Hi guys,

To get my friends interested in Epic, I'm going to be getting two 2,000 pt. armies of IG and Orks specifically. However, I could use some help with the Orks. Could anyone give some Ork advice to a newbie?

Thanks in advance! :)

Welcome to TacCom Magos Errant.

For a starting Ork force @2000 points I would recommend a mix of the archetypal Ork units.

Example List
Big Warband with Warboss 350
Big Warband and 2 Extra Boyz and Grotz 400
Big Kult of Speed 350
Kult of Speed 200
Big Blitz Brigade with 2x Oddboyz (2xZzaps or 2x Supaguns, 3 Gunwagons, 3 Flak Wagons) 350
Stormboyz 150
Fighta-bommas (4) 200

That gives a good mix of infantry, armour, air and light vehicles. Its an all-rounder list designed to introduce the main elements of the Orks to a new player. And should form the basis for many decent Ork lists built up to 3000 points by adding some specialist units such as a Gargant, Supa-Stompa, Landa or whatever.

Quick overview of ork units and tactics.

Also, there is a Making Orks Work thread which is a little worse for wear after the board crash, but should still be legible and useful.

Can't see any of the links on the 'Making Orks Work' page, they just go back to the board front page. Have they been lost forever?

Even more disturbing is though it shows 3 replies to your question. When i come into this area all i see is the question and not the replies. :o

FYI, I incorporated the most important bits of the "making orks work" into the general strategy thread.
