Hey guys, when i started my Ork army i bought one box of stormboyz (five per box) and while playing my first game they just got wrecked almost right off the start. I was just wondering if i just need more? or would i just have to use them more efficently?

Makari should be able to give you a more definitive answer, but I would say it would depend on what you take with them. Normally, one 5 ork unit of stormboyz isn't going to do you much good if you don't have the right things to support them, or if you are going for a mostly shooty army with them. Normally, I would say you would probably want to take either a 10 ork unit, or a couple of 5 ork units, and make sure you have the right support for them.

Thank Joe,



Yea the stormboyz are a tricky lot but can be very devestating if used properly.

So how to use them? Well Zagstruk is awesome to take, allows a deepstrike and assault the same turn.

But wether you take him or not make that mob unit as big as you can make it!!! The Ork army is an army that as a commander you know you will lose a lot of boyz but you just have to take enough to make it not matter.

If you wanna try out more stormboyz I have a bunch if you want to try it out at Eastside Games or I'll see when I can get to the GW store in Hyde Park Next.
