Best 5 points ever...


So, after playing a few games with my Ork horde. I discovered that moving and setting up 100+ models is a pain. I like the way it plays, but I lack the proper transport for such a numerous host. I guess it's back to my speedy ways. The new list demanded a new War-boss. It's just the B.R. one... with a little extra firepower.

While I was painting the bugger, I got to thinking about what a great upgrade a 5 pt. Scorcha happens to be. Sure... its one use, but with the template and strength of 5. Killing a single gurd model pays for the cost of the gear. There is no real point to just taking the slugga, because you don't get the extra close combat attack anymore. Might as well, give the boss something to shoot. I like to give 'em to my mega-nobz and go burn up somebody's bacon.

He's looking good and you make a good point about the scorcha. Thanks for the insight!

Agree with Shelexie ... good point ... and I like your conversion. I have so many extra black reach warbosses ... I think I'm going to do up a similar conversion :)

This one game, the MANZ jumped out of a truck, right in front of a huge unit of demmonettes. Crispy Crab ladies everywhere..
