During the war of the dakka the tau were falling back and at one point abandoning a small colony on a satellite world. The Orks overran the colony where the earth caste members were lodged. Her parents lost in the confusion of the evacuation, a young Tau girl was left alone in her habitation block.The Orks ignored her, looking for a proper fight, but some snotlings and gretchin eager to prove that they were big and tough orks decided to gang up on her.She then proceeded to pick up a tau spanner and kick, punch and wallop her way into a corner, fighting off all the snotlings and gretchin in her way. When a mek came (to kick all the snotlings upside the head) he saw the young tau girl. Mistaking it for a blue grot, and noticing it already had a wrench, he picked her up and told her to get back to work.Thanks to her earth caste upbringing she had a rudimentary knowledge of machines and mechanics, and her ability to help the Meks inventions work made her a utility to the Orks (although really the Mek just thought that she was a lucky charm due to her blueness).Now the Ork Mek keeps her close and acts to protect her (at least telling other Orks to shove off), while she herself has an added ability to kick some of the smaller orks/grots upside the head if they do cause her trouble.Her ability to add dakka is also a boon to the orks and "Da Blue Grot" has become somewhat of an endearing name for her.
>Wot are youz playin at, blue? Wot da zog 'ave you dun ta my trukk? Woss all dis gubbins here?>I replicated the Earth Caste Tetra's as best I could, I even polished the barrels and even managed to piece together some anti-gravity jets.>But oi told yoo to make it fastah!>B-but it has everything a Tetra does and those far outclock any wheeled vehicle we have and I worked really hard a-and I thought you'd like it a-and..The warboss stoops down and embraces the snivvelling Tau with his remaining biological arm while unhooking something from the wall with the mechanical one. A gargantuan green paw rests on her tiny shoulder and roughly dries off a tear with the flick of a calloused digit.>Oh blue, ya daft git. Da trukk's dead orky but..the Warboss says smiling, holding up a can of paint and a brush.>Da RED wuns is da fastest.
>The Story of Blue - "Da Blue Grot"Fucking dropped.
>>20109333Posting the other greentexts would be a great start to the thread.
Tork for name, none of you weeaboo faggots start arguing for some Japon 'Bluu' shit.
>>20109347Da Blue Grot is the only logical name.
>>20109347Youz muckin' about!
Orks do not moe
>>20109353Oh, yeah, "blue" sounds totally Japanese, of course.
>>20109353Shut up, yah faggot. Tork is a stupid pun that went way overboard.
>>20109363That's why they took a tauette to do it in their place.
>>20109363Did you even read the OP?
>>20109353>>20109360>>20109370Cut the bitching and bullshit about the name. Instead of it being a story it's just you lot complaining.
>>20109333 Yes!>>20109347Cry moar faggot
>>20109363Orks moe only by proxy, apparently.
>Now, dis one is Gork, and dis one is Mork.>But sir, what's the difference between them?>Who's the teecher 'ere? Shurrup. Da diff'rence is dat Gork is brutally cunning, but Mork is cunningly brutal. Get it now?>I'm... Not sure I do...>Gork krumps ya when yer' not lookin', and Mork krumps ya so y' can't look at anyfin any more. Alright?>Yes sir!
>>20109352Here's the one that started it all:>'Ere boyz, wut's dis squishy blue fing?>I dunno boss, them aliens gave it t' us. Want me to krump it good?>No, y' stoopid git, I'm boss and I say what we're krumpin. And we ain't krumpin this thing. Give it to da mekboyz, dey need the help.>If you say so boss.I wonder what would happen to her.
One ah dem greentext boyz (at least three of us contibuted). Dis fing here is my screencaps of eet so far, somewun make ah bettah wun if dey feelin up to it.
>>20109379It's just a fucking name. It's a much better name than 'Bluu'.Blue is fine. Just a nickname. I'm just pointing out Tork is the clearly superior choice.
>>20109333I feel like an ork would react to tears differently."Wuts dat leakin outta ya face blue grot, betta put some dakka in dat eye before it falls off."
Blue, huh? What's the Boss called? Fucking 'Green'?
>Someone suggests simple, one-word Orky name that is a pun>Rejected in favour of the mouthful, 'Da Blue Grot'/tg/ stop being retarded. The Blue Grot is a stupid name. Shit all it needs is a T and O.
>>20109401Why is there a pic of Xeno besides it?
>>20109412The boss would be big enough to name himself, as well as most orks. Do you think gretchin get to keep a name that orks politely call them?
>>20109406I'm pretty sure the wimpier gretchin cry from time to time, they're just not as cute.
>>20109402Yeah, because a lame pun that doesn't suit a character's personality is a better name....
>>20109425Unless I'm mistaken this particular drawfaggotry was supposed to be Blue. Of course I don't know Xeno so well, never really bothered to look her up.
>>20109422It is logical.>Actually an Ork name>Tau + Ork = Tork>Pun on torque>>20109431I'm pretty sure Orks don't remember the names Gretchen give themselves. So she can just be nameless, then, that's what you're saying?
>>20109457You happen to be mistaken.
>>20109412>Implying Boss Green isn't da Best.
>>20109445>>20109445>commenting on the difference between 'Tork' and 'Blue in describing a character's personalityHoly fuck, how autistic are you? You gonna write 1400 pages 'bout this waifu you just picked up? Tork doesn't even have to be a pun to be a better name.No name is actually better than prevaricating over what she is definitely or definitely not called. Cultist doesn't have a fucking name.
>>20109412Of course not, ya git, e's not da only green one. Don't know any ovva bloo grots cept dis one.>I happen to be fine with both names, however, and very much like the idea that the tau refers to herself as T'ork and tries to assert it as her name, only to be constantly referred to as Blue by all the orks.
Let's talk about names for 300 posts.I think the boss should be called Ronin.
>>20109457That's Xeno. It was in reference to talking about an "overalls fetish"
>>20109474I shall accept this logic.
>>20109461"blue" is also an ork name. ork names are just words. The ork glossary was meant to help you create ork names. The catch-all ork term for non-orks is "skum", if you want to go that way.
