This was posted on Warseer by BigBossOgryn.
A friend of mine was up at the UK head office and had a read of the new Ork codex. Apparently he 'knows someone'. Here's what he told me:
- Choppas are gone for definite.
- Orks now have furious charge, but did not receive the base I increase that was heavily rumoured.
- Power of the Waaagh is now a translation of it's WFB counterpart in that once per game you can declare its use and all Orks receive Fleet for that turn.
- Warbosses are now T5 and no longer HAVE to be the leader of your army.
- Depending on who (Ie: Warboss, Big Mek, Painboss) leads your army, that dictates army composition, though the only example he could remember was that if a Warboss leads, then you get to have a unit of Mega Armour as a Troop choice.
- Units of Mega Armour are a reality and Elites.
- Deth Koptas are in the book and were described as 'dirty hard', but he couldn't remember why.
- Looted Vehicles: Apparently now you only loot the chassis of a vehicle and then add a selection of weapons YOU want to it, but whether or not they're from a general predetermined list of looted weapons or if the options vary depending on the chassis, he couldn't say.
Enjoy Ork players, enjoy.
Ravenous also said that the basic boyz (Slugga and Shoota) are droping by 2pts.
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
Interesting, give and take approach again though I'm not sure if I like these or not.
I like Choppas, and love them v's MEQ's which are prevalent. But on the other hand, fleet could mean a turn less incoming and for 2pts/model less you're getting lots more troops. I'd hate to use my IG on 6/7pt Orks. Robizzle already uses an ungodly number and my IG would be all around worse off.
Is this more pandering to SM?
Looted Chassis', Deth Koptas and themed lists, all cool.
I'll use my 6g of salt per day allowance with this, but thanks none the less.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
Sucks that choppas might be getting axed (LOLZ!!!1!), but they are a bit iffy. If only they would reinstate a save modifier (just the one! for the sake of the children!) then all would be well.
Also not hugely keen on orks getting much cheaper, you can already flood the field with them (with relative ease) and a horde CC army is much, much scarier than a horde shooting army...
Other bits sound cool, I like the news of power of the WAAAGH!, it makes much more sense to me, and means that a little more planning needs to go into your Orks 'unstoppable' charge...
We shall see I guess.

Sucks to hear that my Choppas are getting removed, but i kind of expected it after seeing Khorne losing there own chain Axes. i really hope they give us something to Compensate for that loss that dosent involve Rending.
But i really doubt the new Waaagh rule, cause that would just suck. Fleet for one round? come on, all i need is to roll a ''1'' and i get Rapid Fired to death.
And I hate the loss of the choppa...(though I don't play orks, and normally fight them with nids where the choppa doesn't affect me at all).
There's gonnbe even more orks on the table?
I think it's time for a whirwind...

6 (Critical Sig: roll 2 more times and apply the results, rerolling any further 6's)
Best news I've heard yet, my Boyz are getting their dues finally. I dislike Choppa's being gone, but I'm sure something will replace it. Cheaper Orks is always nice, now I can sorta compete with my friends Tyranid horde. Deth Kopta's were always one of my favorite units so it's nice to see them. Great to see all the Mega Orks I bought won't go to waste, units of them would just be cool.
Keep them coming Jared, I'd like to see some new models, I was hoping they'd look like the recent Ork art witht he curved ears. Looks nice to me.
While I am sad to see choppas and the old power of da waaagh go the potential fleet and furious charge make me a little less unhappy. T5 boss also makes me happy and I see a bright future for my merry band of looters. Really can't wait for it to come out now.

As said by every one else, sucks that choppas are gone. However, If the reality of Mega-Armored units is a reality, then that must mean that mega armor has gotten a boost. Which means my mega-armroed nob (reserved for a trukk sqaud) and my Ghazkull Mad Thraka model (reserved as a warboss in mega armor), will actually be effective and not just fluffy units, but I do hope 'Ard Boyz are still a viable choice and their role not overtaken by Mega Armor. Although it'd be interesting to see what a Painboss or Big Mek can give to your army. If a Big Mek means more Killa Kans, then hello Big Mek.That is teh secks. Hopefully looted vehicles can fit into either fast attack or heavy support depending on the base chassis.Looted Vehicles: Apparently now you only loot the chassis of a vehicle and then add a selection of weapons YOU want to it, but whether or not they're from a general predetermined list of looted weapons or if the options vary depending on the chassis, he couldn't say.
