Why not simply use the DC when counting heads for the Mob Rule?

Effigy
Orks flock to the big walking war engines made in the image of their gods. They feel reassured by these giant effigies of Mork and Gork. Who can stop them when their gods are walking amongst them after all? A formation with one or more units with the effigy rule is always treated as having more than 10 units for the purposes of the Mob Rule.


How about generalizing an ability a bit. If I may steal an ability from Exodus Wars, which I may :), this has really done wonders in my Epic in EW playtests

Totem
Some Stands are able to inspire others, this could be cultural, religious or purely because they possess an awe-inspiring sense of power and majesty. Any formations attempting to Rally within 15cm of a Stand with the Totem ability gets +1 to its test

That's how it's done, it's right in the mob up rule.

Ah. So it is :-D I suddenly realize that I have not really used Ork WEs. Or read the rules, for that matter...

Okay guys, I've recieved alot of ideas and opinions in this thread and by PM:s. Glad to see that the list is so popular among the Epic community!

After a long and hard thought I've come to the conclussion that this list would be most fun to play if the Gargants where equipped and bought like their AMTL counterparts. Therefor i will strip them of all their weapons except the Gaze of Mork and cost them lower (like 500 for gargants and 700 for Great Gargants). After that the players will be able to buy the weapons themselves (3 for Gargants and 4 for Great Gargants). The Gargants will also be able to be fitted with 0-2 Kustom Upgrades for +25 points each (each upgrade can only be taken once).

Also there's been some changes in what formations can be bought and what they cost.

Finally the Mega Gargant has gained a 5+ RA save and also gained the Transporta upgrade for free.

I'm not done with costing everything yet but should be ready with in 8 hours. I will then post the list here and await your critique and opinions.

Four Great Gargant weapons? The model only comes equipped with three. I don't think it's a good idea to leave people unable to field their stock models!

Also, where do Supa Stompas fit in? They should come with three Gargant weapons as well.

More importantly, in the course of two days you've gone from

Also, and this is important, I'm not gonna change that much about the list as it is now.


to basically doing just that. I understand the appeal of an AMTL style list, and that this is probably what a lot of people have asked for in their PMs to you, but a list like this would require a *lot* of playtesting. Aren't you basically starting from scratch here?
