Welcome to Librarium Online!
also see - http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ning-list.html (CHAOS ORCS, help needed planning a list!)
with the new chaos army coming out soon, i plan to put something into motion that has been on my mind for quite a while - a chaos orientated orcs and goblins army!
i hope that the end result will convert greenskins that are so chaosy, that they could be fielded as either chaos warriors, or an orcs/goblins army if i choose.
the obvious crossover points in the army would be:
orcs - marauders
ill probably mix in some goblin models on larger bases for effect, some chaos heads, black orc parts, and perhaps chaos weaponry.
goblin wolf riders - marauder cavalry
will use the new plastic chaos hounds enstead of wolves, and night goblin head swaps.
black orcs - chaos warriors
snotlings - nurglings (if allowed in new list)
orc cavalry - chaos knights
perhaps mount the orcs on the new horses
generally id like the orcs to be seen as something slightly more akin to the intelligence of one under chaos, as oppose to the more dim witted greenskin. the idea of an orc on a jugger seems quite a nice visual.
either running with a nurgle theme (plaguebearer orcs) or possibly khorne with red skin (though perhaps too warcrafty!...or just good old undivided.
i have a 10000pt dwarf army that I have been collecting since i was 15 (now 21), and this new army would be around as a casual opponent for it.
can someone help me design a 2000pt core list for an orc army, that can double up as a chaos warriors list too? the two lists can have about 500pts of units each that dont crossover into each as not to make a ridiculous unusable army!
preferences would include wolf riders (and goblins for the orc side). i have a soft spot for the old plastic night goblin models that will be used lots!
any conversion ideas, themes and other stuff please speak up!
when production begins photos will be posted. im starting work on some goblins tonight.

I would be happy to help...
i would go nurgle orks as they seem more comical and morefun to look at...
firstly i like the idea (chaos orks has been done but im not sure if they crossed over) i think you should start with 2 units of 25 choas maruaders (orks) fairly cheap with shields and LA (to repusent tougher skin) then go for a exsalted champion with MoN and filth mace and mabbe a enchanted shield for a cheap 1000pts lvl general then a unit of 17 (with character) chaos chosen warriors (black orks) with great wepons and shields or additional hand wepons...
i have no idea about OaG but we can plot that later start with units of maruaders (orks) as they will be the core of both the armies and are fairly cheap...
i rekon you could make two competertive armies out of this...
why dont you use snotling baces as spawn? could be useful.
that sounds cool. i agree with the nurgle orcs looking cool, im more of an artist than a gamer, and nurgle always have the most potential! and what you say about the toughness makes a good deal of sence!
if only they did plastic plague bearers. the head swaps would be neat!
hate to sound noobish, but would undivided affect things like nurgle/khorne influences? and can units take specific marks? i seem to remember the lost and the damned list for 40k having similar rules. (i should do my research!)
hmmm.....juggernaut hero orc...if only there were juggernauts of nurgle.....
you can mix marks all you like so you could have a tzenchian scorcror if you wanted.
you could do a khorn-nurgle but it wouldnt looks as cool as orks with bits falling of em...
but remember you cant mark maruaders so they do not count as haveing MoN but you can moddel them all how you like.
yea you could use trolls as chaos trolls or visa-versa...
and obviouosly you could do a giant with chaos bitz added (im currently thinking about a chaos giant myself).
just remember the new book is comeing so dont do too much antil we see the new chosens stats (outside of rumours).
just some figures ive started experimenting with, all with Nurgle mutations:
Chaos Warrior/Black Orc, 3 Marauders/Orcs
They should start to fit in more when painted. I found just making the orcs look like plaguebeares helps, as if they will eventually mutate into them. When in larger units i may convert some plaguebearers to orcs as to work from the other direction. Also want to add a few nurglings to bases.
thanks for pushing me towards nurgle WARHAMMER MADMAN!
Cool Orks and nice gobos...
you could make a unit of comon gobos for your OaG part of the force then convert them nurgly to be in tune with the rest of the army...
like the maruaders i love the idea of a huge unit of em.
am i right in thinking you want this army to be competetive as well as nice to look at?
if so 2 units of trolls coulnt go amis or a unit of chaos ogres with great wepons? to be used as ironguts (DoW) in the OaG army partly for playing resons and partly because as a nurgle player you could instead of gut-plates moddel intesines spilling out of the gut-plate hole?
but yea great conversions and i hope the rest are just as creative.
