[ERROR] No.25828602 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

So. I've been planning some Only War stuff now for a while. Didn't really like the enemies as written, so I'll have the players fight other kinds of enemies. The ones I intend to throw at them are the Tau.

While in the planning stage I however started thinking about other kinds of xenos they could face. Such as Orkz. Which led me to a kind of Eureka-moment.

Tau aren't as xenophobic as the humans are, would they be against hiring Ork mercenaries? I know they've had quite a lot of trouble with the Orkz, but would they be able to put that aside to hire some of them?

Also, what battlefield roles would the Tau assign to them?
What could the Tau pay the Orkz with to make sure they don't just turn on their employers?

>> No.25828657

What all Ork pirates want, Teef and a good krumpin not to mention loads of dakka.

Freebooters are literally Flash Gitz on steroids.

>> No.25828704

Yeah. But... Tau mostly use energy weapons.. not a lot of Dakka there. And there will not be any Teef, since the opposition are humiez and the employers are...
What's the Ork word for Tau?

And the Krumpin'? Eh. When they are out of Humiez, they'll just turn around and charge the Tau. Would the Tau try to avert this, or just count it into their plans?

>> No.25828750


Tau are notoriously manipulative. Especially with enemies they've dealt with before like the Orkz. I wouldn't be suprised if they had rifles to the Orkz backs the whole time.

Freebooters might be greedy but they're still Orkz and a good fight is a good fight. Orkz have conducted Waaaaaghs for less, like getting trophy hats.

>> No.25828756

There are also rokkits
Orkz love rokkits

>> No.25828804

Ork word for Tau is "Fish'eads"

>> No.25828828

So... The Orkz could join up with basically the promise of "We'll keep them from running away, and you can take everything they have."?

Aaand then having the "Ork High Command" followed around by drones and stealth suits to make sure they can always send a few Seeker Missiles to show why it's a bad idea to Double-cross the Tau?

Fish'eads? Good one.

>> No.25828840

>not a lot of Dakka there
War of the Dakka would call you a git. I could very well see Freebooters working for roight flash tau guns. And besides, those missile suits are right proppa orky with all those fuckin rockets going off at once.

>> No.25828856

Tau could hire Ork mercs, hell, the Imperium has hired Ork mercs and pirates before. It aint too hard, just give them something they like and promise them a fight, for what they like, usually it involves guns, lots of guns, if not, hand them a pile of scraps.

The Riptide is based off of ork tek, so tau have plenty of orkiness to them. Also, I dont know how often I have head the fishead thing. I know they call em greyskins, too.

>> No.25828926

OP, learn about the Blood Axes.

They're Ork mercenaries for hire. They tend to work for the Imperium in the fringe systems, Tau, and a variety of aliens. IG regiments will hire them when they've got nothing else around to help them in their current situation. And the Tau have been known to hire them at times. Of all the Ork clans, they're the most likely to barter, trade, or attempt diplomatic relations. They even go so far as to try to learn tactics, strategies, and uniform dress of other factions as well.

Since the Ork economy is based around Teef, and only Ork teef work, most 'payment' measures tend to take the form of equipment, vehicles, weaponry... swanky hats... etc. Exceptionally profitable campaigns tend to end up with whole Blood Axe warbands outfitted to resemble the faction they've worked with. This has led more than a few Ork fans to custom build Ork armies that 'mimic' other armies, like 'Death Korps' Orks, or 'Cadian' Orks, or 'Fer Da Greata Waaagh!' Orks.

I bet Blood Axes and Freebooters get along well. Either that or they are sworn rivals.

They even have similar tastes in hats.

>> No.25829053

Eh. According to Rogue Trader, the Freebootaz are still within the Klan-system, so... I suppose a lot of Freebootaz are Blood Axes.

>> No.25829058

Nah... think of it more like this. The Blood Axes are an actual galaxy-spanning clan, similar to the Goffs, Deathskulls, or Bad Moons. The clans tend to be a 'mindset' of sorts, and operate in their own distinct ways. Blood Axes tend to try to understand other 'not-ork kultures', and often take up mercenary work. They're distrusted by other orks, due to their dealings with other races. And ultimately, the Blood Axes are looking to further their understanding of the races they work for, with, against. And are apt to learn from them.

The Freebootas aren't technically a clan, per say. They tend to be a catch-all bunch of independents out lookin' for a fight. They're more like pirates, really. Often acting much like pirates would. They can be hired, sometimes... but are a lot less likely to bother to deal with other races. And they really love their swanky hats.

>> No.25829078

Oh, and the freebootas tend to incorporate any clans within their numbers. It's not uncommon for a small tribe of Orks to go Freeboota, and end up as a Freeboota warband filled with different clan archetypes, united under one warboss and his mad quest for the swankiest hat in the universe.

