Hi,

 

Anyone know where I might find these?  The rule for other factions seem to have been distributed free, but not for the "core" factions.  Help an aspiring Nob out?

The rules for orks, beakies, and 'umiez are in the main rule book which nobody has because GW is bad at math. I haven't seen a full scan of the main rule book online yet so we may have to wait until the second run or the digital version comes out.

I was lucky enough to secure a copy of the book. You get 1 Nob and up to 19 boyz (including a heavy weapon specialist). They have standard 40k stats. There is an option to buy much cheaper yoofs who have one less attack but otherwise  the same stat line as boyz. Sluggas, choppas, power klaws all look pretty good. The green horde looks to be the best option. Most other kill teams can have 10 models. Some of the elite ones (Grey Knight, Tyranid Warriors) can only have 5 and ganging up in close combat looks deadly.

Pity you can't give your regular troops a snazzgun, those things are nasty. Also, note that the big shoota and rokkit launcha are special weapons, not heavy, so you can move and fire with them.

Edit: Just made a 6 member Bad Moon list.

Nob: Kombi-shoota and RDS.

3 x Boyz: Shoota and RDS.

2 x Spanna: Big Shoota and RDS.

If you plan on playing in a campaign I'd recommend to start with as many bodies as you can, give goods shoots since they don't get 2attaks base and are ws 3. You get 100pts to spend at the end of each mission and it works better to equip then than recruit.

Sounds like they have gone back to 2e ork stats. Did they actually change anything or is this just a copy-paste from a 20 year old rulebook?

Do the boys have today's stats, like BS 2, but WS 4 and 2 attacks... Or did they go back to the 2nd edition, where boys where real snipers with a BS of mighty 3, but had only one attack? :)

He means Yoofs. They're basically Juves. Lower stats but cost half as much.

Woops, yea autocorrect changed yoof to good. If the yoof survives 3 missions it gets upgraded to a boy, and a yoof with a shoota is less than a basic boy.

I don't have the rules to hand, but are you absolutely sure that yoofs can carry shootas? What lists does it say they can take weapons from? Juves in Necro couldn't get anything other than pistols and melee weapons until they were fully fledged gangers.

Yoofs can choose from everything but special weapons.

You can pre order the rule book by itself on the 22nd of this month.

 

If yoofs get upgraded to boyz then I would take as many of them as I could with shootas


May the Enemies blood on your choppa never dry or your welding torch grow cold!

Juves/Yoofs are nearly always worth it in the end.
