Default Orks have no night vision!!!

Was just putting together a 1000 pt list when I noticed that Orks can no longer take search lights...Kinda weird and distrubing...ever day games workshop makes me hate them a little bit more.

Wut da ya wanna be carryin a light around fer? Dey can't do any shootin, and dey certinly aint choppa. Best tah git sommat dat smashes teef in!!

Sorry... I have no idea why that happens sometimes, I must ge it looked at. Anyways - I think the reason as to why searchlights were removed was because no one really used them all that often - hell, even less so for orks. A close combat army has very little useage for seeing the enemy to shoot, and shoota boyz are more than likely to see the enemy due to the short range. Other than that - the shooty elements are a weakness in night fights then...

Just something we have to deal with.

I've not once had to deal with night fighting. We play standard missions and we roll for it, just never happens. So, I can't say I miss the lights, never had a use for them!

Huh. Maybe this means that they're going to get done away with in Fifth... ?

As with Thor, I've never had a need for them, though. I won't cry if they go the way of the Dodo.

The new Chaos and Dank Angels have searchlights as standard in their recent 'Dexz so I don't think Night Fight will be completeley gone in 5th Edition.
