Blue Ork Goff list

Planning on making an army to sell out of my new models.

I don't want to invest much more so I'm limited to what I have.

The main thing that is missing is Mek Gunz.  If I can get some printed I'll add them in later.

Right now I plan on added a Deffkilla Wartrike and then I have to convert up the HQ's out of Black Reach Nobz.

Anyway, the list:

Third edition stormboyz




Stay home orders have me looking for projects.  I've had these models sitting on the table for a while, after stripping. Plus I had a brand new set I bought about a year ago.

I had bought Kromlech punk heads but they are too big for the boys.  I did another old project, replacing the incorrect heads on my Kommandos with the proper gas mask heads and used the iron heads for these.

I only had 20 completed so I took 10 of the models and finished them up to get a full unit.  Now it's time to re-base the other 20.  They don't need any refurbishment just bases.

after going through the 20 they have a bunch of cool bases, including resin, I'll re-purpose for some of the crappy bases I have on my Grots.

I'll probably also replace the Nob's metal arms with plastic. That's something I frequently do.  It saves weight and makes the nob more stable... especially on 32mm bases. And maybe a punk head. 

I still need to finish painting the warkopta but not sure exactly how I'll attack it yet.

Bad Moonz repaints and re-basing



I finished the Shootaboyz tonight and man that got tedious near the end. I had to force myself to finish!  But after a shot of Dul-Cote I'm quite happy.

So I've now refurbished and re-based all my Lootas and 2 units of Shootaboyz.  I don't have any plans to re-paint anything else as a new Kulture and since I only play one I don't think it's much of an issue.  Of the models I have in my current list the Gorkanaut, the mek gunz and the planes have clan paint jobs that aren't Bad Moonz. 

The other lootas and shootaboyz are not klan specific.

On a side note these Boyz use to be slugga boyz but were converted to shootas in October 2012.

Final switch to Bad Moonz

After many games of Freebooterz under my belt I decided to try out essentially the same list as bad moonz.

The results are pretty telling. While the Freebooterz are actually better in Most - but not all - circumstances the Bad Moonz are just more consistent and reliable.

Where the Freebooterz trail starts to fail is against knight armies where you probably won't get a trigger and armies with big negative modifiers to hit. 

Also moving to Bad Moonz allows me to run lootas and use showin' off.  So that's 2 units that can fire twice in a turn with that, and one with Kustom Ammo.

Having lootas shoot twice, even 15 of them, under More Dakka is just unbelievable!

Combined with the Souped Up Shokka or the Gorkanaut fire twice it can be just overwhelming for an opponent.

I do run a unit of boys, but never, ever jump first turn!  The point of them is to attack late game after my opponent has been softened up by mass shooting.  They are great at grabbing objectives, shoot and assault soft objective holding units, and just provide a whole new layer of threat out of no where.

The only unit I am questioning is the 2nd SAG.  But there are not that many HQ choices to replace him with for the points.  Maybe a 2nd wierdboy?   We'll see what happens when Saga of the Beast hits.

Showcase: Evil Sunz warbikes w/GorkaMorka banners

after many many months I have finally finished this unit!

I absolutely love how they came out.  I plan on getting another unit someday, but for now these will replace one of the units I already have.

Not much else to say,  I would love to get the Evil Sunz back on the table but I need to re-base both units of boys to do so.  Maybe a package of 100 32mm bases is in my future.

Trying out some freebooterz lootas



I am going to try replacing a couple buggies with lootas in my freebootaz list.  I decided on the Shokkumps had to go.  This might move around after some playing.

Sure, Lootas are usually bad moons to use Showin' Off, but I want to see what happens when lootas hit on 4+

I would also like to try this exact list as Bad Moonz, just to see what happens.

One more revision to the Freebooterz list


As I was going back over my previous battles, I realized the one unit of boys really don't do a whole lot.  They purpose of them is to sit back and wait until the shooting has softened everything up.  But just one unit unsupported really doesn't do much.

But one thing I do need is more command points. That means another Battalion and 3 more troops choices.

That's 30 grots at 90pts.  Carefully going over my list the only things I could drop would be either half the boys or the traktor cannons.  I could possibly drop the biker boss but I do need to maintain 4 HQ choices.  Maybe someday I'll buy and 2nd SAG ~~

But enough blabber, here is the new list.

1998 pts, 104 PL, 14(-2) CP

I still have the small unit of boys to jump and assault, but now I also have more units of grots for both grot shield and jumping on to objectives (which was VERY effective late game).

But mainly losing a bit of CC power for a 50% jump in CP is a pretty good trade off IMO.
