Default Can you make an ork army shooty?

Is it possible to make a good ork army that is shooty even though they've got a bad BS.

Definitely! What they lack in accuracy, they make it up by having loads of dakka. Surely you shoot something a hundred times, you're bound to hit it at least once! Shoota Boyz; 1 Nob with PK (You still need it for AT), 26 Boyz with Shoota and 3 Boyz with Big Shoota. Solid Ork Boy Mob build. Boomwagonz and Battlewagon with Killkannon ain't half bad as you don't need BS4 just to hit something. The Large Blast will help it hit something. Killa Kanz are great source of blast weapons as their Grotzookaz ain't half bad against infantry.

Don't forget lootas, basically orks with autocannons. Plus theyre squads can go up to ten and are pretty cheap!

Cool, thanks. I wasn't sure what to add to my AoBR ork army, as I like the idea of lots of dakka!

Blast weapons are great in Ork armies because they have a 1/3 chance of hitting dead on regardless of BS, and they can still hit even if they scatter. Other Orks units like Lootas and Shoota Boyz use rate-of-fire to do their job. If you don't mind taking some risks, Weirdboyz have two great shooting powers and the power to deep strike your dakka into a better shooting position, and Zogwort has one of the most entertaining powers in the game. When in doubt, use more dakka.

Here's a few Dakka lists from the Army List Board (including mine ^-^)

Lootas can go up to 15 (IIRC) Warpspiderman. That's up to 45 Str7 shots a round, for an average of 15 hits! That's alot of killin.

If you filled all 3 slots with Lootas thats up to 135 shots, with 45 expected hits.

Doubtful on being hacked but we're checking into the situation.

Now back to your regularly scheduled topic.
