WAAGHH!… Well, some of it anyway.

I finally took some proper photos of my finished Orks and added them to their own Orks gallery in the projects section. I still have 1 Looted Wagon, 1 War Wagon (actually a Forgeworld battlefortress), 9 Nobz, 1 Pain Boy, 1 MekBoy and 20 Boyz left to paint before the army is finished. It feels like a long way to go but I’m actually more than half way there!

I started this Orks army mainly because no one else in my group has them. When the Assault on Black Reach 40k start boxed set was released it was a good opportunity to get a bunch of ork models for a good price and I started with two boxes worth. While some models have had a tad more attention than others, the majority of the army is being painted primarily with a tabletop view in mind, meaning I want them to look good while playing but I’m not concerned with how they appear one close inspection.

Orks!

The project that I’ve been focusing on is to paint my 40k ork army. I’ve got all of the figs assembled and about half of them painted. Today I was putting down a wash on 20 model squad of boyz including one nob. I haven’t gotten around to photographing any of the finished orks yet but I took a couple snaps of today’s work. This particular army came about primarily because none of our regular group has an ork army and we had various models floating around from the Assault on Black Reach boxed set and other older acquisitions. As such the primary goal is to get the army finished and playable without worrying too much about how good they look. I did try to make some dynamic poses and do some characterful conversion work but for painting I just want them to look good on the table.
The two close shots of the boy with the big shoota is from a previously completed unit. You’ll notice what I mean about paint job quality; it looks sort of messy so close up but at table top distance it looks quit nice! 😀
