Ork names for factions
Posted 04 June 2018 - 02:10 PM
Chaos beakies (would they seem them as distinct from Beakies?)
Sisters of Battle (as with CSM?)
I do a bit fluff for my blog posts and I would like to have the right lingo.

Tyranids are Bugs but most 'umies call them that too, I believe Ad Mech could easily be cog 'eads, and Sisters would really just be "'umies that know how to put up a good fight"

Tyranids are called Bugz (or Bugeyes). Mutants (of a Chaos or other taint) are called Fingz.
As you're looking at Ork words, most Ork words are connected to Glyphs, so here's a compilation of all of them that Gaf Naz made a while back:
If you would like some more reading about Ork Fluff and little known bits, I wrote a series called Orkish Misconceptions that covers lesser known aspects of the fluff. There's a lot of text though. Someone else counted it, and I deliberately ignored the number. I do cover Ork Language, though, it's the last chapter (excluding the Conclusion). Chapter 22. If you can't see the thread (as it's an old one), make sure you update the forum filters in the Fungus Beer Hall to Custom - Show All, and tick the box remember filters on the green bar above the topic list.
I will be making a PDF of it at some point, I promise. The gits keep asking me.

My life is a sorry state of stressing of whether pages should be standard page layout or two/three columns. I was hoping to get some artwork to chuck into it, but I can't exactly complain about people having the audacity to not quickly make artwork to order, for free, for a PDF of articles written by one guy.
Currently, aside of fiddling with formatting, I'm checking over the text and trying to edit a few chapters.

Vibrating rod riders
Virtual girlfriend lovers
Space electric boogaloors
Galactic Internet porn hunters
"Those 'umies who have porn of tin'eads spread all over their internal hard drives"
The list goes on really...
As for fish'ead I just call them the Japanese Mecha dudes.
