The Ork rumors keep on filtering in, and there is a few here for Flashgits, Meks, Stormboyz, Buggy's and Trukks. There is even a new Mek Tank listed here in this rumor set.


Please remember that these are rumors.

via BoLS 
NEW UNITS
Mek Tank – Sporting a giant Shokk Attack Gun, firing Bomb Squigs. Tank can purchase a KFF.

UNIT UPDATES
Flashgits - Their Snazz guns roll for random range each turn (12+3d6). On a triple 1 they overheat like Gets Hot. The unit may purchase upgrades like +1 BS, +1A, blast, rapid fire, skyfire, ans others, several are mutually exclusive.

Boys - cheaper!

Meks - Look for ability to field an increased number of Deffdreads and Kanns than currently.

Stormboyz - Gain a "Rocket boost" attack that can target flyers. They must move 18” and if they pass a flyer they each get 2 attacks on it as if assaulting a vehicle. Move as infantry during their next turn. Looks like the designers played a lot of THQ's Space Marine!

Buggys / Trakks - May tank shock if they are upgraded with spiked plates/wheels.

  1. I don't believe some of them,

    Flashgitz random range ? Yea sure ...
    Or pay to upgrade their weapons to rapid-fire .. for orks .. rapid fire ? of course ..

    skyfire upgrade for random range weapons so that they can only snap shot ground targets ?! I guess the weapon str is 5-6. It's not like orks already have enough str6 weapons.

    Boyz cheaper - a no brainer, every troop unit get cheaper in 6th ed.

    Stormboyz can hit flyers, great cinematic idea, a shame that they can't even glance the horrible DA flyers.

    1. Skyfire not worth it anyway, as lootas do a fine anti-flyer unit ATM, so unless it's Grot's with their better BS it's just not worth it.

      Str6 weapons only 2 Grotzooka, which cant fire at a flyer, Flashgit's with upgraded Snazzgun's, which i've never seen an ork player use (including myself).

      Stormboyz can hit flyer's with Nob with power klaw or Boss Zagstruk, with a charge that's 2 Str 9 hit's, on average it's 1 pen hit on AV11, everything else with AV10 can be glanced to death by the boyz.

      Mek hell yeah! a tank that poss ram's/tank shock's the unit it fire's at just what a mad mek ordered.

      With they way the other 6th ed codex's have been it's option's option's option's, and what should have more option's than any codex is the Ork Codex as they love Kustomising there gear.

      If only half of these rumour's are true then its going to be fun to be an Ork, as thats what there meant to be, a fun army to play with, cause what could be more fun than having Grot's deepstriking on top of a unit, or a tank transporting across the board with the wrong roll.

    2. true about the stormboyz with boss or Zagstruk, but think of the costs, 10 stormbase with no upgrade cost as much as an upgraded Dakkajet ... :( Perhaps when they reduce the costs of the stormboyz to 8 points they'd become worth it.

      I love my orks, but this rumor set is kind of boring or horrible concerning the flashgitz

    3. That's fine if it's not enough to make you excited as its only rumour's, but why would you run a squad of 10 stormboyz with no upgrade's? A squad of 10 assault marines with power fist is 215pts for the same pts nob with power klaw and 15 boyz.

      I agree on that certian units need to be cheaper, Flashgits for certian (maybe someone will use them then), Meganobz need being cheaper than a termie!

      Delete
    4. I wouldn't use them without upgrades, but I wanted to point out how much more you need to invest into them to make them viable :/

      hmm, I'd really like cheaper meganobz, but I guess they stay were they are, 'cause 2 wounds costs .. but i hope that they are putting a lot of new upgrade options into the new codex for them = a plastic meganobz box with all the options makes perfectly sense then =)

    5. And a friggin boss pole option.

      Delete
    6. Yeah would love to field mega nobs as well the shoild at least have an invuln save and moving them was a pain in the ass

      Delete
    7. I hope they don't change too much the units that are working quite well. No change on Meganobs and Lootaz, for example.

      On the other hand, if they take in the Mekboy Junka and upgrade the Mek's ability regarding Deff Dreads, maybe you see them again on the table.
      The rumor about flash gits is bullshit if you add them to the today's flash gits. Maybe they change the complete profile including point cost and everything else. Then it would make sense. As of today, i only use them if i play with a beginner in order not to win too hard.

    8. I'm sure I'm not the only one speculating that Flashgitz are getting an overhaul to become awesome this edition because they were so awful before (even you over-costed, awesome kaptin badrukk!). This is based on patterns of other poor units getting better with a new codex.
      HOWEVER: the price of better flashgitz is most likely nerfed lootas, again following the pattern of awesome units being knocked down in power because everyone uses them.
      Sad, but if there are Flashgit models and they are freebooter-y, then I'd pay that price! Never was must of a deathskull

      Delete
  2. If these are true, it's good to see they haven't learned their lesson with the Flash Gitz because paying incremental point per model increases to make them even semi-useful has worked out so far (he added with an eye-roll).

    Which sucks, because I like the fluff behind the Gitz, but they're currently one of the worst units in the codex (as far as power vs. cost). If they keep making them over-costed, they'll remain as a unit no one uses.

    2. GW has made Bad pointcosted upgraded in CSM... and in DA (Not as extensiv).... I dont See it changeing.
      Upgrades are a Good Way to make the Game Fun. But i really dont See the current or this Version as Fitting for Orks. Better BS? A ork would only go more dakka and Bigger gunst. Give flashgitz Big shootaz and Price em like nobz. Simple and fluffy!

