Hey guys! I've been having fun building and painting Da Green Tide, and playing a few games. The first 2 games with my orks have been positively phenomenal fun, and I'm so glad that I started this army! It's everything I've hoped for and more.
Just a quick summary, I beat a Chaos Marine army with a Red Corsair theme lead by Huron down to him having 1 man left. We both had fun with the game, I think. After we started deploying, my opponent looked across the table and said "I just don't think I can kill that many orks!" This was an 1850 army with 150 boyz.
Then, at the local store that I'm near for my vacation, they had a big apocalypse battle where the 1st half was 4th edition rules and the 2nd was 5th. 750 points per person. It was the most fun I've had in apocalypse. I mainly took a bunch of boyz and a looted wagon that I am in love with.
Later, I'm hoping to get some pictures of the warboss I made and the battlewagon I built from a trukk and a chaos rhino. The warboss is on a bike... or I guess more accurately he's on rollerskates being dragged by a crazed grot on bike.
I'd be really pleased to get some otha stories bout da boyz battlin!
I'm trying to catalog every song with a reference to yetis or Sasquatch. Please help.
Ah, always good to hear about another ork player enjoying a good krumping. I<d love to share some stories but I can't seem to think of any off the top of my head as its been far too long since my boyz have seen action. Anyway. I hope to hear plenty more from you and the others.

WAAAGH!!! Good going orks are da best. I just one my 1st two 5th ed games on Sunday beat nids and CSM.
Both games where good fun. Best moment was the shokk attack gun getting 6,6 and pulling 1 carnifex and 6 genestealers in to the wrap. 2nd best 5 terminators running a way from 2 killa Kans because they couldn't kill then as they had no power fists
My orks are almost all special types, with only two small squads of boys running down the front, they don't win a lot of games, but when luck is on their side and they can get in range quickly enough they slaughter the lot!
I just had a small game against a mates necron, just small under 400 points and although I suffers a lot of early casualties, once I made it to the front line, there was just such an overwhelming force of orks his 1 attack necrons had nothing to do but wait for their deaths.
The more I play/paint/convert orks, the more I realize they really ARE da best!
Assault terminators can take lightning claws. Probaly not the smartest bet to leave all the thunder hammers off though. As for me, my ork army has gone undefeated thus far. They got their first draw last game, in a 5th edition kill point mission, all he had left was a drop pod but it prevented the massacre and we were tied on points. Orks is good fun. I loves em, especially my nob biker unit which tends to rip through the enemy (especially since i tend to dice whore cover saves with that unit)
Joe Peshi (lone wolf) kill tally:Lash Sorcerer, Ghazkull, Yriel, Termi Libby, Vulkan.
I haven't been getting many games recently but I usually do quite well. I still need to see how 5th will shape my tactics. BTW for those who need to know, far as we can see in the 5th rules you can disembark from a truck at the full 18" (or 19" if red) AND Waagh and assault in the same turn. Which means we are faster than we used to be.

Doing well with my Orks so far, another victory to the Waagh last Friday with a 1250pt against a good mates Chaos. Dawn of War setup with base objectives. Opponent couldn't reach my base so a squad of orks just sat there and did nothing while the trucks and bikers shot up the field doing their damage and the Weirdboy (fancied a change from the Big Mek with SAG)......not doing a great deal apart from deep striking 25 orcs successfully, but that was unlucky coz I was 1 inch short for zapping a Land Raider!
A couple of fortunate circumstances on my part, one been that his Greater Daemon took forever to appear on the field from reserve! But I was proud to reiterate to other players that despite Ork anti-tank been generally rubbish, my Ork Nob Leaders could still make a Land Raider explode at cruising speed!
Now i just gotta paint them after spray/basing.............god help me, so many models, all assembled. This army painter stuff better work!
Amen to a little Orky gloating ^_^. Grats on all the wins guys - keep putting fear of the green tide into those players hearts!
Two's to kill. Ahh, sweet sweet music.
Putting fear as well as some annoying "orks are overpowered, waaahh waaahh waaahh despite the fact I'm using the Chaos Lash of Cheese or playing Space Marines or Tyranids"
Does annoy me sometimes when people think orks are most overpowered race when they hardly have room to talk!!
