Oh god, that announcement video had me hyped for cyboars, but that squig looks terrible, I sure hope they can be salvaged with decent conversion work, I want some Snakebites!

I am absolutely freaking out over this. I wasn't expecting it and I love it. I love the squig-pig design and the ork rider is fantastic. I want an army of these.

Judging from the cartoon video, there are boyz coming too, including one with a shoulder carried heavy weapon old school style, a warboss in bony armor and several squig hauled bits.

 

Looks fun. First time I have been excited for Orks

A more elite, smaller model count Ork army maybe? The thought of painting 100+ boys has kept me bouncing off restarting Orks after selling mine. But I’d go for a smaller force of nice new kits.

Some of the cave painting reveals look really nice and I think that is a great way to tease them. That was a great announcement full of character.

 

I like the look of the Warboss in mega armour with the Grot on his shoulder so hope that's a new model (bit out of touch with greenskins).

There was some Orky rumour engine pics a while back, one of them is in the hands of the grot riding in the back. One of them with twin claws looks to be portrayed in the cartoon on one of the squigriders.

I am glad that I was wrong and it really is more than just a single mini and a coin coming - glad we know some solid info now.

 

These are awesome, and I think the idea of them going all in on Squigs is awesome for 40K.  I don’t think that a revamp of the Boarboyz would be out of place still though - no reason you can’t have both.

 

I also really like the tack they are taking - releasing expansions as “roving bands” (like the Speed Freakz and these Beast Snaggas) - they clearly have a clan that they’d be closely aligned with or might make the full army for, but you might find a few of them in any Ork clan army or just allied for the purposes of some good krumpin’ in a war zone when a wandering Rok meanders in.

 

Triszin, I think that ‘Squig shark beast steed’ is one of the Squig-hogs - in the preview, the phrase used was something like “part shark, part pig, all Squig” or something.


A more elite, smaller model count Ork army maybe? The thought of painting 100+ boys has kept me bouncing off restarting Orks after selling mine. But I’d go for a smaller force of nice new kits.

I still feel like this is going to be a new way to build armies for the future as well - they’ll leave it up to the player to decide if they are going to build a horde with more, but potentially less points-expensive members, but also offer a way to build an army of that same faction with a smaller model count with more points-expensive units.  The “horde armies are always so much more expensive”/“you don’t get enough value/points per dollar out of horde army unit boxes like you do for Space Marines” argument is something I think that GW has actually heard, and this is going to be their method of trying to alleviate that some without completely invalidating people’s older horde armies that they have built up.

 

Plus it’s also how you can get some more sales out of those folks that do already have their horde armies built up - “Here’s a cool new elite-ish unit that you could add to your army - you can always find room for a few more Boyz in the horde.”

 

The question is, if they do this, will they be able to make both armies equally attractive and useful?

It's kinda weird how they're doing these sub-groups, isn't it?

 

In the same way that the Kult of Speed models aren't technically all Evil Sunz but are clearly based on them, it looks like these guys aren't technically all Snakebites even though that's obviously where they're coming from. 

 

It all feels very awkward. I think they should just make these guys Snakebites, make the Cult of Speed Evil Sunz, and then re-evaluate how the army-building works so that you can still get the bonuses you want. Maybe something like AoS Skaven.

I don't think so. The Speed Freaks have never been strictly the purview of Evil Sunz, and I don't think the feral tribes have been restricted to Snakebites. Restricting certain units to certain Klans seems pretty unfun

Oh damn - you’re right, and that seems like even more of a money maker because of the conversion opportunities.

 

You very likely could make Boarboyz from the Gore-Gruntas from AoS by subbing any extra bits from the Hogboyz Squid riders onto those riders.

 

Edit:  Also, now looking at the Ironjawz on GW’s site, I now know where my Ork army paint scheme inspiration came from.  :cuss :facepalm:
