|I realized after the fact that adding in my url was kinda redundant...|
Neverness and I have been planning on playing a new shitty Ork codex vs. the old shitty Ork codex game since my Tankbustas returned. I sold the new codex several months back because I despise it, and reverted back to the previously flawed (but still better for the most part) codex. Ironically though, my Tankbustas are one of the units that managed to improve in the new codex (assuming you ignore the new, retched mob rule) due to the 'Glory Hogs' rule no longer being insanely stupid. That said, in one of my 2 games with the new codex, after suffering 3 casualties, the Tankbustas failed their mob check and then my 15 point-a-piece Orks with their 6+ save tore themselves to ribbons, only 2 remained afterwards rendering the mob next to useless.
Yup, you know they've done well when after winning 2 games with the new codex, I hated it! Locally, when the dust settled, of the 5 Orks armies known to frequent our FLGS 2 Ork armies had been sold/traded off almost instantly. Mine suffered a major purge of the ranks, and the remaining two (along with my shattered army) went into hibernation.
Good Job GW!
Not knowing how many of da Boyz survived ebay, I pulled em out of their case to find that I had more than I thought (though not much by Ork standards). I also found an old list and scribbled changes all over it till I had a new, 1k list for this coming Friday. I can probably stretch it up to the 1250 point mark, but given that neither of us have played in well over 6 months and neither have the 7th ed rulebook either (lol). Odds are the game will go slowly anyways without adding in more troops.
