I'm seriously considering orks for my second 40k army, but the mini section on the GW site seems to be lacking in the ork department. I didn't see any kommandos, skar boyz, 'ard Boyz, et cetera. Am I expected to convert all of these models, or are they just falling behind on the website, or what?
Kommandos and skarboyz don't exists; you can find 2nd ed / Gorka Morka skarboyz. I use GM Snakebite boyz as my kommandos; the feathers, mohicans, and breechclothes make for pretty cool looking kommandos. Most people just convert their own skarz using regular boys, cutting in a few scars, and adding some extra bits. One idea is to buy yourself a box of fantasy orks and use the massive morning stars and other weapons to set your skarz apart.
There is a box set of 'ard Boyz but these are just the normal boyz sprues that happen to have the specific bodies wearing armored plates. IMO, you're better off just buying another box of boyz and then selecting those particiular models out (the ones wearing the metal chest plates and the heads with the helmets), adding the spikey bits and other stuff to make them look even more armored.
