I'm Khemri, and I've pretty much always been into Orks. I got into the hobby just as the Armageddon campaign was coming to a close, many moons ago, and I was captivated by these noisy, dirty monsters that wanted to pummel anything that stood in their way. My Boyz took a long hiatus when I was solely playing Fantasy, but the new Codex brought me back into the fold and my Waaagh! has been gathering steam again since then.

Unfortunately, I'm an absurdly slow painter. So despite being a long-time collector, pretty much nothing is completed.

Waaagh! Grimzag!

OD from TV
err... well I'm me.  What else can I say?  Started playing 40k in 3rd with the old Craftworld codex of Alaitioc, but eventually after eyeing multiple times a box of Boyz, and inadvertently challenged to change my approach to 40k (it was claimed that no one could win with Orks & many were angry and sick of playing against the pregame Sniper chart) I picked up the Orkz.  Now I must admit I've strayed from time to time with the 3rd Edition Chaos, 3rd Edition Tau, and 4th (and 5th) Edition Nids (plus the aforementioned Eldar) Orkz just have that warm fluffy part in my heart are far and away the most fun I've had in the game.

A LESSON TO BE HEEDED!
In June 2010 I went on a trip to NorCal during which I played a game of Apoc in a friend's LGS.  Sadly after the game I stepped out briefly for a telephone call and when I came back in to my dismay much of the Ork army I had brought was stolen.  So word to the wise, don't leave your army unattended.

Name: Adam

History:  I’ve been playing orks since the last edition.  I just got into 40k from Fantasy and I really liked the idea of vehicals, modifying vehicals, and having a lot of vehicals.  Orks seems like the perfect army. 

I created my own battle wagon and trucks and ran a speed freaks army.  Then, to my delight, the orks got updated with a new codex and some new stuff…  So I just kept on building, making sure that no two models were alike in my army…  I’ll so you a picture when I figure out a way to post pictures on 40k online…

I play tournaments regularly and I’m pleased to say win with some frequency.  I almost always win “best of show,” which makes me happy because I spend most f my time painting figures and very little playing them.  I have two newborn twins at home so they take up a lot of my play time.  I just sneak some painting in after they go to sleep at night!

My Waaagh: (how they are modeled, for WYSIWYG) Everything is painted unless listed

Warboss, Mega-armor, Skorcha (gazkull moded with some extras)
Warboss, HA, combi skorcha, attack squig, PK (AoBR warboss with a lot of mods)
Warboss, Bike, HA, PK, CB (moded from a wartrakk and old metal warboss)
Wazdakka (modified from the AoBR warboss, with a deff kopter moded bike) need paint
Big Mek (modified from an AoBR nob) skorcha and KFF
Big Mek, (made him out of a burna boy)

30 Slugga boyz, PK Nob w/BP
30 Slugga boyz, Pk Nob w/BP
20 Ard Boyz, PK Nob/BP
6 MANZ, 5 Kombi
8 Nobz, an assortment of weapons (wound allocation, I play to win!) w/pain boy
9 Biker Nobz, assortment of weapons again, painboy, needs paint
20 Gretchin, 2 slavers

Battle wagon, All options magnetized, Scratch built
Battle wagon, most options magnetized, based on a land raider chasis
Trukk, official GW truck with no mods
Trukk, Based on a Chimera
Trukk, Old trukk model made awesome
Trukk, Old trukk model made awesome
Trukk/wagon, made from a wwII german transport, orkified
9 Rokkit Buggies, based on an assortment of models

15 Storm Boyz, Zagstruk, needs paint
8 Warbikers, PK Nob w/BP Needs paint

10 Lootas
12 Kommandos and Snik, Need Paint

Looted wagon, boom gun (based off leman russ, used to use it as a leman russ in last codex)
Deff dreads x2, all weapons magnetized, 4xclose combat arms, 2 x skorcha
6 Killa Kanz, weapons magnetized, 6 c DCCW, grotzooka x 3, 3x RL
3 lobbas, slaver and full compliment of grots (scratch built from parts…)
3 zzap guns, slaver and full complimentof grots (scratch built as well)

Mork’s Might Mangler, Gargant, uses special rules at my LGS.  Stands over 22 inches high, made originally from a folgers coffee can.  Recently completed…

Fist of Gork, Skullhamma battle fortress, made from GI Joe Tank

Da Dakka Wagon, looted Storm Lord

Fighta/Bomba, made from a WW2 model that I orked out with huge engines and a lot of missles! Need paint


That’s about it…  A pretty nice collection I think…  definitely gives me some flexibility when it comes to making army lists…

Name: Dropfall, aka 'I ain't telling'

History: I've been building, demolishing, converting, and rebuilding Orks since Gorkamorka. Not much of a hardcore player, or painter to be honest. I have dabbled with Tau and CSM's, but my first love is the Orks, and its them I keep coming back to. Infact more than a few Ork vehicles (and the occasional infantry model) has parts from other 40K armies.

