Someone just getting into 40k lore here.
Do orks have any robots? Not mechs, but thinking machines. They don't seem the type but they're orks, so I have to ask.
The closest would be the killa kans and deffdreads and mekadreads and stuff. Those are operated by a grot or ork brain, so theyre more like dreadnoughts more than anything. But no robots with AI or logic engines or anything like that.
Somewhere in the vastness of the galaxy, a lonely Mek's two functioning brain cells bump together. He looks at the junk all around his workshop; at the janky prostheses built for the Dokz; at the heavy shootas built for the Gitz; at the Thinky-Bobz built for the Air Boyz, and he has a revelation.
He will krump his loneliness.
He begins to build. Bolts are hammered, wires are soldered, plates are welded, brew is swigged. Nights turn to days, days to weeks. No-one has seen Bugginz Zobgobba for ages. Rumors swirl in the rest of the camp, that the Mek is building something... Big.
Finally, his work complete, Bugginz steps back. The hulking frame looms high, like a scrapyard that dreams to be a man. Bugginz reaches for the switch, that will bring his monster to life.
Several fuzes burst instantly, as the machine surges with power. Fans hum, lights flicker, pistons jerk and shudder. The machine rises awkwardly, on legs with too many knees. Limbs laden with ordinance wave at the air, to find balance. An array of diodes flicker with energy, eventually resolving into a child's image of a smiling face. The machine turns its illuminated head to Bugginz, and roars through a mis-matched set of vocalizers:
"KONNICHI WA, BUGGINZ-SAN"
>And his name is
pinokyo I wanna see an ork version of Chappie now
They used to have tinboyz.
Basically mechanical caricatures of enemies.
>fascinating picture depicting the changes in real life weapons as they move away from being made by the thousands in factories by drug cartels requiring heavy firepower which they are not able to get their hands on
>>lol dakka get it haha
fuck you your picture is way more interesting than your dumbass question
What >>44608624 said is right: technically Orks only really had cyborgs, nothing approaching Abominable Intelligence.
Tin Boyz aren't in the current canon.
Any mechanical monstrosity is piloted either like a mech or by being directly wired into a grot or boy's brain.
closest is the runtbot, and that's remote-controlled by a grot riding on the shoulder.
Pinorkyo- the robot who wants to become one of dem real boyz.
Good end: He becomes an ork after a Dok decides to replace someork's brain with his CPU.
Bad end: He gets captured by the Mechanicus and/or Ordo Xenos.
They were, if I remember my Epic correctly. It wasn't precised in the fluffy parts if it was total remote control or just them being completely obedient to instructions, though.
There was a one turn delay for the order to reach them, it was pretty fun.
Brazil's cartels not being able to get their hands on real military-grade weapons?
Larga essa erva maluco, tá te fazendo mal.
Shame on you /tg/. Our criminals built a seven-barreled shotgun and you post that thing?
Depends on the era of canon. Some old books had a Guardsman pick up an Ork Shoota that was just used to shred some dudes, only to discover it didn't work. When they broke it open to look inside, it was just a tube with wires and a trigger.
The most recent Ork dex has it more of an inborn Mek SIANTZ than WAAAGH!! field fuckery.
I take my canon mixed, because the story of the krew of Trukk Boyz who ran out of gas, then took off after the Nob reminded them he filled up before they left is the best thing ever--even if new Trukk rules are dogshit.
see, the gas one is funny because we're all familiar with squeezing another mile out of the steering wheel to creep to a gas station.
The tube with a trigger is just retarded. I love the idea of orks making shit that shouldn't work effective, but I feel like it needs at least the basic mechanical function, even if it is wildly nonsensical, like the shokk attack gun.
Tinboys are awesome. Would make a fun little army.

Both of those are just fanwank, drawn - probably not even knowingly - from this fluff in the 3rd edition codex.
>Similarly, many captured Ork weapons and items of equipment should not work, and indeed do not work unless wielded by an Ork. I believe this is linked to the strong psychic aura surrounding all Orkoids and have developed the Anzion Theorem of Orkoid Mechamorphic Resonant Kinetics. I theorise that many Ork inventions work because the Orks themselves think that they should work. The strong telekinetic abilities of the Orks' subconscious somehow ensure that the machinery or weaponry functions as desired.
