As with its relatives, Necromunda and MordheimGorkamorka has a couple of different characters of particularly notorious repute roaming the wasteland, and sometimes they might even join a warband. Only three books for Gorkamorka were ever released; Da Roolz rulebookDa Uvver Book background fluff, scenarios, and campaign runningDigganob expanded fluff, new factions, special characters and new missionsalongside a short run of a magazine called “Gubbinz” toolz scenarios, weapons, gubbbinz for vehicles, tips to build terrain, a new faction, and a scenario to use Gorkamogka.
If Orks have a weakness at all, it can be said to be their dependence on “oddboyz” to run their mob at full strength; Spannaz keep the vehicles working, Slaverz keep the Grots who give orks a small but vital boost in income generation in line, so if either of these go down, your mob suffers a serious blow.
You can’t get these bases anymore but custom-cut plasticard bases work just as well. The fact that they ride on mutant dq instead of driving vehicles also gives them a number of other weaknesses, compared to the other mobs. A Space Hulk full of Orks crashed upon the desert world of Ad, and miraculously torkamorka to not kill themselves in the process. Though the ork mobs battling over scrap piles are certainly numerous, they aren’t the only orks out there in the desert looking for scrap.
Being too close to other orks, especially when they’re fighting, makes Nazgrub’s head hurt, which only tends to alleviate itself in a random but spectacular flare of telekinetic energy. What makes rolz ork take up the lonely, hermit-like life of the scrap prospector varies a lot.
An early demo of the Roolx version is available online. Diggas are descended from those humans who were exploring the pyramids and the caverns below; taking shelter under the planet’s surface, gorkaamorka survived the holocaust above, but descended into primitivism. The game was never released, most likely due to the Dreamcast losing support early in its life. Unfortunately, the Rebel Grots need that kind of numerical superiority to stand a chance; they have the weakest stats of all the mobs, they have to use their own vehicle types very flimsy and with very complicated movement rulestheir guns are weak, they can’t visit the Dok’s to get injuries treated, they have double the chance to run out of bullets in the middle of a fight, and roolx harder for them to earn teef to buy stuff with.
Victory and the favor of the Random Number God in your post-battle explorations is essential to survival, as a certain amount of “currency points” is spent after each scenario to represent your warband gorakmorka care of all the stuff it needs in order to survive; getting fuel, ammo, food, spare parts, medicine, etc.
Only Orks and Diggas can use most of these character, except for the Red Gobbo, who is obviously restricted to parties of the Gretchin Revolutionary Committee.
Views Read Edit View history. Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help. Diggas can be summarized as “hard mode Orks”, essentially. Though only Orks, Diggas, Rebel Grots and Muties can be played, each has its own strengths and weaknesses.
More mobile than regular Orks, but still relies gorkamorkw spanner units to take care of bikes.
Gorkamorka: Da Roolz
Due to certain little incidents, like the orkish inclination towards factionalism and a civil war that destroyed the miracle machine once they couldn’t decide whether it looked like Gork or Morkthe Orks of Angelis are ruled by their Mekboyz, who are busy working on Gorkamorka – the aforementioned miracle machine – and keep the other Orks distracted by making them fight to gather the most scrap.
Of course, since he’s working only with salvaged parts and is a bit of a loony, that’s risky, imposing a -1 penalty to the roll on The Big Day table. Besides, the Diggas happily goolz technological gear dug out from under the pyramids and scrap they have gathered for good Orky stuff and it’s funny to watch them try and be Orks, so it’s not so bad.
All that is known is that Da Krusher roams the wasteland, occasionally fighting alongside other mobs and intimidating or awestriking new mekboyz into patching up his temperamental, ever-complaining cybernetics. Being crazy but by no means stupid, Dreggutz decided to leg it whilst Snakrat’s boyz were busy scraping their boss’ remains off of the side of Gorkamorka, lest he get a first-hand demonstration of why they’d named themselves “da Twisted Nex”.
