Welcome to Librarium Online!
Statistically improbable, perhaps impossible, but Orks always seem to hit more at BS 2 than even Marines or Eldar Exarchs.
Does this mean that the latent psychic power of the Ork has been transfered to the controlling gamer? I.e, If i want to wipe out a squad using guns, I will (and usually do!) Its the whole "red ones go fasta" effect.
For example, with my Battlewagon (5 bolt on's of coarse!) I can always seem to get 50% hits, and take out a squad in turn 1. Once I only got 2 hits, but both wounded, 1 shining spear died, the other 2 fled off the board in turn one!
Also, Noggin, my Bana Wava, always kills someone in cc. Grabnutz the warboss always survives (apart from when I don't use Bad Moon rules, so its not really him anyway). I have also never lost with the Bad Moon rules. (This may be due to the fact that my regular opponant has built up his Eldar to fight my previous Marine and Tau armies)
Furthermore, reading WD, I discover that rokkits always blow stuff up in battle reports, and several have said their orks hit more than their marine armies.
Does this phenomenon affect any of you?
you've taken all of my luck, I want it back.
my orks might as well not have guns
I roll so many 1s you'd think I was writing in binary
Its a very useful abilty to have I must say. I forgot to mention the rolls I made for zzap gun strength on my B'wagon in one battle. Heres a list: 10, 9, 10, 8, 9, 6 (the last one was perfect as I wanted it classed as defensive so I could fire a rokkit also! Which hit!)
Oh yeah, and I did lose once. In a battle where I couldn't kill a Falcon, where the senario neaded EVERY unit slain for me to win. It was the last thing left facing well over 3/4 of my army, but it kept out of the Ork effectiveness range of 24" jumping around until I ran out of turns...
But still, I had nearly all of my army left, so I won really...
One minor exeption, is when I charge Flash Gitz into combat, they failed against Tau fire warriors
Although I was facing the Tau jamminess in cc that I always encounter when I play them (My crisis team wiped out Creed, Kell and 15 Guard in one round of cc, where they charged me!!!)
Back to the point, Orks rule, amen.
My tankbusta squad are my fave unit. The first game I used them in they took down two wave serpents in the first two turns. Tankbusta's rule..........
I have a box with green dice with yellow speckles and they just rule the world for my orks. I used them for my black templars a few times and they were just aweful. It's amazing what faith in the green blighters can do for you.
i was playing hero batlles using warload ghazchkull i charge some corny ig hero usad my power the ear done no damage then he inficted 3 wounds and i failed all three 2+ inv saves i was soo ****** off but it was pretty funny i guess
TAU suck, Blood angels rule
Scratch everything I just said, I just played twice, and drew the fisrt to within 7 vp's of each other (in his favour) and got flattened in the second. I'm way too reliant on my Battle wagon, which a plucky plasma round killed it in turn 1. Then again I shouldn't of taken it in a 750 pt battle...
Having said that my army isn't a huge selection so I needed something to protect the boyz.
Oh well. I did take down a wraithlord with a Zzap gun, Kustom Mega blasta, and big shootas though...
None of my vehicles have ever been destroyed. Admittedly I tend to play in small games, so I usually have at most 2 truks and a battlewagon, but every time they get shot I roll a 6 for my armour plating and the missile or whatever just bounces off...
I did that against Tau. Multiple (2) railguns kept penetrating (glancing thanks to KFF) but I always rolled 6's. Best peice of wargear ever! But in those aforementioned last 2 games, I always rolled fours.
My usuall opponant, who plays eldar, usually tries to kill the B'wagon with a Wraithlord, but it always dies. HOWEVER he runs in with a farseer at strength 9 and never fails to destroy it!!! Which he did again!
I think I should put my Warboss in a trukk, and get a stormboyz mob, just to provide other routes of attack. And stop every weapon firing at the Wagon... At the moment their only other target is the grot mob.
I love that.........Originally Posted by KingBurriss
