Ork List Building Competition 1k points Main Thread
« on: November 3, 2015, 07:48:31 AM »
This is the first competition of the Ork list building series. Since in my experience the new meta for a fun game the size went down to 1k points to avoid the serious spamming that went on in higher point games.

Later competitions will have higher points, so for those of us with huge armies just wait for it.

Now I stole some rules from the eldar forum as I have never run a list building contest. If the eldar dudes want to cry plagiarism I will of course deny everything, as orks don't even know the meaning of that word (too many syllables).

The competition and rules

Build a take on all comers ork list of 1,000 points.
 
1. When writing the list, please make sure that it is legible and easy to read. Also please include the points total, plus a short break down of the tactics you plan on using with the list.
2. No allies allowed, ork units only.
3. The list must be of the Bound type.
4. Post your army list in a new thread on the Ork board and link to that thread by replying to this thread, with the link only and a short note that you have submitted a list. Please only use this thread for links of list submissions.
5. After posting your list, you may edit it based on comments you receive from the community, but only in your thread and not on this one.
6. To avoid mod deletion follow the rules for listing units and points, so just total points for a unit with a sum at the bottom for the whole army.
7. Then for those who may not have a clue about orkishness tactics, please add a little bit about how you intend to use the units and the army as a whole.

After a period of time, to be determined randomly by the grots in my truck repair facility, I will close the contest and figure out a way to determine teef earnings.

I will create a new thread for every new contest,and that will be specifically for the new contest, and we will branch out to themes, builds, specific missions, etc. etc. etc.

Looking forward to seeing your lists. Now, get to work! ;D

1000 points is an awesome start and is harder than it sounds. You should be able to assume you won't be facing any flyers or lords of war at that point level, except in the most extreme circumstances. I'll definitely be getting my finkin cap on tonight.

Hmm, It would seem that Gork and Mork have awoken me at the correct time, there's a competition on!

Now I stole some rules from the eldar forum as I have never run a list building contest. If the eldar dudes want to cry plagiarism I will of course deny everything, as orks don't even know the meaning of that word (too many syllables).
Rather then deny anything, lets just admit to being in character, we just Looted the rules!

Army posting linky will be updated here after I write an army up

Peace

Yes oh great one, you are right. Just shows how long I have had my face buried in the bank account that I forgot to be a bit more overbearing and domineering. I have kicked a few grots to get my blood pumping back into my head, so all is better now.

Now, where is that list of yours? The grots are making a clock, and when it starts ticking you will run out of time. Bwahahahahaha (snort).

If only I had a few more points, those grots would be riding around in trukks.

Oh well, here's the list. Let's see if OD and OEN can step up to the plate with us heavy hitters.   ::)

Great one?  If anything Skeetergod you are the great one keeping all the accounting for all these years!  And for putting another comp together!

As for the list, and the ticking sorry to keep them grots working, I've experienced the craziest couple weeks ever having to emergency jump into a show, getting thrown in as an emergency singer for a friend's underground album, driving my roommate around due to her totaled car, and loosing the internet for the past couple days cause the roofers didn't know what that cord did.

But none of that really matters, I got my list up!

Well my list isn't really about being a heavy hitter, its mostly tactical instead of krumpy, but don't let that fool ya!  I put a good amount of time into writing it, and I've even been playtesting it a bit while my internets been down!

In truth I look forward to reading everyone's entry, although atm I've gotta grab my jacket and make it down to the gallery, the life of an underground actor artist musician is surprisingly busy this Nov.

Peace

OK all you orkses, the grots just got the clock built. After filling the fuel tank with some super high test squig oil, we are going to fire it up and see how loud it ticks.

What that means is you better get your submissions in right quick, (thats tootie sweetie in french) and that means soon. Once we get the clock running the contest will be over as soon as the clock runs empty.

Ok, the grots got the clock running with lots of noise and smoke. It was a great thing to behold, then the throttle got stuck and the engine overspeeded and the hands of the clock flew off.

While we go and look for the hands of the clock to put them back on, the clock is still ticking, we just don't know how much time is left.

What this means is that this contest will be over soon. Get stuck in and get your list posted.

After finding some of the parts stuck through the treads of the big bosses wagon, we decided to just make some new ones. After going through a few grot volunteers to get the new long hand part on, the engine blew and the clock stopped. So, that means this contest is now over, and it is time to see who gets some teef.

OF course the toof awards will take some time to figure out, I gotta clean up the work shop. After all these grot and engine parts laying all over the place get swept up, I will find a corner to count out some teef and let you all know how much you made.

Now, keep them codexes out. There will be a special "holiday" contest coming up, and you will need that book to participate. (whew, another big word)

OKy dokey, I finally got the grots to show me where I hid the teef, and so time to hand some out.

A good start to a new practice.
I am awarding teef with a not so scientific formula. 5 teef just for doin a list, 1 toof for duplicate units (more is more) and 2 teef for good idea.

You can find out how many teef you snagged in the WoTW thread here:
