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.

Roboknee77, if you look at your titles, you have been upgraded to an ork boy. Congrats and keep up the good work.

Ok, inspired by Roboknee77 I have done my first batrep in a long time. Sure it is "lunch hammer" but it is still fun.

Enjoy:    Prize Patrol

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.  :)

Well then all you orks, the holiday is here. (or almost here but close enough for ork shooting)

so, if you has any new stuff, make sure to post it in the modeling thread or start a new thread and include a link here, so we can all look at it and drool or laugh or be jealous or be critical.

That is all, now kick some grots and get your meks to work and get ready for a new year of orky goodness...

Alllllrigtythen, it has been a month since this thread has seen any action. Soooo, I am wondering if all you other orks out there have been fended off by pesky umiies or pointy ears or other stuff that seems to not recognize that orks are the rulers of the 40k universe?

If so,, then I guess I will have to start a Waagh to come out and rescue you. Let me know if you are still krumping or just waiting for a new bigger warboss to show you the way of Gork and Mork.

Hey Skeeter!

My boyz have been regrouping after the last thumpin' by Wyddr's Deathwatch in our campaign.  They've been licking their wounds and kickin' around some poor grots. Before the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years holiday corridor I did play two games for fun against McComas' Iron Hands. I never got around to posting the battle reports, I was feeling kind of burned out around that time.

Both were Maelstrom games.  The first one was a closer game, it went a full 5 rounds, maybe more. I took an early lead in points but McComas pulled back and in the end I had one Tractor Cannon left that was running out of the deployment zone so I could score an extra point.  It was pretty fun and funny.  Pics can be found here: Orks vs. Iron Hands Maelstrom - Album on Imgur

The second game was much more brutal.  I think this one was right after the Codex dropped.  McComas smashed my Boyz in both points and kills, tabling me in the end.  Pics can be found here: Orks vs. Iron Hands Maelstrom 2 - Album on Imgur

The past two to three months have been sparse on gaming time, it always happens around the holidays.  Things should pick up a little more now and battle should hopefully be little more regular.

Thanks for posting!!! I am happy that I am not the last ork standing. I will check out your batreps drool over the krumping you are giving the umies. 

I looked at the picts, and was glad to see orky goodness krumping away at dem umies. Keep up the good work ;-)

With the virus panic all over the place I am now not working for the next two weeks. (I am a bus driver) so my son with his IG (AM?) army and I are going to play a mega game of 40k.

I will post the batrep on the batrep forum with a link here. There is no point limit, it will be what he has and I will match him. (I have over 25k points of stuff; as counted from last codex point values)

Since this is going to be my first "full size" game since the new rules came out; any advice on what to look out for for sneaky umi tricks would be appreciated.

Not really any advice other than kill the tanks assp. Enjoy it! This virus thing is ridiculous for sure, starting to hit here, I mean the hoarding of butt wipe paper, etc. Not the actual virus. Anyhow enjoy your game with your son.

Good timing since orks just got a new release :) Expect a redonkulous amount of dice coming your way, its bad even in a 2k point game, so make sure you have a buck to roll them all  :)

40k's doesn't scale as well in 8th as it has in the passed, the sheer number of combo's you can pull off and trying to keep track of what units in what detachment and what bonuses each gets, the volume of CP... I'd suggest looking into the APOC game set instead.

or just having lots of smaller games ;)
