    30 per day has to go up right?

    At this current rate it would take 150+ days, plus weekends and prolly more for the chinese new years stuff in february for them to get to my backer number :/

    Ive not been keeping up, how come there will be no deliveries before xmas?

    [–] Are killa kans worth taking? wurrkop 4 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in orks

    Back in the day they used to be good for marching up together with da boyz, just in front of a KFF big mek and krumping stuff when they got into close combat, since they lost so much effectiveness in CC and still being very lackluster at shooting despite of the buff sorta killed em off.

    They really havnt been the same since they went from ork crew to grot crew (ws4 to ws2 and bs2 to bs3) in the 3rd to 4th edition codex and again when they took another pretty big hit from morale starting affecting them.

    Ive got 12 killa kans from back then and i dont feel like bringing them out, especially since that would be a huge chunk of my army that gets no clan benefits.

    [–] Can you Loot your own transport? wurrkop 2 points ago in orks

    The thing is that the transport is destroyed before they disembark, to use the stratagem they have to be on the table when its destroyed, not when its removed from the table.

    [–] Bad moonz or Deffskulls wurrkop 6 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in orks

    I think the last time Nazdreg was seen was with offical rules was in the 3rd edition codex, that was in '99.

    His model was not shown in that codex though because it never got the Gorkamorka/Brian Nelson/current-look update.

    The current Ghazghkull model wasnt even out back then, he didnt get released untils the 3rd Battle for Armageddon campaign in the summer of 00.

    Nazdregs specialty that he carried what was basically an assault/blast plasma cannon (one of very few ranged ork weapons with good AP) that would hit on 3+ (when everything else hit on 5+) and that he could bring extra heavy support at the expense of less specialized boyz units in the age of set force organization charts.

    [–] 'new' unit I'd want: Shooty Kommandos or Assassin Nobs wurrkop 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in orks

    I highly doubt we will ever move towards boxes with more options again, GW dont want options anymore, the height for that was maybe 5th edition.

    The options in the future will mainly be different boxes, thats why we got (HOW MANY?!) different buggies instead of one kit that could make two or three different variations and combined that with the original war/trakk/buggy codex entry, did orks really need five buggies?

    Let say they had used two of those five sprues for the buggy kit, then they could have made:

    a sprue with an extra set of body/legs for a boy or nob and weapon options and detailing to make kommandos/tankbustas, put that together with the 4-boyz-per-sprue-sprues and sold that as a kombikit, like the lootas/burnas kit.

    Meaning getting those monopose finecast kits out of the regular inventory to be sold sometimes through the webstore, like they do with other finecast stuff with newer alternatives.

    Thats three sprues

    They could have recut the AOBR deffkopta into a squad sprue with three of them and weapon options so they could have retired the finecast deffkopta to the sometimes category and let people stop hunting for 2nd hand AOBR deffkoptas.

    Four sprues.

    Then they could have made two halfsize sprues to bulk out the plastic warboss/grukk kit with more weapon options so they wouldnt have needed to cut Grukks character to make space for the codex entry of "generic warboss" and a sprue for the shokk attack mek with a kff and some other weapon options.

    Pretty much five sprues.

    Then they could have gone for gold and made clan upgrade sprues, like marines have for different chapters and the genestealer cults have for combining with imperial guard kits.

    [–] OI! GITZ! DIS GROT NEEDS PAINTN TIPS! wurrkop 2 points ago in orks

    I agree, the boyz that wore me out were painted back in the early '00s, a time when priming black was still the norm for anything that wasnt super bright, the fact that i give it as an example a decade and a half later should tell everyone how much painting over black sucks :P

    [–] OI! GITZ! DIS GROT NEEDS PAINTN TIPS! wurrkop 7 points ago in orks

    I used to do black primer but really wore myself out when i painted my first 80 boyz because all of the layers it required.

    My last mob of Shoota Boyz and unit of grots were done like THIS which i find to be a good balance between ease, time spent and good looks.

    Here are the mentioned Grots.

    When you use regular colors (as opposed to washes) i highly recommend a wet palette because it keeps your paint thinned, make one by putting a bit of parchment/baking paper on top of a moist bit of cloth inside of a container that you can close airtight, like a shallow lunch box or something.

    [–] Boyz: Slugga/Choppas or Shootas? Which is best? wurrkop 26 points ago in orks

    Shootas iz betta at Shootin', Choppas iz betta at Choppin'.

    [–] Is anyone else having trouble luring is arm on? I've to look online, but I couldn't find anything. wurrkop 0 points ago in orks

    Havnt built that one but from the looks of it there is only one way it fits?

