Live Stream Preview: Orks vs Word Bearers


Date: Thursday 26th January 2023

Time: 7pm

Location: Twisted Dice Youtube Channel.


Introduction


Welcome back to another Thursday Livestream and a preview of the lists the players will be using.


for those who don't know me my name is John AKA The Preacher, and I will be your host for this preview this evening.


Tonight we have two players who need no introduction... well a little bit... in the green corner weighing in at a very slight unknown amount... the Lord of Chaos himself JD.... and in the Red corner a man who you all know and love a man who enjoys bringing his Nobs out to play we have non-other than Darren 'Big D' Allen!


Let's meet the Players.


Players

Jon: "Hi, I'm Jon but most people call me JD. I may have only been playing 40k for 18 months but have been on a steep learning curve. I am laid back and chilled most of the time, I am easy to get on with but get on my "other side" and you will know about it... Mwahaha... I love playing my Chaos and have fallen in love with the word bearers, they have so much potential in a competitive environment and if you are not ready for them they will catch you off guard."


Big D: "Hi all, I'm Darren your favourite and most loveable cuddly bear. I have been playing 40k for too many years to count, and I run Twisted Dice youtube channel and tournament team. For the last few weeks I have been behind the mic but it is time to come out and throw some dice. On a slightly more serious note with The Arks of Omen coming out and the data slate getting rid of AOC (Armour of Contempt), I am bringing my beloved Orks back to the channel to see if they can fair any better.


Mission

Normally I would roll the mission in advance but because I am not going to be in the studio tonight, I will let the players do that on the night... but rest assured we will be playing a mission from the new mission pack.


With that said, I am very keen to see what armies the players are bringing, let's find out.

Preacher: We have a new list from JD this week, with the changes to AOC looks like he has had to adapt his previous list.


It is a very interesting list, and looking down it I am very interested to see how that Brass Scorpion does, FW units did not see a change in points for the new season so including the scorpion and the Decimators will be an interesting test to see how they fair in the new meta.


Talking about the Decimators lets just look at those, shall we.....with the 2 xSoulburner petard on each one that is 4d3 shots per guy... each 2+ to wound is a mortal wound... that's a lot of mortal wounds but when you have a tide of ork boys coming at you will they perfor as JD wants?

Preacher: That is a very interesting orks list it seems to me very fast and a lot of body's Darren has upwards of 150 body's in that army, he could very easily just swamp the board and control it for the whole game.... the question will be can Darren deal with the Brass Scorpion? and also does it matter if he can't?


JD should not have too many issues detrucking the orks early on but he does not have the firepower to then deal with the orks that spill out so will have to rely on his combat power for that... Darren has the numbers though and orks are no pushovers in combat.


One thing I can say for sure is this is going to be one BLOODY game...


Tune in at 7pm to find out what happens.
