BS 2? Save of 6? Even an Eldar Guardian can beat an Ork now! (But watch out for those Zzap gunz!)

That's something that they should make up for when the codex comes out, hopefully. Who can afford orks anyway, I firmly beleive they're the best army out there, or were anyway. They're just too fraggin' expensive. from what I see, they just generalized all the orks into nondestinct unit types, I miss clans. besides, with a army that big, you'd fall asleep painting orks that all look the same before you finish the army.

Games Workshop Q&A

Orks are not a shooting army, or a defensive one for that matter. They are just a big horde of "regular" units that are used to mob the smaller squads of Marines, Imerials, Eldar and Dark Eldar and just outnumber them in Hand-to-hand combat. If they can get close enough a good player can take out a good chunk of a Terminator Squad. Even though the Terminator armour is tough, that +1 for every attacker after the first really adds up.

Don't worry, clans will be back in the new Codex (they say), which should be out in June. That +1 per attacker is a bit out of date, isn't it?

Response to ??????????????????

+1 per attacker is only out of date if you play 3rd editon (which suck).

You're gonna have to learn 3rd edition if you want to continue forward with the hobby and attend tournaments. Besides, i like the new rules,they are faster playing.