>> No.25829080

Not to derail the thread... but could a joint Ork Warband with members from two or more klans work?

>> No.25829102

pretty much every, any and all WAAAAAGHS, small and big ones have a multitude of Klans in them. There arent only the big Klans either, but myriads of smaller ones.

>> No.25829124

Also Blood Axes tend to use stealth tactics, while Freebootaz are just Ork pirates. Freebootaz will probably work for you if you give them a good reward, but they won't do it quietly (or as quiet as Orkz can be)

>> No.25829141

Oh certainly, in fact the bigger the warband, the more likely the klans will mingle.

>> No.25829148

Yes. Though infighting is bound to happen. Except particularly mighty warlords tend to have the charisma (er... direction) to unite the clans involved and aim them at a common enemy.

For instance, Goffs eschew non-Ork tech. Generally speaking... They're a no-nonsense, "beat their fucking faces in" style of clan. Full frontal assaults and bloody hand to hand combat tend to be their "master plan".

Deffskulls by contrast, are the master-looters of the Ork clans. If it's not nailed down, it's theirs after a quick re-paint (blue). And if it is nailed down, they'll be back with a crowbar. Fighting for them is more like a shopping spree, as the after-battle wreckage is their spoils. Most of their equipment and vehicles tend to be built, salvaged, or looted from whatever it is they fight.

The two clans don't get along well... Usually. As they follow separate ideologies. However a particularly powerful warlord, like Ghaz, could easily come along and get them to throw down their differences and fight against a common enemy (i.e. Armaggeddon).

>> No.25829156

To some degree...

Borderlands 2 however, is basically "Orks: The Video Game", reskinned to be humans.

>> No.25829164

I could have sworn Freebooters were called the Fifth Klan, but I think that was in DoW2 and Relic isn't exactly perfectly accurate to lore and maybe even they meant it as more of a spiritual thing, where Freebooters aren't actually a Klan, but they operate so differently from the other Klans that it warrants distinguishing them as a separate entity.

>> No.25829173

See the lower pic.

>> No.25829175

Well infighting is likely with even same klan Orks

>> No.25829183

The smaller 'klans' tend to be more along the lines of tribes, or warbands. The 'klans' themselves, are full blown ideologies of sorts that spread across the universe. Two deathskull warbands may not agree with each other, and may even fight each other. They may also never have heard of each other, and both exist on opposite ends of the galaxy. But they both follow the same ideology of lootin', thievin', and wearing lots of blue.

So do Orks have actual space ships and not just Roks? It would make Freebootas even better if a crew flew about the systems with a giant ramshack pirate ship. Or maybe converting a Rok into a giant fucking pirate ship by just welding a bunch of space ship bows to the front of the Rok

>> No.25829216

Deffskulls I feel would be most likely to side with tau other than Freebootas. Just pay them in fancy loot. And always be prepared to either keep the orks busy or put them down.

Also, I love the Loota mentality that if someone steals from them its just part of the looting cycle. They don't get mad when their stuff gets stolen. It just means they get to steal it back

Oh. Lots. Battelkroozers are among the toughest things in space.

But one of the things that beat that, are Ork Looted Hulks. THE nastiest thing in space. Thankfully, they are slow.

>> No.25829239

True. Infighting is likely even within warbands. But orks tend to rally around like-minded orks, and tend to be especially violent towards what doesn't follow their mindset. The way I always saw it, the more 'bored' an ork gets, the more excuses they'll make to throw a punch at one of their mates. Thus it's an escalation of sorts. If there's nothing to fight, the warband's a mess of infighting, and it looks for other warbands to fight. If there's suddenly an invading force, all the warbands throw down their differences to fight this common enemy. Or a powerful warlord convinces them all he can lead them to a common enemy to fight.

No... they've never been called the 'fifth klan'. Maybe the unofficial 'seventh'.

The clan list is:

-Blood Axes

And the 'not-clans' that bridge those boundaries tend to be
-Kult of Speed
-Dread warbands

>> No.25829267

It may not be the best reference, but in Winter Assault, Gorgutz starts his WAAAGH by uniting multiple ork tribes, and each of those tribes matched up with one of the four klans. There was even a vehicle centered tribe that was totally part of the Speed Kult.

Nobody 'works well' with anybody, as far as the klans go. Goffs and Bad Moonz traditionally get along well... enough... Though it's more a mutual respect as being the two more numerous or powerful clans. They still disagree on everything, and beat each other up.

Generally speaking, there's enough reason for any klan combination to fight or work with each other. Orks are easy like that. Anything goes. Want a Bad-Moon + Deathskull warband? Do it. Want a pure Blood-Axe only 'Death Korps of Waaagh'? Do it. Want a bunch of snake-sucking crazies with voodoo magic and tribal tattoos? Do it with the Snakebites. Want a 8-player Apoc game of Orks versus Orks? Makes more sense than any other Red-Vs-Red matchup.

