I'm not dead yet, sorry I haven't been around in quite some time, life got in the way yet again and I seem to have lost everything I had for ALL my games except my Blood Angels. 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.

Its easy to get disheartened Rayvn, the hard part is to steel yourself against that storm of troubles brewing just outside the gates.

In other words (or rather less eccentric and convoluted phrases), Best of luck at getting it all back.  If there's any hard to find things, don't hesitate to ask, someone here might be able to give you an assist.

Peace

Well then, my wife is very happy now... :'(

I went to a GW store here in Orlando and nothing new for the orks and so I left without buying anything...

So, I must wait and wait some more :P

I know!!!

So, I have had to console myself with building stuff that is in my to do/bit box. Finally started to put together my spider rider "bikers". Been meaning to do that project for a while. For some reason it just isn't as fun as putting together new stuff... ::)

Well I have some good news, I've replaced the airbrush, compressor and hose, and got The Army Painter Mega Paint set, now all I have to do is start replacing the models, or just start fresh and get new models.... Not sure how to tackle that obstacle yet. I know I can get stuff on the cheap on the web but want to support my LGS as well.

WAAAAAAAAGGGGHHHH!!!!  A new member. I have added your name to the bank account, hopefully 007 or OD come by soon and add you to the roster.

Make sure to add some picts of your army in the "Faces of the Waagh" thread.

Glad to have you aboard, even if you don't have enough red trucks... but there is still time for the KoS to work its way into your blood...

I kept forgetting to post here to get some teef for my Eldar vs. Ork batrep, which is here.  The majority of my games have been against Wyddr so he usually posts the reports.  This one was against a friend of ours, so first Batrep.

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.

That sure would be nice... But free and GW don't normally coincide in the same sentence... :)

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..

Anyone know of any major rules changes affecting the orks? I know it's speculation at this point, but what are we expecting... I've pretty much all but quit playing at this point so the only place to go is up! :)

The only thing I can say is that it seems very likely orks will hit everything in assault on 3s.

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!

Peace

You can find the official "rumors" here:
Warhammer 40,000

The orks have a section on them:
https://warhammer40000.com/setting/explore-the-factions/#xenos-forces

To make it even more amazing is it even has a new FAQ:
https://warhammer40000.gw-hub.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2017/04/New-Edition-of-40K-FAQ.pdf

Now, we have to wait.... Something we orks are not too good at.
