    Marines vs. Orks

    Hi!

    I just got beaten up twice by Dire Avengers orks...
    Do the rest of you ork players have any advice for what a space marine army should have in order to kill off some more orks?

    .

    Whirlwinds always do the trick

    also if you're using 6 man tactical squads, the extra 4 armed with bolters not only add extra attack in combat, but the bolters kinda mash orks.

    Predators Destructor with heavy bolters and autocannons, and storm bolter will help whittle down those big mobs of orks, and if you give more specifics about the ork army you were playing against then people could be more help thanks

    I just terribly lost twice against space marines, so I can second Equilibrator's advice.

    Well... we're talking small forces, ca 750 pts. He has three killa kans, one trukk carrying his boss and three nobz in mega armour and some 20 boyz on foot...

    We both have been playing for some twelve years or so, but the orks are a force we both seems to have managed to avoid in all these years, so we are both learning to play with/against it...

    For that kind of game, my two thrones would be....

    A.) Don't play any fancy/useless special chapter or vows (except mby Blood Angles) - you need balls and bullets, not frills.


    B.) Heavy bolters... lots of heavy bolters. They can drop trucks, boys nobz, kans, hq's... basically everything in our list short of a battle wagon. They won't do the job all by them selves, but they'll take a nasty chunk out of stuff before it can get to you.
    Two's to kill. Ahh, sweet sweet music.

    Muahaha, dem hoomies got a propa spankin. Dead killy we woz. Dakka dakka dakka! 8Y

    On a more serious note I suspect whirlwinds, predator destructor and everything with an assault cannon to cause some serious damage. Man those cannons tore apart pretty much anything. Kans, trukks, boyz flew to all directions.

    However we woz the more choppy in the end.

    Well... Let see what you (Dire Avenger), say when the librarian gets exchanged for a chaplain with a combiflamer...

    I wouldn't use scouts, they would only take out a couple orks (12pts) and would give the mob (if they get in assault) a D6 after slaughtering them.

    I would say lots of fire power with big gunz, whirlwinds, lots of rocket launchers, heavy bolters and a couple of lasguns for the drednoughts or trukks.
