Taktuz’s Legion – 4th Warhorde of Marghuz’s Fiefdom
Taktuz’s Legion is the name of the Epic Ork Army I am building largely as an army for me to introduce people to the game. Since I have begun work on a region of space in which all my 40k universe forces are located I decided to make this force represent one of the many Ork Hordes the Imperium has to fight. There are two small Ork ‘Empires’ that help to separate the remaining Imperial Worlds from those controlled by the Apostles of the Word. This force is from the northern region of space refered to as Marghuz’s Fiefdom. The Warboss for this horde is Genrail Taktuz of the Blood Axes who finds himself not quiet big enough to take control of one of the worlds in the Fiefdom at present. He believes that with enough Luck he can make it there, so every Ork in his army must wear blue, but Taktuz is also no idiot by Ork standards and has had any Humans with lots of shine metal brought to him to be given the chance to ‘advise’ him. Recently one human has taken on the mantel of Advisor and allowed Taktuz to move beyond just a simple Warboss to become a Genrail. Taktuz has decided that learned Orks are better Orks and has even ‘secured’ trading rights with a few ‘umans.
Taktuz’s immediate lieutenants are: Kolonel Oldz leading the Blo Boarz Squadron, Kolonel Ongrode leading the ‘oldin’ force, and Doc MkMek chief Mekboy. Taktuz’s Legion is divided much along these lines with any boyz crazy enough to get into the air under Kolonel Oldz, the slowest under Ongrode, and big gunz under MkMek. Taktuz likes to jump in a Battlewagon or Gunwagon (all looted Rhinos) and zoom at the enemy, leadin’ from the front as the Advisor tells him. Taktuz takes with him a band of boyz, bikez, and buggiez.
So to assembling and painting I go.