>Am I kawaii boyz Uguuuuuuuz~
>>20109470>Boss Green, refering to skin colour>apply this to african warlord (obvious influence for orcs) and you have Colonel Black>implying that isn't fucking hilarious
>>20109461Orks, being uncreative, call her "blue" because no one else is blue. If there were a mob of gretchin, and one was fucking something up, a mekboy might call him about by a physical deformity.>>20109474This.
>>20109484This thread sure devolved fast, didn't it? I kinda like >>20109474, if only to shut up the whiner.
>>20109496Cool, let's call her Skum.
reposting from other thread>all the orks call her blue, or da blue git, or ya git.>She keeps on insisting they call her tork.>Only the mek calls her tork, and only in private. and only sometimes. at least she thought he did.
So how often do the Orks rape her.
>>20109529On a daily basis of course.
Urgh, I'm having a fucker of a time trying to get the previous thread archived. Nearly there, I think.
>>20109529Bipedal mushrooms don't have dicks, sorry.
>>20109529Orks don't have reproductive organs.
>>20109534goddamn how can you fail at this? it's easy as fuck.
>>20109536They don't adopt Tau, either.
>>20109474This is a fitting compromise.
Tork-kun calls the orks oni-chan in turn
>>20109529>implying its rape>can't rape the willing
>>20109533That's what I figured. Multiple times, or only once?>>20109552Oh, so she's down with the Ork dicks?
>I TOLD YA, YA GIT, THE NAME'S T'ORK! I'Z A TAU AND I'Z A ORK, SO I'Z T'ORK!>Shaddap afore I krump ya, Blue.>...yes, boss...>That's me T'ork.>What was that, boss?>I DIDN'T SAY NUFFINK YA BLUE LITTLE GIT, NOW GET BACK TA WORK!
>>20109536they do have dicks, since they sometimes piss on things, and seem to have a fly on their pants. but no balls
>>20109543I read the wrong bit, like an idiot.I thought I had to save the entire page. Kill me.
>>20109529Guess it had to happen eventually.
>>20109534It's not fucking hard. In fact, I already archived it.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/20106572/
proving once again Orks can make anything better.... even tau...
How long until the inevitable 1d4chan wiki page?
we need more drawfaggotry.
>>20109556I'm cool with this as long as it isn't something that comes up every time she's shown. In my opinion, having a character correct others on a name is only comical a couple times.
>>20109628>How long until the inevitable 1d4chan wiki page?Until you make one, anon.
>>20109628Fuck that, how long until the Porn?
>>20109638>>20109637Let's just make this a porn character.
>>20109656No, let's not.It's a really nice character, with an already well done backstory. Let's not cheapen it.
>>20109656Just... go away.This is why we can't have nice things.
>>20109681>/d/evian/tg/uardsman>/d/>bitches about porn
>>20109691Even freaks of nature have standards.
>>20109691Bitches about porn about decent characters.
>>20109700So someone in porn can't be 'decent'?
>>20109680Stop sounding like sexualizing things cheapens them, or that making porn of a sexy and cute girl is some sort of corruption of what she is. Goddamn, she appeared in a "wat do?" thread. It'd be a shame if there was no porn of her.
I return with some more drawing ideas!Figured since I rushed the last one I would work more on a idea of what she looks like. With tau armour with a ork touch, then I figured with her engineering thing, she might have found some tau weapons and made a shoulder gun work.
NEEDS MORE GREENTEXT COPYPASTA
>>20109696What this kind anon says.
>>20109732that's not how tau legs work, but I like the metal panties.
>>20109700Lets try the decent female character test.Blue is now male. Oh wait it's suddenly boring and faggy.
>>20109746Yeah just realised as I was uploading... Woops
>>20109755Ha ha ha, yep. It's shit-tier waifubait, there's no question, so don't bitch about porn of it.
>>20109755Actually, I think it'd work if it was male as well.
>>20109755>implying an overly eager earth caste tau reverse engineer who is damn excited that he can see ork tech being made right infront of his eyes would be a boring character. especially as he gets to muddle about and live out a dream of building weapons his supervisors would only frown upon.
>>20109796It wouldn't be as cute, but it'd still work.
>>20109732Heres a quick fix of the silly mistake, so what do you guys think?
>>20109784I'm not using it in the 'jailbait' sense, anon.
>>20109632 I'll be sketching all day, should have something thread-worthy in 8 hours when my shift finishes.Hang in there /tg/, drawfags will deliver the goods you seek
>>20109807>It wouldn't be as cuteWhy not?
>>20109802>>20109807Aaand I stand corrected.
>>20109821Cause women are cuter. Why? Only the Gods know
>>20109835>Implying overly eager nerdy guys aren't still kind of cute
>>20109821because manliness is essentially incompatible with cuteness. The cuter you are, the least manly you are. Therefore, making her female does not only make her optimally cute, it also avoids thematic contradiction: a male tau growing amongst ork can only die or become badass. But cute is just weird.
>>20109849That's what the gang bang theory tries to make you believe. Actually they just take gay stereotypes and call it nerdy.
>>20109865Tell us more about the erosion of American masculinity, and how all women are bitches and whores.
I cannot into images or proper formatting, as I cannot into wikis, but I did my best.http://1d4chan.org/wiki/BlueDrawfags can throw their pictures up there, too. so that should make stuff easier. Me, I'm off to bed.I love you guys!
>>20109892I could, but that's not my point, i'm just saying that the "cute awkward nerdy guy" is just a "quirky effeminate homosexual" with thick glasses and a Green Lantern shirt.
>>20109912That's totally wrong. Nerdy does not equal homosexual, god fucking pity you if you're on /tg/ and think that.
>>20109907Actually you have to be registered in 1d4 chan to upload pictures.
>>20109916I'm not saying that "nerdy" equates "homosexual", not at all. I'm saying that "cute awkward nerdy guy" is actually a cheap repackaging of "quirky effeminate homosexual". Actual nerds aren't cute. Because they're not actually effeminate homosexuals
>>20109919Well there's my problem then.Off to bed regardless, might see if I can do a better job later on.Also, guys, shut the fuck up about cute males, nobody gives a shit.
