- "Let 'em tell da King. Da east belongs to da Orcs. Da east belongs to Morglum. Da east is green."
- —Morglum Necksnapper.[1a]
Morglum Necksnapper was the mighty leader of the Necksnapper Tribe of the Dark Lands.
Black Orcs come from the east, from the Dark Lands and the Mountains of Mourn where the land lies under a cloud of black volcanic dust. Some Black Orc tribes have undertaken the arduous journey across the Dark Lands into the west, where they have conquered Orc and Goblin tribes. The most feared of these tribes is the Necksnappers under their ambitious chieftain Morglum.[1a]
Most Orcs are loud and quarrelsome, but Black Orcs are quiet and stern, strong and silent. This is especially true of Morglum who appears to be almost entirely fearless. Morglum is renowned for his short, to the point battle cries and terse tactical observations. At the Battle of Death Pass he led his Black Orcs, Orcs and Goblins to a convincing victory against an Errant Bretonnian army. As the Bretonnian Duke and his knights galloped frantically out of Death Pass towards the setting sun, pursued by hordes of Goblins, Morglum Necksnapper made his famous pronouncement, that the east belonged to the Orcs...[1a]
Aided by his second-in-command, Oglok the 'Orrible, Morglum later united with the Orc Warboss, Gorfang Rotgut to attack Karak Azul. The Greenskins briefly took possession of the Dwarf Hold and captured many of King Kazador's kin.
