Waaghbands

Below are some ideas and concepts for turning modern Ork, Orruk, Orc and other kits into Gorkamorka Warbands to bring the best of modern GW miniatures to the tables of Gorkamorka

BEASTSNAGGA BOYZ

Coming mid 2021 the new Ork Beast Snagga boys make fantastic boys for Gorkamorka encapsulating the barely armoured savages of the wasteland

2021 ORK BOYZ

The new 2021 Ork Boyz represent a more techy Ork boy than the beast Snaggas, providing some fantasta shootas along with fantastic accessories

BLOODBOWL BLACK ORCS

Hulking brutes of muscle and ferocity the Bloodbowl Black Orcs make a great base for Skarboyz, repreenting Orks who have become stronger through constant fighting and risen through the ranks of the Waaghband

AGE OF SIGMAR KRULEBOYZ

Skinnier and meaner than traditional Orks the Kruleboyz are an ideal standin to the classic Yoofs of Gorkamorka, representing young orks still fighting to prove their place within a warband they survive far more on cunning than brutality

BOSSES AND BIG LADS

GOLIATH ZERKER

A simple headswap away from a Boss built of brawn and fungus juice feeding its muscles.

BLOODBOWL STAR PLAYER

Leaning into the more traditional Ork look from Warhammer Fantasy the Bloodbowl Star Players can give a wisened look of a warboss who has survived the ages with his cunning and brutality combined

NECROMUNDA WATERGUILD

The new suit from forgeworld representing the Necromunda Waterguild is a head and weapon swap away from a heavily armoured Boss who unable to make Mega Armour made the next best thing.

MEKANIZED LADZ

Thanks to suggestions on twitter the Ambots have been added to the list of kits available in modern sculpts to make some truly Mekanized Orks who have been the subject of one too many Dok's Speshuls, when hes upgraded so much of the Ork that little remains.

The heavy industrial look of the ambot blends well with the core Ork aesthetic, with the weaponry suitably brutal in appearance that the right paint job and minimal conversions can blend seamlessly into your Warband.

TECH BOYZ

Ork "Innovations" are bewildering, unwieldy and often a little bit insane, and the new 'Jotunn' H-Grade Industrial Servitor Ogryns from Necromunda fit that aesthetic in a beautiful way. Chunky, robust, relatively "basic" tech for the 41st millenium on a frame that is begging for a more hunched pose and Ork head means you're never far from a heavily upgraded Skarboy
