Welcome to Librarium Online!
I think everyone agrees the new deff dreads look awesome but it seems that experienced players also agree they are not worth the points. I was wondering what people think of the experimental rules for the new Mega Dread from Forgeworld. I think that again everyone would agree that it looks awesome but would it be worth the points ?
I'm new to the ork world so i would really like to hear what more experienced players think. A big cool mega dread or a bunch of little cans?
the experimental rules for the mega dread are on the forgeworld site

I believe it is a huge ripoff. It is extremely expensive and not a whole lot better than a standard dred. It can still die easily, not many more attacks... really disapointingly expensive.
I wouldn't use it competitively. Kans are considered to be the best deal, dreds are less efficient, while the big guy is the worst deal points-wise. However, the model almost justifies its purchase and use.
I was hoping the kill kannon, the 5+ invernable save and the +1 roll on vehicle dammage chart would make it worth the points. Also i like that not only the front armor is 13 but also the side armor wich isnt bad at all for orks i think.
But maybe all that doesnt matter and a whole bunch of kans would still be much better ... but that mega dread looks so awesome, maybe having it completely painted and on the table will distract my oponnent enough for him to make some mistakes lol.
Use every unit in the book. And also use the cool experimental units too! I suppose for competitive tournament play you are looking to explicitly win perhaps but in casual games I am a big proponent of dredds and would love to use a Mega Dredd sometime as well.
Also that model really is amazing and is a pretty good price when you consider it. To me at any rate
I agree, the price is very reasonable. It's less than the price of two deff dreads and for coolness i would rather go with the mega than with 2 deffs.
I'm not a competitive player so i dont wanna win all the time .. i just want a fair match so i dont get beaten every time either (i havent played much games yet so having a bad army on top of that wouldnt win me much games at all :p )
Are you kidding me?
Ork Mega Dread
That's possibly the coolest model you could possibly field! Ever! Well.. apart from your own kustom jobbies..
I'd pay 210 points for one every game (I think the dual kill kannon arms would look absolutely AMAZING), even if it didn't fit, just to field this prized behemoth.
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.

I agree....the model is amazing and when I get a chance I hope to add one to my collection. It would be a regular at every Apoc game....
