Default Snagrod's Wagh?

So does anyone have any advice in terms of what type of Orc clan that Snagrod's Waaagh was during the Rynn World incident? I have just finished my crimson fists for now (with a link to a painting log at the bottom) and am going to go ahead and paint up the orcs that came with the original AoBR boxset. My ambition is to expand my orcs by picking up a battleforce and Battlewagon set. Then I will probably try and get another 20x boyz from the AoBR from ebay or something. So any longtime greentide player have any knowledge concerning Snagrod's army? Thanks in advance.

Until the Loki sector is free or we become extinct on Rynn...the Crimson Fists fight on in his grace's name.

Some links to ongoing painting logs covering space marines, orks, vampire counts and new small Warmachine Cryx project. Not to mention some pics of previously owned High Elves:

Being a large Waaagh! all the clans were probably represented in strength, so unless your going to do Snagrod and his personal troops your safe doing whatever clan you wish.

Cool so I'm free to paint up some Goffs and go on with it, aye? How about any older codexes...I mean do they have a description of Snagrod himself and his personal guard/army? I have also started an orc log in the projects, I'll add a link to my signature. Any other advice in terms of next miniatures to acquire would be cool too. Thanks again.

Personally I'd like to know this too. I do short story writing and I try to present what I have to Black Library in hopes they'll pick me up. Part of doing this is both because I love the fandom and I want to be as close to the lore as possible. I get that the WAAAGH! was a mix of any clans that joined him, but what of of Snagrod himself? Any lore that can point us in the right direction? I've looked in a lot of different places and found nothing so I am assuming they want us to just slap a random clan on him and feel its right...... Either way I suppose...

Well Snagrod's waagh included klans representing all the different ork factions. Now it doesn't say what faction Snagrod belonged too but my guess is he was most likely a Blood Axe because he used tactical savvy by utilising Imperial tactics. So I would go with Blood axe for him and his body gaurd.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

Awesome thanks! I have linked a lot of info about each of the Ork clans and their motifs. How they function and what not. This suggestion will be utilized properly thank you! :D
