Greenskins Wurrzag

Wurrzag da Great Green Prophet and his war boar, Spleenrippa.

Wurrzag Ud Ura Zahubu is a Savage Orc Shaman of mighty mystical powers. Known as da Great Green Prophet, Wurrzag is guided along his path by the Greenskin gods. He leads tribes to greatness before wandering off to pursue yet another mad plan to advance Orcish kind.[2a]


Current background (8th Edition)

Wurrzag's green crusade began in the Southlands when, with the magical energy that arced uncontrollably out of his eyes, he unintentionally transformed the former Shaman of the Bone Nose Tribe into a squiggly beast.[2a]

As the tribe prepared to ritually eat Wurrzag for his deed, the marinated Orc entered a trance and spouted a tale of a time long ago, when the now-sorry Bone Nose tribe ruled the lands. The cold-blooded ones came and built great pyramids, driving the tribe away and destroying their idols.Since those shameful times, the tribe had lived under a curse.[2a]

Wurrzag rekindled their spirit of conquest and, filling in for their transformed Shaman, led the Bone Nose warriors to level the nearest lizard-city. Using the rubble of the wrecked pyramid, Wurrzag ordered the Greenskins to erect two edifices. To this day these same stone-faced idols watch over the Bone Noses and the tribe's fortune has grown.[2a]

Next, Wurrzag travelled to the Land of the Dead, where, after saving the Spotted Skullz tribe, he was presented with the Bonewood Staff. In the Badlands, Wurrzag raised new effigies of Gork and Mork, for which he was given the War Boar Spleenrippa by the Iron Pig tribe. Speaking with other tribal Shamans at every stop on his journey, Wurrzag sought out the best Big Bosses and the most promising Warbosses. His message was always the same - Gork and Mork are coming, now is the time for the Greenskins to take what should be theirs.[2a]

Even now Wurrzag is wandering somewhere in the lands, seeking out and aiding the most powerful Greenskin leaders, or perhaps inspiring some unknown tribe to greatness. He travels alone or with mobs of Savage Orcs that have vowed to 'see 'im off to da next fight.' Rumours about da Great Green Prophet run rife, and it is said an army with Wurrzag in it has never been defeated in battle.[2a]

Wurrzag is also renowned for his particularly powerful warpaints and his ability to turn enemy wizards into Squigs.[2a]

  • Baleful Mask[1a][2a] - Through the Baneful Mask, Wurrzag can see things as they will be in the future, or possibly as they were in the past. But it is a glorious age, whenever it is and this is the promise that the Once and Future Git brings: a return to this great time when Orcs rule the world and there is always a good fight in the offing. The mask also has the useful ability to launch lethal green bolts of energy at people who annoy him.[1a]
  • Bonewood Staff[1a][2a] - This was carved many centuries ago from rare and precious Bonewood. it is a potent focus for WAAAGH! energy and is often used for Oorc Magic Items. The Staff contains a spell which Turns Wurrzag's foes into Squigs.[1a]
  • Wizzbang the Power Squig[1a][2a] - A squig sits on the top of the Bonewood Staff, glaring hatefully at everyone. It is small and furry, with long hair that stands on end when its full of WAAAGH! energy, which it is most of the time.[1a]
