Default ORKS!!! 1500pts UK GT FINAL

Been such a while since I posted on here seems like the best place to start Is to post up the army I'm currently working on.
Only played two games with It so far coming away with two easy wins, doubt I'll play much before the final but I Imagine It could cause mucho damage against the right opponents.
As always comments and feedback welcome,

I fielded a similar army at CanCon, and didn't do so well. The trukk boyz are dispatched relatively easily, and the battlewagons can be popped with melta weapons.

Consider some lootas for firepower, and don't forget that the nobz can take a battlewagon as a dedicated transport.

Hey Longbeard :D

Quite a similar list to what a few of my lot are throwing around, can't quite pin it down to how it should be just yet .

Dunno if it was a copy + paste mistake but one of the units of boyz needs to be 18 to fit in the wagon with ghaz.

I fell in love with 3 x kans w/ Grotzookas after fighting against them at heat 1 this year as well, if you can wiggle them into the list somehow, possibly by losing a trukk unit? Then that would help in some medium range fire power department. Also with the extra points spare from trading in a trukk unit for 3 kans you can buy 3 x boarding planks on the wagons, which imo are essential means you don't have to bail Ghaz out to kill tanks till the very end if you're up against mech armies (such as similar wagon lists).

Just some thoughts, cya at the final!

Hey mate. Bawk!

I like your list, but feel like it could use some tweaking. The two trukk mobs and the boys mob with Thraka in the Battlewagon are fine. Trukk mobs are dead nice for getting stuck in turn one or two using thraka's uber waaagghhh and red paint jobs. The reinforced ram is also nice, although I prefer a wrecking ball for some anti tank distraction after unloading the boys. However, I would make some tweaks to ensure some overall good pwnage for the army.

A) Drop 2x battlewagon and the nobs, and field a squad of nobs on bikes and

B) Fill out that second squad of 19 to 30. You have plenty of units to tie up the enemy 1st and second turn with two trukk squads, a battlewagon squad, and a nob bike squad. They will cause significant panic and wtf among the enemy units until the 30 boys marching up the field can arrive and hold the objective.

C) I would do slugga boys instead of shoota in the wagon and trukks

D) maybe a deathrolla instead of reinforced ram on the battlewagon? Your choice

Other than that, I like it! Good concept

With these changes your army would look something like:

HQ
Ghazghkull Thraka: Ammo Runt (228pts)

Big Mek: Kustom Force Field (85pts)

TROOPS
12 x Ork Boyz: Sluggaz/Choppas, Nob: Power Klaw, Truck: Reinforced Ram (152pts)

12 x Ork Boyz: Sluggaz/Choppas, Nob: Power Klaw, Truck: Reinforced Ram (152pts)

18 x Ork Boyz: Shootas, Nob: Power Klaw, Boss Pole (123pts)

30x Ork Boys: Shoota's, 3x Big Shoota, Nob, Power klaw: 230pts


Battlewagon: 2 x Big Shootas, Armour Plates, Red Paint Job, Reinforced Ram (120pts)

Nob Bikes:
6x Nobs: 120pts
6x Bikes: 125pts
1x Painboy: 30pts
1x Grot Orderly: 5pts
Cybork Bodies: 30pts
1x Bosspole: 5pts
2x Big Choppa: 10pts
3x Power Claw: 75pts
Total: 400pts

Grand Total: 1461, with a few points left over to play with


Anyway, these are all just suggestions. Good luck!
