From Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

A Waaagh! or Waaa-Orc is when Orcs & Goblins gather together under a powerful warboss to conquer and fight. [1a][2a][3a]

The leader of the Waaagh! throws everything he can against a chosen enemy causing other greenskins to flock to join him eventually, unless it is stopped, forming a sea of green skinned monsters swarming across the horizon yelling their war cries! [1a][2a]

The word-of-mouth history of Orcs themselves consists mostly of stories about the major Waaaghs and their leaders. [2a]


Larger Waaagh!s are epoch-defining violent invasions of immense armies. Some Waaagh!s travel only a short distances but others have crossed half of the Warhammer World.[3a]

Often the best defence is to retreat before it and hope that the energy of the Waaagh! will dissipated by internal conflict and the whole thing will fall apart. However all too often, the horde will reach a big city and they must be fought. [1a]
