (I didn't see them there last time I looked).

Now that AOD has finally digested his holiday meal and woke up from his nap, I will see about those favoritism teef for your dread bash.

Yes, in FebuWAAAGHry we always have something going on. You will see some stirrings about this a little later in the month (tries to look sneaky, Hint; we will have to build something and play some games)

Damn SKEETERGOD, you leave us in such suspense, I think it is great to have these sorts of competitions and community involvement here. Sign me up! Any way we can start before Febuwaaaaaaaghry? The Mek inside me is itching to tinker with da boyz !

OK, starting to feel some peer pressure here...

I will get with the other bosses and see if we can start the phase 1 a bit earlier.
(However I can hint that you will need about 2k worth of stuff near the end of Febuwaaghry, so if your army isn't quite that big yet you might want to get started on building it now.)

Oh yes all my holiday food is well digested.  I had the Dok reconnect my brain pan.  I licked a light socket (gives me my shocking personality) and well you will see what happened soon enough....   LOL.   I think I might have even made Skeetergod roll off his chair.  I just know I would love to have seen his face when I sent him that PM.

I am currently still building my army, should I hold off on some units? I think I still have a lot of boyz to convert up still. Perhaps we should have an Ork board organised Monthly Konversion Komp not unlike the painting one where you vow to unleash your inner Mek?

Quite the opposite, build your army up to 2000 points (or more) now, that way you will have what you need for the Febuwaaghry campaign. A good ork general always needs more orks, so go get more orks.

Nope keep building.   The event is going to center toward a "single" model (LOL in all aspects of the word)

as far as an ork board montly konversion komp.   We kinda did that, it was called The Scrapyard Buildoff.   It worked out well but got a bit out of control and away from the path it was intended to initially go.   (got overly abused a bit) 

We have discussed monthly events before, but between organizing, judging, and keeping activity high, it is a very hard scale to balance.  "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail".  Which with run-on events easily happens.   Luckily most of our events are planned out a month or more prior to being launched.  This allows us to figure out what all we need, run it by the council, and try to smooth out any potential rough spots.   For orks you would be surprised just how much planning we do.   There is a lot that goes on behind the curtain so to say.  Your bosses all work very hard behind the scenes.   We constantly bounce ideas off of each other (and off the wall). 

We learn as we go, and from our past adventures we have learned a lot about what does and does not work.   Luckily we have a very motivated council backed up by very motivated members.  This all adds to having some great events and experiences.   

Don't worry, the bosses always have something in the works.   As far as what we cooked up, well you will just have to wait and see.   We almost got all the details ironed out.   I think even sooner than myself or Skeetergod intended initially.

O well. We are a very fortunate group of orks, probably the only ones on the web with such a dedicated group of bosses. Even a few dedicated boyz. Makes you want to "Waaagh!" ;)

Classic orks ! I do have a soft spot for OOP models, they had a lot more flair and character way back when. I am jealous of your new battlewagon. The only one I have is one I got in a trade, it is built all funny and undercoated BLACK  :o ( I use white undercoat for the colours to show better ). It is good that you found a use for your metal Deff Dread now  ;)

As for the Febuwaaghry stuff coming up, pick yourself an HQ unit, it can be a boss, a named character, a big mek, or even a meka dread, anything that the orks can choose as an HQ (even from IA). This will be your boss for all the games in Febuwaaghry. If you choose to build a new one, go for it and take pictures.

This is just to give you all a head start. DO NOT post your entries in this thread. I will start a thread for the "boss" entry later this week (just to keep you chomping at the bit), so wait for it.

For those of you who have been hibernating, it is time to get stuck in. The official WoTW event has started, Take a picture of your boss and sign up for the krumping... NOW!

As a special offer of ork goodness, anyone who can post a batrep by this Friday (or sooner) featuring the krumping of the Ground Hog before he can see his shadow, I will award a bounty of TEN teef. You will have to design your own scenario, but it has to have the ground hog, and you have to smack him down before it sees its shadow. Any takers?

Wow you gotta mess with Phil huh?   I was born and raised only a half hour from Phil's place and it was a highly celebrated event up in PA.   Phil is the perfect example of an angry squig and you best watch out angering that squig.   I would love to see the model that represents him.

Welcome to the Green Side

Your name has been added to the bank account and you will see it there on the next update (Mondays)

Now, in the event that you didn't look at the stickies above, you should go to Boot Camp here atTHIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=130950.0)

A warning here; Orks are addictive, it doesn't take much and soon all you can think about are your orks, what to get next, how to model that next vehicle, remembering glorious victories and funny moments. It is called OIADD (ork induced attention deficit disorder) and your whole way of life changes. Run away now... You have been warned  ;D
.
.
.
.
Still here? well then, let me introduce myself, I am a Speed Freak player. It is a kult among the orks where faster is better. The basic "rule" for speed freaks is; Nothing Walks. So lots of trucks, battle wagons, buggies, bikes, and so forth. Not to mention the color red makes all of them go faster  8) 

Sure there are other builds that are as successful, but they involve a lot of walking. So I highly recommend you check out the Kult of Speed. Let us know if you need any advice on how to build your army, as fellow addicts we are more than happy to help you focus your addiction for a more pleasurable experience.

The Bank Account has been updated. I know, it is supposed to be Mondays, but I was "distracted" a little and lost my little round to it. I have found the round to it, and so it is now updated. You can see it  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701)

You will find all the back teef that were earned during the last few weeks, and a new member, so things are looking good.

Make sure you check out the Febuwaaghry thread and get stuck in.

As always if I missed any teef earning activity just send me a PM and I will get your account updated tootie sweetie.

Pleased to report a win with the Dread Mob vs my friend's Tyrant's Legion list (quasi-Chaos Marines & Guard, from the IA10 book). Few losses although he did manage to kill my Meka-Dread and my Lifta Wagon. The Lifta Wagon did a great job though, throwing one of his Basilisks off the board in turn 1 and blowing up a couple of Rhinos too. Even managed to drop one on top of his Devastator squad  :D   also lost my SAG Big Mek after he accidentally shot himself across the board into combat with a squad that was next to his HQ and another nasty unit. But it was a great game, loads of fun  :)   I'm planning on putting up a full batrep soon, will link here when it's done.

Edit: batrep is here. (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=220238.0)

On a sad note, it looks like the Febuwaagry event is going to die a nice quiet death, only two days to go and I am the only one who put in a batrep. So for you two that made warbosses for the event, if you want your bonus teef you need to get a batrep done starring your new boss.

I think the board instability this month has not helped the Febuwaaghry event; but quite honestly, I haven't managed to get a regular game in for the past couple of weeks, never mind about a special scenario. Glad I made the boss tho, will use him as my main biker boss for sure now :)

I think the board instability this month has not helped the Febuwaaghry event; but quite honestly, I haven't managed to get a regular game in for the past couple of weeks, never mind about a special scenario.

I will say it did effect the forum quite a bit as a few times I went to post or look to see what all was going on I couldn't get on either. 

I did finally get the first game played.  lol just a bit late but I felt it was best to start at the begining.  It was rather fun at first I thought it was going to play out too easy but then it wasn't all about just rushing everything to the party and there was a bit more strategy needed.   I also played a hybrid list which is usually a bit outside my norm.

I only managed one game this month, and I was intending to print off the scenario but forgot, so it was just a normal game instead. Certainly didn't help that the board kept falling over.

This is just to let you all know that I am going on vacation, (a much safer one than last year) and will be out of contact until the 19th. That is when I get back so I will have two Bank account updates to do but we might not see it until the 20th.

So if you do some toof earning activities, make sure to send me a PM for this next 10 days so I can easily find it and credit your account.

I also understand that Angel of Death 007 is also going to go on vacation as well (not sure of the dates) and so while the bosses are gone I am sure you all will behave yourselves and not wage too much waagh without us  :)

Hello one and all, I have returned from vacation and am well rested and refreshed. Unlike last year which was a script for a Lifetime movie, this year was just a great time. Except for the two tick bites things were just wonderful.

You can see pictures at the Orks on Vacation (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=220729.0) thread. I think I posted it in the right place, if not I am sure the mods will move it. Here is a teaser for you:

(hint; click on picture for full size view)

Ginger farseer, your name has been added to the Bank Account (you can see it on the first page of this thread) and it will appear as soon as I do the next update. Now, in the event that you didn't look at the stickies above, you should go to Boot Camp here atTHIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=130950.0) Where you will see some good stuff. Then, for some more good stuff, check out the  Thread of Lists  (http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=213515.0) to find out a bit on some successful lists.

I will browse around some more today and see if there was any toof earning activity, and I will get the Bank Account updated sometime tomorrow.

On a bit of a side note, I am fully back from vacation, though I didn't take my orks with me like Skeet did.  I am still catching up on some of the posts on the ork forum so bear with me.  As always if anyone sees anything that looks out of place on the WotW board send me a PM.

Post by: CheesyRobMan on March 28, 2012, 10:41:32 AM
I hereby proclaim the heroes of my Waaagh!   ;D

I finally got round to adding trophies to the bases of a couple of my Orks who have achieved mighty victories on the battlefield. Firstly my MegaBoss/Ghaz:

(http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a29/CheesyRobMan/40K/MegaBosstrophy.jpg)

He now has a Berserker helmet on his base, in commemoration of a game where he and his MegaNob retinue krumped their way through 5 normal Chaos Marines, 10 Chosen, 10 Berserkers, and a Predator all by themselves (well, the Predator had been immobilised, but it was otherwise fully functional).