>>20109811looks more fire caste then earth caste
>>20109811I like it. Very nice job.I wish I were a drawfag.
i thought you didnt get female orks
>>20109967Might be from the references I am using, happen to have a good example of a earth caste tau I could use as a guide?>>20109986Thanks, though anyone can draw with enough practice
>>20110014that's precisely why you get a female tau instead.
>>20110021>Thanks, though anyone can draw with enough practiceNot with retard coordination like mine.I can't draw for shit.
>>20110021doesn't look like you're using a reference at all.the OP pic would be a good place to start.or this
>BlueNever seen a blue skyI can see it reaching out and moving closerThere's something about blueAsked myself what's it all forYou know the funny thing about it, I couldn't answerNo I couldn't answerThings have turned a deeper shade of blueAnd images that might be real, may be illusionKeep flashing on and offFreeWanna be freeGonna be freeAnd move among the starsYou know they really aren't so farFeels so freeGotta know freePlease, don't wake me from this dreamIt's really everything it seemedI'm so freeNo black and white in the blueEverything is clearer nowLife is just a dream you know, that's never endingI'm ascending
>>20110049Do all Tau girls have insane thighs?
>>20110093in my version of 40k, they do, except the ethereals.
>>20110093Earth, Water, and Fire have dem hips and thighs.
>>20110014You mean F'orks?
>>20110049thats totally not how tau look.at least not in non fetish depictions
>>20110116Guess what Blue happens to be, smart boy.
>>20110112Yes yes, well done.
>>20109821Because the orks would man him up. A manly little boy isn't as cute as a manly little girl.
>>20110093Earth caste girls are built with a groundshaking booty.
>>20110212>builtin Xeno's case, quite literally.It also works as a CD player.
>>20110227Does that mean she farts chiptunes?
>>20110243Xeno does a lot of things. Rarely on purpose.
>>20109796>Actually, I think it'd work if it was male as well.It would be even better.
>>20110291He'd become a blue orc too fast. It'd still be rad, but not as adorable. Anyways, we need more about the poor unfortunate gretchin that the retired brain-addled tau took in as a "child".
>>20110307No, that sounds too much like those creepy age regression episodes every cartoon has, that give scar kids and turn them into diaper fetishists as they grow up.
>>20110320>that scar kidsfixed
>>20110291/cm/ pls gogo fap to boku no pickle
>>20110320You don't want to see a gretchin enrolled in some tau education camp cause an uprising amongst the younger tau?
>>20110351oh, that's okay
Just showing a little update before I go to lunch, now with some wider hips, ill be back soon
>>20110389Look at all dose gubbins!
>>20110369>Gretchin is stuck in the Tau Education camp with the rest of the Tau childlings>All the Tau are intently watching a video about the greatness of the Ethereals and the glory of the Greater Good>Getchin, being a sneaky little grot, sneaks in to the central broadcasting room>Starts mashing buttons to try to contact the boss, because getting kicked every day is still better than this shit>Manages to pick up an ork frequency, but it's only a one way communication>Impressionable young Tau are now exposed to nothing but ORKZ ORKZ ORKZ ORKZ>The younger generation starts to glorify everything ork, wearing green jackets and calling themselves members of the "WAAAGH Caste", calling Crisis Suits "Stompas", and the like>Shenanigans ensue
>>20110307And don't forget the old tau's drone "pet" who routinely gets torn apart and rebuilt by the gretchin.
>>20110307>>20110320For the record, here's the "origin story" post for the gretchin:An overly ambitions gretchin running up towards a tau manta, manages to stowaboard, falls asleep. Wakes up later when the manta is docked to an orbital goes wandering out into the station, gets scene by a tau who is interested in tau alien allies, gets confused to a lost alien child. gets adopted. the grot being a git while a kindly older tau just looks on and shakes his head sadly and provides unconditional love to the terror of a "child". Going so far as to protect the grot from a retired shas'ui who swears its a an ork "who this angel?"(as the grot is busy picking apart a drone. The old kindly tau is so out of his mind he even thinks sometimes that the grot sincerely loves him back. (it doesn't)
Love the thread guys!I'm still gonna do some artwork of Blu, but as I was thinking about the lore surrounding the idea, I figured out what the whole deal behind O'Shovah's defection from the Tau Empire. I'd like to personally thank you all for coming up with a story that will be keeping you guys entertained for months.
Don't forget to archive this thread too when the time comes.
how has this not been posted yet?
>>20110427I'm not sure why, but for some reason I see this ending in a footloose scenario, but I guess with WAAAUUGGHHHing instead of dancing.
>>20110780Oiy Blue! Wher's yer armor da Big Mek made ya?! And what'z yo mukkin about wiff dem puny eldar boys fer? I'z gonna tell da boss on ya!
I was trying to writefag a thing about a space marine scout happening upon Blue's WAAAGH and reporting it to his commander who comes to the obvious conclusion that the Tau are manipulating the orks to do their bidding and then suggests that the best course of action would be to launch an all out assault on all nearby Tau. It was going to be done in text logs sent between the two and everything, but I suck, so whatever. If anyone else wants to take a stab at it or hopefully come up with something better, have at it.
>>20110879STOP YAPPIN AND HAND ME THAT DAKKA. DIS BITCH IS ABOUT TO BE KRUMPED.
>>20110997Silence primates! She's learning from the best how to go even fasterI'm sure even you asexuals know what that means.
>>20111077I'z don see any red on dat boss pole o yers.
>>20110794Same here. Or maybe Footloose with orkified crisis suits leading into a WAAAAAGHIN
>>20110389Just about done with this, not sure if I want to colour it or keep it as a grey piece, either way, I kinda like how it's turning out.
>>20112003i like it.
>>20112003Its good, damn good.What program do you use, if I may ask?
>>20112087I use sai for my digital stuff, to me it feels much more natural for digital painting, even if something like photoshop has more tools to do cool things with.
Squigs make everything better.Also, looting las-guns is totally somthing she might do possibly.
