hmmm, shrike is nasty but my fav is still a pair of winged slaneshi dp's. 310 points for the both of them and with lash and wings against any army but eldar you're probly going to get a first turn assault. 2 i6 dp's go through a marine squad like a buzz saw, and tie up orks nicely until the supporting beserkers make it to the fun(assuming the didn't make the 1st turn charge) what they do to tau and 'crons is just wrong.

when you gotta shoot, shoot. Don't talk...

While it's not that effective, an Ork Dethkopta can do 42". 24" pre-game Scout move (yes, I asked Phil Kelly at Balt GD, they can turboboost on their scout move), then their standard 12/6 move assault on the first turn. Hmmmm, 5th ed, sounds like good tank hunters, given that you assault rear armor...................

Ouch.

Too rich for my blood.
They'd be deployed in cover with infriltrate and have the stealth bonus.
But You're right they are a bit pricey and risky.... Like taking a dev. squad full of plasma cannons. Great when they work but when they backfire they're a bitch....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

That does sound good, I thought Dethkoptas were good before, but now I find out they get scouts? damn.... almost has me thinking of trying to get a Kult of Speed army....buzzsaws, blasters and bombs, and on the first turn, you're stuck in.
