Warlord 'Az-ard is a Deffskull warboss from the Armageddon system who's primary clan colors are <font style='Color:
blue'>Blue and Yellow. His clan is known for turning almost any imperial
technology into a dangerous weapon.
Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka
This is a 'Stock' Ghazghkull model which I have had since the Second War for Armageddon. I painted him for the store and
he was our campaign character model. Since then he has been one of my most used models over the past 10-15
Mad Dok Grotsnik
Because I had gotten about 15 Mad Dok models from the great GW Bitz Shelf collapse, I have a whole unit of 3rd edition
Cyborks based off Mad Dok. (now Dredbash Cybork Slashers or Nob Cyborks) I wanted my Mad Dok to be larger and stand out.
I used an AoBR boss with a Ghaz head and Warboss arm to make him look like a large cyborky monster. The little head on
his ope is the official Dok head.
This old Zogwort is based off a Metal GorkaMorka Nob. I tried to make him as close to the official art as possible,
which included, the chains, the backspikes and his Waaaaghbanner. His squig is a Space Marine IC turned squig. It is
intended to match the majority of my Deffskull army.
This is the GW official Boss Snikrot model. Nothing too fancy. I used him a few times to "Ambush" Mad Dok behind enemy
lines. The model is 'OK' and I got the FW kit Kommandos to go with him. In 6th there isn't much reason to use him but he
gets to sneak around my shelf.
I have only one model in my army I did not paint myself. On The-Waaagh.com, we do a 'Sekrit Santaz' Gift exchange
amongst ork players where we make something orky for someone. One year I received this amazing model fully painted. It
was painted by Stuart@the-waaagh.com. He is awesome and a great addition to the army! Since my Special Characters all
have unique official paint schemes, it is ok he doesn't fully match my BLOO waaagh.
Here is a Stock Kaptin Badrukk with a pretty official paint-scheme. Also with him are the GW special edition Ammo Grots.
(which were designed to match him) I decided to put the Grots on a 40mm and give them magnetic crates which are removed
as 'counters' because Baddruk can use HIS 3 runts or the 3 with the Flash Gitz unit, while Flash Gits may only use the
ones for the unit. So it helps distinguish Badrukks personal ammo runts. I really love this model, but Flash Gitz suck
so they don't see much game-time.
Warlord 'Az-ard (Megaboss)
When the Ghazghkull model was released, it was our first official Mega Armored Warboss model. Before then, We had two
Metal Warbosses, Gorka Morka Nobz and 2nd edition stuff. While I already had a Ghazghkull, I also was able to get 3 more
for dirt cheap when they were released. (bitz by weight! Lol!) This has been my core Warboss for over a decade now. Not
too complicated, just a simple model. I often imagine him sitting on his thrown, in his mega armor in his gargant
watching the battle. Also: Gobbla Attack Squig!
I had a project to turn a Armorcast Battlewagon into a Weirdboy Tower which was designed to have a Weirdboy hanging out
in the top. I had gotten a sad little Metal Warboss who had been converted (looks like a Minotaur arm!!!) so I decided
to try to clean him up. I never cared for the look of the official model, so I had decided to use ball and chain instead
of Grot handlers. I gave him a lightning bolt theme and covered his face which was damaged. (and I have a lot of mask-
wearing Orks in my feral lists) Not my favorite model, but he mainly sits in the tower of a tank and goes "pew-
This was a fantasy 'Orc Raider' model which just really looked cool. It fit in well with my feral orks and would make a
good weirdboy. I decided he would be a 'fire' theme since he had a torch. All I really did was try to 'future up' his
torch and spear and added some chains to him. I don't use Weirdboy's much but he is a fun model.
I have quite a few random Mekboys, though they don't really get used much. This is my mekboy named 'Barry' which is used
to stand next to models in photographs and provide scale in CMs. Lots of Ork people have a barrymek. Mine was an attempt
at Space Marine armor on an ork.
Soon after Assault on Black Reach came out, Ork players were getting multiple boxes. There were loads of terrible
Terminator to MANZ conversions out there simply because there were so many cheap plastic Terminators out there. When we
were having a campaign which would have 500pt 'space battles' I decided I wanted to make some Zero Atmosphere Orks in
space suits, so I studied the greats of the ork conversion world and came up with these guys. I wanted them to look like
a real ork was inside them and not just an Ork head on a terminator suit. They have been the centerpiece of my army for
many an event!
Armageddon Krumpa Korps
When the new Ghazghkull came out, I also painted a unit of MANZ for him which had paint schemes from every clan
represented on Armageddon. Bad moonz, Snakebites, Blood Axe, Deffskull, Evil Sunz, Goff, Black Slayers and Stompa Tribe.
These guys are some of my oldest and most used models, and they still make a showing in games.
I had found a great tutorial for Greenstuff Greatcoats so I thought I would give it a try. This guy was originally made
to be a Kommando nob (and still may be) but his unit of Greatcoat Kommandos ended up finding a new home in a Gift
Exchange. He actually has a Twin brother which I made for a friend. When modeling something, it is easy enough to make
two! Currently, this guy has been my first NOB for any of my troop units.
Flashy Shoota Boyz
One of my last armies I built in 3rd edition was an army using a lot of the units you never used. Flash Gitz were
regular 'BOY' models and could take 4 Big Shootas + 1 for the Nob. So I had gotten a ton of Nob Metal TL shoota gunz
which made great Snazguns and BAM! Flash gitz. When 4th edition rolled over, and invalidated a lot of the old units
(skarboyz, Tankbustaz, Flassgitz) these guys basically became regular old shoota boyz. Because there are 10 of them,
they usually end up in a Trukk with a BS and nob. I really love these guys.
Gorkamorka Shoota Boyz
In 3rd edition, we used to get 16 boyz in a box with sets of choppa/slugga and Shootas. Shootas were terrible in 3rd so
everyone had 90% slugga boyz which meant little baggies of extra shootas were everywhere. I had loads of GorkaMorka orks
from collecting and I decided to try to modify them to have the spare shoota arms. I have to say it wasn't too hard and
the result is pretty decent. Helmeted heads hide the neck join, Shoulderpads hide some of the odd shoulder issues. When
painted and in a unit, they don't stand out at all. I have close to 40 of these and I still use them regularly today.
In 3rd edition, We had an amazing Feral Ork Codex. I had literally 100 of the metal savage ork models which I had turned
into a full Feral Ork army. MADBOYZ were like Slugga boyz who could be doped up by a Pigdok to have STR5. I have two
units of 20 which have now since become regular slugga boyz, and sometimes Kommandos when needed. There is a Woodtusk
unit and a Stonetusk unit (with wood and stone masks)
Epicast Gobsmasha (Boomwagon)
One of my favorite old-school models!!! I collect old epicast/armorcast stuff whenever I can find it. This little brick
of a model is tons of fun and I use him currently as a 'Boomwagon'. This guy made a showing in my NOVA 2011 Army which
had 3 Boomwagons.
Apocalypse & Super Heavies
Other Orky Stuff!!!
These are some orky objective markers which I did for a modeling contest a while back. The WAAAGH banner is designed to
look like the building from the videogame 'Dawn of War'. Then there is the generic ammo dump and then the Feral ork
totem with a little grot guardian. These are just for fun!

Why I Started This Army
I have been collecting 40k orks for almost 20 years now. I really like the Ork army and fluff in the 40k universe. I
made this article to begin sharing photos of my models online.
