Orkimedes is one of the most infamous Ork Mek Boyz. Acting as the personal Mek Boy of the even more infamous Warboss Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka, Orkimedes is perhaps most famous for his tellyporta technology which was used to devastating effect by Ork forces during the Third War for Armageddon.[1a]
Orkimedes is a mysterious figure in Ghazghkull's army, so much so that his exact existence has never been verified. Instead, the Imperium has only encountered his handiwork on Armageddon such as up-gunned Gargants and submarines. Currently, he is one of the most actively sought-out targets by the Officio Assassinorum.[1b]
The name Orkimedes is a clear reference to Archimedes, the famous Greek engineer and mathematician.