   Dedicated Transport - Battlewagon with 2 Big Shootas, Deff Rolla, Armour Plates
• Kommands (Fifteen) - 12 Kommandos, 2 Burna Kommandos, 1 Kommando Nob with Power Klaw, Bosspole

This space belongs ta
"Bluu In Da Phaes"

Linky to the thread I started them in (pics in there). (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=191187.0)

Da Story

Bluu In Da Phaes (BIDP).... all started out way back in da day of 3rd ed... we had a few boys and their faces were blue instead of Green (actually I was testing some different washes back in the days of true Ink)... anyway... Me Fantasy Orks were mingling with me Space Orks... and the clan was formed... we went to war several times, and we never lost a game over many many years of gaming... (when we won, we won ~~ when we ran away, we was only going ta get more boys ~~ and then there were a few times that we all got wiped out, so no witnesses means dat da battle never really took place, cus ya can't prove it).. anyway, we never lost. Along come da 5th ed and seriously cool Codex and some wicked new figure too (Woot)... We older boys decide dat da AOBR box set is too good to pass up, so we gets a set... dump da SM's for mor Boys (trade), never even get outta da store, and get an chance to repeat... so for $150.00 we goes home wit 4 full sets of AOBR Orks (woot)... a few weeks later I gets da chance to trade some more SM\s for another set of AOBR Orks (seamed like no-one wanted them)…. Den I gather da Mek’s togetha and start figuring a way to build a unique and “Fun” army wit dem all. So, since they have been Screaming (till their "Bluu in da Phaes") since the 3rd Edition, I figured that I would keep that theme going but with a more modern feel and look to it...

First came da list (or ten/thirty, as I didn’t get it right on dat first try).. but for any “Fun” list, you need to have some balance as well as good old fashioned arse kicking power from time to time… so I wanted good troops to start with (10 Knobs wit a warboss make a pretty solid Troop… so dats were the list started)… I then figured out that I wanted them on bikes.. so the rest of the army would have to be fast as well (because I likes speed, and red paint)… So I figured that I would need a couple trukks as well (with boys in there of course)… after that I needed one of each FOC slot at least… but the Knobs started as Elites, so no more of them… on with a Fast Attack choice, well I had a bucket load of Deffkopta’s already so that choice was easy… now for a Heavy support… Hmm the Killa Kans looked cool (and I could build them from junk,,,, but then the new Battle Wagon box came out, and one just sorta fell into my hands one day.. so a Battle Wagon it would be… I was still a few points shy for 1700 (local favourite size)… so I figured what could I add to help as much as possible (or be fun to build).. I messed around with Snikrot, (I sucked in his usage on the table, so back to the drawing board)… then I realized that a Kustom Force Field might really help my deployment and style, so the Mek’s build me one… and tada… the list was pretty well done.

From dare da clan of Bluu in da Phaes has evolved into one seriously Lean-Mean-Green stomping machine, and here are some updates/Lists/links that might interest you.

Here is der current army list.

Many other battles with 1500-1700 pts being used, and as the army generall tables an opponent in 4-5 turns I have not been posting Batreps as there is no use to rub salt in the enemies wounds. Only one unit of Slugga's left to paint to have the 1700 points totally legal, but the 1500 pt list is finished.

Hey everyone! I just finished painting my 1850 army, so I figured I'd finally say a formal hello, and post a panoramic! My army, the Necromundan 523rd Mechanized Conscripts, is actually an Imperial Guard regiment built using the Ork Codex.

Hello, I have been playing Warhammer since 1988 when I started with WHFB Empire, then about 1990 I started with Eldar, first as Biel Tan, then Uthwe, and finally as Saim Hann.  I also added in High Elves, and Skaven.  For the longest time my 40k army was only the Eldar, and I like to think I got really good at them.  Then one day the GW in Chicago had a psudo tourney where they chose the army and if you could use their store army to beat their other army you would win 1k of an army of your choice.  So I entered my son who was 13 at the time, and coached him on what to move where, etc and he beat the stores nid army by complete massacre in 4 1/2 turns, therefore winning the army.  He chose Orks.  So over the next few years I helped him build his army to 1750, but he didn't always play them as he still liked his Ultramarines.  Then I got transferred to Florida and there were not many WHFB players, but a lot of 40k players, so I played 40k almost exclusively.

Well, time passed, and my son grew up, joined the Navy and when he went he left his Ork army.  Now I can't see an army just sitting around going to waste so I fixed them up and repainted/finished painting them and started playing them.  I soon gravitated to speed freaks, and was definitely hooked on them when the Armageddon book came out.  So I rebuilt the army to be speed freaks.  Since then I have added a bit to the army and it is quite large now.  I still play my Eldar every few months but I mostly play the Orks as they are just so addicting, and of course we never lose.

So here is my Ork army:

I started out playing rogue trader when I was a kid.  Ork player since AoBR came out. 

This army has been growing steadily for a while.  I'm styling the army with each unit themed as a different clan.  Tons of pics of the painted models can be found here (http://pittsburghbloodbowl.forumsland.com/pittsburghbloodbowl-about488.html).

Currently a mostly Kult of Speed army, but I'm adding some walkers and other elements in.

My main army is IG, but I had a friend who bought 2 AoBR boxes so I bought the Orks from him and figured I'd start a small Ork force. I must say that I have had an incredible time painting and playing with these guys.

