    I want to start off with Orks - they'll be my first army. Tomorrow I'll be getting a codex, but I'm just wondering what you guys reckon would be a good list to begin with. So far I've been recommended two rather different lists by a couple of people:

    _________________

    Warboss w/ powerklaw, choppa and cybork body

    burna boyz x10 w/ burnax4 AND mek w/ kustom force field n choppa

    shoota boyz x25 w/ big shoota x3, nob w/ big shoota n choppa

    slugga boyz x25 w/ rokkit x3, nob w/ powerklaw n choppa

    tankbusta boyz x10 w/ rokkit x3, nob w/ rokkit n choppa

    grots x30 AND slaver w/ choppa, slugga, n squighound

    leman russ w/ heavy bolter side sponsons, grot riggers n hull mounted heavy bolter

    warbikes x5

    Flashgits x5 w/ big shoota x4, nob w/ big shoota n choppa

    I like the Boyz models, so the idea of having lots of them doesn't sound bad to me. I want to play for fun - I'm not a competitive person, although beating my friends every now and isn't something I'd say no to. They all have Space Marines, except for a guy with Tau and another guy with Ork Speed Freeks.

    If you don't know what you want you end up with a lot of stuff you don't.

    They both look dead 'ard an' propa.

    Rants about the first though: Im not a fan of shoota boyz.... And flash gitz especialy, they are big points sink for BS2... Orks dont have the best aim. BTW, The Flash gitz MUST all have the same kustom job, even if they have Big Shootas.

    Id suggest getting rid of the Gitz and Shootas and getting another mob of Slugga Boyz, or some Hard or Skar boyz.


    Lookin good though!

    Been reading through some older threads and I found some advice that sounds very good.

    Someone who asked about starting off with Orks was told to buy two boxes of Boyz, a box of Nobz, a Warboss, a blister of heavy weapons and a blister of burnas. That sounds good to me.

    Eighteen of those Boyz are sluggas, twelve are shootas and two carry big shootas - converted from spare weapons.

    I heard that a squad of 10 shoota boyz is good for your run away sluggas to mob up with if they fail the eadership check.

    get rid of the shoota boyz all together and have just slugga boyz, you can have 3 big shootas with them and the benefit of choppas&#33;

    Hmm... I&#39;ve decided upon Necrons for my main army. But I&#39;d like a small Ork force - 500 points. Just for little games and a bit of variety and because Orks are amusing.

    How does the recommended core army over at the Games Workshop sound?

    Warboss
    - &#39;Eavy Armour
    - Choppa
    - Slugga
    - 71 points

    16 Slugga Boyz
    - Nob
    - 3 Big Shootas
    - 179 points

    16 Slugga Boyz
    - Nob
    - 164 Big Shootaz
    - 164 points

    Ork Dreadnought
    - 2 Big Shootas
    - 86 points

    Total:

    500 points

    I&#39;m just wondering if that with r some guys with rokkits or burnas instead of the Dreadnought will be the way to go.

    Ditch the dreadnought, use the points to throw four more boyz in each of the mobz, then buy a big shoota or something for your warboss. Have one mob have 3 big shootaz for anti-infantry and the other have 3 rokkit launchas to take care of any wayward armor (I played a 500 point list that was similar today, took out an opponent&#39;s crisis suit in one shot with an 8 point rokkit launcha).

    Awesome. Thanks for that. Once I learn the basics with Necrons I&#39;ll how I go with da Orks. Two totally different armies can&#39;t be a bad thing, especially seeing most of the friends I&#39;ll be playing have bloody Space Marines.
