Welcome to Librarium Online!
I still pretty green with Warhammer and all, and have started to do some online shopping for minis and tools. I see "Gorka-Morka" pretty often online. What is this reffering to? Is it an older version of the miniatures? I've seen minis that look smaller and older, but I cannot be sure.
Gorkamorka was a game released by GW in the mid-1990's. It was a squad based game were oppposing players take control of two gangs of orks, with the sole aim of collecting scrap. The game is named after the ork Gods, Gork and Mork. The ork trukk is the only model still in large scale product from that game.
Hope that helps a bit.

Also all the ork vehicles we have now are from that game, hence that the drivers look so different from normal orks.
Also in the ork codex there is a tactics bit which is named "Gorka Morka" after the ork gods Gork and Mork. The tactic basically says, footslogg some boyz with grot shields or kustom force field wielding burnaboyz up the center of the board while a mechanized force consisting of bikes, buggies, maybe some trukk boyz or even a battlewagon zips around the flank to give the enemy something to worry about other than your slogging boyz. Just another reference it could be.
Actually if its out of print and/or not covered under copyright any longer, I'd appreciate it if someone could point me in the direction of the rules if they can be found on the web somewhere.

Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

It was and is an awesome game. I'm starting a campaign at my university after the Easter break, it rocked!
And the only pieces you can get for it now from GW are the vehicles and one or two nobz. The rest are out of production completely. eBay's your best bet, there's some very sweet deals on them there.
Actually, Gorkamorka was a fun game, but it was more or less just Necromunda with vehicles. Which led people to fell a bit cheated, when they bought the game and realized that they sort of had the rules book already.
