whirly_bird_illustrationSome time ago Forgeworld released the “Chinork“. A large Ork helicopter with twin rotors and bags of style. Some time later Ramshackle Games released their own ‘Copter. In 2012 Ogrebane put some rules together and being the nice chap that he is licensed them under Creative Commons. Now to come up with some fun ways of taking out those flying loonies…

We’ve laid these rules out as part of the Gorkamorka Heritage Project. There’s a tag here on tUGS for documents released as part of it in case you’re interested to see what else has come out of it so far. There’s quite a lot of documents we’re still trying to reach the authors of (how many of you still have the same email addresses you had in the late 1990s!). Check out one of the forum threads that Flamekebab has created about the project to learn more – The Waaagh, Specialist Games, DakkaDakka.

Ah yes, the document we were talking about before. Get it here:

Gorkamorka meetup at ExiliCon 2015

Phew, what a scorcher!

Filed under: General

Today we’ve got something that’s more of a completionist piece than anything else. It’s the original article from the month the old Scorcha model was released (White Dwarf 220). Well, technically it was the new scorcha model as the original was released in 1989/1990 but you get the idea!scorcha_illustration

This article contains both the 2nd edition Warhammer 40,000 rules for the Scorcha and the Gorkamorka rules for it. The latter seems a bit odd as the issue was well into 1998 and the rules for Scorchas have always been in Da Roolz. Slow month for content, maybe..?

Anyway, there’s a download link below. It’s about 11 MB – probably not an issue but a heads-up for anyone accessing the file from a slower data connection just in case.

There’s rumbling on the Facebook group about the next meetup although a date hasn’t been settled on just yet. If you’re interested pop over and let the guys know when works for you.

Last time was apparently a proper bash and there’s a full report over on YakTribe courtesy of ineptmule.

The meetups take place at Warhammer World in Nottingham:

When Gorkamorka was first released the Necrons didn’t officially exist, although GW had toyed with the aesthetic in Space Crusade for their Chaos Androids. They’d been planned though and hidden amongst the artwork for Gorkamorka was something rather familiar to modern players…


It was several months after Gorkamorka was released before the Necrons were launched. By modern standards it was a pretty subdued affair – initially there were only Necron Warriors and Scarabs. As part of that release push there was this showcase article on some rather good Necron-themed terrain, complete with an in-progress Adeptus Paleologos dig site. It’s from White Dwarf 220 and features the work of Dave Andrews, Owen Branham, and Mark Jones.

Heads up for those on mobile connections and similar – the file is about 15 MB.
