Default Bosspole vs Bosspole

I was creating my custom Ork character, Warboss Big-Boom when I realized something. My character isn't very trustworthy, so he can't join a unit with a Warboss. But it did get me thinking...


What happens if you have two Warbosses joined together in a unit made up of each other. They fail that Leadership 9, but they're both equipped with a boss pole. Do they hit each other, trying to inflict a wound on one another to try and get each other to stay in the fight, or what? A rather humorous thing to think about if you ask me.

Imagine watching that fight! 2 warbosses masaccre space marines, then as one turns around to wipe the blood off his good choppa the other guy power klaw slaps him and says "watz you thinkz you doing more marinez to choppa"

I wasnt actually sure that 2 independant characters can "join their own group with just eachother" but the thought of the warboss and bosspole thing would be quite funny to think.

Do you even have the Ork Codex? A model with a Bosspole can't wound another model with a Bosspole for the re-roll for failed Leadership.

so if one warboss didnt have a bosspole then he has a higher chance of passing morale then if he did? that sounds a little wierd fluff wise.

"Headline - Orks without bosspoles win fearless battle against chaos, except for warboss who had a bosspole"

I know its in the codex, but look from a comical side. Who would use a unit with JUST 2 warbosses anyway...

It's worded: not on the model with the Bosspole. Doesn't say anything about another model also with a Bosspole. Hence, it doesn't say anything about cumulating the effect, wounds, etc. either. The author just didn't think about having more than one Bosspole in a unit.

Okay, fine; good point but why do you want to inflict the wound on another Warboss? Why do even make it join another a Warboss?

Why is not the issue, and rather irrelevant. I mean, why would I charge into combat with my Tau forces? I have my reasons.


Let's say for example you have the 2 Warbosses join a unit. If the unit managed to get down to just the two Warbosses, behold, you have a unit consisting of 2 Ork Warbosses.

Yeah, one Warboss would wound the other. Just remember you only get one chance at it even though you have two bosspoles. You never get to re-roll a re-roll.

Fair enough. I don't want the chance to wound the other Warboss anyway. Very logical. Thanks Thor.

*Warboss #1 fails leadership
Warboss #1: RUU!!! *THWACK*
Warboss #2: No! We'z gon' go kill!
Warboss #1: What dat for? WAAAGH!!!! *charges #2 with klaw*

Space Marine Scout: I have my sights on them! Tell me when to take the shot
Space marine Scout Sergeant: No! I want to see how this ends.

^^if that happened in a game, I'd laugh my ass off.
