So, I recently hit a bump in the road. I love playing, modeling and painting my 40k, but I have problem (actually several, but not all of those will be mentioned) the most major of these is the fact that I do not like painting in hordes. Unfortunately, "horde" and "ork" are nearly synonymous and because I play orks... I'm not really enjoying painting all dem' boyz. Thus, I have decided in order to keep myself painting I will paint models instead of armies. (and hopefully in the future I'll have an army )
So without further ado, my Warboss-Madstrag da' Gob Krumpa'

So here we have the Warboss, still working on painting, so don't be too cruel on your comments about the painting.



His little 'hanger on'

Modified chainsword gun. I really like how the blood effect turned out. Got the idea from @Awesomesauce http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/401651.page

Power Klaw

and the dead Kroot, (more on him later)




C&C are welcome!

I'm not sure yet. I had been painting my armies Goff, but that got really repetitive so I decided to spice things up a little bit with some Evil Suns. I'm also experimenting with the skin shade, all of my previous orks have been a lot darker, and more grimy so I tried to make this one much lighter.

Haha, and I had no idea what to do with the kroot, so I made him red

(which in hindsight, wasn't the best idea, cause he got so freaking bloody )

Ok, so today I am uploading a older photo, but still in the lines of figures and not armies. I really like the idea of the Kommando (even if they suck in the game) How an ork can sneak through enemy lines and actually suprise something is beyond me, but the idea of it happening is pretty funny. However, as with almost all (almost?? nah ALL ) GW stuff being so expensive actually buying the models for kommandos is ridiclous, and thus, mine was born.

Sorry, not very good pictures of him... And I still havent based him yet either, but this is WIP, so hey, no big deal right?

And these are just some WIP photos of whats to come (cause I need to keep myself motivated some how right?)

So, for a bit of background information on the looted equipment. Before my brothers and I first started playing 40k a few years back we used to (and still do) play a game called 'Heroscape'. I don't know if any of you are familiar with the game, but just for times sake we'll call it a simplified version of 40k. We always used to build our armies with themes, I played the 'evil' general Utgar; which was primarily evil. Anyways, the point is that this game did not force you to theme you armies, it's just something that we did because we really like fluff. And so when we took up 40k we still tried to keep with fluff in our modeling, thus all of my looted Tau equipment is painted in the color scheme that my brother uses for his Tau, black and grey. Hopefully soon I'll get some pictures of my brothers Tau, so that you can see what they look like, but at the moment I have no pictures of them

We recently got a few other kids into 40k (as I mentioned in my other P&M blog) so hopefully my Ork equipment will soon encompass looted Chaos and Necron stuffs.

So, summer is over, which means that I can get back to work on some orks Granted, summer is usually the time that most people (especially people still in school) find to work on their particular hobbies, however this is not the case for me. I work/travel all summer, and so I never really have time to paint/model on my orks. BUT recently I have had some free time to work, so I wanted to show you guys what I've been working on. As a gaming group we are great fans of Necromunda, but the models are too expensive for us to hope and collect the normal figures, thus, we make do with what we have. Now, orks are very rag tag, so making them into gangs seems to make sense to me. So that's what I've been doing.

I think that you'll all remember this guy, he's (probably) going to be one of the gang bosses. Equipped with a Boltgun, melta bombs, and a sword. I had some trouble making it look like a power sword, so if you guys have suggestions, I'm all ears.





Here's another boss, equipped with a shot gun, and chainsword.





And here's the final gang leader, equipped with a plasma pistol and chainsword. I tried to make it look like he was whipping out his chainsword from behind his back, and I was pretty happy with how the model turned out overall . This was my first ever attempt to paint a Deffskull ork, so let me know what you think I did well, and what I could work on.





As you can see each gang is represented by a different color scheme, (Evil suns, Goff, and Deffskulls) This way they are clearly identifiable. And it will help me to experiment with different color schemes to add to my ork army, giving my Waagh a more realistic look as it will incorperate all of the different factions among the orks. Hope you enjoy!

Continuing with the deff skull look.

Which skin tone do you like better? \

(this is a side by side for reference)


This one had a wash with agrax earth after I highlighted it. I've always favored the "dirty" look more than a really clean and bright one. But I can't decide what to choose here (the photo quality isn't the best either, sorry about that)





No wash...





Also, do you like the color of the blue that I'm using? Or is it too light?

C&C are welcome!
