Codex Feral Orks

By BobK

This codex is based off the original Feral Orks codex, with updates to take into account the changes to the new ork codex’s layout and the new units, so that players of the old Feral Orks army can play with a proper army of them in 5th ed. In this version only the units that would use shooting as their primary form of attack get a BS bonus, whereas those that operate in a purely assault capacity have the standard ork profile. There are various other changes too, such as the way that booby traps work and the absence of krak stikkbombz that necessitated more modification to the army list than I normally do. I also made the madboyz more mad, since in their original incarnation they were only mad for an average of 1 turn each game, which is pretty tame by ork standards. Note that I haven’t included gargantuan squiggoths as these are now gargantuan creatures and so are limited to apocalypse or special scenarios.

If you can’t find the profile from imperial armour update 2006 anywhere, the medium-sized squiggoths from the old feral orks codex bear a close resemblance.

These units can be fielded by mixing Warhammer Orcs and 40k Orks. Don’t forget to use 40k bases for all models though.

 

Allies: Treat as Orks when determining which allies may be taken.

 

Wargear:

Bangstikks: Gives 4+2D6 penetration against vehicles. One use only.

Boar: Counts as cavalry.

Cyboar: Counts as cavalry, and gains +1 Toughness and +1 Attack.

Flash Furs: The unit counts as having a Waaagh! Banner.
