I recently joined netepic and decided to listen to you professionals discussing
elementary thoughts about 40th century politics. not familar with netepic
advanced rules I have a single question about the ork command rule. In SM/TL it
was only mentioned, that nobz had to remain in 10cm of the boyz in order to have
them do what you want them to. Now can it be that I played ork forces wrong for
4 years( not that I used them this often)? I always thought boys and nobz were
two bulks, not similar to dedatchments of other races, and thus very limited in
their deployment. This meant that nobz never mixed with boys to an extent, that
the block of nobz was split up in small numbers. Is it really possible, that I
can make nobz independent units like in the example given? Don�t they have to
become a part of the big nob-mob, once I buy them for support? If nobz won�t
have to stay in 10 cm formation with their own kind, there would be no point to
call an ork force lame anymore. (Ok, I never did so, since I frightenly often
placed my entire goff clan in Skullhamma�s. This would be great, for no super
heavy vehicle would be there in turn one to pin them, and they could dissembark
the same turn in a 45cm radius). This should solve my problems with speedsta�s
stuff. They just are of no use even if put in cult�s of speed, or on first fire
order and out of command of bad moon clans. In the first example they where
close assaulted, as procedure is with shock troops. under bad moon control they
sat a charge rate away from the baseline, and super-lifted randomly selected