Here are some shots of my Blood Axes warband led my 'annibull Barka. It's not 100% complete yet as I have 2 trukks, 2 warbuggies, and 10 more stormboyz to do before I'm completely finished.

Heyo - I played Tau and Nidz back in 3rd edition and the begining of 4th, then lost my ability to hang out with my local gaming group due to work conflicts.  After a 5 year 40k drought, a move, a new local group, and a new job changed that and I was able to get back into things this spring.  Decided to start on a whole new army since many of my Tau and Nid models were gone (not sold or lost, just gone - my mom teaches elementary school and many of them were given as rewards to her students - doing my part to promote the 40k-ers of the future!)  So, like any reasonable person would, I went green.

Warboss: Squigsquisher
head of Waaagh Watzit!

Model list: (army list changes almost daily)

HQs:
-2 black reach warbosses
-biker boss (mid conversion)
-wazdakka (mid conversion)
-weirdboy
-mek with SAG
-mek with kff
-dok grotznik

Elites:
-22 lootas
-15 burnas (parts for 15 more, working on getting them built)
-25 nobz
-5 tankbustas
-10 mega-nobz

Troops:
- ~150 boyz
- ~120 gretchin, 6 runt herds
- 3 trukks

Fast attack:
- 8 bikes (23 more currently on order/being shipped)
- 1 wartrakk
- 17 stormboyz in very bad repair (working on it!)
- 9 deffkoptas
-  (6 buggies currently on order/being shipped)

Heavy support:
-3.5 battlewagons (one convert bought from a friend is in very bad shape, working on it!)
-3 looted wagons
-6 killa kans (5 more current on order/being shipped)
-3 deffdredd

Current Projects:
-converting bosses for a wazdakka list
-repairing some models bought from a friend that are in bad shape
-making some zzap guns from spark plugs, kannons from glue sticks, and lobbas from chair leg caps - will have a full set 9 each of the big guns when done.
-converting some of my ample regular boyz into burnas and/or kommandos
-orky up my looted chimera and devilfish a bit more

For the future:
-More trukks
-a few more buggies/wartrakks/skorchas to fill out that area
-at least one more deffkopta
-another 15 or so nobz (including a painboy and a biker painboy)
-8-23 more lootas
-lots of painting (~2/3rds of the models are still primer only I'm afraid)

Name:  Angel of Death 007

Profile:  (updated 1/1/10 reloaded 9/8/10)  I started orks in the latest codex release.  I have been playing 40K for about 3 years now.  I have a very large Space Marine Army, a large Eldar army, a Tau army, a red cosairs CSM army,an ork army still in progress (long journey), necron army and an assembled guard army.  Most of my ork boyz are conversions from different fantasy models as I started buying up boys before AOBR came out so I only have a few squads of AOBR boyz.

I was drawn to the orks because I really wanted to play a horde army.  At the present time my ork army has been leaning more toward a kan wall or dreadbash type army.

Current Force:
so far everything is under construction almost everything I got is the latest release and I am currently working on some other conversions.

Konichi-Waaagh.

Been playing 40k on-and-off since about early 2000 or so. Dark Eldar was my first army, so I've always had an emphasis on shooting supported by small yet punchy melee squads for secondary sweeps. I got into Orks right as the new codex came out, mostly having been embittered by the changes to the 4th edition Chaos Codex resulting in my mutant-heavy Lost and the Damned army becoming *illegal*. A few trades in, and I now have a lot of Orks that are still under construction. The workshop as it stands looks something like this (more stuff besides that of course):
(http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c84/MagicJuggler/workspace.jpg)

The list tends to change a bit, but 2 Battlewagons are the main core, if only to operate as the Ork Meltagun-equivalent. Aside from that, I always played a small mobile "elite" army, as far as Orks can be called.

Oh...and the models are based on the theme of Orks looting anime. Case in point, here's an updated pic of Klowd.

Hello there, My names Ben and I've been collecting ang gaming with orks since about 3 years ago, although my force has been slow to gather its been slowly expanding in size and strength.

Unfortunatly I usually end up kutting up bits and peices from my old imperial guard and chaos army and gluing them on to this and that usually ending up being unplayable beacause the bitz dont have rules or are just too unpractical, Typical orky style. Such as a baneblade i had that now lies in bits all over the place glued to this and that and bolstering the gun lines.

My Warboss is named Megazogga and has gone through several changes and now sports a load of metal plating, big nasty klaw, shooty rockety gun and a pet face eating squig called Hamish.

My clan is called The Kaladonia Krew and wears the Saint Andrews Cross with pride.

