Just a short post today as I’m feeling under the weather at the minute as I’ve caught a nasty cold, strangely. Anyways, today’s post I have four kitbashed Ork Boys who I’ve made into Commandos, using spare bitz to make them look more sneaky and more better equipped as veterans of jungle warfare.
These Ork Boyz were included in the Build+Paint Space Ork Trukk kit, which I was going to added to a second unit of Orks as a unit of 15. However, instead I went and kitbashed then as an elite unit, saves me money compared to buying the resin kits from GW.
My next step is to finish painting my Big Mek on Warbike by tomorrow or the day after, as that model is nearly completed. Then I’ll be doing the final phase of the project by painting an extra x10 Gretchins to my existing unit of x20, followed by a second unit of x30 Gretchins.
After that, I’m gong to wait for the new Codex to be released, as well as seeing if any of the new kits will be worth getting (if the price is justified). Crossing my fingers GW WONT scrap rules for the Big Mek on Bike, but it’s going to happen anyway.
I might start making my own Battlewagon or Ork Stompa from scratch once my Gretchins are done, although that will take some time to plan out as well as materials needed to build these machines. I’ve been reading old WD issues lately which has inspired me to try and do more scratch built models to save more money.
I’m really not interested in buying the official models as they’re too expensive (considering the Stompa used to cost £60 back during its release in 2009). Lately I’ve been very sceptical about GW’s pricing on kits, especially now that most new AoS factions battling units are £30 a box. I’ll elaborate more on my thoughts for another time.
Also I’m not impressed with GW’s *oversea pricing Changes on FW products, after watching MFTOC and Leeky Cheese’s videos on the subject, I feel that GW (Warhammer Community) has yet again been terrible with it’s communication to the consumers. Unless things change for the better for overseas hobbyists, I doubt the community will be forgiving to GW and FW anytime soon.
(*this doesn’t affect me as I live in the U.K., however, I’m not happy with these price increases as I now the hobby has grown to be a world wide community).
Anyways, that’s it for me for today. I’ll be back soon with a new post once I’m feeling better. Until next time!