>>20112109Thank you, I am afraid I am not well versed in digital painting.thank you for the info.
>>20112125Nah, its cool, always good to help out with things like that
And done with the colours, Hope you all like the concept of her
Is this some sort of new /tg/ waifu?
>>20112939I like it, really good job on the colouring.Nice and shooty, too, not lacking in Dakka.
>>20113093i dont think so. seems to be more of an ork mascot or something. i dont get it myself, maybe its trying to make orks cute
>>20113093I guess you could say that.>>20113077Nice concept, looks more mechanic style to mine>>20113101Thanks, I do like how it turned out, though it could use more of a mechanic look to it.
This is aching for more fanart.It has everything that makes a good waifu/chan character happen - female, cute, and not too hard to draw.Plus, if the OP picture is accurate, there's also dem thighs.
>>20113153Just add in a tank top and oilstained pants.
>>20113126It was spawned from tg derailing a shitty fetish thread by introducing orks.Everything is better once you introduce orks.
>>20113178Damn, why is /tg/ the only board where derails actually IMPROVE a thread?
Did the OP drawfag ever return?
Da luckiest ork!
>>20113229Dat blue grot!
For those who missed it, the original thread is archived here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/20106572/Be sure to give it a vote here (if you enjoyed it): http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html
>>20113212Other then me and the guy who posted >>20113077 the one who drew the op one has not dropped back in from my knowledge
>>20113237Da blue grot ain't da one whose lucky, da mekboy dat got 'er is da one whose lucky. Blue's betta wit' a spanner dan most o' da boyz!
>>20113249Interesting.I'd just been wondering since he said he'd come back.All the art has ben great.
>>20113254She's going to need a consistent look though, with a fair few people making art, we are going to have a clash of ideas.
>>20113273for a look, if there were a middle ground between these three images, i think that would be perfect. oh. and perhaps a tiny orky lower jaw. need to ork up that face. ORK IT UP.>>20109304>>20112939>>20113077
>>20113273So long as it's nothing like what happened with the names again...
>>20113298Yeah, hopefully it doesnt go that way.>>20113297Sounds like a plan, but I dont know about the orkish jaw though, I think a face one like my coloured version might be a good version for that sort of thing.
>>20113254No, another drawfag said he would.
>>20113298The names thing was just one asspained guy who wanted to make it his own.For me, as nice as the other pictures have been, the OP picture is canon. It just fits so well.
Would a Tau ACTUALLY be useful for doing tech things?
>>20113346Maybe a bit, to provide new, unconventional ideas of how to make things work.
>>20113346at least as much as any spanner-wielding grot
>>20109304I want those thighs in my life
>>20113337Yeah I like the OP picture because it seems to capture the feel that the character has got as well as the original idea.
>>20113337I like it too, the hat really adds to it, however, adding bits of the other art might help, like >>20113077 with the little drone and cleaner look, or >>20112939 for it's crazy guns, metal jaw thing ect. But it's really up for debate, I have no problem having a go at the art piece again to make it a little better.
>>20113384Well she can have various bits and pieces that she wears or doesn't wear from picture to picture.Nothing says she must only have one look or set of gubbinz
Does anyone know how to add pictures to a wiki?http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Blue
>>20113392Exactly.Ork stuff isn't known for being made for the long term, so she'd wear a variety of different things.
inb4 someone tries to shoehorn her into the tabletop game with some weird and probably broken rules
>>20113394Got to sign up for the wiki I believe.>>20113392I can agree with that, I guess its more to the general style of it then anything else.
>>20113407I would model her as a grot oiler for my Mek but I think that's about it.Maybe see about modeling her to sit on his shoulder like the OP pic
Wait, does she have a squig as a pet?2kawaii4me
>>20113441Im sure she does, or a modified drone, whichever fits the mood.I also think she could have some sort of salvaged crisis suit that's had some heavy ork modifications. Might be something to draw
>>20113077The gun drone should be piloted by a Squig.
>>20113457That would be both hilarious and sad at the same time. Thinking about the little guy trying to move it with only it's feet or mouth.
>>20113468I am liking the idea of her having the squig drone flying about with dakka mounted on it crashing into things so it is dented and has spiky bits to take advantage of it.It rarely if ever hits anything with the shoota but it is loud, shoots fast and is proppa orky.
>>20113539Would it be flying with anti-grav stuff, or like a helicopter?
>>20113554Like a kopta, of course.
>>20113558Naturally.So, a spiky, squig controlled kopta-drone with dakka on it? But what could it be called?
>>20113558And rockets, for when you need to go fast
>>20113588>But what could it be called?God, not another naming clusterfuck
>>20113590Heh, that's a funny image to me for some reason. A squig scooting about on a little orky drone
>>20113633She just calls it squig or mr squig.She picked up simple naming habits from the orks
>>20113633How about something like squid disks? nice and simple.And heres a quick sketch of one cruising along
>>20113676>Mr SquigI like it.>>20113682Looks great, a great sidekick.
>>20113682>DAT pictureMy sides cannot take much more.The expression just makes it
>>20113682I can't look at that picture and not think of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V92OBNsQgxU
Damn niggas, this character is a lot more fleshed out than it was when I left last night.
If she WAS put onto the tabletop, what rules would she have?
>>20113761theres no situation where she WOULD be on the battlefield
>Take something from 40k>Make it female and cutesy>Draw loads of pictures>Get bored of character>Repeat with something new>/tg/ in charge of originality
>>20113682Should I throw the "squig drone" thing into the wiki?
>>20113890Give me a bit and ill have a coloured version up and running, or use this, since the lineart is more refined.
>>20113890Probably a good idea.
>>20113903I'll wait for a coloured version, makes sense.We agreed on Mr Squig?Also, I gave the wiki a bit of a fiddle: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Blue
>>20113903Maybe when you colour it you could make the blades look like they're spinning
does this sort of thing happen a lot on /tg/?
>>20113990Did the best I could with the blades spinning, but I make the rockets look like they are active.
>>20114064Absolutely love it, hold on while I upload it to the wiki and add a section about Mr Squig.
