Hey guys so I've decided to start an ork army thanks to the endless conversion opportunities. I want to do a feral ork themed army from in the snow and I had ideas like stonehorns as battlewagons, mournfang as bikes and rhinox powered buggies. I haven't started anything yet as I can't decide on a list that's both fun and competitive if that's possible.

So far I'm thinking blitz brigad detachment with 3 units of boys and 2 units of tankbustas. Warboss on bike and a Mek with kff escorted by unit of 12 bikers and a bunch of rokkit buggies. I'm still reading through tactics and stuff but I've heard good things about blitz brigade. Any help with strengths and weaknesses would be appreciated and if you want to build a list please be my guest. Cheers

It all looks good to me. I like your thinking on the feral ork themed army and am working on something similar myself, with squiggoths and Snakebite Orks. A cheap hardy unit that tends to last and gives you some firepower at range are a unit of kannons/lobbas ect, maybe with some aeriel shooting options to deal with your opponents planes/skimmers.

Also, Kommandos can be an effective unit to disrupt those armies that sit at the far end of the battlefield and drop templates on your green tide, espescially with Snikrot to lead them in epic sneakiness.

I've never had much use for the Mek with KFF, even more so with the latest codex. I'd give him a SAG instead

Hey mate, thanks for the reply and great suggestions. Really like the kannon/lobby idea as I think it could fit well with the theme. Same with the kommando squad plus would be a fun element to play. Your right about the Mek, plus the more I think about it the less it fits the theme. I was thinking how bout a painboy on bike to replace the mek?

A painboy is always a good investment with nobz /nob bikers to give them durability. As for the SAG, don't forget that it fires warp energy so is as much magical as technological, and may be applicable for more feral type Orks, but a good alternative to this is a couple of weirdboy warpheads for your larger units of boys.

Although the Weirdboy Waaagh powers are mainly 24" range, they are potent, and with boys in the vicinity to bolster the power of the Waaagh he can prove to be a powerful adversary. The last few games I've played with my Snakebite Klan boyz, I've played three weirdboys, 1 warphead and two lvl 1 weirdboys. Who needs Lootas and Gitz when you have that sort of power? and you also get a IC with a two handed potential force weapon so you can save on investing on a nob for that unit if you want

I love the feral ork idea.  I am doing something similar, but instead using ork models as Khorne Daemonkin.  Good luck with the conversions.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've come up with this list trying to stick with theme but also being a challenge to play. The idea is painboy in the boyz mobs to represent warpaint like Aos, although I haven't ruled out weirdboyz instead. They all ride in BW that are converted from stonehorns. A few things I'm still not sure about - my detachments are legal and work like that? Tankbustas over lootas? Also any suggestions. Cheers

You could make feral prk rankbustas out of orks with potatoes and potatoe Gunz.

Wrecking vehicles by shoving them in the exhausts/intakes. The spud gunz would be as effective as rokkits at times!
