so i'm painting up a force of kroot mercs and plan on hiring them out for my orks. cheaper to infiltrate than kommandos and can actually hit something, but that's another thread. so i'm painting, and one converted shaper and 11 kroot later it hits me: how exactly would my warboss pay for these guys? he cant just charge it on his ork visa. (veeza?) orks use their teeth for currency; fine for the orks, but not for interacting with other races. if that were true, the Badmoon clan would be swarming with hired help.
so my question. would the orks pay let them? Let the kroot have some of the captured equipment? let them keep any imperial currency they find? ( i imagine the orks would find the shiny coins with the guy on the throne usless- but you never know.) perhaps the sheer amount of DNA the kroot would get would suffice? Or maybe pay them in teeth after the job is done, then just krump them and get their teeth back? i just don't know. it never says in the fluff how exactly kroot mercs are paid.
so any and all suggestions will be much appreciated and will most likely find thier way into some fluff i'll be putting on LO.
thanks in advance. my warboss thanks you
I didn't know Orks had a monetary systems. If they want something they just take it and bash whoever owns it
Dayd pay wiff teeff, of course!
Actually One of two possibilities spring to mind.
A) The Meks would do some... improvements on some of the kroot gear.
or more likely
The Shaper would know exatly how orks work, get them into the fighting and then sneak off and collect what they could while the orks are stuck in.
Hmm, now that i think about it, they could go with this line "We gits da metal, you gits da meat."
-Alaitoc Ranger Force (1850pts)
Kroot dont hire out to orks if i recall correctly.
i believe they trade in return for their "share" of the enemy and weaponry etc.

I hate thinking that Orks have currency, teef or no teef, i prefer the idea of them just beating people up who has something they want. So much funnier lol.
Dire Avengers got better Armor Saves than Guardians cause' they wear bigger hats & loincloths?God help us if Orks discover Sombrero/Poncho Technology!
Well, i would imagine all the spoils of war (both loot and flesh) they want.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