>>20114064That is brilliant>captcha drawings uuouesYes captcha that is awesome
>>20114063Though I am only just watching more and more /tg/ threads, I think it happens a fair bit, though how good ideas happen in odd places, like this one.
Updated again: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Blue>>20114101I figure this sort of thing happens when the optimum number of drawfags, writefags, and people with an imagination grasp onto an idea.The fact it came from a shitty fetish thread makes it even better.
>>20114121All the best tg creations came from derailment in one way or another.
Well whaddya know, /v/ likes it: >>>/v/149206681>>20114224I guess that's true. Seems a bit weird, but it's nice knowing the best things come from the worst places.
>>20114236Man, it makes me feel all good inside to see everyone liking it.And never be surprised when things like that happen, the greatest of ideas can come from the strangest of places. I remember discussing a meta team for a /co/ project that worked under a pizza place for laughs, then it's now slowly becoming a proper thing.
>>20114302>Man, it makes me feel all good inside to see everyone liking it.What's not to like?Orks, female tau, likeable characters, good backstory, and dem hips. It's the perfect 40k waifu medley.
>>20114224Same way as war increases technological progression
Well, this thread has slowed down a lot.I should write inept fanfiction.
>>20114572I would draw more if it wasnt midnight where I am and I have uni to go to later in the morning. So I think ill head off and hunt the new thread down if there is one, good luck with the writing.
>Oi, Blue. Wot cha mukkin about wif?>Oh, I found this wrecked Earth Caste Builder and I thought I'd supe it up, and make it Orkier!>How's ya gunna make dat thing Orky?!>Well...I thought I'd add..um...teeth to it...and some bigger guns? It can also help me build!>So...it'z like a flyin' gretchin?>Yeah, but with the firing power of a Nob!>Zog me...keep up da good work, Blue!
>>20114600If there is a new thread, I'll be sure to make it obvious.
>>20114653Blue is kind of overpowered.A mekboy, but with an imagination and actual technical skill.
>>20114668exactly why theres more to it than lel moe tau wit orkz XD
When are Orkz ever like this except when directly referencing the Orkz themselves. How Orkz see themselves:>oi oi quit mukkin' abutt n get da lootz, dakka, and waaagh!How everyone else sees Orkz:>Orkz burning people alive, roasting small childern on spits, smashing civlians into giblets, and throwing severed space marine arms at people.Truly the saying is proof."When you're crazy, the only sane person in your world is you."Closer to canon would probably be roasted waifu tau. inb4 vorefetishists
>>20114702What?I can't understand what you're trying to say.
>>20114702They think she's a gretchin though, so the worst she'll get is her ass kicked.
>>20114702You do realise they take slaves right?It wouldn't be a kawaii moefest but they could still tell a tau to make some shells.
>>20114720This.They initially thought she was a gretchin, and later on, although it's fairly clear she isn't, she's under the wing of a pretty important Mekboy, so none of them fuck with her.
>>20114702Orks are basically /b/. To themselves, they're wacky and random and like a laugh. To everyone who has to deal with them during an invasion, they're hell-spawned monsters bent on the destruction of everything your culture ever held dear just because they can.
You know...I could see the more unothodox Orks actually doing thing.She builds better than grots, she's smarter than grots and she's blue so she's lucky, they'd have no reason to krump her if she's like a Mek's best spanner.
>>20114756Does blue mean luck to da orks?
>>20114702I quite clearly remember a Warboss of the Bad Moons actually instead of enslaving people used them as actual workers, paying them and providing incentives to work as well as a few beatings.He also spoke good imperial gothic.
>>20114766Yep, Deathskulls paint themselves Blue so they have more luck in finding good parts to steal.
>Oi blue wut you doin'?>Well um...boss, I was looking at your "Rokkit Launchas" and->And roight proppa dey is>Yes....'proppa'. I was trying to modify some Fire Caste Cluster Missiles to->Oi wut you on about?>*sigh* The Missiles shoot missiles boss>So youze sayin' da dakka shoots dakka?>*sigh* Yes boss>Dats so zoggin beautiful
>>20114773Huh.So really, it genuinely isn't that unbelievable that something like this could happen.
We need more stories guys. Instead of arguing her fucked or not fucked status, we should be expanding on her.
>>20114784There is a Warhammer printed comic where an Ork nob takes a human as a lucky charm because he was covered in green goop and he thought it was a tall grot.a Tau is more useful and easily more worthy as a lucky charm.And remember, things are Orky if the boss says they are. As much as alot of big bad Warbosses say, they would all have had their favorite grot of squig sometime!
So, given everything we know about her, how would she work on the tabletop?Given how blue she is, there's clearly something to do with luck there, and her skill with a spanner would be useful for aiding vehicles.Mr Squig, her drone, would be good for any attack, as he can zip around and has some (horribly inaccurate) dakka. Plus, if all else fails he can just crash into people with his spikes.
>>20114793Help write one then. It's not like there's anyone in charge.
>>20114812use mek standard, half the stats, add in some luck factor and give her Dakka-drones.
>>20114819I did, I'm really good at it though. I'll try for another one in a minute though.>>20114653
>>20114835>I'm really good at it though.Nice to know you're confident in your abilities.
>>20114841I meant to put not...
>>20114847I guessed, I was just joking.I'm considering trying to flesh out her story a little, in a bit.
>>20114794>There is a Warhammer printed comic where an Ork nob takes a human as a lucky charm because he was covered in green goop and he thought it was a tall grot.Yeah, it was also shit. The only thing Black Library has done that's worth reading concerning Orks, is Deff Skwadron. Everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) else is shit. Orks get used more often than not as the 'Go-To Punching Bag Villain'. Stories they're in usually read like -generic bad-guy villain race- renamed to Orks.
>>20114859Good ol' killboy.
>>20114859Which is kind of wrong, if you ask me.I don't really think Orks are villains at all.
>>20114905Which is why Deff Skwadron is the only thing worth reading. Because low and behold, it treats them like Orks.
QUESTION: Would the fact she is a Tau mean she acts like a moralfag even among the Orks?