Secondly, my Big Mek with SAG:

(http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a29/CheesyRobMan/40K/SAGMektrophy.jpg)

He now has a Nurgle Terminator helmet on his base, in commemoration of the last game I played where a superb SAG shot wiped out Typhus and a 10-man Terminator squad all in one go (double 6 for Strength!) on turn 2. He made something like 7 times his own points value with one shot   :)

Do you add trophies to your models? I used to have an Eldar army and one of the Guardians got smashed apart when a Dreadnought fell on her - she was surgically reassembled with superglue and I gave her a marking for receiving wounds in action  :)

2)Are you invited to join or is there a link for joining?

Thanks

1) How do you sign up/join the WotW?

2)Are you invited to join or is there a link for joining?

1) To sign up, all you do is post that you want to join the WotW on this page.   Fairly easy.   To join there is a prospect or probationary period in which the warboss council reviews your posts and activity and then there is a secret vote in which one is voted in after a period of time.

2)  Sometimes we invite people to join and sometimes we are lucky enough that people find their way to the greatest ork board on the WWW.   Either way, new prospects go thru the same process as mentioned above.   

Welcome to being a prospect...    :)

Our club had a mini tournament today - 3 games at 850pts each. After experimenting with a trukk list, I fell back on my trusty Dread Mob  :D   sadly, for a couple of reasons*, we didn't get time for the third game, but both myself and our resident Nid player won both the games we played, so the decider is in a week's time.

Game 1 - vs Imperial Guard. Annihilation/Pitched Battle.

I took a few losses in the slog across the table, but once the Dreads hit his tanks it was pretty much over. The terrain, and some horrible rolling, also did not help my opponent.

Result - Ork Victory!  (9-6 killpoints)

Game 2 - vs Grey Knights. Capture & Control/Dawn of War.

After playing the same opponent last week and sending a full Terminator squad and Typhus into the warp with a SAG Mek, the first thing he did was send an Eversor assassin to kill said Mek, which happened in turn 2. His Dreadknight deep-strike-mishapped twice and died on the second one. He also brought a squad of 10 Death Cult Assassins which did horrible things to one of the Boyz units, so I boxed them in with empty Trukks to stop them getting to my other squad on my objective  :D  Deff Dreads krumped the unit who were holding his objective, leaving it unclaimed.

Result - Ork Victory!  (1-0 objectives)

Game 3 has been delayed and will be against a Nid list which I know includes a Tervigon, lots of Termagants, a Trygon and a Mawloc, and possibly some Genestealers, not sure. I'm on call for work that day but if they leave me alone then I'll be there and hopefully make it 3 in a row.


*The reasons we didn't start on time were that a) the organiser was really late, and b) another of the guys brought down a huge bitz/models box and told us to dig in, take what we wanted, and leave an appropriate donation. I did rather well from that too   8)

Some teef were earned with a batrep being posted and we now are up to 99 members. Almost a green tide of orks.  ;D

I must apologize about the picture quality of the bank account, since Photobucket changed their editing software I haven't been able to figure out how to use it, so have had to let the pages display "as is" from their conversion from Peachtree to JPG. I will have to spend some time on Photobucket to see if I can figure out how to use those newfangled editing softwares that they just installed.

As Mod of these 'ere Ork boards (and the closest thing you guys'll get to Gork 'n' Mork), in order to properly celebrate the reaching of Waaagh status

I hereby decree all Teef earning activities for the next 30 days counts double

This WILL stack with any bonuses Angel of Death 007 concocts for the celebrations :)
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread

Well then, go to  THIS LINK  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=221464.0) (hint: click on the blue underlines words) and get stuck in on the May unit of the Month thread, as pictures of your tank busta boys are now worth 10 teef  :o

To reward CheesyRobMan and Typhone for getting their unit pictures in before the celebration started, they will both get 15 teef for their Tank Busta Boys pictures  8) (teef will be awarded at the end of the month when the next unit of the month thread starts).

We will be doing some really good stuff soon, and there will be plenty of opportunity to earn teef, do some krumping, and generally show off what you have (models, that is... not "other stuff").

Post by: angel of death 007 on May 21, 2012, 05:15:30 PM
Gotta love the power of the mods...   May teef rain down upon us as we celebrate.

Speaking of which,  at the start of next month, we will be bringing back a well loved event of our ork board.   This one will have a bit of a twist.   (As we all know, I love to do, twisted soul that I am)

More to be anounced.   Looks like June is going to start off strong, and rightly so, what more incentive do you need...   DOUBLE TEEF and you don't even have to tie up and rob Skeetergod to do it.   

Skeet you are going to need to grow some more fingers and toes to keep up  :P

@Cheesy Wait you have 6 dreads right how bigger can your mob get??

I may not be Cheesy, but if he's going IA 8 (and honestly who wouldn't?) you can have as many as 15 Deff Dreads in the army.  Of course that's probably excessive, but we're Orks, excessive amounts of Stompy Burny Smashy is what we love.

This summer is going to be a great Orky one, AoD and Skeetergod have some great things on the horizon boyz.

Waaagh On

Since now I can make this official announcement, I want everyone to know that our own Adamscurr will be helping out the bosses and acting in part with the council.  He has officially and much deserving been choosen to start his trials into boss hood.   Wish him luck or give him the proper ork hazzin.

Hi!! I would like to be part of Way of the Waaagh plz!! I have recently started 40k and I have about 1200 pts of Orks for now (It will grow fast thought because I am kind of a compulsive buyer.. lol) Just one thing I'd like to warn my future chain of command about. I will probably not be the most active member because of my work... Being in the military ask me to be away often for long periods... So if you don't mind a guy who will participate as much as he can when he is home, I will be more than happy to stomp any french canadian in my LGS in the name of this Waaagh!!!

If I missed any toof earning activity, feel free to send me a PM and I will get your account updated tootie sweetie. (for all you new members thats French for "right quick").

AND, just to be safe I have borrowed all of Dropfalls grots so I can use their fingers and toes to count all the toof earning that is about to go on. (I might give them back if he ever gets done with his walkabout, or I might have them clean out his workshop instead, no sense in letting perfectly good scrap just go laying around  ;) )

Dust off those unfinished projekts lads.  To help inspire ya to join in the June Junkyard, here be some Orky Fluff.

It was a long summer day on the planet Gurbia, and the big Mek Skagul was kicking back in a makeshift hammock strung between an incomplete Dread and a broken down trukk slowly sipping on a fungus margarita.  His grot assistant Nebza however was not content with this.  "Boss Skagul, don'cha fink we should be fixin dese things up, I mean we'ze got a huge list of orders to finish!"  Skagul just reached up broke off a widget and threw it at Nebza hitting him straight in the head and knocking him out, the grot's blood slowly staining the dirty floor.

"Finally some peace and quiet."  Skagul said before closing his eyes.  Scarcely a second went by before the sound of inbound aircraft and explosions rocked the Ork village.  One so close it knocked Skagul out of his hammock.  "What in the name of Gork?"  Just then three loud knocks came at the door of the Mekshop, before it was kicked in by Warboss Argfang.  He said "Skagul, we'ze unda attack, get your lazy good for nothing mekboy butt in gear and start making me somefin really Killy!"


Peace

OK folks, the  Bank Account  (http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701) is updated. I have to post it a little early as all these grots I stole from Dropfall are already counting and really trying to get in the way.

So since it is a new month and lots of good stuff has started I will get the update done now, and so there won't be an update Monday (and also because I am going on a trip  ;) ).

Congrats to Adamscurr for being the Ork Poster of the Year. Someone please tell me how many teef that is worth, so I can get these grots to counting.

Boss Ard'Ragger, I fixed your name from what you had it before to your current name.

Let us have a great month, and may many models get built and a full on Waagh started.

No no, adamscurr, you didn't get sympathy votes.  The forum recognized you as the true asset that you are.  Sympathy had nothing to do with it.  And in case the rest of you lot haven't noticed our good friend here has taken over the Unit of the Month thread (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=221935.0), which this month covers the Killa Kan.  Everyone should be sure to post their thoughts, questions, and knowledge on these buggers to show their continued support for our poster of the year.

On a related note, if you haven't joined in the Junkyard: Gitz it Done Event (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=221925.0) yet, please do, it not only gives you the chance to finish off those unfinished projekts (I know we all have them), but you can also cheer on the amazing work which is already starting, get Orky inspiration from your fellow WotW members, and of course earn a couple teef which just so happen to be double this month round.

Oh and SPOILERS, there may be a related event to the Junkyard coming down the pipe in the coming week(s), so be sure to get your Orky Projekts underway!

Waaaagh on

I see a lot of good stuff went on while I was in the barren wasteland of Norfolk/Virginia Beach. I will cruise the forum and see what toof earning stuff went on while I was up north, and will try to get an update tomorrow morning before she who must be obeyed wakes up.  ;D

If you want to send me a PM to point me in the direction of your toof earning activities to make my life easier (and to make sure I don't miss it) please do.

Oi!  In addition to the great Junkyard: Gitz it Done Event (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=221925.msg2686579#msg2686579) today I have the distinct pleasure of giving you all the
June Junkyard Battle (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=222105.msg2688342#msg2688342), a special mission directly related to the Junkyard Gitz it Done event.

But don't worry, you don't have to be a participant in the Junkyard Gitz it Done to play this special mission or to earn teef from it, but you are missing out on extra teef, as well as a great chance to finish those projects sitting in the corner of your mekshops collecting dust.

The WotW is always proud to provide you with the best Special Events we can think up, so enjoy June's smattering while you can!

Ok so I've been frequenting this forum for a couple of years and playing orks for nearly as long but it has taken a poke from SkeeterGod to remind me to actually sign up (plus he mentions free stuff ;)).

