    Flash gitz with the new book

    So reading through the new book I wanted to see how people are planning on determining the AP value of their Flashgitz now. When reading the entry, it is not resolved similiarly to Lootaz entry where the Lootas indicate you make 1 roll. Reading the entry it appears that you have to roll per model, however from a player point of view this feels ridiculous. So here's the options I see

    1. Make 1 roll for the whole unit similar to the Lootas, but again the unit entry doesn't indicate this.

    2. Make 1 roll per model after hitting, prior to rolling the damage result.

    Thoughts??

    Answer seems pretty clear to me. The codex says to roll once per shooting phase for the units AP, so roll one die for the whole squad (pg. 56 in the Ork codex, in the snazzguns entry)

    Hope that helps.

    How many people are actualy even gonna take Flash Gitz? They have nice stats, but are a wee bit expensive if you think about it. I myself want to make a small mob someday just for modelling purposes, but how effective does anyone even think they are?

    Well they do have nob type stats which is fairly nice not to mention you can give them a painboy so they are even more durable.

    Also they are a very orky unit which always has its bonus to some people :C .
    Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

    I personally would go with more dakka since orks BS is fairly poor which means that you need to try and get as many shots as you can get...not high quailty ones just numbers and hope the dice roll in your favor.

    Personally they look too expensive IMO. Thats a lot of points per model and I think the original concept of the flash gitz is confused. I always thought they were just a mass shooty force that could fire obscene amounts of shots at high STR. But that seems to be have been taken by the Lootas and now we have Nobs with big guns. Wouldn't it have been better to make their physical stats no better than the average ork but keep the gun so that their points cost would be lower?

    Have people considered taking them as an alternative to Nob squads as they have Nob style stats already?
