Get a New Army!!!
So, my most regular gaming buddy started Orks, he has wanted to for a while, but I told him to wait for the next codex... Now that it's here.... it's so powerful! Orks went from worst to one of the best instantly.
Anyways just answer the poll with which of my armies you think could fight Orks best (I've never faced Orks) and post a more detailed answer if you can! (And in your post also say which you think would be worst against Orks.)
I went with Necrons, because in my experience, they are pretty damn hard to beat.
My second choice would have to Nids because of numbers. They can equal or outnumber the Orks.
Third would be get a new army and start Imperial Guard. The only reason I say this is because thats what I play and Im trying to get as many others to Go Guard as possible. That and numbers, they are the same as Nids, equal or outnumber Orks. The only thing you have to worry about with the Guard is if the Orks get within assault range.
Its really up to you. Any army can be tailored to destroy any other army. Go with the one that appeals to you the most.
I would say go with Mech Tau simply because you can shoot them down easy the bad thing is when there in combat it's pritty much game over for you sadly.
Second choice would be fight them with Nids that are better in combat or if you have lots of Destroyers in your Necron army go with them.
What i would do is count from all your lists and see which army gets more shots remember when you're playing orks it isn't about the AP of the weapon more on the number of shots.
You wouldn't a blast template only matters and causes damage the more targets under the template so if you're Vsing Orks then you're going to get alot of his troops anyways.
It also helps if you tell me the name of the Blast weapon.
out of the choices there, id say tyranids, either an army where you match or exceed the number of orks or a nidzilla list with lots of dakkaguns. i wouldhave said mech tau because they can outmanouvre the orks and shoot the crap out of them but since the new codex ive been eating tau for breakfast with my orks, i just put in so many boyz that theres no way i wont make it to combat at least partially intact.
incidentally, what kind of ork army is your friend going to play? big difference between fighting a footslogging horde, for which id recommend CC and dakanids, and a kult of speed, for which tau might not be such a bad idea, providing you can shoot down most of his transports and put some hurt into this lower body count style of ork army before he gets into CC.
