I asked my older bro(an ork player) 2 battle my gruesome chaos(with drednought made out of defiler.)I thought i would blow him away but not the case.well ill tell u da points later but...
CHAOS WORLD EATERS(my army of Khore(not khorne,khore thats no mistake)
squad alpha(6 chaos marines and 2 have plasma gun)
squad bojangles(5 berzerkers and 1 with plasma gun
squad crazy(5 berzerkers and 1 with plasma gun)
1 kustom dreadnought with a close combat arm with bolter and another with lascannon
1 chaos rhino
5 chaos bikers with multi meltas
1 chaos lord who roolz!
2 obliterators armed 2 the teeth...if they have teeth
squad we suck(30 ork boyz
squad we suck more(30 suckier boyz
4 killer kans with rokkit launchers
1 dreadnought with rokkit launcher
2 squads of 5 bikers
1 ork warboss
3 nobz(protectin da bigg dood)
3 war buggyz(carrying...nothing
60 grotz(ravenous little creatures foaming at the mouth)
now fer the orks ill speek orky(or try)
me,well i noticed that there was alot of cover on this map,which my older bro wood probly use
so i positioned squads bojangle and crazy 2 the right and left sides of 1(of many buildings)i kept alpha with the rhino and my lord was hiding(hiding)behind my rhino.my bikers and dreadnought i put in the open(stupidly) 2 mow down those darn little grotz.my obliterators were right alongside them.i looked 2 da other side
well my bros ork boyz ready themselves 2 flank us(as i expected thanku u crazy bojangles)and i think we wood try 2 distract me with his hords of grotz.his bikes were parrallel 2 mine and his kans and dred were pointing right at my drednought(suspicous)the biggun and da nobz were next 2 the charging hords of grotz.all his fast attack was with the boyz.
C turn 1-i got to go first,and i directed all my heavy weapon fire on the dred and kans.kans and dreds-eek: = me win.be4 that i moved up squads crazy and bojangles and my bikes,and my lord moved out from hiding and as alpha entered the rhino a lascannon shot rang out.it hit and penetrated the dred,and then...bam,and 1 less thing to worry about now.my obliterators shot their lascannons at the kans,not even touching them. from the rhino 2 marines fired their plasma guns,but 1 heated up,but the other penetrated a kan,and it looked like it wood spend 2 turns bein repaired.the heavy bolter on rhino inflicted a wound on the warboss,and then my bikes(with multi melta)fired at the cans,doin nothing(a waste of my melta shot.)
O turn 1-DREDDY!!!oh ya this is shiggs bro uhh ya i was :mad: and he was but now i was reddy 2 kill!my boyz moved up along with fast attack.my pointless grotz mindlessly scurried 2...get in close combat?no that wood be stupid.my kans shot rokkits at their dred and now its lascannon was disabled(ooooo toughie)and destroyed rhino and crew. i looked.my warboss!!! he moved a smidgen and shot shiggs lord...only for his bullet(s) 2 bounce of his armor.i didnt bother 2 shoot with my grotz...
C turn 2-not 2 bad...sept fer no lascannon.my lord moved into charge range and my dred moved and prepared 2 charge the grotz(bye)and
so with my lord.my obliterators fired lascannon at the Kans,and...BAM!!!!3 more kans left.my bro was a man (not) and in an orderly fashon began removing his grotz in silence(idiot haha!!!)so now my rhino shot along with its paseengers at the warboss,inflicting 3 wounds!!!bye warboss.my bikes killed all 3 nobs(wow)and now i felt even better.crazy and bojangles charged,leaving 21 orks dead.
O turn 2-crap!!!nooooooo my boss AND 23 boys dead!!!well my kans shot and destroyed that dang drednought.and...my fast attack charged the berzerkers.in a frenzy and blades and axes,dust arises.the dust clears,and the orks(my) are shocked!only 1 berzerker is dead!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!well,this turn stunk...
C turn 3-no more dred...well my lord moved behind a kan and needed a 6 to hit with the bolt pistol.nothing.my obliterators fire more lascannon at the kans,and i am happy 2 see he has only 1 kan left.my berzerkers slice up some orky dinner and kill 15 more orks.if 10 berzerkers can kill 60 boyz,then pigs can fly...
