What follows is an unofficial Force Organisation Chart for creating a Deathskulls themed Orks detachment for 7th edition Warhammer 40k.
Official Ork detachments and formations in 7th edition are a bit constrictive for making a Deathskulls themed detachment. The reason is that standard charts have too few Heavy Support slots for a thematic Deathskulls detachment.
So I have created this unofficial Deathskulls detachment for Orks in Warhammer 40k 7th edition. This is for the benefit of players like myself who have stubbornly stuck with Warhammer 40k 7th edition due to edition fatigue.
Compulsory: 1 HQ, 1 Troop, 1 Elite, 1 Heavy Support
Optional: 2 HQ, 3 Troop, 3 Elites, 1 Fast Attack, 6 Heavy Support, 1 Fortification, 1 Lord of War
All units in this faction must have the Orks faction (or have no Faction).
The detachment must include 1 Big Mek and 1 unit of Lootas.
Scrap Boss: If this Detachment is chosen as your Primary Detachment, you can re-roll the result when rolling on the Warlord Traits table in Codex: Orks.
Light Fingered: Each character, including meks, can have up to a 5pt discount on any upgrades.
Scrap Dealers: Any vehicle in this detachment can have up to a 5pt discount on upgrades from the Ork Vehicle Equipment list.
So that is my unofficial Deathskulls Scrapas detachment. Perhaps I will use it to make a Deathskulls detachment for Project Mork.
Do you think it is balanced? What would you suggest to improve it?
