It is a cool idea that for $165.00 you get 2 limited books. The Ork and the ghazgul supplement. Certainly makes it worth while. If I w an Ork player I'd pick it up.

For anyone pining the loss of kans, dreds, and bikes as troops, the FW Dred Mob list is still up and still legal.

With the leaked rules, a question keeps coming up for me. Are normal boys really only 10 in a unit?? Seams nerfish to me.

I'm thinking Rokkit Spam is going to be the new thing.

12 Tankbustas in a trukk w/Rokkit x3
5 Deffkoptaz w/TL Rokkitz x3
15 LOOTAZ x3
12 Boyz in a BW w/Killkannin and Rokkitz x3
Warboss
Mek on bike w/Kff x3

Add in whatever you've points left for. Just speculation, but this is what I'd bring as a base thought to a competitive format...if I even brought Orks.

The new Mob Rule seems to favor smaller units of Boyz.

Failed test from shooting:
10 or more + character = 2+ for d6 s4 hits, otherwise fails
under 10 + character = 2-3 for d6 s4 hits, otherwise fails

Failed test from close combat:
10 or more + character = always succeeds, d6 s4 hits on 2+
under 10 + character = succeeds on 1-3, d6 s4 hits on 2-3

In the first situation, 2-3 is the best option, equal to 4-6.
In the second situation, 2-3 is the best option, since both other options makes you flee.
In the third situation, 1 is the best option and re-rolling 2-3 would've always been worth trying.
In the fourth situation, 1 is the best option, but 2-3 is much better than 4-6 and wouldn't therefore be worth re-rolling.


You lose combat by two or three and you've got to roll a morale check? Before you got a very low probability roll (LD7 minus penalties) and if you didn't make it, you whacked one ork boy in order to... get a reroll on the same number (and probably blow it again, and get run down in a sweeping advance).

Now, you've got a chance of staying stuck in no matter what, and a 75% chance of taking a few wounds but staying stuck in after that. (Assuming you brought yer bosspole, right?)


I do like that buggies are super cheap now--you can get 5 big shoota ones for 125pts. Automatically twin-linked, and they're in the fast attack slot, which contains...not a heck of a whole lot worth considering.

You can also swap weapons free on buggies and Deffkoptaz.