My army list is as follows

Stormboys              7                      (probably going to remove as are      84
                                                      inaffective against almost
                                                      everything and cost too much)

Killa Kans              3                   1 Rokkit, 1 scorcha, 1 Grotzooka           135      (Backing up the Dread)

Deff Dread            1                    2 KMB                                                    105

Sup!
I'm Hekkastor, and I've just started orks with the classic AoBR models, and got lucky so I had two PK nobs thrown in.
My thoughts on the Warboss is to name and title him based on his first victory/moment of glory on the board, so for now, he's nameless.
I'm stuck somewhere between going for a kult of speed list and a greentide list, so I'll have more details on the army as I find my play style.
I've been playing for around nine months now, and my Necron force, while fun, gets a bit rigid tactics wise, so I've decided to run Orks as a parallel so that I can be a bit more flexible on the board. So far, they've been more than fun to fight with, so I'll be devoting more time and effort to them

Hello :)
Im {GMS} as you probably know already =]
I have finaly found time to finish off an Ork army given to me when my brother quit the game so i dont have any Orky knowlage at all.
I have basicly AoBR plus one extra Deathcopta and a few conversions from random WFB models  and a box of lootas/burnas which i dont think has all the bitz in...
My Warboss has no name as of yet as i dont thing he will stay in the army :( The plan is to make a fast list of Bikers and Stormboyz as i already have Nids and IG and i cant do another horde ;
My existing army consists of:
Warboss Gaskul Thrakka
AoBR warboss
Converted Warboss
Converted Forcefeild Mek
23 ork boyz with 4 big shootas and a nob with a Klaw and combi-rocket thingy
5 nobz
4 coptas
and 5 loota/burnas =]

Hopefully i will get the battleforce soon and some bikes to start the army propper :)

Hello ya hoomies lovas!

I'm Numinak, an Old 40k player, but I've only just started in on orks as an army.   I've not gotten far into it yet, not even a game, but I'm working on it.

Currently I have two AoBR sets, so 40 boys, 10 Nobz, and 6 Deffcoptas and Captain Badrukk that I won in a contest.   I don't have any conversions for orks going on at the moment, but I do have plans to convert at least two deffcoptas into a warcopta eventually.


I normally Play imperial guard, and still do for the most part. I just felt the need for something different and so here I am! Of couse, seeing the grot tanks on FW helped too, as I'd like to incorporate them into my army!

I'm Hinga

used to have a large army 3/4 years ago with moving around an turning into a man "cough" i lost alot of my army.. recently got back into it,
always been an ork fan from the days they were just kannon fodder to now where they can pretty much sabotage any given unit or IC!

got 1 box of AoBR so my list is pretty much

5 nobz
20 boyz
3 deffkopta's

but also got
Thraka
Big Mek with Kff

i am a new (somewhat) 40k player,only been playing for 1 year. i started with khorne themed csm, but got reeeeealy tired of the constant *get rhinos, they will help you sooooo much* when i dont have the money to crap out for 4 rhinos, so i got a great deal for a set of these orks:


12 deffkoptaz, im modeling these into nob bikers, most will have big choppas, 4 approx. will have klawz.
approx. 75 boyz, only 2 are painted as of now(i use those for painboys with my nobz), 8 have big shootas
25 nobz (only 5 are unpainted) (2 have konverted klawz)i am in the process of converting the rotor bladez of my deffcoptas into big choppas for some of my nobz from AoBR, i like the look of some, but at the same time some dont look as great.(not nearly as artistically gifted as a lot of people on here)
2 looted wagons that are chaos preds with lascannon layout i use for boomgun wagons.....
1 BATTLEWAGON! It has a kannon, 4 big shoootas, and grot riggers.
3 AoBR warbosses, one is primed, another on a fancy base.
1 weirdboy

i love orks tactics too much to go back to csm, so i have decided to completely devote myself to the waaaagh! i am in the middle of a trade for more stuff, ill keep you guys up to date, and post pics of everything afterwards.

I'm Ray and have been playing 40k since second edition before Dark Millinium came out and have always wanted to do orks. I've fought them many times over the years and have always marveled at the shear volume of models, shots and attacks they seem to have. I used to joke with our retired ork player that "One choppa attack is a joke, but one hundred is nothing to laugh at!" so here I am three editions and a decade or two, it all blends together after time, later and not a single ork player around. Where's the justice in that and as I've always wanted to try orks and rolling a bucket of dice! I currently own 2 sets of AOBR orks an extra 13 AOBR boyz, 2 trukks, a battle wagon 5 loota/burna boyz and 5 extra nobz. I'm planing on a green tide Bad Moon army to show the weedy 'nids a true horde! Also planning on a speed freaks as well. I also have Snikrot and an old 2nd Ed Nazdreg

some of the boyz so far

Hi, Massaen here

Just starting to collect da boyz, with the last 20+ years of my 40k life being with the Panzies and Beakies for the most part.

Hoping to have pics of my first boyz in the next week or 2 as I am very inspired at present.

Well, after a few days of trying to find my camera and not being able to I guess I will post in here with no pictures. I started playing 40k in 2002. My first army was a Black Templars army and after constantly winning I got tired with the game. So a few years and a couple of deployments later I decide to pick it up again. I walk into my local game store and some guy is looking around because his army was stolen. I give the guy all of my Space Marines and start looking at the different armys. While I'm flipping through the Orks codex someone tells me that no one at the store plays Orks because "they suck and no one wins with them". I immediately take this as a challenge and buy my first set of Boyz. Right now I'm still building my army and I currently have:

HQ
Gahz

Elites
None

Troops
30 Boyz with Choppas led by a Nob with a PK and Boss Pole
30 Boyz with Choppas led by a Nob with a PK and Boss Pole
Trukk

Fast Attack
9 Koptas (all given to me so I won't complain)



I've played a couple of low point games and have won both of them. Now I just need to buy more guys for my army and to start working on my tactics. I will update this once I find my camera and get more Orks.

