That's enough of these guys for now. I have a sufficient supply of painted orks to play pretty much any sized game of RT that takes my fancy. I picked up a metric tonne of these guys at a convention a few years back (I think it was "Little Wars Melbourne" 2012/13). They were cheap, like me, and like most cheap second hand minis, painted terribly. Can't expect GD quality for peanuts now can you!
I put up their "Tubman's" quality paint jobs while I was back home last year, just so I could get some gaming in with them. But as soon as I got the chance I drowned these mofo's in Acetone & began painting in earnest.
Here's the culmination of almost a years worth of toil at my painting desk, gaze upon my (insert crude comment) & dispare!!!!
|24 Greenskin's, reborn! Their ranks now swelled by the addition of six more suckers.|
|Here they are, six freshly painted green gorillas. All except Thrugg has been converted or repaired in some way.|
|Hruk, with his dagger arm reattached, 2IC to Thrugg.|
|New barrel fitted to the heavy bolter, raped from a Gundham kit.|
|Hand & flamer conversion, ala Dave Andrew's copy. I used an RBT01 SM|
flamer & a hand from....? I don't know, I can't remember. JB sent it to me,
|Red era dude with a new bionic arm/power fist & his top spike removed. His|
buddy is an RT era standard bearer, with his mangled arm removed & improved.
|I like the arm, but I'm not sure on the colour choice. Oh well, |
the damage has been done and that's the way it'll stay.
|I remembered after I took this photo that I've still got to add|
some crusty blood onto his shoulder socket. I'll use my Tamiya
clear + paint combo for that task.
|I'm pretty happy with how this guy turned out.|
|His name is Brad, his memory's not too good, so he's stitched his |
name onto his shirt as a constant reminder. Clever huh?
|"Where's dem pretty boy's in der pwastic arma? I gunna |
carve some up!!!
I'm really happy I've got Thrugg Bullneck too. He really does add something intangibly badarse to an ork army, like his some sort of leader of an outlaw bikey gang. Maybe it's just coz he came in the first box set? I'm not sure, but I likes him!
He was kindly donated to me by Captain Crooks, a fellow convict. Much appreciated Crooksey :)
Ok, that's it from me for a bit, I've gotta crack on & finish off the Grav tank by the end of this week. Wish me luck!
