Your giving up because you lost a squad by squad match when from the looks of it you don't know all the rules.

Instead of assuming because you lost one incomplete thing that Orks are just then give up now. I will save you wasting alot of money.

Orks require numbers, regarding the shooting, their shooting can be deadly. So what their BS is low, so are Guard. But at the end of the day through the law of averages some will hit. So it balances out, plus you aren't at that much of a disadvantage in overwatch. Hell it's probably an advantage.

Plus their codex is old so suffer in comparison to Necrons in that regard, but the should be getting a codex next year so will be balanced out and that will bring various improvements.

I am not giving up, but I was a little discouraged. Reading these comments made me feel like I am making the right choice by continuing to build my army. I knew that there squad v squad wouldn't be the most accurate, but it just felt like I had been DESTROYED and not close by any measure. I'm going to throw together an army list and see what you all say and continue my collection. Thanks for all the comments, It's nice to get reassurance.

Just stick with it. Honestly it's better to stick with an army you enjoy for whatever reason - models, fluff, playstyle - even if it's losing and just get better than jump to a new one. So just stick at it.

Going just squad to squad or any really small points game also really needs a smaller board to play on. No surprise the shooting army came out on top there.

Wife: "How much do you have invested in these ... miniatures?"

Me: "I don't think invested is the right word."

This is good advice. You'll learn how to win over time, but you can't learn how to like an army. Stick with the orkz, paint everything red, convert stuff by covering it in the contents of your bits box and enjoy your greenskins
