Hey guys, i need some help with ORKs!
« on: October 13, 2002, 11:38:25 AM »
I just started playing 40k, and after reading through the codexs at my local store, i found that i am an ork player at heart, now having went out and bought a small army i was wondering if anyone could help me figure out how to feild them effectively.

1 warboss in powerarmor
1 mekboy
6 burna boyz
48 slugga boyz
10 warbikes
2 wartruks
2 warbuggies
1 lobba
1 Zzap gun
2 tankbustas
4 gretchin
1 Dreadnaught

i just started a week ago and all i have found i can do is paint really well, or kill my friends Necron army(he is also a beginer)

my typical strategyis to attack in waves right up the middle following my warbikes with my boyz, mixing burnas in with 2 mobs of 20 each and then having a burna mob with a mekboy in it with a kustom forcefeild. (the burna mob is in the middle of the other two so i can get an effective forcefeild area.

the lobba sits back and shoots, the Zzap gun moves up once and with its range does pretty well in almost no cover

the dreadnaught i just finished building and haven't used it yet.

what should i do against people with marines (i hate them!!!)
Chain swords are awesome.  The only way would be cooler is if they had tits and were on fire.

Wow dude you are rich. I just started my ork army a few months ago and only have 16 slugga boyz, a warbike and an unpainted Warboss. Well anyways I have really just learned how to beat Marines. I've beaten two Dark Angels players in which 1 has 2 years experience and the other with about 2 more months experience than I. One was a Armor-oriented army and the other is an assault oriented type. Burnas and Power Claws are absolutely necessary in fighting Marines! Take as many as you can. Against Marines (or anyone for that matter) you need to get into Close Combat as quickly as possible otherwise you'll get blasted away. Ork Weapons are too great against the Marines with a few exception that won't win you the game. Wartrukks are excellent because you can get them into assault on Turn 2 and that's where you want em. Use the warbuggies as a distraction and a way to block you're opponent's Line of Sight. I absolutely friggin love warbikes. Dude with your ten you'll fire 30 friggin shots! Oh so great!  ;D
I play Speed Freeks with lots of stand ins for now. When i mass enough of an army I'll go into the regular foot slogging orks and develop plans to beat marines all over again.

sply: Yes he can fire up to sixty shots in one turn if he assaults in the same turn he shoots. Big shootas on bikes are Range 18" Strength 5 AP 5 Assault 3.

Frgsinwntr: "Ork Weapons are too great against the Marines with a few exception that won't win you the game." I mean to say Ork Weapons are too weak against the Marines.

Oh and one more thing, give your warboss a cybork body; useful against power weapon attacks.

I have played 40k for about 5 or 6 years. I have found out that orks best weapons over SM is their points cost. As an ork player myself and my brother being a SM player we have used many different army lists and I have found that nothing wastes the points cost of a terminator than a huge mob of slugga boyz with a nob. Don't try to out shoot him as bs2 doesnt help. The zzap gun is a good weapon but your forte is cc. A souped up warboss and retinue mounted in a buggy and backed up by a mob of trukk boyz will put the wind up your opponents. Put a mekboy in your retinue and give him the force field. Trust me you'll need it. Then send in waves of slugga boyz with grotz running in front of them. Don't care about your grotz, If you do you might as well collect a different army.

I haven't found any cheap grots. Grots where I live are $4 a piece. I'm not getting them for quite some time, quite a very long time.

Your Zapp and lobba cant work.....  unless they are seperate choices because if you look in the rulebook it says 1 - 3 in every squad all have to be the same :( so i would convert the lobba probably but your choice ;D hope im right but im usually not.....

Big Shootas on bike are twin-linked so it's only 30 re-rollable. It sounds like many of you haven't ever had to face the killer of most Ork Armies. Vanilla SM with just tones of normal 15 pt SM. You kill  and kill and there is still more.

Get another Dread or 3 killa kans.
Convert a battlewagon and put the zzap on that.
Mega Armoured Warboss & Retinue on wartrukk. (Death with wheels)
Wartrukk mob to back up
Put mega blasters on youre wartrakks (they make big dents in SM when they hit)
