Gurgit is an Ork Big Mek, who led a Waaagh! against the Tau Empire in 859999.M41. Launched from Gurgit’s Mekworld, an Ork World he commands, the Waaagh! was composed mostly of Ork walkers; which Gurgit believed, based off his previous battles with the Tau, would make them impervious to the Empire's weapons. He was proven wrong however at the Battle of Gunner Ridge, when the Tau easily defeated his Waaagh! and ended the threat it posed to their Empire.
