i know the Daemon hunters Codex allows for Chaos influenced Orks (even a posessed Warlord) in its Adversaries list, i know these would be extremely isolated and exceptional (Orks resistant and abhorrent to Chaos) there is an amzing picture of Nurgle Orks (with nurgle markings on their fcked up armour) which implies an entire wwarband devoted to Nurgle, anyone remember Knornate Ork Stromboys from Freebooterz which also had an option of an Ork Chaos Warband
anyway any comments? example history of specific warbands and their feats?
I don't have much existing fluff, sorry. But check out this article for some good examples of why such things might exist.
Chaos orks are quite reasonable, I think though it's probably rare to see huge bands, unless a waagh accidentally hulk-hikes into the eye of terror or gets stuck in the warp.
If you are looking for fluff on the subject of Chaos Orks, you might want to take a look at the graphic novel â€˜Bloodquestâ€™ by Gordon Rennie and Colin MacNeil, in which there appears (although shortly) a Daemon-possessed Ork Warboss. However, it seems that his warband is not dedicated to Chaos, as the Orks rebel against their Chaos-worshipping masters when given the chance.
Apart from that, though, I canâ€™t at the moment recall any other fluff on the subject.

i loved the idea of Khornate Stormboyz in Freebooterz, i find it harder to understand the Nurgle Orks that that picture on the Daemon Hunters adversaries article has, although i think they look fcking raw!!
If you look through the old model range there were some cool looking freebooter chaos orks
This makes me think of the Chaos Orcs in Warcraft III. They are really cool, imagine red Orks!
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
hehe now they were class, all the firey eyes and red skin, like twice the size.
if there isnt any already we should create our own fluff for them

I have a chaos ork army! Yeah, they are hell-fun to convert and very easy to. The concept is a little shakey but once you get going - its all downhill (in a good way!)
Any of you older veterans will remember the "muties," not the ones from Gorkamorka but before that - warbands always used to have a few rag-tag regiments of mutant orks following them around but they usually got eaten by their comrades before their careers could go too far.
The fluff surrounding my guys is this: the warboss 'found' a suit of chaos-termie-armour and stole it. Then the suit began to deform him and his boyz in turn. Once in a while, usually during a battle, the mutation will undergo a sudden excellaration and the boss will turn into an even huger hulking beast than he was before. (I use an obliterator/ork with numerous mutant followers.)

One thing which no one seems to have a plausible answer to is why you should have chaos-worshipping orks. Chaos-influenced (mutants) is reasonable, but why would they turn their backs on Gork and Mork at all?
