So I'm just starting an IG army based on Ork models. I'm open to all and any suggestions. Before I go overboard ordering Forgeworld models , this is what I'm thinking so far ...
It has all the random Orky elements I like with the chance to win a few games here and there. Thoughts on what to use - especially for Penal Legion.
"G.I.Jorks and Tings Dat Go Boom Klan"
Company Command Squad, Autocannon 60 (modeled as nob squad, autocannon are big guns w/ grots)
Marbo (modeled as Snikrot w/ bomb squig)
Platoon Command, Autocannon, GL 45 (modeled as nobs, autocannon are big guns w/ grots)
2X Combined Infantry Squad, 2 Autocannon 120 (modeled as ork mob, autocannon like big guns w/ grots)
Special Weapon Squad, 3 Demo Charges 95 (modeled as tankabustas w/ bomb squigs)
(drop at 125, modeled as above)
Platoon Command, Autocannon, GL 45
2X Combined Infantry Squad, 2 Autocannon, 2 GL 130
Special Weapon Squad, 2 Demo Charges 75
Penal Legion Squad 80 (unsure of what to use- suggestions?)
w/ Priest Eviscerator (modeled as weirdboy) 45
Vendetta Gunship 130 (ork fighta bomba, forgeworld)
Vendetta Gunship 130
Manticore 160 (ork gunwagon, forgeworld)
Deathstrike Missile Launcher 160 (ork grot bomb launcha, forgeworld)
Deathstrike Missile Launcher 160
1250 – 1500
Penal Legion=Grots in striped overalls? Might be interesting, with the priest a runtherd...

turning the gunwagon into a manticore would be interesting, i'd like to see pics of that one!
perhaps but I think that grots would be the best way to do the penal legion,
because there aren't really much variance in the ork models, although you could just paint orks in stripey overalls. good luck with the project, i'd love to see how it turns out.

I'm actually doing this EXACT same thing. Lootas are my HWs, Ork Boyz are all my infantry. Your vehicles seem good. For demo charges you could grab some Bomb Squigs, also shows off the 1 shot nature since you can remove them. It's actually not a hard fit for any models happily enough, I'm basically WYSIWYG, minus the green tide.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.
Like to talk Warhammer or want some advice on Armies or Tactics? Drop me a PM!
honestly i think this army konversion is one of thew most done
i wish before i spent all my money on orks i would have thought of a lizardman/ork 40k army
that would be cool
srry i have no help for your list but posibly is the IG section you will get more help
(you may not want to mention you will be Orkifying the list though, they may get angry, they are squishy little hummies after all)
Well, grots it will be for the Penal Legion with a Runtherder or possibly a Weirdboy with them as a Priest.
I might use Orks trukks with armor plating and Valkyrie wings for my Vendettas.
I'm also going to add a Commissar for the troops and model as a Big Mek.
I am using bomb squigs for demo charges.
I will post up pics but not before February - yeh, I know. I need to order some FW and parts and I'm still finishing my Eldar. But I promise they will be coming.
