large orcs with darker than usual skin and a stronger than usual dislike of the light, according to Tolkien. When I was a kid, I always used to draw the orcs as green and the uruks as black, but since Peter Jackson made them all brown, you can't tell which ones are orcs and which ones are uruks.
Which ones are uruks? I think that one over there might be. Oh hang on, that's a troll, isn't it? Damn it, you can't tell which are which!
