Default Which Ork clan should I have

I am getting to the point where I really ought to paint some of my models and I think the orks should get the first go however I am having real trouble working out what clan to paint them as

I originally wanted snakebites but I have far too much high-tech gubbinz fer that
Most of the metal, weapons and vehicles will be painted entirely with rust but I want to know what sort of colour the rest of it should be

heres the army list if that helps

Note: Not Goffs, too common & I'm not really into deffskulls either

Well, you can make your Clan! But from the looks of it, looks like a Goff Clan to me :P Maybe Blood Axes so you can be all kunnin' like :shifty: and still have that many Boyz.

I totally agree to create your own klan. With GW, I think there are far too big a
focus on the already established factions in the races of 40K.
I have tried once, to make a pure codex army, the Dark Angels...and wow I got bored :P
Now I'm doing Inquisitorial marines. (see the Hobby section after easter )

I like your list. I really do. But kick out a kopta and give your Burnas a ride and your Kans some Grotzookas.

From all the DAKKA you field, why not make a ork klan from it?
Like (your Warboss name)s Gunnaz!
"Runtskins Shellboyz", "Gorbagz FragDakkaz" etc. Sumthin like that?

The only limit is your own imagination

Cheers

Badmoons

You've got tricked out trukks and some cool gear (koptaz and kanz). I'd say badmoonz fits relatively well.

King Winter, I like your ideas best
1) I will do a freebootas clan, as I mentionned I have worked out part of the colour scheme but I need a main colour for the rest

2) I will update my list to include your suggestions, by removing 2 plain rokkitkoptas, I can get the 3 grotzookas and a looted wagon

If anyone wants to offer a suggestion for the main colour I need (not blue), then I would be most obliged

For colors I would just suggest looking around your house and in your closet. What colors do you like? When I made my tau army I was on an orange kick for some reason, so my army is blazing orange and blue. My orks are made of every clan, so I've got all the colors. Just pick what you think looks cool. Right now I'm leaning towards red and grey combos. Midnight blue and tan look really good together.

Try looking at a color wheel and choose colors that are next to, or opposite of each other:

Once you find some colors you like, plug them into the ork painter here, and see if they look good together. Remember that orks usually aren't uniform in their color choice. They may all like red, but only have one thing on them that is red. It would be rare for a red/grey army to have all the orks in red pants and grey shirts. Some would have red shoes/guns/shirts/pants/straps and grey helmets/hair/skin paint. The rest of their uniform would be a mix of dozens of different colors.

Here is the ork painter:

cheers scoutfox

I ended up deciding that a purple colour might look quite good and isn't like any of the codex clans
purple and rust as well as perhaps a bit of grey
