Mods are awake
Post orcs

Also which is your favorite clan?
I'm partial to the no-nonsense Goffs, though the idea of being an archmilitant in RT squaring off with Snakebite Injun Warchief is pretty cool too

I like Blood Axes because they combine brute Orkiness with cunning and twisted human trappings. Garish 'camo' schemes are boss, I like that they use a lot of looted stuff, and it amuses me that they've even fought alongside Imperial forces before (in older fluff at any rate)

Blood Axe mercenaries are still very much a thing.

>In fact, most of the Blood Axes’ reputation is undeserved. True, they have made the most contact with the forces of the Imperium, occasionally fighting as mercenaries and making extensive use of Imperial war materiel, but then every Ork can see the funny side of extorting weapons from human planets only to use them against their former owners.
- Codex: Orks 4th edition

>Unforeseen alliances happen all the time in the murky world of Warhammer 40,000. The Eldar might assist the Tau in destroying a Tyranid invasion, knowing that if they don’t, the vassals of the Hive Mind will destroy a Craftworld. An Imperial Guard general might hire Orks of the Bloodaxe clan, little realising that his Chaos Space Marine enemies have already struck a similar arrangement with the selfsame greenskins. The possibilities are endless! From a gaming point of view, taking allies in your army opens up entirely new tactical possibilities, making your already formidable force even more so.

Latest Tuska fluff says that Khorne took Tuska and his Waagh! into his realm. There they fight for his amusement under his terrible gaze. When death finally takes them, they are resurrected to fight. An endless loop of carnage of mayhem with no true losers.

But there is a little detail that has been overlooked. The Orks are immortal and they keep shedding spores. In blood drenched earth of Khorne's realm, these spores are thriving.

So how long before Khorne's domain gets overrun with Orks?

Yeah, I mean an ork could rampage through an orphanage, slaughtering children and infants left and right but at the end of the day you're left with a confused and disappointed creature thinkin "Awww, them humie grots woz no fun at all". They're grimdark and yet totally innocent about it.

Its in the Codices. The whole War for Armageddon is basically Ghazzy and Yarrick playing orky grabass whilst Yarrick slowly becomes more and more orky.

I don't think Orks kill kids, there aint no fight in them. Orks aint just mindless murderers, they want a fight, if you aint a good fight, they won't bother with you. Otherwise there wouldn't be any slaves for them to work.

>> No.26741283

If an ork mistook a kid for a grot, he would be more likely to put it to work than to try to fight it.

>> No.26741295

Well Orks are built for fighting, I think they would realize at a glance that kids aint much for fightan.

Though I do find the idea of a little kid uselessly flailing his arms at some Warboss trying to protect his little siblings, the Boss just staring at the little humie, not even feeling his hits, cute.

>> No.26741320

Even if the Imperium is the main character of 40k, it feels like the people working on the Orks put a lot more effort fleshing them out than the other races, but that just might be my own bias.

>> No.26741355

I feel the same way. Granted, I haven't delved as deeply into the other factions as I have orks, but orks just feel like more love and character has been put into their race the other ones.

That said, there are some neat little tidbits scattered around the Imperium, like the Navigator houses or the Admech in general. Orks are still my favorite, though.

>> No.26741407

Now I want to write a story about the orphaned son of a catachan being adopted by a Warboss after he ran out of his hiding spot with a red bandanna tied around his forehead and stabbed the boss in the foot with a piece of rusty metal.

"Oi boss, it's wunna them hairy humie grots, can I stick it?" lusted the towering ork's shoulder gretchin, his vile tongue flickering between his pointed teeth.
"Nah, this one's right orky, 'e is, I'm keepin 'im."

wildchild sprog raised ork has some serious cute potential.

>> No.26741450

I think it's majorly because Orks don't have really any limits for their stuff. If don't own it, they build it, if they can't build it, they steal it, if they can't build it or steal it, they have a Squig for it. They are also stress free as a race, no drama or political intrigue, and no rules, so they have no restrictions for what happens. I doubt you would ever see a Bloodbowl Stadium in an Imperium city, or see Space Marines racing their bikes on a dirt track, or the Imperial Navy racing through an asteroid field, but Orks do it. They are also not heartless evil monsters. While some Bosses enslave planets and work them to the bone, others can enslave them, and not bother with them except to show up, pick up their taxes (guns, bullets, ect) and then leave, providing the planet protection from other people.
