Well he's S10 with 7 or so attacks when charging = 1+ dead ride. Personally I thing just footslogging mass Tesla would be a better bet, plus a Dlord and Destroyers to a) kill his ride and b) clean him up in CC.

My take on this was either use my smackin nobz combo, or take a doomsday ark or doomscythe, it would instant death the nobz and the wouldn't be able to get an armour save or feel no pain, and then for added lulz add obyron or overlord (overlord probably less risky given he can take a 3++) and then challenge his ass.

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

Obyron wouldn't get his best rule, Cleaving Counterblow, against him, since Thraka strikes at I1, what with his Powerklaw and all. Plus he can Instant Death Obyron.

You can alternatively just tarpit him with a squad of warriors he can't sweeping advance so is hardly goiing to threaten anything else then if you position another unit close enough then the first squad just stands up again ready to tarpit him again.

Consider that Gaz can Waaaagh! at "any time". This means even after you have rolled to wound with low AP weapons to recive his 2++. He is a tough nut to crack.
6t ed ork FAQ 1.0: Page 58 - Prophet of the Waaagh!, first paragraph
Change the second sentence to "Ghazghkull's Waaagh! can be summoned at any time, but only once per game, and not on the first game turn.

RP rolls work differently this edition, if the whole unit is wiped out, its wiped out. No RP rolls at all. This edition favors MSU heavily but Necrons can only operate in FLU. Once people start figuring that out Necrons are going to start feeling a lot less overpowered.

Just take flyers and laugh at him as you kite him around the board with mobile units. After you crush his army, tell him not to be a tard and take an uber-special character in a 1k game again.

This might be the most reliable way at any point game. Ghazghkull can't even touch fliers. I'd just be wary of Lootas at that point.

He could just retort and say to you, don't take 5 fliers in a 1k game.
