Orks Special Rules

Dakka! Dakka! Dakka!: Each time you roll an unmodified hit roll of 6 for an attack with a ranged weapon made by a model in this unit, that hit roll succeeds regardless of any modifiers. In addition, immediately make an additional hit roll against the same target using the same weapon. These additional hit rolls cannot themselves generate any further hit rolls. When firing a weapon with randomly determined characteristics (e.g. a bubblechukka), any additional hit rolls use the same characteristics as the hit roll that generated the additional hit roll. This ability does not affect weapons that automatically hit their target.

‘Ere We Go!: You can re-roll charge rolls for this unit. When doing so, you can re-roll all or any of the dice.

Mob Rule: When using the Leadership characteristic of this unit, you can use either its own Leadership characteristic, or you can choose for the characteristic to be equal to either the number of models in the unit or the number of models in another friendly unit within 6″ that has this ability.

Speed Mob: The first time this unit is set up on the battlefield, all of its models must be placed within 6″ of at least one other model from the unit. From that point onwards, each model operates independently and is treated as a separate unit for all rules purposes.

All ORK Detachments (excluding Superheavy Auxiliary Detachments) gain the following abilities

Dis is Ours! Zog Off!:If your army is Battle-forged, all Troops units in ORK Detachments gain this ability. Such a unit that is within range of an objective marker (as specified in the mission) controls the objective marker even if there are more enemy models within range of that objective marker. If an enemy unit within range of the same objective marker has a similar ability, then the objective marker is controlled by the player who has the most models within range of it as normal.

Gunz for Hire: FLASH GITZ units (including Kaptin Badrukk) can be included in an ORK Detachment without preventing other units in that Detachment from gaining a Clan Kultur. Note, however, that the FLASH GITZ units do not themselves benefit from any Clan Kultur unless the Clan Kultur selected for the Detachment is the FREEBOOTERZ Clan Kultur.

Grots: Units comprised entirely of GRETCHIN cannot benefit from any Clan Kultur. In addition, Ork Stratagems can only be used on these units if the Stratagem explicitly states so (e.g. the ‘Grot Shields’ Stratagem).

Clan Kulturs: If your army is Battle-forged, all <CLAN> units in ORK Detachments (excluding those in Super-heavy Auxiliary Detachments) gain a Clan Kultur, so long as every unit in that Detachment is from the same clan. The Clan Kultur gained depends upon the clan they are drawn from. For example, all units in an EVIL SUNZ Detachment gain the ‘Red Ones Go Fasta’ Clan Kultur. If you have chosen a clan that does not have an associated Clan Kultur, you can choose the kultur that best suits the fighting style and strategies of the greenskins that hail from it.

Clan Kulturs

Goffs: No Mukkin’ About

Each time you roll an unmodified hit roll of 6 for an attack with a melee weapon made by a model with this kultur, immediately make an additional hit roll against the same target using the same weapon. These additional hit rolls cannot themselves generate any further hit rolls.

Bad Moons: Armed to Da Teef

Re-roll hit rolls of 1 for attacks made by models with this kultur in the shooting phase

Evil Sunz: Red Ones Go Fasta

Add 1 to the Move characteristic of models with this kultur (adding 2 instead if that model is a SPEED FREEK), and add 1 to Advance and charge rolls made for them. In addition, models with this kultur do not suffer the penalty to their hit rolls for Advancing and firing Assault weapons.

Deathskulls: Lucky Blue Gitz

Models with this kultur have a 6+ invulnerable save. In addition, you can re-roll a single hit roll, a single wound roll and a single damage roll for each unit with this kultur each time it shoots or fights. In addition, INFANTRY units with this kultur gain the ‘Dis is Ours! Zogg Off!’ ability, even if they do not have the Troops battlefield role.

Snakebites: Da Old Ways

Roll a dice each time a model with this kultur loses a wound. On a 6 the wound is not lost. If a model has a similar ability (e.g. the Supa-Cybork Shiny Gubbinz or Ramshackle ability) you can choose which ability to use when a model loses a wound, but you cannot use both.

Blood Axes: Taktiks

A unit with this kultur gains the benefit of cover, even while they are not entirely on or in a terrain feature, if the enemy model making the attack is at least 18″ away. In addition, units with this kultur can shoot or charge (but not both) even if they Fell Back in the same turn.

Blood Axes: Taktiks

A unit with this kultur gains the benefit of cover, even while they are not entirely on or in a terrain feature, if the enemy model making the attack is at least 18″ away. In addition, units with this kultur can shoot or charge (but not both) even if they Fell Back in the same turn.

Freebooterz: Competitive Streak

Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by models with this kultur if any other friendly unit with this kultur within 24″ has destroyed an enemy unit this phase.