>>20114859There is a short in fear the alien about an ork from his perspective which is readable but sadly they are largely ignored otherwise.There is mention of orks who don't act like /b/ tards but they are rare and generally stomped by orks that do because they have bigger bands behind themGW does keep an open policy on their canon though and they do say everything is canon so that their fans can do retarded things like this if we want.
People are free to add to the wiki, by the wayhttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Blue
Since Tau are usual devoid of any latent psyker ability, wouldn't a Tau fuck up the Ork Waaagh?Not entirely sure how that works, since I don't play the Warhams and only really know what I learn from /tg/.
>>20114972I don't think it would act negatively towards it, I think it just sort of wouldn't be there. So she woudn't add to it, but she wouldn't get rid of it either.However, since the Orks believe she's a mechanic genius, ANY of the vehicles she puts together will work (probably).
>>20114931The political behaviour of the Tau is largely dominated by the Ethereals and Water Caste.I'm not sure Earth Caste care that much for the morality of their doing.They build stuff. I see no reason why they should think a lot about the implications of what their creations are used for.
>>20115007Ah fair enough then.Makes me wonder what would happen if she got "saved" by the tau later in life.
>"Oi, Blue! Today ah'm gunna show ya' how to krump loike a real Ork!">"B-but...I thought I'd just be building...">"Wot do ya' think'll 'appen if some humiez or sumfing come and attack camp?! 'Ow are ya' gunna defend yurself?!">"Well...I've been planning to set up Fire Caste gun drones around camp...so the "humiez" won't be able to get to me.">"Well...you can do dat, but I'z still gunna teach ya' how to krump proppaly!">"Alright, I guess...">The Nob then proceeds to demonstrate the several methods of "Krumpin'" to Blue by beating a group of Gretchin to a pulp.>"Ya git it now?!">"Y-yes sir...">"Good, now ya' ready!">"T-thanks sir...">The Nob leaves and Blue goes back to fixing up the drones, mortified of what she just witnessed.
>>20115039>Implyin' afta livin' wit da Orks all 'er life she wouldn't be krumpin da gretchin 'erselfAnd don't forget Mr Squig. >>20114064
>>20114995From a mechanic's standpoint, I think Blue might go a little crazy trying to fix any Ork tech. None of it really works the way its supposed to and some of it may just be lumps of metal or a paint job.
>>20115055Well, maybe this takes place a week or so into her living with them? I don't know man...
>>20115057She's grown up with it for most of her life though, so she'll be used to it being apparently impossible. i IMAGINE.
>>20115057>From a mechanic's standpoint, I think Blue might go a little crazy trying to fix any Ork tech. Most of it is a confusing jumble of redundancies and wires.FTFY. Orks do not clap your hands if you believe. that's a misconception amongst /tg/.
>>20115055Well, the first two or three incidents of sudden violence may frighten her.But once those fuckers start making off with her tools, all bets are off.
>>20115125Because it's honestly more interesting and understandable than actual 40k fluff, which, much like Ork tech, is a random jumble on contradictory shit that should not work.
>>20115057I don't think she would have that much trouble since the orks would think she fixes it good and proppa so she would in fact manage to fix them.This is after she has shown her ability to make stuff and add moar dakka
>>20115129>By the way Boss, I thought I'd let you know that I caught Gretchin trying to make off with my spanner>Where iz da little grot! I'll kill 'im!>Oh, don't worry about it boss, it's not a problem>You ain't goin' soft on me, are ye' Blue?>Maybe you should ask the Gretchin that, boss. *Holds up a chopped off head*>Dat's ma li'l Blue!On that note, do we think that the spanner she was found with at the beggining of her story would have stayed with her, as a sort of lucky charm? Especially since she's holding it up in the OP pic.
>>20115211Old Faithful has many uses.
This has the makings of a very moe anime...Adorable little blue girl trying her damndest to help these big green brutes who barely acknowledge her. Shoving her around and berating her when she gets in their way. She gets those big watery eyes and the Ork stop for a second and ruffles her hair an tells her more gently to stop muckin' about.
>>20115125They do have tech that shouldn't work aside from them believing it should work because they still do have the gestalt psychic field that makes things work better if enough orks believe in it.After all red ones do go fasta for orks and there is no rational reason for that since they have mention in the codec that two identical vehicles will have different speeds if one is painted red and the other isn't.
>>20115192>>20115057That's not how it works.
So wait.If enough Orks BELIEVE Blue is the best mechanic ever, will it end up being a self fulfilling prophecy?Blue creates a good thing, more Orks believe she's great at it, so the next things work really well, repeat.
>>20115263You may be on to something here...
>>20115245>Anime>on 4chanYou know what? I'm preparing something special for you.http://www.endlessvideo.com/watch?v=t99cOvJY1fg&start=0m19s&end=0m31s
>>20115230>They do have tech that shouldn't work aside from them believing it should work because they still do have the gestalt psychic field that makes things work better if enough orks believe in it.No. All their tech works. It's just shoddily built and ill-maintained. The psychic field is not wonder make-believe Force, it's WD-40. It keeps their tech working despite horrific levels of abuse, and otherwise unwieldiness or poor maintenance. All their technology is usable outside their race by other species. It's just more prone to jamming, or misfire.>After all red ones do go fasta for orks and there is no rational reason for that since they have mention in the codec that two identical vehicles will have different speeds if one is painted red and the other isn't.The Red Wunz go faster doesn't mean a Trukk with no engine will run. It also doesn't mean a trukk with a cardboard cut-out of an engine will run. It means an otherwise working trukk painted red will go *a little* bit faster. It's a couple points of increase in horsepower. And is also explained (in your same source, btw) that this could be instinctual of the Orks building the vehicle or working on it that if it is red, then it should be upgraded or made to be faster.The only time Ork tech is ever described as 'having no logical reason for working' in canon fluff, was when a tech-priest looked at it. And we're talking the same order who doesn't understand how Tau tech, or Eldar Tech could possibly work, due to the lack of purity seals, proper prayers, no blessing from the Omnisiah, etc. In short, it's like the Catholic Church saying "iPhones work from the power of belief only", simply because their God didnt tell them how to make it.
