So decided to start some Orks, slight warning I take a while to do anything.

This is my starting point-



1 box of Ork boyz, 1 box of Savage Orcs and one box of Savage Ork boar boyz. (incase anyone cries foul I also picked up a good value eBay auction of tons of 40k ork plastic bits.)

I'm in a couple of hours and this is my progress -









As you can see I'm mixing 40k Boyz and Savage Ork bits, also going for a few subtle bionics.

Close up -



Going for the less is more approach!

Next step is green stuff.

Thanks.

Done a little more work, I have decided to make 5 boyz at a time to work through the mountains of bits I seem to have accumulated.

Here is a little update of where I am at, these are at stage 1 I'd say, next step is a lot of green stuff work.



thanks.

Looking sweet, dude.

Was considering getting the Savage orc set myself for the extremely evil looking heads.

Thanks! The Savage Orc set is really nice, only problem I am finding is, lovely models that they are, the body and legs, and in some cases arm(s) is one part. This limits options unless you don't mind taking a knife to them.... which luckily I do not

Cheers Squidbot.

Been working on a couple of boyz, which are affectionately named Chops and Rooster.



Modelling putty work on chops - Beard, flying jacket, Knee padded pants and a scar for his bionic eye.







I decided Rooster didn't need to much work, made an Ammo box for his shooter, and added a Shoulder pad and drilled out another bird skull and stuck it on.



I'm calling these two done, three more and I start some painting.

cheers.

Great work on these Orks. You're a brave, brave man wanting to do this much work on such a horde-army!

I've been painting, just about finished 'chops'













Sorry for loads of pictures, but he is a test model and wanted to get some documentation down.

I haven't painted Orks (or anything really) in a while so used him as practice.

Cheers.

Nice paint job! Your orks seem to have very good posture. The sculpting work is great, I really like the bearded boy. As a fellow ork builder I know you will be at this for a VERY long time. Hope you stick with it, your stuff looks great.

I like the Boy with the bionic left side!

Only thing I would suggest is to add a couple more rods in. You mention you are aiming for the less is more approach, but I can't help think if the Ork doesn't have at least two main "supports" in each half of the arm, it would just become loose and flop around!

Still, with a little work those Savage Orcs would make a great basis for some loopy Madboyz.

I had a little more time to throw some paint about, I have just about finished Rooster, his base still needs work. Thanks for the comments guys, I will be working some more on the 3 I haven't started painting yet, not totally sold on them yet. Was thinking about making 5 more, that's a full unit! wow dizzy, dizzy heights no less, but I digress -

Pictures!







Cheers!

Thanks for the comments guys.

I've been painting the Ork with his breathing apparatus, I thought he would be fairly simple but turned out quite the opposite - I tend to spend more time painting faces, with very little to work with I struggled to get this guy finished. Base needs doing but results below -







And a group shot of work so far... why not, fear my 21 points!



cheers.

Thanks for the comments people.

Updates!

Finished painting the first 5 boyz:-











Looks like the boyz have scraped together some teeth and hired themselves a big shooter, reinforcements :-







Also another Boy has joined the mob, he still needs green stuff:-



Cheers for looking.

WOW You manage to get so much character out of the models that I think are pretty easy to lose character in since you need lots. Great job!
