A smashing return for the Orks!

2000pts Orks vs Marines

Or, how to play with more bodies then your opponent has bullets.

I came up with what I consider a "wacky" list and I really wanted to play it. I got paired up first week in August against Jesse, who I've played plenty of times before with his green marines.

My list:

HQ: Mek, KFF, Cybork, Burna
HQ: Mek, SAG, Cybork, Bosspole, ammo runt.

Troop: Dread, 2xskorcha, armor, riggers
Troop: Dread, 2xbig shoota, armor, riggers
Troop: 30 sluggas, 3x rokkit, nob w/PK&BP
Troop: 30 sluggas, 3x rokkit, nob w/PK&BP
Troop: 30 shootas, 3x rokkit, nob w/PK&BP
Troop: 19 Grots + Runtherd

Elite: 15 lootas
Elite: 8 Lootas

Fast: 3x Buggies, TL Rokkits

Heavy: 3xKans rokkits
Heavy: 3xKannon, 3xammo runts
Heavy: 3xlobba, 3xammo runts

Count it: that's 18 S8 AP3 shots a turn, 6 of which are at BS3 and 3 more are twin-linked, on top of the 23-69 S7 AP4 shots. Who says Orks can't shoot???

It was a slaughter. I lost my lobbas, one dread, 18 shootas, half my grots, and about 10 other models total. He was left with an immobilized speeder, 4 marines, and a predator that was about to get ripped open by a Dread.

On top of that, I completely forgot I had buggies in the list and they never even made it out of the I played 100pts down.

I did learn a couple things. First, it's way to easy to bottleneck myself with a list like this. First thing I did was move my grot wall that got deployed in terrain..a 1 and a 3. Really put a damper on moving up other things. Second, trying to keep the walkers in effective positions and in range of the KFF isn't easy. Last, putting 8 lootas with the SAG mek was a stroke of brilliance, if I do say so myself. And I do :)

So next week I'll either be playing IG, Blood Angels or 'nids. I really want to play 'nids or BA, because I have yet to do either with my Orks.
