Krimson Killerz (Black Orcs)

Primary tabs

Armed to da teef and always ready for a scrap, this elite Black Orc regiment wear distinctive red armour.

Black Orcs are the biggest, meanest and strongest of all Orcs. They get their name from their dark green or black skin, although the title is just as much derived from their dour demeanour. Black Orcs are grim and singularly focused on war - an occupation they take extremely seriously. It can truly be said that Black Orcs live to fight. In this regard all Black Orcs treat other Greenskins, even the more battle-worthy types, such as Boar Boyz, as little more than frivolous amateurs. This is largely because lesser Orcs, even the hulking Big 'Uns of the Orc tribes, are likely to squabble amongst themselves instead of concentrating on the foe. This lack of discipline is a shortcoming that Black Orcs neither forget nor forgive. The Black Orcs' opinion of Goblins is even worse, seeing them as beneath contempt and not fit to carry spare equipment, much less fight.

Attributes

Attribute Description
Hide (forest) This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
Immune to Psychology The unit is immune to psychological attacks (fear and terror).

Tactics

Unlike regularĀ Black Orcs, the Krimson Killerz deal area of effect melee damage. This makes them less effective against strong single entity units like enemy lords surrounded by infantry, but makes them more effective against tightly packed enemy infantry.