I've got a pretty big hoard (around 5000pts) but its in a poor state of paintedness, I really enjoy the modeling aspect of playing orks but don't have the time to paint them alongside all my other projects.
Once I'm signed up perhaps I'll gather some motivation from the cool contests you run here :D

Welcome WisdomLS, since you did sign up on the same day I "prodded" you, you get the 10 teef for your video Diamond Jubilee Batrep. (5 teef normal plus it doubles as this is Green Tide Waagh month). Your name has been added to the Bank Account and you will see it there on the next update (next Monday).

I am sure Angel of Death 007 will be along shortly to add you to the rolls.

Make sure you look at the stickies above and check out the Ork Bootkamp stuff to give you some great ideas and tips.  Again welcome to the WoTW.

PS: if you can talk to the Queen and get her to sign up and post a picture of her royal orks, I will give you a bag of bonus teef... ;D

Ah yes that sounds like me,  I had more gray orks than I could count.   Not anymore.   I did one to two FOC's a month all last year and now I got a mostly painted apocalypse size ork army.

I have seen you around enough so it is good to see you finally succumbed to the green side......   Welcome aboard.

Congrats to everyone on their shiny new titles and ranks, good stuff, this is such a good month to be green  ;D

For those of you newly promoted, look at your listing in the roster of the first page of this thread, guess what? Most of you have no kit, you are bare handed naked orks... :o 

You know you can use teef to get some kit, do you want to be a naked ork your whole life? Doesn't 'eavy armor sound nice and cozy? How 'bout a big shoota to keep you warm at night? Since this month is double teef, I suggest that if you haven't done anything yet then get stuck in and earn some teef. And for those of you that have teef; use them to buy some kit.

At the end of this month a lot of you will see some big deposits of teef into your accounts, especially the Junkyard Gitz it done crowd, if your waiting till the end of the month to get your gear, that is OK, but if you just like being a naked ork, then I guess I will have to chase you with my bike and my pet attack squig "Fluffy"  ;)

If the equipment comes as standard for a given Ork and therefore costs 0pts in the codex, do you automatically have it? Or do you have to spend teef to get it?

If the equipment comes as standard for a given Ork and therefore costs 0pts in the codex, do you automatically have it? Or do you have to spend teef to get it?

Well then lets see if we can answer that coherently. Since a boy costs six points, and comes with three pieces of kit (light armor, slugga and choppa). This is for an already "grown" ork. So since becoming a ork is free then that means those pieces of kit are about two points a piece.

Consider the "life cycle" of an ork, that orks are grown. Then crawl out from under a rock, or something similar and has no kit, and then has to "find" it or earn it. When you join the WoTW you become an ork, something along the lines of you ripened enough to fall off the branch, now you need to find or earn some kit.

So the going value of an item is two teef per point, this means that a slugga will cost you four teef, and so forth. I hope that makes sense as I haven't had any coffee yet, and am trying to sound reasonable while the coffee is brewing.

Now you don't have to buy kit in any order, like in the codex, you can go straight for a big shoota if you want. Not to mention you can buy any kit you want as long as you have teef. So if you don't want a slugga and choppa you can save your teef for a rockit buggy. Once you have the buggy you have no need for a slugga and choppa as you now have a sweet ride.

I hope that answers the questions, if not ask some more questions, and I will try to answer them after coffee. Now I am going to go stare at the coffee pot and make it brew faster... ;)

When I get the reports from the other bosses I will add the teef your accounts and that means you won't see it until the next update.

As always if I missed any toof earning activity, just send me a PM and I will get your account updated tooty sweety.

June was without a doubt a big month!  Many of us got some shiny new flyers, some crazy last 5th Edition games in, and of course theres the debut of 6th.

For those of you with those new edition blues, I'd like to point you to the WotW's July Ork Fiction Contest (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=222353.0) headed up by our own Master of Molars Skeetergod.  (I just might join in on the new edition woes after getting and reading the book)

So if you are just an Orkscribe, or need that distraction from 6th Edition try and write up some of your armies fluff, I know I'm looking forward to reading about some Nobz.

Peace

Lots of good toof earning activity this last week, and congrats to CheesyRobMan for no longer being a naked ork, he now has his kustom mega blasta and some armor too, make sure to check out the first page of this thread to see his shiny new stuff.

Now that the holiday is over, and we have all had a chance to read the new rules, lets get stuck in. I would like to see lots of battle reports showing how the orks are just krumping fools. Also as a reminder there is a fiction contest this month, and the unit of the month thread is trucks transports. Make sure you check them out and show off what you have.

Lots of good stuff, lets see some more good stuff.

Ork inquisition nothing...   i would be more worried about that thump of the boss pole bearing down upon ya.   

In all honesty though since I am holding off til the boxed set to get into 6th edition, I have been working on a few other armies as well.   Once I read up on 6th edition I will figure out the best way to build / magnatize my dakka jet.   Currently I am pretty fixed on the idea of building it as a dakka jet yet magnatizing the big rockets so I can play it as a fighta bomba in apocalypse.   I don't want to use the skorcha rokkits for the model unless I have to as I have other plans for them.   But I guess I could always magnatize them so they work on either model.   

Our local club forum is putting together a 6th-ed summary for each race and of course I've volunteered for the Orks. Am I OK to copy and paste some of the stuff from the tactics threads here?

I would recommend posting it in a new post.  If you post it here when we get to the next page it will be lost and hard to reference.   In a new post we could add it to our tactics section and I could link it.   Not to mention if it is really good, I would reccommend publishing it as we have not had an ork article in awhile, and I know the editors would be itching to get their teef into some ork articles.

Ok...  In real life I'm currently working on a doctoral degree, so I have a little insight into citation...  If it is posted to the internet, it is considered public information and you can cite it even without permission.  Think about academic journals.  Once it's out there, it's free game...  So, you can use the information here without the consent of the original author.  However, you should give due credit to the site, so write a citation like this.

WOTW. (date). (name of article or thread). Retrieved from (cut and paste link) 

You in text citation should look like this...

Skeetergod (WOTW, 2012) commented that the kult of speed is superior to all other typical ork list variants.

Adam

Technically, Skeetergod's comments are what you are citing in my example, but since you are going to using entire threads, putting WOTW as the author is appropriate...

Stuff is going on, and soon there will be some large amounts of teef being awarded. Make sure you get to the  Unit of The Month (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=222338.0) thread and the July Fiction Contest  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=222353.0) thread and get stuck in. Clock is ticking, so if you want some more teef you need to get round to it.

Once again I must chide all you naked orks out there. You have no kit, so you are walking around out there with just your bare knuckles. That is ok, as we do need orks to go through the minefields, so those without kit will get sent to the minefields.  ;) 
     Check out the first page of this thread and look next to your name on the unit roster, you will see those of us who have kit and those who are minefield workers.
     Then look at the Bank Account and if you have enough teef get yourself some kit, if you don't have enough teef then do something to earn some, and then get some kit.

My Ghaz/mono-cycle warboss and a 5 squad of nob bikers with cybork, while in hindsight was way to expensive did get the focus of the entire enemy force and my dice where on fire taking four turns for them to all to die.

Sorry all, but I am currently on the road, and the WiFi where I am at is so weak that it takes almost two minutes to just change pages, and to upload anything is at this time: impossible. 

What this means is that I will not be able to post an update to the Bank Account until later this week if I get back home as scheduled. I will have the same problem next week as well, as I am traveling job to job (tis the season to do training, and I am the trainer).

I am keeping track of teef earnings, and will get them properly credited as I find them. Not to worry, I will get an update posted as soon as I have some decent bandwidth.

By Orktober I will be back home for the month and will be getting the updates in on time, so don't go sending your grot assassins after me  ::)

Congratulations to all to all those recently promoted, Good Stuff!

Now, just to blow my own horn, I have been published again, you can see my article on how to make a meka-dread out of the hell brute  at this linky  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?action=articles;sa=view;article=998)  8)

More good news, I will be back at my home this weekend, and will be able to thoroughly comb the boards for toof earning activities and will get the bank account updated good and propa on time (this coming Monday).  If any of you have been up to something, just send me a PM to direct my attention to the right place so I don't miss it, and get your teef credited to your account.

As for all you new ork yoofs as well as some of you not so new orks, if you are running around naked relying on just your claws and paws to get by, it is time to get some kit. Using Boss Ard Ragger as an example; he has been ready to buy kit before he was even an ork (good stuff BTW), and get stuck in good and propa.

Congrats to all the new boyz and prospekts - I've been quiet here the last while cos our house is being taken apart (rewiring, decorating, new kitchen etc etc) so my hobby time is very limited right now. Looking forward to getting stuck back into it, although it's going to be probably another couple of months before I can do much. On the plus side, my hobby room/man ork cave is getting an upgrade, so I should be more productive  8)

I have been tossing up for some time whether to start off 40K with Panzees, Duck Panzees or Orks (I've played The Other Game for about 20 years, and my first ever army there had green skins).  And my being here means that it is Da Orks I is going for, as I cut meself da other day and my blood isn't sparkly enuff sose I cannae be no Panzee.

Besides, as Kurnell Killgore sez: "Panzee don't surf!"

My army is WAAAGH! Killgore, and is being modelled on the 1st/9th Air Cavalry portayed in Apocalypse Now (probably my fave flick of all time).  I also want to do a Grot Armoured Krumpany some time soon, based on Runlykel, Da Dessert Fox.

This means that I can only ever really be a Blood Axe, cos I stinks less than a Snakebite & is much smarterer than any Goff I know.

Dat's me den. Can I have the keys to da teef bank, pliz?

The Bank Account:  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701) has been updated, and we are now officially into the month of ORKTOBER!

Sorry it took so long to to get some bandwidth but I guess south west Georgia still hasn't made it to the 21st century yet. The "wireless" service around there reminds me of when NetZero was actually a free dial up service (couple years ago, eh).

