Wazdakka Gutsmek is ostensibly the greatest Ork Warbiker in existence.


Wazdakka started out as a simple Evil Sunz Mekaniak but quickly became seduced by the Kult of Speed and was banished from his tribe; he then became a Bad Ork Biker. While most Ork Bikerz like to ride in groups, Wazdakka prefers to travel alone – indeed it is rumoured that he only leaves the saddle to perform repairs on his highly kustomized bike, The Bike of the Aporkalypse.


The rest of the time he rides hard and fast, kept awake by a potent cocktail of drugs supplied to him by outlawed Bad Dok Painboyz.[2] Famed for single-handedly destroying a Warlord Titan on Scalex VI, he keeps the still-flaming skulls of the Princeps and crew as trophies. He is currently planning to unite all the tribes in a Waaagh! which begins at one end of the galaxy, and ends at the other.


The Kults members are Speed Freeks, Orks obsessed with and addicted to speed. Although most Orks prefer slaughter and explosions, some become addicted to driving really fast. These crazy individuals band together in their own mobs and warbands, full of War BuggiesWarbikes and Wartrukks. Most vehicles are painted red as, according to Orky superstition, “Da red wunz go fasta!”


They rely on Mekboyz to build and maintain their vehicles, and sometimes a warband is even led by a Big Mek instead of a Warboss. The obsession with speed can affect any Ork – so it is possible to find Orks from different Clans in a Speed Freek force. Of all the Clans the Evil Sunz have the most Speed Freeks.
