Wow, orks aren't really my thing, but that's epic. That would be a piece to build an army around.

Holy Moly. Artel please stop. If I didn't already have a Deffkilla Wartrike, this would be an auto-buy for me. Why do you have so many great HQ sculpts compared to GW proper?!?

My milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard and they're like, hurr darry darr.


My suggestion to you is to get married, if you have a good wife you'll be happy, if you have a bad wife you'll become a philosopher.

I think Artel sculpts are great, and I plan to order a bunch one day. However that Ork is just... visual noise. I didn't even notice the grot on the back until I read the description.

There's too much going on there.

I'm somewhat inclined to agree. There is an overabundance of detail on that mini. I don't think it makes it overly busy necessarily or even messy, but there's a LOT to look at.

I don't even know what you might remove off it to clear it up a bit. But maybe it'd look alright once painted up. Help unify all the separate elements of it.

I think (and hope, because I ordered one!) that a lot of the visual 'noise' is because everything is grey--so nothing important stands out.

Now, a bad paint job could make that worse, by confusing it all even further, but I think a good paint job could emphasize the important parts of the model, and 'link up' the structural elements of the vehicle, so that the eye could read it better. If the trike is a mostly darker color, with grey/black tires, and the ork is vivid green, and the gobbo is yellowish green, for example, I think the design elements would stand out more clearly.

I ended up ordering a lot today, because the 15% discount was just too tempting.

I think the idea of having to keep popping wheelies in order to fire the guns in front is the Orkiest thing I've read on the internet today, and it makes perfect sense.

Wow. Didn't expect it to be that big.

That's just an impressive kit. Would look great at the front of a big Speed Freak convoy. Crap. I'm going to end up owning one, aren't I?

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.
