Righty, bit of background beforehand. I managed to get my friends ensnared in the 40k world, and being who they are, they said "hey, lets have a 3k pt. slugfest!" (no rules, just blow the crap out of each other). One has decided to be Orks, and he's the one I get to fight.
Here's the list I thought up. I wanted an army that would be extremely hard hitting, durable, and highly mobile. I think I found it. Also, no uber cheesiness (it's not, is it?). I'll include my idea for deployment afterwards:
Master Force CommanderTerminator ArmorTerminator Command Squad (4)
Mastercrafted Power weaponAssault Cannon (2)Elite:
Land Raider transport
Terminator Squad (5) x 3Assault Cannon (2)Heavy Support:
Land Raider transport x 3Extra Armor
Whirlwind x 3Extra ArmorTroops:
Scout Squad (5) x 2Sniper Rifle (4)Fast Attack:
Missile Launcher (1)
Assault Squad (10) x 2Flamer (2)Total points cost: 3004
Krak grenades (10)
My deployment would start as follows; place the Whirlwinds abreast (one Castellan, two Vengeance), surrounded by everything else in such a way as to give as little line-of-sight as possible to the enemy (Assault squads may be placed in reserve, depending on the enemy layout). Assuming the enemy has assaulty/infiltrating troops, this prevents the Orks from getting to the Whirlwinds, which will be cutting large chunks in their ranks. If he doesn't have any, then I start with all troops in their transports, the whirlwinds placed so they're able to strike as many targets as possible (on the 4x6 board we're playing on, this won't be a problem), and the Land Raiders blocking line-of-sight to the Whirlwinds in front. From there, well, the dice gods decide that.
So, good idea, bad idea, am I completely nuts? Advice and criticism very much welcome, along with any other advice you think I might need.
I see the animal, the beast that is mankind whenever I look in the mirror. It saddens me greatly to see how far we have fallen...
Deserve Victory, my friends, for we stand as the last in line.
When all else fails, hit it with a hammer.
