I think this was back when the orks were more like your standard fantasy orcs, where A) some of them could have been reasonable enough to do this sort of stuff, and B) they wouldn't have been instantly purged as xenos.

Orks see the Emperor was a powerful warrior God. The fact that his troops are stinkin' Humie weaklings doesn't really matter - the Emperor himself is ded 'ard.

Actually *worshipping* the Emperor is a bit of a push. Grudging respect, sure, but actual worship? I can't see it. The army being referred to, IIRC, is a force of Blood Axe Mercenaries working for the Imperial Guard. I think I have the old White Dwarf with them in tucked away somewhere.

Also, oddly enough, Orks are far more resistant to Genestealer Cults than other races are. Hybrids and those under the sway of the Genestealers are quickly noticed for being somehow odd and unorky, which often leads to the Cult being discovered, rooted out, and destroyed.

Orks are Orks, they can do whatever the fuck they want. I think the whole "Orks can't fall to Chaos thing" is misunderstood, it doesn't mean "there can never be Chaos Orks" it means that Chaos can't force itself on an Ork, ie they can't be possesed, they can't fall to Chaos just like humans do, but im pretty sure an Ork could just go "Chaos good, i Chaos Ork now"

I agree. Even GW agrees - back when Codex Daemonhunters was new, WD ran a series of articles detailing how you could mod races into suitable Adversaries for a Daewmonhunters army. One concept shown by Adrian Wood was Nuglic Orks led by a Great Unclean One - the biggest'n'greenest dude the tribe had ever laid eyes on!

>>15590133
You're mostly right. Chaos has very little to offer an Ork, so it's extremely difficult for Chaos to externally lure an Ork into worshipping the Dark Gods. Your average Ork simply doesn't have the stresses and desires that, say, a human does which Chaos can manipulate. But that doesn't stop some small pockets of Orks worshipping Chaos for other reasons. Sometimes they mistake icons of Nurgle for Gork or Mork. When Nurgle rewards his new devotees, that just reinforces the belief as the Orks think Gork or Mork have shown them favour over other Orks. And young Orks who join the Stormboy Korps sometimes get caught up in worshipping the more martial, disciplined aspect of Khorne. Though in the latter case, they often lose interest and go back to worshipping the proper Ork Gods when they lose interest in all that marching and drilling nonsense.

Weirdboyz can be possessed...sort of. The unfortunate Daemon winds up trapped in the Weirdboyz head, unable to control the Ork and unable to escape. It essentially becomes a second personality and feeds the Ork with even more psychic power.

Orks are far too simple-minded to appeal to any of the chaos gods except maybe Khorne. Orks are made for fighting and winning, which is a huge appeal for Khorne, but they don't fit with Slaanesh due to it not being a hedonistic goal and more in their nature, while Tzeentch really wouldn't really want races of so odd thinking in his army, especially with how fighting-oriented they all are. Nurgle would maybe want them due to how jolly good he is, but orks aren't even capable of despair, which is the thing Nurgle exemplifies.

So in the end, basically only Khorne would even want the orks, and even then, the orks would most likely have too much pride in their own race to accept his offerings.

Now, since Orks have that innate psychic ability, and what ever enough of them think slowly becomes true, if the Great Unclean One leads a tribe of orks for enough time...

Except Slaanesh is the god of excess, and if there's one thing Orks are is excessive at EVERYTHING THEY DO.
Tzeentch is the god of CHANGE, if you haven't noticed Orks keep changing their whole life, not to mention all the mechanical contraptions they do, and not to mention that Tzeentch wouldn't throw away the chance to get an army of green idiots that would follow his orders blindly because "Gork and Morke told me to bash dem humies"
Nurgle is Nurgle, he like the Orks can do whatever the fuck he wants.

Orks are apparently one of the hardest creatures to turn to Chaos, and when one does he's usually alone, surrounded by his former mates for not being "Orky enuff". That said, there are probably a couple of Chaos Orks who've risen through the ranks enough to become a Demon Prince. Not many though.

It's a bit of a muddle, made worst by the fact the current fluff is deliberately vague. The original fluff suggested that the Snotlings were once hyper-intellegent creatures that gained their brainpower from a certain type of fungus. They created the Orks to fight and farm for them, but the Orks rebelled and destroyed the fungus supplies. Without it, the Brainboyz devolved into the Snotlings. But before they did, they programmed the genetic memories into the Orks, so at least some trace of their knowledge would survive.

New fluff suggests the Brainboyz were the Old Ones who created the Orks, and their disappearance was due to the war with the Necrons.

