Warhammer Community Sneak Peaks

Speed Freeks is a high-Orktane racing game set in the desert expanses of Vigilus, pitting Orkish bikes and buggies against one another in brutal, unpredictable death races. As well as containing the Shokkjump Dragsta and the Kustom Boosta-blasta, you’ll be able to bring all the rest of the new Ork buggies to your games.

After you’ve played a few games, you’ll notice that you have enough models to start your own Speedwaaagh! in the form of an Outrider Detachment’s worth of buggies and Warbikes – but what Warboss could possibly keep up?

The Warboss on Deffkilla Wartrike is a brand-new, vehicle-mounted leader for your armies that allows you to field a force of nothing but Ork vehicles. Armed with boomsticks, jet-propulsion engines and a team of very angry Orks, it’s the ideal commander for your Speedwaaagh! – or just a very effective way to deliver a massive, klaw-wielding Warboss directly into your enemy’s lines.

The upcoming Codex: Orks is, quite frankly, the best Orks book ever. If you’re a veteran warboss, this is the book you’ve been waiting for, while if you’ve always been tempted to start a Waaagh! of your own but never quite got round to it, this is your chance.

We’ll be looking at the new rules in detail soon, but here’s something cool from the new book – Dakka! Dakka! Dakka!:

Previously seen as a Stratagem in Chapter Approved 2017, we’ve added this as a special rule on EVERY Orks unit that works ALL the time. You’ll never, ever hit on worse than a 6 – and you’ll get an extra shooting attack for free when you do so. If you believe in yourself, you can hit anything…

Orks are about to get a lot shootier – and that’s only part of it. Watch out for more Orks vehicles and more rules previews as Orktober approaches…
