Awful manners and bad attitude
Reprehensible smells
Eating people (and each other)
Cowardly backstabbing and general sneakiness
Hordes and hordes of the loathsome crew!

Armpits, Orc breath, Orc chow flatulence, rock hard nose pickings hurled with fury, their charming facial features. "Does this dwarf corselet make my butt look fat?"

They seem quite useless in both technique and eye-hand coordination so a smart gun from Aliens might be best.