Now onto the great stuff for this month: This is ORKtober! We bosses have some good stuff for you all, and we hope to see some great things happening, so go and get stuck in or I will have to call you a poser  :o

This is also a great month to earn some teef, so all you naked orks can get some kit and be a proper ork that is part of the mob instead of the wave we send out for minefield duty.

A few teef earned here and there, but a bit of a slow week. Congrats to Boss 'Ardrager who finally got his kit. Which makes me look at all you naked orks (not ogle mind you) and leer contently that at least we have some who are ready for mine field duty  ;)

For those of you who don't want mind field duty, earn some teef, and buy some kit. If you don't know how to earn some teef just read the stuff in the bank account right after the report sheets. To see who is mine field crew and who is battle ready just scroll up a bit and look at the roster, those that have kit have it listed after their names. If there is nothing after your name then you are mine field clearers.

Lots of stuff going on this month to earn teef, make sure to get stuck in.

So, going to make my first real Ork investment next month. I'll be dropping some money on my first box of boyz. Not so sure I want to go with AoBR boyz as I want extra bits and prefer to support my LGS. I've been interested in the hobby since 1992 and have been collecting miniatures and painting. I never really played the game though.

I love under-dog armies and from what I've heard in my LGS and on the forums, the Orks have been under-dogs for awhile and will most likely be under-dogs for quite a awhile.

My initial list will be 1k and can be viewed at this link: Kommando Un'Toof's Convoy (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=224288.0)

Eventually I will be moving toward three lists. Biker Gang, Dakka focus and Green Tide. Perhaps dabbling into allies later in my career.

Anyway, I hope to be an active Ork of the WotW and eventually model warboss for other grots and new recruits to look up to.

Edit: How can I get a avatar photo? I tried changing it in my user cp but it only lets me select photos that are already uploaded and when I select that it says there are no photos.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome Kommando Un'Toof, allow me to add my greetings - Skeet's already filled you in so no need to repeat any of that. Getting your boyz set up with shootas will be a good first step towards two of your goals - a green tide with lots of dakka! Don't listen to any silly humies who refer to Orks as underdogs. If they persist, send a hungry squig in their direction. Then you can sell their models on ebay and buy more Orks.  ;D

Post by: OD from TV on October 31, 2012, 11:05:21 PM
The best way to get some teef (and really the only way) is to participation.  The WotW is a lot like the other CoC's and PoC's on the 40konline site, but I personally feel that one of the reasons why we've become so active and such a great community is because when we built it up we took the initiative on creating the teef system as a way to further reward those who participate.  (Well we also have the amazingly insane Skeetergod who was willing to be an Orkountant).

We have a wide multitude of events that come up from time to time, usually run by Angel of Death 007, Skeetergod, Adamscurr or myself (well moreso on the other boss's parts), including special scenario games, building/painting competitions, and fiction competitions.  Usually even if you don't place highly, there is still a nice reward granted, but if you're good (and lucky) enough to place at the top you'll get a good sized crate of teef.

More than just events though each month Adamscurr runs a Unit of the Month thread which besides being a place to discuss various units and strategies also is a good goldmine for teef, particularly if you happen to be heavy on the tactical mindset with great pics of your minis.  Other good ways of earning teef are writing up Batreps, fiction, and tactica for the greater forum (as such I mean putting these up in the appropriate areas such as the Batrep and Fiction boards, then letting us here at the WotW know).

Now I'm not going to say that those are the only ways to earn teef (although that's a lot of different ways if you think about it!), but they are the most common.  From time to time and really on a whim I've been known to gift a couple teef here and there, and I believe that AoD, Skeetergod and Adamscurr do the same.  But that's a rarity and isn't usually done in the public.

Ultimately though teef are just a bonus to the WotW, as are titles within the WotW.  They aren't really given, they have to be earned, so if you want to get off that minefield, the best (and really only) way is to participate.

Peace

Thanks for all the advice, although i did know most or all of the stuff already as i can read (i think it's in one of the stickies, well i know i read it somewhere)  ;D

Yeah most of my minis are gray colorscheme, so not much teef to get with pictures of awesome battles. And in the nearly two years i've been collecting i've only played a hand full of games so no awesome batreps either  :-\

But i'm big on converting stuff so next Gitz it done or similar event i'm going to get myself some teef =)

already got 2 manz converted from AoBR Nobz in the last week :) (would have put them up for last month event but i was too lazy to paint them)

I did read about fiction event and i might try my luck there but i have absolutely no idea what to write about and i have only like 10 painted minis and since it's linked to one i might have to pass up on that one :(

but anyways it's great to be welcomed into the community :)

Some good stuff going on this month, make sure you get stuck in to earn some teef, and once you earn some teef make sure to get some kit, as all you naked orks out there are looking at some serious minefield duty soon. Those with kit will just wait and watch while those without kit clear the minefield for us.  :D

So go to the  Nano Orko  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=224426.0) or the  Unit of the Month  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=224460.0) and get stuck in for this months toof earning activities.

Also, as a subtle hint and reminder, next month will see the "Saint Snick" contest, look for it and get involved, a good time for all  :)

Oi!  Everyone at the WotW have their hatches locked down just in case the world ends?  Well this Boss is making plans just in case it doesn't end, to that effect I invite you all to take a gander at my new Megaz by January (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=224936.0) thread in the Konversion and Modelling Board, where I'll be building Meganobz (obviously) the runner up to Junkas when I asked the forum to help me decide what to build next (the Junkas will hopefully be made in Feb, I still can't figure out how to get more GW product into them).

I know the thread just started, and that I've barely done any work on it, but I'd love to hear some C&C from my WotW brothers on the projekt as it gets going.

Peace
~OD

Hey all ...

SKEETERGOD invited me over this part of the forum ...
... after reading my thread about an elite/small ork force (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=224972.0) for small model-count list ideas

So hey!!
 :P

@OD from TV
About the 'end of the world'
As it running late to organise a full on bucket list
(Do quite enjoy that film also ... may go on my bucket list ... to watch)
My plan is this ...
... wait and see what happens in the Australasia/Eastern Pacific area on the 21st
As it will be the 21st there first
So I will gauge from what happens there to see if I need to prep or plan
As if the Mayans were are correct... it may 'hit' there first

Failing that ...
... I'll have my Red Dwarf DVDs on repeat as the world goes to pot
lol

Welcome to the Green side THE Dwarf and Suicide_Mission, your names have been added to the Bank Account, and you will see them there on the next update. Now in case you didn't look at the stickies at the top of this forum, make sure to go to the Boot Kamp here atTHIS LINK (http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=130950.0)

Lots of good info, and lots of good pictures too  8) While a lot of the tacticas are for 5th, there are a couple that have been updated for 6th, Like  The Burna Boy Tactica  (http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=130950.msg2548301#msg2548301) (one of my favorite units. The other information you will find there can still be useful as it will give you a few tips and tricks you can use in future games.

Again welcome both of you to the GREEN side, I am sure Angel of Death 007 will be along shortly to add you to the roster.

Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: Ginger farseer on December 20, 2012, 01:00:09 PM
First, welcome to the forum.

The bank account is a collection of all the teef that we have earnt. You see, here on the ork forum we have a virtual curancy that rewards good posting and being involved with WOTW events. You can spend teef on upgrades from the ork codex (they cost twice the number of teef as points, and you can only buy stuff at your level in the CoC, so a yoof cannot get mega armour).

It is explained more on the 1st page of this thread.

Hope this helps clarify things.
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: OD from TV on December 20, 2012, 10:21:04 PM
Well said Ginger.  The teef system is something we designed when the WotW launched, and certainly wouldn't have managed to survive if not for the tireless efforts of Skeetergod.  It's really a way to reward all those WotW members for their efforts on making the 40konline site, specifically the Ork board the best it can.  It also allows for fun little things here and there such as teef betting on various things like the big apoc game between AoD and Skeetergod last year.

@typhon, man I don't know what I'm going to do in this world without twinkies, ding dongs, or those fruit pies, they've been my comfort food after every breakup I've ever had.  I guess that means I'll just have to marry the next one... or maybe find a more mature way of dealing with bachelor-hood.

Personally I don't think the end of the world is nigh, there've been at least half a dozen "the apocalypse is NOW" scares just in my brief life, and it hasn't happened yet, and tomorrow I think will just be another day (well other than the fact it's the solstice).

Peace

Well you should post at your own discretion, personally I try to only post if I have something relevant to say.  Nevertheless I hope that we here at the WotW can help break you of those lurking habits, we are a rather friendly bunch after all, even on questions that have no definitive answer that have been asked a million times (like the classic Slugga v. Shoota)

As for the bets, the big public ones were over Skeetergod and AoD's big Apoc battle, where the forum as a whole got together to decide objectives and then bet on who'd accomplish what objective, win the game, turns finished, etc.  I think there have been some other not so public bets, but I'm of course not privy to that.  Perhaps teef betting may become a much larger part of future events *shifty eyes*.  What?  I am in no way planning an event *shifty eyes*

Joking aside, there are things in the works for next year, my personal new years resolution is to run a [Censored Due to Spoiler] for the WotW.  I know, I know I'm such a tease.  Y'all will just have to stay tuned to the WotW.

Hey all y'all.

To be honest I have been reluctant to post here and convert to "da green skins" as I am chaos krazy, but I went and bought a box of Nobz today and had so much fun putting them together that I cant wait to get my waaagh into full swing. So I am officially announcing that I am starting "Da waaagh of Da Red Army".
My army list is currently under construction. Currently I have 11 boyz, 10 nobz and 1 wierdboy(Razputin) who I know I will love so much....I guess I still suffer from chaos.....Ill probablly use my orks as allies to my chaos until I can build up a large enough force and declare independance(along with a huge battle) from chaos, should be fun.

Orks bring more random chaos... then well chaos, and with the conversion potential you can achieve a more unique army  IMHO.

