Hey Warboss Tae here with my first ever 40k army.

Fluff-wise, it's a freebootin', world-hoppin', fungus-beer-drinkin' mob of orks that have left their separate clans to join Azbag da Stomper'er's space-farin' Waaagh!

I like painting all of the different clans and thought, "Why bog myself down with one of the six clans, when I can paint stuff from each one?\" Hence, the freebooter theme.

Also, I thought, why just have squads of each clan (a squad of Deathskull lootaz, a squad of Evil Sunz bikerz) when I can mix em all up? So, my solution was to create the following table and roll a D6 for each model in the unit, to decide what clan the model originally came from, then paint it accordingly. It's kept it fun and kept me interested in continuing to find new and interesting ways to convert and paint the models once I knew where they came from.

Case in point, I knew that one of my Nobz would have a power klaw and a WAAAGH banner, so I rolled on the following table:

1-Snakebite
2-Deathskull
3-Evil Sunz
4-Goff
5-Blood Axe
6-Bad Moonz

I roll a 1.

So, a Snakebite, eh? That influenced how I would model and paint him. I gave him some Warhammer Fantasy bitz like the bull skull helmet and a Fantasy Goblin Standard, and thought, since he cam from the tribal and primitive Snakebite clan, it would be hilarious to give his Power Klaw a hand crank, to show that each time he wanted to use it, he'd have to crank it up to get it going!

Hope you guys like them, I'll continue to post pics as I progress!

Here's my Warboss, Azbag da Stomper-er:

:eek These are awesome :! The painting is fantastic & the conversion here & there really stand out. I especially like the gauges from the stormboyz sprue on the Major Bludd's shoulder, very convincing cybork & how you did Smash Atom's face is just classic :thumbs Gotta love dem Freebottaz :cheers

This is why I think there should be drug testing in this hobby… Seriously, great stuff! Lot’s of imagination well executed. I have the same painted up lascannons left over from my old (sold) 'umie army, gathering dust. You’ve given me a use for them.

Nice paint job. Any chance we can get a group picture to see what the different colors all look like together? I too contemplated this concept, but feared I would end up with a mob looking like a bag of skittles; I decided just to stick with entire mobs from one clan. Thanks.

Oi, mates! Thanks for the kind words! Zagursnik - I'm really happy you noticed the fuel gauges on Major Bludd! I was digging around my bitz box and noticed that you get extra rocket accessories in the stormboyz box (it's the age old Hot Dogs/Hot Dog Buns package enigma), and thought the gauges would make a great Cybork conversion. Also, if you look hard, you can see that I actually added a Cadia decal to Major Bludd's left shoulderplate, and with the paint scheme, I wanted it to represent that Major Bludd tore off some scrap from an 'umie tank and riveted it to his shoulder for extra 'ard 'armor plating. Nazdak - I'm working on the last few Nobz and would like to base them before I take a 'family photo'. I do keep them close to each other on my table though, and I can tell you, even though they do look like a big bag of dead 'ard skittles, I believe that the unified way I paint their skin seems to tie them all together. If I wanted to have a completely unified looking army, I would've gone with beakies haha!

I look forward to the group pic.

By the way, you have not ended up with skittles at all - all your models look great and the bright colors are my favorite part of the paint job.

But I would have definitely ended up with a bunch of skittles.

Oi!

Here are some shots of my first slugga mob, I still need to finish the Nob and a few more, but I thought you guys might like to see what I have so far!

I gave the Blood Axe his own picture because he was the first 40k Ork I ever painted and I lavished him with detail, even though he's a regular AoBR boy. I gave him a Greenstuffed beret and a few tattoos (one that says "MOM" on his left shoulder and a Blood Axe icon on his right forearm). Also, if you'll notice, I drilled some holes in one of the Deathskulls' helmet, which previously belonged to a goff before it was 'acquired' and given a coat of blue paint

Hope you guys like em!

My favorite part was painting the little red commie star on Korpral Putz' hat!

Rolled up a Blood Axe for my first meganob and thought I'd do him up in style!

Also, here's my interpretation of the Apcoalypse formation "Loota Wreckin' Krew". I rolled up Deathskulls for the trukk and Snakebite and Evil Sunz for the two lootaz in the bed. I originally thought of having all four lootaz and mek boy in the bed of the trukk (by removing the walls and using them as extensions to the main trukk bed, but I decided in the end that there were too many figures and it made the whole thing look too crowded. Also, I didn't want to cut up a perfectly good loota model to represent the special rule of designating a loota model to be killed by indiscriminate fire when rolling a 'natural 1' to determine number of shots, so instead I decided to model the Evil Sunz boy as he's about to fall off the trukk after slipping on a banana peel (which must've been dropped by that no good fruit eatin' Snakebite). I greenstuffed the banana peel.
