The Orruks are the most common and powerful of the Greenskin species who serve the forces of Destruction.

The orruks, once known in the World-That-Was as the Orcs, are one of the savage humanoid species that comprises the greenskins. They are the chosen people of Gorkamorka, the god of destruction. They are well known for their sheer physical strength and brutality, though not necessarily their intelligence. The orruks and their various factions are the species who comprise the majority of the Grand Alliance of Destruction.

Originally, the orruks were allied to the forces of Order, though Sigmar kept on eye on them. During the wars with the forces of Chaos during the Age of Myth, Gorkamorka grew tired of the battles for Order and led the orruks into the first Great WAAAGH!. During the Age of Chaos, orruks rampaged through the Mortal Realms, warring with the other intelligent species and each other.[1]

One of the first acts of the Stormcast Eternals was to purge the orruks from the Realm of Azyr.[2]
