I think GW's fear is that people would take that grab bag and use it to Orkify non-GW tank kits, like WW2 models. I can't think where they got that idea from. *glances at WIP looted Tiger kit on his desk*

Yeah, but we're going to do that anyway so if GW made a skrap yard kit they would at least make some money out of it and it would make it easier to ork-up their other kits so as there wouldn't be as much need to go elsewhere for the donor.

What's with the orky terrain in this knights leaked picture. Also the weird kff looking thing at the bottom.

You can easily loot rhinos for trukks. The difference between the two is fairly small now. You could also use rhinos for a couple of the forgeworld options.

They have not com down saying people cant use things as counts as, they are just moving away from blank template units like the old looted profile.

My BloodAxes have been using rhinos as trukks since RT - the major difference is that you can't see what's in a rhino........or even if there's anything at all in it :D

 

Talking of 'blank templates', most of the weapons in the Index have points values attached so arguably if that's how much they're worth then there's no good argument for not attaching one or two of those to a looted wagon - until they do something about ork shooting it's not as though they're likely to do much anyway :lol

Thats essentially how I play some of my old kit bashed units. As long as I pay for the things on the models and they model was previously legal, my buddies dont mind.

If there was any customizable main battle tank option in the codex to run looted russes or hammerheads or whatever Id be able to at least be ok with counts as. I can dream about looted vehicle entries but I know its not going to happen.

That KFF top looks like the one off the none mega armoured kind, The orky terrain are resin barricades that were a limited run for city fight during 4th ed. they were released back when we got our current Kommados.

Shows you the state of Orks if the official GW is using it in their promotional pictures in 2018. XD

How so? They routinely use old terrain in their photos. Its not just ork bitz that stay in circulation.

Their only Ork terrain is like 10 years old. It's honestly my major gripe with GW. They only really produce Imperial terrain so every GW i go to has the exsact same tables... at least that new webway gate looks cool... (also fish'ead terrain doesn't count because for some unknown reason I've never seen it ever... in all my time playing. And i have no idea why, it looks pretty cool.)

Orks are usually on the offensive so 'ork' terrain is orkified anyone else's terrain, spare kit-bits are also pretty useful for walls, barricades and even buildings + they're not all identical. Also I'd rather see the kommandos updated first  :thumbs

Look at my post again. I said "GW shops" whichnis the only place I can get games. Are you seriously expecting GW employees to encourage kit bashing?

I liked it better when people used terrain that didn't come in a box.

I miss the days when the Ork Codex proudly showed off Battlewagons converted from Land Raiders.

Er, yes - the manager of my local GW is always interested in seeing what I cobble together out of the kits I buy from there and WD apparently still quite merrily features kit bashed models in its' batreps. And when we set up for the mega-battle on Sunday at the last WaaaghMeet there was an awful lot of people in GW shirts crowding round to have a look at our (at least 50% kitbashed) set-up prior to the meatgrinder commencing.

 

Edit - they didn't seem too unhappy about selling me some rat-ogres, a kill-kannon and a set of flakka-gunz to make a Wazdakka out of either.

Oatmeal bins and yogurt cups for the win!

I loved the tutorials in the rule books that told you how to make stuff out of plastic bottles and crap... now that would lose them sales.

Seriously, they can now snipe, do 54 wounds a turn, do 3d6 auto hitting d2 flamer shots!!!! Why do the orks not have this? We certainly pay the points for it!

Hopefully the gorkanaut sees a similar point plummet...
