The Ork Boys idea is probably the most original thing I have seen in a video game in a while. It makes a lot of sense fluff-wise too. I just fear that the Ork ranks will be overwhelming at launch and then will thin down a lot after a few months

Thats the point, is for the Orks to have overwhelming ranks. Thats what they have in fluff, why not in game? Whenever people inevitably start buying the Eldar (which probably won't be that many people running about, but i've been wrong before), Chaos and regular space marines, the Orks advantage in numbers will still be there, it just won't be as one sided as it seemed at the start.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

I understand, but what about two or three years down the line, when the number of new players will be far less meaningful?

I think I may go Eldar, SMs and Orks will be the most popular but I think Eldar will be the least played and it would be cool to become an aspect warrior.

Assuming there actually is anyone still playing 2-3 years after launch.

Apparently The Space Marines will be Dark Angels and the Chaos Space Marines will be Iron Warriors.

While I think the Ork thing is interesting, I'm doubtful about it working. I really don't think people will enjoy being an Ork if all you do is charge and hope there are enough people to take down a Marine where if yo pay a small amount yo can be something else. It's neat in theory but in practice I have doubts that it will work.

Plus the idea is new players will be the Orks, but I don't think it will be that full since people WILL pay to be someone else, even new players.

Ok so planetside 2 mixed with Space marine, and your encouraged to grief? I admit it, im looking forward to this. Now here is hoping they can actually deliver. 40k really dosnt need a Aliens Colonial Marines scenario.

Some days i swear my dice are trying to get me killed.
Is it bad sportsmanship to cackle evilly during ones game?

This has my interest. Is the game planing on later on incorporating all the races in the 40K universe, or will it just be the few? As a table top Necon player that would be fun to play them.

I'd say they would add them, easy way to make money.
