Throne of Skulls - Alex Y - Day 1

So this is going to be the first of the promised Throne of Skulls features. The information provided is as correct as the circumstances allowed so don't go all CSI on me if the points are a bit out or it was your list and I forgot about or didn't notice a Plasma Pistol that some guy had ;-)


You know that guy who always insists on doing the Waaagh! shout whenever he uses that particular rule?


Ever met one who can shout so loud that everybody stops playing and gives him a round of applause?

Well this one can, lol.

Alex is a die-hard Ork player who has through lots of game experience manages to avoid many of the inherent problems suffered by the average Ork player by the simple and effective tactic of.....not putting himself in that position in the first place ;-)

His current 1750 point list consists of the following,

Ghazghkull Thrakka,
Big Mek with Kustom Force Field,
3 x Lootas,
1 x Meganobz in Transport with Extra Armour,
