Warhammer 40k Orks Stompa Boyz – Is It Worth It?

Alongside the Adeptus Custodes, the Greenskins will get a very fitting army box, but is Warhammer 40k Orks Stompa Boyz worth your money?

When a Warhammer 40k faction get’s their Codex in 10th Edition, 2 very exciting things happen: they get tons of new rules as well as some new miniatures in a new box. It’s no different with the upcoming release of the Adeptus Custodes and Orks Codices. While the Golden Boys get a number of Jetbikes, the Orks know that da biggest is da best, and will activate a Stompa to krump ‘em good. But is the new Orks Army Box worth it?

Before we dive into the points and dollar costs of the aptly named Stoma Boyz kit, let’s take a look at what’s inside the new box:

  • 1 new Big Mek model with the incredibly powerful Traktor Blasta and the teleporting Shokk-boosta abilities,
  • 10 Lootas to burn your opponents,
  • 10 Boyz,
  • 1 Trukk to haul them around,
  • And the biggest plastic kit of Warhammer 40k, the Stompa!

Just the list of miniatures is impressive as this is the first time the Stompa has been included in a box. This thing is bigger than a big Imperial Knight – and by a lot, towering over even the tallest holy machines and standing tall next to some of the smaller Titans as well.

10 Boyz and Trukks are some of the best units the Orks have at the moment. While Lootas are a bit of an off-meta choice currently, they could get buffed or changed with the release of the Orks Codex, so they might become a good pick in a few weeks. The new Big Mek model is interesting with it’s phasing ability, letting Boyz get good in much easier.

Next, let’s look at the points cost of Stompa Boyz. Note that this list is based off of the Munitorum Field Manual released March 6th, 2024:

  • Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun is 75 points, so it’s safe to assume that the new model will be around that,
  • 85 points for 10 Boyz,
  • 100 points for 10 Lootas,
  • 65 points for a Trukk,
  • and a whopping 800 points for a Stompa

Of course, the Stompa does some heavy lifting, but the new Orks Battleforce comes out to 1125 points, which is a bit less than the Custodes box, but still a good chunk of an army if you want to start the Green Tide or just expand upon it.

Warhammer 40k Orks Stompa Boyz Price

The most important thing however is the price cost of the new Orks box. Be prepared to be amazed by the sheer proportions of the Stompa again!

  • $40 for a Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun, which is our basis for the new Big Mek model,
  • $55 for 10 Boyz,
  • $38 for 5 Lootas, so $76 for the 10 in the box,
  • $55 for a Trukk,
  • And a hefty $140 for the Stompa – it does have one of the biggest plastic volumes of any kit sold by Games Workshop.

According to the prices on the official Warhammer webstore, the total price of Stompa Boyz comes out to $366. The new box will cost anywhere from $200 to $250 dollars depending on your local prices, which means that you will likely save more than a $100 by buying the box. If the Stompa didn’t sell the Orks box for you, the value hidden in it just might!
