Now first just let me say that I am a long time ork player that is a deathskull ever since I first started playing the green skins. I use to love my lootas even in the last codex when everyone else said there was something better to take my orks with sniper rifles were the best unit I had.
However this codex I just can't seem to get lootas to work for me. On average my lootas account for either one glanced vehicle or maybe one or two dead marines. I have tried them in small squads, large squads, and even two squads of 10 but so far they have only served to give my opponent easy kill points with little in return.
So I want to know from fellow green skins and people that play against orks. Do you think lootas are that great or not as much of a concern and leave them at home. Because for me they just aren't performing, I am getting better returns from my stormboyz and burna boyz in the way of kills and terror from my opponent then my lootas ever have.
They have one more game this saturday and then I am retiring all 30 of them or converting them to burna boyz unless someone can point our something I am doing wrong.
"Ahh, isn't Morfang sweet, like a great big 350-pound (that's 25 stone, UK users!) ball of cuddly death...?"
God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.