Waaagh my green brethren.

I'm Minsc and I've been playing 40k (Craftworld Eldar.) since 2004.
(Damn you Dawn of War! How rich wouldn't I've been if I hadn't discovered you!?).
In 2006 I felt I needed some diversity, and started playing Chaos Space Marines.

Since then I also started with WFB, but now I started to feel strangely pulled towards Orks (which I've fancied alot since their 4th Ed. codex was released, praise Phil Kelly!), and about a month ago I finally gave in, despite my current lack of money.  :-[

Currently I own:

1x Ghazghkull Thraka
1x Warboss on foot. (AoBR)
1x Big Mek with SAG. (converted AoBR Warboss.)
2x Warbosses on Bike. (converted Nob Bikers.)

10x Lootas.
24x Nobz with sorted equipment.
15x converted Kommandos, including 2 Burnas.
1x konverted Snikrot.

38x Shoota Boyz (including 6 Big Shootas.)
~100 Slugga Boyz.
20x Gretchins with 2x Runtherds. (usually works as big gunz crew.)
4x Trukks.

6x Deffkoptas.
10x Warbikers. (Will be used as Nob Bikers more often than not.)

2x Battlewagons.
2x Looted Wagons. (1 With a Boom Gun).
10x Flash Gitz. (converted from Big Shootas.)
3x Killakans.

My next order (Mork knows when...), will include 20x Stormboyz and a Deff Dread.

Hmmm...It's taken me a month to get all this stuff (first hand!)...I need help.  ::)

Hey All. I've been around awhile, I suppose I might as well post in here now. I'm starstrider; the name was picked out because I played some 40k a long time back as the eldar, and initially planned on coming back to them. I ended up going green instead though, and here I am.

My "Army" is roughly 2000 points, which is to say I could probably make it 2000 points if I wanted to, although it would be a bad list. As it stands, I've got

HQ
Warboss (Klaw, Attack Squig, Cybork )   110 Points   
Big Mek (KFF)       85 Points

Troops
20 Slugga Boys (Nob w/ Klaw, BP, 2 Big Shootas)      170 Points
30 Slugga Boys (Nob w/ Klaw, BP, 3 Rokkit Launchas)   250 Points
12 Shoota Boys (Nob w/ Klaw, BP, Big Shoota)   152 Points
9 Nobz (3 Klaws, 5 Big Choppas, 1 Painboy Upgrade)   310 Points
Deff Dread (4 Close Combat Arms, Grot Riggers, Plating)    120 Points

Elite
5 Lootas    75 Points
3 Nob Bikers (2 Klaws, 1 Big Choppa)    190 Points

Heavy Support
3 Rokkit Kans   150 Points
1 Battle Wagon (Kill Kannon, Zzap Gun, Deff Rolla, Red Paint Job, Grot Riggers, Plating)    205 Points

Fast Attack
3 Deff Kopta (Rokits, Buzz Saw)    210 Points

2027 Points

I'm going to work on making a good 1750 or 1800 point list using this as a base, I suppose, and will work up to a 2000 list at some point. I'm honestly shocked how fast my army jumped from 1000 to 2000 points. It seems to have done it overnight. A better configuration for me will probably involve dropping two green barons, taking a cheaper battle wagon, and maybe making some other cuts.

There's not much well painted to show off as this is still pretty new and only one squad of boys is done (and they're not really done either). I'll get back to you guys with some pictures of painted stuff once it's all done.

My big pet project of the moment is my battle wagon, which I'm trying to put together from the shadowsword kit. It's not a real conversion so much as kit bashing (and no super extensive kit bashing either). I'm just trying to go for something fairly straightforward that ends up with an orky feel, without loosing the form of the tank it's based on. I may or may not end up keeping the turret of the shadaowsword (the big gun makes a great kill kannon, but without the turret it looks more wagony if I can find a clever way to make the above-tank deck come together). I'll try and get some pictures of this project too, as time moves on.

you bought all that stuff new and you now some how lack money? Dude I think that's half a house payment worth of stuff you dropped

Much appreciated and thanks for the donuts.
It does feel like I spent near half a house payment, but truth be told I "only" ( ::) ) spent ~£330 worth of money on my orks so far. I've konverted the looted wagons from some old Rhinos, and I got some Orks from a friend who intended to start with orks some time ago but never actually managed.

Post by: Zognutz on July 1, 2011, 06:53:19 AM
Hey guys... I'm Zognutz [aka Andy] Irongob and I've just been konverted to the green side this year.
I've been gaming properly since '96 and even before that I used to play heroquest/rouge trooper/blood bowl and the like.
Not once in those 14-15 years have I once contemplated playing Orks.
Infact it's easier to list those that I haven't collected; 'Nids, Eldar, Daemons.
I sold everything I had last year and this year I decided to collect just one army and keep it at that.
I ended up doing orks by accident because I needed a 750pt quickly and managed to grab my first 1000pts for £35 on ebay.
that was 20 sluggas, 20 choppas, waboss, 10 nobz, 3 deffkoptas and a looted boomwagon.... bargain!

