Default I'm back, angry (IG) and i got a question

Oi dere fellaw orkses!
After some time (couple of months) away I decided it is time to get back to the forums. As some of you might remember I came to the forums with an all powerfull force of 8 Orks and a Trukk. In the months that I was gone I gave my army some badly needed troops and a couple of weeners (Gretchin). The problem is now that my army is to much of combat and speed that can easily be blown away with some well placed blast markers... Now here is the question: What shooty army could I use, normally against IG (pesky pink things) and Space Marines and is also a good ally for my Orks in apocalypse games? or should I just add some Lootas and Wagons to my army?

As Orks, it will be a rare day you could outshoot IG (especially with the new Codex) and a shooty Marine list is just hard to outdo. I would recommend allying yourself with a shooty Chaos (Lash/Noise Marine Flavor), Tyrant (Big bugs with Big Guns) or Daemons (Tzeench/Soul Grinders).
As for your own shooting, I have rarely found my Lootas to not be a wise investment.

Best,

Thanks! I was thinking myself to take chaos and would Nurgle be good with Orks? I don't really like Slaanesh... and with Nids... would a Nidzilla army do? and for daemons... do you mean focus on Grinders or just a general Tzeentch army?

Nurgle unfortunately offers durability more than shooting, something which Orks don't really need in abundance...

Nidzilla-shooty army is actually perfect. They're plenty big enough to shoot over your troops and nasty enough to kill anything that your boyz don't take out.

Daemons have lots of shooty things. Tzeench flamers or horrors do nicely. Grinders as a whole are pretty awesome as well.


Best,

Okay... and looking at the cost? What would be a good beggining with $200,- ?
