White, with Black, makes you roight proppa and ded 'ard. Brown is old-time, old-fashioned, or 'tradition' (Snake Bitez). Orange is just lighter-red, and still used for speed, but has the added implication of fire or burning.

Essentially, 90% of Orks loot. They will only completely build something themselves if there is no other source to steal what they need from.

Take an Ork Trukk. Only a very small part of it would have been manufactured by an Ork, and if it is, it had likely melted down from something belonging to another race. Everything else has been cobbled together from a wide-variety of sources. A bit of a lift-loader from here, the engine from a supply truck there, garnished with cut-up Chimera armor plating. They simply are not a race of industry, they take what they need and refit it to their purposes.

However, in the more traditional sense of "Looting", yes, Deffskulls are the most notorious for taking weaponry from other races and rather than completely gutting it and turning it into something else, just refitting it for an Ork's use or adding extra Orkiness to it.

Not true. Clans like the Goffs (traditionally, not per the latest codex's "Ultramarines" treatment of them) have been very anti-looting. The most they will do, is salvage scrap metal. But it is just that, literally cutting apart an entire tank beyond it's component parts and using just the metal, to rebuild into something of their own liking. Orks do have slaves who mine resources (especially grots), do forge their own materials, and do build their own equipment. Some clans are particularly noted for doing so. Others don't necessarily care where their raw materials come from. And others are more than happy to improve upon an existing design and salvage it, keeping much of the gun/tank/ship/whatever in it's basic shape. And that, is 'looting' in it's basest explanation, and something the Deffskulls do extensively. Other clans... not so much.

>> No.20039467

So what you're saying is that the non-sneaky Orks wear camo, but think they are sneaky. Or maybe it helps them be sneaky, but hurts their perceptiveness since they're unable to find the purple-pink Orks. Or maybe the purple-pink Orks are just that much better at the sneaking?

That would be why you've heard that garbage.

The Blood Axes mimic human and other 'non-ork' armies, and have historically (in fluff) been keen on Camo because it's sneaky and seems to work well for the 'oomies.

The most common purple/pink armies in the game are either attempting to show royalty (purple), or decadence (pink). Orks are neither of those, and as such do not officially use those colors as they are very commonly associated with Eldar, or Slaanesh. Neither of which are things Orks like or want to be associated with. They just aren't "proppa" colors.

The thing to also remember is there is a very common theme for what a color does or means for the Orks, and with what the color symbolically means. Red for instance is fast. This is an unconscious thing we, as humans, associate with red. It also has to do with blood and voilence, or revolution. Hence it's fitting for Orks that in theme, Red means "Faster" as it also means they can get to the fighting quicker "tie in with violence".

For humanity, yellow typically symbolized happiness, wealth (especially gold), or intelligence. Well the last one might not necessarily apply, but Yellow is certainly eye-catching, and it has ties with wealth and bright explosions or flashiness for the Orks.

Blue is typically serene, and tranquility. But it has also been used historically as warpaint as well. While the serene and tranquil nature of the color blue means nothing to Orks, the clan that does use it tends to view it as 'lucky' and dab it on in large amounts as warpaint. Not too unlike the Scottish during the middle ages.

Black is a dark, brooding color, and when paired with white is all about contrast and very stark differences. You don't get a much harsher color combination as black and white, and it does fuck with the eyes quite a bit (a lot of optical illusions are black/white patterns). Hence the biggest, meanest, harshest clan of Orks favors the harshest color combination... Black and White.

Brown is associated most commonly with leather, and nature. Hence why the Snakebites favor it, as they're all about 'old-fashioned tradition' and don't particularly favor the technological approach to things.

Therefore the traditional color themes to purple/pink do not coincide with Orks in the least. Orks are neither regal, or noble (purple). Nor are they particularly feminine, frilly, or dainty (pink). Hence why neither of those colors has a meaning for the Orks, and why neither color is part of one of the major 6 clans. It's not about no one having seen a Pink Ork (I've seen plenty, even blood-axes painted pink to mimic Emperor's Children). But rather it's because the implications and meanings behind those colors do not coincide with the underlying themes of Orks.

Warbosses use 'noble' names (Arch Overfiend, for example), but there is nothing truly 'noble' or 'royal' about them in the traditional sense. Warbosses come to power by being the biggest and best fighter. Not because their birth dictates it. The Orks actually are baffled at how humanity can follow someone who is has no visible or discernible reason why he should be in charge (i.e., not the biggest like a Nob or Warboss).

No, there's just been some exceedingly idiotic ork fans on /tg/ that don't pay attention to their actual background. The same kind who think they can fly a jet out of fuel, or fire bullets from a metal pipe.

The problem isn't an influx of "no fun zone ork fans", but rather that there are a lot of "lol randumb slapstick" ork fans. Orks are neither. They are humorous, but not in a "Hurr never seen purple Orks means purple = stealth", or "durr Blood Angels have overcharged engines because Orks believe red is faster applies to them". Neither of those are supported anywhere in fluff. What IS supported in fluff, is that the humor for the Orks is very pitch black. In the same sense as shovelling wave after wave of your own men into the enemy, because they'll run out of ammunition. If anything... in very bizarre sense, the humor ingrained into the Orks bears a lot of resemblance to stuff found in Black Adder or Portal.

I think you're honestly confused over the semantics of 'fanon.' The little jokes that /tg/ turns into it's own canon is called 'fanon.' It's obvious by its name that it's "Fan-based canon." If you think that most people on /tg/ think it's fanon is GW Canon, then I have to wonder if you're Jon Snow.

Whilst I completely agree, Brothers of the Snake is a Space Marine book (and one of the only good ones at that). They just happen to face a horde of Orks wearing pink in it.

Hence why the only ork-related book worth reading, is Deff Skwadron.

>And are the comics part of BL?
Yes. They are by extension. BL was responsible for Warhammer Monthly and the comics released under GW's license.

So? All BL books have to be taken with a serious dosage of salt. Keep in mind even the better ones pull shit that makes you wonder why the fuck it was allowed. Keep in mind, Gaunt kills a dreadnought with a power sword and hot water.

Forgive me, but I'm very dubious of a marine book throwing an arbitrary punching bag in with any serious respect or regards to that victim.

Why are BL so shitty at writing proppa orky stories? the old RT/2nd ed era codexes and shit had great short stories about makari getting his teeth pulled out by debt collectors or a yoof getting upset because one of his arms has come off and he cant find it, and all sorts of fun stuff.

Because BL, along with the rest of GW, don't really give a shit about the Orks. They're forever held in the 'generic villain' category, to be pulled up as "yet more cannon-fodder for Chaos", or "plot vessel for showing how many bad dudes some bland marine chapter or character can kill"

Remember at the end of Fallout 3, when you follow Liberty Prime into battle against the covenant?
Remember that rush, that sheer sense of joy, resolution, and inflated bravado as he crushed everything in his path with you and the rest of the Brotherhood swarming behind, picking off the stragglers and isolated pockets of resistance in his wake?

I bet that's what it'd feel like to be an Ork.

That's not even crazy enough, but it's a start. Think that, but with two dozen liberty primes, a thousand times as many troops and more tanks and trucks than you can count. All the while everything and everyone is exploding around you and every ork worth his gubbins is shouting as loudly as possible, killing the nearest enemy in his most favorite way. You think you might have lost your arm in that last explosion back there, but you don't care enough to find out, because you are having the time of your life, happier than you've ever been on a battle high that would make Slannesh greener than even Mork and Gork with envy.

THAT'S what it probably feels like to be an ork and DAMN would that feel good.
