Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I just wanted to know how the collective Waaagh has been going?
I just played a 1v1v1, Orks vs Genestealers vs Chaos 2000 points each. We played down an 8'x4' table, the genestealers opted to be in the middle. I played horde orks, the nids were all genestealers with 3 warriors, 2 lictors and broodlord, chaos was 2 berzerker squads in rhinos, a thousand sons squad, havoks with autocannons, defiler and 2 lashing daemon princes.
I beat them both, starting with the genestealers and on to the chaos marines. Worst units were the deffkoptas (I split to 3 1 man units, needed them to be a squad of 3.) best units were the 9 kans with grotzookas, each payed at least double its cost. Man I love orks! Who else can kill twice their army cost in one game?
well, Orks for me have been going great. Even when I'm losing I still have fun and thats what makes them stand out as an army for me.
But, as a fairly new Ork player (weedy little runt) maybe I haven't seen the other side. Either way, my own personal Waaagh! is going great. Thanks for asking :p.

The most fun I've had playing 40k in a while, Orks are a refreshing change from a marine gunline in ==My== area where everyone plays some flavor of MEQ.
Check out ==My== blog: www.bnhblog.blogspot.com
Orks have been treating me beautifully, I took 5th in the second round of 'ard Boyz playing a list very similar to what I normally do, and I had fun the whole day. All the other players started to get down after a while, but not me, orks are (as one of the above posters said) fun even when you're losing.
I haven't gotten a game in the last 2 weeks tho, so I am a little peeved! Also, I'm still scared that I'm gonna see a flood of new ork players after AOBR so that no one wants to play against orks anymore...
I'm trying to catalog every song with a reference to yetis or Sasquatch. Please help.
But new players are generally poor players, so all those new marine players will think they can walk all over orks. Until they play one of us seasoned players!
My Orks have been treating me VERY well lately. I have won 5 games straight... 4 of which were Marine armies (different variations) and 1 Imperial Guard army (not very tank heavy.. which was odd).
My favorite victory of the bunch is against 1 particular Space Marine army... Deathwing. All terminators would seem very bad against Orks, especially given the fact that he was blast-template heavy.
It was a (and excuse me for not remember the name of the scenario) '1 objective per side' battle... which I just slopped a 30 man squad of boyz hidden in some trees holding my objective and proceeded to wipe every last terminator off the battlefield... best part is.. it was the Shock Attack Gun that did the most damage for me (which has been rare for me). The other devistating moment was my squad of 11 nobz and warboss dominating unit after unit of terminators... the look on that man's face was priceless. "What do you mean 44 attacks.. WS5 STR7!?" Nobz with Waagh! Banner and Big Choppas are fun... I normally wouldnt take that sort of thing (due to points) but.. I figured "what the heck" and it turned out to be glorious. Anyhow... /end ramble.
Thats my story

i read your responses and it really brings a tear to my eye. I love the orks but i have been getting handeled by nids. I fought in a space marines and eldar against chaos and orks and that was prolly my best battle. We (chaos and orks) had a amaazing victory although the losing side sniggered at that, yes my boyz inflicted the most damage i was really just a lap dog for their chaos allies. I can blame some of my frustration on still learning the new rules of 5th editon since im more of a vetran 4th ed player, but my view is that orks might be a little underpowerd. Or im just an idiot...so as i said im very happy to read that you lads are having success with your mobz, cuz it keeps faith in my heart that i wont have to revert back to my wolves to get some wins. thanks
A feral Ork is a happy Ork.
Taipan, I am curious what you have been using in your army, I am curious because, not trying to rub salt in wounds or anything, but I went undefeated in 12 games in a league with Orks, 10-0-2. Then, my friend played my Orks in a Tournament and went 2-1 only losing to my Nurgle Chaos barley in the last round of the Tourney. He is still very inexperienced with Orks as well. So, I am wondering what units you are running and what kind of approach you are taking to the Orks?
