hey people

now i know heaps of people ask what army should i do and i'm doing the same thing so what do you guys/gals think?

Orks or 13th company/Space Wolves?

14-02-2008, 08:42
Orks all the way. Great looking new miniatures, solid army rules, plus they are not marines! :p

14-02-2008, 08:44
Orks is da best! Waaagh!

14-02-2008, 09:00
SW are not marines, they are too feral to be so :D

Just read the Space Wolf novels and you'll know why you have to go for them.

Plus Wulfen have a wicked Apocalypse datasheet now :evilgrin:

get orks there are too many marines (wolves are in marines after all) arround, but if you get 13th company hurrey for you.

13th company is WAY different from your standard 'marine' list. That said, they don't really seem to be all too competitive, but I've never seen anyone else with them, so they're pretty unique

this is a great question for me, honestly. My first 40K army for a good two years was Space Wolves, and my second army was orks for another three years. I vote orks. On the one hand (though i've yet to play with the new codex), playing with orks on the old codex for years was a bitch and often quite tough to pull out a win. Opposed to this, i won with Space Wolves regularly.

on the other hand, there was just something so much more satisfying for me in playing orks...it's why i have so much more painting done on my orks than my SWs. I vote orks.

Orks, because there needs to be more orks out there... also, Orks look like so much fun to play.

15-02-2008, 01:39
I say space wolves/13th company just becuase its something different. Doesn't seem to be as popular as orks, of course I could be wrong. Go with whatever one you enjoy more.

I abstain. On one hand, I really have a special love for the Space Wolves (My first Army) and they have an awesome background,

But on the other hand, I always think the world needs more Orks... So much fun to play against.

Respect to both armies; both are excellent.

15-02-2008, 02:02
There needs to be more Xenos armies and less Space Marine armies.

I am all for Orks.

15-02-2008, 02:17
Orks, because they were my first army back in the murky depths of time, and they're finally getting their randomness back. Random is always fun.

15-02-2008, 03:32
Orkies!! Ever since I saw the new minis Ive been hooked

15-02-2008, 04:06
I play Dark Angels and Orks, so you can guess ==My== suggestion ;)

Green is best!

Orks, because they are so much fun, and you can do more with them than with any other list.

15-02-2008, 06:59
Orks now Space Wolves when the new codex comes out.

15-02-2008, 07:05
I say.. if you want vehicles that look like piles of crap on wheels, go Orks. Seriously. I love the new Wartrukk model.. and if I was an Ork player, I would LOVE my vehicles to death.

15-02-2008, 09:27
Both. You canīt get any more awesome than Orks and Space Wolves :D

15-02-2008, 13:39
I dearly love my Wolves, but go for Orks! I am working on Orks myself right now and the new models are amazing. When your Waaagh! is done the Wolves will be redone (or close to it) and you can do them next :D

15-02-2008, 13:56
Whenever someone wants to go for a horde army, I say go for it. Orks.

I voted Orks

Us Space Wolves are not recruiting......just kidding

Basically the Space Wolf Dex is old (granted it still works) - rumour mill tells us it will be replaced sometime during the next millenia and the Orks have just been released and have some great rules....okay the new dex need a hefty FAQ stat but its a better dex than the previous one. And the new ork models are great.

15-02-2008, 19:21
I would say ORKS

15-02-2008, 22:01
If I was to make a SW army I would worry about what a new codex would do to it.

yer it kind did

well i think i might go with Orks... i've had a few friends say i should start orks and have bits of SW everywhere and they also tell me to make my nid army bigger grrr the problems, anywho thanks for all the help again.

i'll post a list up some time soon with what i want to get with my orks so help would be great when i do.

Unless you hate warbikes a good starting point would be a battleforce. 20 Boyz plus 2 Nobz, 3 new Warbikes and a new Trukk. All good stuff.

I am awaiting mine while I finish with the older Orks I bought before they announced the new stuff over a year ago.

Good luck and have fun :)

16-02-2008, 12:51
Wolves all the way. How many Greenskins are out there compared to the 13th Company? Time to bring the gap in numbers down.

16-02-2008, 17:40
Neither, go Dark Angels the wolves are pansy and weak, and orks well they don't need new recruits to the waagghh anymore. Go Dark Angels, the better green.

ork ork ork ork ork ork ork


16-02-2008, 19:47
I have to sawy I love both, as a Viking enthusiats I love SW, but Orks can be vikingish to (although a bit more grrr ish)

Overall I say Orks, while SW are mercifully different from SM, they still are MEQ. And we need more non MEQs.

Dont feed the GWs uber 1337 awesomeness that GW loves. Plus you will also find many players love fighting against Orks. I know if I go in a Hobby store and pick up a game, if they saw SW I am like ok, if they say Orks I am always excitied

16-02-2008, 19:59
I say ork's coz dey iz da best!:evilgrin: they are so convertable i think my head may just explode because of all the idea's buzzing around in me noggin!
