Savage Big Stabba is a unit of Orruks of the Bonesplitterz warclans. They are a pair of Bonesplitter boys wielding a huge jagged-pointed spears, called big stabbas aloft, using it both against massive monsters and arrogant heroes.[1]

Big Stabbas are Bonesplitterz who wield their warclan's Gork Teef. Each Gork Toof is a massive spear that requires two hulking orruks to carry it, and is topped with a special point usually fashioned from stone or bone that is blessed by the spirit of Gorkamorka. Adept monster hunters, Big Stabbas barrel through the press of combat to drive the great spear into the hides of the towering beasts. The combined skill of the orruks and the magical nature of the Gork Toof helps them seek out the 'squishy bits' of the creature, and the spear's long haft allows it to be driven deep. Sometimes, in the case of especially big monsters like the Magmadroths and Gargants, more than one Gork Toof will be employed, and whole Teef Rukks will swarm around these megalithic beasts. When the creature at last falls, its body is covered in a forest of huge spears.[4]

The more often one these sacred weapons is wielded in battle, the greater significance it has to the tribe. It is said by the Wurrgog Prophets that the spirit of every creature killed by these huge spears nourishes Gorkamorka. Some of the weapons have been used by tribes for centuries, repaired and revered by generations of Bonesplitterz. These spears can even take on a life of their own, earning nicknames like Big Pokey or Deffstabba.[4]
