Personally id rank the Beast in top. He managed to gather a galaxy bursting ork waagh. None of the other ork warlords have managed that feat.

If Ghazhkull keep rolling in success, I suspect he might hit a big growth spurt soon.

Actually I don't see how Ghaz's Waagh is said to be bigger than Beasts' since I think Ork's armagedons' forces were said to number in 3-4 milions, which sounds really small compared to how many Orks Beast unleashed on hundreds of planets and what not, the book really makes you think like Beasts' Orks number in hundreds of bilions literally.

Then there's the fact Beast is far far far bigger than Ghaz, although we don't know who's the better leader since Beast hasn't made an appearance yet, in actual combat that is.

By the way, I was thinking, who do you think will kill Vangorich? The older fluff mentions him being killed by single surviving astartes, so I'm guessing " Slaughter " ? I doubt it's going to be some random astartes.

Also, any ideas on which temple Wire/Beast Krule belonged to? It doesn't seem like he was a part of the major ones, so maybe some unknown minor one?

Yep, so far I think the Beast -seriously- outclasses Ghaz. So far the 2 major astartes that have been shown is Koorland 'Slaughter' and Maximus Thane, could be either. But id lean to Slaughter, given the name play and being the possible founder of the Deathwatch. Theres an image of him in deathwatch armor.

I think Krule is special, since he is the right hand man of Vangorich, the best of the best to do the Grand master's dirtiest work. Id guess Eversor, but he is a lot more lucid than those beasts.


Edit: Oh, I misread what you said, i thought you meant the kill on the beast.

I'll be dissapointed if the Beast ( the ork beast ) doesn't mop up floor with at least a 2-3 squads of astartes, or destroys a super heavy tank or so.

And yeah Wire is a real deal, I wouldn't be surprised if he takes out an Astartes when the combined assault against Eversors happens.

That Ork is a baby compared to the Beast.


On another note, ho boy shit is going down in book 4. So the Ork Moon reached Terra herself. Im a bit confused as to how they avoided all of the opposition from the Imperial fleet. I guess they used that warp-tunelling again?

In any case, Im hyped as fuck for " The Last Wall ". I never heard of the author that wrote the 4th book tho.

Finished The Last Wall......epic! The intrigue and plotting is reaching a truly fervered pitch. And we get a glimpse into a quite secretive area of Terra. A last ditch effort to half the great menace, and their utterly suprising counter. Who knew orks could be capable of -THAT?!-

I am quite looking forward to book 5, Throneworld to see what happens next.
