    SMvs.Orks~Snipers

    -Any good tactics for fighting Orks? Does one just need to stay away and rapid fire them away? Or charge?
    -What should a Snipers cape look like?(I don't think I'm good enough to paint camouflage like the one in the codex) And a snipers undercoat? Black or white?

    Against orks I wound use lots of missile launchers (frag) Do not waste points on "overkill" hvy weapons. As for other usefull units I would consider a Dreadnought with hvy bolter and missile launcher. Perhaps a Whirlwind. The Landraider Crusader is also very usefull against weak armored opponents

    I agree MasterBelial, the best way to take out orcs is to keep them under a constant hail of fire.

    Yes indeed a missle launcher will cause havoc, but at the same time do not forget some heavy bolters...nobs can be a bit harder to kill with just strength 4 weapons.

    Do not, I say do not forget HEAVY weapons alltogether, the orcs also have access to "heavy" armour.
    And it is always nice to take out those mega armour dudes before they reach your troops... ok so the orcs can't hit the broad side of a barn, but they sure will kill you if they reach close combat...
    Tanks with autocannons are also nice... for you... bwahahahahahaha!

    Anyway...Eztrovia!

    ya see,
    when i said that that was the painting foroum,
    i was referring to the marines,
    the scout psrt was fine.

    any earth tone (browns, dark greens black, grey) would do for the cloak if you dont think you can do the camo,
    and i'd just spray your scouts with what ever you spray your normal marines in (it wouldnt really make that big a diffrence)

    o yeah, and bikes against orks to,(preffrably with an attack bike in the sqaud)
    lots of mobile fire power there!

    Split up your questions, this belongs to the painting forum.

    It depends on what sort of Ork army it will be. Against a footslogger, you want template weapons, preferably Ordnance. However, if there are a lot of vehicles, or it is Kult of Speed, you will need slightly heavier weapons, and template weapons will be less useful.

    why assault orcs? when u can use a land raider they can't hardly destroy? also, I believe orcs are nasty in HTH... so why not shoot em' down from distance?

    I JUST SAY: HVY BOLTERS! don't allow them to save...

    Template weapons are good against them.
