Ork Work and lots of it

I have been attending to my Orks as of late and
everything in this post is newly finished.

My Orks needed a base of sorts so out came the
bits box, plasticard and some filler. I blatantly
borrowed an idea of using a CD case holder as a
starting point from http://www.ifelix.co.uk. I then
added a walkway to another ground based fort.

I added some fun detail with a dead Blood Angel
minus his arms and a foot tied up in wire to
the outside as a sort of Ork welcome mat.

A few Ork glyphs made from plasticard

were stuck on.

An access hatch was added for the Gretchin.

A nice bloody access point was also added at

ground level.

I also painted up some more Orks and Gretchin

and made a free standing Ork Glyph to warn off

anybody in the near by area.

Oh and one last thing I added a Kromlech

cannon nicely covered in rust and slightly

kit bashed.

Also forgot to mention that the walkway/bridge

comes straight off so it makes storage nice

and easy.

More object markers and scenery for 15mm

wargaming.

Both by Battlefront.

Gorkamorka/Space Ork Nobs ?

Found these sitting a the bottom of a box

so added them to the mix. Funny, I never

remembered the orks being so

big and having such cool weapons.

Thanks to Leeman’s sharp eye he has quite correctly

pointed out these are not apparently Gorkamorka

so now I’m thinking old OOP Nobs ?

Somebody has suggested they are Black Reach Orks ?

Orks for the meat grinder

The Ork Waaagh grows and so the need for

more cannon fodder is required. Quick and easy Orks

for a mad dash to death but allowing my Ork Warboss

to sneak up on the flank and do some real bashing.

Needed something to sit next to my panzers

and just remind everybody that Blitzkrieg was not

all lightning warfare. The vast majority of the

German army went to war on foot or was pulled

by a horse. In this case they came back by horse.

It was built from balsa wood, two Napoleonic horses

from Essex miniatures and some wire.

Road tested this rig, the weekend just gone and

found the perfect use for it. After an hour of

play out comes the horse drawn ambulance telling

all players its time for a cup of tea and a break.

Been busy of late and finally finished these guys.

£5 off ebay plus 99p post and packaging and all still

attached to the sprue. Anyway what seemed like an easy

Terminator paint became rather slow and tedious due to

the large amount of tiny detail on these models. Well done

GW on making such high quality kit but its hell to paint.

Anyway hope you like them ?

The basic colour is a Tamiya white base coat with a couple

of Ushabti Bone dry brushes. The red is a build up of Mephiston

Red, Evil Sunz scarlet and Wild rider red. The Green is Caliban

Green, Warpstone and then Moot.
