I've been playing Dawn of War 1 again (Flash Gitz yey !) and suddenly I was hit in the head by a holy message from Gork (or Mork). I'm gonna do Orks ! I talked with my mates, sneaked into threads published by the likes of Glenning and Synapse, did lots of background reading in books old and new and I have decided. It's gonna be Bad Moonz !
The idea is to go DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA. Lots and lots of shooty, to make the Orkses real happy with their dakka powa, blasting away for the sheer noise of it, hardly hitting anything.
I've just ordered the army and roughly it will be:
Warboss in Mega Armour
2 x 10 Lootas
1x 10 Tankbustas
3x 20 Shoota Boyz
1x 6 Warbikes
1x 3 Deff Koptas
1x 3 Buggies
1x 3 Killa Kanz
1x Deff Dredd
1x 6 Flash Gitz
In my feavered brain this should make these Orks ded shooty ! It also gives me 4 strong troop units and I think a nice balance across the force without growing a beard. Just the thing I was going for. All models to be made in plastic since I dont like the metals much. I just wonder if I will be courageous and convert my own mega armour or wimp out and buy metal ones . But that is to be decided near the end.
For now, the first try out model. The multipart plastics will get much more armour plating so I get to paint more yellow.
