== History ==
The Orks were created by the [[Old Ones]] to fight on their behalf during the War in Heaven against the [[Necrons]]. The Orks possessed a unique gestalt psychic field, drawing power from each other rather than the warp itself. They were also engineered to have an innate knowledge of technology and to grow from spores, making them into an ideal self-sufficient fighting force. However, when the Old Ones were eventually destroyed by Chaos, the Orks ran amok and continued to fight everyone in the galaxy indiscriminately.
The great Ork empire of Ullanor was defeated by the Emperor's forces during the Great Crusade, but they came back with a vengeance under the leadership of [[the Beast]], the biggest and most powerful Warboss in history. Massive Ork forces have also attacked Armageddon twice, and are currently engaged in an endless fight against the [[Tyranids]] at Octarius. The Orks live to fight, and seek only to conquer and loot any world they encounter.
