Boss Gorestompa is a legend amonst his Waaagh! A scholar in equal measure with his dead-killy-'bility, he has a genetic flaw that causes him to enjoy reading Imperial documents. Even though he doesn't know how to read, he's seen enough pictures to gain an understanding of Imperial combat strategies and command heirarchies.
In his early life, his fascination caught the attention of many of the other, bigger Orks, and caused them to pick on him. Having to defend his beliefs at all times, Gorestompa never backed down, mercilessly 'ead buttin anyone who criticized him. So thick with knowledge was his skull that indeed all but the biggest n' tuffest died from his 'ead buttin rampages, and the constant conflict caused him to grow in alarming proportions.. until one day he found himself in a 'ead buttin contest with his former boss, Skumthumpa, but Skumthumpa's 'ead, as big and bossy as it was, was no match for Gorestompa.
Now with his own warband, coupled with his (sort of) knowledge of Imperial doctorine, Gorestompa set of on a campaign that would last many a decades, 'ead buttin many a Bosses into submission until dozens of other banners marched under his own. Gorestompa, copy-catting the Imperium, never attempted to slay other Bosses, save for those who would not submit. Instead, he insisted upon keeping them as his "lewtennents", gladly accepting any dissent amongst his tribes and meeting it with brutal competition, thwarting any and all attempts to overthrow his rule.
Times were difficult for a while, as most other warbands competed for the right to challenge Gorestompa and overthrow him, preventing his attempts at starting a Waaagh! proper. But still, Gorestompa insisted that he needed his lewtennents, despite how most were disloyal.
This age of strife lasted three decades until Gorestompa met Kaptin Rogbogger, a cunnin little Grot that didn't take orders from nobody. Kaptin Rogbogger and his pirtate krew had escaped the clutches of their previous masters and attempted to form a merchent enterprise amongst Waaagh!s far and wide, trading their pirated artifacts for teef-a-plenty. But it wasn't Rogbogger's loot that gained the attention of Gorestompa, it was his fungal beer. A tonic so addicting and so potent it would send even the thickest Nob into a hallucinogenic frenzy, allowing them to become one with the Waaagh! energy that surrounded them.. as well as causing them to be more susceptible to influence. Gorestompa contracted Kaptin Rogbogger, promising him so many teef he'd need another cruiser just to contain them all, and thus Kaptin Rogbogger's Fungabong Beer was born.
With Kaptin Rogbogger's Fungabong Beer, and following a series of completely unrelated events, Gorestompa's tribes began to refer to him as Big Boss Gorestompa, Profet uv Gork 'n Mork ('n Mindy, though to this day nobody knows who "Mindy" is) Now tripping mad, all but the most reluctant warbands were completely loyal to Gorestompa's cause, and soon there-after Waaagh! Never Ending Kill Party gained full momentum.
Gorestompa and Never Ending Kill Party, an unstopable force of half mad, half strung-out Green Skins, conquered three whole systems before being brought to a halt. The Waaagh! entered a small system under the custodianship of the Dread Wolves Space Marine Chapter, a place that has yet to be conquered to this day. The epic battle which brought Never Ending Kill Party to a stop was a blessing in disguise, however, as Gorestompa seized the opportunity to restructure his warbands and form an empire.
Every Ork under his banner was ordered to remain within Gorestompa's three systems, where they would be allowed to wage never ending war amongst themselves until the day da Big Boss would call some of his boyz out of the good fight and send them on a "mishun". The warbands found difficulty complying to their Boss's orders at first, but quickly learned to obey. Gorestompa, knowing that no propa Ork feared death, devised a punishment so brutal that no Ork would rightly want to disobey. Any Lewtennant that couldn't stop 'is boyz from fighting each other to go on one of Gorestompa's crusades into Dread Wolf territory would spend the rest of his days confined in one of Kaptin Rogbogger's prison ships, completely cut off from the Waaagh! energy they desparately need.
Waaagh! Never Ending Kill Party still fights on to this day, whether against itself or against their most hated foes, the Dread Wolves. Boss Gorestompa is indeed a legend amongst his Waaagh! Tales of his existence have sprouted all amongst his warbands, whispering rumors that he doesn't really exist except within "da Interwebz".. though no Ork really knows what da interwebz is exactly, it still sounds mystical and they still feel his influence nonetheless.

Cool story, bro

This is brilliant. It really is. It has all of the markings of Orky logic, mildly psychotic behavior even before they discovered 'shrooms narcotics... (Can 'shrooms get stoned?), and, oh never mind, there isn't a third thing. I'm totally fixated on the idea of recursive substance abuse. XD
P.O.I. Does "Big Boss Gorestompa, Profet uv Gork 'n Mork 'n Mindy" only exist in the intertubes or did you actually model an Ork warboss with an abnormally thick head (even for an Ork warboss), carrying a book in one hand and a tankard in the other? (Now I'm almost afraid that you did model it...)
Edit: The "recursive substance abuse" thing should definitely be part of your sig.
Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.
