Default orky chaos?

I was playing the ork campaign and the ork warboss says "some times those chaos boys drop some good bits".
Are there any official stories of orks getting chaos tech?
Edit: ork campaign of retribution.

Well storm boyz used to be Orcs that worshipe khorne, but that was long time ago.

The main problem with the idea is the fact that chaos wargear is most often just imperial tech very mildly corrupted by exposure to warp energy, and the few example that aren't are often literally inhabited by warp entities tied closely to chaos and often specific chaos gods. Kind of hard to effectively loot a piece of kit when it will deliberately try and murder you if you don't belong to the same cult as them.

The Grey Knights codex tells of orks looting a chaos warhound titan to turn into a stompa so the grey knights are sent in to destroy the chaos vehicle. Orks loot anything from anyone and use it for themselves.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

I would find it very interesting to see an ork that is influenced by a possessed piece of armor or weapon. Especially if it has gnashing mouths that scream every time the object is used.
Chaos orks .... Corks?

One of the earlier Grey Knight novels has orks being forced to fight in an area in the eye of chaos, and they certainly embraced the god of war.

As for wargear, some of it would be a little small, but a gretchin driving a defiler or forge fiend to represent a deff dread would be pretty impressive.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Well wouldn't the machinespirit (or daemonforge for that matter) just eat the Gretchin? I would love to see them try to control the thing though - Would make for a brilliant comicstrip!

There are fluffy things that hint on the fact that orks might use and be used by chaos powers, also possessed!
This used to be canon, but curse me if i recall whence it came from:


EDIT: oh it was an old WD battlereport..grey knights vs orks or eldar vs orks??

In very old fluff (Waaagh The Orks, 'Ere we go, Freebooterz) Orks were not particularly susceptible to Chaos as they had very little for a demon to latch on to, having little actual ego and ambition (if you're big your da boss, if not your the bossed, simple).

Khorne Stormboyz were an option as were possessed warpheads (who were mainly unaffected by their demon aside from getting stronger and letting out sad wailing from time to time from their demon who'd get thoroughly depressed from finding itself stuck in a being completely immune it its manipulations and unable to get back in to the warp)

If somthing is worth doing, it's worth taking too far, "We set our motley puppets on the clouds and call them gods...","Ah! Now we see the violence inherent in the system!" "Come see the violence inherent in the system!" "HELP HELP! I AM BEING REPRESSED!"

Nurgle orks? Awesome. It's artwork from something made by gw so it's official.
An ork with a depressed jetpack would be funny.

There used to be some older storys with chaos worshiping orks with chaos tech but as mentioned above it was changed back to represnt the orks belifes and some kind of immunity to chaos. Still interesting ideas involved.



Da Golden Waaagh!
