A hundred Deffkoptas? In one unit? :O
If you are an Ork player you probably can relate to this crazy idea of mine that will unfortunately probably never happen.
Some of you surely dream of one day building the biggest Stompa or running Da Green Tide with at least 1,000 Ork Boyz. Or.. I don't know.. somehow build a vehicle or create a single unit that in one round of shooting can produce hundreds if not thousands of shots.
You know, man-childish nonsensical ideas like that.
Funny thing how it is always about numbers and sizes with Orkz, huh?
|No. Not you, metal $33 Deffkopta. No one likes your style. Go away.|
But wait.. Deffkoptas only have a Unit Composition of 1-5! How could I possibly ever run a unit of a hundred of 'em? Well, for once I'm thankful for Apocalypse, which not only offers a nifty battle formation but is also the perfect system to field that many orky jetbikes in, because let me tell you what - the unit will eat up your points. All of your points. It's like the school bully that used to beat you up on your way to school and used to take your lunch money to spend them on tokens at the nearby Arcade..
Enter the Deffkopta Big Choppa Skwadron from Apocalypse Reloaded!
The "tax" you have to pay for this ridiculous formation is just 100 points and is totally worth the silliness that you get.
|Yes! It blends!|
Oh well, I'm gonna have like 100 of them.
Batshit Insane: Remember how your 1-5 Deffkoptas are afraid of losing any models, because their Mob Rule is always unavailable? They are now a Ld 100 Fearless unit, haha.
Tuff as Nailz: At T4(5) and 2 Wounds, Deffkoptas are already pretty durable. Add a decent 4+ armor save and a 3+ cover save from its turbo-boosters. Which also brings up a pretty interesting questions - If Deffkoptas use their Floor it Boyz rule and end up at least 18'' away from their starting position... do they count as turbo-boosting?
How to Make them Extra Tuff:
Oh, sup Mad Dok Grotsnik! What's that? Any model in my army can get cybork bodies for +5 pt./model, you say? I'll take a 100, thank-you-very-much. You can keep the extra parts, of course.
A 5+ invulnerable save will come in handy against all those Strength D weapons that ignore your cover saves.
MORE Dakka or More DAKKA?
This one is tough. Do I run them bare-bones with their delicious twin-linked big shootas, allowing the entire unit to be in range of their targets? Do splurge the extra 1000 points to run them all with twin-linked rokkits launchas and go after.. oh, I dunno, any Super Heavy with my 100 rokkits? I don't think I'd bother with kustom mega-blastas. Or do I perhaps run them as a mixed unit - some ratio of big shootas/rokkits? Maybe 6 out of 10 with big shootas to save some points?
Nah. Go big or go home, I say. Why avoid the chance to pay 5000 points on one unit?
Man, I can just see my opponents' faces. "You brought WHAT?!?"
It's definitely not a game winner. Mighty be on the beardy side, but it will look mighty impressive on the table and can threaten one unit at best. You could use them to screen your entire army, though.
How far am I from obtaining 100 Deffkoptas?
Eh. Not very. I only have around 12 of them, but my friend is saving a bunch for me once I get the money. I'm buying them for ~$5 a pop. So if any of you want to contribute to this insane cause and want to contribute somehow to this truly, truly outrageous Fleet.. hit me up at neiskata DOT gak AT gmail DOT com. Who knows, maybe you have a few Deffkoptas to spare or guilt me into buying.
One day it will happen.
And it will be glorious.
Oh, so glorious.