Specialist Mobs

Some Orks form specialist mobs – greenskins who share an enthusiasm for a less common obsession, and group together with other like-minded Orks with a propensity for a certain subculture. When you include a <CLAN> unit in your army, instead of nominating which clan that unit is from, you can instead nominate which specialist mob it is from. You then simply replace the <CLAN> keyword in every instance on that unit’s datasheet with the name of your chosen specialist mob. If your army is Battle-forged, all <CLAN> units from an ORK Detachment (excluding those in Super-heavy Auxiliary Detachments) can gain a Subkultur instead of a Clan Kultur, so long as every unit in that Detachment is from the same specialist mob. The Subkultur gained depends upon the specialist mob they are from.

Pyromaniacs: Arsonists

You can re-roll any and all of the dice when determining the number of shots made for burnas, skorchas, burna bottles, burna exhausts, killa jets and skorcha missiles equipped on models in a unit with this Subkultur. When resolving an attack made with the melee profile of a burna equipped on a model with this Subkultur, you can re-roll the wound roll. When resolving the burna bombs ability for a unit with this Subkultur, add 1 to each roll.

Huntas: Sneaky Devils

INFANTRY models only (excluding GRETCHIN). Whilst a model in a unit with this Subkultur is on or within a terrain feature, it gains a 5+ invulnerable save. When resolving an attack made with a melee weapon by a model in a unit with this Subkultur, while that model or any model in the target unit is on or within a terrain feature, improve the weapon’s Armour Penetration characteristic by 1 for that attack (e.g. AP -2 becomes AP -3).

Boomboyz: Blow It Up!

Improve the Strength and Armour Penetration characteristics of rokkit and stikkbomb weapons (these are weapons that have the name ‘rokkit’ or ‘stikkbomb’ in their profile e.g. rokkit launcha, stikkbomb chukka), as well as tankbusta bombs, wing missiles, kannons, killkannons, deffkannons, da boomer and lobbas equipped on models in a unit with this Subkultur by 1 (e.g. AP -2 becomes AP -3). Note that for combiweapons, this bonus only applies to attacks made with the rokkit launcha profile.

Flyboyz: Crucial Velocity

FLY models only. When resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon against a unit with this Subkultur by a model that is more than 1″ away, that unit is treated as having the benefit of cover to its saving throw. When resolving an attack made with a melee weapon against a unit with this Subkultur in a turn in which it was more than 1″ away from any enemy units at the start of the preceding Charge phase, subtract 1 from the hit roll.

Grot Mobs: Cheeky Zoggerz

GRETCHIN models only. Models in a unit with this Subkultur gain a 6+ invulnerable save. When resolving an attack by a VEHICLE model in a unit with this Subkultur, re-roll a hit roll of 1.

Tin ‘Eads: Krush ‘n’ Krump!

KILLA KANS, DEFFDREADS, MEGA ARMOUR, MORKANAUTS, GORKANAUTS and STOMPAS only. When resolving an attack made with a melee weapon by a model in a unit with this Subkultur, add 1 to the hit roll.

Feral Orks: Wildboyz

WARBOSS, WEIRDBOY, NOBZ and BOYZ only (excluding BIKER and MEGA ARMOUR). Models in a unit with this Subkultur can pile in up to 6″. When making an Advance roll for a unit with this Subkultur, roll two additional dice and discard two of the results.

Madboyz: Frantic

INFANTRY and BIKER units only (excluding GRETCHIN). At the start of each battle round, roll one D3 and consult the table below to establish what effect applies to units with this Subkultur until the end of the battle round. This roll cannot be re-rolled. 1. Moroniks: When resolving an attack that targets a unit with this Subkultur, add 1 to the saving throw (invulnerable saving throws are unaffected). 2. Nuttaz: Units with this Subkultur automatically pass Morale tests. 3. Frenzies: Add 1 to the Strength characteristic of models in a unit with this Subkultur.

Orks Stratagems

As of 07-25-2020 Orks Stratagems groups are…

  • Core Stratagems
  • Orks Stratagems
  • Ork Kultur Stratagems
  • Saga of the Beast Stratagems

(See tabs for details)

To use a Stratagem you must pay the CPs specified. The same Stratagem cannot be used more than once during the same phase. Stratagems not used during a battle round are exempted from the limit.

Command Re-Roll: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem after you made a hit roll, a wound roll, a damage roll, a saving throw, an Advance roll, a charge roll, a Psychic test, a Deny the Witch test or you have rolled the dice to determine the number of attacks made by a weapon. Re-roll that roll, test or saving throw.

Cut them Down: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem when an enemy unit Falls Back, before any models in that unit are moved. Roll one D6 for each model from your army that is within Engagement Range of that enemy unit; for each result of 6 that enemy unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Desperate Breakout: 2 CP

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase. Select one unit from your army that has not been selected to move this phase and which is in Engagement Range with at least one enemy unit. Roll one D6 for each model in that unit; for each result of 1, one model in that unit your choice is destroyed. Assuming that unit was no destroyed, it can now attempt to Fall Back, and when doing so its models can be moved across enemy models as if they were not there. Any models in that unit ends its Fall Back move within Engagement Range of any enemy model is destroyed. Assuming the unit is not destroyed, it cannot do anything else his turn, even if it has a rule that would allow it to do so after Falling Back.

