Can I do an Ork force even if I've no Codex or intention of getting one. I still have all of the StormClaw set (Grukks boyz) but have no idea about points cost or load out for this edition. Was just thinking of vowing them and trying to complete each unit as I go.

I recognise my failing and will be sure to correct it

Well, the event works at the Detachment level, so you don’t need t worry about points and exact load outs as long as you can fulfill the mandatory part of any detachment (so 1 HQ and 1 Troop for a Patrol Detachment). The issue I am having with your question is that you have no apparent intention to learn the new army.

 

So if you could find yourself to may commit to learn the army as you build and paint it then that would be great. ;)

 

I am sure that between the Ork board and fellow participants we can help you find your way and build the best/fun/fluffy (delete as needed) load out that you can with the kits you have.

The stormclaw orks have grots and a warboss so there's a patrol detachment :)

As for loadouts, the only variation is the nobz - anything goes! And the kanz. Again, if modelling for fun, just go for it :)

Do I need to build it? I'm getting a 4.5k force of Necrons that are only base coated but are all built. I've never played Necrons, so it's new to me and I still need to paint them.

Order made, this time tomorrow I should be surrounded by tank bits and their meatshields infantry support. 

Tanks are always fun. What regiment you going with? Or are you making your own?

 

Unsure at the moment, still chewing through the rules and figuring out how many Leman russ tanks I want at the moment. 


Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the centre of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

If something is already build and undercoated that is fine, I expect a few participants will already have built stuff as they may have started the new army before they knew they wanted to take part. As for second hand armies, it seems hardly practical to ask that you unbuilt and rebuilt them :P

Does it count if I expand my Black Legion when PA 2 comes out by diving into every chaos faction therein? Lol. 

 

If the Word Bearers really just *NAILED* the rules I would debate a possessed heavy army across the board. 

 

Once PA2 is out in the wild (or at least rules confirmations) I may just make a pledge for this!

I'm really only playing KillTeam ATM, but intend to use the Orks for that

Expanding an existing army does not really fall within this event, so on that count I would have to say no.
 
However if PA2  releases new/updates rules for specific legions so that they would otherwise be new then you could start a very small new army (Patrol Detachemnt of 1 HQ and 1 Troop minimum) for that theme/Legion as long as it was new for you.

I'm really only playing KillTeam ATM, but intend to use the Orks for that

As long as you can find 1 HQ and 1 troop choice you can vow a Patrol Detachment.
