Welcome to my attempt at another, better ork army. My previous one was a deathskull army, but weren't painted that good. So, instead of deciding to repaint them all, I just went for a new start, this time with Bad Moon orks.

I got a first 800 pts list for me to try and achieve.

Green: painted
blue: assembled, or not fully painted
red: need to get

HQ
Warboss 70pts
Big choppa
Eavy armor

Big Mek 85pts
Kustom force field

Troops
20 ork boys 160 pts
Nob
bosspole
powerklaw

20 ork boyz 160 pts
nob
Bosspole
Powerklaw

20 ork boyz 160pts
nob
Bosspole
Powerklaw

Heavy Support
3 Killa Kanz 165pts
3 Kustom Mega Blasta

So far, I have one mob assembled, 3 of them painted. The mek is under construction as well as the Killa Kanz. I still have to buy the rest, but I thought to already post what I got now.

The test model was actually an unpainted stormboy lying around. I have three more of them unpainted, but I can't seem to find the fifth I just painted the stormboy for funs. After that, I had the Idea of building myself a bad moon army.

C&C welcome, as I'll probably need a lot of motivation to paint all these models .

I really like this guys how you paint the ork skin?

Plus it's fairly credible that a GW marketing campaign for their biggest release would fit on one side of A4 - Flashman

Those orks are looking pretty good, Scrazz! Better than the Guardsmen, if I may say. Then again, I'm not sure.. maybe give us a comparison pic?

Keep 'em coming! I want to see da boss!

Thanks guys! The skin was basecoated black, then I applied a mix of Camo Green with Catachan green. Then rough highlighting with a mix of Catachan green with even more Camo green. Then the fine detailing was done with a mix of Catachan green, Camo green and Skull White.

I assembled the first Killa Kan, but I have to hurry, I need to finish the two others before going to the store to play some games. The Killa Kans box doesn't come with Kustom Mega Blastas, so I'm just going to give them whatever weapon that I fancy, but count it as KFF in game.

@Dark, yeah maybe a comparision shot is in order tomorrow. I can't seem to find the painted Furians anywhere.

Nice looking Waaagh so far.

Don't forget to paint those barrels black... in the middle at least. Or you could drill 'em out, if you have a drill.

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your Stormboyz.

800 pts is what I am bringing. I have to carry more than 60 orks to the shop now. And remember that last game I brought 2000 pts of orks to the sop? I had to repair half of the models. I'm not risking that again. Sorry, but 800 pts is gonna be it.

@Moonshine: thanks, I'll look into it sometime.

@AWB: thanks!

Small games are more tactical, usually less boring and more successful than anything over 1750pts.

yeah, that's the main reason I like small games.

So, as promised, pictures of the two other kanz.

I don't agree with that, but I am not going in that further.

Don't get me wrong, larger games are more fun, but they take so much more preparation and planning beforehand to get it right, and especially at a GW, it isn't worth bothering.

Now, back on topic, can't wait to see those Kans painted Scrazz!

Cool models. That stormboy looks a bit like a parody on Commander Shadowsun.

"We train young men to drop fire on people, but their commanders won't allow them to write "feth" on their airplanes because it's obscene!" (Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now)

And you know what's funny? "feth" is actually censored on a forum about a dystopia where the nice guys are the ones who kill only millions of innocents, not billions.

Thanks

Well, sometimes I can enjoy a large game, but the small ones will forever be my favorite.

@skylifter: Thanks man! Shadowsun parody, it never came to my mind, but now you mentioned it, It is.

So I finished the Big mek. Just had to minor touch ups, but I have been stalling it for a few days. I like the way the KFF turned out. It's a scratch built one, as I don't like the metal one produced by GW. I still have the parts left though. So what do you think? Did I pulled off this conversion good, or bad?

I'd better get back painting orks! First up, I want a complete boyz mob painted, then I'll start on the Kan.

right, so this thread has lost some interest, but I want you to know that I am still working on the orks. I bought a warboss earlier, and just assembled him. I'm also batc painting that mob of orks I started on. Expect pictures in the weekend.

But guys, I need some help. Any ideas on how I could expand the list to 1000 pts? I am open to any advice you can give me.

I've been dissappointed using Snikrot and Kommandos to bring my force up to 750pts and later 1250pts - you want to avoid having a significant portion of your force reliant on reserve rolls. That and I find they only take care of one thing before dying. Now if I could guarantee them appearing Turn 2, or no later than the rest of the boyz hitting my opponents lines...

Have you considered Buzzsaw Deffkoptas or Lootas?

Speaking of SNikrot and Kommandos.. if you really want to abuse the rules then you can use the 'Ambush!' special rule while Ghazzy is attached to the unit.

@Damien: Thanks!

@Boyz "R" Us: Thanks! For the rust, first apply a blazing orange coat over a black basecoat, then drybrush chainmail, and then add a devlan mud wash. Or have I said this before?

@Arakasi: yeah I played some kommandos, but not with snikrot, though. IMO they aren't that good in small games, you need to take them in big units together with snikrot. I don't know if I can squeeze an upgraded full komando squad qith snikrit in just 200 pts. And then again, chances are I will be fighting a 1000pts force with only 800 pts half of the game.

I have considered Buzzsaw deathkoptas though.

Epic Win

@Darko: yes, there may be a theme song attached to these gitz.

Now, back on the 1000 pts case. I have considered adding a few Ard boyz in there. Maybe a only twelve boyz with a nob, I need the rest of the points elsewhere. So, what are your opinions on Ard Boyz? To take, or not to take out for a WAAAAGH! ?

Updates will be online this evening or else tommorow.

so, here's the awaited update. The mob still isn't finished, but I'll churn my way through them. And then to think I need to paint 40 more, just for 800 pts

Anyways... on to the pictures.

The only improvement I can suggest is drill out your gun barrels. Other than that.. looking good, Scrazz.
