This thread rocks! Thank you for helping me realize I need to go more ork.
There is, however, one thing missing from this thread.... This:

Cause they are kinda stupid. And not very good fighters.

And the only ork I consider orky and a good fighter is Grikk and he is gray.

I find it Ironic, people say that I need to be more like Grikk, and i like Grikk, but we were both used as examples of what an ork "should" look like at the "how to be a Greenskin" class at RagnarORK.

There's some good advice in here, but let's talk briefly about the more common approaches to greenskins in Dag:

Greenskins for Dagorhir:

Step 1: Watch Mad Max 2 & 3

Step 2: Go to thrift store and approximate Mad Max 2 & 3 to best of ability.
Penny pinching tip: Mad Max would have wore bondage pants if they had them in apocalypse Australia, so go for it!

Step 3: Rub some green and black paint on.
Penny pinching tip: Meh, forget about the paint thing.


Nothing can hide in the light.

i just had a neat thought!  if you're already an Orc but you're generic and you want a way to personalise your character, answer this:  Where are you from?  if you've mostly stuck around the same area, i'll bet you dress like the other folks there.  because that's who you've killed and ransacked the most....

...So if you're an orc around Vikings, you'll dress more like a Viking...
Nope. Dead wrong. If you're an Orc near vikings you'll be either a' running yer green arse off, or our new flower garden.

I know yer kind is slow, so I'll make the last part simpler fer ye. Dead.

Oddly enough this makes me wonder if i cut an orc open could i stick a seed in his entrails and watch a tree sprout and flourish, fed by his rotting remains.

that was the first thing on my mind, too.  love those books.  not so much the Shadow series.  but i just found a fairy tale novel he wrote called Enchantment.  it was really neat.  time travel, magic, and Medieval Russia.
if i ever choose an actual persona name i might use Celaeno, the harpy from The Last Unicorn and actual Greek mythology.  it's mine, you can't have it!

Yeah, loving the hate on the greenskinz and other monstahs.

I LOVE going goblyn, it's a blast... Plus it's funny to see a gobo beat the ever living hell out of orks, dwarfs, and stick-jocks :P

Besides EVERYONE knows the rare greenskinz are the best (cough lizard men cough)... orkz are WAAY too common. I blame the poor garb :P

Who said they can't be homeless hippies? It's a fantasy character so an ork can be whatever an ork wants to be. It's one thing if you want to post your opinion about real historical matters, but don't spit out your ill-gotten opinion of "what an ork should be" just because you have one.

I say so.
Being an ork (goblin, monster, whatever) is not an excuse to look like poo.
And the entire point of this write up was to educate current and future orks to the fact that it is time to change our garb standards and look good.

Many orcs go the nomad or scavenger route where they equip anything they can, thus the tattered mismatch look. 

Don't forget other orcs are organized and tribal.  That's where our look comes in.  Sure there are patches and stitches, but most of us where similiar armor designs with our own personal touch.  Tribals also adhere to a militaristic hierarchy with battle formations and complex tactics.

On then topic of color, we've got green, black and grey orcs.  So although I would be happy to chant alongside Urk Kuldar, not all orcs is green, but we still love you knuckleheads!

I think the main point here is that while the scavenger look is good for orcs, they should look like they've been scavenging from looted medieval villages - not from Value Village. That's a significant detail.

Orks also dont look like homeless hippies...

Who said they can't be homeless hippies? It's a fantasy character so an ork can be whatever an ork wants to be. It's one thing if you want to post your opinion about real historical matters, but don't spit out your ill-gotten opinion of "what an ork should be" just because you have one.

Thank you, but I'm happy being a good looking orc.  ;D
