I come to you suffering a bit from repetitive loss injury (RLI). I know that the Orks are a comedy race, and I do adore their comedy stylings, excellent models and daft background, but I’m finding that it is difficult for me to do well on the tabletop. I am starting to become a little tired of putting down a fair whack of boys, losing all of them, and having to rely totally upon powerklaws scattered throughout the units. Any army with lots of vehicles (which is basically most armies) present a very particular problem for me.
My typical list is something of the
Typically, the boyz mobs evaporate, the gretchin seem to survive more often than they should, and the fast attack units tend to fail to do damage at critical points. I’ve learned that bikes are not actually a melee unit, which has helped their usage. But very often I am relying very heavily upon things that aren't dependable and all too often let me down.
So, what should I be going for?
It's not as if I don't have the models because that's not the case, it's just seems to be the strategies that I use are at times very repetitive and I'm sure for my opponents simple to work out, namely deploying a lot of boys and move them as quickly as possible to the enemy. Only to have them shot to bits, over a couple of turns, at times it really is that simple. At tournaments I can hold my own although losing to the same old culprits like us all It seems that I have almost ran out of ideas. But then it makes winning all the more satisfying when I do.
So is it time for a new Codex?
I suppose the answer is yes and no, as I think the current book still has lots of potential so in many ways I think it's getting back to basics. Something that ork players shouldn't find too difficult.
So do you suffer from the same problem?
