Variant Ork Army Lists

As most people who play Epic Armageddon are aware, once an army list is finalised nothing can be added to it, so when new models, such as the new Forgeworld Bommers, are released they can not be used in the current army lists…

One thing Jervis mentioned in the latest White Dwarf got me thinking, especially with the release of the Ork Bommers from Forgeworld.

As most people who play Epic Armageddon are aware, once an army list is finalised nothing can be added to it, so when new models, such as the Bommers, are released they can not be used in the current army lists. Either you use the “counts as” rule or create your own rules.

In the White Dwarf article, Jervis talks about having quite a few army lists (aka Hordes of the Things or DBM).

It occurred to me that you could have quite a few variant Ork lists, potentially at least twenty different lists!

Therefore I am working on a Ork Airfield Defence Force which will include the new Forgeworld Ork Bommers.

Big Gunz – Zapp Gun

I do like the Big Gunz models that have been produced for the Orks, I don’t like the lists that all the Big Gunz have to be the same (though tactically I know that is better). I already have a Kannon so was pleasantly surprised when my mother in law for my birthday gave me a Zapp Gun.

It was easy to put together, though no instructions where to put the extra bitz, so they could be in the right place, more likely they are in the wrong place…

Big Gunz - Zapp Gun

It comes with two krew, but in reality you need more than two as they die very easily at which point the gun becomes useless.

I have already three extra krew which I got sometime ago, but never finished painting.

Big Gunz - Zapp Gun Grew

Two are gun krew whilst the model on the left is from the Skorcha model.

They are undercoated white, painted Goblin Green so far and equipment has been painted black ready for a drybrush of Boltgun Metal.
