Default Orcses and Goblinses spawnings?

I know in 40k Orks are born by sprouting from spores.

Now is this the same in fantasy as I've read the army book but it makes no mention of this. Is it mentioned in a previous book?

Congratulations!! You now have the power of the jaguar warrior!

err... couldn't I shoot lasers from my hands instead?

Yes, orcs and goblins reproduce just like in 40k.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “The current system of servitude is barbaric and inadequate for today's generation. We appeal to the leaders of both the Imperium and the Coalition of Hateful Assholes and Organised Sin to seek to change this for the betterment of all its citizens”

Lorgar: “Guess there was one plot thread we forgot to erase ...” Mortarion nods in agreement, while Ahriman looks on suspiciously.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “We feel trapped, we feel oppressed. And we urge our governments to release us from these metal boxes-”

Lorgar: “Oh shi-”

Firraveus Carron: Leaping to his feet. “METAL BOXES?!?METAL BOXES!!!THEY RIDE IN METAL BOXES!!!”

...which probably explains why they cant be wiped out totally...

oooh, on a second note, sorry to go a little off topic

i heard that in 40k, ork tech works because the ork believes it does, same deal for fantasy?, eg 'I have a massive sword because i believe i do!'

I think a large lump of sharpened metal is going to hurt if it hits you whether the owner believes it will or not

Things like the Snotling Pump Wagon I could imagine work in some way on the principle that they work because the Orcs believe it should.

Give an Ork two paperclips, a rubber band, a spent ammo cartridge with some bits of shrapnel, and a dinner plate and he'll give you a bullet to the head from his new gun.

So all orks are Mcguyver?

Also in the fluff, you never have a gobbo lead a Mob of Orcs yet..

You can have an army of orcs lead by a Gobbo Warboss?

Congratulations!! You now have the power of the jaguar warrior!

No, Orks aren't McGuyver. McGuyver was an Ork! You never noticed the green skin and hunched body?
