its time for a new army. this time around i am going for a shooty army as the last 3 armies i have had were all assault armies, black templars, blood angels and an eldar army made up of assaulty units, ie howling banshees, striking scorpions and so on...
Shooty Space Marines
so which one of the above???
yes, orks can be shooty!!! in a funny way :w00t:
i think its time for a change in my tactics and to experience the big gun a bit more...l:shifty:

orks can be incredibly shooty, for only 2 points more than an imperial guardsmen you get +1S and ap on your gun and heaps better stats. T4 is better against guns than a 5+ save (due to ap5) anyway.
Not to mention if you play bad moons you can get oh so many battle wagons all loaded with guns. Fill them up with flash gitz that can shoot out the open top and you get something very powerful.
use Nazdreg to infiltrate 20 flash gitz to rapid-fire blastier shoota's 1st turn and they feel the pain. Of course most of your orks melt themselves but thats half the fun. :w00t:
If you want ideas and inspiration talk to Robizzle. He has an excellent shooty ork army that rarely loses.
I say go with orks, shooty orks are a very fun army that I intend to collect too some day.
PS: just some stats against MEQ's
orks hit on 5+ wound on 4+
guard hit on 4+ wound on 5+
orks are just as shooty as guard but get extra stats and ap. And the ability to hurt T7/AV10

Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!
If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
Personally I've really liked Necrons lately, I think they look awesome and would be really fun to paint... I play Tau as my main army, and of course would recommend it. Especially for a shooty army.
