Well it Looks Impressive

So Sat is a little 1500 pt tournament at the LGS.  Most of my friends aren't going, and I know several regulars at the shop are heading up the bay for a GT.  So I have no idea what the turn out will be but as i can only squeeze out one game day this weekend this is my only option.

So I'll break out the orks which normally I don't like at 1500 and see how they do.
The good news is it certainly looks menacing.  That's a lot of bodies to put on the table.  Of course I know I'll be pulling them off by the handful but my opponents don't always know that going into the game.

9 Lootas
9 Lootas
19 Shoota boyz, 2 BS, Nob BP/PK
29 Slugga boyz, 3 Rokkits, Nob BP/PK
29 Slugga boyz, 3 Rokkits, Nob BP/PK
3 Manz, 2 combi, BW Ram, RP, BS, Grot Riggers, Armor

Short and sweet.  There are of course some serious concerns I have about this list.  There is only one piece of armor, the BW, and it will likely die really early.  I was going to keep it cheap but I had about 10 points left so it got a few 'extras' on there (but not enough for the Deffrolla).  I also don't know if the rokkits on the boyz are worth it.  Most of the time they should be running, but I know I've also regretted not having the ability to even have a chance to shoot a rhino with the lads.  Lastly Ghaz at 1500 is a big %, and with the Manz in the BW if it gets shut down early it could mean bad news for me.

The upside is the missions are posted and they look pretty good.  They all have a main objective with secondary and tertiary objectives.  Here's the short hand versions.

Game 1: Dawn of war.  Objectives #1 5 objectives (control more); #2 Most Expensive Unit Killed; #3 Control objective in enemies deployment.

Game 2: Spearhead.  Objectives #1 Modified KP (Hq 3, Elite/Fast/Heavy 2, Troops/Transports 1); #2 More table quarters; #3 Slay all opposing Troops.

Game 3: Pitched Battle. Objectives #1 Center objective; #2 Scoring Unit in Enemy Deployment Zone; #3 Destroy Opponents General

So these look fun and not horribly over balanced or showing favoritism to one army.  The first mission DoW will be tricky since the lootas will have to walk on but I have lots of troops so we'll see how that pans out.  The second game I have 15 kp which seems high for orks but I don't have flimsy buggies or trukks so hopefully I'll be able to just bring the killing power.  Game 3 looks fun but will depend on who I draw, but I suppose that's the case for all the games.

Either way I'm looking forward to some fun games even if I get my ass kicked all over the place.