O turn 3-my kan shot and ahnialated an obliterator,and now i was back to more close combat.my boyz didnt fail me this time,killing 5 berzerkers.they failed the Ld test and began 2 flee!my boyz hunted them down and set up a fire for roasting...no lol.
C turn 4-my so called "faithful" berzerkers failed their Ld test!my obliterator tried 2 kill the kan,but only melted its claws 2gether,and my bikes turned 2 engage the boyz.wat a short turn.
O turn 4-the last thing the chaos ever saw was a mob of hungry orks charging them.we blasted the obliterater 2 bitz with the kan and i reminded my little bro=u lost get used 2 it.but my bikes destroyed it and all that i left of the chaos was there blood
little bro:it was fun but...i lost
older bro:...i won...well no surprise
NOTE:this was a simulation.no reel chaos space marines were hurt.the orks...another story
PLZ tell me how u liked it!!!also coming when im off the couch a STORY of the report

Good battle report. I was a bit worried at first with all the broken english (even if intentional), but the report was actually pretty readable. A few points though. First, your berserkers shouldn't have run when they failed their leadership save as the mark of Khorne makes them fearless. They should have taken extra wounds instead. Second, if you are playing a World Eater army, you're not allowed to take Obliterators as they can't bear the mark of Khorne. Third, I don't believe any chaos marines have access to multi-meltas. Fourth, I could tell what the outcome would be from the start. 30 people vs 140+?! Lastly, what point value game were you playing? I play as chaos, not orks, so I don't really have anything to say about his force.
1st of all,read your codex carefully(ill right so its readable).chaos bikers may be equipped multi meltas with 1 melta shot and the rest twin linked bolter shots.140 vs 30?well grotz are nothing,and boyz usually suck.cans are pretty good,and bikes...meh.in an extension to world eaters it clearly states that a world eater army of at least 1000 pts may chose up to 3 normally unassesible choices,but it is counted in elite or heavy support. ^_^
pleese forgive me if this story is udderlee horrible,becawse im not in any way a wrighter(or a speler).pleese enjoy if u even read it,and you can maybe give me some tips for better reports and all that good stuff
The Big Boyz Charge!
As the might khornate lord wiped the blood off his sword,a khorne messenger ran in and told him that they were receiving a charge from the orks.He sounded the alarm,waking the sleeping troops.they were rushed onto the battle field.They released the vicous dreadnought,and with a swipe it killed 6 of their men."keep that damned beast in OUR command,"yelled the lord.suddenly,they were faced with a field of green,and out of nowhere a rokkit landed on top of the lord.
"HELP ME..."the lords voice trailed off,and one of the soldiers wispered,"hes dead",as if death was listening to them.the drednought fired a random shot and the obliterators morphed into one form,then another,and so on.the bikers sped at full speed,and shot,hitting a killer kan.the kan shrugged off the shot and then the other shot melted his rokkit closed.the ork drednought fired its rokkits,killin a few of soldiers.then,the chaos saw what this really was-a massacre.
the orks had chaos blood and body parts al over,and some stopped to feast on...the orks must have destroyed their main force,and bloodthirsty came looking for more.the rhino transports,3 of them,steadily moved forward.one of their wheels were shot off by a rokkit,and it stubled and then tipped,where the squad exited it.all of the berzerkers charged with no mercy to avenge the death of their lord."bang,Bang."some thing caught the attention of the chaos.they thought it was rokkits far off,until they saw a wall of green...
massive and brutal,a squiggoth stood at the side of the marines,and stomped on them like bugs.grotz from the top fired crazy weapins,missing poorly.the drednought was a pile of metal,obliterators a squash on the ground.the remaining troops retreated.and the battle was in favor of the orks.but for how long...
i must say i dont think it really follows my report and i think its bad,but im sortta maybe will make a sequel... ^_^ if anyone wants to tell me their mind about(probablly it sucks)be free to tell me just post i have finished a campane fpr the chaos in a brutal fight with orks and ill be reporting each battle,so look(or dont)look forward to that

I second the first guy, it was a pretty good report. Thanks for the effort.
