Welcome to Librarium Online!
I feel that in my area, ork players are rare, is it that the fact that people who look down at them; underestimate them? I hear such comments like "orks are weaksauce" and such stuff like that. They do not understand the power!!
How about you uther' orky wagghhbosses? Do you feel that other players think lower ob you coz' you be an orky?
The little 'tards that play only space marines and necrons think orks are weak because of the negatives of the lists. Veterans know that ork players tend to be the most cunning and sneaky bastards around, because we've got plans that take an ENTIRE ARMY of 6+ saves and we make it work. So newbs think we're weak and pros know orks are the coolest.

justlike Sandhawk already said, it depends on the experience of the opposing players.
I myself know darn well what Orks can but a lot of the other beginning players just say like "he they don't have good saves and lousy BS, they suck."
ummm....i've never cared to ask any of my opponents nor have i ever had them laugh at my sea of green as it rips thier army to shreds....
wWWwwAaaaAAgggGGGhHHHhhh!!!! = DeAth
i guess i do underestimate them, not out of noobishness, but because i can beat their leader with mine...i know full well that the rest of the army is a ***** to finish off, but the thought of their leader dying makes me think 'ah ha!'...
i know you have to be damned careful playing them, and you need to shoot alot...but im just about to play orks with my BA, in a close combat orientated battle....should be amusing
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
i agree. when i started playing with orks a few years back, everyone i played with laughed at my greenies, thinking their fancy power armour or high tech weaponry would beat me everytime...
talk to any one of the regular ppl i play today, you find that the ones that know me longest have developed a nervous twitch whenever they hear the word ork.
the rest are coming along nicely as conversions to orkdom
Yeah, this is excellent! TY Angel of Rust!
Graktoof the vile, victor of 1000 battles, partial credit to 1000 more, and sore loser about the other 8000...
If you have ever faced Orks (as IG or Tau) its awful hard to underestimate them. There will always ALWAYS be more of them than you. They have better close combat weapons. They have better assault weapons. They can and will get into close combat with someone in turn two (if not turn one).
I will continue to fight them, but if I get my butt handed to me like I did this past weekend (three battles: 400, 1000, 1250 three straight losses) I might be inclined to start my own ork horde.
Plus they are alot of fun...you never know what could happen with them.
Good Luck to the Orks. May the purging fire of the Imperium be quick.

Orsk are under-estimated until they are about half deployed. Usually the opponent has already placed all his model at that point.
I like to say: "That's it!?!?!?!?"
Yes, they are underestimated.
Though most noobs takes them in like 10 men squads and that is very stupid.
If I would play orks I would have them in atleast 20 ork squads. Sure they can die quickly but if you have like 4 of these squads, the atleast SOME will come forth and kill many many things.
I underestimated Orks in my first game and was left with 10 dark eldar warriors in 1500 pts. :wacko:
I have never made that mistake again.
I find it really fun to watch an Ork vs Space Marines (1500 pts game) on 5'x5' boards, the space marine will be in CC in like turn three because he CAN'T destroy 4x20 orks in 2 turns.
Though if the SM army is CC, he can't kill that many orks because the rest will be out of kill zone. Sure they Orks may loose the close combat, but that Mob test is very usefull.
Orks are very cool! :lol:
orks vs necron troops=fun 5 of my orks destroyed a 10 warrior squad of my friend till he destroyed the 3 that lived with another squad.
