Hi,
   just started to play BFG for the first time in several years.  like most other games I've decided to play Orks.  had my first Game againt chaos and basically got wiped out.  Only my battle ship survived.

We were playing on an open table with no senario just to get use to the rules again.

So heres my fleet, any comments suggestions welcome.

Slamblasta Battle ship with warboss with extra reroll and Mage Armoured boarding party.

2 x terror ships.( one with torps)

4 x Brute Ram ships.

4 x brute Ran ships.

4 x Savage Gunships amd 1 Onslaught

4 x Savage Gunships amd 1 Onslaught

3 x Ravagers (act as close escourt to battleship)


I kept the Battleship and 2 terrors in one squadron to use the higher leadership on the battleship.  

basically everything was going o.k. until the ships passed each other and his superior firepower hit the poor side and rear armour of my ships.

All comments welcome.

Not too bad, personally I'd put a power field on the battleship instead of the mega armoured orks.

Give both terror ships torps with boarding torps.

Also you cannot squadron cruisers and battleships.
So your battleship would be alone, but your 2 cruisers could squadron up.

Hi,
  odds are I'll keed the MABP for now.  My one success during the night was boarding a Chaos cruisers  and doing 5 points of damage.  

Also I'll split up the battle ship and cruisers.

thanks

Dont bother with mega armoured nobz.  The warboss doubles the boarding value of your battle ship anyway, so it starts with a Boarding Value of 28!!!  Even the battle cruisers (like the hammer I  use) have a value of 20 with a warboss on board.  This is more than enough.

Having 3 shields, though, can really help to keep it in working order.

I'm not too bothered by savages.  My favourite combo is 3onslaughts with a supporting ravager.  These can dish out immense firepower, and can deliver a shock by shooting at pointblank with torpedoes.  Orks are so poor at reloading, I wouldn't have a squadron of them.

In the battlegroups, there is the Ork list added to the Deaynes guide.  Try this out for a little more help.
