Hey everyone, i run a pretty basic ork list, lots of infantry, 6 killa kans, some warbikes, etc. (total 143 models or something like that)
just curious, what imperial tank should i loot?
i was thinking either the basilisk or the LRBT. Because ordnance doesnt need a BS to function, just bypassing that little problem of my BS 2.
just curious as to what you guys/girls think would work better in my army. the basics of it:
Mega armored: Warboss, 5 nobz
30 grots +slaver
60 slugga boys (2 nobs)
6 killa kans
_________ looted vehicle

If I were you I'd go with the basilisk, you'll never be out of range and you don't need to move it, and since your armys mostly CC oppenents wont be able to get around your forces and knock it out. I hope I'm not shot for giving advice to the enemy:yes: :shifty:

I would go with a Russ personaly, but I think you will find the guard forum evenly split between Russes and Basalisks, with excelent armour and a main weapon only very slightly weaker than the Basalisk, it's a great light and heavy infantry killer.
Although the Basalisk has a much similar weapon with a huge range that can fire indirectly, you will need to think very hard about where you place it, as it cannon fire indirectly within 36", and it's armour is far too weak to be used as a direct fire tank.
I'll second Xethemez on this one. My son uses a Russ in Ork Army very effectivly.

russ and basilisk are good choices.
However, in my friend's ork army he's fond of borrowing my hellhound. It's a strong weapon that's good for burning out stubborn covermongers, and even if it misses, it still can hit, which is nice on an orky BS. Along with a pintle mounted stubber upgrade, it can also lay down a nice bit of fire on the way over, and it can advance with the rest of your army (or slightly ahead of it to provide cover if you so choose)

I would definitely go with the russ with a hull heavy bolter. It's only 145 points, it has rock solid armor, and will draw fire away from your battlewagon. When the enemy is presented with the decision to fire his lascannons either a russ or a battlewagon, chances are one of them will come out alright. If you take the basilisk, your battlewagon will take far more abuse.
If you take a bassie, they are super fragile and you have to be able to hide them. Even then, they have an irritating minimum range of 36" for indirect fire.
As far as I know Looted vehicles cannot take extra upgrades like Indirect fire, dozer blades etc so I wouldn't bother with the Bassie.
Demolisher Is a nice choice rolling up with your orks laying down that ST10 template can work wonder providing anti-tank as well :yes:
i would go with a leman russ it would be better in ur army
Cadian7th is partly right and partly wrong; vehicle upgrades other than the ork ones are not allowed for looted vees; however indirect fire is a weapons option rather than an upgrade therefore is legal.
And I second him about the Demolisher; I love mine. It draws fire away from other troops/vees and there are frew that don't fear the S10 template.
I like basilisks, but also know their use is a difficult art to master.
A leman with sponson heavy flamers running along your battle wagon would be more orky.
Best thing is to hide the battlewagon behind the LR
