First off I'm not really sure how the campaigns work, like do I play you guys somehow or find willing people here to play me or what?

You find people at your local who are willing to play battles against your orks, and be patient enough while you take pictures and notes for battle reports.

That aside I kinda like the painted army thing you could make it like the sector thing where you get points or whatever for different categories like fully painted, half painted and so on and so forth, people with say 10% army painted would have their army appearance "show" against the others in that category.

I like the idea of bonus points for painted armies, or like the KoN campaign; noteriety points. We will have to discuss that feature in further depth. Maybe add in some sort of toof award for mostly painted, painted, painted good, etc. etc. etc.

But not knowing for sure how it works, I have serched for examples, I can't be for sure what else to add. If we do plays games at local clubs then I say special scenarios is always fun we can always print them out to show our opponent to agree to. The guys I play with are always more than willing to do something new and different, a change of pace from the Dawn of War/Annihilation

I too like the different scenarios, and am a big fan of the Battle Missions book. I also have the last three rule books that also have different missions in them, so am able to find lots of alternatives to the standard 1 in 3 roll off with the current rule book.

So we now have added in the different missions aspect, so if any of you have a favorite mission that you would like everyone to play; go ahead and send it to me, and it might end up in the next campaign.

YES! (does really ugly looking kung foo move) Promotions... Those who got them really deserved them. I think they are all great members of our forum and are a krumpy asset to this here green menace (even if some of them are not members of the kult of speed..... Yet).

Congrats to you all.

Congrats to all promotions and welcome to the Bluu side for the Newbs. yes I said Bluu, as my Dudes are Bluu in da Phaes, as not all Orks like to be Green.

Cheers, and on a side note after some 4 losses to Dark Eldar in the past month-ish I finally got my revenge with a complete massacre of the opponent yesterday. Mind you I only had my Boss and a couple Knobs left at the end; but not one of those pointy eared barstiches made it off the battlefield alive - we crated them all up and will hold the mass burial at a later date. Condolences would be sent to their families etc; but we intend on stomping their guts out next, so we will tell them face to face as we look into their cold dead eyeballs.

Arraghhhhhhhhhhhhh  Da Big Bluu Dude had a good day.

I'll sign up for this, I guess.

I'd put it off because I'm having the worst (time wise) academic year ever, which has been making me taking longer than I'd like to paint/play with/assemble/etc everything. But I think I'm pretty close to 750 points now, which should be enough to have a baby game or two (I was originally planning on not playing until I'd painted everything but.... that looks like it'll take me too long. I think I'll just go ahead to 1000 points, and then hold the list till it's all painted so I can at least get in a few small games. I do have my first squad of 20 "kind of" painted up now, at least. And my boss with some nobz too.).

I don't know exactly what type of army I want, mainly because I want them all. So I can see myself with a very large horde someday, that would give me a choice of how to make a list for each game. The general idea is to go infantry heavy though, and I think I'll starting with a kan wall type and go from there.

Welcome...

More tends to be a good thing with orks...  My motto is, why take one, when you can take three, or nine! lol

Starstrider.... welcome to the green side, you have been added and should receive your title shortly.

Death pepper did a great job with our unit of the month...  kommandos has been a hot topic so make sure to check this out...   March is Kommando Month  It has also been updated and included in our first page of the WotW.

Also we had some really nice shiny promotions...   so maybe some of your newly promoted people will be seeing/ messaging Skeetergod to get some equipment to go with your titles....

I'm saving up for something, so no purchases for me yet ;)

I like the look of these monthly discussions, but unfortunately as I don't use Kommandos (but have considered them), I can't really contribute.

The bank account is updated, and we are now at 46 members. WHoot!!

As for the monthly discussion stuff, even though you don't have/use a unit, it is still good to know about them as you may one day aquire them for your next wave. Thats the kool thing about orks, you don't have to start a new race when you want to change your play style, you just get some different ork models and presto; new army. Tired of moving a bazillion models of your green tide? Then get trucks and go speed freaks, etc.

I believed I signed up here and maybe lost the paperwork or something, oh well. So I'm putting my x on the dotted line. I do have a couple of questions though. When I get to posting my "how-tos" do post them in this thread the painting and conversion area ork area?

Rayvn70 I have you in the list and all???  if it is painting related.. then post in the painting forum, if it is a conversion how to then post in the konversion forum.   You can post here and provided a link so that the ork community sees it. 

All topics should be posted in their appropriate area or else the mods will move them.

Yeller Dizapline welcome to our ranks.  You have been added to our list and should receive your title shortly.

Rayvn70... well you might have been one of those that Skeetergod was sneaking under the radar.  When I audited him I about had to use the boss pole.  But I think we got all of you that were under the radar back on the map. 

Maybe it has been Mork who has been taking all my teef as well...   grrrr.
