I might be going against orks soon, at a larger pt limmit, like 2000pts. I was wondering what you guys and gals think is a better ork killer, the nightbringer or a monolith. Also, what unit do you think is over all best at mowing the lawn, I mean, killing orks.
I think a great bumper sticker would be as follows:
Proud parent of a child whose self-confidence is good enough that he doesn't need me advertising his minor scholastic achievements on my carclick me
not that ive played against orks or w/e but i would take a monolith. the ctan is VERY likely going to get outnumbered and chopped down with numbers plus u only get a 4+ save in cc and only move a measly 6 inches. What u need to do with the monolith is well since he is a horde army let him bunch up everyone and deepstrike right on top of him since they have to move if u land on them and fire the guass flux arc with all those squads in range. plus he cant get u in cc since he hits u on 6.
monolith hard to hit and strong and cheaps you out of CC
ctan not enogh attacks to be really effetive and HQ and nobs can take him down

Bob: If you had a dollar for every 60 cents...
you'd be Canada.
Bill: actually i think its more like 70 cents.

i would go with the nightbringer. i doubt the str of the orks is 5, it is probably 4. and I dont think str 4 can hurt a t8. walk him up into a big pile and death gaze them until the scarabs come home. you may lose a couple wounds from him due to shooting but they are bad shots.
Yea, I'm gonna go witht he monolith. But on to other matters. Would I be smart to take any cc units? Mainly, a Destroyer lord Wraith strike unit, or flayed ones. And what about the Tomb spyder? is its fairly low attacks and wbb bonus make it worth it? And what would be best to take after that? Lots of destroyers and immortals? Mass troops? In a nut-shell,I'm asking: should I even remotly consider a cc unit, or stay with all shooty, and what units are best against orks over all?
Personally I would not recommend getting into CC with orks. You could bring a squad of Immortals and use a Lord with VoD and and blast the heck out of them. You definatly have a shooting advantage. I would use it in your favor. However a squad of flayed ones would be fun to deep strike on him but I'm not sure how well they would fair againsts his Nobs and what not.
Anyway just my thoughts. . .
I'd have to hands down give it to ctan.
Don't forget orks base stats are STR 3
Its not going to hurt this star god.
plus he would be wasting some pts to just get str 4 ones.. as they aren't any stronger.
You could easily wipe out orks with it.
It would even serve as a magnet, as your main force moves up, this guy is slaughtering.
I'd prefer a Monolith...
But if you're going with C'tan I'd go with the Deciever as he can use:
Decieve to make your opponents flee or become pinned (after the appropriate morale check).
Misdirect to leave CC before blows are struck, effectively making him unchargeable (Thus making Ork CC useless).
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
