Ork Rumours

Post  Lore Weaver on Thu Nov 01, 2012 10:34 am

From Faeit 212 via Stickmonkey (who sux):

First we can start with orks what i have heard is that they stay the same with furious charge and mob rules but all orks ( not grots or squigs)
will get FnP 6+ as a race because they are basically tough and it takes a lot to kill and stop an ork.

Most weapons will stay the same except choppas are ap6 but gain ap5 on charge and big choppers will be +2s and ap4 and ap3 on charge.

Nobz stay the same but are getting more characterful upgrades available to them, new kinds or grot assistants such as suicide grots(act alot like bomb squigs but prone to blowing up in unit) and
ammo runts and attack squigs also more weapon options like Big shootas and such.

new nob mega armour unit with teleporting abilities but its teleporting works differently from conventional deepstrike bit more random.
There is a special mek character that can bestow teleportation on D3 units.

special bloodaxe character with rules that can bring back boyz units once they are destroyed, much like an imperial guard special character.

A large multi wound squigoth type creature, not FW, it is ever hungry and uses a hunger points system. if it doesn't fulfill the hunger points in enemy's it will rampage nearest unit friend or
foe in order to eat.

Two new ork psychic lists for weirdboys, Mork more offencive and Gork more strategic. Many powers in the lists get more powerful the more orks are around the weirboy,
although the more powerful they are the more dangerous they are if they are miscast as they will often misdirect or hit the weirdboy and unit.

New ork only fortifications (including an ork rock) and an ork only warlord chart.

looks interesting, but im not too sure the idea of giving FnP to every ork-type model in a horde army is such a good one. that'll make people have an even harder time with green tide lists.

At 6+ it's not too ridiculous. It'll be ridiculous if a Painboy adds +2 to that result. 4+ FNP with the new FNP restrictions would be quite ridiculous.

I imagine we'll see two books a year. Maybe a few books really soon. Dark Angles, Tau, and Eldar should all be within the next year.

I imagine Orks will linger for a bit, as their current book has aged well.

its no different than the entire necron army standing back up on X number. no different than a res orb affecting unit members. in fact is less powerful.

as long as the orks actually pay points for it. heck, it might be the best thing ever if it ups the point cost, reducing the number of models on the table and shortening the time it takes to play a game.

well sort of. my issue with res protocals is that you cannot deny it in any way. at least with FNP you can double T most things to get rid of it. I prefered 5th when you could pw or ap 1/2 it away. did they faq if you used a weapon with ID that you still dont get FNP even if it doesnt your T. I remember reading something about it in the faq.

Balances out the 5+ verse the 4+ in fifth. Orks with fnp would be kinda cool.
