chaos orks?

could this even happen?

>> No.18187542

I think so, but it would be pretty rare

>> No.18187552

nope. Just like space wolves can't fall because of the WOLF OF THEIR SOUL, orks can't fall because of the ORKS OF THEIR SOUL. Gork and Mork are too powerful in their minds for anything else.

>> No.18187566

Nope. Because orks believe their own gods are stronger than chaos gods. And since there are no chaos orks as of yet, it looks like they cant be convinced.

So, no chaos orks. Ever.

>> No.18187567

except space wolves have fallen

Skyrar ring a bell?

>> No.18187572

well, some old fluff says it do (there's even khorne stormboyz in 40K) but they generally get crumped by the other orcs when they mutate. there's also genstealer hybrid orcs.. so..

in old WHFantasy anything could pretty much mutate (except ogres and haflings), but mutant orcs never come up much (maybe the metal orcs of bretonnian fame are such ones) at all now a days.

>> No.18187576

Yes, it's canon.

Orks seem most likely to fall to Khorne (although I'd say Nurgle, who is the biggest and greenest). Also, there's official artwork of Nurgle Orks.

Next question?

>> No.18187586


They do fall, actually. In fluff that hasn't been retconned most Orks that go through their Stormboy phase also go through a Khornate phase because to Orks Khorne is a god of martial honor and respect. It's pretty much the Ork equivalent to going Goth to piss off your parents.

All that proves is that wolves < orks

>> No.18187592

Chaos is seen as un-Orky. Engaging in the worship of a god just takes too much thought and energy, considering they glorify Gork and Mork just by being Orks.
It has happened, of course.
When Stormboyz were introduced (back when they wore SS uniforms) they ALL worshiped Khorne in his aspect of martial discipline and prowess. Yes, the Orks became less chaotic by worshiping a Chaos God.

Usually, if an Ork runs into another Ork that is all warpy and mutating, he'll probably just smash him (or try, at least), if only 'cause 'e wus actin' funny.

The Goff and Snakebite clan would have something to say about Chaos Orks.

Blood Axe and Bad Moon however are not nearly as puritan and you got all the Ork Freebootaz and mercs.

Some Orks are religious. Some Orks just want a good laugh. Some Orks want both. But Orks are not a hive mind.

>> No.18187632

I'd imagine nurgle and Khorne Ork's not standing out (StinkBoyz&RedBoyz), the true explanation is though that Chaos can't encroach on Gorm&Mork's turf the power of the Waagh stops Chaos and Demonic influence in it's tracks as it's own litle gellarfield, just as prayer usually stops Demonic presence near Sisters.

>> No.18187663

It does happen, it's canon.

Some Orks fall to chaos, some Orks are infected by genestealers too. But it's a lot harder to convince other Orks to go along with it, so they tend to be stamped out before they can spread the corruption.

The early rules/fluff for Orks (circa 1e/2e) stated in no uncertain terms that the average Ork sees Chaos as un-Okry and that they will usually just attack them on sight.
However, a big part of this is just that Orks love to fight, and find the idea of fighting Orks that don't fight like Orks to be a delightful novelty.

>In M36 the then-Cardinal of Thracian Primaris, Miriamulus the Elder, recorded a history of the 'Legion of Ouroboris' that plagued the Helican sector at an earlier age. The legion was described as being of "winged entities aflame with infernal ague" that descended from the heavens and ravaged the countryside, stripping it of life. Though easily mistaken for a Chaos incursion at first glance, a deeper reading reveals details of attacks by monsters "vomited from the bellies of great beasts which clouded the stars with their numbers".

>An analysis of the Warlord Titan 'Mechanica Cranus', a cited veteran of the Ouroboris Wars, reveals distinctive bio-plasma scarring and pyro-acid burns consistent with Tyranid weapons. It is believed the Space Wolves also have trophies of Tyranid-like bio-forms dating from this epoch, including the so-called Kraken's Egg. The Cardinal attributes the Emperor himself with leading a crusade that caused the Beasts of Ouroboris to fall upon themselves, culminating in a mighty twelve day battle over a warp rift dangerously close to the Eye of Terror. However, augur-dating techniques place Cranus' battle damage as occurring post-Heresy, making the Emperor's embodied presence extremely unlikely.

>It is theorised that some Tyranids were drawn ahead of the other fleets by treacherous Warp currents and deposited at the Eye of Terror. This could explain the presence of Tyranid splinter fleets in Segmentums other than Tempestus. Such creatures must have undergone extreme temporal distortion, mutation and cannibalism en route. The postulation that they deliberately navigated warp rifts for this purpose is currently given no credence.

>> No.18187782

I'm not sure how canon it is, but in the second (?) Space Wolves novel they run into some Nurglitte Tyranids on a space hulk.

Evidently, the hulk was filled to brim with lesser 'nids, mostly gaunts and the like, with few (if any) synapse critters. Unfortunately for them, a very powerful Nurgle artifact was on board, and the 'nids accidentally made their nest in the same area.
After a couple decades, the hive mind was overwritten with the influence of Nurgle.

It made the bugs a bit tougher, but much slower.

There also used to be Genestealer cults of Khorne.

>> No.18187801

Yeah, trouble is, the second the Hive mind notices them it's going to treats them like an infection that needs to be burned it out, lest it make your arm drop off. Kind of like Orks really.

I guess the cool thing about Genestealer cults is that they mostly don't care what religion they have to worship, or deeds they have to commit, as long as the brood does well. If they can find a way to win over local populations and induce them into their brood without violence they snap it up.

Would be interesting to see Genestealer cults running brothels and prostituation really. The Genestealer cults will do anything to pass on the Genestealer kiss... like that perversion they made of the Tau bonding rite.

Genestealer cults were always fun in that way. They are that creepy cult down that road that helps out with community projects. Nobody seems to know much about their inner works but even the most bad ass hard case scumbags who have joined the cult seem to be rehabilitated into friendly hard working citizens.

To be fair Chaos cults tend to spring up on the back of "down and out who want easy money, reward whores and edgy teenagers who don't like going to temple. It's kind of like all the "santanists" and "vampires" you get in college.
Chaos cultists are the higher grade of gothkid who has infact read the lesser keys of soloman and isn't just spouting the crap they saw on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Purestrain genestealers in a cult inherently fear the coming of the Hive Fleet because they know it will devour them, as well. This fear was intentionally bred into them so that they will do everything in their power to scatter and flee offworld when the Fleet gets close.
That way, they can start new cults on new worlds after finishing the job on the one currently getting eaten.

The hybrids and converts are 'programmed' to welcome and long for the Fleet, so that they will joyfully march into the spawning pools when they finally arrive. Saves time and resources.
