Darrell is off cheese hunting again… he thinks he’s found some by doing a bit of tank-shock… then flaming those Boyz!
Mmmm.. Toasted cheese and Ork sandwich. *drools*
I thought tank shock had become harder to do in 40k…so how much i know these days. Anyway excellent vid, nice and crispy cheese. Does the studio have a bleeper? cos i think a naughty word slipped thru …..will someone think of the children
meh.. they have there own videos now, no more utube lameness. one small slip here and there.. who cares.. go for it. And really cool idea shocking them lik that too. flame on.
Might gave to try this tactic with some Sisters of Battle. mmm…AP1 flamers. I recokon it will kill almost anything.
Interesting vid… If I was staring at two/three different units and I was playing the Orks. I’d wait for the result of your first unit’s flamer and bolters etc. and take the casualties off in such a way as to minimise the coverage of the next flamer.
In a similar fashion to removing the closest casualties if someone shoots at you as they assault when they’re just on the edge of assault range. A sensible opponent won’t take his boys from the back when he’s staring down at three separate unit flamer templates.
If there’s multiple flamers in one unit though… it’s a very clever anti-horde trick
Yeah?… but the marine player can claim that both units are shooting at the same time, rolling all the dice together because they all have the same (BS) and (I)… at least thats what I do. I mean you hear “fire” everybody goes trigger happy no matter if the order is coming from the other unit, they have the same objective, ya know?… Its a very nice tactic, I guess it would work also with small units that are too apart from each other and you wanna make sure that all of the unit fits under a flamer template….. nice!, can’t wait to try it!
There’s sneakyness (!) to be had in 40k isn’t there. Well done Darrell, your cleverest tip to date.
Ive used this before as an ork player. Even us orks know that the more u get the more killy it is. As said, just always look out for the power fist\claw, and your win win.
This a really nice tactic Darrel. Not the crap like burning yourself with a flamer
I’ve used this once in my only apoc battle to date. Chimera with dual heavy flamers + Platoon Command Squad w/ Heavy Flamer + 3 flamers v The Green Tide Apoc formation(at least 100boyz in a single squad) Was quite possibly the single most models I’ve ever killed in one go, somewhere around the 60+mark.
Fellas, stick Vulkan He;stan in there and youe re-rolling the missed wounds… bigbri’s 60+ might have been more like 80…!!!
Steve P ;o)
Ive got a transport for my burna boys, and i can get silly amount of hits and still keep em in the truck, and theyr power weapons too if theres stuff not worth flaming.
you have a point!
burn the green skins !!!!!!
this + salamanders = good times!
my grey knight purifiers with four incinerators love this
Not Cheesy at all. It’s a god damn tactic. It’s called strategy.
could this be effective against space marines? Ramming them with an ork trukk loaded with burna boys?
Use landraiders full of paladins with incinerators and halberds. Incinerate them then charge anyone left because landraiders are assault vehicles. Halberds make sure you go first and there wont be anyone alive to hit back.
Nice tactic, have to put that to use.
15 burna boys and 2 big meks with burnas in open top battlewagon, place one flame template anywhere so small end is touching any part of the battlewagon times number of models under template buy 17 and goodbye to whatever your shooting!!
A good player will pull deaths from the front leaving the oponent with less flamer targets for the second squad of flamers. Let’s not forget the 1 inch rule. Boxing in with two rhinos will not work as well as the video shows.
Nice to have you back Darrell. *thumbs up*
“Noah was the other dude.” Darrell is the king
BWAHAHAHA “They don’t have a save worth shit.” Best BoW line yet!
