Orks are known for their ferocity and flexibility and with their faction rules being previewed this last week they are more than ready to unleash their destructive power in the new edition of Warhammer 40,000.
The Orks are literally spoilt for choice with a huge variety of options!
We’re talking hordes of Boyz, a virtual menagerie of fast-moving and ram-schackle vehicles, or rag tag clumps of massive hulking war machines - the Orks offer a versatile and varied play-style that can be bent to suit any warboss's tastes.
Like a tide of green flowing across the table top - the faction's new Army Rule - Waaagh! allows them to Charge and Advance in the same turn, ensuring they get stuck right into the heart of the fight. This is utterly ridiculous and should be sanctioned immediately by the inquisition… but seriously the Waaagh will be at the heart of how the Orcs will be played.
And Then - with increased Strength and Attacks in melee combat, the Orks get the opportunity to deal devastating blows, and their invulnerable save keeps them resilient even in the face of counter attacks.
And Then - the Waaagh! Tribe Detachment rule Get Stuck In… further enhances their melee prowess, granting additional hits on Hit rolls of 6. This is particularly effective with large mobs of Boyz or heavily armed units like the Hunta Rig.
And Then - more dice means more chances for those extra hits, increasing their combat effectiveness.Among the standout units are the Beast Snagga Boyz, formidable and versatile troops that excel at taking objectives and bringing down tough targets such as Monsters and Vehicles.
When it comes to leadership, there's no one better than Ghazghkull Thraka, accompanied by his loyal bodyguard of Meganobz. Armed with Gork's Klaw, Ghazghkull can tear through even the toughest adversaries.
Ork weaponry offers a wide range of options, from shootas and sluggas to skorchas and snazzguns.
The Stompa, a massive walker armed with powerful guns and advanced melee weapons, epitomizes Ork engineering and is capable of wiping out entire squads.
On the other hand, the Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy's squig launchas may lack explosive power, but their unpredictable nature and ability to rain down on enemies from unexpected angles make them a potent threat.
Orks possess various Stratagems that reflect their unique style of warfare. "Orks Is Never Beaten" allows them to return to the fight even after defeat, while "Ere We Go" boosts the speed and threat range of their infantry, enabling them to get into the fight faster and strike harder.
The Orks are a force to be reckoned with in Warhammer 40,000. Their ability to get up close and personal, coupled with their resilience and diverse range of units and weaponry, make them a formidable faction.
Whether you prefer overwhelming numbers, speedy vehicles, or colossal war machines, the Orks offer a thrilling and destructive playstyle that will bring joy to any Warboss. Get ready to unleash the green tide and wreak havoc across the battlefield
