Orkimedes is apparently the Ork who created Ghazkhulls fancy gubbinz such as The Tellyporta, Ork Roks, stronger Traktor beamz and Stronger shieldz.

So my question is this. Who is he, Are there any more of his crazed Inventions and where did he come from? :confused:

Thanks for all input (Especially Orky-talk input).:cool:

We don't even know if he exists - he is supposedly an Ork Mek which the Imperium theorises is behind Ghazghull's new tek-no-lejy, including the improved Rokz, as well. We know nothing more, I'm afraid. :)

Ironic really, seeing that his boss is Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka.

Orkimedes is obviously based on the great ancient Greek scientist, philosopher ´Archimedes´

And Mag Uruk Thraka on the iron lady, Margaret Thatcher.

That one really is terribly good.
So is Orkimedes a real ork or just a hypothetical mastermind theorised by the Imperium?

I believe he's real, personally.

The Imperium theorised his existance from Ghazghkull's improved technology.
No-one has been able to identify him as an individual ork, though the best candidate of the special characters would be Wazzdakka Gutzmek.
The Hulk that Parol engaged on the fringes of the Armageddon system showed higher speed than expected, as you might expect from a speed freak.

I can't remember if there was a mek mentioned in the Piscina IV campaign.
Ghazghkull's original Mek was Gorbog who was supposed to be drawing up plans for:- "Somfink big an' shooty wiv' lotsz of gunz" He built a tinboy for Ghazghkull and was armed with a kustom grenade launcha and a kustom force field. He was responsible for a Scorcher.

Also in Ghazghkull's original warband was an Evil Sun Mek called Mekgog or Magrot, (depending on which page you read) he had a heavy bolter and kustom force field. He was responsible for 2 War buggies.
