playing a friendly 1k a piece game vs blood axe Orks and alpha legion Chaos marines.
'carnage' type central objective game.
i'm using my own 'Severed fists' (minor divergence; 'cleanse and purify')
these are my first ideas:
HQ: chaplin with jump pack, t honours, BP.
troops: 2x 6 tac marines with las cannon/ plas gun
fast: landspeeder tornado with assault cannon and hvy bolter
3 bikes+ 1 attack bike(multi-melta) with melta gun, vet sgt with power fist.
10 assault marines with vet sgt with power fist, 2x flamers
figured that i can target the mass of orks with the whirlwind and then charge in with the assault sqd (hence the flamers).
as he's using blood axes the las cannons will target the inevitable looted vehicle...... as well as any oblitoraters, rhinos or any thing else in alpha legion colours which they can see.
bikes and LST are there to engage at range and up close with my friends traiter marines, fill in gaps, slow his advance and generally be in the right place at the right time... :p
so.... what do you think?
i've got seven days untill we play and am open to all suggestions.
thanks in advance.
For playing Orks, you don't have enough of a shooty base for my liking. Bad scatter roll with your Whirlwind for a couple of rounds (which happens easily enough), and your going to have real problems whittling down a 30 Man Ork mob. I'd try and cut something, most likely the bikes (you have 2 Lascannons and an Assault Cannon already for anti-tank), and try and increase your line squads with as many bolter marines as possible. Otherwise you still have the real risk of being swarmed (except your Landspeeder...it's the best thing you could have taken).
Drop the flamers on the assult squad. I would increase the size of the tactical squads to ten for more bolters. The bikes drop the multi-melta a heavy bolter will do. maybe add another bike or two. I thnk the bikes and the landpeeder should go after orks. HOwever the best plan for winning carnage is to wait for turn 3 before you really make your move. get as close as you can in cover fire the whirlwind Etc. playing for an early win never works. however you should be at the objective around turn five. The bikes and landspeeder and assult squad will be good as you need to be able to get places really really fast in carnage battles
