The Loop Games Do you like this video? Azhag the Slaughterer is one of the most infamous Orcish Warlords in recent history. He has brought a trail of ruin and destruction to the northern lands of the Old World , laying waste to cities, fortresses and mountain strongholds wherever he goes. Atop his head lies the key to his power and uncommon intelligence in tactics and warfare - an ominous iron crown which emanates an ancient evil long thought forgotten from history. It is from this crown, a relic of olden days, which granted Azhag sorcerous powers and gave him the vision he needed to command a Waaagh! The ominous crown, known in ancient times as the Crown of Sorcery , would constantly whisper into the primitive mind of the Orc Warlord, telling him of a grand conquest that lies to the south, of a great plan that needed to be fulfilled.

Gorbad Ironclaw[ edit ] Gorbad Ironclaw, atop his vicious boar Gnarla, was the mightiest Warlord that ever lived in the warhammer fantasy universe. Gorbad Ironclaw and his tribe, the Ironclaw Orcs, absorbed the Broken Tooth tribe along with the local Goblin and Night Goblin tribes, to create a massive force of Greenskin warriors.
At the fortress of Altdorf, the Waaagh! Gorbad unleashed Wyverns upon the city, who threw the defenders into disarray but were ultimately repelled without achieving their main objective, which was to destroy the city gates. It is not known if Gorbad survived the encounter.
The power of the Crown allowed Azhag to destroy the rival Warbosses and ensure the loyalty of his followers. Prior to battle, Azhag would lay out his plan of attack, speaking in a decidedly un-Orcy voice heavy with the weight of centuries, then bellow at his ladz to get moving. Without his tactical mind and force of will to lead them, the Orcs that had followed Azhag fled into the forests and hills of Ostland.
As for the Crown of Sorcery, after much debate between those who wanted it preserved and studied, and those who wanted it destroyed so its evil could pose no more threat, the Grand Theogonist took it back to Altdorf and sealed it in the Imperial Vaults, where it would remain for all eternity.
He leads tribes of vicious Orcs to lay waste all across the Old World. His personal bodyguard of Black Orcs are known as "Da Immortulz" and they are almost as dangerous as he is. Grimgor is a fearsome fighter who can inflict enormous casualties upon opposing units.
Here he slaughters vast numbers of Skaven, who are constantly trying to take the keep from the Greenskins. Unknown to Grimgor he has often got close to the Skaven area known as "Hell Pit", where the Skaven carry out their twisted experiments. Grimgor leaves the tunnels when he tires of killing Skaven, but invariably returns for another "rest" when the urge to explore and kill reasserts itself. Units[ edit ] A Goblin Orcs are large creatures with long arms and short legs, huge slabs of muscle move under tough green skin, and their jaws are lined with vicious fangs that jut out from their underbite.
They have beady red eyes, a generally foul demeanor, and are naturally bald. Normally six feet tall, they are up to seven feet tall when stretched out of their characteristic stoop. They respect power and strength, and naturally tend towards becoming bigger and stronger as they rise through their society. While they lack the education of more advanced races, Orcs possess immense cunning and are quick learners, but rarely adopt new tactics to replace their fondness for close quarters brutality.
Goblins are much smaller and skinnier than the Orcs and have long, pointed noses. They are between 4 and 5 feet high, seldom reaching the height of a man. Goblins are more common than orcs, and deceitful to a fault. They prefer attacking their opponents in the back or from a safe distance. When pressed into battle Goblins seek safety in numbers, attacking in large mobs.
They are afraid of Elves because they "stink funny. They are far less intelligent than goblins and can do little except in imitation of others. They congregate on the edges of greenskin villages, hunting and being hunted by squigs , although they are often too terrified to approach these strange creatures.
Gnoblars were not well known to the Old World until expeditions from the Ogre Kingdoms became commonplace. They serve as "pets" who are used to scavenge battlefields and carry luggage.
Gnoblars are between normal goblins and snotlings in size and hence hierarchy.

On Orcyness[ edit ] Straight outta da Badlands , green, swole and ready ta roll! The race generally speaks in a Cockney a type of British accent yes the lime-men come in different types. They incorporate things from football soccer hooligans as well, since during the time that Warhammer was first created there was something of social unrest as soccer matches often devolved into very violent fights. Just as soccer fans are prone to strange practices like wearing specific clothing the day their team plays to assigning particular meanings to colors and designs, Orcs follow suit. Any time Orcs get lines of speech, their words are spelled in heavy-handed parodies of their accent. Unlike 40k, Fantasy greenskins are far more diverse in origin, some even being capable of sexual reproduction maybe.
Warhammer/Tactics/8th Edition/Orcs & Goblins
Lore of Fire Lore of Beasts While at least some of the eight main lores can be used by many armies of the Warhammer world many races have their own unique magical Lores. The most significant changes which ensure incompatibility between editions have been made to the magic, army composition systems, and specialist troop types. The starter armies in the box sets have gradually grown more detailed with each succeeding generation, and the 7th edition was the first to be titled as a scenario "The Battle for Skull Pass" instead of just Warhammer Fantasy Battle. Of the High Elves which have appeared in the 4th edition and 8th edition , while the 4th edition only contained Spearmen and Bowmen figures essentially, just two types of figurines plus a cardboard cutout for the general,  the 8th edition contains a more widely varied army including cavalry, Sword Masters, mage, and a general mounted on a griffon. Reaper is more a skirmish game for up to 30 miniatures rather than a large-scale wargame.

Named Characters[ edit ] Note: Under the current edition, named characters tend to be overpriced; you can pretty easily emulate most named as wholes from scratch and save yourself some points. That said, a few named characters do have abilities and wargear or wargear combos unique to them, so if you absolutely need to have them, go ahead. He also counts as both your general AND battle standard bearer, which is both a bonus and a curse. His only disadvantage is his high point cost coming in at almost points! Him being both the general and the BSB is sometimes terrible. If he breaks from combat he automatically dies, because the BSB stands his ground defending the banner and is killed.
