I've never read any of the black library novels - are there any which have orks in them? Any good ones?
I've often wanted to write an Ork novel.. but work, school, booze, and women have me tied down pretty tight..
I know how it feels...
actually pretty good
The novel is comprised mainly of the journaling of a smartboy, who is the centric protagonist, and these documents have somehow been acquired by the Ordos Xenos.. translated as best as possible, and including excerpts of other Imperial documents which pertain to the very same events that take place, to provide a clear overview of the goings on. The novel is "written", much like the Ciaphus Cain series come to think of it, by an Inquisitor of the Ordos Xenos, as to provide a case study on the Ork mentality. The exposition pits Imperial commentary, and many assumptions about Orks, against the actual word of an Ork.. the conclusion of which, is that while many of the Imperium's opinions of the Orks are well founded (mostly pertaining to one of these five topics: stompin, burpin, cursin, shootin, or speedin),
That sounds interesting!
Would it contain lots of fights too? I mean it seems necessary in a warhammer novel.
Smartboy like a snotling or a Mek (Dok)?
there is also something much more devious, cunning, and sinister, something that suggests Imperial tacticians have long underestimated the Orks.
And this one is just perfect! I really don`t like that my Mek supposed to be a stupid user of technology... that`s far too human perspective!
^--(Now, if only someone would write it for me!)
And here is the point where I can`t help... first I got to learn English
I bought this book, read the first novel (Fifteen Hours) and like it. Seemed strange that IG was so 2k instead of 40k (I guess they are ), but the IG culture was there and the orks were pretty gruesome.This may not be EXACTLY what you're looking for, but the collection titled Imperial Guard Omnibus: Volume One contains three novels where the ig are fighting orks. Although the stories are all from the perspective of humans, the collection does feature lots of good ork'ey action.
