Hey, i need some help here.

I am buying my brother a birthday present, some stuff for his ork army, but I don't know shit about ork strategy beyond "Waaagh! Fear us and our massively large axes" and as such, am not sure what to buy him.

I have about $45 to spend, I can't go any higher.

I was just wondering if any serious ork players knew enough about this stuff to recommend something to me. He's just starting out, and as such just has a few mobs of shoota boyz and an extremely cheesy warboss. (He got a little carried away with the wargear.)

Thanks in advance.

Cool. The boyz were my first thought, but since he has no vehicles, I was really trying to see if I could get him one of those. This, again, is a question of strategy, because just because I can get three warbikes for $45, should I? What would substantially add to his force, and help him kick ass? The only army he really plays is my IG, since he's too young to do any tournaments or anything like that. I dunno if that helps you out.

Yeah... More boyz is always good, otherwise maybe a Trukk or two. Since he'd probably appreciate something new more, I'd say go for a trukk.

Three warbikes its not enough, they will get shot to bits.
They would cost about £18 here so I will stick to around that figure.

Tok about got it with a truck, great to deliver your Boyz or Warboss to the action.You could probaly get himm a Burna, Big Shoota or Rokkits for his mobs on top.
More Boyz is good as has been said you can never have enough.

But if its big and shiny you want you could get a Chimera to loot and make a spare Orky turret and fuel tanks to use it as a Hellhound, two tanks for the price of one!! (Its great for orks as you get the two chance to hit thing with its templete and can be real fun to make and play).

If you want to know more about converting one up you can PM me and/or look in the Gallery as mines in there (about page 1 or 2).

I was just using the warbikes as an example, I didn't actually know if they were a viable option or not.

I think what I'll do is get him some boyz and a trukk. That seems to be the overwhelming opinion. Thanks guys.

A Trukk is an excellent idea if he does not have one. A lot depends on what style of Ork's he's playing. A Killa Kan can be worthless to one Warboss and important strategy piece to another, so, as has been said, more Boyz are always useful, since nearly every type of ork unit is just a modified Boyz Boxed set.

Don't forget to buy from Chaosorc.com... buying a box of boyz and a Trukk from games Workshop would be $60.00 total, on chaosorc it's exactly $45 (plus a few for shipping).

How many boyz does he have though? If he already has a good amount (say, 30 or more), then you could get him two Trukks and a Nob for $44.

And if I'm not allowed to advertise other sites for some reason, I'm sorry, I'll edit this post.

He has one box, minus one cause it got stepped on. (playing on the floor is not a good idea btw)

He's a new player, so I'm trying to break him little by little. I'm obviously not going to drop all 1500 points of guard onto him at once, but it would be nice to be able to attack him w/ more than just a single platoon, hence the aforementioned present.

I'll check the site out, thanks.

Gork or Mork must have been angry or Summink!
(There was a spell that did this many moons ago :lol: )

Let us know how he is doing agaisnt you, I too have a Newb younger brother to train so it will be interesting to see what training techniques you come up with.

PS. Fantasy Orks make great boyz when you use the leftover arms from your first 40k box and you get more and a Nob in the box.
