I got wind that GW are planning a new ork book for next summer and that its set too have new units that can specialise in looting eldar vehicles!!! Also they are gona bring out some new forms of war bosses thank fully as everybody uses Grankskull.
"The space marines are the super human warriors of mankind. But the Imperial guard are the strongest in courage and faith for what is a man with out faith?"
hmm that would be scary! orkish falcons of death!
Which Halo character are you?
You talk alot, you don't do much, but at times you can be invaluable.
It should come out sooner, but it takes time, I guess.
...ork fire prisms?....
A man's at odds to know his mind, for his mind is aught he has to know it with.
It shouldn't take more than a month to make new rules, balance, and put them in the book, its the length of time it takes to make the models... or GW just sucks and takes forever to make new stuff while they bathe in money that they get from continous price hikes... why must such a terrible business own such a good game... they truly kill me.
And its probably not 'eldar' specific they probably just increased the amount of vehicles orks could loot instead of the basic IG and marine tanks.
Because its not a terrible business? That might have something to do with it.
Granted, it most likely would be a a couple of months to playtest and make the rules, then print them, but no one seems to know GWs plans at the minute.
Whatever SM Chapter is after the BT
They can't just drop something half way through just to start something else. THAT would be bad business. If Orks are to get their dex next year, so be it. If they get it before christmas, so be it.
But of course, I guess their just to busy swimming in all that money you mention right? I mean, not that it actually costs anything to run a business.
Either way, it thats the case that it is next year, then at least I get plenty of time to save up the coins for Foxutz Fox Fangz XD
The only thing stopping me at the minute is the fact my Tau aren't painted, and that I would rather start collecting once the new dex is out =^.^=
Ah well im not going to argue with a mod on this subject, but I will tell you this. (Note: the following has happened to me consitantly, it may not affect you.) GW is always late on preorders by at least a few days, they have constantly sent me the wrong pieces for tanks and bit orders, they continue to make more and more models with the outdated metal because its cheaper for them to produce, yet they charge more than plastic, and they neglect most of the races while continuing to shine upon space marines, and by doing so they continue to make them more popular and thus other races get neglected, which is a constant cycle that feeds upon itself.
For the above reasons, I believe GW is a terrible business. It is my opinion and you don't have to agree with it.
and BTW yes it does cost money to run a business, but when you consider how they definitely make at least 90% profit on all models that cost them nickels and pennies to make, and have a limited staff compared to most businesses, they can suck it as they continue to raise prices and make more things metal, so don't give me that 'Poor, honest business men trying to make ends meet as they provide us with gaming pleasure' crap.

Who said that I was? I really don't think I mentioned that in my first post.so don't give me that 'Poor, honest business men trying to make ends meet as they provide us with gaming pleasure' crap.
What happened to the "I'm not going to argue with a Mod on the Subject" line =o_O=
And what the hell has "GW being late on preorders" got to do with a new Ork codex. I think we'll stop this before it goes off topic =^.~=
I hope they make a big campaign when the orc codex comes out. Its been so long since the orcs have had an update, and it will definitely be a big event when all the closet orc players come out to brawl.

The ability to loot certain Tau and Panzee (Eldar, it's the ork in me...) gear is interesting, but what gets me even /more/ happy is the prospect of new models. While any embittered ork Warboss is more then happy to kitbash his way through his entire KoS army (probably comes out cheaper too...), hopefully these will get the attention of some of the new gamers.
I'm slightly leery of where they'll be taking the fluff ('ultimate biological weapon' seems cool, but makes me wonder if that will change the general feel of the army), but that's just me being a worrywort.
Besides, it'll be nice to see orks get a chance to smash their way through all and sundry for a change.
Up until there's the latest Black Gobbo article talking about how to use Ork bitz to customize your new Space Beakie veteran squad. ^_-
As a side note, it would also be nice to be able to point to some recent ork fluff that shows us merrily stomping our way through all those oppose us, kind of like how the 'nids and Tin'eadz are being presented right now.

I just assume that they will upgrade the orks before the xenos hunters codex comes out. Man that thing is hanging on the horizon like a death star for me as an ork player................
