You'd definitely be going against the grain by painting your orcs white, but no one's stopping you! :)

On the other hand, if you're worried that chicks won't dig you because you didn't paint your O&Gs green, you could always just paint 'em green and then paint great chunks of 'white warpaint' on them!

go ahead and paint their skin white, but still use a thraka green wash for shading. it'll make them look very, very pale green.

as far as your list goes....

general - no point for him to wear any armor if he has the amulet of protectyness on. no armor save or ward save that he has will ever count with that amulet on. only the armor and ward save of the attacker. by extension, one could argue that the boar is 24 wasted points too, since it's only for 1 ws3 s3/5 attack (no armor save benefit from boar either with amulet on)

shaman - if you are going to use him just for mdef, why not find 25 extra points for the staff of sneaky stealing? -1 enemy PD and +1 DD every turn is better than 1 certain dispel imo

trolls - imo you should change your trolls from 2x3 trolls to 1x4 river trolls

boar boyz - savage orc boar boyz are better, especially since you already have fast cav and snotlings to use for screening
