    I just figured out something – Raptors Centurions can fire their Hurricane Bolters as TL heavy 3 rending! Nice.

      Adam ( September 27, 2014 7:43 am

      Actually, I thought so too, but FW explicitly listed the weapons it does work on in the rule itself. In an email they told me that they intentionally left the hurricane bolter off.

      • Blightstar September 27, 2014 7:43 am

        Oh in that case. Nevermind!

      • Reecius
        Reecius September 27, 2014 10:17 am

        Yeah, Adam and I were all over that like a cheap suit! Haha, but no dice.

    • Blightstar September 27, 2014 7:43 am

      I base this assumption on DA and their dakkabanner. It counts Hurricane Bolters as three TL-Bolters so each gets salvo 2/4. Raptors Chapter Tactics has almost same wording so it should work too.

      (Yeah because gravcents really needed more firepower)

    Thanks for looking at the list guys.

    The weird boyz go with the grots, the grots basically are just there to die for summoning wounds. Weirdboyz last a max of two turns…but if even two daemon units get summoned, they made back their points. (And if one turns into tuska (bloodthirster), gonna be a fun time!

    Each gork has a mek + either the flash gitz, burna, or tankbustas. The meks are in there to run some repairs if necessary (if it doesn’t just explode).

    Something fun I found out yesterday…technically you can disembark from the gork while it’s in assault? Still checking up on that.

    It’s definitely a fun list…basically throwing the ork codex at you as a kitchen sink. I imagine target priority will be an issue for some people, as there is a lot of random stuff in there! (shoot the big things) will probably be the default go to!

      Reecius September 27, 2014 12:37 pm

      Yeah, it looks like a list that would be a ton of fun!

      And I think the Hobby Seminar folks (WGC) are working on a conversion contest.
