Every time I see your's, and because I use orange on mine as well, it makes me want to go paint more of them.

Sketching out summer painting plans.  I will be buying whatever they produce for orks of course but I am also getting 10 more flashgitz and the gretchin necessary to make the ammo runts.  After that I do want another gorkanaut. 

Current plans:

5 Stormboyz
Zagstruck
20 Shoota Boyz
11 Sluggas
10 Flashgitz

This is in addition to:
50 Bloodletters
1 Throne of Blood
12 Juggernauts

3 Rhinos
10 Bezerkers

Full summer but i do get 9 weeks of vacation....

9 weeks off! Amazing, wouldn’t want to go back to work.
 

I doubt they will release more than an extra character for the orks. Maybe the rumoured ‘Prime ork ‘ version of ghazzskull

I recon you can do it though. An achievable list
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

We are playing an escalation game for Warhammer currently.  My 500 point list had my meka dredd.  He is a blades to use and cost me a lot so it’s nice to see him!











In 3 games I had 3 wins but two of them had me left with only my big mek and the Mega Dredd!  The third was a wipe out as I barreled across the board at the Mechanicus line which was a bit under powered on anti-vehicle.

Your Orks are looking great. Like Artoban had said - these are some of the best greenies that I've ever seen. :smile2:

That would be fantastic!

Orks are hands down my favorite army.  I just love playing them and orks are really fun to fight.  They die fairly easily so something is always happening!

My 10 Flash gitz arrived yesterday.  They are great models.  Will be a blast to paint, but man at $52 for 5 they are pretty pricey!

The meka dredd is 256.  He is a little over coated to be honest.  His shooting is nothing compared to the redemptive dread.  His melee is abot the same.  He as a few more wounds I think with 16 and has a minor wound ignoring trait that bleeds away quickly.  He biggest benefit is the Justin force field but those are easy to come by!  For less than 100 points more you can take the much better morkanaut.

I love those Mecha Dreds. They're rough-looking, orky to the core, war machines. Such cool models. :blush:

I dropped in some Lootas and swapped the Meka Dread for a unit of 10 flash gitz (my favorite ork unit by far).

The lootas stole the game.  They were the MVP in both games I played.  That 40 inch range and two wounds makes them a terrific option for nailing vehicles and wiping out multiwound elites.

The flashgitz were beaters too.  Having 3 S5 attacks at BS3 is daunting while their 3 S5 ap-2 BS4 shots makes them a real threat in shooting.



I did leave 9 lootas at home so some big shootas were pressed into service here...

Had a really fun game today against Slaanesh Iron Warriors.  I won turn 2 when my opponent conceded.  We were playing the Relic.

My list:

Speed freak 1500

Big Mek on Warbike: kustom force field; big choppa, Headwoppah relic108
Big Mek on Warbike: kustom force field; big power klaw 114

Zhadsnark da Ripper 122

12 Boyz: Boss Nob (shoota; power klaw) 85

12 Boyz: Boss Nob (shoota; power klaw) 85

12 Boyz: Boss Nob (shoota; power klaw) 85

4 Grot Tanks: Kommanda (rokkit launcha); 4 × rokkit launcha; 4 × shoota 180

4 Grot Tanks: Kommanda (rokkit launcha); 4 × rokkit launcha; 4 × shoota 180

Trukk 82

Trukk 82

Trukk 82

Burna-bommer: skorcha missiles 152

Dakkajet: 148

1,505 points

His list:

1 Demon Prince - Elixer of some sort. Sword and one set of claws.
1 Warsmith

10 Cultists
10 Marines with two missile launchers and mark of slaanesh
10 Marines with two missile launchers and mark of slaanesh

Maulerfield
defiler
Flying dragon thing (can't remember the name).

5 chaos spawn
5 chaos spawn

My warboss finished off a maulfiend and then got charged by this demon prince.  He took 6 wounds but managed to kill the demon in return.  Thats a great turn out if you ask me!



The dragon tied up my dakkajet and tried to kill it but the jet managed to limp away with 3 wounds remaining.  The defiler warp timed into a unit of grots and the trukk but only managed to kill a single tank.  As a whole, the tanks did good work, almost killing the maulerfiend and doing some damage to the dragon.



Boyz leapt from the trukk and charged after their own trukk ate the overwatch.  They dragged the dragon down to 4 wounds and the chaos player conceded before I could finish it off.



Defiler in combat



End game action shots





Shot of the table when the game wrapped up.  He had only the dragon, 14 marines, and a defiler on its way to dead.  No way to deal with what I had on the table.



As a whole the two fliers did fine.  The dakkajet put 7 wounds on spawn in one round and another 4 the next.  Was in rough shape though by then.  The burnabommer was fantastic.  Killed 7 cultists with its first bomb and caused the other 3 to die from morale then did 6 to a marine unit with he second.  It managed to put three wounds on spawn from shooting in two turns.

Zhadsnark did Zhadsnark things.  He first turn charged into a wounded Maulerfiend and killed it then consolidated into the unit of ten marines on that side.  The demon prince tried to kill him but failed, doing 6 wounds then was annihilated with mortal 2 mortal wounds and 7 normal ones from the Rippa.

The grot tanks did their thing, beating up the mauler, dragon, and defiler.  I only got two rounds of shooting before the opponent conceded.

All in all this army threw a pile of small to mid sized vehicles out there, too many for my opponent to deal with effectively before the game got out of hand on him.

As any good Ork boy would do. That's a pretty good battle. Always good to see the Ork warboss cracking skulls and taking names. How do you feel the orks are measuring up competitively? I occasionally hear lots of groaning, but at my local club they seem to do well considering they're still an index army.

The Demon prince looks sweet as well. Where's it from?
