"All Orks are violent and barbaric, but there is one amongst their untold masses who is feared above all others. More than a mere warlord, he is the self-proclaimed prophet of the Ork gods thenselves. He is the great green embodiment of all the brutal strength of Gork - the most belligerent and ferocious of them all. He also boasts the ingenious cunning of Mork - for none are cannier or make craftier plans of war than he. He is the overlord of the greatest greenskin crusade of recent times, with tides of Orks at his command. He is Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka, and when he storms into battle, the whole galaxy trembles".
Artwork is all taken from the 2014, "Waaagh! Ghazghkull : A Codex : Orks supplement". During the 7th edition of Warhammer 40,000 GW started doing the codexes in Hardback which was a great move in my opinion, made those books last so much longer, especially when lugging them around for games.
They supplemented the main Codexes with well....supplements. Not all Factions got them, but amongst the selection (but no means all of them) were some great books, Farsight, Sentinels of Terra (Imperial fists) and this Orky tome. The art is here shows the ultimate Warlord to be a fearsome foe indeed. For me hes one of the most iconic characters throughout 40k's publishing history.
