Alternate Orruk Skin Colours?

Recommended Posts

Orruks/Orks tend to look pretty good in a variety of colors. Some 40k examples Ive found.

I'm not sure what colors they come in lorewise, but one random idea I had was for ashen-skinned savage orcs with tattoos that sort of mimick lava streams and obsidian weapons, could be Aqshy-themed even. 

Kind of like the Blackrock Orcs from warcraft? They got dark/ash skin tones.

I’m thinking of a killteam style brute squad to skirmish with blackish skin. Paint the shadows purple and work up to grey edges. 

I tested it on Garreks reavers but it ended up too light. Second model much better but don’t have the picture. (miniwargaming has a free purple skin tutorial which I used). In my head it will work amazing for orks*... real life... not sure yet ;) 


* might just paint them black with a white dot as autocorrect keeps changing orruk to orka 🤨 (Dutch for killer whale)
