Welcome to Librarium Online!
well. ive been playing this game for a very long time. but every time i have tried to play orks ive fallen short. My question for you guys is what should i do with orks? Every time i make a list i seem to fall short of my goal of making a functional list that will be fun to play.
i would like to do something that is seldom done. Seldom done meaning not a speedfreaks or footslogger specialty list. i dont want to do that because its been done. over and over and over.
but i cant seem to find anything that really trips my trigger.
also, just a question about mechanics. everytime i make a warboss with a retinue in a trukk it runs around 400 pts. is this as bad as i think it is? i dont want to drop 400 pts on something so fragile as a trukk.
but tell me what to do. because i really do want to start a waaaaaaahhh
Well you could try to do a shooty list with flash gitz and lootas. You don't see too many lists like that around.
If you don't want your hq in a trukk try a battlewagon or loota a land raider (maybe).
Prey they don't take you alive
one that you don't see to often is the rounded list.
in the old 1st ed codex it talked about taking a little bit of everythign and using the combined arms approach to swamp an enemy.
one thing i like to do with my fantasy orcs is specialize the list so it is an elite army. So in this case, no gretchins, probably no fast attack, and compse the rest of the army with stuff like tankbusta's and burna boyz for core units, Lots of dreads and Kans and mabye a battlewagon. And for the main units in your army (though more expensive) you could have Squads of skarboyz, Ard boyz, kommandos or storm boyz. Just make sure it is still a legal list. For some reason when you play a hoarde army it is fun to switch it around so you take only the most elite units, and keep the army small and powerful ...
kinda like the enemy space marines...grrr
