The Black Orc, Morglum Necksnapper is the leader of the mighty Necksnapper tribe of the Darklands.

History

As a youth he took in many battles were the Orcs were defeated by the superior discipline and cohesion of the Dwarfs. [6a]

Morglum defeated Roglobb Gutripper in single combat to take command of a small warband of greenskins although the challenge was issued only momens after Roglobb had been stuck in the stomach with a battle axe. He then led a band of some 80 Orcs, a dozen Goblin Wolfriders and a pack of snotling slaves (and emergency food supply) on an extended camapign of despoiling, pillaging and eating the inhabitants of large villages and small towns. [6a]

Fighting against Dwarfs

In 2488 IC he led his forces across the World's Edge Mountains and defeated a large Bretonnian errantry army which had been methodically cleansing the northern Badlands of greenskins for several years. As the Bretonnian duke and his surviving knights galloped frantically out of Death Pass towards the setting sun, pursued by hordes of Goblin Wolf Riders, Morglum Necksnapper made his famous pronouncement "Let 'em tell da King. Da east belongs to da Orcs. Da east belongs to Morglum. Da east is green."[1][3]

Aided by his second-in-command, Oglok the 'Orrible, Morglum later united with the Orc Warboss, Gorfang Rotgut to attack Karak Azul. The greenskins briefly took possession of the Hold and captured many of King Kazador's kin.

End Times

Morglum was slain by Grimgor Ironhide during the End Times, the Necksnapper Tribe was then absorbed into his massive Waaagh!.[5]

Iron-fisted with a fearsome reputation, inspired by his experiences fighting the Dwarfs, he tries to impose discipline on his boyz with limited success. [6a]

Weapons and Equipment

  • WFRP 1st Edition: Breastplate, Helmet, Magic Battle Axe. [6c]
