Does the dread bash tactic work what is in the ork codex pg20 cheers.
In my experience: No, at least not the way they make it sound. Most players stock up on things like lascannons and missile launchers and if you simply march your dreadnoughts and kans across the field in a line they won't last past turn 1. Of course if you've got terrain to block you might last a bit longer. I find kans make good screening elements for my boyz as the approach but that I never expect them to actually reach CC: Instead they usually just suck up fire and block LOS for a turn or 2 while my mobs close the gap. A mek with a KFF in a mob right behind the kans helps them last longer. My kans rarely kill a great deal and almost never reach CC unless the enemy ignores them. I never use dreadnoughts b/c they are way over-priced for what they are capable of; the weapon options suck compared to a comparably priced SM dread.
Do dreadz/kanz get a cover save or count as being hull down when in the kustom force field then?
All vehicles fully within the 6" radius of the KFF are treated as hull-down. Dreads/kans are vehicles for all intents & purposes.
I use 6 killa kanz and a dread. When using the dread bash it can be very intimidating to the enemy. So use that to shake em up a little while your boyz mobz foot slog across the field.
But they do become fire magnets at times....lots of fun. When the dreads and kanz do get into CC it is real ugly for the other guy....poor sod usually gets all stomped on by the ded ard an stompy dreads an killy kanz.
WAAAGH! da dread bash
"Da Orks is da best cuz we ar ded ard an killy, mean, green, krumpin machines, hav da most dakka, da stompiest dreads, da shootiest gunz, da biggest bosses, an we uze choppas...WAAAGH!"
I always find it fun to take a single Kan, and then try to sneak him towards a helpless marine squad or similar. If he gets into CC its always hilarious.
I would try a dread bash if I had enough dreads, but Im just starting an ork army and so far I'm gonna stick to loads of footsloggin boyz and swarm em!
Anything is flammable if you try hard enough
dreds kans they live longer if u put them behind the first wave of orks with a mek boy folowing with a KFF.

My dread kill only my orks when it blow up in the air
Personal i have not and would not use it as i find dreds to be overpriced and kans dont cut it realy they are cheap for what they can do but armour 11 means they wont get to do it, teh only time i would take mass kans is if i knew the enemy did not have many weapons of a high strength and i wanted to use 9 just for the scare factor.
