Default Joining the Horde...

Heya,

On Friday afternoon I visited my local GW to buy some stuff with my Christmas money, talk to the staff etc... Anyway, they had the new Ork Codex out and the new models out on display and... They won me over instantly. The new codex is fantastic, the wealth of information is astounding! The humour of the Orks has been reinforced, I found myself laughing on multiple occasions when flicking through the Codex. The new models are fantastic, my favorites being the Warbikes and the Shokk Attack Gun totting Mek.

So I bought the Spearhead Box set which also came with the new Codex for free! And I spent my entire weekend building my new models and studying the Codex. I've made a list (which I'll post later!) which includes all the units in the Spearhead, and which sets me off with almost half of my 1000pts force already! I adore the new Codex, I adore the new models and I want to play Orks because I want to have fun whilst I'm gaming.

I hope I'm welcome here, and I'll "see you gitz on da' frontline." :P

Is the leaked codex the same as the new one?

That's awesome Anton, I'm glad you enjoy your orks. If I didn't already have so many orks I'd consider getting the spearhead. I am very happy with the new codex even though I don't have a copy yet, but I can't wait until they start selling it and smaller bunches of the new models.

I've never been so excited over an army before, the new rules are simply amazing! Me and my brother are already planning out many great battles between my Orks and his Dark Angels, and I can't bloody wait! I'll have my list posted up by tomorrow hopefully.

I haven't seen the 'leaked' version, but the one I have is fantastic, it's easily the best and most entertaining Codex I've read yet. The amount of effort they've put into the new Ork fluff is amazing, and I think that GW has done an ace job with the new Orks codex, and I hope to see them being played in many battles to come.

I have achieved my own hard copy of the codex too now, and I gotta say its quite nice. Good artwork, nice models, nice fluff, rather consistent, and well in tune with 4th ed.

I dont know if its balanced. Time will tell...

After reading the new codex the fluff alone tempts me to start collecting Orks, it's all very entertaining. The loss of choppas is a bit sad but overall the list looks much more competitive and a blast to play or fight against.

Welcome aboard, Anton. The Orks do have amusing fluff. Most of what is written in the Fluff department in the New Ork Codex has been written elsewhere already over the years. Pages 26 through 29 are new, however. The tale of Tuska the Daemon-Killa is almost worth the cost of the Codex in and of itself!

Best Regards,

It is the leaked 'dex. With more pages (mostley pics) added in. I have both leaked and real, and I too think it is the best 'dex yet. I want to make a Tuska Deamon-Killa model now! Wagghhhhh!
