Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am showing the game to a few people Saturday and want to make two 500pt list *(SM and Orks)that are equally matched. I'm not sure if this post is in the right place but I'm an ork player first and foremost so I came here.*For the orks I was thinking*
Warboss *PK, BP, eavy armor, cybork *105pts
12 boyz, Nob, PK, BP. *Truck, * 147pts
20*boyz, Nob, PK, BP. * *160pts
For the Space Marines
Captain , storm bolter, power weapon *118pts
5 man tact squad, sgt, combi flamerdrop pod, death wind launcher *155 pts
10 man tact squad, flamer, missile launcher. 170pts
Land speeder 50pts
I think they are pretty well matched, as each army can counter the others units ie Lootas vs speeder and drop pod, missile launcher vs truck. If any one has any ideas on better units for beginners I would like to here them. I would *like to get theses guys to start up as I spend up to up to 3 days at work(military) at a time and grow very bored in the evenings.
I should ask have you worked with GW or watched the employees give demo games? I no longer work for the company myself but when I give a demo game I try to create a story (before hand) to get the players in question more into it. (I have to admit I do enjoy being an actor sometimes) .
Anywho in terms of the lists, well I feel they're fairly equal both lists have a transport, and both have a "hammer" that can swing the game. I like it, but I do recommend you try to playtest if possible. The dice are the ultimate factor, which you can't control but at least you get an idea of whats strong, what's weak, etc.
ya know I have been playing this game for 10 years now and ive never even seen a GW store. But anyway I think I can come up with a story to go with it. At least enough for them to know what's going on. Thanks for the tip
