Are Orks an actual threat?

In all the fluff I've read and what people talk about they seem to be the intergalactic irritant of every race but not really a bane or an actual powerhouse.

I think Space Marine was the first bit of media to actually show the orks as a threat.

Before the ultramarines show up, the orks fucking OWN that planet. It had full Imperial Guard, now down to just a few survivors trying not to get eaten.


Then, as always, they switched to Chaos BECAUSE WOULDN'T THAT BE COOLER GUIZE!

>> No.22349997

The Beast (A Legendary Orkish Warboss) nearly conquered the entire galaxy with his extremely huge Waaaagh.

Ghazghkull Thraka, the Prophet of Gork and Mork, is uniting the Orkish clans and plans on launching the greatest Waaagh ever and conquer all the galaxy in the name of the Gods.

The Orks are a threat but the problem is that their method of travel sucks and stops them from uniting their forces and rival the might of the Imperium. It takes an exceptional Warbosses to turn the Orks to gakatic wide menace.

>> No.22349999

Orks are sometimes portrayed as dumbly aggressive and disorganized. However, played the right way, this is actually an advantage. Dumbly aggressive means they just won't quit, even if they get blasted into hamburger. Disorganized makes them very hard to predict. So hard, that its arguable that battle computers may not be able to predict their actions correctly 100% of the time, and may also predict their actions wrongly outright on occasions. The way I see a WAAAGH of orks is basically like a sea of locusts. They rapidly consume resources, burning through fuels and minerals fast and hunting down life forms and eating them, whether their edible or not, in roving huge mobs. Can you imagine the sheer destructive horror of a group of orks descending onto your planet? Ecology: totaled, bio-mass: cut by significant fraction. Economy: dependent on victory or defeat of defenders. Note that I know very little about the actual warhammer 40k mechanics, but I have read bits and pieces of the lore, so this is not an 'official' lore-based interpretation of them, though I still think it to be a good one.

From what I've read on Orks so far, it seems like this is the layout of your average WAAAGH.
1. Organize orks
2. cram orks onto single Space Hulk
3. launch space hulk into outer space
4. remove steering apparatus and use it for more entertaining purposes
5. crash on planet
6. kill everything that orky
7. repeat until the Imperium stops you

oks technology works on common belief.
That's why red cars go faster and they can shove whatever ammo they want into most of their guns.

So if they take it apart, they ARE going to put something back together with it. It might not be what it originally was. It might even be shooting laser blasts now, just because they wires were pulled out of it and rearranged.

The orks' threat is once they have a foothold you can never really get rid of them and it doesn't take much at all for them to set up. In the looooooooonnnnnng game they might chip away enough to be "winning" but they're never really "losing", especially not with their perspective on war. On the other hand they might just stomp the planet flat and keep moving until they're really stuck in somewhere. See Armageddon for probably the biggest example of how things go with Orks.

Most days they're a threat on a planetary/system level. They can pose a threat that a planet/system will find threatening, but not a sub-sector.

In a way I guess. Although, "won" is something that probably doesn't make sense for chaos. Chaos doesn't want or need to win. If I remember correctly they're only pretty much concerned with being supplied with whatever emotion fuels them. It's weird, the same way I wouldn't say emotions like "hate" "fear" "lust" or "ambition" won, I wouldn't say their physical (psychic?) manifestations won either.

The waaagh! effect is grease, for the actual engineering ability of the mekboyz. That said, mekboyz tend not to be ones for planning, etc. and without the grease of the waaagh! effect, most things are unreliable at best and downright dangerous to use at worst (although often even with the waaagh! effect much ork tek is dangerous to the user thanks to "safety" being regarded as a soft sort of thought).

I don't think the chaos gods are particularly concerned about killing the emperor, that's more of a goal that the renegade space marines chapters have. IIRC the Chaos Space marines sometimes have different or even conflicting goals with the chaos gods.

The lore throws around some heavy ass shit about myth, gods, etc. I know that the emperor was a hardcore materialist atheist, as in he didn't believe in gods, but he could understand the ultra powerful beings resided in the warp. But that wasn't necessarily godhood.

Apparently this whole notion offended the Word Bearers Primarch, who worshiped the emperor, and wrote the scripture that's used in 40k by the church. All the other legions are looking to resolve ancient grudges in a similar manner. It's kinda hard to say who's leading who when it comes to the renegade chapters and the chaos "gods".

Nothing ever changes in 40k.
No race actually changes anything ever. Although I would venture a guess that Orks and Nids get to be whipping boys more often than other armies along with the Guard maybe.

If someone needs to job it's usually them that get to do it.

Like all the other races though, the way it works is they don't really operate to their full potential without unusually good leadership.

This allows the player to project himself onto the setting as the really good leadership.

So like, in the Ork case, especially stupid Warbosses or mobs without actual Warbosses present are mere fodder. But the Players army is not because it's got a Badass, surprisingly cunning leader, whose triumph you vicariously experience through 40k.

But if you want an example of Orks getting out of hand, look at Armageddon. Sure that's a sttalemate, but only because resources are continually poured into it. Sometimes, the Orks make temporary headway through the million monkeys hammering at a type writer strategem of sheer luck and persistence.

Either way the whole system is a massive bleeding sore and drain on resources that could be used elsewhere, both from local sources, and from other places diverted to Armageddon.

The Orks aren't interested in ruling or exterminating everyone else. They just really like fighting. To that end, the Orks have already won forever. They are having fun, they rule whole worlds, and, when they do manage to set themselves to any goal, they usually win.

Given that Orks appear to reincarnate, at least according to their own beliefs, I can see why they're happy to go on like that. Try playing PlanetSide 2 and imagining yourself as an Ork; there's no real victory, the only reason to fight is for more dakka, and if you die, you get to come around for another go. For everyone else, who isn't more or less impervious to pain or unafraid of death or what have you, that shit is terrifying, but... Well, for you? It's a game.

This is an important point. Orks may or may not be a "powerhouse" in comparison to other races; they may or may not be on their way to ownership of the galaxy. But they are happy, and whenever they try to fight and kill non-orks they are pushing toward a future in which there is nothing but orks--that is, a future in which EVERYONE IS HAPPY. And everybody else resists this. So whatever else orks are, they're the good guys, and any group of whom this can't be said is on the bad guys' side.
