Not joking, the article that revealed them called them a freaking tank.


Squigbuggy definetely needs a masive conversion. Looks like a sweet hotdog food truck. And call it a tank is a pure joke.

Yeah.

I mean, Orks need SOMETHING that provides buffs to justify the Core treatment as what we have atm is either stuff we never use (Waaagh! Banner of course is gonna be Core, who cares though) or stuff that would break the army if it stopped working on noncore (Waaaagh! Aura)

Squigbuggy could easily become such a thing, offering random buffs to 1 unit of Core near it and the Squig Launcha enables it to buff a second unit at a distance by "shooting the food at them"
Or just be a static aura and the Squiglauncha allows them to apply the aura to a unit halfway across the table.

I mean, it would also just be hilarious as hell to be t-shirt cannoning squigburritos across the battlefield lol. Squigbuggy has no real place so might as well totally convert the dang thing.

marketing ploy.
Bet you anything its unusually expensive for whats in it too. Later on we'll get individual boxes of it all and go "hey..... that box wasnt a deal..."

Given my track record of games lately i am perfectly fine waiting.

Limited box... lol

Good luck... may the odds ever be in your favor.

Good news though
beast riders, beast rider nob, grot bomb rider
snagga boys, and snagga nob
ZOGROD!!! that buffs grots (except grots will likely still be overpriced)
In a boxset

And they said that only half the models and teased a mega armor warboss!!!!
Plus much more coming later!!

Limited boxes tend to be discounted... the only issue is you normally only want half of it.

A new mega choppa is pretty cool too..
Plus his own grot gunner for better BS

Funny they moved away from Pk (means no dual klaw option unless the kit has alternate arms)
But a mega choppa should be better then the big choppa and not suffer the -1 to hit of PK so it might be better over all
+3 str -2ap 2dam? That would be my guess... which would work with a str6 warboss for total of str9 being the sweet spot. I would prefer -3ap at least on a mega armor warboss but that would make the mega choppa better then PK and I’m not sure they want to go there.

Ok speculation go....
They said during the reveal this boxset was only half the new models for orks and teased the mega warboss...
Considering the new box set had 4 kits (10x boys, 3x riders, named, and boss rider) what do you think is the next 4 kits.

1) Mega warboss
2) squighog chariot cartoon from teaser video
3) ?
4) ?

My guess kommando/tankbusta dual kit and named beast snagga warboss (not mega armor).
   
Made in us

That IS the mega warboss, unless theres another completely different skulpt thats it.

More than likely:

1) Squigrider Boss
2) Squigchariot
3) Beast Snagga Nobs
4) Some sort of Grot unit.

I'd find it rather odd they release a character meant to do stuff with Gretchin and not release a new Gretchin unit too.

Not as hyped as with the buggy release, but I like most of the things. I like the squig nob, still split on the tank-bustas-on-a-squig.
Releasing codices in limited edition boxes is stupid, even if I usually have no troubles getting such things.

The video in the steam essentially ruled out kommadoz for this wave. The squig riders are the new tankbustas.

I always thought they would adapt the 'Uge Hammas that Nobz could upgrade to having in DoW2, since there's no reason for us to have a version of it given our preference for smashing things.

Overall, pretty happy we at least got one new Ork character after how long, and I'm very interested to see what kind of "super grotz" he can bring. Rules-wise this means either something closer to the lines of how Typhus buffs up Poxwalkers, or a pregame unit upgrade that is available if you take him in your army, similar to Bloodbrides/Trueborn.

In terms of the MAW, I'm hoping that a Power Klaw is still a weapon option for him so I can use the Artel W Nookaz as a stand-in for him.

My impression from the video is the boxset was half the new releases and the mega warboss was a teaser for next wave with other half of the kits

To put the paper codex in limited box is their way how to make us use Battlescribe even more? Huh……

The decision on whether or not i try to get that box hinges on unit sizes.

I have a sneaky suspicion that Squigriders are a 4man squad. Why?
A) GW has been doing this lately where new units are in unusually small packs
B) That 4th one, the Nob, is noticably larger and even bigger base. Theres no way he can be swapped with parts to become "normal" - which means worthless model if you buy a 2nd kit to add to the unit.

Though im not sure if Beast Snaggas are 20man max or if thats just whats in the box. Kinda hoping they arent able to go higher.

Nah they'll probably shift to a point system (Marines and Necrons for instance have this now)
Kustom Jobz offers way too much flair and personality to the army. Waaaay too much.

The cave painting of the MAW had a power klaw and not a big choppa, so the kit will probably support it.

Also no way is the physical codex exclusive to the box. Probably that particular cover as it's beast Snagga themed.

Precisely. The power effectively turns your weirdboy into a warboss when you need it, allowing it to threaten vehicles, characters and marines.

Interesting, never thought about it that way. So the fists are for the weirdboy, is warpath for him too? Or do I use it whenever the bois or gitz get in melee?


Your flash gits are locked into freebootaz anyways, as they can't have another clan. Your mek guns will not be affected by a culture no matter what. Since the weird boy has no shooting, all that bad moons does is re-roll ones and shoot twice for 15 shootas.

Freebootas is the best compromise, mek guns that kill something still "radiate" the +1 to hit to other freebootas, so if you kill anything you can get the bonus. In addition, the freebootas warlord trait also could be a good pick to support your boyz in combat.

Ah I thought freebootas trigger only off other freebootas. Hopefully a smite and 2 mek gunz are enought ot at least provide +1 for the boys and flash gitz.

On another note:
Im hoping gloomspite gitz-like units get into wh40k. Or maybe a giant? I like the aos version of the greenskinz where theyre not only orks but also monsters.

The later. Just throw it on whoever you want to fight, and there is always smite to fall back onto if warpath or fists doesn't make sense this turn.

Freeboota does trigger off other freebootas but if your detachment is freeboota then everything is freeboota, not just flashgitz

Personally i reckon the megaboss is the best model they've shown so far. Very curious if he'll have weapon options or if that will be a new weapon or just a plain old big choppa.

Additionally how is GW gonna handle relics? The more unique weapons you give to characters the less viable relics become. Once apon a time you had a choppa, a big choppa and a claw. If every datasheet has a unuique name how would it work?

That could be one of the unknown orks is a new KFF mek.
They gave us back the MABoss, which is more iconic than it was great. The KFF Mek is not only iconic but damn near mandatory in most lists.

Hope is still in the air!
