Hello everyone. I am finally starting a blog primarily for my Orks here on Dakka. I started my Ork army in the beginning of 6th edition in anticipation of the (hopefully) upcoming codex. The goal is to have a fully painted core of an Ork army before they get a 6th edition codex, and so far the progress is slow, but steady.

Here are two pictures of units I painted before I started this blog so you can get an idea of my painting style. As you can see, I like my Orks dirty and gritty, with plenty of battle damage and weathering:





I also like tanks a lot, so I have a hard time pulling myself together to paint the core of my infantry, but I already have something like 6 vehicles completely painted. Any advice on getting motivation for painting infantry? I love Orks, but there are just so many of them.

Now to the first blog update:

So I purchased a totally busted up Rhino from eBay for a few pounds. It's the very oldest Rhino model out there, but I had no qualms about "looting" it because it was assembled so poorly and completely damaged in every sort of way:


I wanted to make a looted wagon for my Orks, as it is every Ork player's rite of passage.


And now the boomgun in the form of a chopped down Earthshaker gun:


It's made from an old Rhino, a dozer blade from a Chimera, the gun from a Bassilisk, some armour plates, bits from the Trukk kit, and the gunner from the Battlewagon kit, with the head from the Ork Dakkajet.



I intend to paint it in the same style as my Trukk and Wartrakk in the first picture. I can post how I do it if anyone is interested, but I mainly follow the advice from this blog: http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2011/03/40k-ork-battlewagon-painting-tutorial.html

I painted one of my Battlewagons, but I forgot to take pictures of it. I will do that later today if I remember it. I think it turned out pretty well though.

I just finished painting up the AoBR Warboss and a SAG Big Mek, I think they turned out very well, but the Big Mek took a lot of time to paint:


Next up: The Ork Warboss on Warbike from FW. The right bag of bits is a preview of what is coming. I will try to post more WiP pictures this time.

Subbed, more Greenskins always good.

Regarding Battlewagons; you know that an Imperial Basilisk's gun fits perfectly in the back of a Battlewagon?

Love your painting style and the Earthshaker cannon in the too small looted Rhino is just epic!

Thanks a lot for the feedback, I really appreciate it.
I have been thinking about getting a supa kannon for my BW at some point, but I have decided to wait for a new codex before I purchase too much from FW.

I got the rest of my Ork vehicles home yesterday, so perhaps I'll take some pictures tonight. My Orks have been put a bit on the back burner because I have begun focusing more on Flames of War lately. I added some extra bits to the looted wagon, I plan to paint it sometime in the not too far future.
