Tom was expecting me to be using my awesome Nurgle Marines. But I am trickier than that so took my Orks instead. Ha har!
Now the concept of my Shooty Ork Army seems to not compute to Tom as throughout the battle he kept asking why everything had the suboptimal gun options. It is because it is a shooty Ork Army!
Here are Tom’s none shooty Orks
Here are the Shoota boys in there truck, and Tom’s Irish Lager! Here is his token effort for a shooty unit
Burna Boyz and Killa Kans, heavy flank!
So I’ve got the Big Gun, the oldest one ever, Shoota Boyz, Nobz Mob, Warboss, and Killa Kans and a Painboy
Lootas, more Shoota Boyz (see a theme here) and Burna Boyz. There is also a Dakka Jet somewhere
Tom advances upon me. With his actual proper Ork Army that wants to fight all hand to hand. Not like awesome yellow orks that do shooting! I moved up a bit to get some shooting in. It has virtually no effect on those Kans.
Tom butchers my Shoota Boyz but at a massive cost of boyz. I have 3 Kans to kill the Deff Dread and Nobz to kill boyz. The Dakka Jet is hunting Warbosses!
Tom’s Shoota Boyz gun down all the Lootas and capture the building!
The Shoota boyz are backing up the black camoed Nobz. Unless Tom had just not painted them…..
My shoota boyz have bitten off more than they can chew!
So I sent in my Kans to sort the problem, they do!
Now my Nobz go toe to toe with Tom’s Nobz
The Dakka Jet after dominating the field turns on the Shoota Boyz
So yellow proved better than red in this engagement!
Loads of fun and a great warm up for Orctober
Tom wrote a much funnier account Here so get over there and have a little read!
