Ork Nob Warbike

On display at GamesDay 2008 were Forge World’s Ork Nob Warbikers. This is one of the three that make up the £50.90 set.


Now I do like the model in the photograph, however I was less of a fan of the others in the set. Now I do buy Forge World models, but at £50.90 I think that the set is a little overpriced; hey even the plastic Ork Warbiker Mob at £22.50 is in my opinion not that good value for money!

From a gaming perspective, the Ork Warbiker is a mean unit, how do I know, I have a unit of Deffkoptaz.

Thinking about getting the new Ork Mega-Force from Games Workshop which comes with nine Warbikes. Still won’t get the resin Nob Bikers from Forge World though.

More photographs of Ork Bikerz.

Only yesterday on my blog I said:

Now if we could see more innovative Ork stuff and slightly less Imperial Guard I think I would be happier!

Well I suspect that Forge World may have been reading!!!

In their latest newsletter before GamesDay 2008 they have provided a sneak peek of some new Ork Nob bikers which will be available soon and they may even have a few at the show itself!

Looking very nice.

Though at three times the price of the plastic bikers (they are £52 for three), I am thinking slightly over-priced, or are they value for money?

Also am I the only one who doesn’t like the new plastic bike bases?

Ork Stormboyz Nob

One of my Ork units I do like are my Stormboyz (even despite Simon calling them the Lipstick Boyz) however they are leaderless, until now!

Games Workshop do produce a Stormboyz Nob, however it is only available by mail order and not from their shops.

So when I was up in Nottingham recently I did get the Stormboyz Nob when I visited Warhammer World.

It is a nice model and will certainly give my Stormboyz mob a bit more punch.
