Summary: Weather through ingesting too many spores, being mentally ill, or pretending for the sake of not being the next slave to become a meal for the resident runtherders. There are generally small mobz of humans living at the fringes of ork settlement on conquered world, painted in daub green paint, acting and fighting in much the same way as their greenskin masters. The Orks call these lunatics ‘Diggas’, though exactly why the term is used seems to be wrapped up in some barbaric mythic tale about a crashed space hulk. Regardless, in battle Diggas fight in much the same way as their Ork Boy, counterparts, though without the orkish ability to seemingly make a random assortment of pipes, mufflers and cans into functioning weapons, the Diggas typically loot guard weapons, or whatever native kit they can find. Kunnin’ Ork commanders will typically use the Diggas as scouts, for their small stature and ‘good’ aim. Though most, use them as chase meat to lead squigs into the enemy, or as meat shields for more valuable units.
