Whilst I dig your passion () Im not sure there will be an Orktober whatsoever this year.

I don't see it happening either, but I can definitely see people hyping themselves up over it to ridiculous degrees again and whinging about it.

October has 31 days -> 3+1 equals 4 -> 40K is pronounced 4TK. Coincidence? Surely not -> a new 40K game is comming. But it's Orktober! A new 40K Ork game is comming -> Gorkamorka confirmed!

Well, all I wanted were several Shockjump Dragstas. I had no interest in the Speed Freaks box & wanted to support my local shop vs buying from EBay sellers who parted out the set.
I had to wait months for them to be released singly.

So yeah, not happy that I couldn't walk into the shop & pick up the pieces I wanted upon "release".

this is a problem with boxed sets in general, chaos obliterators are currently unavaliable and it's sounding like space marine supressors will likely be unavaliable heck Orks never got a plastic Deffcopta outside ABR and it's been ten fething years

Brilliant! Also: sort of guaranteed to happen at some point. GW seems to bring back everything and their adopted children these days. Gorkamorka is among the few side games that has not got a remake so far, and there is a much more rich Ork line to suppot it than when the original was out. The mechanics from "Speed Freeks" even might see use in Gorkamorka 2.0.

I don't see it happening this year, but just maybe for "Orktober 2020".

Any CA2019 with more than no changes to orks would be a good enough Orktober in my book. Just bring the crappy stuff in line with the decent stuff, and I'm good for another year or so.

I hope they brign the ork prices for the new awesome buggy models down where they belong so we will see them in competative lists.

Also as somebody who prefers running bike armies it would be great if they fixed ork bikes and nob bikers, they just are very overpriced for what they do.

There's probably nothing Ork related this October, but having plastic models for characters and a generic big mek would be a nice surprise.

probably true, my wish-listing though is more about some fixes in CA. Though unlikely to happen because we don't have power armor.

Primorkz would be a nice addition. Or some Grot specific Stratagems. Or a Stompa that is actually worth the enormous pricetag. Or a Mek Workshop that isn't just a waste of time and points. Or just some price drops in the next CA, since we just missed out on the last one.

Or a Sguigbuggy that's actually a long ranged artillery / support piece instead of being a confused mess of a vehicle that's not really good at anything. It even fails at being a jack of all trades, what it's apparently meant to be, as it's not even adequate at anything it does.
I really want to like the squiggy buggy and I think it has potential, the problem is that apparently GW thought it making it good would be imbalanced, so they made it useless.
Hell, even making it indirect fire might be enough to be worth taking. There's not many of those in the Ork army, so that alone would make it stand out.

that would be cool, same with a warboss on a bike. it is wierd that while many codexes got models to represent things that had to be kitbashed before with orks we got "index only" and liekly will make our kitbashes for these models no longer viabel in 9th.

Nah we got Copyrightastic No Model No Rules Bikerboss, we will never see a biker character again.

MAboss/Ghaz kit I can see. Just so long as every MA boss ever is always equipped with a GOBSMASHING BUZZWHANGLER and a KUSTOM DAKKA-SUPABLASTANATOR and nobody ever has any other equipment other than that tm games workshop 2019.

Let's all remember Orktober really happens in November. GW doesn't care about xenos races. The only care about making and selling another 500 primaris lieutenants. I've been playing this game since 1990. Thd only reason for alien races is to give marines someone to fight. Too many of the alien races kits are ancient. Eldar aspect warriors, ork tankbusters & kommandos being in fine cast still. It's not hard for GW to fix this they just don't want to. Nobody buys the old stuff they can just cancel it. That production time can then be used to make more primaries kits.

forgeworld has made a warboss on a bike forever. there are 3rd party options but since they have one already in the stable it seemed odd to drop it. though that one has been out of stock for a while

I'd be shocked if GW didn't take the oppertunity to release a plastic spellcaster or two with psychic awakening. Even if all they did bare minimim was release the MoP and Phobos Libby seperately

There's an AoS Orruk book coming up, they might just release one set of models for both AoS and 40k Orruks/Orks.

Orruks have different Aestetics than Orks though. I don't think GW is clever enough to provide the models with two sets of heads so they can be both

Things I would like to see:

* Update on what is going on in the war between the orks/nids
* Primeork Ghazghull Mag Uruk Thraka model
* Updated ork infantry
* New ork HQ models

Will it happen? Probably not but I think its necessary for the health of the setting. Basically everyone I know who plays 40k and got back into the hobby in 8th edition has left because none of their armies ever get releases or have any relevance in the universe. Its non stop marines fighting evil marines. I find it funny that GW has gone to such insane lengths to change army names/unit entries for copyright reasons, yet they don't even support their intellectual property with new models.
