Well I've strayed away from the KoS and Evil Sunz and just decided on either deathskulls or blood axes. But has anybody really had any success with kommandos and lootas. I mean I don't really see the benefits. I mean a unit of kommandos has infilitration but they're only 10 guys. Than with lootas they blow up if they roll a 1 and is it me or do you throw more 1s then 6s.
"Are farts supposed to be lumpy?"
i find kommandos the most useless unit in da ork army (but that's just my opinion), while lootas can be great- give them 3 relatively cheap lascannons from anti-tank squads, upgrade one to a nob and equip him with 3 ammo runts and a launcher or shoota/skorcha. that's about 50 points more than a unit of komandos but can do a lot more mayhem, especially when supported by big tanks. go for death skullz.
aka the little flamethrower girl, aka jachu_ka
yes, i agree.
i dont see any merit in taking lots of kommandos, as they arnt really that good...
lootas, on the other hand, are much better, and much more fun to play!
so whip out those sniper rifles, lascannons and heavy bolters and put them with some good bsilisks\russes. that should be a very army, even if you do ed up killing all your troops in a blunder of 1's...

Well thanks a lot guys I've decided to go with Death Skulls (plus I like blue too, hey that ryhmes). Would it be wrong to have 3 HS slots with ordnance and then 3 loota squads 2 w/4 lascannons and 1 w/4 heavy bolters and then put the rest of the points in boyz each led by a mekboy with KFF?
"Are farts supposed to be lumpy?"
The real question is whether it is possible to take 9 squads of Lootas, give all of them heavy plasma guns and all the nobs 3 ammo runts. Has this ever been done? If so, what would they be like to play against? I guess you could only get 5 of them in a 1500 point game...which is less cool. Anywho, there wouldn't be that many orks on the field for the points, heavy bolters will slaughter units at a time, and they still can kill themselves. I wonder how imbalanced it would be...
-Gorfang, hypothesizing what death skulls would do after killing a company of Dark Angels.
I'd say lootas are a good idea, if i could i would have a 10 man loota squad with 4 plasma cannons. since they are plasma they get hot on a roll of 1 anyways so it really evens out the ork "ops sorry mate" rule, and of corse plasma is the best marine/chaos killer weopon.
What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
i sez go wif da deathskullz!!!!!
i have used them for so long now and like ive said before, the orks are natural looters(though dice dont give a damn fer that)
WWAAGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!&# 33;!!!!!!!!!!!!!!&# 33;!!!!!!!!!!!!!!&# 33;!!!!!!!!!!!!!!&# 33;!!!!
wWWwwAaaaAAgggGGGhHHHhhh!!!! = DeAth
Deathskullz are great, you can go with a mix of loota types, the big squads with plasma that has been said befor and then smaller squads with morters, no need to hit, can hide behind trees and can pin!

the only thing i would loot would be tanks especially guard tanks after all they just drop pie plates everywhere and that rocks so i would only loot basilisks leman russ battle tanks and demolishers
you can run from the darkness but it will find you.
Don't forget that lootas also get to loot the transport option from the squad they looted weapons from (as per the 4.0 FAQ) so a unit of 6 boyz could loot 4 lascannon from a dev squad AND the TL lascannon razorback. This way you have an anti-tank weapon that has a longer range than 24".
The enemies of the Emperor fear many things. They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death. Yet there is one thing they fear above all others. They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!
