Daily 118 – Orcs and Goblins Items Of Distinction

Orcs and Goblins Items of Distinction.

Back in episode 99 I started a new feature that I said I would return to and that was Items Of Distinction.  This is an on going feature to talk about how to get the best out of these often overlooked relics from Warhammer Lore and in this 2nd installment I will talk about another one of the of the greatest items from the history of Warhammer, The Battle Axe of The Last Waagh from the Orcs and Goblins army book.

Almost all the top pointed items to choose from have a long and decorated history going back through numerous editions of the army books and also appear in the army books of other races.

The Battle Axe Of The Last Waaagh!

Rumour has it that this is the legendary axt that will start the battle that will end the world in an unstoppable orgy of fire and slaughter.  According to Orc myth, this will come about when Warlord Ragna Da Destroyer, Gork’s (or possibly Mork’s) chosen leader of The Last Waaagh!, goes mad with an axe and destroys the whole world.  This is the famous Orcish Day of Ragnarork, and forms the basis of one od Orcdom’s ost popular and enduring campfire tales.  It remains to be seen if The Battleaxe of the Last Waaagh! is actually the instrument that will bring about this destruction.  However, there is no doubt that it is one of the most powerful magicl weapons in the Old World.

The Battle Axe of the Last Waaagh! is 100 points so needs to be carried by a lord character.  Lets discount Goblins for obvious reasons and concentrate on the Orcs.  more to the point, Black or Savage.  Both have their benefits and also their downsides.  I talk about both in the episode.  I also talk about how to best keep your Warlord alive and deliver him into combat and the tools to use to help him along the way.

    Great topic. I’ve not used it but have always thought about it.
    Any chance for a show on the Spider Banner in an all Goblin army?
