Hmm depends on your Playstyle.

For me my four Roks are working fine they are somthing like an cheap core that have some decent firepower.

I usually have at least two  Terrorships for some Ordnance Support in my List most of the time with Boarding Torpedos.

I love Grunt Escorts with Claws and my Enmy fear the Onslaught I alwas add some brute Ships to go down first to the expensive Escort Squads Just to make shure they make at least one Run on Full Power.

Everything else depends the Battleships are nice but Compared to the Cruisers they lack two health and they are always the main Target for the Enemy.

Killkroozerz are Usefull but hmm most of the Time I found the Terror Ships better. But have to say I only have two Kill Kroozers so never played heavy on them.

Ork can go many Concepts I mostly go Ordnance Heavy try to Board as much as I can and let thoose lobly Grunts finish the enemy.

But you can go with extrem Fast Fleets or push on more Shields or make use of many heavy Guns Orks are so Diverse there is no go with thoose and Everthing is fine.

What ever player should be Aware of you are not really Manoeuvre Pros once your fleet meet sthe enemy it tooks you some time to get back in a good position. So begin to turn really erly and bring at least some Units that stay in second row and give crippled enemy the finishing Strike.

Most important Orks donít have reliable Firepower most of the time itís disappointing.

I like them a lot.

Terror ships are pretty much a must-have, but other than that you have lots of options (and I've heard that one like taking just a hulk and swarms of escorts, so even that rule is flexible).

Kill kruisers have always disappointed me and feel overpriced for what they bring.

I've had lots of hilarity but not much success running brute ramships (except that one game that I hit a chaos cruiser with a full skwadron of 8 due to perfect positioning and did something like 22 hits before brace saves). My favorite escorts are the ones with 'eavy guns (don't remember the name), but they're pretty limited by range and maneuverability, so you want some more options in your fleet (I like pairing them with torpedo escorts to trry to herd opponents towards them)

I usually use Kill Kroozers and Brute Lite Kroozers backed up woth a lot of escorts. The key tactic uve found is layering your threats so that you hit the enemy is waves, ad it gives you enough time to come around for another pass.  I actually take few terror ships, usually just 1 or 2 in most games.

I also love Zzapp guns, but that goes with my Big Mek Whiz-Bang.

Don't forget Ravagers!  On average, a squad of 6 will fire 21 torpedoes.  Compare that to 6 Imperial Cobras which will fire 12.  Shotgun to kill a cruiser in one go or spray and pray to make the board a nightmare minefield.  Add boarding torpedoes for more fun!

Onslaught escorts are a must have against Eldar.

Most people like the Terror Ship because it's full of awesome ordnance, but consider having one or two Kill Kroozers for those missions where you need a cheap kroozer that has 10HP.

Pick your favorite named ship and make that your flagship.  People usually go Gorbag's Revenge due to the sweet sweet ordnance, but I'm partial to Deathdeala for Bombardment Cannon action and 4D6 AAF.

Nothing else.




OK I'm done.

I lobe thoose Tavangers too specially with looted Torpedos or the right clan.

 Ut and thats an great Bit Orks canít Combine Salvos so it wouldnít be one Salvo of 21 there are six salvo of avarage 3,5 Torpedos and each of them have to pass thoose Turrents. But otherwise yes it is the Best Torpedo Escort.
