I have noticed that many of the orcs are bald. All pictures in the army book displays bald orcs and bald goblins. But in the orc regiment box, there is an orc that has hair, and some wolfriders have hair too. Does this mean that orcs shave themselves bald or does almost all of them have hairgrowth-problems? I cant find anything in the book about the orcs hairstyle ( or lack of it). And what about facial hair? I cant imagine all orcs shaving themselves every morning.:wacko: They are more like savages that dont give a shÂ¤t how they look. Ideas, anyone?
I remember reading in some fluff once (Gorkamorka, I think) that all orks are bald. The only way that they can have hair is to train a "hair Squig" to stay attached to their scalp or chin. I think they look something like a tribble (from startrek) with teeth. Apparently it is quite a status symbol as it is only safe if you do it with well trained and fed squigs. Badly trained or hungry hair squigs either fall off at embarrasing moments, or start chewing. :cry:
I have got literally hundreds of both orc and goblin models dating back over 15 years, and not one of them has hair on either their face or head. I assume orcs (and goblins) are in fact bald.
Helper monkey, bring me beer and donuts
Ya, all orcs are bald. Like stated before the ones who do have air is from a hair squig which is placed ussually on the top of the head, this makes it look like the orks or orcs are sporting a top not.
Hairsquig! Thats very dangerous and odd. like all orc-things. Thanks for the answers.
well, those orcs that go into the army shave their heads
Orcs have no army, everyone fights, the closest thing orcs have to a civilian is the guy using the rock lobba or bolt thrower, oh, and probably some of the guys who craft the weapons, although I would imagin they would fight to, hard to see an orc make a big ax and not us it himself.
i know. i was just kidding
Seen no reference to hair squigs in Fantasy Battle fluff my theory was that they scalped people and looted their hair.
I still hate Twiglets!
I have some spearchukkas at home, and one of the crewmodels has hair. I cant however see any squig unless it would be very small. GW mistake I think.
