But yeah planetstrike looks like loads of fun.

I keep forgetting how hilarious my old posts are.

It's not a question of who will let me, it's a question of who will stop me.

You're telling me! 48 Strategems, most of which are at least okay, some of them being actually very nice indeed. Of course, you hate Orks, so the 'Unstoppable Waaagh!' won't please you...'Blasphemous Broadcast' (the CSM Strat) isn't that great in of itself, but makes for some very nice comboes...

ageis defence lines with defending orks! "rite lads, wes goin' ta stand behin' dis wall, and whens dey get close... Waaaggghhhh!"
serriously, you get a 4+ cover save from them, 2+ if you go to ground, 1+ if you have that special rule that is +1 to your cover save. add in some dreads, a SAG and lootas, and orks will be unmoveable.
add in the quad autocannons that can go into "overwatch" and shoot at the end of your opponents move phase and the lascannon that can shoot down Deep Strikers (i think anyway) who needs to be the attacker?

mind you, you do get to drop space ships on the enemy if you are the attacker. and the laserburn is very nice. and stormboys DS into the heart of the enemys force without old zaggy...

humm, true. This is yet again proof the Orks are smarter the Elves.-Micklez

Plus Nob Bikes with the good old Sustained Assualt strategem...

Plus, I can't wait to unleash a Stasis Bomb...or a Planetquake Bomb, or, better yest...a Meteor Strike...

The Necron-only strat though - 'Euclidean Mindphase' - seems like an afterthought...it's dreadful...

Interestingly, the PS book also lists Kantor's Last Hope, about which I have heard no rumours, perhaps because its content would be well over two thousand pounds...

Oh, one more point: With IG, it's possible to get a -5 to the opponent's Reserve rolls. As the attacker. With an ability to make them re-roll any 6's they get in one turn. Oh, and to DS a squadron of Demolishers in the enemy's face. With a re-roll on Scatter.
