Welcome to Librarium Online!
This weekend i will be facing the Orks. 550 point limit. I have plenty of warriors and destroyers also a foot lord and also a destroyer lord. Would like any info on war with these little green guys. What tatica to use and maybe on what guass carrying war machines to bring.
20 Warrors, with your foot Lord (no gear really needed, maybe GoFlame) And the fill up on your destroyers. That should do fine, just shoot them to bits
At 500 points you have little choice. Two 10-man warrior squads and a naked lord runs you what, 460 points? Give the lord some wargear, and you're about done. You can't even put a single destroyer in that army.
At this point tactica is simple; shoot them. A lot. And run away from combat. A lot. Nobs will make your squads into puddles if they catch you. Welcome to small point matches...
Your insight is spot on, but please be careful about points costs -- Canew

Thats Kinda what I was thinking, along with buying some new dice. I played Blood Angels the other day and got it handed to me with a silver platter. I had a foot lord w/ no gear and 11 warriors and 4 destroyers. I tried my best to keep my warriors out of cc but got caught. The destroyers were great but did not make WWB rolls very well
Are you playing a special house ruled version of the game that ignores compulsory choices, because there's no way you have done so otherwise with only 11 Warriors? No offense meant, but the question was bound to be asked.
Regardless, your best strategy at low point games really is to stock up on Warriors, and I've had some decent luck with simply giving my Lord a Res Orb. That fills up the compulsory choices at exactly 500 points, and while it's a little difficult to run Necrons at this point level without Phasing Out, you have a tiny bit of breathing room if you do (and you will) get confronted in CC. With the extra 50 points you could consider either adding a little more Wargear (Gaze of Flame is very handy) or possibly running a few Scarab Swarms, which will absorb an Ork assault nicely to delay your Warriors getting their hands dirty.
One nob and 87 orc boyz vs. 25 warriors and a Lord. (Assuming all models are naked) By virtue of being the Green Tide, they get to Fleet every turn.
That's not winnable. I'm assuming the Orc player picked out this battle?
if you not playing with the force org. chart take 2 'liths!!
so maybe a Lord, 10 warriors and a Monolith. Just tool up the lord, hide them behind the Monolith and lay waste.
We are playing the Giedion IV (sp) campaign. At least one HQ choice and one troop choice. Gaining territories will help my points but I have lost twice already and not gaining anything. I have only played roughly 5 games so not very good. I thank you all for your help.
