Just curious, I haven't been able to get the new BFG Mag 13 yet, how good are the ork battleships?
Are they worth the price?

I haven't got it yet either.  I've heard they are okay.  As soon as I get it, I'll post my views.

I have the mag, and they look OK. There are four battleships and a battle kroozer. The battle kroozer looks kinda like an all rounder, the battleships are enough to take on an Imperial battleship, but they vary. All four have launch bays!

They look prety sound, but I'm an Imperial player, so I wouldn't really know!

Cheers

Chris

Well, they represent quite a mix. Each has a different head, and this mostly dictates the vessel. The four types are lances (for Orks!!!), torpedoes, weapons and a bombardment cannon. You can then fit three pallets on each side - gunz, heavy gunz, launch bays or improved engines. Points range from 270 to 310. The only problem that I have with them is that they only have two shields.

Generally, it is worth getting one of them (I will get the bombardment cannon head), and even mixing and matching a few bits to create your own vessel. They do seem to lack a bit of punch when compared to an Imperial Battleship.

Any idea when the models should be released?
Do they help where the orks seem to lack in long range weapon batteries?

Orks with lances? Excellent  :cool:

I would imagine that, if a warlord is aboard, extra powerfileds can be installed as usual.  If this is the case, 3 shields should be fine.
