Hey i was wondering if anyone as any advice on defeating a lucky as hell ork army. The guy I play for some reason just doesn't know how to fail a 5+ inv save....
he usually has a uber tooled warboss costing like 750 points mounted in a truck, vulcha boys, two squads of 17 3 with big shootas, 3 kans 1 w/ rokkit, 3 kannons, and a basilik. oh and a truck w/ a custom mega blasta. For some reason no one in the group i play with has been able to beat him in like 5 mounths. I typically end up killing everything execpt the damn warboss the thing just doesn't frickin die
Stature + Dread Axe. Can't make a save you don't get.Originally Posted by Greenbeard The Ex-pirate
Hey,Originally Posted by Greenbeard The Ex-pirateI take it you're exaggerating here for effect . . . ?he usually has a uber tooled warboss costing like 750 pointsAre we talking about a 1500pt list?vulcha boys, two squads of 17 3 with big shootas, 3 kans 1 w/ rokkit, 3 kannons, and a basilik. oh and a truck w/ a custom mega blastaEr, where is *your* 'uber tooled' HQ?I typically end up killing everything execpt the damn warboss
Double-team him with a Fast DP and Winged GD.
Dodge any speedbumps and stick him.
That Boss should be gone by turn 4.
i wish is was exerating his warboss costs exactly 732 points for a 1500-2000 point game typicly
although next game im probaly loking at a tooled demon prince with dread axe a thirster defiler 10 flammers a handfull of chaos warriors a handfull of thosand sons maby i don't no i still have to put together a working list
A warboss CANNOT COST more than 140 PTS. I do also belive that he is talking about his retinue too (included in the cost) Your friends ork army isn't done very well. Mobs should be bigger and he should tone down his HQ ALOT. Also, Trucks may not be equiped with custom mega blastas (I belive the term you are looking for here is: Buggyz and trackz)
In short, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING MAN? Blow all his crap up with some good all' ranged firepower. He's wasting half his army IN A TRUCK kill the goddamn truck (and if my hunch is right he has them in mega armor)
Maybe if you post your list we could see what your doing wrong?
P.S. Caboose for senator! Yar!
firstly. 732 points for 1 model?! surely thats illegal? any ork player should be able to help-try posting in the ork forum to ask.
as for winning. i would say autocannons are a good bet against orks. wounding on 2s. 2 shots each. 48 inch range.--lovely.
and flamers. lots of flamers (both kinds if you have the tzeentch models)
template weapons are great and bog standard orks dont get armour saves. and the benefits of doombolt are clear
if hes lucky-use the numbers game.
a havoc squad with 4 autocannons and your 10 flamers-30 s5 shots with a 50% chance to hit and probably the same to wound. and 8 s7 shots with 66% chance to hit and wounding on 2s
on average that would be 15 armour saves per turn from 470 points worth of your army.
the dreadaxe is a good choice on your lord, especially when coupled with stature-no saves at all, and with furious charge and strength? youll be hitting first on the charge. hitting on 3s and wounding on 2s with no saves allowed.
buy daemonic speed for fleet and a 12" charge to make sure u get the charge, and remember to make him test for pinning if you blow his truck up.
the otehr orks should be cannon fodder for your marines and lord.
if he still keeps winning-check his dice
no not one model he has 5 tricked out nobs and the mad dok and mek boy
ok, we can work on that-although everything thats been said still applies.
what models do you have to work with? if we can get that well get youu an army list worked around it.
Half his army is in a truck for crying out loud!
The advantages that orks have are numbers and speed. He has only one speedy thing and VERY horrable numbers. Kill his truck then shoot the living daylights out of everything else. Charge when his squads have been successfully hamstringed.
ive a fair bit on my hands although not all of its chaos marines 40 some marines 4 preds 3 dread models 1 landraider 10 flammers, 5 screamers, prozy greater demons exept for lord of change have the model for that one, a defiler and demon prince model that i can borrow. also i have7 termies and 9 thosand sons i think thats pretty much it