      Delete
    3. Hopefully flashgitz have been greatly reduced in price, put in a better slot, and have a better basic statline such as BS3 (so upgrade to make BS4 orks!) and fixed AP2/3... Pure wish listing, but that sort of thing could help then greatly.

      Delete
  3. Seriously, if the Mek Tank ends up making the cut, I'd be way insanely happy.

  4. Stormboyz concept made me laugh. I hope that gets in.

    1. If so... The Question will be how Flyer AVs will be developing in Future dexes... Caus this would be very autowin. And if they stay fast Support the Daka-Jet becomes useless

  5. FLASH GITZ!!!

    The tank sounds cool, and I'm looking forward to hearing more about a Tellyporta.

  6. Cheaper Ork Boyz?

    Didn't Phil say that he deliberately undercosted them in the last book?

    1. well, he didn't know of the 6th edition point drop back then =)

    2. They remain undercosted in 6th too. The question is whether they will stay T4 with furious charge as standard.

    4. depends ... but boy spam is just ... eow

    5. I could see 5pts for a slugga/choppa and the shoota a 1 pt upgrade.

    6. Lgun obviously doesn't play orks. Boyz are not undercosted in 6th. They die in droves, don't benefit from synergy effects like gaunts, can't receive orders like guardsmen. Have no armor save and an initiative that is as bad as necrons and tau. Because of their terrible ld they dissolve within a turn if you take them in a squad smaller than 20. Try marching some mobs 36" toward a guard parking lot then tell me they're under costed. They are good at sitting on an objective behind cover and that's about it. Lootas are carrying 6th Ed orks, not under costed boys, and don't even get me started on waaaagh 6th Ed. Compare dev gaunts in a 20 squad to 30 boys, no comparison.

      Delete
    7. They are undercosted. Point for point they are one of the best troops in the game. Just because they die in droves doesn't mean they arn't good, it just means the rest of the codex sucks that it can't compete with an already overpowered army. Shoota boyz are literally the troop to beat in this game.

      Delete
    8. They are viable at 6 Pts, under costed would mean they should be 7 Pts minimum and that would destroy orks as an army. Funny that me saying they aren't under costed means they aren't good in your understanding of the English language. Boyz took a massive hit in 6 th and its rediculous that people claim boys got a huge buff because of overwatch. Basically claiming boys got better because as an assault unit the rule changes have made them more viable just sitting and waiting to be assaulted. The reason for boy spam is that there are no other options, though I will admit cybork grots give them a run for their money. Go back to the tau post and cry about your str8 ap1 broadsides, don't need your trolling over here.

    9. You must be the worst ork player ever.

    10. Army wide DESTRUCTION at 7 points a model.

      ABSOLUTELY REPREHENSIBLE.

      Delete
    11. 5 per model, 6+ fnp, -1 attack.

      Delete
  7. I was dreaming about my orks last night and all the shiny new dakka they have headed their way. I'm afraid cheaper boyz will mean 1 attack base.

    ReplyDelete
  8. You know what would be awesome (and slightly suggested by the rules of moving at least 18 inches)? If sstorm boys could fly like monsterous creatures. The sky attack would be a mini vektor strike on flyers and they could move the 18 inches needed. It also would make them worth buying even at their current cost or even a little more.

  10. maybe the storm boyz will be given krak they were in previous editions

    ReplyDelete
  11. Would be cool to see an option to upgrade boyz ballistic skill like they did with dakka jets. +1 per boy for shootin eye.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Orks are already very good in shooting. What they miss per BS, they make up with Dakka. It's good like that; maybe the only thing they could use is even more Dakka.

    I'd rather see Deff Dreads with a Pikk Upps as dedicated transport.
    Today they're glanced to death before they can say "Ork". With a dedicated transport, we could talk about them again.

    1. But they're a combat unit, they're so slow that they don't get to swing with all the krak grenades. Killa kans is where it's at for ork walkers, great little firing platforms! Can we put three of them in your pickup and make it open-topped? :P

      Oh, and the obligatory... "yo dawg, we heard you like Armour Values. So we put AVs on your AVs so your opponents can roll for penetration while they roll for penetration!"
      Yes, I know that didn't really work but I had to try!

      Delete
    2. Ha, "If your unit counts two Killkans or less, they can use a Pickup. If the Pickup isn't open topped, the Killkans are" :-D

      No really, the Deff Dread is just unusable at the moment. Everybody is spamming multishot S6 or S7 weapons because of the flyers - so the Deff Dread is an easy target for them. It didn't make it into the combat the last three times i used him, now he's out of the list. I'd rather like to play 3 or 4 of them instead throwing him out because the model is nice.

    3. In fact, it would be just an orkish variant of a Drop Pod Cybot.

      Delete
  13. The new Mek tank sounds like the Mekboy Junka from imperial armour 8. the junka can take a shokk attack gun or a kustom force field and can fire grot bombs

    ReplyDelete
  14. All I have to say is that the Orks that are meant to shoot (Flashgitz, Lootas) should have a better BS and a lesser WS they gave up the beatdown for the Kappa Dakka. The point cost for boyz is fine where it is. They need to bring back the special Kustomization you use to be able to do with orks (Cybork Leg, Cybork Arm)and allow me to build my boss to be a BOSS!!!
