  • This is madness?! THIS IS LINUX!!!
With my Imperial Guard army nearing it's completion, I have turned my attention to my next army. One of the ideas was an all-hunterz Feral Orkz army:





Edit: New list posted below.






What do you think?

If I'm not mistaken you need a Warboss to lead your army.

Also just a little orkish for you, Big Shooterz is Big Shootas, and Rocketz is Rokkit Launchas.
Sweet As.

I thought that too, but I've checked the list a number of times and the warboss doesn't have a 1 in front of it or anything, and it doesn't say you have to take him, so... *shrugs*

Also, I've decided to swap the wyrdboy's Big shooter and Boar for Rocket, 'Eavy Armour and Shiny Bitz. He's supposed to go in one of the squads, so the boar is kinda useless.
And I've also found I love Rokkit Launchas too much, so I've swaped another 2 big shootas for them.

the missing number in the codex is a misprint, you need a warboss.

if you look in the ork codex under the stats for warboss it is in italicized words(at least for mine it is) "your army must include a warboss"

Chain swords are awesome.  The only way would be cooler is if they had tits and were on fire.

hmm with the wyrd boy and his nasty strength 8 phsycic attack, why would you give him a rokkit launcha?

keep in mind also unless he is accompanied by a body guard he is making last man standing checks every turn...

its a great unit! just wondering these couple of things : )

it also looks like you would be buying 5 boxes of boys for this army since they are all squads of 16.  good economically, but you may also wanna throw in some nobs.  they can do some serious damage.

Yes Rule No. 1 in an Ork army, always take a character, be it Nob, Mek, or Slaver. Always take one! They will make there points back and more.

hehe its not a rule.... its just something learned through experience... they definatly earn their points back! Since they are upgrades they can't be targeted with the New assault rules in close combat the way independent characters can : )

Actually, the rules say:
Quote
Despite being an Indipendant Character, unaccompanied Wyrdboyz are dreated as one-model units and must test for Last Man Standing at the start of each turn.
So I'm pretty sure that's just if he's all alone, but I'll be attaching him to the Huntas. If this isn't true thoug, I'll just get 5 of the brutes from one of the other squads to ue as Minderz.

As to why give him rokkit launcha when he has Gork 'll Get 'Em, well, it doesn't have an Ap, so the rokkit launcha is good against SMurfs and Necrons and stuff.

Also, I don't really have the Pts for Nobz. And they aren't really that great in the huntas, where they (hopefully) won't be seeing much combat.

unit size should always be 4X+1 (eg. 5, 9, 13, 17, 21, 25, 29) because it gives you an extra wound before you have to test for leadership. I realize that its not really a big deal because of our check size rule and its not like you are going to break if you take a few casualties but after you take 8 or 9 wounds it is going to statistically give you a little better results.

perhaps move some points around and make the squads 17, 17, 17, 17, 13 or something. just a small way to tweek a little more out of the unit based on game mechanics.
would you like to be, err... SEE my trophy rack?

there is a very interesting way to think about this... break things into math.   while it isn't as much fun it is effective for tourny lists.
