How do?

New info up on Warhammer Community, with the promise of more to come.

Warhammer Community]
As you’ll have no doubt seen in the recent Warhammer Preview Online, followers of a new greenskin ‘subkultur’ have arrived to bring their own brand of krumpin’ to the galaxy. Called the Beast Snaggas, these master squig-breeders ride to war on their ferocious red steeds,* kicking, biting, and stabbing anything within their reach.

Just because they eschew the trukks and bikes of their Speed Freek cousins’ armies, doesn’t mean the Beast Snaggas are averse to using some of the local Mekboyz’s creations. Think of them as pro-squig, rather than anti-thinkin’. After all, it’s rare to find an Ork who wouldn’t appreciate how you can make a humble spear louder and killier by adding rocket boosters to it.

Their appreciation for ‘da old ways’, and their disregard for more complex Orky technology, leads many of the Snakebite clan to become Beast Snaggas, although their ilk can be found across the entire spectrum of Ork society.** Even a no-nonsense Goff can look at a squighog’s shockingly large teeth and figure out how best to apply them to some poor git’s face.

The Beast Snagga boyz themselves are hulking mountains of muscle even by regular Ork standards – spending a lifetime chasing down and grappling with ravenous beasts breeds particularly hardy individuals. Even their Gretchin underlings are a smidge braver than usual,*** as those affectionately dubbed ‘saddlegitz’ hold on for dear life and take whatever swings they can.

Stay tuned to learn more about the savage Beast Snaggas and the ingenious ways they use giant, red mouth-monsters. In the meantime, prepare for the Waaagh! by grabbing some of their Speed Freek rivals in a Boomdakka Snazzwagon or Shokkjump Dragsta. You can even bridge the gap between the two subkulturs with a Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy – although knowing the Orks, they’re just as likely to fight both sides.

Don’t forget, there’s a wealth of Orky stories for you to brush up on too. Just ask Makari – he’ll tell you exactly what you should be reading right now.

* Being born red means they make naturally fast mounts, you see.

** If such a thing really exists.

*** Which isn’t saying much.

I mean, it's not too outlandish for 40k. No models, but warboars and cyboars have been a thing in ork lore forever. The only real difference is that we've got squig boars, and there are 1000s of different squig varieties (including four legged squiggoths). Also given the recent GW boar creatures are these guys, I think we're lucky, all things considered.

No, absolutely. I'm aware of cyboars but there is not enough cyber in those boars for my taste. 40k orks are scrap mechanics and those look a bit too clean to me. Nothing a bit of kitbashing couldn't fix mind you, but then again, we have bikes and trikes to fill that particular niche already. Maybe they will make more sense in the larger context of the other beast snaggas.

Where did they say it's an army?

The article today points towards them being part of Orks, not their own schtick.

I like em personally, because I'm always game for squig units since they're pretty underrepresented in 40k. However, I hope this doesn't restrict them from properly updating the last few kits that need a plastic makeover in the Ork range (looking at you deffkoptas, kommandos, and tankbustas).

Also, I feel bad for IG because we're basically getting Ork rough riders while IG's (barring DKoK) got squatted.

These big soft details are really giving off a Fisher-Price. Hope GW manages to pick up the ball with the rest of these, kinda like the units teased in the trailer, but not super hopeful...

That's why I'm saying it sounds more like an expansion to the Ork range rather than its own army and asking for anything about them specifically calling out them as a new army.

I don’t play Orks but I think these look like great fun. Also bodes well for Ork players as any teases of new units seem to indicate a new Codex soon. (And Brian from Tabletop Titans dropped a hint around the time of the first reveal of these guys that he was painting up a new Ork army and that he only starts things when there’s a reason...)

From page 124 of Codex: Orks:

If your army is Battle-forged, all <CLAN> units in ORK Detachments (excluding those in Super-heavy Auxiliary Detachments) gain a Clan Kultur, so long as every unit in that Detachment is from the same clan.

A subculture of Orks includes: Speed Freaks, Fly Boyz (Often a subculture of Speed Freaks), Stormboyz, Burna Boyz... Typically if an Ork takes something too far, it's probably a subculture of some sort.

They're probably the same kind of expansion as KoS is for Orks.

The model looks very...weird? Did they let a bunch of newbie sculptors do some orks, cause it's strangely soft and blobby.

All these terrible models for 40k is certainly easier on my bank account. They really haven't shown a single 40k model to get excited about this year.

I really don't know what they're doing with Orks.

Is this it's own Codex? Is this the new release for the Ork Codex?

I'm not sure how edgy people were expecting a squig unit to be. Other than the usual washed out feeling and cartoony paint job the studio chose to give it, the model looks great to me.

Can anyone who hates this point to a sculpt they actually like? Maybe my tastes are just different. In Sisters/DEldar releases it seems like it's just 'not Victoria's Secret model enough for me', sentiment wise.

But I like this boy, the face on particular is dynamic as opposed to static. So is the squig, though I think the photo isnt doing the leg proportions justice.

Maybe people just don't like the entire concept. The model still looks terrible for me though, just not my style at all for 40k.

I am so excited for all these! Give me ALL THE SQUIGS!!!

I think they look amazing. I am glad the orks are keeping things a bit silly. I can't wait to see what other people are doing with their paint jobs.

This is a unit I always thought they should have. I loved the boar riders, but it made more sense to me that they would ride squigs, not boars(in 40k). The lore has always said they have squigs of all types from food up to beasts of burden and beasts of war.

By Mork n Gork,I can't wait to see what else they come out with, and I am PRAYING they let us use basic squigs as a troop type.

Probably a supplement linked force to the be folded into the main Ork Codex? The mention in the article that even a Goff can become a Beast Snagga suggests they’ll work within the existing clan system?

I'm guessing the units will be universal, with beast snaggas being a new sub culture option like pyromaniaks or tinheads with the psychic awakening stuff all rolled into the main book (and hopefully most kustom jobs rolled into the relevant units)

It's too much Age of Sigmar Savage Orruk looking for me. Not enough Ork.

It's almost as though the sculptors were doing some AoS stuff and couldn't make much of a separation in their heads from what they were doing for AoS and what they're doing for 40k.


Suppose they'd look OK in a Snakebite army, if that's still a thing or is going to be a thing again.
