Ork Week: The Final Part - Gork and Mork! Or Mork and Gork!



So as Ork week comes to a close and I'm suffering from Ork (Read: man) Flu I'd thought I'd share an article about the Ork Gods. What better way to end a week dedicated to them.


Gork and Mork are the Gods of the Orks, the fathers of the WAAAGH! and all round thugz. Gork is brutal but kunnin' and Mork is kunnin' but brutal, what more is there to say? Look at them wrong and they'll kick yer teef in.

Whilst Gork smashes you over the head with his huge spiked club Mork will give you a staggering low blow, demonstrating the kunnin-ness and brutality of the Orkish Gods.
Ork Stompas and Gargants are built in honour (and possibly in the likeness of) the two mighty Greenskin Gods. The Mekboyz who build them work from a vision held within their imagination that they believe has been sent to them by Gork and Mork, usually inspired during the onset of a new WAAAGH!.



The Orks believe that Gork and Mork are personal Gods; i.e. they will offer divine aid to those Orks who ask for it, if they are found deserving, but it does not matter which of the two Gods an Ork prays to, since they are essentially interchangeable. However, if a distinction were to be made, it could be said that Gork is the favoured God of the average Greenskin as the manifestation of the physical power that defines the Orks, while Mork is the favoured deity of the Oddboyz, the cunning Orks who do more than just fight to keep the Ork species moving forward to the next battle.

The greatest of the Ork Warlords, Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka, the Ork who unleashed both the Second War for Armageddon and the even more brutal Third War for Armageddon, is currently considered the Prophet of Gork and Mork. Ghazghkull and his Orks believe that the twin Gods provide him with the information to unleash strategies that will finally give the Orks victory over the Imperium and all their enemies--which basically includes every other thinking being in the Milky Way Galaxy.


And so ends a fantastic Ork Week, good job to everyone which took part and I hope you had fun playing with your Nobz.
