Shootas or Sluggas? Depends on who you are fighting, but I almost always go Slugga Boyz. 9 out of 10 times I use Slugga Boyz just because they are just awesome in close combat.
The main reason I went Orks was because everyone played some chapter of Marines and it was driving me nuts. I wanted a unique army that had such large options for conversions and painting. Another reason I went Orks was just because they are plain fun to play with. I didn't want a serious army, I just wanted to play the game and laugh at myself getting killed!

First off. Slugga boys are better than Shootaboys and the only reason to get shootaboys is if you're going to go shooty which you only will if you have a Nob with a bosspole so that other squads can mob up with it when you need to "go fer 'unuver go".

And the reason for Orks is simple. Conversions!!!
Tacticly Orks are only 1 step higher on the tactical ladder than "Charge!" but they are THE most conversion friendly army in the game in the terms of gear&gadgets.
While chaos can get overtly serious and grim ork conversions can be anything from creating grim bloodthirsting monsters to wacky dudes with the movie "Grease" or "American Ninja 3" as the overall theme for the army.

In my mind Bloodaxes&Evil sunz are the most fun simply because they motivate you to do the craziest conversions.
Deathball, the new game of bloody basketball, 40k style!

Hi Bulgrim! Welcome to the board!

I chose to play orks as a second army because my first army is biel-tan eldar! My orks are the exact contrast from my eldar. I wanted to play something totaly different. My eldar are serious, shooty and outnumbered! My orks are funny, close combat oriented and there is so much of them!  ;D

I would suggest reading every little bit about the different clans, and pick one you like. If you like several parts from the clans go freebooter.

Nazgrim 'The Scythe' Ard Gor is part of the Bad Moon Clan and so my army is shooty with all the choppy parts have xtra wargear; Ard Boyz, Burna Boyz, Dreads, Mega Ar. HQ. etc.

Ah!  I forgot!  :) They are dumb!  ;D It's not really a bad point... it's a lot why I chose them! There is always a way your orks will do something they should have not done. By the way, you should have some sense of humor to play orks!

sounds like a good list  but i think i wanna use more of a march up army, i know it will probably get shot up but thats why i'll use kroot as sheilds  :D and aslo, i wanna use dreads, basically i know slightly what i want in my army,
 i wanna have:
 obviously an hq, but all in mega armour,in a battlewagon, along with like 15 ard boys in there too, also i wanna have one dread, a looted basilisk, maybe killa kans and  like 40 slugga boys just marchin it up, well not 40 cuz some would be tankbustas and maybe another aquad in a trukk
