Albino Orks...cool Dont know about the fluff impact of them, but they certainly do look good.
I dont see how there would be any fluff problem at all. In fact, according to fluff I would expect a huge amount of variance between individual groups. They are spores after all, and the plant kingdom has all of the colours of the rainbow.
I like them alot! Keep up the creativity.

I remember reading or hearing somewhere of someone using some kind of Chaos fluff for their Orks, perhaps Orks that 'worship' under Nurgle, whether you can call it Worship, maybe an agreement or fear.
The only problem I've had so far with painting them, apart from the sheer number, is their clothing/armour. Any kind of brown is a no go, since their skin works up from brown. Any ideas? Ork armour is by far the most irritating.
I'm doing orks myself and their armor and detail is indeed irritating. Since you worked up from a brown, you are trying to avoid "washout" with your schemes?
Consider putting some nice contrasting colors then, like red and or yellow(my favorite for my orks) Good luck, and please post progress pics!

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Firstly, I want to say that those Orcs look awsome.
To those talking about albino orc fluff...
Arnt orcs plants? And if they are plants and they photosynthesize then they must have chlorophyll. And therfor are green.
Main Entry: chlo·ro·phyll
Etymology: French chlorophylle, from chlor- + Greek phyllon leaf — more at blade
1 : the green photosynthetic pigment found chiefly in the chloroplasts of plants and occurring especially as a blue-black ester C55H72MgN4O5 or a dark green ester C55H70MgN4O6 —called also chlorophyll a chlorophyll b
2 : a waxy green chlorophyll-containing substance extracted from green plants and used as a coloring agent or deodorant
Now, I'm not saying those orcs dont look awsome but I'm fairly sure you cant have albino orcs using fluff that doesnt defy the laws of the universe as we see them today..
Haven't you ever seen red leaf plants? or black? While chloropyll is technically needed for plants to produce the food they need for growth, there are plants that manage without green leaves. There are even plants that grow without any sunlight at all (fungii), so you can't say that it's impossible, only uncommon.
Personally I love these Orks, they look really well painted, and if not unique in colour theme, then at least rare enough to really stand out.
Great work NaOH

Okayyyy, back to the er.. models?
I like the look, very original. I thought of doing something similar myself (albeit grey Orks) but never got around to it.
I think theyak's suggestion is a decent one - nice, contrasting colors would look good. That, or dark - black or dark grey, both are great colors, also consider metallics.
Would love to see more (and better pics).
