You always hear about Ork conquests on taking over other worlds, but you never hear about what original Ork homeworlds are like. Are they jungle? Arid wastelands? Any fluffmasters know what they would be like?

My first impression would be jungle-ish as it would have been hard evolutionary wise to hide from predators on an arid world with green skin, but maybe i'm wrong.

I would say they had a kind of cyclical appearance.

Step 1 - Orks develop from fungi in whatever the natural flora and fauna is.

Step 2 - Orks hyper-evolve using archeotech or natural resources/aboriginal inhabitants.

Step 3 - Hyper evolution destroys the planets biosphere.

Step 4 - Orks now leave the planet on a waaagh. Leaving a wasteland and fungal spores.

Step 5 - Planet slowly recovers to a level to support life and then it all starts again at step 1.

Planets with a standard level Orkish civilisations are somewhat similar to human civilisations, except every single building is made of elaborate scrap metal.

Copy-pasta and its hilarity aside (I used to live in AZ, is that picture from Sierra Vista?), Orks were genetically engineerd to be what they are. This means that they were likely seeded onto worlds and have no true homeworld. With the way their biology works, they can survive in nearly any climate, as long as it supports their life-cycle. It has been suggested that jungle is the best palce for their reproduction to work, but I have not seen any fluff that says they cannot be birthed in dry climates. On a world dominated by orks, you'll have two very distinct possibilities depending on whether we are talking feral or standard orks. Though they use similar technologies, standard orks have more of it. Standard orks are also far more aggressive than their feral brothes, generally speaking. :mrgreen:

Actually, Orksih reproduciton does work just about anywhere, it's just that it works best in jungles because of the high availability of nutrients and the decreased likelihood of them getting spotted and killed.

Now Iv'e forgotten the Original post......


.......Oh yeah Ork homeworlds.
Orks will set up shop anywhere, years after they have been cleared from a planet the spores the release can suddenly become active and grow into Orkoid creatures each batch growing will grow into a more advanced Orkoid form from Squigs up to boyz.

They tend to do better on Jungle planets because Fungus likes those damp sort of conditions and they get the chance to go through the Squig hatching to boyz hatching out stages un molested to biuld more mumbers.

Then there is the fact that the more Orks there are Da Bigga an Stronga they get. (Da more you bash eds da bigga youz get.)
