You have a point, but I don't think either list would survive long enough to win an objective mission. The epidemus + heralds + nurgling combo might just work at 500 points though.

The Ork list won't survive the shooting phase against anything besides grots. As long as the opponents don't huddle everything in one spot, the Orks won't have a chance, even if they do manage to reach something in close combat before being shot to pieces.

Here's a Space Wolf list similar to neilbatte's Shike list, which I believe is even worse than his:

Logan Grimnar [275]

3 Wolf Guard [48] x2

Iron Priest w/3 servitors and 3 cyberwolves [125]

I love the idea of the Garbage Wars...but surely if you practiced with the list, you might have a chance of actually being effective with it? Hell, you might actually kill something; which is contrary to the spirit of the whole thing A better way to do it - purely IMO - would be to compile a list of all the Lists Of Crapness, then draw up who faces who..and then randomly assign lists to each player on the day. This would maximise the chance of utter incompetence and uselessness for all

The frustrating thing for Necron armies is that 460pt of the 500pts are mandatory and decided for you by the BRB, in terms of crappness from a player's point of view that ranks pretty high..

10 Gretchin, Runtherd - 40 points.

2 Big Gunz, Lobbas - 50 points.

2 Big Gunz, Lobbas - 50 points.

That's 500 points of attacks that will do nothing against most troops, whilst one good shot will take out a gretchin squad. Personally I think a tourney using bad lists would be immensly entertaining.

P.S can we submit more than one list because I can think of some truly godawful Chaos and Eldar lists.
