The Waaagh! Website starter list grab

Post  deffdakka on Thu May 28, 2015 12:01 pm

I was browsing some links for information on how to start building my Ork army and I came across this at the-waaagh.com/projnew.htm (sorry, too new to add links according to rules).

It seems to be a fairly good list to start with, but I'm curious to see what other Ork players think could be tweaked. For example, I see no Gretchin forces at all, and I'm told they make decent objective holders.


The shopping list and army list below is "bare bones". This creates a nice Ork list that can be competitive for the true new player without drowning them in a thousand and one special rules or oddities. As the player becomes more familiar with their greenskins, some of the wargear and vehicle options will become available to them.
ITEM #1: Battleforce.
Includes 16 Boyz, 5 Bikes, 1 Buggy (Skorcha or KMB) & 1 Trukk.
ITEM #2: Space Ork Boyz box (x3).
Includes 48 Boyz.
ITEM #3: Ork Warboss Model.
ITEM #4: Nobz (x3) & Special Weapons Blisters.
Includes 3 Nobz, 2 Burnas, 2 Big Shootas & 2 Rokkitz.
ARMY LIST

HQ

Warboss with Big Shoota & Choppa (72pts)
Total: 72pts

TROOPS

21 Slugga Boyz (189) with Nob (11). 2 Burnas (12)
Total: 213pts

21 Slugga Boyz (189) with Nob (11). 2 Rokkitz (10)
Total: 210pts

20 Shoota Boyz (160). 2 Big Shootas (16)
Total: 176pts

FAST ATTACK

5 Bikeboyz (150)
Total: 150pts

1 Warbuggy with Skorcha (38)
Total: 38pts

10 Trukkboyz (90) with Nob (11). Trukk (30) armed with Big Shoota (Cool.
Total: 139pts

TOTAL: 998pts

Now this isn't the most competitive list out there, but the Ork player will enjoy some success with it against fair opponents. You would not take this to a tournament and expect to sweep the floor with everyone present. However, this is, in my opinion, a wonderful base for any Ork army. The player is armed with a decent core force of boyz (66) from which any larger army could be based.

More importantly, this is an affordable army. According to the GW online store, this comes out to: $313 Canadian or $247 US. Better still, this is a very easy army to put together and paint. There are no conversions and no large vehicles. All of the metals are quite well known for being very easy to put together.

I would recommend putting a few power claws (klaws?) in there, specifically on the warboss. without them you would have trouble vs 2+ armor units or tanks with high armor.

and if you want ork stuff really cheap, Ebay is your answer.

Yeah, I've found a decent chunk of the list already (Assault on Black Reach models mostly).

Still curious about the lack of grots, unless those are more just extras for a bigger, more specialized army.

That looks like the old Ork Battle force.

New Battle force + AoBR gives you

40 boyz
A truck
3 Warbikers
3 deffkoptas
7 Nobz
1 Warboss

I can't remember what Stormclaw has in it.


Past that my go to units would be
Battlewagons
Lootas
MegaNobz
Grots

Note that a non mega armored warboss on foot is about as ineffective a unit you can take. Not knocking it, but that's how my warboss got named Krippletrakks.