Ehh... The whole 'ownership' or 'working for something' thing doesn't sit with the Deathskulls well enough. Blood Axes would answer the mercenary work for Tau. Deathskulls would just take the loot, run off shooting it. Take more stuff.

True, but theres major differences to the applications, if you just chain the Kroozas to the Hulk, it's a little dull, but if you stuff them into the craters and tunnels, when they launch out, they may shoot out like cannons. So it would be a giant space Hulk shooting Kroozas out like missiles

>> No.25829405

It would have all that and more.

Since we are on the topic of orky things, the Super Mario Galaxy games had a lot of things you could easily use as inspiration for an ork campaign.

And here we get a picture of the drops.

>> No.25830164

Huh, pictured it would look different, maybe a deeper hole and stalls lining it, but I guess Ork's don't rightly care about privacy when they do their business into a giant hole

The Riptide shield was reverse engineered from Orkish tech.

Imagine being the owner of an Ork apartment block

>> No.25830244

It was inspired by the Ork stompas, in much the same way as gargants were inspired by titans.

Now, the repulsor impact field, that's reverse engineered Ork tech.

I imagine that's just a small one, given how close it is to the gates. Larger ones would be larger, deeper, and with lots of fungi making a "garden".

>> No.25830254

>The drops are a social focus
So Ork communities socialize around the shit hole? Interesting to say the least

>> No.25830273

Yeah, I imagined a big cavern basically, riddled with a thick layer of...ehem, soil, and bristling with fungus of all kinds and growing orks, snotligns and squigs and a giant opening at the top to let light in and the smell out

>> No.25830296

Its actuaally not too different from Roman society. Most Romans got their small talk done at the communal shitter.

>> No.25830308

It would be interesting to see an Ork who maybe sprouted up wrong, or something just happened, and his just growing fungus over his body, maybe even some annoying snotling sprouting from his shoulder halfway

>That one Snotling clinging to an Ork's leg
That little fucker's gonna get krumpt right good if he don't watch out

Ah right, cavern, not so much, since you want to get in there.

Think of the drops as a disguisting mix of communal toilet, farm and eatery.

>> No.25830360

I hate to bring them up yet again, but the idea behind the Grotocracy for the Scraplootas was that the latent warp taint the daemon core of the looted Chaos Titan gives off fucks with the grot spores that grew on the titan. However, orks being orks they werent too affected by Chaos and the only way Could make grots more evil was to turn them into was bureaucrats.

>> No.25830362

Oh, and entertainment, as you never know when a grot or snot's going to get attacked by a squig. And dat's ded funny.

>> No.25830366

I see, well I always thought Ork's had actual farms that they grew their fungus on, but now I've learned another new thing about Orks!

>> No.25830412

Oh my god there's a dapper ork. Dapper orks are canon.

>> No.25830414

well, it's hard to farm fungi. They like nightsoil to grow on. And of course squigs grow there too.

And lets face it, what ork's going to care for proper agriculture when they can just have it all in a big pit.

(There was a dwarf fortress clone about orcs and goblins where you did have a spawning pit where new guys were born. You had your goblins drag filth there for growth purposes)

I dunno, If Orks can care about music enough to have portable players, and like art, I'd think there are some Orks who have their own little fungi garden which they tend to in their free time.

Not relyin', dat'd be mad. I'z just meanin, ya might as well 'ave dinna and a show.

>> No.25830458

Yeah, makes sense. Hell, a fungiculture inclined ork might set up his own miniature drops in his own hovel, just for a tiny garden.

Well, sometimes you can't make it to the drops in time, and if you got the room for it...

An important fact: Orks are the only race in 40k known to have funfairs.

Something like that happened in the Eye of Terror global campaign. A huge number of Ork players banded together in the Green Kroosade to take the Forge World of Mordax Prime in the Scarus sector. By the end of the campaign, Scarus had become Skarus and Mordax Prime had become MoreDakka, the gigantic Deff-Skull looted crown jewel of a burgeoning Ork empire near Cadia. It all got ret-conned to never have happened, of course, but Moredakka lives on in my heart.

Would that make him some strange version of a Weirdboy, like a Mek or a Kommando? If so, he'll start by doing basic gardening, but soon the obsession and boredom will kick in and he'll be doing something to improve it and make gardening faster/louder/more explosive.

He'd probably be a runterda. The type of oddboy (weirdboyz are psykers) who deal with all matters grot, snot and squig, which by extention includes fungus farming.

Hmm, blood axe orks occasionally nick human titles.
