Ork kill teams
« on: May 10, 2017, 03:52:53 PM »
Just wanted to make a post since no one seems to be making any. So here are two kill teams that I think might be fun.
Melee
Leader
 Ork warboss 160
  Eavy armour 25
  Big choppa  15
Specialists
 Spanner boy 70
  Big shoota 150
 Spanner boy 70
  Choppa 10
Troops  10
 Yoof 30
  Slugga 10
  Choppa 10
1000pts
The goal of this team is to get into close combat while having cover fire from the big shoota and hopefully buy another shoota after the first game.

Deathskulls
Leader
 Ork warboss 160
  Combi weapon 50
  Eavy armour 25
Specialists
 Spanner boy 70
  Big shoota 150
   Red dot sight 15
 Spanner boy 70
  Rokkit launcher 130
Troops  8
 Yoof 30
 Shoota 25
1000pts
This is a more shooty  list but with lower numbers, but the goal is to get as many shots out as soon as possible

So I was wondering how these lists might hold up against guard and space marines since those are the only ones I've seen so far. I'd also love to see what lists other people are taking

Thanks for being the first to post in the Shadow War: Armageddon section :)

I am afraid that both your lists are currently illegal though, no more than half of your kill team may be 'new recruits' in this case the 'yoofs'

I am not super keen on the first list myself, I have been looking at a nob with a pair of choppas for the extra attacks and +1 strength, since Orks can't parry (except for the flash git) getting more attacks and hoping to get multiple good roles seems to be a good way to get around some of the combat skill of other armies.

Spanners with big shootas are great, the big shoota is a really good weapon in Shadow War, the fact that it is a special weapon and so can be moved and shot with 2 sustained fire dice is awesome!

I personally prefer yoofs with shootas as they shoot just as well as a regular boy, but are much cheaper, with the boyz taking melee options due to the higher weapon skill.

I think the shooting list would hold up pretty well to both Astra Militarum and Space Marines, using the yoofs and big shoota to pin opponents and then finish them off in melee seems like a good tactic.

Thanks again for posting :)

Oh thank you, I wasn't aware of that I'll remake that deathskulls list.
Leader
Boss 160
 Kombi weapon 50
 Eavy armour 25

Specialists
Spanner boy 70
 Big shoota 150
 Red dot 15
Spanner boy 70
 Shoota 25

Troops
Boy 60
 Slugga 10
 Choppa 10
Boy 60
 Slugga 10
 Choppa 10

Yoof 305
Shoota 255

Thanks for correcting me. I hope this list fits the criteria better the plan is to get another bug shoota and fill out the ranks with boys and yoofs after that. I want it to be a somewhat deathskulls themed team because I just love that they are looters and that fits the setting.
