It’s the “big brother companion” to the already announced Gretchinz. It’ll have new Ork kits, previewing a wider range to be released with the codex and after.
New kits supposedly include:
- boyz and
It’s out next for 40k releases, after the just announced GSC Vs Space Wolf box, but before GSC codex and new minis
New Buggiez and Trakkz are long overdue. Those Models were looking dated back before the turn of the century. On the other hand, hopefully the Trukk and Bike kits just get a sprue re-cut with more options added. The basic designs there are great, they just get kind of same-y when you have a bunch of them.
Apparently this will be a Japanese release only? Maybe it will be just for the boxed game and we will still get new models.
I did notice the Japanese text on the box. But the Warhammer Community article on the Tooth & Claw boxed set had some bits talking about the Orks racing around the wastes of Vigilus before they managed to get through the shields protecting the hives. That kind of made me think it will eventually get a wider release.

The buggie they showed looked awesome – perfect for Speed Freeks.
I am, however, hesitant on a revival of Gorkamorka. I love that we’re seeing all these old games come back, but I fear GW is going to start stretching themselves thin again and need to let some revivals die.
While I loved Gorkamorka, I can’t imagine it was a big seller for them, not compared to BFG or Necromunda. Maybe this will be a one-off.
Much like a number of the other games I imagine it will have some core rules to it but the real selling point will be the new miniatures. They usually end up a whole load cheaper.
