View Full Version : Ork Boys advice needed

28-12-2011, 19:14
Hi all

I have 50+ new not assembled Ork boyz - can someone give me advice on how to best use them:
In 1 big unit?
With additional hand weapon or standard chopa+shield ?

Convert them into Savage Orcs and Win.

Kidding aside, it really depends. You could make them Biguns and give them addional hand weapons for a lot of killiness, but most people will tell you that Savage Orcs are a lot better. I personally made my Orc boyz Biguns with sword and shields for the extra saves plus the str 5 hits on the first round of combat.

It really depends on what you want to do with them. For example, if you just need a bunker for you heroes, then give them hand weapons and shields.

As I understand "making" them big uns - it's just naming them that way :-)
Rest of my army is lots of Night goblins , Squigs also I can make 20-30 Black orks.

If you want to run them as a horde go with additional choppas, or spears-

If you are going to run them 5 wide- go with shields-

Normal boyz are better with shields due to already having light armor. Savage boys, XCW is the only way to go. Especially when upgraded to big 'uns.