It's true that the Tyranids have made advancements into the Empire of Octarius, to the point where they've lain siege to Octarius itself. It's still a stalemate though, but it's a stalemate that's deeper into the Ork's territory. Here's the most recent fluff. There's more in the Planetstrike codex.

You're quite right, it's one of Jes'.

I don't suppose you have one of the Lictor designs? It had a circular lamprey-like mouth filled with teeth, from which the feeder tendrils emerged in place of a tongue. The head didn't seem to have any eyes, and the mouth was ringed by four Predator-style manidbles. Always wanted to take a shot at converting something like that, but was never able to find the source to work from.

No, they aren't. A single ork is a coward; they just get overconfident when there are more orks. They're like gang-members who are pussies on their own but braver if a friend is standing near them.

Their codex states that, and even represents it rule-wise: a single ork has terrible Ld but they can use their unit size instead. Orks aren't fearless, they just act like they are to impress other orks.

That's Jes. Cirillio did his work in the early 4th edition period, Necrons were mid/late 3rd.

The Dark Eldar codex would disagree with you there. The Tau are described as being "absolutely terrified" by their wars with the Tyranids.

Yeah, they had better luck with the Necrons. I mean, the Necrons AT LEAST landed on their planet to take a look around before deciding blue bitches wasn't worth their time.

If those starving tendrils were anywhere in imperial space they would have grown into full fledged hivefleets by now.

Wut? The Tau didn't take care of the Hivefleet by themselves, they got help from the Dark Eldar, and the Imperial Guard and the Necrons.

Especially the Dark Eldar who won every battle they were involved in against the Tyranids for the Tau single handily, of course they then stole a Tau planet, but you know...

Unlikely. Eldrad foresaw that the Tau will inherit the galaxy from the imperium and accomplish greater deeds than the eldar.

The Tau have a great future ahead of them and no Ork, Tyranid, Necron ,Imperial or Chaos filthy will stop that from happening.

They just helped to deliver a bioweapon that decapitated the Hive Mind. Then they killed the Hive Tyrant Alpha to disorganize it further. It was hardly wanky.

The remainder was just the Imperial Navy cleaning up. They STILL haven't finished cleaning twelve years later.

Actually, they will.

1 Eldar Craftworld or 1 Imperial Hive City has more people than the entire Tau Empire has in population. Tau are taking their first innocent and curious steps into a galaxy that punishes that.

The Tau might go down guns blazing but it WILL be drowned in the bodies of their enemies. They simply don't have the population, manufacturing capacity to compare with any other race- shut up with your "But the tau tech is better than the Imperium's!" argument before you start it. They don't. Any Imperial world can make a lasgun, carapace armor and a Leman Russ. Those are the only 3 things needed to win for the Guard.

Until they get an equivalent to Warp travel (which they won't, the Tau have no psykers and relying on a human population for it would mean there would be 500 humans for every Tau) they will be insignificant.

Also the Tau have delt with two tyranid invasions

A smaller splinterfleet that was detected early on and destroyed at long range with no loses in a very effective missile barrage (as the nids were getting out of hibernation)

the second hive fleet, hive fleet gorgon, was much much more massive (still small for a hive fleet) and gorgon made its way through some allied alien empire before reaching tau space.

in order to save several of its planets from this hive fleet the tau made deals or relied on other alien species (the dark eldar, which saved a tau world only to raze another, or the necrons which saved a tau world only to harvest it)

the tau fought hard but lost some planets but eventually stopped the hivefleet at a major sept world with the help of some invading imperials. Unlike the necron and the blood angles however the guard aren't as ready to forgive the sin of being a xenos and immediately launched their own campaign against the tau as soon as the hive fleet was destroyed.

>Eldrad foresaw that the Tau will inherit the galaxy from the imperium and accomplish greater deeds than the eldar.

No, no, no. No he did not. Here is the exact quote.

"I have followed the myriad potential futures of the Tau with great interest. Though barely even striplings compared to us, I feel a strange protectiveness towards them. In time I believe they will exceed even our greatest feats and master the darkness within their souls."

Eldrad says he supects the Tau will achieve greater things than the Eldar ever did, and 'master the darkness within their souls', whatever that means - possibly transcending the rampant violence that was halted with the arrival of the Ethereals. No more, no less. He doesn't say the Tau will take over the galaxy, he doesn't say they'll defeat the Imperium of Man. It isn't even a genuine prophesy of the future that he's trying to bring into being; it's his suspicious as to what may happen. That's all.

"Quantity has a quality of its own"

If you really think the Imperial Guard loses you're a moron, they suffer a defeat then come back with more regiments. They specialize in attrition warfare.

'Light Casualties' on their average battle is 100,000. So yes, they lose men. All the fucking time. But they don't lose wars.
