I was reading the current “reassuring” missive from The Regimental Standard when I saw this things about fighting orks. Since Orks were my first 40K army, I do have a soft spot (maybe in my head?) for them. I got a bit of a laugh out of the article; it reminded me of some of the moves I’ve learned in martial arts classes where everything works great until the subject starts resisting, lol!
The green-skinned alien known as the Ork is the one of the most widespread and rightly despised xenos races of the galaxy*. They are also amongst the most common enemy you will encounter as an Imperial Guardsman.
At range, the forces of the Ork are no match for the disciplined armies of the Imperium, and will be outmanoeuvred, outgunned, and destroyed in short order. Single Orksare also little threat, their large muscles hiding poor coordination and low intelligence
However, due to their individual weakness, Orks have been known to attack in such numbers that firepower alone does not suffice, and it can occasionally become necessary to despatch these aliens in close quarters fighting.
While the large frame and brutish appearance of the Ork can make them seem an intimidating foe to a cowardly soul, as a Guardsman of the Astra Militarum, you should be above such fear.
