This model was converted using a spare old model from Warmachine and plethora of spare bitz, mostly from the Orks range. Since I would’ve had to spend a lot of money just to get the official Big Mek from GW, I decided to try and kit bash anything I could find that would look ‘big’.
Whilst I won’t be able to play this big chap at any GW stores, I can at least be proud that I used my imagination to create my own Mek.
My ever growing horse of Orks is gaining a lot of attention now with forty Gretchins, four Ork Commandos and a Big Mek on a Warbike to paint, I’ve still got plenty to do with 40k stuff.
Lately I’ve been feeling off-put from typing blog posts this month, not because I don’t like blogging anymore, but I just feel uninspired to do much. I think it’s down to two things 1) the whole AoS series I’m currently working on that’s making me less enthusiastic, from doing the same thing over and over, especially the SE models. 2) I need to take more breaks off painting, as I’m burning myself out with the amount of stuff I’m doing atm. I’ve got quite a few models ready for photography, but I don’t want to use up all of my photography backlog.
I don’t dislike SE, I think their amazing currently with the Sacrosanct Chamber released, however, the models get boring to paint for long period of time as they look nearly identical. The Nifhthaunt on the other hand were so much more appealing to paint, since every unit looks slightly different in design and form.
So I’m taking a break from painting AoS stuff whilst I get back into painting more Orks. With the announcement that Orktober will be a thing, I’m trying to paint as many Orks as I can to be ready for the Codex release.
So expect to see some more greenskins from me for the next couple of *weeks! 🙂
*- Also I’ll be featuring other stuff including a stand-alone Bloodbowl post, some Nighthaunt models and more!
