Hello everybody. I just purchased the assault on black reach set with a friend. I took orks, he took SM. However, i looked at the introductory pamphlet and realized my army is 135 points smaller than his. So, my question is for 135 pts, what would be the best possible units i could get to even out our forces? my codex hasnt arrived yet, so i dont know what the point values are. thx in advance
I strongly suggest taking 9 lootas. They have 48 inch range and can throw down D3 Strength 7 AP 3 shots. Blow his Dreadnought up with these and watch the look on his face.
im glad to hear this. I really liked the looks of lootas, but didnt know what their value was
Some would say that they aren't good for the points but they must just never get lucky with them. In my last 3 games my 10 man squad of lootas has killed 7 tanks. I think that makes up for their expense.
The only downside I can see is that the actual loota models ARE quite expensive. The $25 box only lets you build 4 lootas and a mek. However with some creative bits work you can make a lot more out of the box. I bought 2 boxes and made all the lootas. I used some lascannons from an imperial heavy squad and combined them with lots of bits to make 2 more lootas with the mek bodies. Then i chopped off the arms and heads of 8 aobr boyz and made 8 burnas with the gear from the lootas set. So if you buy ebay you can get 8(10) lootas and 8 burnas for around $35.
Lootas are good units and would work well. To be orky though I would get a Battlewagon with a deff rolla and a big shoota and maybe armor plates load it with some boyz and ram it into his dreadnought while screaming waaaagh! I am not sure how many points exactly this is I don't have my codex with me right now you may have to drop the plates. All joking aside I think the BW would give him something to worry about and is a really awesome model. I am not sure about the assault on blackreach contents and how it would fit in though as it is a foot centric force. Anyways just my two cents good luck and welcome to the waaaaagh.
well considering he is playing against his buddies black reach marines that means he has the multi melta dread which will make short work of that battlewagon.
the lootas will survive much longer and potentially do alot more damage.
you could also take 3 killa kans or a deff dred + 1 kan, something like that
leave the moderating to the moderators
if pro is the opposite of con, does that mean progress is the opposite of congress?
I definitely reccomend burna boys. They are awesome. With a flame template each ( up to 15 ) they make short work of everybody from tyranids to imperial guard. Plus the models look great. The only problem is that they ( like ) the lootas they come in quite small, expensive packs.
would it be worth it to have 10-15 shootas footsloggin by themselves?
No, that unit would get run off the table way too fast and would be a waste of
points, almost anything would be better, even grots.
