The Striking Scorpions are more orky than the Orks as Orks don't have choppy shootaz and shooty choppaz. Discuss.

>> No.27223001

This is an old fact we've all kind of discussed before, I'm afraid. It's true though.

>> No.27223873

Do you think if an ork catches a striking scorpion, he let's it go out of professional courtesy?

>> No.27224634

>implying the scorpion doesn't become his new warboss.

>> No.27224690

Consider the Chain Sabre.

It is a pair of choppas with dakka attached. Pretty orky. Now these dakka choppas fire dakka that is itself choppy. Warboss XZIBIT would be most pleased.

S'true enuff.

Do you think Orks tell scary stories about Scorpions?

>I'm telling ya Boyz, it were a ghost!
>I woz patrollin' the area when I 'erd screamin'
>Dere were blood errywhere, but I couldn't see nuffin'
>Only Bruska was left
>He just kept mumblin' about demon's dat came out of nowhere and killed just by lookin'
>Dey were gone as fast as dey came... da... da... DA DAKKAFACES.

Havin' an orky choppa or a shoota doesn't make you orky - being orky makes you orky.

>> No.27226575


But what encapsulates Orks love for dakka and choppy more than a Scorpion? They've united their love of dakka and choppy in one cunningly brutal and brutally cunning package.

Cybernetic Predato?

Pretty much.

Karandras is the Predator.

And Drazhar is the alien.

Ya know, I can totally see that with the oblong head and rib cage armour.

i find this rendition of marines very unappealing and would like to complain about it

particularly the shuriken somehow cleaving down/up through the big heavy shoulder bit top to bottom like a giant axe blade, instead of going in the front and going out the back or not penetrating at all

>> No.27228069


Lots of fluff describes shuriken fire messily lopping off entire limbs.

>> No.27228123

Just see it like silliness.

I mean, who'd try to shoot a space marine in the shoulders? You're better off aiming for the neck, or the lower torso.

>> No.27228158

You're not cutting through Space Marine limbs, black carapace, and powered ceramic armour with a shuriken. They're not that good.

>> No.27228204

They are as good as bolter shells at least.

>> No.27228222


AP2 on a 6 motherfucker! Bladestorm all day erry day.

>> No.27228315


Bolter shells don't even pierce power armor.

>> No.27228331

B-but those marines killing each other with bolters in HH books...

>> No.27228337


Yeah they're dying but they're not exploding into giblets or being torn to shreds just by bolter shells.

It's like saying a pistol bullet turns a human being into confeeti.

>> No.27228509

At first I thought you were trolling.

Then I realized you were serious.
