Default Fluff 'bout da boyz question

So, I'm toying with the idea of starting an Ork army. I don't really want them to be green though, my Tau are green and I don't want more Green. So I have this idea, what if I painted their skin blue due to a genetic defect from radiation on their planet? So my question is, would this be reasonable?

Yeah sure, why not? Orks are basically vegetables (even the fluff says that they grow from spores), you can get blue plants, so why not blue Orks? Go for it!

no worries. The Ork section of the forum and the hobby section has literally thousands of questions and answers about Orks, and loads of inspiring pictures. Just have a look through a few of them, and you'll be ready to take of the galaxy

Actually you can have blue orks if you still wanna stick to the fluff.
There is an Ork Clan called Deathskulls that paint themself blue when they go to Waaargh.
Ive written this down directly from the Ork Codex about them so you can read it yourself

The Deathskulls are plunderers without equal.
They are tremendously good at looting, borrowing, scrounging, and notoriously bad at giving them back. Deathskulls would make capable scientists and excelent engineers if their fascination for new things lasted longer then the time it took to steal them.

The Deathskulls see battle as a two-stage process, often hurrying the killing part in an effeort to speed along the scavenging spree that follows.
After the battle the Boyz really go to work, feverishly stripping the corpses of the fallen of everything from ammunition to bootlaces.
Many Deathskulls will take grisly trophies such as their victim's scalp or skull into the bargain. Only when the loot is returned to the camp does the inevitabble infighting break out as the Deathskulls trade, barter and auction off their ill-gotten gains.

Deathskulls use a horned death's head as theur totem.
Once they have stolen something they personalise it to establish ownership once and for all. This is often involves paining it blue, the colour which they belive attracts the eye of their gods and protects them from harm. The superstitious Deathskulls even use blue warpaint, sometimes going as far as to paint themselves blue from head to toe the night before battle.

I also found this link from Games-Workshop how they paint there Deathskulls and some other Clans

Hope this post will make you even more excited about making blue Orks
