Default Ork Warboss!

Aah dear lord, was a good laugh, just played an ambush game against my mate, I lost.. horribly, got side tracked killing his orcs with my guard, and didn't move any one close to the escape table edge, but the post is about his warboss! dear lord! fire team with 2 auto cannons and a heay bolter, command squad with auto cannon and commander with a bolter, 3 squads of guards, 2 with grenade launchers, 1 with a flamer, 2 sentinals, and 4 chimeras! all shot at him, count them, that is an awful lot of shots. and do you know how many wounds I caused on the warboss? 0 not one, nada, nothing! The warboss did have mega armor and cybork body though...

I didn't know if I should laugh or cry.. on the plus side! I did win an assault against a unit of boyz with the plucky guard, that doesn't happen too often! did soften them up a bit first.. have to admit, but thats only sensible!

The Ork warboss is almost a monsterous creature who can easily outdo a Space Marine captain or Dark Eldar lord in combat without even much. (or any wargear)

It is one of few units I actally dread seeing on the battlefield; my normal tactic is to shoot the tar out of it. Its really funny that you didn't get one wound on him, lol.

But congrats killing some ork boys with your guardsmen. Thats always cool.

Good work on killing orks with your guard they arnt exactly known for their CC abillities. If the warboss was as you say in mega armour with a cybork body then its not to surprising you didnt kill it but not even inflicting one wound is quite insane.

Praise the sun!

I do know the feeling. I always say my guard need to go back to basic and re qualify on the rifle range. The worst is when you really want to kill and just cant make it. It takes me about half the game before I start to hit things I blame my dice gods for hating me so.it is always fun thou when stuff like that happens

I always enjoy tossing him on a warbike with a squad of biker nobz and a painboy (using cybork bodies for everyone). T6, 3W, with FNP 4+ Armor, 4+ Cover, 5+ Invulnerable ALL the time! Give him a power klaw and he takes down Everything! I love my Warbosses!

USMC, Oorah!
