- "We like 'ittin' peepul, it's an Ork fing."
- —Noll Gall'gurr, Warboss of Da Chavz
Da Chavz are a, relatively, new warband who are just beginning to make a name for themselves in the Segmentum Tempestus.
No-one, not even the other Ork warbands, are entirely sure where Da Chavz came from. Rumour has it that a Flash Gitz raiding party, attacking a world of the Imperium, came a across a cache of paint. The leader, Noll Gall'gurr, was entranced by the bright colours in the tins and, immediately, set about painting all the vehicles under his command in the most garish colours he could find.
Liking the effect it had upon other Orks that saw them, he began wearing clothes in similar colours. Not wanting to be left out, the other Nobz and Boyz began to copy him until the entire Mob was decked out in similar 'finery'. While the other Mobz looked on with derision, Gall'gurr came to the conclusion that they had no taste and set off, hoping to find and recruit others of a similar mind set.
Da Chavz think that they are the height of cool and sophistication among other Orkz, considering the Mobz that look down on them as, at best, lacking any sense of style or, in the worst cases, "fick". They think that the bright colours they wear make a statement and constantly strive to outdo each other in garishness.
Additionally, Da Chavz seem to have developed their own gait. In their own minds, it is considered to be a menacing swagger. However, one unnamed Warboss, desribed them as "Lookin' like they crapped 'em sens and it's runnin' down der legs."
During the few occasions when they are not fighting, Da Chavz like to relax with a game of Kick'ed. The game simply entails two teams kicking the severed head of an enemy around a field, trying to hit their opponents target. The spectator's at kick'ed games usuall get so excited that a brawl invariably ensues.
- " Umies always runnin',Eldar runnin' too, Da Chavz are always runnin', runnin' after you."
- —War Chant of Da Chavz
Rather like their clothes and vehicle colour schemes, Da Chavz are high on impact and low on subtlety. Their tactics, for want of a better word, involves running at the enemy while screaming their war chant (if they remember the words) at the tops of their voices. While this may result in a high rate of attrition, the general opinion is, "Dere's allus more orks."
Allies and Enemies
Despite having the standard Ork beligerence, Da Chavz have been known to make shaky alliances if it means getting into a good fight. Out of all the Clans, they feel the greatest affinity with those belonging to the Goffs.
Da Chavz are Orks - what more needs to be said.