Ok, I reread my codex, and I stand by what I initially said. On page 33, it specifically states the rules for bikers, and says that up to 2 bikers may replace their twin-linked bolters with a meltagun, plasmagun, or flamer. It never mentions having a multi-melta. Also, on page 48 it specifically says "units that cannot have the Mark [of Khorne] cannot be used" in a World Eaters army. It gives no exceptions for armies with more than 1000pts. Check which version of the codex you're using with the most recent one on the GW site.
:cool: I read that only havocs and raptors cant use the mark of Khorne.an obliterator is a marine who is dwelt in the eye of terror to long.now,why would the makers of this game not let khorne use a marine?and my codex says i can use multis but it gets 1 melta shot.the rest are bolter shots.so i win haha.now if this is true tell me:what page deos it say that obliterators cant have marks?and,is khore real because i thought i just made it up?

I can't imagine you are actually serious with this post! :huh:Originally Posted by SHIGGY
You get it right with the Havocs and Raptors, but then you stray WAY off the reservation chief!
Do you honestly believe that the rule for obliterators should be interpreted 'your' way simply because you can't imagine it going against you?
It doesn't matter that the obliterator used to be a marine. What matter's is that obliterators cannot be given any marks of chaos and therefore cannot be used in a pure World Eater's army.
As for your Biker's using Multi-Meltas: well, you are wrong again. A unit of Bikers can only have 2 MELTA guns in it. Not MULTI-melta guns which is an entirely different weapon. And if you did equip 2 of your bikers with meltaguns they may shoot them every round until they die or the game is over.
Are you using a current version of the Chaos Codex? Is it even a Chaos codex licensed and printed by Games Workshop?
The reason I ask is because Nowhere in the GW codex does it say that ANY (including Khorne or Khor) army gets to choose 3 normaly inaccesable unit types if they are over 1000 points.
By giving your troops and bikers the mark of Khorne you made them 'fearless'. Don't worry, this is a good thing, but you played them wrong. Your troops will Never run away! They will; however; take an unsavable(?) wound everytime they lose close combat and are outnumbered by more than twice(?) their number. (the (?)'s are because I'm still a little shaky on the specifics, but I think that's right).
As for Ork grots and normal Ork boys sucking, well everyone is allowed to have an opinion, and mine is this: If you get beaten by 'sucky' troops as badly as you did in this battle report, you may want to rethink your definition of sucky. Even thought the grots needed 5's and 6's to hit you they still got 60 dice to do it with! 120 dice if their pistols are rapid fire and if I remember correctly they get 2 cc attacks normally and 3 on the charge so you are looking at possibly 120 to 180 dice there! Even if they need 6 to hit and 6 to wound the sheer volume of dice makes that scenario likely! And then here come the orks that DO get 3 attacks normally with 4 attacks on the charge with a weapon that makes your armor saves no greater than 4+. And there are 60 of them! that's 180 dice normally and 240 dice on the charge!! And when it comes to close combat the 'sucky' ork troop is as skilled and as tough as any marine chaos or not!
A good commander would take that threat very seriously, and work desperately to change those odds!!
As far as the report itself, all I had to do was read the Army lists part to figure out the outcome. I could teach my dog to use your brother's army list against that Khore army list, and while he may have trouble with the dice rolling part (because of his lack of an opposable thumb) he would still turn that Khore army into the same thing he turns his dogfood into!
Please don't mis-interpret this as a knock against you. It's simply an evaluation of the tactical situation that the army of Khore faced. To steal a quote from the movie 'The Last Starfighter' "I always wanted to fight a desperate battle against incredible odds"
When we fought the battle of the Alamo here in the U.S. the outcome was pretty much a foregone conclusion, and my dog could have led the Mexicans to victory there as well!
He's a good dog! :lol:
Other than that it was a pretty enjoyable read.
In the future though: get a current copy of the GW Chaos Codex and familiarize yourself with it's rules. If the rules are unclear to you, then ask more questions here in the forums and there are plenty of people willing to help you out.
Before you know it, that World Eaters army may be trouncing your brother Orks!
