whould Krone orks be ok
like they stoped worshipping gork and mork and switched to Krone?(if he can corupt SMs it whould'int be hard to switch an ork. All he would have to do is say somthing like i will let you kill more?)
Hey, you can do whatever you like, you could even model mutations on them if you want, or use armour parts from the Khorne Berserkers. There is some fluff about corrupted orks. I remember one particular campaign based around a possessed gargant, though the orks were worshipping that out of ignorance more than intention, they probably believed it was a living embodiment of gork or mork, whom gargants are built to resemble anyway. I suspect orks would probably see khorne worship as a bit 'unorky.' Much of their knowledge and beliefs are genetic, after all, so they're probably predisposed towards worshipping their own gods, though they might mistake what they know of khorne to be a manifestation of gork's power.
However, remember that you can't mix codexes. whatever you do, don't try and include a bloodthirster in your ork army, or give units the mark of khorne. It doesn't work, and it makes no sense either. Orks aren't as important to the gods as space marines, and less predictable to boot, so they don't get kewl stuff.
Orks dont have the right sense of mind to turn to chaos, but i suppose if Khorn payed them with enough teef they might align with him. I dont see why not, but Ork Clans are so much cool than any Chaos legion.
orks arnt necesarily stupid at all. They have the most powerful anti tank weapons, force fields, Mad doks that can repair wounds on a 3+ and if their smart enough to figure out how to build/fix/use Imperial Tanks, then how much dumber are they actualy?
oh! And if you do decide to make Khornate Orks, dont take any inspiration from Adi Woods Chaos Orks. Those are extremly dull, stupid looking, and poorly converted. Im sure you could do better.

So what happened to the Necrontyr's mastery of force fields, that surpasses both that of the Imperium and the Eldar? And most powerful anti-tank weapons? Give me one nonrandom strength weapon that is better than a Bright Lance or similar with a Targeting Matrix, if you're so into gaming terms.

They don't build the tanks. Plus the fact that ork serjery (or however you spell it) can consist of just stapling heads back on, they don't need to be smart about it. And oddboyz do their trade instinctively, there's no learning about it. If you consider instinct to be smarts then fine. I personally don't.
Plus the fact that "many ork weapons should not work and indeed do not work unless wielded by an ork" (3rd ed. Ork Codex). Their psychic field fixes so many things for them, again bypassing the need for smarts.
But Chaos orks are wonderfully sinister. Orks are the galactic immune system and to subvert that is very evil indeed. But I don't see Gork as an aspect of Khorne, more an expression of the ork psyche. Likewise for Mork and Tzeench. Find a way to get orks to go against their nature though and you're set. I wish you luck.
Never said either of them were, dude. In fact, I'm not a fan of that idea at all, though I know it has been proposed.Originally posted by Xerxes@Jan 8 2005, 21:54

I'm simply saying that an ork might mistake a more indirect manifestation of khorne (like a possessed vehicle, not a bloodthirster or bloodletter) as being something to do with gork. If your gargant suddenly goes beserk and develops unholy powers, an ork probably wouldn't say 'hmm.. looks like a manifestation of chaos.' He might well say, 'Ooh.. obviously gork likes us, our gargant can kill more stuff.'
I think you're a bit harsh on those guys. Instinctive cleverness can give real science a run for its money. Ork technology is easily competative with that of the Imperium, orks just don't possess any understanding of it beyond 'if I do this, this happens, and it feels good and orky to boot.'
i have neaver seen an ork fluff.... it kinda sounds like orks all ready got a fluff :unsure:ok, think of the biggest, stupidest idiotic mindset you can muster. then times that by 10, and make all of them stronger than national weight lifting atheletes we have. add greenskin and a penchent for violence. viola! a fresh baked ork!
