Welcome to Librarium Online!
As a new Ork player, and 40k player in general ive got much to learn and a long
road ahead. Have played a few games against my friends Ork and Guard armies and mostly got my ass wooped. Was hoping you guys could impart some wisdom?
I havent got a list put together yet but have a fair idea where i want to take my army. I dont wanna go extreme hoard or extreme mech but somewhere in the middle. Wanted to include a couple of 30 Boyz squads. 2 Battlewagons, one for Warboss and Ard Boyz and one for Nobz. would then maybe chuck in rokkit Kans? Kommandos? Bikes? Would a list like this be viable? It doesnt have to be super competative but I would like a win under my belt at some point.
Lastly, if anyone has any buying/tactic/painting/modelling advice advice then please feel free to pm me.
Welcome to the Waaagh! Your list sounds quite viable and potentially competitive. People generally recommend shoota boyz for the big 30 mobs, although sluggas are also fine. You'll want to include a nob with a Power Klaw (as you will in each of the units you named, save the kans of course). PK's are a must for warbosses and you'll probably want to have several in your nob unit; same with komandos and bikes.
If you have any more specific advice, post it up and we'll help. Have fun and good luck!
Thanks for the reply dude. Yeah, I kind figured PK's would be a definate. Just managed to hack the Choppa (and nearly my thumb!) of my Warboss and give him a PK. Got at least 6 Nobs with pks aswell. If I intend on using my bikes as a shooty support unit would you bother with a pk?
Do you ever use Kommandos? I like the idea of running two squads, one with Snikrot one with Nob. Any thoughts?
haven't used Kommandos yet, but I've found my bikes to do very well at the shoot and avoid game, laying down alot of fire.... the PK is definitely worth it because they'll see combat eventually, and you need something to crack armor... they can reach the big guns hanging around at the back quickly... and if it hasn't moved, that demolisher's getting ripped apart by the PK
What size squad do you find works best? I was thinking of running a squad of 7 includin Nob(who's arm im gonna have to replace)?
