Default Need help choosing clans

Its now time for me to start painting my boyz. Because it is a KOS list I want boyz from all the clans to be represented. Below I have each Codex unit entry and what my thoughts were for their clan. Please add cc if you have any as some of my choices may not make sense.

I would also add that all the vehicles will be painted red and be driving by Evil Sunz boyz except the Looted Wagon which will be driven by Death Skullz boyz.


HQ:

Warboss on bike: I was actually thinking of doing a Snakebite Warboss mounted in the Fantasy Chariot pulled by Cold Ones. Seems odd that a Snakebite would lead a KOS army, but Orks never made much sense. Plus any Ork can love to go fast, and more than bikes can go fast.

Warboss on foot: I'm thinking this would be a Goff Warboss.

Big Mek: I'm leaning towards Bad Moons here. It has to cost a lot of teef to buy tools.

Weirdboy: Snakebite here too I think. I think of the weirdboy as a Shaman Ork.


Elites:

Nobz on bikes: Snakebites riding Cold Ones.
Nobz on foot: Goffs

Meganobz: Bad Moons, cause no one else can afford that much armor.

Burna Boyz: Not sure

Tankbustas: Bad Moons, for the same reason as Meganobz.

Lootas: Death Skulls; is there any reason to explain why.

Kommandos: Blood Axes.


Troops:

Boyz: Evil Sunz as they will all be mounted in Trukks

Ard Boyz: Probably Goffs

Gretchin: I doubt I'll ever use them, they don't really fit in KOS.


Fast Attack:

Stormboyz: Goffs

Warbuggies/bikes: Evil Sunz

Deffkoptas: I think I'll do Death Skulls here too, because I'm going to use looted Space Marine Bikes and Tau Piranhas to build the koptas.

Heavy:

Dreads/kans: Not sure if I'll ever use these guys either. Any ideas?

Flash Gitz: Bad Moons, but I'll probably never use these either.

Big Gunz: Death Skullz? Grots with blue face paint make me smile.


I feel like I am really lacking in Blood Axes. What other units besides Kommandos fit their profile? What about Stormboyz? Instead of the GW made ones I could use Space Marine Jetpacks the Blood Axes aquired. Think that would work? Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

Blood Axes? Imperial looted vehicles, for sure! Those deff koptas could be Axes, fx. Besides, dreads and kans are perfect goffs. Stompy and mean.

Do you have / are you gonna use all this?

Personally, I have a bad moon cult of speed army - I gotta congratulate your choice, Kult of speed is generally good fun!

Nice Idea - but could you do one thing? Make sure that they don't look like pure copies of Cold ones? Or maybe giant squigs?! Anyways - just make them fit in with the 40k background and not look like they have been ripped from the fantasy range.

How about death skullz? They are the salvagers of the ork world, and you have to have a good argument against them not using their tools as weapons.
