Speed Freeks Grot Tanks

For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to model Grot tanks for Speed Freeks, little tanks just wouldn't look right then whammo!   Armored Cars.   Duh.

Ork Warbands-Scratch the itch of the themed army

My core Ork Army is Evil Sunz, I like lots of mek and vehicle action. But I also want a variety of modeling opportunities. I've been trying to find a way to shoehorn in other clanz without having a whole bunch of redundant models. The idea I've been going with so far is that any other clanz could just be warbands, specific units that would just be thematically the same, but just taken as normal Org choices. A couple of examples I'm gearing up for are Snakebites (Fantasy Boyz and Squiggoths) and Blood Axes (Russian Tanks and Grot Tanks and Artillery). I've also had a hankerin to do some Tau-Looted ork models, like a band that has been scrappin with the Farsight Enclave for a while and picked up some tech. My current idea is to do a Wazdakka gang with grav bikers.   How about you? Are you mono-clan or ADD?

Scratch Built Ork Knight Titans

Av you been feelin a bit out Dakka'd by dem puny 'oomies? You's wanna stomp akross da field mixin it up like da Boss? Well you musta been dipped in blu paint cuz today's yer lucky day! Ere at NUTSTRIPPA'S USED KRUMPATORIUM!! we's havin a sale!   When the Knight Titan was just a rumor I knew I wanted one, when I heard they're 8 inches tall I knew I needed one, when I read they couls ally with Orks I knew I'd die without one. OK, so only one of those things turned out to be true but it didn't matter because I was too busy hammerin and choppin in da workshop to care. So I did the only logical thing, if I can't legally add one to my Ork force I'd simply make enough to do a counts-as army! First in the shop is, KRUMPUS DA MAGNIFIKU...DA MAGSIFACA...DA REELY HOOGE

Deffkoptas, why do I hate thee?

I love the idea of deffkoptas, boyz on jetbikes, zipping around here and there causing grief and killing crap. I even like the stock model from the last boxed set. But I hate the way they play.   At first they looked great. For 35 pts I get twin linked Rockets on a fast platform, that Isn't a slouch in Melee. Add a Buzzsaw for some powerfist action and whammo!   But the weak link is LD 7. Literally everytime I used use them the run right off the board. They run to far and rally too poorly to be anything but a pts sink.   For the same price I can get buggies. Just as fragile, but no leadership issues.   So how wrong am I? Wow me.

Community Waaagh!

I think it's time for a dedicated resource for all us <s>Ordo</s> Orko Players. The intent here is to provide ourselves resources and community to prove that Orks are the best choice for the game! If you are interested in contributing just send me a PM.   I plan on cross posting from the Fanboy Forge, plus more gaming related articles. Hopefully we can all share and support each other proving that a choppa to the face is way more effective that some fancy know-wot shooty bits any day.
