If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

Orks, Got these second hand, Where to go from here?

Post by Merellin » Wed Dec 27, 2017 12:42 pm

So, I got a bunch of orks second hand some time back, And I realy like orks, But I have been putting off doing anything with what I have.. So I wanted to ask, Where to go from here? What to do with this?

What I have so far is
Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun on Bike
10 Stormboyz
Painboy
10 Burna Boyz
14 Nobz
15 Big Gun Orks (Not sure about these, One looks like a official Loota,2 looks like Big Shootas, And the rest have various largeish guns from assault cannons to shootas with Rokkits on the side.. Including one MultiMelta, One regular sized flamer And a storm bolter)
44 Slugga Choppa Boyz
2 Runtherds and 16 Gretchin
Ork Flyer
3 Warbosses
Weirdboy
6 Kommandos (5 metal, 1 plastic, That is larger and might be a custom Snikrot)
5 Flash Gitz
6 Killa Kans
Morkanaut

What you can do without purchases:
HQ wise you are fine. Run the Big Mek as a Keystone Force Field.
Add the Burnas to your Kommando squad.
15 big gun Orks sound like custom lootas. Right size for one full squad.
Turn one Nob into a Nob with Waaagh Banner.

Purchase wise:
You should round out your Ork Boys to be divisible by 30. So two squads of 30 is 60.

Max size squads are really powerful this edition as a general rule of thumb.

If you want more Walkers Deff dreads are an alright place to go. 3 will round out your heavy support options for walkers if you wanted to go Morkanaut and Killa Kans for a Dread Mob(Cool Nickname) type army.

I'd suggest getting some transports for your elite choices.

Trukks are good this edition since they last longer! Get a trukk for the burnas and you can even but a small group of boyz in one or the nobz.

A battlewagon is a great addition too! It can carry up to 20 models, so you can throw 18 boyz in one with a Warboss and Painboy! Or put your nobz in there instead of boyz while a 30 boy blob charges towards your opponent's army!

Yes you want Trukks!! Several at least, and a couple battlewagons prolly as well. Boyz just won't make it up the board without the Trukks (sometimes they don't make it up the board in the Trukk either but that's another thing). Anyway they're much faster in a trukk.
