Came across a metal Ork Nob, painted very badly,in
one of a large number of dust covered boxes I have.
He originally came with a mace and axe and I
suspected him to be more Warhammer fantasy than 40k,
but on checking he appears in Orks Collectors Guide
as part of the classic range. Saying that I still suspect
he has a very close twin look a like in the fantasy range ?

Anyway removed the axe and mace(replaced with shoota in each
hand),added a boss pole made from spare parts and plasticard,
added additional armour(back plate and jaw plate) and put
him on a jazzed on base.

Now he looks like an Ork moving up in the world of
Ork hierarchy until somebody bigger rips of his arms
and hangs them on their own boss pole.

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.

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.

I had to test the new Cadians out and what better

way than a last stand action at a lonely outpost

against an Ork Waaagh.

In the end amazingly they held off 2 waves of Orks.

Unfortunately the 3rd sadistic wave I sent at them

finished them off.

Cadian honour was upheld, even if the Orks

ripped their arms off.

Ork Warboss 2nd time around…..waaaagh

A friend recently asked me to paint his Ork Warboss because he hated painting

and wanted it to be purple !

Not my favourite colour either but what the hell I`m game for anything.

Its not my cup of tea and I`m not big on painting orks,

but here he is.

I put him next to an old warboss I painted a year ago in yellow.

I think I prefer the yellow ?
