The furious beat of a Warchanter driving a horde of Orruk Brutes to violence

Warchanteres are the Orruk heralds of the Ironjawz warclans. They are crazed followers of Gorkamorka that use their stikks to create beats that calls out to the brutal minds of the Ironjawz and resonates with the energy of the Waaagh!. The violent rhythm that constantly pounds in their ears drives them to use anything they can to smash out the beat, be it their hitting stikks, bits of mangled iron, enemy skulls or even their fists thumping the faces of their victims whose screams are added to the beat as well. Hordes of already belligerent orruks stamp their feet and bash their choppas on their armour to the time of the beat in horrifying before display before they charge to battle. [1][4]

Every good Megaboss has one or several Warchanters in their Warclan and it is unclear if the Megaboss is attracted to the beat of the Warchanter or if the Warchanter is attracted by the thrumming Waaagh! energy of a big boss. Due to the mystical nature of the beat that its influence reaches even beyond earshot and the thumping can be heard by Warclans even if they are leagues away making Warchanters extremely valuable for Megabosses who are trying to replace casualties and grow their warclans.[4]

Equipment

Warchanters carry two large stikks called a Gorkstikk and a Morkstikk which are used to smash out rhythms on the the skulls of enemies.[2]
