I'd imagine big meks would have a big beard for stroking. Warbosses would have a goatee because they're evil. Hmm Burnaz have a large moustache. Lootas have sideburnz. Normal boyz don't have any.

I seem to recall a 2nd edition Ork with a terrible looking blue beard, but maybe I'm crazy-- leastways, now? No. But I do think it has been done before!

All Ork hair, facial or otherwise, is the result of a hair-squig. Orks themselves are incapable of growing hair.

Quite right. All Orks are naturally bald. Thus, for 'aesthetic' reasons they adopt 'hair-squigs'. These are basically a tiny fang-laded mouth-part with long hairs protruding from its rear. The Ork simply attaches the mouth-part to whatever area of its body it wants hair (usually in the form of a top-knot). The hair-squig feeds parasitically from the Ork, but he gets a fancy hair-do. Also, some Orks (particularly freebooters) have adopted beards, but the standard Orky top-knot is the most common.

GW has made ork models with beards (from hair squigs). One example is Zodgrod Wortsnagga, Renegade Runtmaster from 2nd edition.

Hair squigs? Hopefully this is just 2nd edition nonsense because that sounds just aweful.

No, hair squigs are still canon, and beloved of many ork players.

If Tyranids can have gun squigs, orks can have hair squigs.

It's no more daft than the Painboyz' Syringe Squigs - which come in three sizes - large, 'uge and 'urty. :)

Not forgetting the great hilarity orks get from oomies who don't have hair squigs and don't have wierd and wacky colours for their hair.

Yes, because we all know Orks couldn't possibly have nonsense fluff. ;)

Runtherds are the guys who manage the squig-eugenics-whotsits, so he has the best around, obviously :)

Hmmm, I think I may have to do my ninja grotz with squig eyebrows like Pai Mei.

Grotz with beards=win. Especially when they're trained to strangle you with it.

Or Kommandoz wearing green spandex, flak jackets, bowl cuts and eyebrows like Maito Gai. Now that would be a sight.

DYNAMIC ENTRY!

I LOVE hairsquigs! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE 'EM!

Nonsense? You do know that you're talking about SPACE orks, right? Just listen to the name... SPACE orks... nonsense is their stock and trade.

I think Orks with beards are badass. Just look at Thrall from WC3.

Of course, the hammer doesn't hurt that impression either...

You now make me want to do a conversion for a Runtherd's Grot assistant who's fallen into the hair-squig pen and now looks like Cousin It.

both of these are from some ebay auctions I found. Both are 2nd ed Ork Runtherdz.

The orks have bred squigs for everything. oil squigs, hair squigs, musical squigs...
