Welcome to Librarium Online!
As the title says i'm a new ork player. I have 2 sets of Blackreach Orks, and 20 extra Boyz. I'm not real sure where to go now with all the different models. As far as a clans go i like the Goff's and Dethskulls. Anyways where do i go from here, do i get Lootas, Trukks, Looted Wagons, Kans or what? Any suggestions will be very welcome. Heres what i have and i look forward to your replies
56x Slugga Boyz
4x Boyz w/ Big Shoota
Welcome to Da WAAAAAAGH!
Heres a link that should help point you in the right direction http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...00-basics.html , I'm in a hurry so I have to be quick. Another of the members can give you more detailed info.
Lets go massacre something
I am a sexy shoeless god of war!
The basics covers it fairly well.
You have a solid core of an army. What sort of Waagh! do you want to field? Footsloggers, mechanized, Speed Freeks, Battlewagon Brigades, heavy shooty, all out assaulty, a mix, sneaky gits, and so on.
Footsloggers, heavy shooty, or mechanized. As far as Background stuff goes i like the way the Dethskulls, and the Goffs fight.
If you want heavy shooty, than I'd find a way to convert those slugga boyz into shoota boyz. If you can find (either from a friend or on ebay) some extra marine or imperial guard guns, it isn't that hard to snip off the choppa, and glue on a gun. A lot of my shoota boyz are just using two smaller guns rather than a full sized shoota. It still looks cool.
You'll also need a big mek w/Kustom Force Field if you're footslogging. All in all, it's probably the best HQ the Orks have. I'd just convert one of the warbosses into ones with some extra bits.
If you want 'shooty' then some lootas might be nice. The burna/loota sets only have enough pieces to make 4 Lootas + 1 Mek, but if you don't mind sacrificing some boyz, I used all the burna bits (and some spare extra bits) to convert some boyz into more lootas. Since the burnas have backpacks, converting them into lootas isn't that difficult, as long as you've got some extra bits.
Always field at least one fast troop unit, otherwise the 'seize ground' mission is virtually impossible to win. On that note, those nobz really need a transport, or they'll be shot down long before they reach close combat. I'd kill 2 birds with one stone and give those nobz a transport, either a trukk or a battlewagon.
Finally, every unit of boyz needs a powerklaw and bosspole in it, and the group of nobz needs 2-3 klaws, a bosspole, a combi-scorcha or two, and a waaaaaugh banner. I'd convert all of these things out of random bits, but if you want to be fancy, you could pick up one of the new nob sets. It's up to you.
"Any job worth doing, is worth doing with a powerklaw."
Grax got it.
KFF Mek, Shoota Boyz and Lootas are central to the shooty footslogging army. Grots, Big Gunz, Kanz, Tankbustas(for fun), Flash Gitz (for fun), Deff Koptas, Bikes, Buggies, Looted Wagons, and Battlewagons all fit in too.
When slogging it, you need plenty of firepower to put the hurt on the enemy, but you also need some fast responders to silence enemy guns and capture objectives. I like Kommandoz and Trukk mobs for this role. They can close with the enemy quickly, take out key units, and capture/contest any objectives.
If you want to go mech, it's all about the Battlewagons and Trukks, with Looted Wagons and Buggies as support.
Thank you guys for the help. The wheels are begining to turn now. Again thank you very much. Oh yeah and, one more thing. WAAAAAGGGHHHH!!!!
