Amid constant, seething tides of war and bloodshed, burgeoning greenskin empires rise and fall. Numerous beyond belief and driven always to fight and conquer, the Orks threaten to overwhelm every single galactic empire, stronghold and race. While their thirst for battle has always proved their downfall, causing brutal infighting that keeps them from crushing all opposition, occasionally a great leader rises who is capable of unifying the squabbling tribes, and soon a Waaagh! is underway – partially a migration, partially a holy war. When the Orks are on the rampage, the galaxy trembles – and in these dark times, more Waaaghs! are rising than ever before.
 
Codex: Orks contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Orks collectors. Within this 136-page hardback, you’ll find:
 
- The Barbarous Hordes: the history, motivations and beliefs of the Orks – a race that has avoided the angst-ridden trappings of other, more philosophical creatures by simply drawing contentment from hitting everything.
- The Green Menace: an overview of Ork society and ecology, theories on exactly how their numbers increase so quickly and details of their hangers-on – the Gretchin and Snotlings who perform menial tasks in exchange for protection.
- Greenskin Kultur: detailing Ork hierarchy, their excellence in warfare and their desire for speed and dakka, this section demonstrates the Ork way of life.
- The Ork Gods: Gork (brutal but kunnin’) and Mork (kunnin’ but brutal), gods honoured by destruction, and evoked by huge armoured war-suits designed to smash stuff up.
- Details of Ork tribes and clans, with descriptions, background and heraldry for the following: Goffs, Evil Sunz, Blood Axes, Deathskulls, Bad Moons, Snakebites, and Freebooterz.
- A selection of Ork glyphs – a list of pictorials and their meanings to help you kustomise your own Ork collection.
- Gathering the Waaagh!: war on an apocalyptic scale, Waaaghs! can swallow entire civilisations whole, gathering strength and size with every shot fired and every punch thrown. This section explains how they spontaneously erupt around particularly strong leaders.
- A galactic map showing the drastic greenskin expansion, with enormous Waaaghs! picked out in an appropriately green hue.
- A timeline of major events and battle in Ork history.
- Background on each unit available to an Ork army.
- A showcase of beautifully painted Citadel miniatures, with example armies featuring everything from individual images of models to battle scenes on terrain.

  • Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy

    Often seen muscling their way through their fellow Speed Freeks as they roar toward the front lines, Rukkatrukk Squigbuggies employ living close-range artillery to wreak havoc amongst the enemy ranks. They launch a variety of squiggly beasts at the hapless foe: bitey squigs, which latch on to the first thing they hit and don’t stop chewing until they are bludgeoned to death; bile squigs which squirt, spray or vomit a variety of hilariously harmful fluids in every direction; and boom squigs that explode violently at the first sign of provocation, ostensibly to ‘warn off predators’. These are hurled out via squig launchas, which are tossed about between crew members in order to quickly deliver the perfect squig – the squealing, thrashing and booming audible over the Squigbuggy’s throaty roar.
     
    This multipart plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy. Notably rugged in construction for an Ork vehicle – while still bearing the ramshackle hallmarks of a machine built by Meks with more hammers than sense – the Squigbuggy is a flatbed truck with a long, wide wheelbase, which allows it to zoom over rough terrain mostly without flipping over disastrously. The flatbed itself contains a squig pen overflowing with all manner of bitey, bile and boom squigs, overseen by a grot (who, honestly, is having a pretty hard time keeping the squigs under control). A large Ork balances precariously by the pen, stuffing a squig into the heavy squig launcher he’s wrestling into position. Below the flatbed are 2 fuel tanks – not especially well protected from impact – and a set of saw blades either side, perfect for shredding tyres and enemies. In the cockpit, which is effectively just a few bits of scaffold over a steering wheel, sit the driver and another crew member. Both are covered in the bite marks, scratches and scars that come with a career in squig-wrangling, with the Ork riding shotgun leaning hard on the firing mechanism of his squig launcha. At the front, the Squigbuggy features a huge toothed maw in lieu of a grill – this is rounded off nicely by a spiky ram. 
     
    This kit comes as 61 components and is supplied with a Citadel 150mm Oval base.

  • Megatrakk Scrapjet

    A favourite amongst Speed Freeks and grounded Flyboyz alike, Megatrakk Scrapjets provide rocket-propelled acceleration, impressive firepower and the hilarity of ramming into enemy lines at the helm of what is effectively a gigantic, thrust-driven drill. These vehicles allow former Ork pilots to revel in the dimly-remembered joy of mowing down enemies at point-blank range – a joy which, of course, often caused the Flyboy to crash in the first place. Explosions blossom amidst the enemy as rokkits and missiles collide with their targets, while Grot tail-gunners blaze away with chattering big shootas – the array of weaponry welded, bolted, riveted and lashed onto a Megatrakk Scrapjet is fearsome.
     