Highlights from our massive 38,000 point apocalypse match (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=225290.0)

I must apologize to all that I have not been able to update the Bank Account for a while.

I am currently between homes and so do not have reliable internet access. Trying to upload a single picture uses up all the available bandwidth and still fails, so once I get to a place with a bit more reliable WiFi I will get the update posted.

Not to worry, I am keeping track of earnings, and the other bosses are also watching so you won't get shorted any teef from any toof earning activity.

If you do any teef earning activities either send me a PM or post a link to your work in this thread. I will get your teef credited to your account tootie sweetie. Once I am a little more settled I will resume the normal Monday updates of the Bank Account.

Yes there is something bumping in the night, for in the not so distant future (ie next month), the WotW is rising up from battlements to issue forth a new Waaaagh in the form of one of our WotW Events!

In the next couple days the WotW will be unveiling it's new Event for the month of April (and before anyone asks NO this isn't a joke).  So keep your eyes peeled in the next couple of days for a sign up and Event thread, and in the meantime start sharpening your knifes and get ready.

Post by: OD from TV on May 3, 2013, 01:23:23 AM
There's a curious question I've been wanting to ask the WotW as a whole for a brief little while now.  We all know that a new Ork dex will be coming down the pipe, the rumor mill has it clocked anytime from 4th quarter this year to 3rd quarter next year.  I don't want to clutter up this thread with anybody wishlisting about a new dex (open a new thread for that or better yet find the one still on the first page from last month...err I mean March), but the question I want to pose is this -

Would anyone want a WotW mini campaign before the release of a new codex? OR would you rather one a month or two after a new codex's release?

I think it's a valid question for the WotW members.  Would you want one last hurrah in the form of a campaign or praise in a new codex with one of our campaigns.  Its a question I want to leave to you, the WotW members.

Peace

I like where you are at OD.  I think it would be awesome to run a campaign with the new codex to krump it out gooda nd proppa, then run a mirror of the same campaign with the new dex to see if Gork and Mork gave us something new to the mix  :o
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: CheesyRobMan on May 3, 2013, 01:48:46 PM
I like where Boss Ard'ragger is coming from - maybe a comparison campaign, a sort of before and after idea? The 'after' bit should probably be at least a month after the new codex to give us time to make our adjustments.

Post by: -V- on May 3, 2013, 04:27:02 PM
Well Id love to try what Boss Ard'Ragger suggested.  My ork army is just getting to a point where its playable with whats been painted.  Ive been trying to oranise some sort of campaign between Oink and Koval but not got very far so something like this would be perfect for me to get in some games with this current dex and then help develop my waaagh skills when the new dex rolls in!
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: angel of death 007 on May 4, 2013, 07:11:43 PM
Going to chime in here as well.   As far as a campaign goes, i dunno about you but this whole taking allies to deal with large threat armies is pure B.S.   With so many chaos players at my LGS with their 2+ helldrakes orks don't stand a fighting chance.   I have got so frustrated between the release of 6th in the limited games I got in that I have been starting to learn warmachine / hordes. 

So as I think an ork campaign should be primarily run with a full ork army...  i not wantz no stinkin oomies.   I think it would be best to wait til our next codex.   

otherwise atleast on my end, i will probably have to run an allies list due to my LGS.  That is if i can find the drive to even want to play...  grrrrr  curse you 6th edition.

Rather than a campaign, I'd say the first month after a new dex would be good for just posting battle reports with lots of comentary to hel everyone know what the dex can do...

Well Diggas from Gorka Morka are technically humans, they just are suffering from quazi nuclear fallout and adapted Orky Kulture due to a lack of brain cells.  Still in my book IF (and it's a rather big IF) I decide to ever add in some IG to my Ork force you can bet a bucket of teef that I'm going to go whole hog and convert them up as an homage to a GW specialist game that will never get a real update.

I like where you are at OD.  I think it would be awesome to run a campaign with the new codex to krump it out gooda nd proppa, then run a mirror of the same campaign with the new dex to see if Gork and Mork gave us something new to the mix  :o
That's certainly an idea.  Not exactly what I was asking, but I suppose we could theoretically run the same campaign twice.  I don't know though, I'll have to think on it, part of the fun of a crazy campaign is that you don't know what the next mission is.  Of course as someone who has written or co-written most of the WotW campaigns that's an aspect I don't get to enjoy.

Thus far I'd say public opinion is 2 for compare campaign and 2 for a month post new dex.  Any other input?

Peace

I like the idea of two campaigns. One now, and one after the new codex. Same scenarios, same objectives, etc. Just new codex to compare what went on.

AOD; I took out three helldrakes in my last (first) game with rockit buggies, and even glanced one out of the sky with my burna bomma. Of course he had the cannon on them and not the flamer, but it was a very bloody game and he admitted that I was the first player he had played against that killed all three of his drakes.  So, I suggest adding squadrons of rockit buggies to your list as anti air.

Squad of warbuggies VS vendetta... at the current vendetta price.   I don't think 3 rokkit buggies can complete with 3 twin link lascannons at a lot better BS.   

So right now it is hard to flex off an allied list and even harder for me to field an all orks army in a competitive setting.

First of all, sorry for not being around recently, real life took over :(

Secondly, i also like the idea of a comparison campaign, to see which areas of the new dex fare better than the old.

As for how do deal with lots of well armed, well armoured flyers, i don't know, either lootas or rokkit buggies seem like the best bet, but as AOD has said, we are fighting an uphill battle.

Greetings Greenies!  I read the last few posts, and am going to chime in:

I love the idea of running a 2 phase scenario, using our current codex and the hitherto unreleased new codex (time/place pending).  It's almost like the research projects that I had to do in school.  Taking IDENTICAL forces/points allotments of ORKS only (sorry OD, can't wrap my head around anyone still using the diggas from Gorka/Morka), no allies; and then comparing the pros and cons of each identical scenario experience.  We all remember what 5th ed was like, and I daresay that I enjoyed it a lot more than 6th.  Granted, shooting has become the great game equalizer, but in my humble opinion, it's not what the ork philosophy is about...getting into grips with the enemy and standing toe to toe, that's what it's all about.  But....I digress...

We shoulddo this.  We should plan for it to start by July or August; that gives everyone in the WoTW to get their orks inna row and get ready fer krumpin'....

My two teef...

I figure its about time I get myself signed up on the WOTW.
I've been posting here on and off for about a year or so now; right around the time I smartened up and started playing Orks! I started out with the IG and still enjoy playing with them once in a while, but wanted an army that was polar opposite. i.e. a CC army! I got bored of playing an army that "sits out" in the assault phase!  :D So really wasnt too much choice in the matter; DA ORKS!

I currently have a little over 7000 pts of orks, and ~2000 pts painted.

Heres my typical Goff list of footsloggin orks!

HQ
Warboss, EA, CB, PK, BP, Sqig  -  115

Big Mek, KFF, EA, CB, PK  -  125

Troops
Slugga boys x 30, 2 BS, Nob, EA, PK, BP - 235

Slugga boys x 30, 2 x BS Nob, EA, PK, BP - 235

Shoota boys x 30, 3 Rokkit, Nob, EA, PK, BP - 255

Shoota boys x 30, 3 Rokkit, Nob, EA, PK, BP - 255

Deff Dread - 2 x BS  -  95

Elites
Lootas  -  150

Heavy
Killa kanz 3 w/ rokkits  -  135

Killa kanz 3 w/ BS  -  120

1850

I'm planning on sending pic when I get some on the computer!

Now, on to another few items. Post your army and some pictures up there in the "Faces of The Waagh" thread. Then, since you are in the stickies go the Ork Bootkamp thread as well.

Now that the wedding is over, the family went back up north and everything is starting to settle down, you should be seeing more of me.   I am juggling a bit as I signed up for a journeyman league for my Trollblood army at my LGS.  But I am thinking of bringing the orks and maybe getting a game in.

Congrats on the getting hitched part. Enjoy the honeymoon period while it lasts. Soon she will become your "she who must be obeyed" and you will realize that I wasn't kidding about begging for a bigger allowance (even though you earn the paycheck).
Life is good, and married life is just as good, it means you will never again have nothing to do. Again, congrats.

Now, have you started working on her to pick an army? If you have convinced her to play orks, I will send you some "wedding present" ork bits so she can start on the fast road to full ork addiction. Let me know  ;D

I think we all should give AoD a hearty congratulations on the wedding!  (as a side note I always cry at weddings  :'( , what it's manly!)

And I think Skeetergod actually has a decent idea, perhaps we could shower you with a random assortment of bits.  I think it's kind of the tabletop gamer's way of throwing rice (even if rice is no longer thrown at weddings).

Then our Master of Molars, Skeetergod has temporarily seized control of the Unit of the Month (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=226715.msg2729165#msg2729165) and painted it RED with Deff Koptas!

As for a more on topic note of interest, there is still plenty of time to join the July Festivities.  (and yes, I'll admit that I had to pause for a second to double check I was writing the correct month, I blame the clocks, they're moving faster than they're supposed to, it only feels like February to me).

The Bank Account:  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701) has been updated.

The bandwidth gods were smiling on me today, and I finally got the PDFs converted to JPEGs and uploaded... Although I was worried till the end there ,when I hit save, and it took a real long time to come back to the right screen.

However, I can't seem to get the new pages to fit the screen (most likely user error) so just click on the page, where you think your name is, to see a bigger (and readable) view.

As always, if there was any toof earning activity that went on that I missed, feel free to PM me, and I will gladly add the teef to your account.

Also, if there are any new members who don't see their name there, just send me a PM and I will correct that too.

Hello all fellow Greenskins,

Good news! After the contract with my former WiFi company expired, I now have a new and much more reliable company.

