Orcs & Goblins in May!

Hey all, just got an e-mail from GW (I know, it was just for me and not the thousands of people on their mailing list, fuck you I'm special), looks like O&G are next up to get a new book.

Thank fucking Gork!

Here's what I'm looking forward to:
-Animosity scrapped or made less retarded (Ld test beforehand, units within range of the General/BSB ignore it, or make it like Beasts and have it random but beneficial)
-Orcs, Black Orcs, Savage Orcs, Board Boyz, and the like dropped in cost across the board. They're just too damn expensive at present and it sucks
-Black Orcs as Core if you field a Black Orc Boss (or Grimgor, whatevs)
-Some real skirmishers and/or Scouts. Squig Hoppers are funny and all, but Goblin scouts would be most useful.
-Better magic and items, seriously
-Make Trolls special

And, the big one:
Make more Orky stuff! Come on, bring on the funny stuff (but not random and stupid). Looted Steam Tank, giant battering ram powered by Squigs, Squig catapult, looted anything, souped up chariots, a flying contraption (or goblins with fake wings and/or Night Gobbies spinning around to make helicopter blades) that shoots green lazorz, and a giant robot.

Deff Rollicious

Hey-o, working on fixing up my list in light of the FAQ.

Warboss-powerklaw, cybork body, bosspole
Big Mek-kustom force field

Burnaz-12, 2 Meks

Nobs-7, 2 PKs, Painboy, Waagh! Banner, 2 kombi-skorhcas, bosspole, Battlewagon w/ big shoota, deff rolla, boardin' plank
Shootas-20, 2 big shootas, Nob w/ PK, bosspole
Shootas-20, 2 big shootas, Nob w/ PK, bosspole
Grots-10, runtherd

Fast Attack
Deff Kopta-tl rokkits, buzzsaw
Buggies-2 w/ tl rokkits
Buggies-2 w/ tl rokkits

Heavy Support
Battlewagon-big shoota, deff rolla, boardin' plank
Battlewagon-big shoota, deff rolla
Battlewagon-big shoota, deff rolla


Not maxing on Deff Rollas, but 4 is plenty, yes?

Boss goes with the Burnaz for Ld and PK power, Big Mek rides with the Nobs.

We've got 4 wagons rolling up to grind people's faces, 2 Loota squads to blast light armor, Buggies for mobile firepower/movement blocking/annoyance, an alpha strike Kopta, and Grotz for good measure.

Burnas are amusing to me, with the Warboss in tow they make up for their big issues (no bosspole, shit Ld, nothing above S4) and can either BBQ anything or carve things up.

Should be fun.

And hey, remember at all times that while this seems to be crazy good, remember that in order to get in kill range, I have to get my open-topped narrow-as-hell transport within 12", otherwise known as melta happy-land. KFF or no, a BWagon within 12" goes boom. It gets better when I have to waste a ram going after an empty Rhino or, even worse, a Speeder dodging and stopping me in my tracks.

The Deff Rolla working as Gork (or possibly Mork) intended doesn't catapult Orks into awesomeness, it just gives them a better chance against heavy armor. All the problems are still there, it's just giving us a little crutch to prop the Codex up until we can get something better.


Seems I was right all along, suck it unbelievers!

Time to finish up my 4th Battlewagon, list to follow.

I also take a perverse pleasure in seeing the INAT overturned, so much for amateur hour game design! I'll bet the IFAIL's Doom of Malantai ruling gets overturned too.

Holee Sheet

New advance orders from GW: Killa Kanz, Deff Dread, Venerable Dreads, Bassies and Chimeras.

Wow that Deff Dread is super fucking cool. Super pauldronz and gubbinz all over it!

BTW, I'm taking a break from Warhams due to school/work, so I'll be around but not posting much (lol, like I ever do) or playing.
