Well, continuing on my three hour tour of free downloads from the Games Workshop Site, I came across the beauty, wonder, and splendor of GorkaMorka. Do you like Orks? Do you like cars? Do you like Guns? Do you like Orks driving around in cars with guns? GorkaMorka is the free download for you!While not as detailed as my (newly) beloved Inquisitor, GorkaMorka is a much more simple (remember, I am a war game retard) and fast flowing game that revolves around running your own group of scavenging Orks on the planet of Angelis, after the Space Hulk the Orks were aboard crashes into the world. Said Orks then proceed to scavenge rubble from their hulk in order to make a giant altar to GorkaMorka (they can't decided which god it is, Gork or Mork). The rules themselves are very like Warhammer 40k and Necromunda, both of which are more than passing familiar to me, though I don't post about either very often. There is a greatly increased focus on Orkish vehicles, with a good deal of the first book, "Da Roolz" dedicated to operating in and fighting from Trukks, Buggies, Bikes, and Trakks. Wow, my spellchecker is going to have a seizure after this paragraph.
This game is great news. It's simple, it's fun, and it honestly seems to be a more lighthearted approach to the Warhammer universe. Warhammer 40k is cool and all, but it is a fairly grim setting. That's not bad, but Orks do get a lot of marks in this game for Comic relief. I am going to be trying this out a bit in the next few weeks, along with Inquisitor, so we will see how it works out. Inquisitor is great from what I have done with it so far, but it is a little complex for the simpleness of Jamesbrain (as my coworkers call it), so these rules might be just the ticket.
I do wish I had picked it up back in the day, though. Look at all the great accessories it came with!
