Default 1000 list made to kill orks!

HQ
Junior Officer - Bolt Pistol and CCW
Lascannon
3 Lasguns
--Fire Support Squad - 3 Heavy Bolters 3 Lasguns
--Mortar Squad - 3 Mortars 3 Lasguns
Elite
9 Stormtroopers - 7 Hellguns - Flamer - Grenade Launcher
1 Stormtrooper Sarge - Hell pistol and CCW
--Mounted in Chimera - Multi-laser and Heavy Bolter
Troop
Platoon A
Command
Junior Officer with laspistol and CCW
Lascannon
3 Lasguns
Squad 1
Sarge with laspistol and CCW
Missle Launcher
8 Lasguns
Squad 2
Sarge with laspistol and CCW
Missle Launcher
8 Lasguns
Platoon B
Command
Junior Officer with laspistol and CCW
2 Grenade Launchers
3 Lasguns
Squad 1
Sarge with Laspistol and CCW
Grenade Launcher
8 Lasguns
Squad 2
Sarge with Laspistol and CCW
Grenade Launcher
8 Lasguns
Fast Attack
Hellhound
Sentinel - Multilaser
Total - 998

My plan for this army is for my command squads with the lascannons to take care of his battle wagon, and the missle launchers in the squads to take care of the trucks and dreadnaughts. The mortar squad will target wherever the ork player bunches a mass of orks and the heavy bolters will mow down rank and file orks. The Stormtroopers roll up a flank shooting 6 shots of death and the finally unloading all those nice hellguns that will actually negate a save. The grenade launcher platoon will set up probably in front of the bulk of his forces and move up firing hoping to move up into cover in the middle of the board and rapid fire the hell out of them, get assaulted, strike first and kill as many as possible. The hellhound will hit any fast moving units with the flame template and heavy bolter to mow them down and the multilaser sentinel will just provide fire support.

The autocannon is more effective than a lascannon on Armor value 10 and 11 since you get two shots.

You need more flamers and with the points saved get Vet sarges t knock out those pesky orks who reach your lines.

When fighting orks always play with the notion that they will reach your lines.

with orcs, though (unless dealing with looted vecheles), one finds low armor saves, which makes HB more cost effiecent

grenade launchers are as good as flamers in this case,Tatum, because the blast template is still there, but you can switch over to s6 krak grenades for a nob or buggy

But blast templates now have to be centered on a model so unless the the ork playr lines up his men for you then you are screwed with it.

Also I do not like mortars.

Not like mortars? When hes trying to hide his boys behind terrain I can bomb them with small blast, not allow saves, and have a chance at pinning? Yes please ;D

Charging sure... you've never played an opponent who has used terrain to screen his advance? I've only glimpsed his army and from what I saw it looks like a battlewagon and a couple trukks and then just a buncha foot slogging boys
