I want to get my brother started in 40k so we can play together. I currently play Tyranids and I'm primarily CC with some shooting. Being completely oblivious to Orks, I was curious if anyone could give me some ideas on what would be a comparable Ork army. I'm looking to get him about 500 points for Christmas. Many thanks in advance.
Well, the issue with getting Orks for this Christmas is that they have a new Codex and many new models coming out in January. So first off, don't get him the Codex yet, as he will just have to re-buy it in January.
However, there is the Ork Spearhead Box set that is coming out on 12/20! Check it out here: http://store.us.games-workshop.com/s...754&GameNav=10
I have a leaked version of the new codex and counting the Spearhead box up comes to roughly 475 points, without handing out many upgrades at all. So this box can be used to easily make a 500 point list. However, there would be only 1 troop choice so it wouldn't be a Legal FoC. So if you could find him a box of Space Ork Boyz it would be an easy 500 and would include a good deal of CC with a bit of shooting. FYI though, they are releasing a new box of boyz (same models, but less of them with more bits) but you can likely still find the current box in some gaming stores.
Your local gaming store can probably pre-order the Spearhead box for you.
Hope that helps!
