    Hello ork-guys.

    I'm thinking, or planning, to start a little basic Ork army.

    I have a few questions:

    1. Is it better to start with 2 units of Slugga Boyz than 1 unit of Slugga Boyz and 1 unit of Shoota Boyz? or maybe a unit of 20 Slugga boyz and one of 12 Shoota Boyz with some 'eavy gunz?

    2. What should i use to expand this army? I plan it to be like 1000pts when done.

    Plan: 1 Warboss (maybe converted) and 2 Boyz packs.

    I have done orks before, I wish i still had them .

    1. in my opintion i prefered to have loads of sluggas boys them shoota boys,
    but also still give you sluggas some heavy weapons few big shootas and rokkit launchers here and there.

    2. get a few bikes and nobs to lead your sluggas and few buggies or traks with big shootas or rokkit launchers.

    hope that helps form my orky wizdom

    Personaly as i start i think its best to get two units of slugga boyz with three weapons in each go for ranged and dont mix, so maybe all rokkits or all BS or maybe one squad of each.

    My greatest problem this far is the old warbike/warbuggy models. they look like crap. I'm thinking about an all boyz army..

    First off welcome to da Orks.
    You want to keep all your boyz in mobs of 15 or more. But around 20 is the best.
    Every mob needs 3 special weapons...of the same type. Like rokkits or big shootas. At least one mob should be sluggas.
    Every warband needs a leader, so you need a warboss. So start with a standard boss model.

    Youll need some fast attack or heavy support as well.

    2 - 3 killa kanz or a dread is a good bit of heavy dakka. So is a looted Bassie or a Russ.

    A truk boyz mob in a truk and a couple of buggies or bikes is also a good choice.

    But the bottom line will be...What do you like? The Orks are a very custom and flexible list, so figure out what you like and go with that.

    Good luck.
    &quot;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&#33;&quot;

    Yes... i was thinking about having like two squads of 20 orks and a Warboss to start with. I think Slugga Boyz generally owns the day, since they own most things in assault. (omg, 4 attacks on the charge with a 9pts. critter?) And a squad of 16 shoota boyz with 3 big shootas. I might as well add rokkit launchas to the slugga boyz since they are assault weapons, and the boyz need something to destroy tanks with. and of course Nobz with power klaws... with the new assault rules you cannot target a single model.

    The Warboss is going to work like my DA Chaplain, i give him a squad of boyz and they are the spearhead of my attack. ( Warbuggy or not.) Then, should i give my warboss a slugga and power klaw? he could use the slugga when he needs to strike quick, and the power klaw when facing a big thing or is gonna strike last anyway. i mean... str 10 A 5 Ws 5... gotta love it.

    Edit: Yes, and for &#39;eavy support i&#39;ll use a mob of killa kanz. Fast attack will probably be trukk boyz, so they can prevent the enemy from firing against my advancing orks. (Scare factor and cc factor)
