    Orks dont have the best armor, I think 12 is the best it gets ( not including a battle wagon) and their trukk is only 10 on all sides if im correct.

    with that, waht are you using the las cannon heavy weapon squad for, Mortars or heavy bolters or auot cannons i think would serve you better, or forget the whole sqaud and buy a second grifon

    a hydra will also help take out the pesky fast ork vehicles.

    what are the orgyns for?

    You have your squads decked out for assault and mobile fighting but the orks will come to you. Pack your squds with heavy bolters and grenade launchers. Then pick up three autocannon heavy weapon squds for scything down copters and trucks. A tank should be able to handle anything heavier. But beware of the battlewagon loaded with 20 shoota boyz.

    HQ:
    Ditch the Medic and the Close Combat gear. Grab an Autocannon or 4 G-Launchers. this can either be a Light tank hunter or a Infantry blatter. 4 G-Launchers is probably a better idea as it can cope with both Infantry and AV10 vehicles.
    The rest of the gear is good.


    ELITES:

    Ogryns aren't loved by many people but i like 'em. against Orks i'd pick your opponents wisely. They can take a Mashed Ork Mob but i'd stear clear of Nobz and deffinatly run away from Mega Nobz.

    TROOPS:
    PCS- Same advice as the CCS.
    Infantry- Get some Heavy weapons on your Infantry Squads. Autocannons are more than capable of taking on Ork transports. Running towards Orks will get you killed. Orks can out shoot Guard at 18 inches.

    HWS - Lascannons might be handy against Battle Wagons but i'd find something else to put them on. Sentinels or a Vendetta are better use of the points. Just grab 3 Autocannon HWS. If these are the models you have move these into the Infantry Squads.

    Vox - Mobb your guys up into Squads of 20. This way they'll make best use of orders and you'll save 5pts per 20 men which adds up.

    FAST:
    I know you don;t have any but Armoured sentinels are brilliant for hholding up Orks in Combat. Grab a Squadron of 2 and Run them into combat with the Biggest mob of Orks. If your opponent is foolish and doesn't have a Nob with a Power Claw you'll be laughing. If things are desperate you can still charge in and last a few turns before being killed off. It's worked well for me in the last few games.

    HEAVY:

    Griffons. Brilliant against Orks. Take more. Hell take 9.

    Leman Russ. Good, against Orks the Lascannon is a waste. Stick with the H-Bolter sponsons to take the hurt to Mobs. I'd grab a Demolisher though. AP2 is handy incase your opponent brings MegaNobz. Str10 is handy against Warboss's.

    Eradicators are Seriously nasty against Orks as they will Ignore all their armour and all their Cover saves while still wounding them on 2's with a Decent range. Take 2 of these with maybe 2 griffons in support to shell any Lootas hiding in the back?

    lol valkyires are much messier, especially if your opponenet has almsot no trucks and has deployed everything with little cover and lots of troops without +2 cover or armour save ^^.
    thanks

    1500pts vs ork result!!

    Hi all just quick update, played last night and demolished the ork scum!!
    By turn 2 thanks to some amazing firing from my griffons his largest mob of boys were butchered, by my own fault sadly let a bomb squig get far to close and my chimera with vets was blown to hell with five of the guys being shredded.
    By turn 4 all over for the orks only a Burna boy and a battle wagon left on the table!!! With only the loss of my vets and a very small portion of one of my platoons in return a extremly impressive result i must.
    Thanks for all the advice guys and all i can say against orks all you need is griffons, griffons, GRIFFONS!!!!!
    Next up bring on the Eldar!!