>>20115284animu does not belong on /tg/. Faggot
>>20115308>The Red Wunz go faster doesn't mean a Trukk with no engine will run.Nobody's saying it does.What you're saying, though, is that the Ork's psychic shit doesn't even fucking exist. Which is ignoring the fluff entirely. Regardless, take it to another thread. There's an Orks thread here, about that exact topic: >>20114426
>>20115230> Oi, wot's ya doin' wif dat red paint?> A little experiment to try enhance this gun I constructed.> But dat paint is fo' da trucks, ta make 'em go fasta.> Exactly. And that is why I will try and coat the firing mechanism in red. To enhance the rate of fire.> Wut?> Make da shoota go fasta, fo' mo' dakka.> Oi dun fink 'dis will work.> Why wouldn't it?> Yo' can't see da red in dere.
>>20115263probably not. Let's not make her a Mary Sue. She doesn't need to be as overpowered as Xeno.She already has a squig in a drone named "Mr Squig" when Xeno had a scarab that used to be a drone called "Mr Drone". That, and their basic concept, are enough similitudes.
>>20115230the red ones dont go faster because they are red,they are red because they go faster.
>>20115308Except the red ones rule states there is no difference between a red and non red vehicle just the orks make it work better.It isn't taken to the retarded extremes that tg likes to joke about but they do influence things whether it is because the field pushes things to work better, influences the orks to work harder or plain just makes them luckier.The 40k setting is one where belief has visible effects. The chaos gods can do things because of the belief they get from their various means lets them do impossible shit, the faith of the sororitas combined with whatever latent psyker ability all humans have let them perform their acts of faithJust about nothing in 40k follows real rules or makes any sense, orks least of all and that is and has always been a large part of the settingLike it or not your argument has less grounding in the setting than mine.
>>20115380>whatever latent psyker ability all humans havethat is to say none.The psyker behind Imperial miracles is the Emperor himself, channeling his power through the faith of random people.
>>20115344>>20115308I'm not really well versed in the ass-backwards retardation that is 40k fluff, but 1 minute of searching and I turned up this.http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Orks#Ork_TechnologySpecifically, this line:>in many cases the only reason it works at all is because of the Orks' minor psychic powers. This means that if enough Orks think it will work, it usually will. Many a Techmarine has opened an Ork slugga to find it to just be a box with bolts and bits of metal in it. Yeah, Orkz just kind of make shit up and it works because they are magic, green soccer hooligans. Stop pretending they don't.>>20115325And you.. Go be a faggot somewhere else. You're being so fucking stupid that its embarrassing.
>>20115403warhammer 40k wiki is made by people like you who barely read the fluff. Their article on the rainbow warriors is pure /tg/ fanfluff, for example. Regardless, there is indeed that one example in which a guardsman tried to use a shoota, and it simply fell apart as he pressed the trigger. Which means that, yes, sometimes, ork tech just doesn't work.
>>20113682Mr Squig's Wild Ride?
>>20115263Possibly. Bosses get bigger the more boys they are the boss of - so at least some of orkish physical capability is based on either self-belief or the belief of other orks. Since all orks believe they are the greatest thing to ever krump a git, I'd say having boys that believe in you is one of the key factors
>>20115403This guy states that he has no knowledge of 40k fluff, insults it and then defends animu.When do you realize youre on the wrong board?
>>20115364>>20115380Oi you lot, quite muckin' about. Just punch the go-fasta button and be dome with it ya gits.
>>20115441orks growing when they're numerous is not fueled by the belief in that fact. It's simply that the ork metabolism is naturally fueled by the energy of the WAAAGH. It even works on samples of ork cells.
>>20115435It's as good a source as any, really.Warhammer apparently has lots of different authors, all of whom ignore and contradict each other entirely, making up new facts and rules that don't make any sense in context to the other fluff, that didn't make much sense either.I imagine that trying to figure out what is truly cannon and what it actually means is a lot like arguing interpretations of the bible. Inevitably, someone is going to start claiming that one part doesn't count, but another does, and someone is going to disagree and says that one part totally does count..
>>20115449In fact /tg/ has a pretty fine taste in animé and manga.
>>20115403>citing a fan-made site, with a fan-made misconception about a tech-priest's findings>Many a Techmarine has opened an Ork slugga to find it to just be a box with bolts and bits of metal in it. Jesus fuck you idiot, there's not even a [citation] for that! It's like you happily believe what's on a wiki when there's no source provided.If you opened an AK-47 and found a jumble of wires, bolts, and multiple firing pins AROUND working components, you'd also probably be butt-frustrated enough to toss it out and say "Hurr it don't work unless by belief!" Make it doubly so if technology is religious dogma to you, and anything made by non-human hands is confusing and declared to not work.
>>20115449>Hey look guys!>I'm using 40k reaction images on /tg/!>That means my opinion is law!>No seriously! You have to listen to me!You couldn't be more of a faggot, even if we caught you sucking a million dicks.
>>20115470I guess this raises the question: Is Blue cunningly brutal, or brutally cunning?
>>20115486>It's as good a source as any, really.a unofficial fanwiki that doesnt cite sources and features fanfiction out the ass?
>>20115512she's not very brutal, and not very cunning either.
>>20115486>It's as good a source as any, really.No it's not. It's not even made by the right fans. If you want real Ork fluff, and debunking of the misconceptions, go read the fucking older codices and check out The-Waaagh's forums. Don't go to a fan-site, written mostly by people pulling shit out of their ass based upon the crack-pot fucking theories they read on /tg/ (over and over again).
>>20114702They mistook her for a grot at first, so they treated her with >oi oi quit mukkin' abutt n get da lootz, dakka, and waaagh!instead of >Orkz burning people alive, roasting small childern on spits, smashing civlians into giblets, and throwing severed space marine arms at peopleOnce she proved her worth, they didn't much care either way because, hey, more dakka for less work.
>>20115512I would say competently working.
