First run with Orks in 6th Edition
It was a busy week and I’ve only managed to finish one more of the lootas. I’ll hold off on pictures until I finish the tenth and (for now) final member of the mob. I did manage to get in my first game with the Orks since the start of 6th edition so I thought I’d share some of my thoughts and what I’ve learned.

Saturday was my FLGS’ monthly tournament for 40K. It was 1,750 and here’s the list I brought along. In my earlier practices I realized that my troop selection was too small and I wanted to bulk that out. Often the problem with the current Chaos codex, in order to do that I had to pull/reduce from somewhere else, namely my heavy support and also my HQs. From my previous play testing though I didn’t think it would hinder me much at all.
Last night I faced off against Ming’s Ultramarines with my Chaos Marines, Disciples of Twilight, in a 1,750 game. We decided to use one of my missions, King of the Hill, and rolled off. He got to choose sides and got first turn.
For those of you who haven’t seen them yet, GW has updated their 40k FAQs, including one for the core rule book.
Here’s the last mission needing update for 6th edition. A cleaner version for downloading and printing can be found here.
Sorry for puking out so many missions lately but I was way behind on getting these all updated and it had to be done.
As I map out my switch back to the orks I find myself thinking about one of the more maligned units in the codex – Flash Gitz. I like the idea of armored, heavily armed freebooters. The modelling opportunities alone almost make them worth fielding. However they’ve largely been branded as a non-competitive choice. With the change to 6th edition I think they warrant at least a moment of consideration.
And another updated for 6th edition. Downloadable and printable format is over here.
