    down the walls of half the cities in the Badlands No Notlob was to apply his creative genius to designing new engines for the defence of the pass The Men and Dwarfs didn t know what had hit them when their next assault foundered under a driving storm of huge bolts as large as spears and capable of piercing straight through even the toughest Dwarf armour Further assaults proved equally fruitless and eventually the Orcs were left alone to continue their age old trades of murdering travelers and plundering merchant convoys Notlob himself is an Orc Major Hero He is also an extraordinary engineer and counts as a full crew of 3 when firing a war engine In addition any other engine in his unit can 1 to their normal to hit score with war engines Equipment Bolt Throwing Engines Battlecry Due to the nature of their weaponry these Orcs do not employ a battlecry as such although they will happily enter hand to hand combat screaming yelling and gesticulating in the usual Orcish fashion However unusually for Orcs many of Notlob s crewmen can write a few words They employ this talent to enscribe various slogans along their missiles including such erudite witticisms as Notlob does it from 300 feet and Chew on this Stuntie Deeds The Black Fire Pass conflict was to earn Notlob a reputation amongst Human and Dwarf kind However he always considered the invention of the Happy Halfling Mangling Rod and Head Press to have been his greatest achievement Uniforms Orcs do not wear uniforms They despise uniformity and prefer to individualise all their clothing by applying a good layer of filth They have a similar attitude to their war engines and take great delight in giving them names and painting slogans on them Many
