Thursday Night Fight: Ultramarines vs. Orks!

Tonight’s LIVE game of 8th ed Warhammer 40k is a competitive match featuring Orks vs. Ultramarines! Tune in at 5pm PST for the fun.

Reecius is playing his Orks per the Twitch Subscribers’ vote, and has a nasty Speed Freaks army to bring to bear against the Ultrasmurfs! This list packs some serous melee power and good shooting too with a low number of drops to increase the odds of going first. Deff to all ‘Umies!

Pablo wrote what I can only describe as a “different” Space Marine army for this night’s game, featuring MSU units of Tactical Marines and Devastator Marines, backed by his heartthrob, Bobby G (Roboute), and a smattering of Assassins. This will be a very interesting game to say the least.

    I’m really excited to see how the flash gits do. This should be a food game to see how mech orks do.

    What do you think of Big Trakks? Could they be good in a mech list like this one?

      Yeah, I’ve tried the Flash Gitz in a Battlewagon, they’re hawt!

      And I do indeed think the Big Trakk has a place in a Speed Freaks army, 100%.

      I’ve found its usually worth it to buy the kill saw for the extra 3 points. Love me some guaranteed 2 damage and -4 AP.

    You forgot that ghazzie is actually T 6, also I think Ghazzie might stand a better chance to one rounding guilliman, hitting on 2s and wounds on 2s with 3 damage each is brutal. All he has to do is fail 3 saves. Probably more swingy and less reliable though.
