Very good, but imo combat patrols are number games so the more shots the better, the more orks, the better and so on. Speed is very key, but for a fragile army like orks you need numbers more than anything else.

You have small numbers, not good for an ork army. It can work, but bigger is usually better. You will probably learn more this way, though, because you will have to manuever, so there will be a lot more learning of the tactics.

Unfortunately if ^^ is true then this:


Big Mek + Shokk attack gun

Means you lose every game due to having an illegal list. D'oh!:suicide:
CP rules say no Ordinance. A ShAG is an ordnance weapon.:smoke:

Very many more boyz. Also, you won't see much for vehicles at all. Lootas will take them down easier and still mow down anything. And at 48" range!

The trukk is a bad idea in low points. It goes down, your whole army is footslogging. Instead, try to foot slog. Get a Big Mek with a KFF, alot more boys, and win.

It's a good list but i've played an ork thing a few weekends ago, and i played 83 boyz.they ran from building to building for cover, and on tau. 8 died by the time they assulted. Just think about that idea. But, the problem is that you can only have 1 HQ choice, and cannot have models with 2 wounds or higher

Thought I'd resurrect this, as I've not seen anything more recent.

Had a Combat Patrol Tourney at the local GW shop this w/e.

I'd love to see others list, but the main comments are.

Points are on UNITS.

The list above, gives them 5 possible points.

30 Boys, one big mek gives them none.

The list I prepped for my Son, (who came 2nd) had the same problem.

Lootas, TB's Nobs, PK's etc. 14 boys....

However, now knowing you initially score on the number of UNITS killed.

Don't give them the chance.

CB is Either 400 or 500 points.

You only have to take 1 troop choice.
You don't need to take an HQ (as some like CSM have no eligible HQ unit (less than 3 wounds)

no ord.
no armour adding to more than 33 (add front side rear)
nothing with more than 2 wounds.
nothing with 2+ saves.

So, for orks.

29 Boys. (180) Almost Essential, that's one unit that's very hard to kill (make sure you get the Charge though)
1 Nob PK as u/g to lead 45

(225)

Repeat

450

Tankbustas 75
Lootas 75

Leaving you 25 points over.

So reduce either one or both of the big units by a couple of boys until you're under your 500.

Which for me was 6 boys out of the 2nd wave unit.

495.

Comments, other combat patrol lists.

Do Necrons work in CB's?

(no termies/lightning claws to worry about) no 'lith though...
