Default Ork army using guard models.

Hey guys.
I had a crazy idea the other day, making a IMP Guard army, but use the ork rules. I want it to be like a penal legion sort of thing but a more accurate representation.
What do you guys think?

I think it would take a fair bit of work. You would really have to model them well to avoid the army being confusing. Catachan with axes and ramshackle vehicles would get you at least part of the way. It really has to look more like an Ork army than a Guard army.

I think that the BS2, T4 and furious charge would ruin the effect of the army to be honest.

I agree with Tarik.
However would you be painting skins green?
I think that could look a bit weird maybe but the idea is cool.

Don't get me wrong, an Orky 'feel' to the army would be pretty cool. I just don't think the rules work too well for any guard-equivelant force.

Like I said, it might not be too bad with the Catachan models. They already have ridiculous muscles. There are Ork-hunter regiments on Armageddon that have pretty much embraced the Ork style of waging war, so it is not entirely without precedent.

Ok, sory i left this so long, i completely forgot i made this thread. I think now i'm just going to make it a characterful platoon of guardsmen instead. So thanks, but no thanks. You guys are right, it would just be a bit silly.

This thread can now be locked if you see fit.
