Default Finally

I am taking part in my gaming clubs A Tale Of Four Gamers.

I have been given 50 to make my first purchases

Now...First choice: Army selection.

I have to say, the shiny new Dwarves looked REALLY tempting. I have played Dwarves before, so I have experiance in using them. This, to be frank, was the reason why I didn't. I wanted something new, and shiny, and something that played differently.

Then I considered a Beastman army....Like Paul Sawyer before, I was tempted by the big and 'ard model that we now call a Doombull. However, I then remembered the pain in the neck it would be to move that many skirmishing troops.

Then.....the Greenskin in me was stirred. The voice of Gork broke through the icy lampeter clouds, grabbed my by the throat and screamed "LISTEN BOY!!! YOUZ BORN A ORK!!! YOUZ GONNA DIE AN ORK!!!"

He then slapped me.

So....my decision was made. More greenies for TO's resident intrepid Ork commander. And not just ANY greenskins. I wanted da biggest. And da 'ardest.

Oh yes.

GRIMGORZ 'ARDBOYZ!!!! If it can be Big'uns, its gonna be Big'uns. So...all boyz get the upgrade to bigguns automatically. Which is to say I am always going to give it to them.

For my first 50, I decided that what any Propa Ork army needz is a solid infantry core, which I swiftly purchased. Three boxes of the little blighters, from an independant retailer, who only charged me 14:40 a box, and a commander (Rocky) converted from the Black Ork blisters. This costing me 48, leaving me 2 for next month....Now, I ask you, fellow players of Fantasy, what do you think my next purchase should be? Personally, I am looking at getting a unit of Boarboyz to give me some 'ard 'itten cavalry of DOOM. Opinions?

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

It wasnt a game store, a gaming club, not neccesairily the same thing.

With orcs, hmm, I've just gone and downloaded the Ard'boyz list of GW and taking a good look....
For anyone interested: http://stormofchaos.uk.games-worksho...oC_grimgor.pdf

Orc Boar boyz would give yousome faster troops (often essential with orc armies) with a consideerable amount of punch, however..

Some black orcs with quelling animosity abilities might be usefull with low Ld orcs, you wouldnt want what little you have to start bickering about whos choppa is shinier. BO are also now core unit (YEY - fav unit of Orcs army) .

If not Blackies, the perhaps boar boys and chariot, though have you considered effigy of gork, for only 40pts Gaming Wise and can be made for FREE from polystyrene, just make up something like the one forgeworld sells for 6, idea for more points and the larger your army becomes, the more potentially devestating it's effects.

To me, the spear chukka and rock lobba dont really belong (in this l'd have to go 100% orcish) and despite some boost in artillery support fire, with the units available, it wont be highly needed.

What materials are you using?

I would have thought that polystrene and a hot cutting tool would be the easiest option (watch the fumes though) although perhaps some balsa or weak wood yould also be good to use.

It's 6 from forgeworld, which normally i'd not bother making my own on, however when you factor in P&P too, make it, lol. I'm doing the same with some Tau turrets.

Wow, I also happen to be starting an ard'boys list. Although black orcs are expensive money-wise.....

I got all my stuff off an independant retailer, as I said....came to a lot cheaper. I got three boxes of Orc Boyz for less then 50 squids... 14:40 each.
