Love the blood splatter on the roller, just trying to work out if they are evil sunz, badmoonz, goffs or death skulls or is a mix of all of them?

I like the army, however, I think the yellow is a bit clean on alot of the models. Favorite piece has to be the Battlewagon; it looks really beefy.

P.S. I think McDonalds when I see these Orks.

Nice wheels on the wagon! And I for one like the brilliant yellow- these 'ere are some right rich toofy gitz, they can afford new paint.

Looks fantastic! So angry I can't be at Adepticon this year...

My favorite bit though is the pinstriping on the Warboss' bike, such a small detail, but it adds tremendously to the model. Beautiful stuff!

The paint scheme reminds of older editions of the orks for some reason.

They're not the best pictures. I took them in the hour or so between when I finished painting, and when I left for Adepticon.

That said, I won the Best Appearance award out of 245 participants. The pictures may not show it well, but most of the models are conversions in some way, including all of the bikes, of which none are duplicated at all. Every rider is also unique, with heads and parts from every kit in the ork range. Nearly every model has some sort of tattoo, warpaint, or other freehand work done.

The colours are bright - but they're Bad Moons. It's meant to really pop, and catch eyes in what is often a poorly lit tournament hall - although this year, the lighting in the main hall was not bad at all.

I spent eight hours on just the yellow panels of the battlewagon in order to make sure that they weren't patchy or blotchy. I started it on Friday, after realizing that the wagons I had before didn't work with the new style I was using on my new models. The wheels came off a toy truck, and the farings/wheel guards are plasticard - and a bit of cut up fish-food container (the rounded front fenders). There's a lot of stuff you can't see on those pics either, the bed has a lot of neat stuff going on too.

Now that the con is over, I'm going to try and take some better pictures of the individual models. I'll add them to this thread as I get that done. There might be some on CoolMiniOrNot's coverage too, as they took some.

Amazing army Redbeard, the painting is really crisp and clean and the quality really stands out. I love the character and personality of the army too.

Personally, and I hope you don't take this the wrong way, I find the Bright Colours and blood-splatters etc. actually create an anti-grimdark look, which IMHO suits the Orks and Badmoons in particular.

Great army Red, with a well deserved win. Congrats.

"As I recall, your face was tortured. Imagine that - the Master of the Wolves, his ferocity twisted into grief. And yet you still carried out your duty. You always did what was asked of you. So loyal. So tenacious. Truly you were the attack dog of the Emperor. You took no pleasure in what you did. I knew that then, and I know it now. But all things change, my brother. I'm not the same as I was, and you're... well, let us not mention where you are now."

Fantastic! I especially like the old Trukk with the fuel cans piled in it! Inspired! I've got to point out the "wheelie" bike too--that is also totally bad-Ork!

Way to go; thanks for the link from your fortress-construction blog. Hope I don't "lose your respect" by posting here as the pop-up warned me, but I am figuring you want people to check this out due to the link.

Great looking army. I like the conversions on the bikers and the rokkit buggy on the left. They are all very flavorful and well executed.

Like the look of these a lot! Especially the bikers, some time and effort has gone into them, and it's certainly paid off. My one critique is that they look a little too clean for me, not enough battle damage, chips and such, or mud. But great work overall.
