Building A Speed Freeks Army

Tags : codex speed freeks orcs warhammer 40 000

Small thumb orks buildingspeedfreeksarmy oct18 feature 320x320

Hello there !

The new Codex: Orks is nearly upon us (2w) – and we reckon that if you’re anything like as excited about it as us, you’ll be starting a new army with it.

This codex offers all sorts of possibilities when building your lists – as well as the classic “Green Tide” of boyz, you’ll find Dread Mobs, armoured columns or anything else you can imagine will be pretty powerful. In fact, if you’re grabbing the Speed Freeks set this weekend, you’ll be well on your way to a pretty cool list!

To help you find your footing (and, just between us, to give you a sneak preview of some new Power costs from the new codex), we’ve written a nifty list designed to make the most of the Speed Freeks – if you’re looking to learn more about how they play, you can refresh your memory with our in-depth preview from yesterday.

We’ve built our list using Power rather than points for the sake of convenience. If you’re looking to build a matched play force, this list comes to about 2000 points, so shouldn’t need much adjusting.

“Speedwaaagh!”
HQ
Deffkilla Wartrike – 6 Power
Deffkilla Wartrike – 6 Power
Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun – 4 Power

Troops
10x Boyz – 4 Power
10x Boyz – 4 Power
10x Boyz – 4 Power

Fast Attack
Kustom Boosta-blasta – 5 Power
Shokkjump Dragsta – 6 Power
Boomdakka Snazzwagon – 5 Power
Megatrakka Scrapjet – 5 Power
Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy – 7 Power
3x Warbikers – 4 Power
3x Warbikers – 4 Power

Elites
5x Nobz – 7 Power
Nob with Waaagh! Banner – 4 Power

Heavy Support
Morkanaut – 15 Power

Dedicated Transport
Trukk – 3 Power
Trukk – 3 Power
Trukk – 3 Power

TOTAL: 99 Power

Command Points: 9


The core of any Speed Freeks list is a Deffkilla Wartrike, giving you an HQ that can keep up with the rest of your vehicles AND offer them some handy bonuses, not to mention that they’re brutally powerful combatants in their own right. As such, we’ve picked two so you can spread your aura abilities around as effectively as possible.

A Big Mek of your choice never goes amiss in a Speed Freeks army, letting you keep your favourite Vehicles fighting just a little bit longer.


This is the meat of the army. For fun, we’ve picked one of every new Ork Vehicle – this will give you loads of flexibility and allow you to tackle pretty much anything your enemies can throw at you. Of course, you’re free to focus on your favourites when writing your lists – an attack wing of Megatrakk Scrapjets or a convoy of Rukkatrukk Squigbuggies would be just as powerful!

We’ve also added a couple of units of Warbikers. These guys are still really handy in an Ork army and come in the Speed Freeks set, making adding them in a no-brainer.


Whether or not you use Troops in a Speed Freeks army is up to you! We’ve added a few units of Trukk-mounted Boyz into this list to hold objectives and give you some additional Command Points – with so many new Stratagems in the Orks codex, it’d be a shame not to use them.

From there, we had about 29 power (roughly 600 points) left and added a few nifty units that mesh really well with a Speed Freeks army. The Morkanaut is an absolutely brilliant choice for any armoured Ork army – keep yours at the centre of your convoy, and it’ll shield anyone nearby with its kustom force field. From there, we loaded up the Morkanaut with some Nobz (armed with your choice of weapons) and a Nob with Waaagh! Banner. The latter is cracking for getting some more attacks out of powerful close-combat Vehicles like the Megatrakk Scrapjet.

Fancy building this army for yourself? Speed Freeks is the perfect way to kick it off – make sure to pre-order your copy this weekend!

/Cheers.
Bob.

40K rules for Orks Vehicles

Tags : speed freeks orcs warhammer 40 000

Small thumb orkvehicles oct17 feature

hello there !

GW team released a massive post with tons of spoiler.

ps : The illustration image was named "Leak response" on the WC site

Speed Freeks is a new keyword in Codex: Orks shared by all the new Ork vehicles and other Orks who feel the call of the Speedwaaagh!, like Deffkoptas and Warbikers. In the lore, Orks have always been known for their love of speed, and this keyword lets you represent that with special rules and Stratagems designed just for you. Take Billowing Exhaust Clouds – a great give one of your new Ork vehicles a nifty durability boost:


The lynchpin of any good Ork vehicle army in the new codex is the Deffkilla Wartrike.

This vehicle is an HQ choice that allows any nearby vehicles and bikers to charge even after they’ve Advanced, letting you close the distance on your enemy with terrifying speed before smashing them to bits in close combat.

This ability works on ANY Orks in the same Clan with the Vehicle or Biker keyword, meaning you’ll be able to use it with your Trukks, Battlewagons, Deff Dreads or, if you’re feeling particularly brutal, Stompas!

The Megatrakk Scrapjet is a truly vicious Ork vehicle, excelling at scrapping enemy tanks or turning foes into coleslaw with its drill. Designed by enterprising Meks from downed Dakkajets and piloted by grounded Flyboyz, these vehicles are just as deadly as their aerial counterparts. Just check out the rokkit kannon:

And that’s just ONE of the guns – this vehicle is loaded with deadly firepower. With Dakka! Dakka! Dakka! – which lets Orks generate additional hits when they roll an unmodified 6 – this has the potential to scrap even tougher tanks in a single round of shooting. Should anyone survive – well, just ram them with the nose drill:

On raw number of shots alone, few come close to the Boomdakka Snazzwagon. Between a team of bottle-wielding Burna Boyz, a big shoota and the deadly Mek speshul, this is your dedicated Infantry-killer:

Don’t worry about having to choose between firing your burna bottles or other guns – the Boomdakka Snazzwagon has a special rule that lets you use both in the same shooting phase.

