browsed around the site a bit, you may be thinking that
I'm a bit of an Ork fanatic. My response to that? Guilty
as charged. I have chosen the Orks
as a theme for my website because,
simply put, Orks are the best army in the 40k universe,
it just took me a while to remember it...
A long time ago...
Set the wayback machine for 1987. I
was a young lad (still in high school) and managed to get
my hands on the first edition of the 40k game, known to
most of us old time gamers as Rogue
Trader. The rules were suited to 'skirmish' level games
compared to the larger games played today.
Shortly after that came the first boxed
set of plastic Space Marines and the first boxed set of
Space Orks. "Thrugg Bullneck's Space Ork Raiders"
was a box of 16 metal Ork figures. While some of the sculpts
were fairly primitive by today's standards, they still had
a lot more character than the old "beakie" Space
Marines in my opinion.
