Orks

Orks Tactical Summary as of 10-26-16

Orks have been the center of Games Workshop whimsy since creation, and no matter how serious the Dark Millennium gets you can always count on the Orks to put a stop to it. Orks in space has always been a bit of stretch, but with a solid fungal Brain Boy mystery firmly established they fit right in. Orks have always played evil patsy, hardly ever the real power behind the throne, but a willing participant through out the Warhammer 40k history.

Orks have had a very up and down history when it comes to the tabletop; with the focus on silly random effects taking precedence over actual fun, nothing says bad game design when your own army does more damage to itself than the opponent. Orks had a good run between late 4th and throughout 5th edition with new plastic kits and great rules. Since 6th though they have had a very hard time staying anywhere near competitive. This is a big problem as Orks are one of the bedrock armies, with tons of players who are now forced to sit on the sideline of competitive play.

The Orks have tons of Formations and Detachments to work with, they just take too much of an monetary investment to field or the bonus rules are just terrible. Orks need some rule overhauls, most notably the whole Mob Rule fiasco still going on. If one is determined to play Orks in this day and age, you have to take it to the extreme. Formations like Boss Snikrot’s Red Skull Kommandos or Council of Waaagh! come to mind, then taking advantage of good units like Tankbustas, Kommandos, and Meganobz to complete a list. Stacking up on Warbosses and other characters doesn’t hurt either. At this point, thinking outside the box is the best you can hope for with Orks, because without an actual update there isn’t much reason field them on the tabletop.

Below you find all the quick reference material you need to build an competitive or fluffy Orks army.
