ORKS ORKS ORKS
« on: September 18, 2002, 06:48:12 PM »
I have decided I want to start a Kults of Speed army.  Or a Speed Freaks.  I know very little about Orks, I've only played against them once, but I like going really fast.  I don't want Dark Eldar, I already have Eldar, so Kults of Speed/Speed Freeks seem the only way to go!

So can someone tell me how I can get started, what books/WDs I need for their rules, and any good websites about Orks.

to start a KoS army you need the Armageddon codex and the ork codex. there is also a WD article with rules for a Warboss on a warbike. i dont remember which one at the moment but i will look for you unless you have alrdy seen it. the dakka forums are your best bet for tactics and advice i suggest you ask for help there since there is a semi-large ork community there.

You'll need lots of warbikes and/or wartrukks in you want in on a Speed Freeks army. They are pretty much the fastest things you have in that list and they are very important. Check out the Ork Board on 40k.ca for some more help.

You need the BBB, as the weapons are not listed in the ork codex.  Then you need the ork codex, and codex armaggedon.  Buy Two ork BF sets plus two more trucks.  Buy one bike and an ork character to convert to warboss on bike.  Then go to the ork forum on 40k.ca for tips, tricks, and tactics. (do orks have tactics?) Remember they are comicle so if you do not have a sense of humor the orks are not for you.

i really dont like the "comical" role that Orks are given…they really dont seem that funny when they are bashing oppent your terminator armor with those damn choppas.

As for advice.  

You wanted speed, you got speed :D  Use lots of wartrukks.  I would forget about heavy weapons, just get into assault by the second round and you should be okay.

Attack targets of opportunity.  Remember that speed freaks are not nearly as numerous as regular ork armies so don’t go charging straight ahead.

My son plays speed freeks very successfuly.  He has beaten space wolves and armored company.  This weekend he will finally face the nids.  We will see.  If he does well I will but him some more.  He currently has 1800 points worth.

Good for him!  Glad to hear that a young player of the game is doing well.


For I Like Necrons, don't forget to take guntrukks with Zzap Guns for tank busting.  They'd be your best bet for any semblance of heavy weaponry.

There's only two ways this can end, and in both of them, you die.

Speed Freeks would be my choice as a first ork army. That doesnt really tell you what you need but... All you need need is the Armegeddon codex, I think.

Well this weekends battles were mixed.  I played 3k of my Saim Hann and beat the 3k of nids by total annailation, in 6 turns.  I didnt have much left, only my hawks, avengers, and the falcon.  on the other hand.  My son John, did not do well, he used the sit and shoot tactic against nids, as we all know that is what dont work against nids.  Yes almost all the gaunts were killed, but when 3 bunches of 6 warriors, the carnifex, and the tyrant made it into the ork lines, Well lets just say it wasnt pretty.  The nids still had over 1/2 his army left and the orks had two nobs and a flamer at the end of turn 4.  So instead of using the speed freeks advantage of fast attack, he tried to be a space marine with orks.  I hope it was a learning experience. As afterwards He told me he should have taken my advice and took the attack to the nids.  Well, next time.