Short version, the "mobile" wireless device offered by the "un-named" cell phone company with supposed unlimited data plan seemed to be not really unlimited, and often times non existent. I had to call them once to tell them to give me some bandwidth so I could get online to pay their bill....

Now, I have the mysterious cable that magically appears out of the ground and hooks to my router and I have instant internet access again. I am absolutely amazed that I don't have to curse at thin air anymore to try to use my laptop to check on the Ork board. 

What this means for you. This means I will be able to get back to regularly updating the bank account, and will be able to get on to this sage forum and keep better track of what is going on.

I am updating the bank account today, and will spend the rest of the week looking around the rest of the boards to see if there has been any toof earning activity, and next Wednesday I will post the new spread sheets. And I will endeavor to update the bank account every Wednesday from now on.

I know the forum has been a little deserted lately, and this is probably because I was not able to faithfully keep the bank account updated. Well, that has changed. I can boot up my computer and be online in less than two minutes now and so I will be able to do a better job as the Orkountant.

So, lets all start gearing up for ORKTOBER!

most of my ideas seem to be revolving around anticipating a new codex.

Id like to see a revisit to unit of the month working through the new book, or a monthly painting competition where everyone paints one of their new shiny toys and shows it off.

I dont know how to even begin or where to start with something like a campaign for members of the WotW to participate in or follow and post their results.

Some Greenskin battle reports would be good.  We have one of the more active communities on 40KO so lets make use of that because we seem to be a little light on the ground in terms of Orky fight goodness.

I dont know how to even begin or where to start with something like a campaign for members of the WotW to participate in or follow and post their results.

It's a lot easier than you think.  A great step one might be to ask someone whose put together a campaign before.  Really the hardest parts is putting together the time to write it, organize it, and find enough people who want to play it to make it worthwhile.  When it comes down to it all, its strangely easier and harder than you'd imagine.  I personally found the organization and layout of such a competition to be relatively easy, however there were those who criticized it (as there always will be).

I may have a couple game missions in my backpocket, but at the moment I don't see the WotW putting on a campaign event due to a lack of interest (or a perceived lack of interest), which will in all likelyhood pick back up when the next codex is released.  (Of course I'd have rather that happened before insanity such as D-Weapons entered into standard games)

I too am waiting the delayed release of the new codex. Formerly rumored to be last Febuwaaghry, but now it appears to be slightly delayed by a few months.

However, if there is interest in a campaign by more than three people, then I would be willing to be the scorekeeper, or any other task as needed.

Playing the orks is still a fun thing to do, even with the "outdated" codex we still krump most armies fairly handily. Necrons are a slightly tougher army to beat, but it can be done. Marines are still krumpable as long as you don't stay too far away...

Anyways, let me know and we can get rolling.

Welcome back Nightwalker!

We've all been somewhat absent on the forums this year, we still have 2013 on the first page of the forum.  It's not a bad thing necessarily, its just a general lull, the type which has been experienced before, namely around the tail end of the 3rd edition codex's reign.

The WotW is still here, just like Orkz on a planet waiting for a new challenge to kick us out of complacency and back on the warpath, we are all waiting for a new codex (or possibly a new rulebook), before we once more waaagh to our hearts content.

I could totally go for either a new codex or a new rule book.  I will say 6th edition has pushed me more into fantasy which I have been working on recently.   Would love an excuse to start working on my orks again.  I have been lingering as well since activity isn't very high I only check back every so often.  But have no fear I am still around.   Hope skeetergod is doing good.

I have to say the opposite has been true for me.  6th edition has cemented my love of all things green.. I picked up my orks at the end of 5th and played a few games but 6th has been a truly enjoyable time to be green for me!

Well, I have put my new rule book on pre order, and am waiting to see how to again adapt my ork forces to a set of rules they weren't written to be compatible with.  ;)

I am still hoping that soon this year we will see the new ork codex, they did just finish the IG with lots of new toys. Let us hope the orks get the same treatment. It would be nice to have actual anti aircraft stuff rather than a large squad of tank bustas or lootas, (read; vehicles I can paint red) so we will have to wait and see.

I have been playing campaigns, and it does bring a different level to my ork madness. I am actually trying to acquire some new boss models, and have been cruising ebay a lot. I may have to just buy some nobs and make a few new bosses. Of course, I could "wait" and see what GW will be releasing but us orks are not known for our patience.  :D

I am excited too.  If rumors are true my Weirdboy might finally come out of his box.   I plan on waiting for the new boxed set...  rumors are saying Orks and Blood Angels.  I can't justify spending the money on the new rulebook need some plastic goodies to go with it.   I am excited for a new edition though and from what I am hearing Orks will be the next codex release.  Hoping that is true. 

Bring on the goodies we need it and pray for a more streamlined rule version for 7th to trump over the total failure of 6th and bring gamers back to the game.

Be careful with the new Box set.  RUMOR ONLY is that the book with the box set will not be a full rule book.  Which would suck, as that is how I have bought the last few - with minis attached.

Depends what they mean by that - the mini rulebook has never been a "full rulebook", but that's because it cuts out all the extra pages of pretty pictures, missions, hobby tips etc etc. Although maybe GW have finally figured out that no one ever used the giant rulebook...

New rules...new look...As long as I can KRUMP something, I'm always game!  I'm practically holding my breath for the new codex...I'm hopin' this summer...I'll be satisfied if 7th ed doesn't push toe to toe combat even further onto a back burner (I'm still smartin' from 6th ed uber shootin'...).  Also, I feel a certain dread creeping into my brainpan from the back and forth about psychic power resurgence.  For those who remember 2nd/3rd ed with the Uber Character and his retinue of hangers on, psychic powers then were king, with everything else secondary.  Wasn't wild about that...Even if we have a MegaMind of our own, preferablly green to blue, I still love the idea of krumpin' to mind wars...just sayin'...

The new rule book (currently being drooled over) does indeed add in a new turn phase: mind power stuff.  :'(

The good news is, that as long as we can get close enough, those puny psychers will still die a propa choppy death.

Having been going against a lot of eldar lately, I am getting used to the various farseer trickses, and have found that a truck load of boys is most often the cure.

Of course since they have made escalation as part of the main rules now, a stompa should be able to deal with any and all librarians, lords, farseers, etc. etc. etc.   ;D

I was surprised that the new rule book comes as a set of three. The rules in one book, the fluff in another, and the modeling stuff in yet another. Making it convenient that we no longer have to tote a ten pound book with us, just a three pounder... ;)

The Bank Account:  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701) Has been updated.

If you feel that you earned some teef and they are not there, just let me know and I will get your account updated tootie sweetie.

As for other stuff; with the new codex and the new rule book, we have some Waaaghing to do, so lets see some more good stuff!

Now with that out of the way just dropping back in I hope personal life and the desire have not been in favor of the green machine.  SO I making an effort to get back in the waaaaagh.  This is due to I seen the new codex was released I know I've way behind times.  Heck my first and only game in the current edition was showing up at a tourney and asked to run a store army of grey knights.  The horror I had to endure from that but I want to get back into the waaagh and time is favoring me now.   

So I'm just saying I'm back and I'll try and get some life back in the my orks.  Plus I hope to see good thing from here again

Good to see you back, I too have been having real life issues, it is amazing how much time gets sucked away from our orks when not only the honey do list grows to the size of the national debt, but other things need fixed as well. I guess it has just been that kind of year.  ;)

As for the new codex, I have found it to be a bit vexing to my speed freaks. I am still working out the bugs to make a viable "stand a chance" of winning list. It seems that the codex got heavily slanted towards the kan wall style of build, so all the foot sloggers are liking it a bit more than I am at the moment.

Hopefully with schools back in session and the tourist season drawing to a close, there will be more activity on this forum as it seemed to come to a screeching halt just about the time that schools were starting again. Orktober seems to have snuck up on us like a grot, and soon it will be time for the saint snick contest again. MY o MY; time flies.

New to warhammer 40k been at it about 3 months now and have a nice sized waaagh going, reading this thread and am interested in how I start and  earn my respect. I'm not the only ork player in my area but I'm the largest, he had switched to chaos since seeing my waaagh/army.
Anywho I like the site and am hoping to get built up.

Welcome to the WoTW, where we all endeavor to krump our enemies, see them flee before us and hear the lamentations of their players...

Things are a little slow at the moment, for some reason the other bosses think that full time work in the RL takes precedence over running the board, silly bosses. I will have to send some of my grots to lean on them, or at least give them a swift kick and run...

This is still the best ork forum on the whole www, and we aim to please. I check this board almost daily (when she who must be obeyed lets me) and and am happy to reply and answer any questions as I can.

I am a speed freak player, so those who have other types of army builds might show up and answer some question if your list seems to fit their category (kan wall, foot slogger, rolling thunder, etc. etc. etc.) I will be happy to convert you into a card carrying member of the kult of speed (aka the KOS) and am always willing to seek prothelizing opportunities.

I would tell you to run away now, as orks are highly addictive, but I see it is too late and you are hooked.

Hope to see you around the boards. No go and krump.

I must confess that while the board was down I didn't work on the bank account at all. And now, the program I was using doesn't work anymore... So, I will have to go to using the old manual methods of bookkeeping until I can get a new program, or something. I will get the newest update to the bank account out as soon as I detangle the mess I have. I know that nobody is threatening any riots or such because of it, but I wanted to let you all know that the teef have not disappeared into cyberspace.

Post by: OD from TV on March 5, 2015, 08:15:10 PM
Well this would be the public place to discuss this.

When Gutstikk formed the committee to discuss attempting a 3rd reformation of an Ork Chain of Command we were getting around a dozen new posts a day in our Ork forum, and after I was nominated and set up the original Way of the Waaaagh Mega thread the post count on our little forum exploded into one of the most active parts of 40konline.  When I had to step down to a more middle management position due to real life issues and AoD took control of the shape of the WotW, we saw the numbers explode into the largest CoC structure on the 40konline site.

