Greg - I completely feel you on your debate between keeping to your orcs or jumping into WoC; I've had the same problem since I 'completed' my DoC tourney list. I modeled an entire Skaven list and got into base coating some of the rank and file before I realized a horde army was just not friendly towards my style of painting and pace. Then I decided I needed an elite list, so started working on an idea for a dark elf list only to get hooked on the new VC and jumped ship to that. Ironically, a horde army again.
I think from my perspective the killer is the quality of the new kits and models - they're like crack the way they tempt. Honestly, from the sound of the excitement you've got on WoC I'd say go for it and see if you can use that motivation to drive home a full list; but try to make sure you've got a solid vision for the theme before you jump in. I've found if I meander into a new project, it does tend to grow in an interesting, organic way but it feels more like less and project and more happenstance. I'm definitely excited to see what you come up with to do with Chaos - there's so much room for conversion and creativity with that list, you should definitely go to town!
Also Jen: Can't believe the guy didn't apologize for breaking your fig. I mean yeah, accidents happen but that's just common decency. I've had my stuff break in tourney many times, and often it's my own fault, but if I was responsible for damaging someone else's work I'd be torn up about it. That said, there are players out there who don't give a fig about the modeling part of the hobby and don't treat their own stuff with any care, so I guess that translates - they don't get the investment the figs can be for the more serious modelers. :(
