Well, here it is.  The list I'm currently using for EpicA Orks.  Its not quite my ideal list, but its what is all mostly made and painted.  I would like a Stompy list, but have and need some KoS.


Warband (warboss with 4Nobz and eight boyz)
     Extras- 5 Boyz (+5 free grotz)
               2 Squiggoths (counts as battlewagons)
               2 Squiggoths
               2 Flak wagons and 3 wartrukks
               1 Stormboyz,1 Kommando and 3 Gunwagons
    Total=750pts

3 Stompas
  Extras- 2 Stompas
            4 Dreads
            4 Dreads
   Total=475pts

KoS (4 gunwagons)
  Extras- 4 Gunwagons
            1 Mekboy speedsta
  Total= 350pts

KoS (5 Warbikes)
  Extras- 1 Scorcha,1 buggy, 3 Warbikes
            1 Mekboy speedsta
  Total= 350pts

Big Gunz Battery (5 biggunz)
  Extras- 5 Big Gunz
            1 Soopa gun
  Total= 325pts

Gargant=750pts

Grand Total = 3000pts.

My big Gunz I garrison.  It gives me a good deal of long range firepower from the off (especially the soopa gun) The rest moves on as normal.

What do you think?

Looks reasonable to me. "Subing" the S/Goths as battle wagons makes sense. ?Like I have said before, some "melding" the old with the new may be required. :;): ?We use the SM1 Codex Titanicus rules for towing Big gunz and the like. ?I look forward to the new Ork Soopa Gun as well as the other new releases :D ...

For my Soopagun I'm using a little plastic gun platform.  Not sure what it is originally.  I got it with loads of other stuff, there were a few of them.  They look a bit like the zap gunz in the big gunz blister, but larger, and have four wheels on the carriage.  ???

Anyone know what I mean?

I have started painting my Gargant, and its looking good.  I have got hold of some flock I'm going to use on my epic stuff from a model shop (their stuff was 75p a bag compared to GW's ?1.50 ! ).  I'll be going back there (I've only just found it) as they have loads of goodies.  Plasticard, flock of loads of varieties, loads of terrain (will check the different scales) balsa wood and more.  I didn't have a good look first time, since my GF was with me.

I used to base all my minis with green flock.. but now I use drybrushed sand with little clumps of static grass- while it may take longer, it makes any model look far better than just flocking, even if it is averagely painted.... :)

That sounds pretty similar to what I'm going to do.  The flock is a browny colour, it looks like mud all churned up.  I used to use sand and drybrush it myself, but now I dont have to bother.  I too am then going to add a little static grass in clumps to add a bit of colour and break up the mud effect.  If there is ruined sections, I add a little clump of static grass on it to look like weeds over growing.

Yeah cool, that sounds good.... I paint the sand with watered down Bestial Brown which "seals" it on, and then drybrush with Bleached Bone to get a nice "deserty" effect. :)
