Nurgle vs Orks (2,000 points) – Battle Report


I’ve only had two previous games against Orks, one pre-Codex and one post-Codex.  I found both games really fun so I was looking forward to this.  This game would be against a very good tournament level player and I knew I was going to be in for a tough one.  But let’s see how I can do.

I’ve only played one game against Orks in 8th Edition and that was when they only had an index, I was comprehensively and expertly stomped.  However Orks are one of the factions in 40k that are really close to my heart.  One of the armies that I started to build, but never played, back in the Rogue Trader days was an Ork army.  I loved the original solid metal models and when they started to have their fluff expanded upon (about issue 120?) I really got into them.  I did play an Ork team in Bloodbowl (Da Boyz, with terribly juvenile names, my lead Blitzer was memorably named Bullet Nipz) and I played Orks in Adeptus Titanicus and Epic.  Anyway, I love Orks.  So I was really looking forward to this game.
