    So which of the two do you prefer and why?

    Which kind of Orc do you think is better,cooler and culturally superior?Which of the two would you want for your army?

    This is probably the first of two poll threads I will make,the second being the Dwarves thread.

    Well, they are pretty similar to start with.

    In terms of Warcraft, Warhammer orcs seem to vary between Warcraft Goblins, Orcs and Ogres. But the style is much the same. I'm pretty sure Samwise Didier has been heavily inspired on Worskshop works to start with. Rumour has it Workshop ordered Blizzard to make computer games for their table-top franchises. They did, but for some reason, Workshop pulled out. The result? Starcraft and Warcraft.

    In the mean time, Workshop has taken several leaves out of Blizzards book, so it's really hard to tell who's responsible for exactly what.

    I'd call it a draw, since there are so much more similarities then differences.

    Tbh most WC Orc's would get his ass handed to him by a WH Orc.

    Anyway, I prefer WC orcs, because they go against the norm of just being plain out stupid and evil. In the WC they have a more appleaing sense of honour and what not. Plus it's more evident.

    The WH Orc do have their good points though.

    I believe that the LotR orcs would wipe out any and all orcs opposing them

    Actually no, they would get their asses handed to them on a silver plate with a sprinkling of coriander leaves on the side.

    Nah they really wouldn't overwhelm them. They would be overwhelmed themselves (The LotR one's).

    Lawl. LOTR orcs are just only good for numbers. The WC orcs will whack them with their shaman magic and the WH orcs can just aggro-ed them into oblivion. In fact, I doubt LOTR orcs can even win FR ones. :S

    LotR orcs work as a team...most of the time...unless they're hungry but if they were well fed they would be able to win

    Actually, I won't say LOTR orcs work well as a team. It really takes a powerful leader (e.g. Saruman, Sauron, Morgoth) to make them work in a cohesive team. Even then, there's this risk that they can implode one way or another if things went wrong. The LOTR orcs just can't do shit in the areas of leadership ffs.

    On the other hand, the orcs in WH and WC have proven leaders within their race to lead them. Also, take note that LOTR orcs can't do magic. WC orcs are the masters in this aspect to a certain extent plus WH orcs ain't walkovers in this area as well.

    LotR Orcs works don't work anymore more efficiently than a WH Orc, so I don't know what you're basing that on.

    Plus the WH Orc method of reproduction is stupidly efficient. The LotR Orcs would be severly outnumbered.

    Well, WH orcs really need powerful leadership to prevent implosion. That I can admit. But I did say in my previous comment that WH orcs have proven leaders within their race. Grimgor is a classic example. LOTR orcs don't have any half-decent leaders from within.

    Erm, what's the WH orc's way of reproducing btw, met?

    To foi: I don't see this happening. WH and LOTR, possible. But WC orcs a hell no. They're too noble for the shit.

    Naaah, I reckong WC would join in just for the fun of it LOL! At the end of the day, their still orcs :p

    Well I'm not quite so sure about the Fantasy version of the WH orcs (but you know they are practically the same), but the shin they shed just falls to the ground and sort of acts like a plant. Basically the skin can produce new orcs LOOL.

    Erm, I think this topic referred the WH orcs as the fantasy version, not 40k. :S