Emergency Disembarkation: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem when a TRANSPORT model from your army is destroyed. All units that are embarked within that model can be set up wholly within 6? of the destroyed model when they disembark instead of the normal 3? before the model itself is removed from the battlefield. These units are not affected by the destroyed model’s Explodes ability – instead you must roll one D6 for each model you just set up on the battlefield. Instead of one model that disembarked being destroyed for each roll of 1, one model that disembarked (your choice) is destroyed for each roll of 1 or 2. Units cannot declare a charge or perform Heroic Intervention in the same turn that they disembarked from a destroyed Transport model.

Fire Overwatch: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem after an enemy unit has declared a charge against one or more units from your army. One of the units that was chose as the target of that charge can fire Overwatch before the charge roll is made.

Counter-Offensive: 2 CP

Use this Stratagem after an enemy unit has fought in this turn. Select one of your own eligible units and fight with it next.

Insane Bravery: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem before you take a Morale test for a unit in your army. That test is automatically passed (do not roll any dice). You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.

If your army is Battle-forged and includes any ORK Detachments (excluding Auxiliary Support Detachments), you have access to the Stratagems shown below, meaning you can spend Command Points to activate them. These help to reflect the unique tactics and strategies used by the forces of the Orks on the battlefield.

Mob Up: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select two <CLAN> INFANTRY units from your army that are within 2″ of each other and have the same datasheet (e.g. select two Boyz units, or two Stormboyz units). If one of the units has 10 or more models, and the other has 10 or fewer, the two units merge and, for the rest of the battle, they are counted as a single unit for all rules purposes.

Medi-Squig: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select a <CLAN> CHARACTER from your army that is within 3″ of a friendly <CLAN> PAINBOY . The selected model immediately regains D3 lost wounds.

Snagga Grapple: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem when a DEFFKILLA WARTRIKE model from your army Falls Back in the Movement phase. Before the model moves, select an enemy unit within 1″ and roll a D6; on a 2+ that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Warphead: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem before the battle begins. Select a WEIRDBOY model from your army to become a Warphead. This model knows 1 additional psychic power from the Power of the Waaagh! discipline (pg 129) and can attempt to manifest 1 additional psychic power in each of your Psychic phases.

Ramming Speed: 2 CP

Use this Stratagem in your Charge phase. Select an ORK VEHICLE unit from your army. You can roll 3D6 when making a charge move with that unit this phase.

Boarding Action: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem at the end of the Fight phase. Select an enemy VEHICLE unit that cannot FLY and is within 1″ of a TRUKK or BATTLEWAGON model from your army. Any models embarked within that TRUKK or BATTLEWAGON can make a single attack with one of their melee weapons against that enemy unit.

Extra Gubbinz: 1/3 CP

Use this Stratagem before the battle. Your army can have one extra Shiny Gubbinz for 1 CP, or two extra Shiny Gubbinz for 3 CPs. All of the Shiny Gubbinz that you include must be different and be given to different ORK CHARACTERS. You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.

Get Stuck In, Ladz: 3 CP

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase when it is your turn to select a unit to fight, or at the end of the Fight phase. Select an ORK INFANTRY unit from your army that has already fought once this Fight phase to fight a second time.

Use this Stratagem when an ORK CHARACTER model from your army is slain. That model is not removed from the battlefield as normal, and can immediately either shoot as if it were your Shooting phase, or fight as if it were the Fight phase. The slain model is then removed from the battlefield.

Tellyporta: 2 CP

Use this Stratagem during deployment. You can set up an ORK unit from your army with a Power Rating of 20 or less on a tellyporta pad instead of placing it on the battlefield.

Long, Uncontrolled Bursts: 1 CP

Unstoppable Green Tide: 3 CP

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select a unit of BOYZ from your army that has less than half its starting number of models and remove it from the battlefield. You can then set it up again wholly within 6″ of the edge of the battlefield and more than 9″ from any enemy models, at its full starting strength. You cannot select a unit for this Stratagem that has been merged via the Mob Up Stratagem. You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.

If your army is Battle-forged and includes any ORK Detachments (excluding Auxiliary Support Detachments), you have access to the Stratagems shown below, meaning you can spend Command Points to activate them. These help to reflect the unique tactics and strategies used by the forces of the Orks on the battlefield.

Monster Hunters (Snakebite): 3 CP

Dead Sneaky (Blood Axe): 1/2 CP

Use this Stratagem during deployment. If you spent 1 CP, select a BLOOD AXE INFANTRY unit from your army that has a Power Rating of 8 or less and set it up in hiding instead of placing it on the battlefield. If you spent 2 CPs, select a BLOOD AXE INFANTRY unit that has a Power Rating of 9 or more instead. At the end of any of your Movement phases that unit can emerge from hiding – set it up anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9″ away from any enemy models.

Kill-Koozer Broadside (Freebooterz): 3 CP

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Shooting phase. Select up to D3 points on the battlefield, each more than 6″ away from the others and visible to a FREEBOOTERZ unit from your army.