This vehicle is also one of the best defensively, thanks to its Billowing Fumes rule:

Even when destroyed, the Boomdakka Snazzwagon can still cause havoc, thanks to its high likelihood of exploding – just make sure yours is deep in enemy lines when it does so…


If you can’t solve a problem with a Squig, it probably isn’t worth solving. The Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy is the most versatile of the new Ork vehicles, capable of changing its firing profile to accommodate for a variety of different targets. Need to chew through some Terminators? Lob a bitey squig at them. What about tanks? A boom squig should do the trick:

What’s more, you’ll be able to use a squig mine to threaten anyone that gets close! Dealing mortal wounds to anyone unfortunate enough to tread on it, by using multiple Rukkatrukk Squigbuggies, you’ll be able to set up some deadly traps.


The Kustom Boosta-blasta is a fantastic all-rounder, effective at any range and pretty solid against anything you throw it at. If you’ve got a gap in your Ork list, fill it with one of these – they’re flexible enough that to help in just about any situation. Take the guns – you’re armed with four infantry-immolating burna exhausts for close range AND a hefty rivet kannon for picking off foes further away:

Of course, you can just use it to ram people too.


The Shokkjump Dragsta is the most unusual of the new Ork vehicles. For one, it’s – dare we say it – almost accurate by Orky standards, thanks to its paired Grot Gunner and Targetin’ Squig. You’ll be reliably hitting with the kustom shokk rifle on a 3+!

Where the Shokkjump Dragsta really shines is its incredible (if unpredictable) mobility. Roll a 4+ on your Advance roll, and it’ll teleport to another spot of your choice on the board, making it perfect for last-minute objective grabs or getting into position for a crucial shot.

Every single one of these new vehicles opens up countless possibilities when building your lists – and they’re very, very fun to use, too. And we haven’t even got into combining them with Clan Kulturs…

The Speed Freeks boxed game, which you can pre-order it from Saturday, allows you to build one Kustom Boosta-blasta and one Shokkjump Dragsta, as well as six Warbikers. The rest of the vehicles we’ve mentioned will all be available as separate kits alongside the long-awaited launch of Codex: Orks, so keep an eye out! In the meantime, let us know which one you’re looking forward to most on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page.

ps : Grot gunner add 1 to hit roll ^^ and 2 if you have the grot gunner and a targeting squig ^^ (haha)

/Cheers.

Kill Team Commanders Pre order

Tags : kill team warhammer 40 000

Small thumb gwpreorderpreview oct7 feature 5er 320x320

Hello there,

Next week, Kill Team is evolving.
In Kill Team: Commanders, you’ll be able to bring your choice of 41 – psykers, champions and lieutenants to the field of battle.

What are Commanders?

Commanders are a special kind of Kill Team unit, representing the very best of the best. Made up of everything from talented leaders to deadly solo combatants, each Commander is the equal of multiple ordinary troops. Commanders can be used in special open, narrative and matched play missions that allow higher points limits than ordinary games of Kill Team, enabling you to include a Commander alongside your normal kill team or field a larger kill team against them.

Every single Kill Team faction has a commander or two to choose from, with each drawing from a brand-new pool of specialisms, customisable traits and, in some cases, psychic disciplines. Unlike ordinary members of your kill team, Commanders don’t gain experience or level up – instead, you’ll be able to buy levels for them using points when you add them to your Kill Team, making them incredibly customisable.

In the Box
Kill Team: Commanders is designed to let you bring true masters of war to your games, ranging from inspirational Commissars who enhance your fellow troops with aura abilities to deadly Genestealer Cult Patriarchs who are almost as powerful as an entire kill team by themselves.

This expansion features new missions, an expanded Psychic phase and Warhammer 40,000’s deepest character customisation system ever, letting you create the Commanders YOU want to game with. Is your Primaris Space Marine Captain a cunning leader, or a bloodthirsty front-line warrior? Is your Broodlord a stealthy stalker or a peerless psychic horror? New specialisms, optional traits and more let you decide.

Named Commanders

You’ll also be able to pick up eight special Commanders for your team with a host of new expansions. Each contains a named Commander, plus a special skill tree that only they can use, lore, and Faction-specific tokens, giving you even more options to play with when building your roster.

Full review friday night !

/Cheers.
Bob.

Small thumb 40korksilhouette oct4 silhouette1fbf  1

Hello there !

One more Ork buggy remains to be revealed. We’ve seen grounded dakkajets, shokk-attack powered dragsters and even a mounted Warboss, but one vehicle there’s still one more…

We know you guys are dying to see it, so we’ve set you a challenge to earn it. Can YOU guess correctly what it is from its silhouette alone?

Is the new Ork Vehicle: ?

Speed Freeks

Tags : speed freeks orcs warhammer 40 000

Small thumb 40korktober oct2 speedfreeks2p

Hello there !

Big news :

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!

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.




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…

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.
