From DavidB - Waaaargh!!!!!!! pt 3 (470 points)

Apologies in advance as this is an epic post on work I've completed in the past couple weeks.



I completed the mob of Evil Sunz and the Nobz Mob for these speed freaks. Since Evil Sunz believe "da red uns go fasta" they like red, yellow, and have most of the Mekaniac ( mechanics who are maniac) they are a clan that loves to drive fast and hot rod the vehicles.

The Boyz mob of 10 are all rogue trader plastic and metal. The metal models had evil Sunz medals and buckles

A power claw nob leads two mekaniaks another boss and a pain boy( medics who like to experiment especially  in brain surgery) 

The old Nobz bike finally done

I have no more bases, but the nob will be pinned and get a base for foot missions.

Of course there is more than one machine for this bunch


This venerable machine was actually still in a gesso undercoat. I never painted it as both machine and orcs are freakishly small even in comparison to the rogue trader orcs, but it is now a cart ready for battle

A second generation biker. This one will not remain in deployment zone shooting. Red is the color for racing!

A second generation scorcher with a grot assistant. I liked the 1st version with an ork peering out of the turret, but it was tiny like the buggy. I like this one and the heavy look.

(Forgot a close up of the two trax, one was painted in the 80s while the large one is still drying)
I plopped in the battle wagon (painted many years ago) as it is very old and part of the Gorkas from Gorkamorka. A fun necromunda-type game with orks and vehicles. It had some problems, but was still fun.

Gorkas worship Gork who is cunningly brutal while Morkas worship Mork who is brutally cunning.
Gorkas being close to Goff got the Goff color scheme of black and red.

They were the only models primed black in this bunch too. My wife bought me all the Gorkamorka stuff our first Christmas together and now it is half painted. ( diggas, muties, and gobbo gangs yet to do)

This truck has a wrecking ball multi crossbow,  shoota, and ram

My favorite ork biker with lots of weapons

A rokkit buggy. I like the gunner sculpt. He is peering down a rocket tube for aiming

Another truck with extra armor, spotlight and reinforced ram.

Besides taking forever to buy vehicles for your gang, the ork models had funky bases to better fit in the trucks. Those bases don't help the models to stand at all. The Gorka nob pictured is the size of the current warriors, so the game's orks were weedy. Some hated these smaller orcs. I like them because they bridge the size from rogue trader to the current monster orcs.

These are the Morkas  ( purple trukk and orcs inside were also painted long ago)

I was going to make the Morkas Bad Moons, but decided it would be more flavorful to be Bad Moon funded Blood Axe boyz.

The boss Bad Moon with a bad moon painted in the 90's
The new custom trukk in Blood axe military colors next to the trukk painted in the 90s

Any model can fire the vehicle mounted guns, but this Morka is slowly squeezing off a round from his own shoota.

A harpoon Trax with gunner

This trukk was a conversion from campaign now painted. It and the driver ( toothless Mcgee) may not even show due to injuries. They are fast and Morkas dive from this fast mover.

They also use the boarding ramp from the spear truck.

This is the newest trukk and I picked it up cheap assembled and primed white from adepticon last year. It was a pain to paint and it was hard to hit all the white!

I painted it purple for an improved Bad Moon trukk as all the teeth seemed to be a good relation to how fast Bad Moons grow teef. Teef is curency for orks and Bad Moons are very wealthy.

I love the detail on it. And I had fun layering the easy to reach parts and adding fun damage and scratches and spills

Too many hobnailed, steel toe boots stomping up and down the ramps!


They marked up the deck too!
Did I say the detail is nice? 15 bucks for a used model.

I had to paint everywhere because of the white...And Clint will appreciate the extra step!

The boarding ramp from the Big Truck makes it an even better Gorkamorka ride!

