Anyone know what's more up to date, red blood or green blood? I'm just curious, as there's sources that claim both. Thanks. --Mob 21:24, 6 October 2008 (CEST)

I prefer green blood and i've seen it in a Chapter Approved, but not since.--Jonru 22:34, 6 October 2008 (CEST)
  • It sounds like the author intended to say "Green Skin" since he is explaining the photosynthetic properties of the Ork body. Additionally, he has in the same paragraph already referenced the Ork blood to be "red". I Believe it's a typo since I've only ever heard of Ork blood to be red.

Is it me or does this Paragraph need rewriting/make no sense?

Under the headline WAAAAGH!

The Adeptus Mechanicus has theorised that this gestalt psychic field also has a telekinetic affect, allowing Ork technology to work. This argument has been debunked, even by the Imperium itself. It is believed that the reason this argument came into existence is that the Imperium believes that a 'Machine Spirit' inhabits all technology, and that this machine spirit serves humanity. If this is the case, without a machine spirit Ork machines could not work, requiring some psychic effect to justify their often devastating effect. However, Genetor Lukas Anzion has noted that many Ork-built weapons will not function unless wielded by an Orkoid. It is thought that this is the reason red Ork vehicles go faster: simply because the Orks think they should!

1. I'm guessing the part about how the Genetor noted Ork weapons may only works for Orks at the end is supposed to support the previous points, and is supposed to 'explain' why the theory has been debunked. It doesn't, in fact, it supports the theory. As does 2. If the argument has been debunked, then no one would think Ork vehicles go faster just because Orks think they should. Amirite guys? Or Amirite?
