As autumn draws ever closer, and Orktober is almost over, we look to the future and the long awaited Ork Codex draws closer and closer.
Orks are a great army for Warhammer 40,000, fun to play and collect and not full of themselves like some of the other forces in the game. Some great looking stuff coming soon.
Codex: Orks transforms your favourite army into a flexible, fast and brutal force that truly represents the weird and wonderful ways in which the Orks go to war. All the great stuff you know and love from this edition’s codexes so far – Stratagems, Warlord Traits, a Psychic discipline, and so on – is all here, plus all sorts of special Orky touches. Take Clan Kulturs – powerful faction-specific rules that allow you to represent the unique tactics (such as Orks have them) used by each of the great clans. Or just the army-wide special rules – as previewed previously, Orks now ALWAYS hit on a 6 – and they get to make another shot while they’re at it:
You’ll be able to grab Codex: Orks in print, digital and strictly limited collector’s edition on release – alongside a host of new models…
That’s right – Codex: Orks is launching alongside no fewer than FOUR new Ork Vehicles! Each of these is a radical reimagining of the classic Ork Warbuggy, representing different facets of Ork “Kultur” and giving you all manner of new tactical options when building your army. Need some fast-moving anti-armour capabilities? Grab yourself a Megatrakk Scrapjet! What about some extra dakka? Look no further than the Boomdakka Snazzwagon! Can’t choose? Bombard your enemies with a variety of exploding squigs fired from the Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy.
In fact, thanks to the Deffkilla Wartrike, you can field an army consisting of ONLY Ork vehicles – a convoy of destruction led by a mighty (and mobile) Speedboss.
Every mechanised Ork army will want a Mekboy Workshop. This new terrain piece allows Orks to enhance the abilities of their Meks and keep anything from Trukks to Deff Dreads in fighting shape:
If you’re looking to match your dice to your Ork army, you’re in luck, thanks to a fancy new set designed to fit the ramshackle aesthetic of the greenskins:
To tide you over while you wait for the pre-order, we’ll be previewing the new codex in detail all next week, with an in-depth look at the new rules, buggies and Clan Kulturs, starting tomorrow!
Sly Marbo Returns
That’s not all! If you missed Sly Marbo the last time around, next week, he’ll be available to pre-order once more. The so-called One-man Army is an ideal addition to any Catachan collection and comes packaged with his datasheet, meaning plugging him into your Imperium army is simple.
You’ll be able to pre-order Codex: Orks, the new models, and Sly Marbo on the 27th of October – let us know what you’re most excited about on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page!
