The Green Menace - MY ruleset
« on: April 19, 2011, 03:53:54 PM »
I don't know about the rest of you, but I find the SG ork rules to be inadequete. So I came up with these rules for the WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG fleets.

     Ork Movement:
Orks get +2ld on All Full Ahead special orders, but -2ld on Burn Retros

     Ork Leadership:
Ork vessel's ld is reduced by one, resulting in a 5-8

     Ork Weponry:
Ork wepons are notoriously unreliable, but when they work they can be devestating. Whenever a ork ship fires it's wepons, roll a d6. On a 1-2, the wepons don't fire at all. On a 3-4, the wepon fires at half str/fpw. On a 5-6, the wepons fire at full str/fpw. Ork wepons are chosen randomly from a table in each ships profile. Ork wepons are as follows-
Gunz- treat as wepon batteries
Torpedoes- Normal and boarding torpedoes
'Eavy Gunz- 15cm range, hit on a 4+
Mega Gunz- as 'Eavy Gunz, 30cm range, causes criticals on 4+
Supa Torpedoes- 4+ save against fighters, turrets, and blast markers, hits on a 4+ regardless of armour, 2 damge per hit, causes criticals on a 4+
Deff Kannon- Treat as a nova cannon, but reroll any "Hit" results on the scatter dice
Fighta-Bomerz- Can be used as fighters or bomers, but only make D3  attack runs instead of D6

     Ork ships:

Kill Kroozer
Kroozer/10, 20cm, 45 degrees, 1 shield, armour 6+F 5+sides 4+R, 1 turret
Armament:
roll 6 times on this table and assign two of the opptions to each side and two to the prow
1:fpw 8 gunz 30cm
2:fpw 8 'Eavy Gunz 15cm
3:str 8 torpedoes 30cm
4:fpw 4 mega gunz 30cm
5:fpw 10 gunz 45 cm
6: pick one of the above

2:fpw6gunz 30cm
3:fpw6 'Eavy gunz 15cm
4:str6 torpedoes 30cm
5:str 6 torpedoes 30cm
6: pick one

...no replies. You know, I was kind of expecting people to post comments or complaints like "you forgot the ork boarding modifier"(+2) or something. contiuing on,
 
Deathdella
battleship/12 20cm 45degrees 2shield armour 6+front/5+ 3turret
prow gunz: fpw12 45cm
prow deff kannon:str2 30-150cm
dorsal launch bay:str4 FB25cm AB25cm
port gunz:fpw8 30cm
starboard gunz:fpw8 30cm
port 'Eavy gunz:fpw6 15cm
starboard 'Eavy gunz:fpw6 15cm

Gorbag's Revenge
battleship/12 20cm 45degrees 2sheild armour 6+front/5+ 3turret
prow gunz:fpw12 45cm

dorsal launch bay:str4 FB25cm AB25cm
port gunz:fpw8 30cm
starboard gunz:fpw8 30cm
port 'Eavy gunz: fpw6 15cm
starboad 'Eavy gunz:fpw 6 15cm
port lauch bay:str2 FB25cm AB25cm
starboard launch bay: str2 FB25cm AB25cm

Slamblasta ork battleship
battleship/12 20cm 45degrees 2sheild armour 6+front/5+ 3turret
prow gunz:fpw12 45cm
prow lance:str4 30cm
dorsal launch bay:str4 FB25cm AB25cm
port gunz:fpw8 30cm
starboard gunz:fpw8 30cm
port'Eavy gunz:fpw6 15cm
starboard 'Eavy gunz:fpw6 15cm

Kroolboy
battleship/12 20cm 45degrees 2sheild armour 6+front/5+ 3 turret
prow gunz:fpw12 45cm
prow mega gunz:fpw6 30cm
port gunz:fpw8 30cm
starbaord gunz:fpw 8 30cm
port 'Eavy gunz:fpw6 15cm
starboard 'Eavy gunz:fpw6 15cm

Any one of these can swap leadership with a krozer in your fleet. Deathdella and Kroolboy have Supa Engines which allow them to roll a extra 2d6 when on "all full ahead" special orders.

Hi zaxqua,

The random armaments is a little extreme!
It's unfriendly to the ork player as he will have no idea if he'll get anything useful. However being able to pick where the weapons go could invite crazy good stats. Also the weapon options are in no way equal!
It'd be hard to represent on a model (or at least know what a model has).
There would be too many variants rather than straight out classes, this is a major problem with nids. However you've gone one step further and made it random!

The new weapons are in many cases too powerful.

They already have terrible leadership so a -2 to burn retros seems a little harsh. Why no auto AAF?

What was wrong with random str gunz?

I'm supprised you didn't change heavy gunz! I want them to hit on a 4+ like a bombardment cannon without the crits, or double damge.

Cheers,

RayB HA

The whole idea is that orks do not have ship classes, they gather up metal bitz, wepons, hulks, and engines and build something. It could be a lame collection of junk, or it could be more powerful than a battleship. The -2 on burn retros makes perfect sense, why the warp is any ork going to want to slow down? As for wepons, they are powerful, but almost never work. There was nothing wrong with ramdom fpw gunz, I just thought I could streamline it a bit. D6 str rolls can still work for gunz and torpedoes, but the higher level wepons need the proposed system to work. I like your idea for 'eavy gunz, I'll put that in later.

Also, keep in mind this is a rough draft, and will go through some serious editing once I finish reading through FAQ2010 and BFG:R
