Default Ork Boyz Sprue

I stumbled upon this just a bit ago. I see a big shoota in there, a rokkit launcha, an arm with a tankbusta bomb, and a tankbusta bomb bit. Looks like plenty of goodies on there so we can finally flesh out our units without having to buy blisters for special weapons.

Currently they are assault 1 weapons. I imagine they'll stay that way in the new codex.

Well, this seems to be the proof that, from now on, Boy boxes will contain just 10 of "da Ladz"...

Nice find, though! Looks great!

Well found, Thor! I spy plenty of shiny gubbinz in there... and plastic 'eavy weapons! *fires Slugga in celebration* I'm glad that they kept the basic design of the current Boyz, and it looks like cutting the trigger off the Shoota and gluing it onto the gun hand is no longer neccessary. Which is a pity since I save up all the triggers for conversions. Ah well. I'm sure I'll find a way around it.

Now let's hope that these come in a box of 20 instead of 10...

Indeed, I noticed that earlier. Although it seems someone has already gotten to work with this sprue, a few bits are missing. ;D

These will work nicely for mutants in my LaTD contingent.

Well, if all that's ina box is one sprue anyhow.

I can't believe Games workshop would do that - why would you make a box for a horde army, re-write the book so they are definately a horde army, and release them in an expensive box with very few ladz?

If GW does this it's going to be putting something nasty into something else!

A friend of mine, a fellow Ork player, showed me this. On the sprue I posted there are some missing bits. Those missing bits are for making a Nob with a PK. Here's a shot of that Nob, on the left.
