    Your welcome Stormy :)

    Played my first game yesterday with my Orks with some mates. It was (rather unrealistically) my Orks teamed with an Eldar army and a Necron Force against a HUUUUGE (but cannon fodder :D) Imperial Guard and Witch Hunters army.

    I only have two fifteen-strong mobs of Boyz, a squad of Kommandos (led by Cap'n Jakk, I'll post a pic when he's finished ;)) and a stand in Warboss, but they faired quite well, especially after a Leman Russ demolisher cannon blew up ALL BUT TWO of my first mob, and a Sentinel squadron shot the rest. 15 dead in one turn :(

    And i managed to immobilise one of his tanks and shoot three Guardsmen WITH ORK SHOOTING!!! I was never expecting that! :evil:

    Um.. it seems we missunderstood each other. In Armageddon they are just mentioned and described a bit, but infact they do have their own codex. Quinn, you have this one?

    When was that released?

    I haven't really got anything since the last release of the SM, as I haven't had the time to paint/assemble any of my stuff.

    Sweet! (I hope... "revamped" sometimes means "scrap your old army" :p)

    Revamped this time, I think, means new models, battleforce, and codex, but still letting your old army work. At least, so i've heard.

    After reading, I think it just makes my army a bit more flexible. That Combat Squads thing is definatley good. However, I wonder if it lets me have another transport choice or not... (I'm guessing not, because that would REALLY help my army ;))

    I think I saw Whirlwinds on a BT list in Codex Armageddon. Codex Black Templars states that they can`t use Whirlwinds, or Devastator Squads (not sure if those are mentioned in teh Armageddon)

    Okay, I`m reading the Space Wolf Omnibus, and Ragnar and his buddies are in an ork infested city, riding in an ork buggy, disguised as orks (stoopid lookin` `orned `elmets) and they have just been challenged to a race! :lol:

    Since I`ll prolly go with orcs in WHFB, I might as well go with orks in 40k, I love them green monsta`s afterall (lotsa usable bitz too!)

    BTW: how much is a "score" of men? 10? 20? William King seems awfully fond of that word..

    I think it would be 20? but that is just a guess. :) Glad to see the Taskmaster back!

    :lol: Sounds about right :D

    Thats one of the things i like most about the Orks. You can use all sorts of bits from both WHFB and 40K, and if you make any mistakes, you can just say "they're Orks!" :D

    I recently bought the plastic WHFB Orc Warlord sprues, which has given me an Ork Warboss (with converted kombi shoota: shoota/rokkit) and possibly up to three Nobs, using the other Warlord heads on the bodies of regular Boyz, and some of the other bitz from the sprue.

    Ultra marine w/ grey knights detachment. Few in number but hits hard and harder to fall.

    For WF, Elves and dwarves. These two armies are contradiction in turns of strategy, but both are fun to play.
