    I don't want you all to "tell me what army I should start"... I've got a BA army and am starting a 2nd one. I've narrowed it down to either Orks or Tyranids, so I just want to ask you Ork boyz...

    What's your favorite and least favorite things about the Orks?
    (I have to admit the frequent misspellings are appealing to me.)

    -Can I pretend this guardian is an Exarch?
    -Well, I'll just pretend this jellybean is a Dreadnought, then when it's destroyed I can eat it!

    Both Orks and Nids are horde armies, so you will have alot of models either way.
    But Orks have more flavor.

    Orks are a good assault army, so if you are used to BA you will not be in the least dissapointed in the fact that ALL Ork boyz are close combat monsters.

    Great konversion opprotunities, most Ork players heavily konvert their stuff. Like scratch building vehicles, kit bashing any GW kits, and konverting everything from a grot to a dread.

    Most opponents underestimate the Orks, which leads to some interesting games.

    Few players play Orks. So you will be in the minority pretty much wherever you game.

    The rest is in my signature...

    I get that impression. Sounds fun.

    Anybody else?

    Fav thing :- there dead hardness, there CC capabilities (it's so fun to watch terminators back away from my on coming horde). and the fact rhinos can win CC!!! ( with spikey bitz - every time the oppontent misses they take a S3 hit - i laugh at the 6 fire dragons who assult my rhino to lose 5 men and only imobalize the rhino (which then got fixed by the grot riggers)

    Worst thing :- the time it takes to get into CC (unless u mount them in rhinos)

    I just swapped my 2500 point Tyranid Swarm for Orks and even tough I haven't played one single battle with them yet I'm a happy customer! Orks are way cooler, have more 'soul' and are just a blast to look at.

    If you like fast armies, you can have it. If you like crazed bikers blastin' at the enemy, you can have it. If you like the ded 'ardness of da kans, you can have it.

    I say pick Da Boyz. You won't regret it!!

    Orks have the most personality of all da 40k armies. They are for players who have a sense of humour and enjoy ded ard armies who are ded stompy. Don&#39;t play with no weedy Snakebites or Speed Freaks. You want the ded stompyness of da Goffs or Badmoonz.

    Plus you get to type weird and not given out to.

    the entertainment value of the orks is definetely one of their advantages over the &#39;nids. But the &#39;nids are a little more on the scary side, which is cool too. It&#39;d be easier if I could just get both of the armies. Rrrrrrr, why don&#39;t I have enough money and time to buy both and paint both.... ?
