How do I paint non-greenskinned Orruks?

Does anyone know how to get a feeling of a no green skinned orruk? 

like ones in the lotr series, maybe rakarth flesh with some kislev flesh and topping it off with agrax?

and which orruk box do you think matches the style of these?

Non green Orruks what sort of crazy talk is this????? 😉

Have a google for LoTR painting guides they certainly did some back then for nongreen Orcs, I recall them doing all sorts of skin colours.

I went with a non-traditional color scheme for my Ironjawz.  I wanted red armor, but I also did not want them to be "Christmas colored" with red and green.  As such, I went with a blue scheme.  Base of Reaper Darkness, followed by a layer of Sotek Green, wash with Agrax Earthshade, and then layer on Sotek Green again.

And hey, they are still technically "green-skinned" with that color scheme ;)

I also wanted to do something with my orruks, making them a little less green that is. So I went with a pale, oliv/green look. Forgive my horrible pictures!

My favourite pale flesh approach is

Kislev Flesh as the base coat

Wash with Reikland Fleshshade

Drybrush Rakkath Flesh and a lighter drybrush with Palid Wych Flesh

 

You could consider swapping out the Reikland Flesh shade with either Athoian Camoshade (to give a hint of green) or Nuln Oil (shadowy grey flesh) or Drakenhof Nightshade (for a blue, dead flesh colour)
