Hey orkies I don't win very often so I have to tell everyone. Yesterday I got a solid victory against a balanced ultramarines list, the first solid victory I've had in quite a while. I play Bloodaxes normally (no wonder I always lose) but yesterday I changed my army up a bit and it worked awesomely. I used a 1500 pt. freeboota list that include a wierdboy (thank you GW Australia Ork FAQ!) and the mission was secure and control.
Warboss in a battlewagon with 10 burna boyz
20 slugga boyz + wierdboy
10 Trukk boyz
This list worked really well, even though my wagon got axed in the second turn and my boss and the burnas had to walk. The 2 kommando squads and the sluggas seized an objective each and held on for grim death while the Russ and the Wierdboy provided fire support. I targete his transports first and managed to immobilize most of his vehicles (he had a land raider prometheus, a predator, whirlwind, and a rhino) and when his termies and commander deep strck next to my warboss my trukkers swept out from behind a rock, charged and wiped them out in two rounds of cc with choppa and burna death. The marine player was a bit unlucky I'll admit, the only thing his whirlwind did in 6 turns was kill 2 kommandos! He had a good army for fighting Orks too, loads of heavy bolters. The prometheus is covered in the things!
It was beautiful, just one of those games where you make all the right decisions and the dice gods shine on you.
It's taken two bloody years but I finally feel like I have an ork army that works together well and could undertake a range of missions effectively. Plus wierdboys rock.
Good Job. It always feels better winning with a under dog army than it does with a steam roller.
you know whats fun to do is give your Kammandos Tankbusta bombs and Infiltrate behind his tanks:shifty: ,nice win

Thanks guys. I don't really know why I posted this up I was just stoked that I actually won, and it felt like I did it using tactics, as opposed to having a killer army or lucky dice or an inexperienced opponent. It's a good feeling.

I give you credit for that list, and i will agree its nice to win with a themed list and realize you have general tactics as compared to relying on 3+ saves, or terminator army, or just we'll be back. Nicely done. I had a similar experience with my buggy army vs a infantry based sisters army.