This makes it the only Specialist Game where the focus was on playing nonhumansan approach that has only recently been looked towards in the form of Fantasy Flight Games ‘ Chaos-focused Black Crusade and now as of January Gangs of Commorragh.
Aside from his super-lethal Bone Saw making him dead choppy in a fight, Dreggutz has the added bonus that the mob can use him to try and patch up their injured orks for free. This page was last modified on 1 Augustat But, like all orks, mekboyz have an independent streak, and more importantly, work on Gorkamorka is done pro bono, and so there’s a thriving “side-line” of mekaniks working on their own projects.
They have the best gear in the game, great stats, and are far less at the mercy of the random number god than other mobs, but they are also the most expensive mob – the basic trooper of a Mutie band is twice the price of gorkamoeka Orky counterpart.
Dregmek Blitzkart is one such mek; possibly cursed with the Speed Freek gene, Dregmek was always obsessed with the idea of getting orks into the air. MorkersOrks dedicate themselves to fighting and gathering scrap for fun and to secure the tags they need to be assured of being taken off to the Waaagh! Rather than using a standard circle base seen in standard Warhammer 40k, Gorkamorka used these strange egg shaped bases. There was also plans to port the game to Windows, but that also never happened.
Chaos in the Old World – Relic. Gorkers are dedicated to combat, so all of their mob members can learn Muscle skills, only Spannerz can’t learn Ferocity skills, and all of them bar Yoofs can learn Gorkamorkx skills. However, he’s so Inspiring that he offers his Leadership and a chance to recover from pinning to any friendlies within 6″, and he’s a Die-hard who can always try to shake off being pinned, even without any buddies to support him.
Come to think about it, what the zog was “Da Accident” anyway?! See, Nazgrub is something that the primitive tekno-barbarian orks of Angelis have no idea how to handle: Orks tolerate this with almost paternalistic disdain; it is, ultimately, much simpler than trying to wipe the Diggas out, especially since they have the protection of “dem fings under da pyramids”.
On the upside, their Shamans grant them access to a number of useful tricks and skills, their troops are all cheaper than Orks, and they can also pick up a number of powerful “ancient tech” devices. Diggas have forgotten all about their ancestral connections to the Imperium and have come to revere Orks as the most awesome and impressive creatures they have ever seen. Ironically, they retain more of their Imperial culture than the Diggas do, and as a result, they are dedicated to wiping out all other life on Angelis in hopes of being restored to the power and glory of their ancestors.
Addtionally, the faction mechanic actually plays a game role, as ds affects what skills you can get. Who was he before “Da Accident” that required him to be rebuilt into his monstrous new form? Somewhere between a Diggas and Imperial Guard. The latter option does give you their aid ogrkamorka a fight for free, gorkamorks if you want to make them stick around, then you gotta pay for the privilege, just as if you deliberately hired them in the first place; a “finder’s fee” of 2d6 currency points, and then they count as two models for determining expenses, due to their particular needs and tastes.
Although Gorkamorka is one of the lesser known Specialist games seriously, even when Specialist Games was still on GW’s website, it wasn’t even listed there is still a good bit of online dw for the game. Those who remained within their own ship, the now-crashed Eternal Vigilance or “Etervigila”, as the muties call itmutated into horrifically deformed beings.
Da Roolz (Gorkamorka) by Andy Chambers and Rick Priestley
As in Necromunda, a warband consists of a mandatory leader roozl some troops, with options to further pad out the warband with rookie fighters and some specialists, though what those specialists are depends on the mob in question; Ork warbands include Spannerboyz rookie Mekboyz and Slaverz, plus Gretchin as vorkamorka fodder, whilst Diggas only have Shamans and Rebel Grots only have Banna Wavers. Divided on religious lines Gorkers vs.
Nazgrub kind of fits both categories. Orks are the mainstream mob in Gorkamorka, and thusly they are the “average” by which other mobs are checked. Many mysteries surround the heavily modified cybork known only as “Da Krusher”.
