Yay my first post in the forums!:w00t:
Alright I was just wondering why we've seen so many Tau vs Nids or Imperium vs Nids and the occasional Eldar vs nids stories and how theyd all fall after a very desperate battle. But where did all the Orks vs Nids stories go? I'd love to see how the Orks would try to fight them off and lose.
I think it'd be a really close battle, purely because i can just see the orks doing stupid things and having them pay off, e.g. Mega Armour Nob running down a hill at some nids, slips, rolls down the hill, crushes half the nids running up the hill.
The battle would just be so damn crazy in fluffy terms that I cringe at thinking about it...:tongue:
A billion chinese can't be wrong - eat rice.
It would be insane. 2 vast hordes of utterly bloodthirsty and fearless warriors charging one another. Both have numbers inexhaustible, and great talent in close combat. It would be epic indeed.
The orks all believe they're much killier and stompier than the bugboyz, and so they'll crump 'em good.
It would make for an interesting battle. If a tyranid host just makes planetfall on an ork world, they'd have a hell of a time getting a foothold; the moment they do, though, and start the wholesale bio-harvesting, the Orks (and their spores) would be in trouble.
I remember taking part in a long discussion (argument) over on the Warseer forums about this. As far as I remember, the conclusion was that if the nids managed to take the first worlds quickly enough they'd have a big enough fleet to win, but if the orks fought for long enough it wold start a gigantic Waaagh which would krump the Hive Fleet, then probably do the same to the Imperium.
Revenge is a dish best served with mayonnaise and those little cheesy things on sticks.

yeah i wonder what grots would do if they see a tyrant
what i cant understand is where the info about the war between the orks and tyranids is, in the tyranid codex it talks about that dumb inquisitor who eventually makes the hive fleet divert into ork space, so where the fluff. I personally think even thoufgh im a tyranid palyer the orks would win, because the amount of worlds the tyranids would have to trake over is to great.
Hmmm orks winning in h2h fluffwise? Just remember what the Orks have gained in assault they've lost in shooting And crappy weapons.
Though I agree that If the Nids take the first few planets and all that biomass of ork bodies is taken the nids would just double their numbers go to the next planet and OMG!
But I really want to know where the stories of the nids vs orks have gone.