    This multipart plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Megatrakk Scrapjet. Built around the fuselage of a downed Ork aircraft, the Scrapjet is pretty much a metal tube covered in things that make enemies die – a front-mounted rokkit kannon (with belt-fed rokkits!), missiles which can be modelled mid-launch, a drill attached to the front turbine with accompanying spiked rams, a twin big shoota at the front and another twin big shoota crewed by a Grot rear gunner. While the wings have been broken off in whatever terrible accident grounded the Scrapjet, it’s still covered in fins and ailerons – after all, they look cool, and that’s what being a Flyboy is all about! The pilot himself is decked out in a flight jacket, goggles and a long scarf billowing out behind him, seated in a cockpit full of instruments (which he is, of course, ignoring). The Scrapjet is propelled by a huge jet exhaust at the back, which pushes the vehicle along via the tracked wheels attached to the rear.
     
    This kit comes as 65 components and is supplied with a Citadel 150mm Oval base.

  • Deffkilla Wartrike

    Fast-moving fighting platforms, Deffkilla Wartrikes make little concession to armoured protection for their riders. Scythe-wheeled, with an enormous rokkit engine afterburner on the back, these trikes not only move at a frankly vulgar pace but also pack enough firepower to make them extra killy. There’s no escaping the crew of a Deffkilla Wartrike – while Speedboss and driver alike are completely exposed to enemy fire, they’re quite happy to prove how tough they are by simply ploughing headlong into the biggest enemy formation they can find. Who wants to be seen cowering behind armour when there’s a fight to be had?
     
    This multipart plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Deffkilla Wartrike. Crewed by 2 enormous Orks – a driver and Speedboss – it sits low and long, its massive engine housed between the serrated rear wheels for maximum torque (and maximum flame-belching). Both driver and Speedboss are staring intently to their left, targeting an unfortunate enemy with their gaze – the driver wields a twin boomstikk that’s longer than his arm, and the Speedboss is waving a grappling hook-equipped snagga klaw. At the rear, a fuel-mixa Grot stands ready to add whatever dangerous chemicals he can to the tank with the air intakes on either side designed to resemble an Orkish maw.
     
    This kit comes as 78 components and is supplied with a Citadel 150mm Oval base.

  • Boomdakka Snazzwagon

    Boomdakka Snazzwagon is a multipart plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Boomdakka Snazzwagon. Designed for pure speed, it eschews the usual Orky technique of nailing every single bit of metal in the area to a vehicle – you have the option of assembling it without even the roof, exposing the roll cage. Attached to the frame is a network of exhausts and intakes that feed the enormous, powerful engine mounted in the front. As well as this engine, the front of the Snazzwagon features a massive dozer blade, with a masked Grot tightly strapped on – as if that weren’t enough manic detail, there’s a mek speshul mounted to the left side of the main air intake. The driver is leaning out of the right-hand side, leering ahead with a burna bottle ready to go, while riding shotgun is another Grot, this one waving a blasta. A bellowing Burna Boy balances on the back, burna bottle in one hand and the trigger of a big shoota in the other. This kit comes as 65 components and is supplied with a Citadel 170mm Oval base.

  • Mekboy Workshop

    Mekboy Workshop is a multipart plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Mekboy Workshop. Constructed from metal beams which the industrious Mekboy has salvaged from the clamour of battle around him, the Workshop features a large workbench covered in the gubbinz of his craft – a wall-mounted toolset, an enormous drill, a box of spanners and a vice – and a ton of spare parts. A kustom force field generator, bits of steering wheel, buzzsaw blades; it might look like a random assortment, but the Mekboy who owns it knows exactly where each piece he needs is. A reinforced beam is attached to this workspace at a right angle – a large engine block is hanging from a length of chain, ready for repair or installation, with a large grabbin’ klaw which can be modelled facing in any direction you like. Included are 3 barricades and 3 piles of scrap, which can be placed around the Workshop in any way you like, and the whole kit is compatible with the STC Ryza-pattern Ruins set – build your own kustom sprawling mess! This kit is supplied as 36 components.

  • Primaris Invictor Tactical Warsuit

    The Invictor Tactical Warsuit is a stripped-back variant on the Redemptor Dreadnought frame. Instead of a revenant hero in a sarcophagus, this combat walker is piloted by a live Primaris Space Marine. They are deployed in every capacity, from armoured escort duties to close-range siege breaking and urban monster-hunts. Still the most iconic role for these walkers is as the armoured support for Vanguard Space Marines. Their combination of mid- to close-range firepower, armoured resilience and the selfless mindset of the pilot combine to provide exceptional support.

    Like many of the Primaris Vanguard units, an Invictor Tactical Warsuit has the ability to deploy in a concealed position outside of your own deployment zone, giving it a unique advantage over any Dreadnought-class vehicle in the Space Marines armoury. It has a potent choice of weaponry – if it’s ranged fire support you're after, its twin ironhail autocannon has you covered; if you're looking to engage the enemy up close and personal, it can instead be armed with an incendium cannon. It also carries a heavy bolter that it can wield as a pistol to fire at point-blank range in melee, even as it crushes enemies with its formidable Invictor fist.

    This multipart plastic model comes in 116 components and is supplied with a Citadel 90mm Round Base and an Ultramarines Vehicle Transfer Sheet. You'll find the full rules for the Invictor Tactical Warsuit in Codex: Space Marines. The Invictor Tactical Warsuit can also be used in Dark Angels, Space Wolves and Blood Angels armies via a free PDF rules download, available from Warhammer-Community.com.
