So I've often heard that once Orks touch a planet the planet is tainted because you can't totally get rid of the spores. But wouldn't burning the bodies and the surrounding areas do just that? Or what if the spores were in an area where they couldn't grow for lack of nutrients? I mean I know Orks aren't exactly your average fungus but they still need like, stuff, to live, right?

Yeah but assume that you have 16000 different landings all over the planet, some of them you aren't even aware of, and the people running the cleanup process are illiterate, inbred, traitorous, or all 3.

It's permanently tainted insofar as the cost of removal is astronomically more costly than it's worth. It's much less expensive to just repopulate the planet and keep a small garrison of soldiers to periodically cull the ork population before it gets to any sizable number.

The only group that seems to systematically remove all traces of the orks are the Biel-Tan, which is why they hate orks so much, because the removal is such a fucking pain in the ass.

Or Necrons. Cause they don't leave the spores behind with Gauss flayers.
>>55435351
Guard when on deployment do burn ork bodies, to make the fighting easier. Its simply too difficult to wipe out the entire population. After all the Orks are designed to be impossible to remove by the Old Ones.

What are the Biel-Tan? I don't play Warhammer, I just want to know how to defeat a race of sporefolk.

They are a group of space elves.

Burning is exactly what people do to contain and remove orks.

I'm not 100%, but I think Orks can grow inside space ships as well, like in a Space Hulk. Don't quote me on that since I don't have an excerpt I can quote to prove this.

Has anyone else heard this or am I just making shit up because it sounds cool in my mind?

One of the factions of eldar (space elves). They consider themselves the heirs to the old eldar empire and are trying to reclaim all the planets that were lost to other races. They fight pretty much anyone who's on old eldar land, but they hate orcs in particular because, as mentioned, purging orcs from a planet is mind-numbingly aggravating.

It looks more like the barrel of his bolter has caught fire somehow. I think he might be having a catastrophic ammo failure there.

Either that or he's shooting a stormboy out of the air in the most casual way possible.

>Old ones make orks to have no sense of fear, to have an extremely rapid form of reproduction, and not only are they extremely resilient and easily able to adapt to any environement, but they are impervious to all forms of genocide.

>they were designed specifically to fight necrons.

>How ever, the basic necron weapon can totally get rid of them.


Really anon?

Perhaps the previous poster was refering to the canon of there being a larger release of spores on death, which a gauss glayer's effects would negate, as opposed to the constant low level shedding that accompanies orks wherever they go...