This is the legacy that Angel of Death 007, Skeetergod, Dropfall, Deathpepper, adamscurr, and I left the forum.  And it's one that I think not just us as part of the Bosspole command structure is proud of, but all members.

So the question is this; do we want to continue trying to keep this going for the time being with an incredibly small pool of posters, or do we put the WotW on a temporary hiatus until traffic picks up?  I'm posting this here for all to see, because its a real question to the community, or rather the posters left.

Let us know here in this thread if we should try to keep trucking on, and if so then I know I'll work on having a new Orky designed 40k mission each quarter, maybe try to run a model build contest in between those.  Skeetergod and AoD may very well make similar pledges of interesting content that we can plop out, but it's really up to you guys to let us know if we should put in the time and effort (and trust me its a lot harder than it looks!)

Peace

OD et al:  First:  You guys rock!  You knew when to post contests, when to post critiques, and articles and kept the community going on a pretty even keel.  After the great crash of '14-'15, I believe the community went into a shock like state, wondering when/if the forums would come back, if it was worth checking on every week or 2...I did.  I'm glad it's back.  Is it the same as what it was, no; but change and growth is not a bad thing.  If we're slow starting, then so be it.  I for one would really hate to see the forum go into hibernation mode and then come out later with no real interest.  There's interest out there, we've just got to remember why this forum was the best in the first place and try to reach out again.  Let's try to carry on, "keep trucking" as it were...Nothing ventured, nothing gained...

I'm supporting whatever you as the "bosses" decide, like a propa ork, untils I can krump ya from behind...hehehehe.. .Anyway, we've got a good thing here.  Let's try to breathe a little more life into it.  I know we've lost member, like a maple looses leaves in the fall, but I'd like to think we can bounce back.

I for one am also willing to push on with this current Boss Pole of Kommand. I am willing at any time to count teef, keep the books (as it were) and even run a contest or three as needed.

I feel we just got a little stomped there, so we needs to have another go. Orks don't lose, and we ain't givin up now.

We will replace those that we lost, since I will have to do the book keeping manually it will actually be easier to add/delete accounts. I am wondering how long should we wait to see if a member returns before deleting their bank account and add them to the rolls of spoor fodder?

We don't have a green tide of posters anymore, but we do have at least a BW crew, so we needs to sort out who gets to shoot which gun/rockit/kannon/etc. and what not, then get stuck back in.

My proposal is to leave the Green Menace Mega Thread going for now, and set a date for when members must return by, (say July 4th?) and create a new "rank" of the orky equivalent of all the way dead. (sorta like the infinity circuit the Eldar thread has) Then we will clean up the books and the roster and carry on.

Not fully assembled or even remotely painted yet.   I did the lighting one of the LED's was messed up so I had to get a replacement and solder it in.  But on the plus side I got almost a week of the house to myself so I am planning on getting some paint on him.

I know, I'm simply terrible.  But it's been a super long time since I've wanted to see something like this, so I'll return to my pledge to do my best to not pester. 

This is by far and away the best nought I have seen.  I particularly love the 3rd photo (the first of the night lit), the halo effect from the camera not only adds a coolness factor, not only shows what I've pictured in my mind for years as to what a KFF looks like, but it elevates it from a mere WiP photo to a true work of art in both the physical model but in the photography.

On a less aesthetic side, and on the technical side are you utilizing the interior doors as a hiding spot for the power source, and if not where?  I'm also always intrigued as to what type of battery people use when working with LEDs, and with the brightness factor either you got some amazingly luminicent bulbs or you have one heck of a power source for it.

Its not even done yet, but that's already a model to be super proud of AoD!

Coolest Naught Ever!...Now...I'll have to try my hand at LED (Curse you AOD...and all your minions...).  Maybe I should try something simple, like a red light on a trukk or something....
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: angel of death 007 on March 23, 2015, 05:40:33 PM
Yes there is one 9v battery stored in the doors which I left functional. There is no power switch so you just attach the battery.  A total of 10 prewired LED's in which I got to choose the colors.  1 White (spot light) 2 yellow (leg lights) 2 red (head and interior light) 5 green (two head bay, on top for kff, one in arm) all are 3mm LED's.  I did none of the wiring or the resistors they came prewired for a 9v set up.   I read a lot of stuff about LED's prior to doing this project and with resistors and doing math and all that I looked for a prewired kit.  Saw a few different ones, but the ones made for models only had a few smaller LEDs and were more expensive (still a better way to go then doing it all yourself)  Tracing wires was a pain and I had a lot of extra wire which is all kinda bunched up inside the model.   You really have to plan your wiring.  I built my model around the LEDs rather than building the model and adding LED's and put a lot of time into design.  I was going to document everything but with this site being down I just said screw it so there is no step by step. 

If you are going to do this I recommend a lot of PLANNING.   The orkanaut model is awesome for lighting as it has some premade perfect holes (behind head, head bay, ammo feed ports which are great.  Some need a little more work (legs had to trim away a little bit on the bottom during assembly and I did it very clean.  After doing this I would only ever do it again on a model with a lot of interior space.  (Land raiders, rhino, orkanaut, stompa, etc..).  The wiring takes up a lot more space then you realize unless you wanna trim it all down and spend forever trying to solder wire connections.  Also keep LED's away from rare earth magnets reguardless of what they say on the internet.  They are morons and they absolutely do create a magnetic field capable of frying an LED either that or I had a defective one but still. 

I honestly don't know if I would do it again, the Orkanaut model you don't have to worry too much about where wires go so it is a very forgiving model to work with, but not something that is totally forgiving.  The main reason why you need to assemble around LED's is because if they are prewired you need holes big enough for the led to fit thru.  It is far easier to modify joints around models then drilling big holes and having to fill them with something later.  Which if you don't plan you will have to do.  3 MM LED's are HUGE..  and honestly I would probably recommend going smaller if you can.  The bigger the LED the more planning is required.

I hope I semi inspired some but don't rush this project if you take it on.  There are many things to consider.  Study your build sheet for the model and think the whole time  wiring.

Well, I won't be able to match that one, a great LED kan. Makes my MP3 playing stompa look amateurish.

However, I did make my new war boss:

A simple head swap and a stolen axe from the wolf dread kit, and presto; ead whoppa carrying boss. Comes in cheap as he only has heavy armor, TL shoota, and ead whoppa. With a 1 in 6 chance to insta kill his opponent it is not as good as a klaw, but cheaper in points and allows him to swing at initiative.

Still painting the fine details, but the bulk painting is done. I add paint to him after every game, so only about once a week. We have been playing a lot of 500 point games at my local, as there are so many players that the size of the game has to be small so that the other players get a chance to use the tables for a game before the store closes. Everyone knows Saturday night was meant for fightin'.  ;D

Well, someone has to be the hard case, so tag I am it.

This is a NOTICE, any ork member who has only ONE toof in the bank account, you are in danger of being deleted.  Please return to the forum and post that you want to remain an ork, and you will be safe from deletion.

IF, by August 15th of 2015 there are no replies, then anyone with only one toof, and no posts since the site meltdown, will be deleted from the bank account, and removed from the rolls.

Those members with two or more teef, your account will be deducted one toof a week. When you reach zero you will be deleted. Members with titles higher than boy will be added to the new list of "MIA" orks, title of said list to be determined, maybe spoor, squig fodder, or something similar.

Hopefully you all get this, as the auto poster reply notifier what not, will send an email to you so that you will see that the site is back up and running.

NOTICE SENT: now get off your duffs and get stuck back in.

For those of you who have replied to stay stuck in you will see a "copyright" symbol next to your title. At first it was just going to be a "c" in parentheses but my Excel program made them into the copyright symbol so I just left it. Either way it means you are confirmed and your teef are safe.

Although, I did kinda forget to give myself a copyright symbol, oh well, next week.

In the URL box at the top of the page just hit "copy" and then in the WoTW thread tell us your batrep is done and then "paste" the link after it.

Like This:

Hey all, just put up a new batrep, you can find it here:

You can find your name and account balance there. As a reminder those with the copyright symbol are verified members, those without it will be deducted one toof a week, and when the account is at zero they will be deleted. Those who had titles will be added to the list of missing presumed dead (title still not determined), starting August 15th.

ON the other foot, if you did something to earn teef, and don't see your earnings posted, give me a PM and we will get you your teef tootie sweetie.

Lets get our green tide rebuilt and get the waaagh going again. The universe has been too safe lately with not enough green krumping happening.

The Bank Account:  HERE  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=210596.msg2571701#msg2571701) has been updated.

You will notice the countdown deductions have begun. Those with a zero balance will be deleted from the bank account and the rolls. Those with a title of boy or higher will be added to the "All The Way Dead" list. We still haven't figured out what to do with awol/missing orks, so we will get back to you on that.

If you want to stay on the active list all you have to do is either post on this thread that you are not all the dead, or send me a PM to do the same thing and your account will no longer be deducted and you will remain an ork.

For those of you who are still orks, if you did something that is eligible to earn teef, just let me know and I will get your teef deposited toootie sweeetie (thats french for right quick).

Well is has been a few weeks since I have been on due to some RL issues, and I notice that nobody else has either. So, am I the last ork standing?

I guess the new rules and the new codex have destroyed the orks, something that couldn't be done by other armies, but death by nerf is just hard to accept.

I don't know if it was the new rules, but the 40k community at my local dwindled down to almost nothing and now my LGS has gone out of business. That means for me no place to play. Added to the pain is the forum now seems dead too.

