I'm really not to sure what else to expect. I think that while some armies are getting a lot more stuff then we are, it doesn't really matter. Think about it: how many troop boxes do we (Orks) have? One. The ever-versatile Boyz box. Pretty much every troop (and most of the elites) are converted from that one box. So while IG get and the Beakies get boxes with a tons of crap, we don't really need that. All we'd really need is a box of boxes of Boyz, which I guess we can still hope for.

Ahem. This has been said at LEAST once and will be repeated fewer and fewer times.

What we know:
Apocalypse is just starting.
The Ork dex needs an update.
Marines and IG are 2 very stable armies as of right now.
Marines are the posterchild of GW

Therefore, it is smart to assume the following:
Marines and IG will get the premier stuff.
Based on sales other armies may get stuff.
The Ork Dex is being updated and will come out soon enough.

Please do NOT keep making topics like this. In fact, locking this would probably be a good idea.

It's rather simple really - we are getting a New codex and an almost brand spanking new range of minis!!

Now - what would you rather prefer:

A) - A few new models (bearing in mind GW is spreading it's bets over all the armies) that you might not be able to use half the time.

B) - A bucket load of new toys, a new codex, new models and a generally revamped freshness to your army?

I think the answer is obvious.

And don't forget - we may get the stompa as well

The purported new Ork Stompa model is a persistant rumor out there. The GW blokes I've talked say that its a fact. Many Orks players have looked at the models that are used for the Orks in the Apocalypse photos and declared that the models look to scratch built to be made from a kit.

In the case of Orks, wouldn't that be the point?

Stay tuned. I think that Orks just may come out on the top end of things.

Best Regards,

I just hope that we get a new battleforce box since the one we have is geared towards KOS...if we got that all would be tastey for me.

It occurred to while at work today that one of the big reasons we're probably getting so little stuff with Apocalypse is because (Emperor Willing) most of the model range is getting redone! It's been rumored for years that the bikes are getting completely redone soon and there have been other rumors of us getting a modular vehicle kit (that has me tickled green!(Ha ha, Orks are green! Get it? ) so it would be quite useless to throw some soon to be outdated models in a big box and try and sell'em.

This can actually be taken as a sign that the Dred and Kan models aren't going to be changing at all. Hopefully it's also a sign that the Boyz box is getting redone with the 'Dex update and maybe we'll be seeing a Apocalypse box coming out around the time that the new Ork stuff does (although I'm sure some of you remember the leaked release schedule...) or possibly when the second 'edition' of Apocalypse comes out, assuming it doesn't flop.

My thoughts,

-Grandpa Ducky

According to my sources and the GW release sheet that was sent to me, the new orks are coming out in January. And Yes, there will be new boyz and new bikes. I don't see a modular vehicle kit, but I only have up until January.

GD is right about the Dread and Clan models, no sign on the sheet that they are going to be released.

There is a speed freaks boxed set on there too, that is going to be good for whoever plays speed freaks.

Hope that helps.

As a note, I'd like to say that I think that Orks are really going to shine during Apacolypse. Here's why. #1, no more FOC to limit Battlewagons or Looted Vehicles. #2, vehicles will rule Apacolypse. That means that our cheap trukks and buggys will be more durable than Wraithlords with the new Str D weapons rules. #3, we're getting a vehicle specific special rule - the Dread Bash or whatever it's called. I don't know what it does...but remember that vehicles will be key.
