Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have played for a few years as chaos, but i got bored with my petty amount of men being blasted to hell. and back. twice. but if every 1 in my army was dead, how was i supposed to win? but i saw an ork army play (fully painted and funny) against my rival, and my rival was over whelmed! as of then, we both knew where our future lies: in orks!
any way, i'm gonna start collecting orks, and i've thought out some army fluff:
Why they fight: their orks + for khorne
Special: no gretchin, or weapon upgrades for normal slugga boyz.
i would like to know ur thoughts on this idea, and some advice on what to have.
In WAAAAGH!!! the Orks, the old ork suppliment book (back when GW gave a damn about orks), they discussed the stormboyz as being more khornesque then regular boyz. More disciplinary, more bloodthirsty for the sake of blood instead of for the sheer enjoyment of fighting, that sort of thing. So you've got a fluff reason right there. However...BAD idea. Grots are a mobile invulnerable/cover save, and help you get your boyz to combat faster with their difficult terrain rerolls. We like grots. We like grots ALOT.Originally Posted by thurgor
As for no weapon upgrades... another bad idea. If you want them to be sheer combat monkies, I'd suggest burnas.

so do my orks. but they always eat ALL of them . ne way, i haven't got the codex yet,but i'll prob be getting befor christmas (i'm not spending any money as i'm saving up for paintballing)
Burna's are a must and can easily be converted out of the shoota's on the sprue and a few bits of wire or you could go with the Khorne angle and say its a mutation and have the burna built into the arm.
