No love for the Orks

Its too bad since the Tyranid codex made me think we might see some decent stuff

Yeah... this either means two things. 1. They have an epic codex ghry are waiting to hype up with new models and epic op rules. Or. 2. They forgot about one of the main races of 40k who established the whole franchise and they're going to just throw them out at the end. Either way, I'm out of the country by then so I won't be able to play them anyway. XD

doesn't matter. we'll get it when we get it. 
Let the other actions have their fun while they can. I have a feeling we're going to take their lunch money when we get our codex.

Painting? A hundred new, bigger boyz would be at least $40 for a box of ten. I can handle the paint time, but the actual monetary cost would be ludicrous.

EDiT: Not that costs being ludicrous ever stopped most people from doing anything in this hobby, even me when I was younger. Also don't think that they would actually release a box of newer, bigger boyz because that would mean they're paying attention to a faction that doesn't have shoulder pads the size of a hatchback.

I hope that they don't go with bigger Orks as I have loads of painted Ork stuff already, and loads more unbuilt, so if they did this it would make me an Unhappy Ork, and no-one likes an unhappy Ork. :scowl

And speaking of ludicrous, they better not biggen da boyz without upping their strength to 4. They are already twice the size of the S3 humies.

Is there reason to believe that they will be bigger? Apart from a 30 year history of scale creep?

It wouldn't matter too much if they did release larger orks.  You can use your existing stuff for the early turns as the orks are "far away" - then switch them for the bigger ones for combat.  If your games are like mine you'd only need about 10, as they'd be all that make it.

I get all my stuff from ebay. Right now I have a primaris army that cost like $10 for every 5 Beakies.

In fairness, I've gotten that used to S3 orks (since Rogue Trader) that I had to go back and check. As for bigger orks, I've still got more than a few slightly biggened RT orks in my current armies so I'll leave any judgement 'til I've seen how much bigger the new ones are - can't see 'em being bigger than the relatively new nobz or flash gitz models :?

I could go for a few Larger orks but I look at it like I see the Nue-Beakies. Nothing to rush into. 
I have no interest in collecting yet another Ork army but I'd be happy to add just a few new units as long as they are new models, other wise I'm still neck deep in shoota boys I need to paint. Like 90 or more of them I started some time earlier this year or was it last year... I keep finding bags and boxes of started projects I need to finish or sell. Work, Work, Work.

Well, I can see why you might think that Dim, but it usually only occurs as a result of lazy and incompetent writing ;)

As are my Blood Angels, who I've yet to play a game with. I sure hope they can make the unique BA units worthwhile, as the index is a sore disappointment for the Sons of Sanguinius.
