i am thinking about starting an Orc army but I was curious if I could field entirely Orcs or black orcs? I just really like the models and need some expert advise.
You Can't feold a entire army of Black Orcs as they are a special choice, although you can get Black Orc heroes to LEAD your army and their is Black Orc Special Charcters that join the Unit of Black Orcs.
It would be extremely tough and unfair army (for your opponent if you could feild an army that is just full of mobs of Black Orcs.
And I agree with you that the Black Orc models look fantastic.;Y
If you are looking to start an army may I suggest the 'Battle for Skull Pass' box set. This gives you 60 Night Goblins (40 with spears, 20 with bows) a Troll, 10 Spider Riders, and 2 Night Goblin heroes (a Shaman and a Big Boss), as well as a 30+ Dwarf models. You could get a friend of yours who doesn't play Warhammer but would like to start and collect Dwarfs to buy them of you.
I went halves with a friend of mine who collects Dwarfs and its worked out for the better, he's got some extra models for his army and I've started my new army.

You can field an army that is comprised entirely of orcs and black orcs. Regular orcs are very cheap 6 points with shields, so they can be massed effectively. They are s4 in the first round of combat, which 9 times out of 10 is the ONLY round of combat. And boar boyz are well, more manouverable and tougher than regular orcs! Fielding an all orc army is not only possible it is a great choice for any general who wants of horde of t4 s4 models at their disposal. Just be warned that animosity will get the best of at least one of your units each round. Black orc bosses will help quell the animosity, and orc shamans have some great supportive spells at their disposal.
