    Wanting to come back - Feral Orks

    I have not played a game in a long time. I have stayed with the hobby though through painting and collecting.

    I want to get more back into it, and start gaming again, and going to events etc.

    I like going for Best in Show, that is why I attend. Sharing beautiful armies for everyone to enjoy

    Now I do not know how everything has changed in terms of army building for 8th edition but I want to go back with ORKS!

    They will be a big change of pace for me, as I am used to discipline armies (Space Marines, Guard, Tau).

    Feral Orks to be specific. I know they no longer have their own rules but I can use count as easy enough. Bikes = Cyber Boars etc.

    The theme for the army I have in mind is Nomads. I want to have loads of Squiggoths with tiered towers on their backs. Think the LotR Oliphant.

    What do you think? Is something like this possible now?

    Squiggoths and Gargantuan Squiggoths have rules in Imperial Armour Index: Xenos.

    Regular Squiggoths are Heavy Support choices, so you could take a Spearhead detachment, which would let you take six of them and only need an additional compulsory HQ choice.

    In the terms of Matched Plays, where does it stand on the 3 LoW slot detachment? I would like to convert a few Gargantuan Squiggoths
