Default Your favorite army to go up against

I was just curious...as a new ork player myself, I was wondering what army was "the most fun" to fight.

When I say "the most fun", I dont mean who can you steamroll most of the time, or how is most vulnerable to the strengths of the Orks..

What I mean is, which army gives you a good challenge, makes you sweat a little, but still gives you the freedom to "be orky" and win.

Kind of a "who is your biggest rival" question.

For Magic Johnson it was Larry Bird. For Mark McGuire it was Barry Bonds. For Peyton Manning it is Tom Brady. For the Orks it is ______.

Easy; Orks. There is nothing better than two warbosses clashing heads, and seeing who's army comes out on top.

Nothing's more fun to see 2 Big Mek with SAG trying to outshoot each other.

I always thought it was Space Marines for Orks. Not just because the beakie boyz know how to fight, but because their different colored helmets make very nice trophies.

That's probably a good reason fluff-wise but gamewise I'm going to agree with the former posters and say Orks. Both tooled up with the most random weapons and wargear they can get their hands on, not tournament lists, fun ones.

actually, because i play a very shooty list nowadays, i prefer to fight tyranids, as i don't have too much anti-tank stuff.
also, its fun to fight some thing that can be just as numerous, if not more so than you. I must admit though, orks vs. orks are always the funniest and craziest battles :funny:.

I enjoy playing anyone.

Any army can be great fun to play against. At the weekend I played a great 2500pt game against a mix and necrons, about 1100pts and the rest C:SM. It was great fun even with their luck on scatter.

I won though, 11-7 Kill points :P

I'm not sure what my favorite army to play against is. Ork vs Ork is always fun, no doubt about it, but I enjoy playing against the power armored Boyz too. I can say my least favorite army to play against is Tau.

New Nids is pretty uneasy to beat with their fancy gimmicks. Same as Imperial Guards, imagine your Boyz getting shot by Manticores.

Otherwise, Orks against anything else is so much fun, especially Daemons and Dark Eldars too.

actually, i really haven't had all that tough a time with new 'nids. tabled once, and won two of the three other games I played (beyond the tabling one), then tied the final one.

Edit: whoops, forgot one game in which i lost. damn tyrannofexes.
