Revving up for Orktober

Oh my goodness, the latest Ork hype video had me in tears! lol

This article was originally published on the Warhammer-community site. 

To celebrate the return of everyone’s favourite green-skinned warmongering, barbaric xenos this Orktober, we’ve got an entire month’s worth of exciting content for you to help get you in the mood for Waaagh!

We’ve already seen some of the Speedwaaagh!’s outriders in the form of the Deffkilla Wartrike, Boomdakka Snazzwagon, Shokkjump Dragsta and Kustom Boosta-Blasta – and we’re not done yet…

Arriving first this month is the awesome new game all about kunnin’, speedin’ and shootin’. If you like the idea of a demolition derby disguised as a race that channels all things Orky, this is the game for you! Show off your drivin’ and driftin’ skills, gun down your rivals with weapons as varied as shokk rifles and rivet cannons, krump them in high-speed boarding actions and ram them into scrap piles! If you like high-octane, violent fun, then Speed Freeks is the game you’ve been waiting for, even if you’re not already a dedicated Ork fan.

Two new vehicles come in the box, but there are more on the way close behind that can also be used in this game!

Next up is Codex: Orks itself. The book features bespoke rules for the six major Ork clans, dozens of powerful and thematic Stratagems to use in battle, a selection of wazzy psychic powers and updated datasheets – including all the new wagons that feature in Speed Freeks.

We’ll also be providing regular Ork-themed articles throughout the month as well as plenty of looted posts on our Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer TV Facebook pages, so keep your eyes out for loads of information about greenskin lore, rules previews for Speed Freeks and the codex, Ork painting guides and much more besides.

Over on Instagram, we’ll also be on the lookout for your kustom paint jobs. Whether you’re just starting an Ork collection in celebration of Orktober, or are already a greenskin veteran, we’d love to see your work. Just add #Orktober to the image and we’ll showcase our favourites over the course of the month.

If you’re looking to kick-start (or reinforce) your Waaagh!, check out the Start Collecting! Orks set. Alternatively, a Warbiker Mob will help get you all set for Speed Freeks and help bulk out the miniatures in the box. Once you’re done painting, we’d love to see them, so be sure to share them with us.

Orktober is going to be awesome, so don’t forget to check back each day to see what news and articles we have for you.

    So pumped for Orktober, they are my only army and I am really excited!!! But I did notice in a lot of the GW pics boyz are on 32mm. You guys should sell base extenders as I will need hundreds, lol. Happy Orktober!

      TTAdapters are the ones I use, and I’m really happy with them. Solid, easy to use, and they’re the only ones I’ve found that also account for the height difference between the 25mm and 32mm bases. Also fairly reasonably priced when purchased in bulk.