I started out with my own Klan - Da Deff Skwodrun - using pussers grey and black & white checks as a colour scheme.
At that point I hadn't read the Deff Skwodrun comics [which are awesome BTW] but I'm an aircraft engineer in the royal navy.
Formerly a Harrier mechanic [the colour scheme was that of 800NAS - my old squadron] I wanted lots of airsupport so koptas, warkoptas and flyers are on the menue.

After playing a handful of games it hit me that a Klan had chosen me!... I was a Blood Axe and I didn't even know it!
I had teamed with an IG player for a doubles tourney, I tend to over strategize and forgoe a good kicking to secure an objective.
And I value a good ratio of  infantry:armour:firesupport:airsupport  ..... so a Blood Axe I was!

I really liked that fact that I chose the Orks but the Klan chose me XD.
 
Since the initial Junkyard-rush I've ended up with in the region of 2000pts [C@01/07/11] and have tonnes of ideas for expansion.

Most noteworthy plans are;

Valkyrie-Warkopta konversion with Black Orc based 'Ard Boyz [Da Storm Troopaz]
Sentinel based-Killa kan konversions [Da Sent-in-allz]
kustom Kommandoes - 'eavy konversions
plasitcard scratch build MANZ
Plasticard scratch build Ork Fighta - in progress

Here's a list of my army as it stands, I'll Photo only complete models and update the army shot as more are completed.
In the mean time you can find my WIP Plog here;

Here's Zognutz Irongob's Deff Skwodrun - Blood Axe Mercenaries;

Ghazkul Thrakka - konverted, basecoated
AoBR Warboss - Komplete
8 AoBR Nobz - konverted, painting - WIP
30 AoBR Slugga Boyz - built, basecoated

Name: Ben (or muffinman on most forums)

I have been playing Orks for about 5 years now, I believe. I had been playing Eldar for a while, and then branched off to try out the tau. Found out that the Tau are not very much fun to play, so I needed a new army. I sold my Tau and bought Orks. never regretted it since. Most of my armies (not just my orks) seem to focus on Close Combat, so I'm right at home with the orks. I was playing when orks weren't "cool" (I actually picked them because they were the one army not present in my club), I kept playing throuhg a new codex when orks were cool again, and I'm still playing now that everyone says Orks have fallen from the top.

I am a fairly competitive player, I live in austin, tx and for whatever reason the guys down here are a very competitive bunch. many of the guys in my group post on BoLS, and because of that people are always playing lists designed for Gt play. Even with a competitive group, my orks have held their own. I look forward to many more years of building, converting, and smashing face with my favorite army. I have several other armies now, but I always find myself giving more love to my orks..

Current forces:

HQ:
Biker boss with skorcha, klaw, and attack squig (actually Skippy the Attack Grot)
Warboss on foot with klaw and skorcha

Elites:
17 nobz - various equipment, split into 2 squads usually
5 Nob Bikerz - various gear
9 lootas
11 burnas (one mech)
15 kommandos - 2 burnas, plastic snikrot
5 tankbustas

Troops
40 slugga boyz - nobz, 2 missiles, 2 big shootas
20 shoota boyz - nob, big shootas
20 gretchin - 2 runtherds, all converted from goblin models
10 'ard boyz - nob with klaw
3 trukks - all withr ams and rokkits

Fast Attack
erm.... none?

Heavy Support
2 killa kans (old school with grotzookas)
battlewagon with deff rolla (converted from a trukk and a backwards leman russ)
looted rhino with skorcha
looted basilisk with boomgun

Its not a huge force obviously, but I have a certain play style that it works for. Someday I'll expand it so that I have some more options. Right now I am giving myself over to the kult of speed, and have been working towards a fast meched up army. obviously I need some FA choices before I can really call myself a speed freak...

Works in Progress...

big mek with SAG (I love the model, but don't usually play him...)
2 rokkit buggies
2 deff koptas

I had more, but they have all been finished now. I have too many other projects going to add many to my ork list. still working on a bunch of space wolves and warmachine stuff.

That's all I've got! I'll be posting some pictures soon!

Oy yooz!  Been playing since 1999 (started as Eldar, picked up Deathguard, and then started Tau, Traitor Guard and Nids... gave all of my stuff away... came back to Orks last summer and got my Deathguard and Nids back).  Used to play a fair amount of tournaments (2-3 a month) and hope to get back into it.  Love the occasional BBQ game outside and I'm a huge fan of Mega-Mega battles (pre-apoc but tending to lean toward 150,000+ pts so big even for apoc).  Most importantly, I LOVE to paint.

   I am The Nightwalker. I started playing Games-Workshop games when me and my late brother started to play their Lord of the Ring strategy battle game. After he died I started to hang out with one of his friends, who by chance is an avid Tau player. As I didn’t have anyone to game with I started to collect 40k models to play with him. I at first played Imperial Guard (as they were the least strange) but recently started to play orks. After all, they are just too green and funny to resist.

