365 days of Orkmas
but, in all seriousness ... I can't wait !! .. and I don't even play Orks .. I'm so excited for it
just to see my mates putting them on the table

I mean models ... taking my models off the table, not some weird version of strip-40k

I'm kind of sad the big ork knight wasn't released or teased more as a FW model.
from that WD leak way back when.

@FarseerVeraenthis so the best DW anti-knight unit was staring me in the face the whole time, I just never did the math. Hammer Terminators with anti HS/LW doctrine and the +1 wound strat

Averages 12-15w vs a knight profile, which is pretty hefty, and likely to do 18. Add support libby hitting/smiting and you get into one turn knight kills
guy who took DW to 27th at socal was on to something I think

In honor of the final day of Orktober, I've got the 1st pass of the Ork Cat completed.
I relied on leaks to compile all of the changes, and I'm sure the exact wording on a number of rules is a summary rather than the exact text, but it should be ready for serious testing.
Should I create a pull request or leave it in a separate branch?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 31 2018 16:37
leave it as a branch until it's ready to release
Troy Graber
@tag8833
Oct 31 2018 16:38
Will do. Is there anyone that wants to do some QA testing for me, or should we wait on the official codex for that?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Oct 31 2018 16:40
what are you working off atm, just the WC teasers and the leaked points?
Troy Graber
@tag8833
Oct 31 2018 16:40
WC teasers, and leaked points to start, but then I used TT's video where he essentially reads the entire codex: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSYaAwhNhO4
That's where I got most of the power levels and the new warbuggie weapon stats.

Oct 31 2018 16:42
ah, didnt realise there was a read-along vid already
i guess it would depend how patient your QA testers are :smile:

@WindstormSCR hammer-nators eh?? as a squad of 5, 10, or half of a squad of 10 with 5 veterans??
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Oct 31 2018 21:00
5 and as terminators unless you want to use the beacon angelis to get them to target
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Oct 31 2018 21:47
righto
terminators just so they are tough enough to withstand the overwatch?? Or would th/ss vanguard veterans also do the same??

yeah, I need to get some more terminators (I love terminators anyway) to make a proper hammer squad
might make a gun squad while I'm at it
