Orc Warrior (Worthy)
rating: 0+x

By Mailanka

These are the orcs people expect to see in battle: ruthless, furious, tough and deadly, raging across the battlefield swinging a huge axe and carving his way through soldier and civilian alike until he grows bored and carts away his prize in loot and women. These hulking warriors take up the front line in goblin hoards, smacking the heads of unruly goblins and urging the hobgoblins forward.
Many Orc Warriors are weaker fodder. This represents a skilled orc warrior.

Skills: Brawling-15; Two-Handed Axe/Mace-15.
Class: Mundane (Goblin-Kin).
Combat Effectiveness Rating: 52 (OR 26 and PR 26).
Notes: The warrior's huge axe can only attack once before it needs to ready, so spend the orc's main action readying his axe, and his extra attack swinging with it, meaning he gets an attack every turn. Don't worry about parrying with it: that's why he has Dodge, High Pain Threshold and 20 HP. Generally unwilling to negotiate. Generally wears leather armor (heroes may loot). Great Axe is cheap.
