Default Army Inspirations

It seems like they were a lot of different inspirations for the orks as a whole. I thought it would be cool to discuss what inspires each of us most with our own armies.

My biggest inspiration has been the barbarian clans. I first got the idea from the goffs clan, as it seemed that the name a play style were a reference to ostrogoths/visigoths. I based my core unit selection to be barbarian inspired; I have two battlewagons overflowing with orks eager to get pillaging, ?These are my longboats. I also have a squad of nob bikers, which are like the privileged nobles who are wealthy enough to afford horses and armor. I didn't really like the goffs paint scheme, so I went with the deff skullz instead, who sort of remind me of the Vandals.

Mine is more or less themed as a Mad Max style roving post apocalyptic gang, which is probably the inspiration for Evil Sunz in the first place. Nothing too incredibly original but I like it!

I just play a typical Red Sunz list though a bit more of the Nobz side. Nob Bikerz and Battlewagonz!

Not sure what part of my psyche came up with the swamp theme, cause its not like I live in the everglades, but I really like how my warband has a theme represented throughout. I think the orks allow you to do this more than any other army, and they can get away with almost any theme too. From Metalocalypse, to chaos, to Kelly's heroes they all work.

I completely agree, there is so much room for creativity in an ork army, for background, conversions, etc.

I wanted to start my army because it seemed fun to paint. After looking at the different clans I went with Blood Axes and I've painting every model with a different camo scheme and they're a blast to paint.

The Main influence behind my orks are Footy fans - Namely the ones drunk enough to fight with anyone about anything, coupled with a good sense of British Thugness.

Mines kind of similar to Wargamer's, deathwing.
My favourite thing about orks is the phyilosophy "We'z can do it betta!!!"
