So, I went down to my local hobby store and watched one of my buddies play a few games with his Ork army. He was running what seems to be the standard build for this edition with our Index: Lots of boyz, two bosses, two weirboyz, and a battery of KMKs. He did fairly well against most other lists, but got absolutely decimated by a beakie player running two Stormravens kitted out for anti infantry. I think they had hurricane bolters, assault cannons, and heavy bolters or somesuch? Not too sure as I don't have the beakie dex in front of me right now. Either way, his boyz died in droves to these things. It got me thinking, do we really have an answer currently to flyer-heavy lists?
I took a look at the Xenos IA, and I see we do have access to the Flakka Gun, but the only platform it can go on is a Big Trakk, and that's quite a point investment to make to deal with flyers for only 4 shots. It does have 15 wounds, but even so, that's still only four shots per shooting phase. Not a lot of power output for the points. The only other units we have are our own flyers. I haven't played any of them this edition (or really ever), so I can't guess how they would fare in a shoot out against another flyer. So, what do you guys typically take for anti-air? Or, is this more a "grab more boyz, saturate the board, get them stuck in fast so they can't get shot up" type of scenario?
