I've been making my way through the Winter Assault campaign on Hard and so far, i've managed to complete it with Eldar and Guard - working my way up to completing it with Orks and Chaos. However, when I start the 4th Mission for 'Disorder' where you choose between Chaos or Orks...when I choose Orks, I start with barely 50 requisition and 10 power... This makes it almost impossible to complete the objectives as by the time you build anything up - the Land Raider convoy is already well ahead and you can't stop it in time. Not to mention, the sheer horde of eldar stuff you have to wade through to get to the psychic shield gate.
Now, when you play Guard, Chaos or Eldar on this level equivalent, you start with lots of resources and power...but not for Orks.
I have skim read a walkthrough to see if this low resource thing is part of the mission and it says...'At the start, build a Big Mek, Gretchin...this, that and the other' and with the requisition I start with, this is impossible.
Has anyone else had this problem? How does one complete it with Orks? Is the only way to do it to use Chaos to kill the Land Raider, then just take your time? Please help me, advice would be very gratefully received. Also, occasionally - when I switch sides to Orks - it shows that I have 4000 resources and a similar amount of power...which is great...but I don't know if that is meant to happen. Please help...

Well thats weird. My plan would be (like you mentioned) to switch sides to Chaos and wipe everything out. After that you could just switch sides to Orks and complete the rest of the mission. BTW- You should get DC, I think you will enjoy the campaign.
Thanks for your advice...i'll keep plugging at it and see what happens... If anyone else still has any ideas...i'd still like to hear them...
Oh...*grins*...and I got Dark Crusade...just want to try and finish Winter Assault first...

I think that's actually supposed to happen, it happened with me so i kept trying over and ovber again and failing, eventually (not sure how) i ended up with resources and managed to complete the mission.
Hey...thanks for your comment. I reloaded the level lots of times after failing and every now and again it gives 4000 resources, etc...I think its meant to be that way. As it seems stupid to give every other race 5000 ish to start with, and the Orks 10.
