Need help finding the picture that humorously explains how ork colors work scientifically.
Something about the frequency the colors emits and such.

Meanwhile I will upload some random war40k related pictures

It's nothing to do with wavelengths.
It's WAAAAAAAGH!

Question: Suppose a clan of orks mutated Red-Green colourblindness, in that they perceived each as the other. Would they move faster, or would they know they were green and thus move at the same speed but also retain their natural orkiness?
What if one ork were born red-skinned?

It's because they're a joke. RT era 40k was full of them.

A poem "Dark Angel" was written by a Victorian poet named "Lionel Johnson". The poem is about the authors aching homolust for another man (The titular "Dark Angel"). The joke, is that the horrible shame that split the Dark Angels is that the Fallen are fags, and that homosexuality is the secret they've been hiding: They're all closet fags and are trying to make up for it. Read the poem and about the author here:
http://www.thedarkfortress.co.uk/librarium/lionel_johnson.htm

RT era 40k was zany. Hell, the greatest Orky threat to the galaxy was named after Margaret Thatcher, after all.

>Pink is the Ork colour of stealth and sneaking.
Just to be the stick in the mud;

Ork "stealth" is actually a mish-mash of misinterpreted information stolen from other races. Neon Orange and blue tiger stripes with yellow berets, pink pola-dots on white, orks understand that "camouflage" is something that helps them sneak, but they don't actually understand the core principles behind it, or even what the word really means. So they'll try and copy the camouflage of the IG regiment they were hired by.. and fail hilariously because the only paint they have is bright yellow and baby blue.

I think they explain it in-depth in the 2nd edition Ok codex.. but it's been more than a few years since I've seen that book..

When people assume that Orks are retarded.

No, you numbskull, Kommando Orks are actually quite capable of hiding. That's why they're so fucking scary, because they actually understand the concept of stealth.

>> No.19682952

>>19682826
They did kind of change that a bit with Grotsnik however. he is described as deciding he needed to be sneakier, so he forsook most of his clothes to let his greenness blend in with the foliage, and used soot to black all the metal on his weapons and equipment.

Although, he is the "sneaky" special character, so typical Blood Axes are probably still less clever.

I like to think the more successful ones blunder onto working unconventional camo schemes without really meaning to. (The kinds that break up outlines, etc.) Also, some of the flamboyant red and orange schemes would work in some kinds of deserts and badlands, or places with reddish brick.

If the Bloodaxes simply resorted to stealing fabric from IG regiments they were fighting or copying it, they would get semi useful camo mostly by accident that way too.

>Suggesting that some Orks fail to understand the basic idea of stealth even though some of them can sneak quite well. IE, being retarded.

Look, are there Orks that dress in outlandish colors and try and sneak around? Sure, I bet there are. I also bet those are the ones that the guardsmen shoot and laugh at how stupid Orks are.

And then, later on, they get surprised as fuck and murdered by the Orks who actually do understand stealth and do it correctly.

Orks might be silly as all fuck, but they aren't bad at war. Not at all. Some of them might do stupid things, but not all of them.

Or are you one of those faggots who believes that Orks make everything work by thinking it'll work?

>> No.19683368

Blood Axes have the mentality to battle in a more conventional sense. Their camo doesn't work too well, but at least it'll break up their silhouette.

>> No.19683402

Ork kommandos kind of have a failsafe considering the imperial cult's brainwashing.

"Hey, IG Trooper 479, do you see that? There? Is that an ork?"
"No way, orks don't sneak! That's impossible!"
"Oh shit, they're totally orks! They're stabbing me! Sound the alarm!"

Quit strawmanning, buddy. Here, check this out; it's from the same era that has Kommandos wearing retarded camouflage.

How is that strawmanning? Sure, I took a cheap shot at you for your likely retarded beliefs, but I didn't argue against just those retarded beliefs.

I explained why you called Orks retarded with greentext, and then provided an example of how Orks can use retarded camo(and die for it) and how they can use propa camo(and actually accomplish something, like kommandos actually do).
