Loot it, deliver it, Mek it, fix it, alter it, weld it, fixing the stabilising heat gastronomic compulsion electro power it and paint it yellow. Now let’s get crazy!!!!
Took me nearly a whole afternoon painting this kitbashed creation, it was a really fun model to paint with so much room for details and tribal painting. But I didn’t want to go overboard on the Ork designs, so a small amount of yellow was used for the Ork pattern designs.
I’m very impressed with the results with the kitbash and painting. It fits perfectly with my Bad Moons collection as a fast attack vehicle. I wish I had more spare Ork Boyz to use for kitbashing more vehicle units for extra creative loot.
That’s it for my Ork project for now. Time to go back to the Stormcast Eternals once more.
Having achieved the impossible by making my own Gorkanought, I thought I’d do one more Ork related model before I wrap up the project (for now). Today is a really fast looted car that has been lovingly bolted and upgraded to Ork engineering standards.
I’m not sure what I’m substituting just yet, but judging by its load-out of ranges weaponry, it’s pretty much a Guardmans worst fear.
I’ll be back with an update on the painted outcome of this model.
Now that I have all the Greenskins at my disposal to wreck havoc on the Imperium (especially the Imperial Fists), I can show a definitive blog post showcase of all things Greenskin.
The Bad Moons Tribe project is a patrol detachment army that covers all the slots, a small but brutal party of war hungry rich Orks. My challenge for this project was to paint yellow armour, as yellow was difficult for me at the time. I also wanted to collect a Xenos army, as I didn’t have army at the time that was Xenos.
The project has remained the same for the past two years, although a few alterations have been made like my original Warboss now acting as a Big Mek. But the goal was still unchanged.
If the ‘new’ Ghazgul model looks amazing and worth the price tag, I’ll add him to my collection as a treat and paint him yellow. Yellow Orks are da best so suck on that you grumpy Goffs!
I’m not interested in adding anything else to the project as I feel happy with what I’ve got. I have a few Ork models spare but not worth adding as it’s small model count.
That’s all I have to show for this project showcase post, a small but fun army of rich entitled Greenskins gambling on their teeth, well, on the teeth they can accumulate from the horde. Now, how’s about a diorama photo post of Orks vs Crimson Fists?
My latest unit to be added to the Bad Moons Tribe patrol detachment is finally completed, Freebooters wielding big Dakka for adrenaline rush of big explosions!
Kitbashed Nobz from the Build+Paint series, I’ve made them into Freebooters as I needed one more Heavy Support unit for my patrol detachment. I’ve added some hand weapons to make them look like pirates, however their weapons are just replicas for authentic purposes, their real offensive power comes from their kustom heavy dakka.
Sadly, this is my last unit for the project as I’ve done everything to fill in the patrol detachment, a goal I set for myself back in 2018. Now that I’ve reached that goal, I can finally retire from the Orks project knowing that I’ve painted all the models I wanted.
This project has a special place in my hobby journey as it was the last project I was working on when my dog was still around. I did it as a tribute to him after he passed away during the early work on the project.
Now in 2020, I’ve achieved the goal. I feel happy with what I’ve achieved and the journey I’ve been through to build a smashing smug Bad Moons army.
But wait! It’s not over yet…… well yes the project is over now officially. But I do have four more Ork models in storage that I need to paint, including two Ork heavy gunners, a spare Ork Boy and a Warboss from Black Reach. Whilst I’ve already got a Warboss, I have a spare one that was including in the Build+Paint box set.
Orks will be still around on the blog for some time.
Damn, I missed the opportunity to do Orktober stuff this month! But never fear, I always have a plan…….even though it’s the last day of the month. Today I present my weirdest kitbash and my new centrepiece for my Bad Moons project, a Warboss in Mega armour.
Using a neglected Warjack from Warmachine, I made a kustom Ork model using all manner of bitz to create my own Warboss. I like his assistant who’s perched on the Warboss’s shoulder, like a mutant human that looks like an small Ork.
Finally after a year of acquiring this lot of classic Gretchins, I’ve painted a batch of twenty little green Hitchers all today! Talk about motivation!
That’s it from me for today. Got loads of stuff to do with drafting more blog content, it never seems to end lately!
Using unused models as something useful, my two Wild West Exodus models were reused as guard dogs for my Big Mek in mega armour! Combining Grot brains (fresh) with scrap automata shells, screw some bolts and plug in some green wires, with a coat of yellow paint and now your a proud owner of two mostly loyal companions!
