If the mushroom could be found again to give rise to the snotlings, then yes ;)

Yes and No. There are maybe huge ork empires in the unexplored galaxies, that dwarf even the imperium. Higly unlikely but orks are everywhere. Maybe they even annihilate entire systems of life without the imperium even knowing. Warlord of that power could certainly amass a shitload of orks.

Whilst your point is relevant and correct - there could be huge Greenskin empires in the void unencountered by the Imperium - I would suggest that any of them being larger than the Imperium is as good as impossible, not only due to the usual issues of centralised rule amongst the Greenskins, but also due to their lack of stable communication and warp travel technology.

No. They way they are set up makes it impossible for them to ever be more than a valid threat, not an intergalactic empire. For them to have a stable Empire they would need order and laws, which if you know anything about them seems unlikely. They want to be a mass murdering horde, not a boring administratum of an empire.

I say no. That would be to suggest that the orks actually organize better than the Emperor and the Imperium ever could. There is nothing to prove the Imperium could ever unite. The Heresy I argue is the reality humanity was trying to escape all those years. Another discussion of course.

But if they couldn't... how could the Orks even dream of a united empire?
