Alas, after a total of three months of painting all da greenskins I can muster for this collection, today marks the end of this collection. Whilst it’s half of the traditional six month challenge, I took on the task of getting at least one unit done per month (first month was the hardest challenge).
This project at first was a challenge to see if I can build a patrol formation in three months, using a colour scheme that I’ve never used before that would prove challenging. However, back in May, my long time friend, Leo (my pet dog) was put to sleep after suffering from neural disease. I decided that I would dedicate this collection in his memory of passing, as this was the last project he would have seen before leaving this world.
Today I have one sweat Trukk that’s a kitbash based on the old Trukk model. I’ve made sure to make this model look as Orky as a scrap kan on wheels.
This Trukk will carry my Ork Boyz with shootas around to drop them off at a safe area to get closer into shooting range. Since I have ten Ork Boyz, they can fit into the Trukk (not practicals though, only four can fit into the back).
So will this be the last ever Ork kit? Nope, as if you’ve seen my previous post from last Sunday, I’ve found some classic Grots from a car boot sale. I didn’t have time to paint them due to time constraints and running low on yellow paint to cover them all. I’ll be painting them at some point in the near future along with some Ork Boyz (the four models I got with the Trukk) to completely finish this collection off.
Whilst I would like to continue adding more Orks to the project, I feel that this three month task should end today and nothing else should be added. Luckily I got those Grots and four Ork Boyz before the deadline, so they still count. I might paint them as a bonus challenge maybe?
Anyways, that about wrap things up here. I hope you have enjoyed this blog post series challenge, and if your keen to start your own three month challenge (or six if your crazy), I’d say go for it!
Thank you for reading this post. If you have any questions, post a comment below and I’ll reply back as soon as I can. Thanks!
