A Megaboss challenging a horde of Bloodletters

Megabosses are the Orruk leaders of the Ironjawz and the largest of their warriors. It is known among the Ironjawz that the more an Orruk fights and wins, the bigger they become, their muscles thickening and their teeth getting longer as their body grows. Megabosses are veterans of countless fights, shown both on their bruised knuckles and the nicks on their choppas. Understandably, then, Megabosses are massive, so huge they overshadow even the mightiest opponents. Other orruks know better not to mess with them. Some may even ride the equally belligerent beasts, known as Maw-Krushas, into battle.[1][6a]

Ironjaw Megabosses are brutal warriors, regardless of fighting on foot or on a Maw-krusha. Competition among Megabosses is frequent and these contest generally devolves into a lot of yelling and inevitably, fighting. However their power rests in more than just muscle and iron, as focal points for the Waaagh! they have a bestial charisma that draws other Ironjawz towards them from all directions and the destruction caused by a gathering Waaagh! is almost as bad as the event itself.[6a]

Equipment

Megabosses wear the heaviest armour and have the biggest choppas. The armour will contain the best bits of iron taken from the battlefeld. In addition to layers of the shiniest iron, Megabosses hammer on trophies such as the skulls of tough-looking creatures, bits of broken weapons or symbols ripped from the banners of enemies that looked important. The arms of the armour may include Rip-tooth Fists made of heavy iron. Those that ride Maw-Krushas may take Gore-hackas and Scrap Tooths when fighting upon their mounts.[6a][2][3]
