* HighlyVisibleNinja: The Blood Axes love camouflage, but not all have figured out that it's supposed to blend in with the surrounding scenery, or that you shouldn't mix different types. However, regardless of how a Kommando is painted he's still able to Infiltrate. {{Fanon}} claims that Kommandos actually ''intentionally'' use bright, tacky colors like purple, on the basis that [[ExactWords you've never seen a stealth squadron]] [[InsaneTrollLogic in purple camo, right?]]

** In-universe, the dtronger a Waaagh is the more powerful and organized it's members are and the more advanced their technology gets. The Mad Max scavenger level that often shouldn't even work is the baseline; when a leader like Ghazghkull is in charge their tactics improve tremendously and toys like mass-scale teleporters come into play. The Beast's historical Waaagh had them acting in disciplined formations and using techology far beyond human and into the Eldar/Necron level, while the new caste of Primorks shaped their followers into new and more specialized forms (which have since degenerated into the Clans); it's implied that more than that and they would have graduated into full-on War-in-Heaven-level Krork.

* TheUnfettered: Even compared to every other faction, the Orks' total devotion to warfare is completely insane. In the ''[[Literature/CiaphasCain Death or Glory]]'', a Warboss ambushes an Imperial fleet by taking all his Weirdboyz, placing them on a ship in the Warp, and using the corresponding boost in energy to fry the navigators of the human fleet and drag it into realspace prematurely. This had the side effect of killing all the Weirdboyz, but not only is this a moot point to the Warboss, if he'd had more greenskin psykers, he'd have tried the strategy as often as possible and the Weirdboyz ''willingly'' went along with this, because Orks will do anything for an edge.
