Deployment. The land raider, With the terminators and chaplain deployed as far forward as possible in the middle of the board, and the tactical marines on its right.
The Orks put their battlewagon behind a building, out of LOS of that ded big shooty fingy, and their Shoota boyz behind a wall, with Robork. The trukk was on the far left, and the Tankbustas next to the battlewagon.
Space marines got first turn (damn), and the Land Raider with the Chaplain and Terminators surged forward, while the tactical marines stood their ground on the right hand side of it. The crusader fired at the Shoota boyz - its only target, and killed 1.
The battlewagon moved from behind the building, and lined up the Zzap gun, the Trukk catupulted forward to seek refuge behind a ruin, and the tankbustas aimed vaguely toward the Crusader. The Shoota boyz opened up on the Marines, and the big shootas killed 1, while the normal shootas missed. (yes, all of them) The Zzap gun fired but falied to get through the armour of the Crusader, and the Rokkits shook it.
The 5 man squad moved forward, while the crusader moved 6" forward this time, and readied its multi melta to fire with the machine spirit. It hit, but thanks to the kustom forcefield, only shook it. The marines fired back at the boyz, and killed 2 more.
The battlewagon moved 6" to the right, and readied its Zzap gun once more. The Trukk blasted across the field, and the boyz jumped out, hopefully ready to assault the marines. The Zzap gun and Rikkits failed once more to damage the Land Radier. The boyz failed to kill any marines, then the charge!.......1/2 an inch out.....oh crud.
His land raider pulled up to the wall, and emptied in front of the shoota boyz. His marines filled the Trukk boyz with bolter shots, leaving only 2 standing, while the Terminators bowled into the Shoota boyz and Robork. In what was a bloody combat, every Ork (including Robork) died, with the loss of only 2 Terminators, they lept the other side of the wall, and waited the counter attack from the battlewagon....
Orks dont like it when their warboss dies. And they've also figured out that Space marines dont like it when the Battlewagon drives around the wall, unloads 20 boyz, and the Zzap gun blows apart the Land raider. They also dont like it when the 20 Boyz bowl into the Chaplain + terminators and rip them limb from limb in a hail of uber choppa death. And just to add salt into the wound, at the north end of the field, the Mega armoured Nob piled into a 7 man marine squad and chopped 3 of them up. The rest fled, and regrouped.
All the space marines could do now was hope for some good rolling....they 5 man marine squad shot at the 20 Boyz, but only killed 1 because of the Big mek w/ kustom force field. The rest shot at the nob but failed to scratch him.
The boyz hopped back in the Wagon and riddled the 5 man squad with Big Shoota shots, finishing them off, while the Nob picked up the remains of the Final Marine at the top corner.
Orks win - 1648 points to 352.
not bad for me
What did you think?
I believe it was a good fight. You did very well.
When I first saw the space marine list I said to myself aouch! 7 termies in a land raider for a 1000 pts game... That's a bad move from the part of the space marine commander, especially since he went against orc. Anyway 59 orcs (if I counted well) left no chance to 30 space marines, that's a 2 against 1 ratio and orc are quite good in close combat. It's generally not a great idea to spend half your army on 8 model anyway however strong they can seem.
But again great victory on the orc side.
Yeah, for some odd reason a lot of space marine players believe that terminators will rip up orks with their 2+ armor save and thier exceptional close combat skills. What they don't realize is that orks have horrible armor anyways. It doesn't make much of a difference wheiter or not you can negate that 6+ save with power weapons, sot hat renders their arnament useless. Orks have choppa so that 2+ save is now 4+ which is not bad but in conjunction with the ork attack number you're going to fail on average half of your save wich means a lot of dead expensive termies. Last but not least a lot of ork players equip their nobs and warbosses with choppas now to take advantage of the Waaagh power adn then they'll kill all the termies with power fists that could be a danger to themore heavily armored orks or jsut any of the orks since they have jsut a high strength. All in all a basic marine stands just as good a chance of surviving combat against orks. I don't care who you are. You are not going to make many units that can win against mass choppas in close combat. Those marine players eem to thik that if they take uber crazy terminators and such that they will pay for their points because they more expensive and good but an ork choppa steals every single benefit that a terminator gives so why waste the points. You're better to invest in a whirlwind or some more bolters because I don't know what kills orks better than sustained fire from bolters and heavy bolters.
Either way you do the math, it all adds up to you goin' down
Well done Rob, I don't think you would have done as well as me against his armoured company though. That guy was getting mauled or "mullered" as the current phrase is, by everyone even dust.
Good score though, we'll have to see whos ratio is better.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
strike one for the Orks..
an amazing demonstration of the power of massed choppas against cheese

Great battle oly one thing is 59 models is a bit low for me in a 1k list. Mine has 100-120. OTher than that good job brother WAAAAGH.
Hey congrats for killing more of the stupid Emperor's "finest" (they're not "fine" if they lose like that).
Would you mind telling the Marine guy that HE SHOULD NOT USE TERMIES VS. ORKS!!! Drat, as people have said, most of the Termies' special abilities (power weps, 2+Sv,etc) is wasted on Orks. Tell him that unless he wants to become the record-holder for the worst records against Ork, he should get some more regular marines, or even better some bolter scouts. I find bolter scouts to be murder vs. Ork. Imagine a SM 100% scout army. 60+ models, fully kitted out with MLs and HBs, who can CHOOSE to deploy where and who deploys last...scary. What's more, since Ork players are fans of th choppa, the scouts don't suffer ANY disadvantage agaist it...that'd negate quite some of the Ork guy's points.
