Skar Boys are regular boyz and some greenstuff.
Deathball, the new game of bloody basketball, 40k style!

+++Excerpt from Last Chaos/Space marine game, commentator: Inquisitor Khalheed "The Purgator" Qhor, Ex-Deathball player+++

Chaos vs Space Marine grudgematch today ended 23-19 when Brother Grazieel decimated the chaos team with a heavy bolter.

Afterwards the Chaos Coach Zhuriel the Damned stated "If we weren't ideologically in favor of cheating we'd complain about this""

It's easy to make skarboyz. Just take a knife to their faces and scar them. You could also give them all caps or helmets (tamiya models have good hats). Lastly paint them differently then your boys. A german cap on an ork boy looks really cool.

They are powerful, with their high strength they can eat hordes of marines. I've seen one unit of 20 tearing apart a blood angels honour guard of 10 marines.

Well there is a chance that the skarboyz could win, one they out number the honor guard by 10, if the orks have sluggas and a choppa they get +1 attack and if they charged they'd get another which gives them 4 attacks each. Sooooo they'de have a chance. Althought the honor guards stats are better the orks have greater numbers. But it would be close, VERY close.

But you have to remember most people wont just use one squad against another, they'll be pelting the orks with whirlwinds and other ranged weapons while attacking with the sqauds.

I say take huge (even bigger than regular ork) arms from Rat Ogres and use those! They'd be rockin'!

Using massive arms can have a great affect. I use Ork arms painted human flesh tones on my Berzerker Retinue. It looks great.

The difference between a max. points cost skarboyz mob and max. points honour guard squad might be slightly different due to stats. but skarboyz are better in my book. It would be quite possible for them to wipe out the honour guard, but remember it all comes down to the fall of the dice. You win some, you lose some.
