All armies in the 40k universe have possible themes but apart from the following ideas that are already well know what other themes can an Ork army have?
Chaos Possessed Orks
Back in 2nd edition and I think even now the Storm boyz are a very regimented and thoroughly millitarized group of Orks. Maybe there could be a whole army of Orks that are in some respects like the IG? The blood axes strike me as spending enough time around humans to develop into something like that.

The ork clan listing gives a nice beginning theme for an ork army, with the new book if you've seen it, it gives some descriptions of the clans to assist people in developing their orks. I personally like the Badmoons going back to the Flashgitz from 2nd edition generation models.
I like the idea of an ork force, who is obsessed with shooting/ weapons/ having the most expensive wargear and still dead ard to boot. Lots of vehicles, lots of rukus.

You could do a "copycat" Space Marines army. Blood Angels or Space Wolves would make the most sense. Say your warboss fought them and lost or barely won, so gained a ton of respect for them, so he stole their tactics and, of course, fought them again. Use some 'eavy armor orks, looted vehicles, dreds, etc.
There's also the "Deffwing" army: All Mega Armored Nobz and Dreds.
A cool idea I saw a while ago was for an ork Mafia. You would use lots of drive-bys, probably with shoota mobs in trukks, using the shoota that looks kind of like a tommy gun.
That is the concept I've been mulling over.
Take some stormboys (who can resist a group of orks that run camps for poor misunderstood ork teens who are attracted to a more ordery life style? lol)
Kommanos ( Snikrot too, but i just like that dude!)
Throw in some tanks and tankbustas for demolition experts and your good to go
In the Castle of Pain on a Mountain of Skulls I sat on a Throne of Blood. What was will be, what is will be no more. Now is the season of Evil!

I'm just sticking the deffskull theme so I'm gonna have at least 30 lootaz, even a lot of other units will be converted to carry enemy stuf.
