    Blood Angels Dread

    How are we *as orks* supposed to take down BA Dreads when if equipped with 2 blood talons (re-rolls to wound) can tear through a mob of 30 boys & we can't attack back initiative wise thanx.

    I think the blood talons average out at 7-9 kills on the charge, so you've got reserves. Reserves with power klaws. Not ideal, but really, ork mobs are exactly what blood talons are intended to counter; the large, cheap, standard-toughness infantry units that regular Dreads tend to get bogged down in. The Strength drop means the Furioso can't tackle tanks or other walkers, or insta-kill HQs and Nobs.

    Alternatively, you could just Deffrolla it.

    No maybe not the *boarding plank* but would tankbustas be a good idea & just kick exploding footballs into it.

    The blood talon dreads are as scary as land raiders for orks. But keep in mind they die just like any other dread. So the only real tip i can give that isn't already common knowledge to anyone who has faced a dreadnought before is this:

    The blood talons need to be duel wielded in order to reroll wounds. So that means if you blow off one talon due to a weapon destroyed result he can't reroll wounds anymore.
    What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.

    Deffrolla is the silver bllit. But Otherwise you have to shoot it down before it reach CC. Tankbustaz, Lootaz, Rokket buggies, Deffkoptas. Bring him down!

    If all else fail. Run away, lure him away with a throw away unit or block his advance with a vehicle.

    With the right upgrades and support he re-rolls hits(3+) and wounds(2+) with no armour save and then get extra attacks for each wound. Rinse and repeat. Then add the fearless wounds and he can wipe a 30 boy mob in one turn.

    He still gets to re-roll wounds (it's a lightning claw) but he loses the ridonkulous special ability where every wound grants another attack. That's the one that requires two talons. Your advice still applies.
