Why do Orkz wear pants?

    Shame?
    They have no genitals. It's all smooth down there. What is there to cover up?

    Warmth?
    I don't know why an Ork would cover his legs for warmth but not his chest and arms.

    Protection?
    If Orkz really were wearing pants as a light armour to protect their hip-region, the Nobz and Bosses would be wearing pants and underwear made from scrap-metal.

    So they can put their looted shinies in lots of pokkits. More pokkits, more looting, more shinies.

    because the brain boy'z that created them put it in their genetic code to wear pants?

    Oi! We'z got dangly bits down der, dat's how we use da drops! Ya know how 'ard it be ta take a piss when yer bits got cut off? Dat bluddy well hurts! Plus dey give ya pokkets dat ya can fill wiv ammo, loot, bombs, or snacks. And ya can wear dem in yer klan colors so ya don't gotta keep paintin' yerself e'ery day. Plenty uv good reasons right der fer trousers!
  5. Well, Orks eat and drink, and as such they have to get rid of the waste-products a digestive tract produces out of food items :D So maybe they don't want to show those openings into their body?

    Or because GW couldn't be bothered with Naked, muscle-packed xenos in their artwork, and thus simply decided "those shall wear pants"

    Hypothetically Ork biology could make use of all the atoms of what they eat, resulting in 0 waste products.
  7. Could of course also be... never seen a novel that mentioned "And the foul xenos have shit all over the place" or something like that :D

    Space marines tend to do that if they eat the apothecary-calibrated supplements (AKA not drink 2 kegs of beer and eat 5 roasted hogs) , but orks are not that efficient, mostly because then the Brown Surprise could not exist as the funniest of all squigs. There is a reason the Squig drops contain that emergency knife, after all....

    Except for Cyborks, who for we know can just use their armour to intravenously take out waste from their blood and recycle it to useful material like I heard SM armour and Admech does. No reason why Cyborks can't do it either. But than Cyborks don't need to wear pants over metal groin, do they?

    Plus if you have pants, you can drop them and wiggle your green behind at the enemy. Wouldn't be that insulting if you never wear any pants! :OrkMoon: Just don't do it if Ragnar is around, he does not like that.

    Seen plently where they talk about spoor piles or dung on the wall on plants "infested" with orks. Or in orbital stations and such that the orks had conquered for a while.
