In the process of starting Orks, and was just wondering how the little green men handle lots of heavy armor? Where I play alot of people play marines with large quantities of land raiders. How do the Orks handle more than 1-2 land raiders?
Chaos Space Marines
The more land raiders they take, the less beakies they have, the easier you win.
If you use trukks you can just blitz up to one with a unit or two and klaw it (warboss' are especially rippy).
If you footslog just spread out to limit their board space.
Powerklaws and Deff Rollas. Deff Rollas make a mockery of AV14 right now. I've seen Klaws with Boarding Planks work really well for a guy here, under-used upgrade in my opinion.
Deffrollas and Powerklaws as mentioned above. The bad thing about PK is that you have to charge the vehicle, and therfor the nasty things inside can charge you next round! About the boarding planks.. I always use them on my wagons, but I have taken them away from my trukks. Ive actually managed to keep my shootaboys safe inside the wagon, shooting while driving up by the tanks side, and the nob can safely lean over board of the vehicle and open the tank like a "drve-by-tankopener". I usually get in close to deffroll with my wagon these days, but when the shooting is needed, I rely on the PK to the rear from the Boarding planks. Im not sure if I can both ram and use the boarding plank. Anyone know this? I would rather have 4 str9 PK attack in the rear of a vehicle than D6 str 10 in the front... but when it comes to 14 all around. Deffrolla is probably better than boarding planks.
The nice thing with a fully loaded battlewagon is, after you have a sucsessfull ramming and if you actually kill the LR, your boys can jump out and shoot / charge the guys who just lost their transport!
Sweet! I just read the entry for deff rollas again, and I guess I had a retard moment when I read it earlier, for some reason I forgot about ramming tanks and what not and thought you could only ram infantry units. Sooo this means that I would need to buy 3 battlewagons asap for the army. Thanks for the replies, this erased the only hesitation I had for starting Orks.
Chaos Space Marines
If you do that make sure you buy a KFF Mek, they're absolutely needed for Battlewagons.
The Landraider is the only AV14 vehicle that the boyz can't crush, because it doesn't have a weak side. My strategy is to ignore it and kill everything else. When the Terminators inside get out and charge something, I just jump them with the rest of my army.
It used to give me fits, but not anymore. The only time I worry about killing it is when everything else is dead.
How does 1-3d6 S10 hits not crush a Land Raider? If you're running foot Orks yeah just ignore it but Mech Orks laugh Land Raiders off.
Yes but maybe not everyone else knows that?