    If all of the sprue attachment points are cleaned off nicely it should pretty much just slot it, does it dry fit alright?

    [–] Big mek with KFF gone? wurrkop 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in orks

    They dont sell the model anymore so its not in the codex and likely to be fully removed when the index gets deprecated, until that happens you can take one out of the index xenos. Costs a big choppa less than the Shock Attack Big Mek.

    [–] Fluff help wurrkop 4 points ago in orks

    Found a quote from the book Waaargh The Orks! that came out in 1990:

    There is no predilection for Chaos among the Orks; indeed, Orks are much less likely to turn to Chaos than Humans or other races. This is due to the fact that the Ork race is relatively stable and content. There is little psychic stress or angst among the Orks, which leaves virtually no avenue through which Chaos can invade their minds.

    Every Ork knows vaguely that when he finally falls upon some stricken field (the majority of Orks meet their end in battle), his soul will merge with the mighty Ork war gods in the warp. ... He has nothing to fear from from the ravenous soul eating gods that other races grovel to in terror. The Ork gods will protect him. Orks happily accept this destiny.

    [–] Fluff help wurrkop 3 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in orks

    There isnt much chaos/ork fluff around, i know there were Khorne Stormboyz back in the early nineties but other than that i dont think there has been any official crossings of chaos/orks and i think it has been said that Orks are naturally resistant to chaos influence since then.

    Here is a bols article on Khorne Stormboyz: http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2018/06/40k-retro-khornes-stormboyz-killin-it-old-school.html

    You can of course say your orks work with the chaos forces on an ally/hired/freebooter basis, thats fine as long as the orks are getting what they want or you can fluff your own Waaagh to be one that has turned.

    [–] Kit bashed deffrolla? wurrkop 2 points ago in orks

    PET as in polyethylene terephthalate. the regular plastic bottles with screw tops.

    [–] Kit bashed deffrolla? wurrkop 6 points ago in orks

    That would be me, here it is again: https://i.imgur.com/6P0gfUS.jpg Two PET bottle caps rolled in a layer of card board, capped with round cardboard "lids" on the ends, then more cardboard for plates and acrylic 1mm rhinestones picked up with the point of a hobby knife, dipped in super glue and placed on the rolla for the rivets, pretty easy and almost free, Rhinestones cost a buck for hundreds of them and are useful for pretty much all ork stuff because you can never have too many rivitz. BBQ skewers for the axles.

    [–] Fun with Teleporta's wurrkop 1 points ago in orks

    Picking Big Shootas might actually be the better option for drop and charge killa kanz, guaranteed 3 shots, no penalty to hit since the Shoota is assault as opposed to the 'zooka being heavy, S5 instead of S6 but 5pts per kan cheaper as well.

    [–] How big is the Warboss on Wartrike? wurrkop 2 points ago in orks

    Id be interested to know this as well, anyone with the model care to take a scale comparison pic next to Grukk or perhaps the AOBR boss?

    [–] Getting Started wurrkop 2 points ago in orks

    Check ebay for job lots or assault on black reach sprues, the per boy cost can be very low.

    [–] Where to find Battlewagon deff rolla upgrade kit? wurrkop 13 points ago in orks

    Dont have a lead on one for you but they are pretty easy to make.

    Here are two ive made: https://i.imgur.com/6P0gfUS.jpg Two PET bottle caps dressed up with cereal box cardboard to make an even surface all the way around, more cereal box as plates for a nicer look and then "riveted" with 1mm rhinestones (brilliant for rivits, 100s for a buck) picked up with the point of a hobby knife, dipped in super glue and placed on the rolla.

    The arms on the blue one are mainly sentinel legs that i got in a trade a long time back, the axles going through the rolla and the body of the wagon are wooden bbq skewer that have been cut to length.

    The unpainted on needs a bit more detailing on the arms but i included it to show the "bare" rolla.

    [–] They took our words away! wurrkop 7 points ago in orks

    Maybe the full list took up to much space? There are glyphs from all the way back in the 2nd ed codex that i can remember, maybe even earlier.

    [–] So about the Mega armor boss and plan big Mek? wurrkop 1 points ago in orks

    Seems like they are trying to get away from resin stuff as much as possible, if a range is "playable" without the resin bits they are getting cut.

    With the resin stuff they very likely have master models put away for safe keeping and could get new molds made at a moments notice, if they wanted to.

    With the new way of actually putting datasheets in boxes or chapter approved books they could get put out new stuff between codex revisions but i dont think its very likely.

    Yes, but not to put on the same character, each can only have one relic.
