I would like to show you project I have started about one year ago. I was working on it through 2018, adding troops and vehicles. Hope you enjoy it.
Gretchinz are smaller and weaker than Orkz but in a great numbers they still may cause problems.
I needed them to put some on tanks and as a crew members of my Mek Gun. I'm still not sure about legs, they feel a bit to blocky.
Standard soldier of WAAAGH!!!
This one is armed with Choppa and Slugga, other have Shootas, Stikkbombs, Tankbusta bombs. Some may have heavy weapons - Rokkit launchas, Burnas, or Deffgun.
Orkz have really simple hierarchy - smaller Orkz follow orders of bigger ones. Nobz are bigger than standard Boyz and I was trying to get that in my models - Nobz are a bit bigger but basically the same.
Mek in Armour:
Meks are crazy Orkz who construct vehicles and weapons for WAAAGH!!!
Painboyz are those who put together injured Orkz... or replace their limbs with mechanical ones.
Warboss is the Boss of whole WAAAGH!!! - he is the biggest and the strongest of all Orkz. Well, if he is not, then he stops being Boss and starts being dead.
I wanted this photo to have some table top vibe. One can buy box of ten Boyz and one Nob, put them together and paint. I just had to put them together. :D
I had no experience with cars (once I have built some police car and a colleague drom my LUG, to whom I showed it, said that I should just stop) so I wasn't sure how it will work. Both cars now looks slightly different, I have improved them a bit - added some Gunz to the first one and rebuilt the front of the second one but unfortunately I don't yet have photos. Those cars are highly Mad Max inspired.
Same story with bikes - before I build them only with molded parts but for Orkz I needed something bigger. I'm really happy with the results, already built third one. Photo will be posted soon.
I have photos of two Killa Kans (already built third one, will post photo soon). Those are basically giant metal cans with pilot welded inside, armed with some nasty close combat weapons, like Killa Saw, Drilla, Klaw, Wrecker and some giant range combat weapon.
It's basically bigger version of Killa Kan with four arms so it carries more and bigger weapons.
Looted T'au drone
Very important part of Orkz' culture is looting. What they find at the battlefield, they "repair" and use as their own.
That flying vehicle can transport up to four Boyz. When it's empty, deck may be closed. It's armed with Big Shoota, some Rokkits and giant bomb hidden at the back.
When I spotted those for the first time at Forge World (not available at Games Workshop) I knew that I need them for my army. Those are expected to be cartoonish and a bit silly. People made them with Toy Soldiers tanks. Love them and definitely need more.
One of Mek Gunz. Once I have seen a game in which Ork player used them and demolished his opponent. Already bought parts for second one - Buble Chukka. This name is soooo cool that I need it as an addition to my WAAAGH!!!
The last one, my biggest one (for now :P). I had a lot of problems with turret, this is third or fourth version and I'm happy with the shape and how I put a cannon but it still needs to be work with. I have learned some Technic techniques building this little monster and the next one is built with more sense so good for me. :D
Thank you if you get through whole post, it's really long. To be honest, I haven't realized that I have so many of it. When I had uploaded all the photos to Flickr, my browser just added uploading section as one of my favorite websites. xD
Check my Flickr account for more, I have posted only part of my still growing WAAAGH!!!
C&C welcome. ;)
