Hi everyone, this is my first post here.

I have been preparing for some Gorkamorka gaming over the last few months. In addition to getting a lot of terrain ready I have been getting a few orks painted up for my mob Da Bigdogz. These are the first orks that I have painted since 1997 or so :D

Budget is tight chez Cheetor so the majority of the figures used are the guys from Black Reach, with a few simple conversions here and there. I also used one box of Ork Boyz plus a few bits that I got on ebay.

I tried to ensure that the paint job would be easy and quick to replicate as I didnt want to get bogged down in a complicated scheme. I tried out a couple of others on test figures until I got one that worked for me. It ended up being a pretty traditional scheme. Its not showcase army standard or anything but it is pretty neat and has enough contrast to look good on the table I think.

The cyborks below have magnets inserted at the waist. As I was running out of torso parts from the Boyz set I only have two cybork torsos and six pairs of legs (from Kromlech). That why the torsos repeat in the next three photos.

I painted up three resin vehicles from Ramshackle Games for the Bigdogz. Although they are painted primarily for use in GoMo I wanted them to be suitable for use in other post apocalyptic games. Therefore I avoided using specifically orky iconography. That is also why the photos include some post-apoc humans as well as orks.

I have more figures than I need painted up for GoMo now but I will continue until I have painted up the remaining fifteen or so that I have, largely because I have enjoyed the ork painting project a whole lot.

More details regarding my ork related stuff can be found on my blog if you are interested.

Comments and criticisms are all welcome of course. Thanks for looking :)

Thanks. I have some GoMo planned for next weekend. I will be taking photos and recording some of the games so I may post on the GoMo forums after that.

Thanks!


nice idea with the old body+new head for yoofs. Looks a bit off but certainly gets the idea through.



The modern heads are just a fraction big alright, but like you said, it gets the idea across. I just imagine that adolescent orks are as gawky looking as human ones and then the big headed yoofs look fine to me ;)


And finally I see the kromlech stuff in use. I'll have to grab it sooner or later, very sweet!!



The Kromlech cybork stuff is great. I ordered the cybork arms once I saw the quality of the "legs". They are fantastic.

Thanks for the feedback!

Hell yeah!

Those bodies go surprisingly well with the current ork heads actually. I would rather that they were not barefoot, but for Frankenork (or a Snake Bite Nob) they are chunky and fun.

Thanks Curtis.

I have had problems painting vehicles in the past but I actually enjoyed painting the three Ramshackle vehicles shown here.

The blue one (The Skeeta I think?) is a particularly nice design. It looks rugged and reliable to me, like a Tonka toy :)
