I am going to be starting a new skaven army and was thinking of painting the cloth orange. I was wonering if there was an existing clan that wore orange robes or have i got some scope to come up with my own?

Probably.

The thing you have to remember with the Skaven is that clans dont have a "trademark" on colours (if they did, it would be like saying that every Skaven in a green vest belonged to Clan Pestilens :D ). And even amongst clans who are predominantly associated with a particular colour, there is still a wide variety of shades and patterns in the colours they wear.

Paint your Skaven however you wish. No one can call you out on "belonging to an existing clan", because no one clan can claim a monopoly on a colour or pattern.

And don't forget, you can always just create your own clan for your warlord, then you can pick whatever colors you want.

Uniforms and Heraldry skaven is a good start, full of good colour schemes, but none are really orange, so you can make up your own clan easy

Just a point to note; I'd make it a dark, rusty, dirty orange. Sounds like you have the basis for a cool new warlord clan. You can pick out your specialist clan "allies" in different colours, too (Eshin = black, Pestilens = green etc).

Nice.

The closest one really is Clan Skurvy it's more yellow than orange. Like others have said, just have fun and paint whatever you like :)
