Would not be too surprising if they did. The new stuff for the Sisters of Battle also came in two waves separated by a month or so. Can't recall the exact waiting time because I luckily didn't want anything from wave two, but those waiting for the castigator to be released had to wait a while after the codex released.

While I'm glad AoS will finally have pre-orders next week, I find it weir how they also paused Ork releases.

They referenced that Orktober came earlier this year. Would be a kick in the nuts if they actually waited until october to release the rest of ork stuff.

Honestly, there's not too much stuff missing for the Ork release going off the Beastsnagga book.

The dual kit Rig, the Dok, Kommandos, and the Great White Squig/Squigosaur Boss. That's a light week.

It's not that weird. Splitting releases for the same faction across more than one month means that:

a) Buyers have more time to clear their pile of shame (how many people will paint a full Combat Patrol or army box in 1-2 weeks?)
b) Anyone with a budget for hobby stuff is less likely to pick & choose between new releases

Although it would be nice to get all the orks released in one wave I'm really pleased they are finally releasing the stormcast book and the orruk book. Personally loved getting into AOS but paused doing any more until the battletome came out.

Talking about the last time GW made a truly multipose kit - probably 2016, with Genestealer Hybrid Acolytes. 5 pairs of legs, 5 torsos, any torso goes on any pair of legs. Enough weapons for a full squad of both loadouts, all regular weapons can go on any body, all special weapons included in the kit, I believe you even get two different copies of one. 21 heads for a squad of five. And all that just a few years ago, it's almost impressive how quickly GW degenerated to the point of new Snagga Boyz.

Ooof yeah, that kit is a good kit. You sure pay a pretty penny for it but it really is chockablock with bits. And GW probably sells hardly any of them because GSC have languished in the basement for so long.

New FAQ/Errata updates for Codex: Orks and the Imperial Armour Compendium (mostly Ork related) are now available.

Trukk Boyz can actually ride in Trukks now, as Mork intended!

Nope, speedboss so speedwaagh is all he can call on his own. But I think he would be a fantastic secondary boss, let a foot or squigboss call the waaagh so the bikerboss can advance and charge.

Hopefully with the killa klaw he can hit hard enough to wipe out an important target.

Speedboss is all that matters for a biker boss, and finally he has a built in invuln now. I would have been very pissed if GW made him a warboss and not a speedboss. Lots of good choices from the codex to call a waaaagh, but only the crappy wartrike to call the speedwaaagh. God job GW on this one.

I don't know whether this had been confirmed yet, but I figured it best to post it here now that I have a set.

The new Deff Koptaz, as we know, are pushfit. Sadly, despite perhaps hoping foolishly, the one with the custom blast thingy and big bomb only has that option. It cannot be given rokkits. It's solid cast with the gun attached.

I suppose having another option is always great, but damn the speedwaaagh is hard to really utilize all elements of it.

Ugh, 13 years of waiting and it's a monobuild monopse kit. This is one whefre I really wouldn't mind if they did a dual kit and shoehorned in another unit type or weapon loadout "just to sell more kits".

IMHO it's the opposite. Speedwaaagh is the way to go as it's easy to get a lot of improvements across the army, while waaagh doesn't really add much. It's way easier to get tons of more shots and better AP than a significant amount of additional attacks in melee. Now we don't have to bring the wartrike as the mandatory tax to run a speedwaaagh. Another fast HQ that calls the waaagh wasn't needed, we already had the squig rider guy and the special character squig rider guy for that, plus tons of footslogging options.

Yeah, this was a disappointing find when I opened my box. Fortunately I already have three Black Reach choppers so I'm not really in the market to buy more past these, but I'm still iffy on the KMB and Big Bomb loadout.

Unless you somehow got it from a from a FLGs before it went up online, shouldn't you be able to tell they're monopose by simply looking at them in the store?

GW didn't put all three sprues on the website. They put a duplicate of one of them. We couldn't see.

Well, i assume by now they've changed it, since it has all three right now. Which, in turn caused my confusion.

Should this be the case then, well, the Squigrig thingy is a pricey model:




The Squigosaur seems to be the same price as a box of Beastsnagga Boyz.

Gotta charge those premium new kit prices, how else can they assert their dominance in the new release? I guess the BW at least beats out the Kill Rig in IRL money cost if not in-game cost efficiency lol.
