Skarboyz & Ardboyz


  • Skarboyz & Ardboys are now represented by pre-game upgrade stratagems. This puts them in line with things like Alaitoc Pathfinders and does not bode well for them getting new minis anytime soon.
  • YIKES, the Stompas Deffkannon literally has triple the shots! Super Gatler is 50% more shots. That’s a LOT more Dakka.
  • Flashgitz are now really Orky Devastators – with decent armor and much more deadly and flexible Snazzguns.
  • Removal of Big Guns is interesting if true – and continues the removal of old out of print minis from the game. (you can still hobby them up or use them as counts-as)

The original Splatta Kanon is from 1998 – I think its earned a rest.

Now what do you think of the Ork rules revealed so far?