Talk about having to quit cold turkey...  :o

 Sad :( . My newest project was the orks (since I wanted them for more than a decade), but even working on them I feel no desire playing the actual game. I enjoy painting and converting them and am still collecting some kits that I think will soon go the way of the dodo, but have very little gaming activity other than that. I had some thoughts about heavily modifying and playing some of the older 4th ed scenarios (ork kommandos kill-team, raid and defense missions etc.), but when it will happen...

 On the topic of nerf - the new mob rule is very punishing to a starting player with a small model count. The coolest new kits are also pretty expensive (it surely feels that gw are emulating apple). I can see why one wouldn't want to play orks, but instead collect them.

Orks don't give up. They might go into hibernation, but they are never down for the count. We need to drive some traffic to the board and I'm proposing a contest. We are generating some good conversation over on the eldar side and with the right incentives, I think we can do so here. We have had some modelling/painting contests that have done well, but the participants tend to think out, as it trails on and they don't generate much talk. I think a list building competition might build some interest. It's free for people to join in and doesn't take a lot of real life commitment. If you want me to help organize something, I'd be more than happy to.
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: SKEETERGOD on October 31, 2015, 08:08:49 PM
Well it is nice to know that the forum here isn't all the way dead. I will continue to be the orkountant until I get fired.

I still have 15,969 points of orks that are assembled and painted, (and not a single deff dread, kan, or grot gun. Well ok, just one meka dread. But it has never played) as well as close to another 2k or so of models still needing finishing.

Looks like I am just collecting now. I think I will have to procure one of those glass cases so I can put all my models on display.

Maybe the next codex the orks will be more playable, and if I can find a new LGS that isn't more than a two hour drive away. I will just have to wait and see.

As for this forum, maybe a modeling contest is in order. Since it seems that most of us orks have been reduced to collecting until the next waagh can get started, it seems like a good idea to build our armies to get ready.

So, shall we try a general modeling contest, where you enter whatever you want, or shall we go for a specific genre such as everybody assembles and paints a squad of something (like burna boys or tank bustas, etc. etc. etc)?

As for a list building contest, since I can't play test those lists to check viability, I would not be able to judge them as to their play worthiness. Maybe a bit more thought on that line is in order as well.

Let me know, we will see if we can breath some life back into the ork forum.
Title: Re: Way of the Waaagh: The New Green Menace Mega Thread
Post by: dog_of_war on November 1, 2015, 06:30:51 AM
With a list building contest it would be mostly theoretical and based on past experience. The main reason I suggest one is that it takes less real life commitment to participate and encourages traffic by creating dialogue. The lists are created on a theme and a poll is run where the community then votes on it, no judging or play-testing necessary. I've thought that we could maybe start off with a versus list ie bestvork list against let's say eldar. That way we can encourage feedback from non-ork players as well.

I'm all up for a painting/modeling contest as well. I just think it might be a little restrictive in participation.

As for display cases, it's totally the way to go. Got mine from Ikea for $60 CAD and I can display about 4000 points of orks on four shelves.

Well then, the first list building competition is over. Here are the teef awards. They will show up in the next bank account update.

SKEETERGOD: 5 for posting list, 3 for duplicate truck boy units (first one dont count) and 4 for duplicate coptas. Taking off my boots to use toes to count that comes out to a total of 12 teef.

dog-of-war: 5 for posting, 3 for duplicate grot units, 1 for duplicate kan units, 1 for duplicate dreads, 1 for duplicate meks. Unless my toe moved out of the way that comes to a total of 11 teef.

OD From TV: 5 for posting, 3 for duplicate grot units, 2 for duplicate trucks, 1 for duplicate MaNs, 1 for duplicate dakka jets, and 2 for sneaky great idea of dakka jets in a small list. That comes to a total of 14 teef.

Ork E Nuff: 5 for posting, but -1 for not posting the link in the thread, 2 for duplicate kans, and 2 for great idea of burna boys in a truck. That comes out to a total of 8 teef.

That means the winner of the list building competition is OD from TV (with the most teef) so we all need to scowl smile at him and add our congrats at him for winning the first ever ork list building competition.

The holidays are over, however, there is a secret ork holiday coming up. So the contest will continue until the secret holiday gets here.

*blows a fine layer of dust off*
Woo that got a bit dirty.

When we formed the WotW around 6 or 7 years ago, we didn't forsee how it would grow, change, and evolve.  And now, with the chance of a new codex revitalizing not only the army, but possibly this little corner of the web that some of us have called home... its exciting.

So in honor of the US election primaries, here is my 'Campaign' Pledge.  When the Orks receive a fair Codex you will see increased activity on the boards, new Competitions, new Special Missions, a return of Unit of the Month, and overall we will reforge the WotW to new glory!

Peace

Dang.  It was "No Longer Available" yesterday, greyed out and all, but now like a case of [redacted] its back and just won't go away.  I am the saddest puppy ever.

With any hope they'll release some new form of rules with the Vedros sets that are slated to come out soon, and at least with Vedros we get a new still unseen Wartrakk mini.  Yes it'll be snap fit, but at least that's something we've been asking for forever.

Kind of disheartening if you think about it, that's well over $10,000 worth of models, paints, airbrush and gear... all of it, but I'm slowly working my way back to getting all my supplies and models replaced, very slow process mind you.

Considering the current ork codex will be useless, which lets be honest it pretty much was the moment it was printed and rumor that there may not be anymore codexes... please God let this be true...

I will say this.   I think Orks and all armies for that manner will be playable.  In my mind it almost has like a 3rd edition feel where everything was in the main rulebook even basic stats for all miniatures in each army. 

I am hoping we don't need cards, books, codex's, supplements, or formation print outs to play the game.   Hopefully everything will be online for free like they did when they released AOS.  Instantly making your current armies playable.

Well, that sounds interesting. Just when I was starting to get the hang of this edition...

I agree that free and GW are two opposing poles of the spectrum, but maybe their sales have slipped a bit and so they have to drum up new addicts players, so to get them hooked started they offer some free stuff.  ;)

I will, of course, still have 20k points of orks that will need adapting to the new way of being red and going faster. We shall see..

After months of not having a computer after the last one died, I'm glad to be back online just before they drop a new edition.

Do you think the ork codex will be better with 8th?

Considering the current ork codex will be useless, which lets be honest it pretty much was the moment it was printed and rumor that there may not be anymore codexes... please God let this be true...
By all the Gods in 40k, fantasy, sigmar, and earth let us have playable Orks again.

Everything I've read so far suggests a massive reset like they did for 3rd which makes me excited and happy.  Of course I've done less then an hour of research, and some things I've heard I'm hoping is rumor mongering.  Like individual damage charts for all vehicles and MCs, or a removal of templates from the game. My big fear is the game will bring back more 2nd Ed [censored] which has been a major trend starting in 5th (or did duels, I mean challenges come back in 6th? I can't keep editions straight anymore).

I'm majorly nervous about the reintroduction of a Movement stat, I'm hoping, nay PRAYING that Orks don't get hit down to a 4" move (the move stat of Orks from 2nd Ed, while majority of Nids had 6" move stat).  Variable move stats are interesting, but I have that nagging habit of looking from the 3rd Edition perspective and how making movement a static 6" across the board for Infantry made the game faster paced (no longer looking up stats during the Movement Phase) and more balanced.

I'm sure I'd be more pessimistic about 8th Ed if we were still playing with the 4th Edition rulebook.  Or in other words, if I felt the current codex was playable I wouldn't want the carpet taken out from under me.  But Wooo!  I want to play Orkz again!

Anyone know of any major rules changes affecting the orks?
Ditto to this!  If anybody hears anything please post to keep us all in the loops!

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!

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...

The rules are out (now sit down before you read the next part)

And Free! (See why I told you to sit!!!)

Of course, not the rules for each army, but just the core rules.

Make sure to check out my thread about speed freaks.

The New Speed Freak List and Tactiks... (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=230298.0)

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 (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=230551.msg2767046#msg2767046)

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 (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=230551.0)

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  ;)

Allllrightythen, It is now a new year! So, for all of you who got a new toy/warband/paint set/biker gang for the holidays, let us show them off.

Post a picture or three of your new stuff and how you are going to use it to krump your enemies, see them flee before you, and hear the lamentations of their players.  ;D

Well now, it seems that this board has been decimated by the new rules. Since there release the activity on this board has dried up to almost nothing.

So, I am posting here and wondering am I the last ork standing?

In theory, anyone subscribed to this thread should get an email about a new post, so you should be able to reply.

As for me, I have only been playing small games. Kill team and lunch hammer type games. (that is 100 to 500 points) The orks are still fun to play.

Therefore (I know a big word for an ork) I am calling out to any surviving orks out there to see if we can resurrect the waaagh.

Hey Skeet... Just kinda got out of the habit myself... I still gaze longingly at my orks and remember days when 40k made sense! :)

I don't know if you guys have noticed, but Roboknee77 has been posting semi-regular batreps for about a year or so.

Hey Skeeter, I'm still kicking around.  I'm playing games with my local group of Wyddr, McComas and Uncle Tungsten.  You can check out the battle reports Wyddr (Thanks for the shout out) and I post to see how my Waaagh is going.

Thanks for the quick replies. I was expecting to see crickets... Glad to see we are at 4% survival

Roboknee77; I just read some of your batreps, Good Stuff! Glad to see an active ork army still exists.

Thanks Skeeter.  :)

I've mostly settled into a shooty Bad Moons army but want to grab the new Wartrike and see what I can do with a mobile army.  I've still got bikes, trukks and deffkoptas from 7th edition glory sitting around waiting to be used.

Ok, inspired by Roboknee77 I have done my first batrep in a long time. Sure it is "lunch hammer" but it is still fun.

Nice write up Skeeter.  You did a great job describing the action.  I really liked the little kicker at the end of the Nob picking up the Headwhoppa and calling himself Da Boss.  :)