   Also, I know I’m not big on painting. I would much rather convert and write then paint.

Toofy grinz ladz! I come to join yer Waaaagh! Been lurking about for a bit on these forums as activation emails seemed hard to come by. But since all that has been said elsewhere (and a bit more) lets get down to our Green obsession. While in deep thought (well, for an ork) an epiphany came to me like the thunder of Gork's passing gas. In the year 40,000 who can argue it's not a ork's life. Nothing but war from one end of the galaxy to the other. Doesn't matter where a boy goes, there will be something to shoot/stomp/kill. So with that I gave in to the green.
Right now I'm leaning toward BW/Speed freaks list. Deff rollas, trukks, bikes. I'll try to get a list up soon for a little C&C. In the mean time, stay green my friends.

Greetings all! I'm CheesyRobMan (occasionally known as Rob) and I've been playing Orks since AoBR came out. The first Ork I painted was the free Nob that was on the front of WD at the time, and currently he sits on my wife's desk at work along with a Tomb King I painted for her as well. My Ork army is currently around the 4-5k mark, and I'm focusing on a Dread Mob at the moment using the IA8 list. All that's left to build and paint are 6 Killa Kans (undercoated) and a FW Lifta Wagon (still NIB).

Here are a few pictures of my Orks:

Most recently I built a Big Trakk with lots of extra gunz - Da Dakkawagon.

Howdy, name is Respekt, started played eldar and orks something like 7 years ago, after something like a 5 year hiatus, I recently came back with a vengeance. After dipping my toes in some nurgle, I realized if your gonna go green, might as well go all the way.  Anyway, now that I'm a boy, I assume I should introduce my deff boyz

All the painted bitz

(http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a109/dontknowjackshmit/40k%20stuff/100_0312.jpg)

This includes
Ghazz
Warboss
Big Mek
Old Zogwart
30ish shootas
40ish sluggas
3 meganobs
15ish Nobs
3 kans
3 zapp gunz
1 green baron
1 looted rhino
4 battlewagons
6 rokkit buggies
12 lootas

A diff angle

I'm approaching "finished" status on the current state of my army

I have the following left to paint:
1 battlewagon
15ish shootas
15ish sluggas
10ish nobs
5 kommandos
some scattered lootas and burnas

Some conversions currently wip:
Boss on bike
looted devilfish
like many I'm on sort of a necron tangent and I'm trying to find a way to magnetize feet, a head and sort of a metal skirt that would drape over the top to turn monoliths into stompas.

Ok, 'bout time I did this, so:

I've been playing 40k since Rogue Trader, never used to like orks because of things like the "Goff Rock Band", so played "serious" armies like Eldar for years, on and off. I tend to oscillate between 40k and fantasy with varying degrees of motivation, and have many many armies on the go, in various stages of completion!
However, in recent editions, Orks seem to have grown up, and I really like the current fluff, the models, and especially the conversion possibilities, as the older I get, the more painting and modelling becomes important to my enjoyment of games. Nowadays I dabble in CSM, eldar, dark eldar, and have picked up quite a few of the new necrons, but Orks are my go-to army in 40k. My favourite list is still all-biker, and my favourite clan is bad moons; if you thought speed freeks had to be red, you're wrong:

Red wuns may well go faster, but yellow wuns have leather seats.

*update* Painting is still very much in progress, but here are some examples:

Hello,

I have always had a soft spot for Orks and the painting potential for them ( and deathguard - which I may also do ) is just limitless ! My Forge world models are my prized possessions at this point :)

The list is ( approximately ) as follows:


HQ:

10 Warbosses
2 Big Meks ( KFF + SAG )
1 Weirdboy


Elite:

6 Nob bikers ( Forge world )
15 Lootas
20 Kommandos + Snikrot
18 Tank bustas
10 Burna boyz
25 Nobz

Troop:

120+ Boyz
40 Gretchin
1 Trukk

Fast Attack:
25 Stormboyz + Zaggstruk
6 Deffkoptas
6 Bikers

Heavy Support:
5 Killa Kans
1 Battlewagon
 
Other:
Stompa

Forge world:

Warboss on bike
6 Nobs on bikes
2 Half trakks /w Flakkaguns
1 Big trakk


I am hoping to add a lot more Forge world items into my standard list as Games Workshop prices here in Australia are just ridiculous !

Howdy!  Here I go by Ork E Nuff.  I've been collecting and playing orks for over 20 years.  I've collected and gotten rid of more figures than I can remember.  I enjoy kit bashing and converting; I'll have to get more pictures and post as I can (how do ya post pics on this site?).  I hope I can be of use to the community.  My games are usually 50/50 in the win/loss bracket.  I just enjoy playing as I find it relaxing and fun (isn't that why most of us got into the hobby to begin with?).

My most recent foray:
WB with PK
 Big Mek w shokk attack

lootas with 3 meks
burnas with 3 meks
8 Nobs w/Painboy
Deff Dredd
23 'ard boyz w/nob, pk
Killa Kan
 
I won against Black Templars

What a rush....

