Default Help army breakdown!!!!!!What should I collect im confused

Okay I have been dead set on Space Marines for ages and a week and a bit im not sure, I like the idea of Orks and there converting, Is there a way to get an ork army with a space marine look (well somthing more hi-tech).

You can convert your orks as you wish.
But there are some opportunities out from the codex.
You can loot some IG and SM units. So you can give your lootas the look of the unit, they have looted.
You can loot tanks from SM and IG.
You could get a few of the 2nd Ed. powerarmors. They look like SM-servos.
For your hq you can add a Big Mek mith Cyborks. you can built yur Cyborks with SM parts.

But in the end, remember, it's an Ork army not a SM.

Yeah im on about the orks themselves greens not my fav colour, I was thinkin of making a human race not recruted by the SM off of a feral world that are at the same level of technology as the orks. What do you think could it work?

The snots would be hard to convert tho

Feral Humans? Maybe some kind like the ones from Gorka-Morka. You could have a look in the feral ork list and change them for humans. For the conversions there was a chapter about Orkhunters in Chapter approved. They were a combination of Catachans and Orks.
For the fluff? Maybe a human warlord enslaving Orks. (If he's strong enough and beats the other Orks).
Snots? Actually there are no Snots left with the 3rd Ed.

You have to make yourself a little more clear.

spacecooky- those are ogres, not ogryns

Spaceknight- You say you want them to be high-tech, and looking like space marines, but using the ork rules?

Then you say you want to have a human race that are quite feral, that are at the same level of technology as the orks?

Feral humans and Space marines are completely different

You could have an ork army based on bulked-up catachan models, but then you need to decide what to use for each army option in the Ork codex

Well If green is not your colour then a feral orks look with looted SM parts is good. Paint your ork skins in dark grey/ black or any other combination you reckon could work.
Even the dark bony green that the ogre kingdoms have would be allright.......... But if you truly want them human looknig make them human colours, fleshy colours........!!!!!!!
im not sure its really up to you. But there was a mate of mine whos army was dedicaed to the art of looting. He had teams of lootas with 'ard armour' made of SM plates and he had makeshift cadian armour as elbow pads and knee pads. *some even had bolters and other had lasguns......... well-i-dont-know-why-orks-are-soo-dumb!........... His vechiles were looted, his weapons were looted, his armour was looted, his ....scenery.... is looted (walls made of spare lasguns and helmates, tanks parts and dead marines-- power-armour-is-good-to-hind-behind)

As for high tech simply make them cyborks and mech boys
