Gorkamorka


OK It's not 15mm or less but it is a dead Game

GORKAMORKA BACKGROUND
Gorkamorka is a tabletop miniatures wargame set on the desert and
dust storm world of Angelis. It is an inhospitable realm where
even the tough Orks must struggle to survive.
Angelis was being surveyed by the Imperial vessel Eternal Vigilance when an Ork Space Hulk crashed into it, creating a massive canyon named by the Orks "Da Skid", and irradiating the landscape of the surrounding area, including the base station of the Imperial survey team who had been investigating the planet's complex of pyramid structures.

The surviving Orks set about building a new ship, to leave the planet and rejoin their Waaagh! But rivalries broke out over which Ork god the ship resembled, and the construction  slowed dramatically as the tribes fought over resources and territory. In the fighting the vessel was destroyed. Eventualy the tribes band together and name the vessel "Gorkamorka", this meant that it could look like Both of the Ork gods, Gork or Mork.


Players design Ork mobs madeup of a small number of warriors and their vehicles. The game uses a unique system of movement for trucks, wartraks and bikes to find materials for Gorkamorka as well as structures and Battle with rival mobs. The game allows you to build up your mobs similar to Necromunda but has a  more humorous feel to it. An expansion was produced, Digganob, which added more factions to the mix including Rebel Grots (Gretchins demanding equal rights to those of the Orks) Muties (mutant riders) and Diggas (Ork-obsessed humans), along with additional scenarios and special characters.