Just an update of what I got:

Warbosses:

(http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg495/TrollSkinner/IMG_1610.jpg)

Interestingly, the first image was my first converted WB, due to my lack of funds at the time to purchase the lead beahemoth GW WB back in the dark ages before plastic really took off.  I ended up doing a whole nob retinue based on ogryn/ogre bodies and ork heads.  More pics later.

Hi i'm Yellow. I've been collecting orks for nearly two years now. That is to say I've been quite regularly buying boxes and putting them on my shelf ^^.

I've walked past the GW shop many times in my life and sometimes into it too but the prices always put me off.
With the release of 40k computergames such as DoW I got a bit more emersed into the 40K universe and since I've always been a fan Orks in any and all universes I played digital Orks alot.

When passing by the GW shop I would always look at the models in the windows especialy the Stompa  ;D

Looks like my girlfriend thought to do me a favour and gave me a Stompa for my birthday about two years ago...

To make use of that I started to actualy buy Orks. I got the AoBR box and exchanged the puny 'umans for another set of orks. And have constantly bought new stuff that I thought might be nice to have ^^.

I run the lovely grey colorscheme  ;)
My list is as follows (Mostly unasambled xD)

HQ
2 AoBR Bosses
1 SAG Big Mek
1 KFF Big Mek
1 Wyrdboy

Elite
8 AoBR Nobs (number dwindling because of MANZ conversion inspired by Zognutz and Typhon)
2 MANZ (Number growing ^^)
4 Loota/Burnaz +1 Mek (not assambled yet. probably going to salvage 4 boyz to build 4 of each)

Standard
40 AoBR Boyz (probably going to convert 10 to Shooty boyz)
20 Shooty Boyz
8 Gretchin (Dwindling number as I use them for vehical crews)
3 Trukks

Fast Attack
5 Stormboys + Zagstruk
3 Bikes
5 Deffkoptas (took one apart to pimp my MANZ conversions)

Support
1 Looted wagon (Tau Hammerhead)
1 Battlewagon

and I own one totaly unassambled Stompa  (probably going to be the last thing I build because the stompa should be awesome  ;))

Pics will follow when i actualy have some ^^

I finally got around to breaking out my box of Boyz!

And, I assembled a whole one Ork so far.

Oh yeah, I know it's pretty impressive. 

I'm trying to get ready for a Fantasy tournament here next month, so I have to work on my Chaos, or my Undead.  Not too much time for all my projects, but hey at least I started.

Hey everybody. I painted my first batch of Ork boyz.
I cant figure out how to post pics in the post so here are my photo buckets...I dont have the best camera in the world either but you still get so see some of the detail...

Im going for a Russian WW2 kinda style and my main list right now is a BW bash type list. SO the uniqueness of my army is going to come through the vehicles I manage to convert. But like I said, here are some boys I painted. Notice on some I put CSM backpacks and termie bolters and such...

And a conversion of my warboss. He started out as an ordinary Nob, then I realized I liked his face, so I added some more bits, and some more bits....then I decided to have him mangle a Chaos champ. I still have yet to paint him but I think he looks quite cool already.

Hi green brothers!

Name: Giovanni or Baldar, my warboss name is "Hoggwarz" know as Boss Hogg! (Hazzard docet)

Profile: Running orks recently, simply because I love the background and all the power and fun orks can give to a battle!

Current forces:
1x Ork warboss (painted)
5x Ork nobs (3 painted)
10x Boyz
2x Deffcoptas (all painted)
1x Dakka Jet with third supa shoota and red paint (just painted yesterday)

1x Deffcoptas conversion: painted at the 25th December as "Zanta Klaus, the angry Khriztmaz zpirit!"
P.S. Soon I will add some photos

Work in progress: At the moment I'm in a low-cash situation so I've no work in progress for now, I will finish paint the boyz meanwhile. In the future I'm going to buy some bikers or maybe a killacan!

Aloha future green buddies,

So my name is Balthazar The Conqueror but Balthazar for friends ;)

I'm playing 40k now for 3 years with Space wolves and I want to start a new army around the summer or later in the year. As everybody could guess this army is going to be ORKSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. At the moment I'm busy reading a lot about them and searching for what I want for play style. I'll be reading a lot in the mean time and probably going to ask a lot of questions in the hope to settle my mind on style and tactics.
I'm gonna start with an army of 1500Pt's and from there on we'll see. Off course I have an armylist in my mind as a starter and it will be on the other part of this forum for Q&R :).

Thx all for the futere help,pleasure,fun and toasted humiiieeeees !!!!!

Hello. I've been a long time time ork player since second edition came out, played through 3rd, skipped 4th and played through 5th. I've recently been on hiatus with my new Eldar army for the past two years and with the arrival of my own little grots, have been kept out of actual gaming for a while now. I'm still an avid putterer and I paint and model almost every evening. I'm hoping to start getting some games in with 6th edition and have pulled out my old boyz to strip and repaint, as well as add some new models to da collection. Unfortunately most of my models are of the older, less grandiose scale so I'm subbing models as I go, to get a more uniformed look. I've almost always played a Deathskull army, with some lean towards Bloodaxes.
