» Bark Squig-Grin's Dakka Ladz
Close to the galactic core lies the binary star system Alceroin. It's only planet Alceroin I orbit close to the parent star Alceroin Proxima and is covered by a vast ocean. Just 7% of the surface is dry land and it's continent is little more than a ragged wasteland of rocky deserts, sharp cliffs and deep gorges.

But Alceroin I's appearance belies it's worth. The Imperium uses the vast ocean to export water to nearby agri and hive worlds but it's most valued asset is a endemic plant which sap is refined into Promethium and is therefor cultivated on a large scale. The Alceroin system also has huge astroidfields with abundant ores and minerals which are extracted from spaceborne miningfacilities. All this is cared for from Alceroin I's main city and spaceport, Port Von Stohr, and the deserts across the continent have seen battle on untold occasions.

By blind chance Bark Squig-Grins spacehulk exited the warp inside the system and was bombarded by astroids until it slowly crashed into Alceroin I's ocean. Most of the tribe drowned but few enough made it ashore. Since Alceroin is littered with battle debries, the tribe's meks have done what they can to restore and use what their comrades scavange. Soon enough, Bark hope to go on full assult against da humies on da otha side. Once the promethium and water stops flowing off Alceroin, he hopes that his tribe can expect a proppa fight.

The tribes pink/purple colour scheme is a result of the limited ways of producing dyes and paints on Alceroin. Only two ways has been presented. At first the tribe coloured everything with the sap from the wild plants of Alceroin. This gave the tribe a brown/black apperance but also made itself clear at the very first summer when much of the clan perished to self-ignition in the intense sunshine. Soon enough the they found that the dried fruits of the plants made a non-flameble dye. Though pink at first it matures to dark purple given enough time. They orks hordes the dye and everyone keeps their own pot and guards in fiercly against everyone. Who would like to charge forward all dressed up in pink? This has made a second way of telling how high in the hierarchy an ork is within the tribe. The longer he has been able to hold on to the same pot of dye, the more purple his clothing is, and the higher in the hierarchy he is. This also explains the uniforme look to the tribe while still consisting of different klans.

Bark Squig-Grin
According to Bark himself he was born in a Squig-pen during a great cosmic catalysm that Gork and Mork threw in his honour. Bark was though small for an ork at first and with his unusual broad jaw, the gretchins and snotlings that tended his pen didn't notice him among the squigs at first. Some weeks later he had eaten enough snotlings and battered enough squigs to break through the gates to his pen. Along with the squigs he ran amok among the snotling village and killed most of them. Bark was welcomed into the ranks of the boys and was given the name Squig-Grin.

Bark rise to power went fast during a raid on a neighboring tribe. At the time he had slowly risen to command his own mob of boyz and had through threats been gifted a trukk from a mek station. During a great battle he had commanded his trukk into a collision with the opposing tribes battlewagon. Accident or not Bark was flung from the trukk and manage to swing his big choppa, mid air, into the face of the other tribe's Big Boss. After the battle he was honoured to serve among the scarboyz of the Warboss himself.

Soon after the battle the opposing tribe tried to take revange by assulting Barks tribe at their camp. During this fight the Warboss led his scarboyz into the fray and in the chaos that ensued only Bark came out standing. He then claimed the title of Warboss and in a mere year he had united all the tribes of his homeplanet.

Two decades later a Waagh! emerged in his home system which he joined without hesitation. In the cargoholds of a great spacehulk Bark and his tribes soon grew restless and soon they broke from the holds and took control of the whole hulk. In the wake of this mutiny the hulk was thrown offcorse in the warp and ended up in the Alceroin system.

This army is on constant build and the converting part is why I do it. It complement my Eldar painting very well and keep me in the hobby. My tribe has it's own colour scheme with a few exceptions. The part that brings the dakka is mostly Bad Moon orks and the Feral Ladz have more brown on them since they have joined the tribe post-crash.

I have for a long time longed to begin the construction on sumthin' big for my orks. I do not yet know however if it's gonna be a scrapbuilt Stompa or a Battlefortress, he who lives will see.

Meanwhile you can allways follow my endeavours on my plog; Moriouce's Workshop.
