Default Question on "Codex Orks" ?

Hi folks

As a relatively new 40k player I just got hold of some older codexes as a trade. I play Tau, and have no intentions of starting another army just yet, but figured it would be good to "know your enemy".

I have started looking trough the Codex:Orks book (which is a very good and fun read, I can see why people are attracted to playing with the boyz ), but there is one thing I can't seem to find.

Where are the stats for the "standard" weapons like the "Slugga" and "Shoota"? I can't seem to find them in the "Wargear" list (the "Choppa" is there though).

Also I'm guessing that the ork codex was released before the 4th edition rulebook, maybe the stats were in the 3rd ed rules?

Any answers to this (and please put in the page-number if I'm just missing it in the book) would be appreciated.

Rune

Go here: http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4.../refsheets.htm and it's the Ork Summary link.

It's actually not in the codex at all.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply and the link.

Out of curiosity, do you know if those stats were in the 3rd edition rules, or were they left out of the codex by mistake?

I'm not sure on this but, I belive that Codex:Orks is accually from 2nd edition...
But I belive they were in the rule book. It would be pretty sad if GW forgot the stats for a races arms...

Ok here it is the final word: There are two 3rd editionork codex floating around; 1 has the weapon summary on the very last page and one does not.

Ok, seems I have the version with the missing stats then, but I'll do fine now with the link from Thor{DoH}.

Thanks again for all your answers.

It's from 3rd edition. I'd prefer the stat lines from 2nd though. ;D