What I painted minus the mini wartrax, battle wagon, small trukk, Gorka boss and a few Bad Moon Morka boyz.
So this horde is
35 ork infantry- 175 points
3 bikes with 4 orks- 35 points
4 wartrax with 6 orks and one grot- 90 points
6 buggies with 11 orks-145 points
1 big purple truck and 2 orks- 25 points
470 points with more to come.


By Jove, it's a bona fide, genuine, honest to goodness, straight up BROMLEY BOMB!!!!!!  Clear the area!  Women and children first!

Welcome to Thursday David!  When I saw your name on my list of cats to be herded I was hoping to see some old school GW goodness...... but I couldn't have expected this points explosion!

And what a subject - classic orks... This, my good man, is right in my wheelhouse and I have no idea where to start!  I lost track of the number of generations of Orks in this lot.  Those rogue trader chaps at the top are the business, with the Nob being carried on the back of the bike making me laugh.  That tiny first gen warbuggy is a blast from the past as I remember staring at one all made up in a glass case in my local games emporium back in the day when I didn't have enough money to buy it... That new pinky-purple truck is absolutely amazing - it's the ride that's been most "pimped" out of a variety of pimped out rides the like of which is rarely seen.

The sheer scale of fitting so many seemingly disparate parts together is only attempted by the bravest/craziest of Ork warbosses and you absolutely qualify my friend!

I'm going to go crazy and award you another 15 points on top of the 470 because this is an absolutely lunatic submission, pulled off with such aplomb...... and kickin' it Old Skool is the shizzle.

  3. Damn that's awesome! I really like that pink truck, it looks great, and pink works surprisingly well. Bravo!

    1. Thank you, Iannick! It may be the photo that trips it or the purple over white or even the pink used for highlights. I think it's probably more a mauve or fusha...with Orks would that be fuza? ;)

    1. Thank you! I suspect lack of forces kept them off the painting desk followed by incoherent scaling. The mixture now just seems to enhance the shambling massed horde.

  7. I do love a good ork horde! These are brilliant, David, a real treat. They must look awesome on the tabletop!

    1. Thanks, Evan! They look mighty fine on my workbench so far. I hope to give some proper boot-letha to some chaos and Tyranid forces soon. Some of my chaos army friends say Orks are broken. Orks don't need "spechul roolz"! ;)

  11. That's a crazy amount of orc and trukk [sic] goodness (or badness?) I have a question - what green do you use for that skin?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks! I use dark green ( forest, dark angel green) then I use a medium green( true green, knarloc green) and highlight with a yellow green ( goblin green, moss green) some times I'll run with some olive tones in any stage or change up the base color with knarloc or Russian green to vary. I vary the washes also. I usually use a green wash, but my thrakka green is depleted now. I've used purple, black and various brown washes in replacement and they all make unique skin tones. The dethroned skullz coming soon were done in a purple wash which worked very well to my eye. ;)

  12. Wowzers! What an amazing horde, well done Dave! Lots of Go-Faster-Red with a touch of Look-at-me-Explode-Purple. What wonderful stuff!

    1. Thank you, Curt! I'm sure that purple truck won't last past turn two! The keen eyed may not lots of red rims and gun barrels. That would be orky accelerators to spin faster and shoot faster! ;)

    1. Thanks, Samuli! I'm pretty chuffed I got them done! Even the tiny red cart, I'm thinking of it as a go-kart crewed by orc "yoofs". ;)

  15. That's absolutely impressive! Qality AND Quantity... nothing that I would associate with orcs, but you've definitely proven me wrong with this submission.

    1. Thanks! They probably would've been done faster if I made them a unified clan, but what fun is that? I myself like the ramshackle horde look of them bunched together.

  16. Thank you very much, Jamie! I'm pretty happy I got them done, some have been primed for for over 20 years! These fellows have only been used as tin Boyz in gorkamorka and 5th edition 40k. It'll be nice to set em loose in their war colors! ;)

  18. So much Red and Green. Classic! Great stuff on this major bomb run. Cheers