>>20115505dude, you really need to get laid or something. You have a lot of anger.
>>20115495That analogy is.. really bad.The example states a techmarine, as in someone who should know how a basic projectile shooting weapon could reasonably be constructed. He opens an Ork shoota and finds a box with bolts in it in nothing else. No spring, no firing pin, no controlled explosive propellant.Not the same thing as someone who has no idea what they're doing tearing open a device they don't understand.But, in either case, fan-made wiki, so whatever.
>>20115538Exactly.You think they'll just kill one of their best mechanics purely because they eventually she realises she's not a gretchin? Course not.Plus, as said already, she's under the wing of one of the big meks
>>20115560>>20115537>>20115525Hur Hur look at us tearing into one person because we are butthurt. Look guys, its an image board. He's not gonna have 1st degree sources and a work cited page. At least he went to a wiki as opposed to just making shit up or googling it.
>>20115468...so they grow based on psychic energy. Which is belief.If it's unfocused, why do only the bosses grow? Shouldn't every greenskin be huge in a Waagh if proximity to other orks is all it took?
>>20115560>The example states a techmarine, as in someone who should know how a basic projectile shooting weapon could reasonably be constructed.But they don't. They treat technology as a fucking religion. They don't make 'new' tech, they use STCs entirely and refuse to adapt or make changes. In 10,000 years since the herey, they have barely invented a few things to set themselves slightly apart from the renegade legions of the Horus Heresy. And you honestly think these religious nutjobs seriously know how tech built by other races are supposed to work!? Eldar tech is purely psychic. As in 100% so, built from wraithbone. They don't even acknowledge it as being possible. And they don't even consider Tau tech on their level or possibly working by anything other than 'xenos witchcraft' .
>Blue thread devolves into Ork tech argument.Take it to the Ork thread already, shit.
>>20115623I always thought that they got bigger and stronger with every fight they've been in. Since Orks probably don't live very long in their extremely violent life style, it isn't likely that they get very big. But I suppose one exceptional ork in a while might get big enough to challenge to become a warboss.
>>20115037>Zog it, I'm da luckiest grot dat ever lived! Once I bring a whole herd o me back ta camp, dere's no way the boss's WAAAGH can fail>Now listen here, child>Th'name's T'ork ya lanky, wrinkly grot!>No one calls the Ethereal a grot y-you little...>Let it go, Shas'O, now listen here, "T'ork", you've been brainwashed by sick sick creatures, but our reeducation camps will help. They'll show you the Greater Good>Waaagh!>There's no getting through to this one, I'm afraid...>Wait, is that an echo or...oh no! Orks!>WAAAAAAGH!>Dere ya are, Blue. >Mek!>An' here I thought I wuz gonna be needin a new lucky charm.
NEW THREAD FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TALK ABOUT BLUE:>>20115677>>20115677>>20115677THREAD FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO ARGUE ABOUT ORK TECH:>>20114426>>20114426>>20114426
>>20115627But we're talking about ORKZ.They aren't revolutionary inventors who create inconceivably complex technology, for fuck's sake. These are big, dumb, angry space barbarians who use slabs of metal with handles on them that they call "choppas"Any of the other races in the 40k universe could probably figure out the basic mechanisms for Ork weaponry, but would likely find a lot of it useless because of the minor psychic abilities that hold certain parts together.
>>20115627Nah, now you're talking bullshit. By the time you reach Magos, you know what you are doing, and are in a position to make new tech. Before that? Yeah, you are not being taught why stuff works, but the higher you get up in the hierarchy, the more you actually know about the tech. The religious trappings are a form of information control, because in 40k, where you can accidentally summon a daemon by putting together an innovative new circuitboard design which could improve the efficiency of a Lasgun power pack by 6%, you do not want the unproven dicking about making new things.The Mechanicus works on new things all the time. They just do so SLOWLY and with great care before any kind of widespread dissemination. And they lose other stuff at the same time, which doesn't help.Admittedly, "Box of disconnected bolts" dude is talking crap too.
>>20115623All orks do grow.But the bigger ones stomp the littler ones and so they grow quicker, then they eventually get beaten by someone who is then the boss and their either die or they stop growing for a time.
>>20115229I'm sorry, but I never want to see animu orks. Ever.
>>20115694>They aren't revolutionary inventors who create inconceivably complex technology, for fuck's sake.Yes they are. They build Lifta-Droppas, and Shokk Attack Guns, and employ man-packed Force Fields that cover a wider area than any kind of man-packed force-field created by another race. If you go even further back into the era of Rogue Trader, they also build fucking Force-Field Generators AS A WEAPON to encase enemies in and have their weapons reflect back and kill themselves with (also known as "Bubble Chukkas"). For fuck's sake we're talking about the same race that will build a rocket loaded with a powerful (but unstable) Force Field Generator and launch it into the midst of an enemy army to send out force field waves and grind opponents into the ground, or at least scatter them and cause disorder. They call these missiles "Pulsa Rokkits".
>>20115731Don't scroll up then...
>>20115769Animu restyled orks is one thing, but I just wouldn't want to see an anime full of ORIGINAL CHARACTER DO NOT STEAL orks. I can't see it ever looking all that great. Hell, even the anime styled Sisters just look completely off to me. But that's just me and I respect your differing opinions.
>>20115007The Earth Caste's Rail Rifles used to have 'Gets Hot!' when used with Target Locks, though it was because feedback could fry the shooter's brain, rather than the gun actually overheating.The only thing the Earth Caste engineers cared about when a Firewarrior fried his brains on the testing grounds was that they disappointed the Etherial. The Firewarrior? Fuck 'em.
>>20115902thats entirely made up
>>20115959Nope. The White Dwarf's prototype Railrifle Pathfinders did actually get Get Hot if you used their Target Locks, but the Codex version removed that (probably because nobody wanted to buy wannabe sniper rifles that Get Hot).The Fire Caste Shas'ui overseeing the test got might pissed at the Earth Caste engineer though, until the Etherial calmed him down. Regardless, the engineer was more conscerned about the Etherial's disappointment than the dead Firewarrior.
