More stable imo
Same here.

Modelling on the tail seemed too flimsy for the constant transporting.

Re: Getting back into 40k and the orks

The lack of Invunerable saves was a slight Nerf, but it still takes S10 to Instant Kill Bikes and S8 to anything else. My personal biggest gripe was the lack of the Boomgun on the Looted Wagon in White Dwarf. You now have to take big gunz to get heavy at range. Twin-Linked Rokkit Deffkoptas dropped ...

Re: 40k Conquest: New Card Game

This is already on my want list.

I've never been much into card games until I played FFGs Star Wars one. From there I was hooked. If this is anywhere near as good as the Star Wars game I'm sure I'll love it.

Re: Getting back into 40k and the orks

The new Codex is pretty much give and take.

But most importantly Orks are still lots of fun to play. :)

Re: forge world squiggoth contents.

Not sure what is the amount of Boyz you should get, but you do get some with the Squiggoth.

Re: Strategy is not my strong suit

While 'eavy armour seems nice it is still usually a waste of points, especially on big units. I rarely have more than a single Trukk boy mob of Ard Boy. Frees up points for LOTS of Boyz. Although I've never played against Sisters of Battle so I have no idea what they bring. I just try to get in fast...

Re: Ork Beginner (g/f's army)

Nobz always hit hard. Put them in a Battlewagon to get close. Deff Dread is fun to build & paint but difficult to use. Takes 2-3 turns just just to get close. Flash Gitz are one of my favourite model kits. Easy to mix & match with the Nobz kit too. They're decent shooters but can be a glass cannon a...

Re: Ork Beginner (g/f's army)

She could probably use an Elite unit. Nobz or Meganobz (plus Painboy) And she'll also need something to hit hard, maybe a unit of Lootas or some Big Gunz. Big gunz can easily be kit-bashed out of spares. Deffkoptas with rokkits are also worth the points now, look out for AOBR ones off eBay. Make sur...

Re: Imperial Knight?

Well, I did buy the Imperial Knight the weekend. Now for the Lore. I've been a role-playing Gamemaster for over 25 years, so making up my own story isn't a problem. But I'm not up on 40K lore and want to keep it as close to canon as possible. As I said before I want to use it with Orks & Space wolve...

Re: Am I missing something? SAG on Bike

I've converted a Space Marine Assault bike. I played it this week. It wasn't broken by a long shot, I only hit with a couple of attacks. But a fun unit to zoom around the table.

Re: Imperial Knight?

I've considered looted Knight, but my bits box is low and I don't think I could do it justice.

I do think I'm going to get an Imperial Knight though. :)

Re: Imperial Knight?

Already have a Stompa & Skullhamma. :)

I think I'm swaying towards the Knight because it can be used with my Orks and Space Wolves.

Imperial Knight?

I was just wondering if any Orks players use an allied Imperial Knight? Orkerd up or otherwise. I can finally afford to buy an Imperial Knight but now the new shine has gone off I'm not sure. I'm re-starting my Space Wolves so the Storm Fang is also calling. Right now I don't really need any extra O...

Re: New SW flyer.... Seems uber.

It does look like modern day landing craft.
Which gives a look of 40K retro. Intelligent design from GW IMO.

Re: New SW flyer.... Seems uber.

I've seen quite a few complaints about the look of the model. I don't know why, after all it pretty much keeps to the Space Marine styling. If GW realeased something all sleek looking they'd get complaints it didn't look like a Space Marine ship. No win. Personally I think it looks fine. As a troop ...
