Make them do the burny dance!
Time to try some osl again. The body is old Microarts longcoat orc (they don't make these anymore), burna-boy-bitz are GW and the flame is GS over wire, sculpted by me. It's clearly an ork, though the only bit of green skin visible is the right index finger pulling the trigger.
I'm actually pretty happy with the result, there were moments I was sure I could not pull this off. The OSL is the main point, not much details on the back.
I broke off a bit of the flame near the nozzle while glueing it on, but decided to take the pics anyway, might take weeks before I'll get around to fix that - if at all.

"Avin troubles wif 'uumie assassins? 'Ave one of your own! Assassin Kreek for hire! Silent like thunder! Sudden as night! Garantee result or keep teef."
It's Orc with Cloak by Spellcrow, from Umbra Turris-line, another great sculpt from them. I wanted to do some freehand on the of inside his cloak, the Assassin's Creed icon (orkyfied) was the logical choice.
I also meat to paint a line of skulls on the yellow hem of the cloak, but gave up after three and painted over them. They were so small and fiddly and looked more like stains than skulls.

Hello Green friends!
With the new 40k edition i've started to feel the need to make something to honour my greenskin spirit! But unfortunately the will to make another ork warband is not great; ive painted too much ork boyz, i know they are never enough but im also a painter slow as hell so i must abdicate!
OT and i have little dream of new orks boyz kit sooner or later, the current are always cool but they have almost my age , i would really appreciate some new boyz!! /OT
Oook so thinking of what to do came up in my mind gorkamorka! And from gorkamorka-----> digganob!
I love to convert models and with all the range of these days there are a lot of miniatures adaptable for being diggas!
I dont know how much time and how many models i will do, but i can ensure you that this is one of the most important project (talking about feelings ) i have ever started and i will always try to continue it!
Stop talking i show you the first models, 3 digganob, from left to right: Grummok, Sharko Boy, Psycho Kane
edit: old link are dead so i post here all the pics:

I am excited if only because there are people actually checking this place. I joined a facebook ork group out of desperation, but I like this place better.

The... Following 6 Hours are a bit hazy, but somehow I added a giant Rokkit fist, and a second Huge Zzap gun... then primed, and Dry brushed the metals on.
Then came the Base coats of yellow.
Then... a bunch of Washes and Additonal colors later
I still call it a WIP as it has no proper base, and I want to do a bit more detail (like... painting up the Trophy Knight Helms to be of Knight houses I've fought against. BUT... its nearing completion.

Thats just it though, the old fluff wasnt all that good. Youre implying the fluff was heads and shoulders better than whats out there now. [...] Have you ever really sat down and read all those old codex and supplements?

Armored Walker started a topic on converting BloodBowl orcs into 40k orks http://www.the-waaag...showtopic=54772 just as I was looking to expand my OozToof?s, and one of the mobs I'm short of is a DeffSkulz nobzmob, and as imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and DeffSkulz are renown for their sincerity......
Well, it wouldn't be a DeffSkulz build if it wasn't looted
So, yesterday my Scourged Eye BloodBowl team landed, you get two identysprues of six so I pulled the same ones of them off the two sprues and sent one to da painboy
And this morning pulled another one apart too, had a rummage through my nobzbitz box, found some likely looking bitz and started putting them together again - the one in the middle is the standard GW approved build of the one on the left
The kombiskorchaz barrel is a bit higher than it should be 'coz 'is right arm keeps slipping down, but they're about right for size and they've got a proppa skrappy DeffSkulzy sort of look to them - off to carve a few more up now

A little fun project, converting the new Bloodbowl orcs to 40K orks. So far half of them about built, just hand and head swaps really with some GS for gaps.
Nob from the black orc:
These guys are bigger than regular boyz, and on 30mm bases:
These guys were the easy part, next I'll try to do the same thing again with different results. As there are two identical sprues in the box, I'll try to make the boyz look slightly different with some re-positioning of arms and legs, and also to give every boy a different helmeted head to increase diversity.
As I've got some free time this week, you might see some results actually quite soon.

Flakka Dakka Trukk, Moar Dakka Edition...
Okay, I'm real proud... uh chuffed... with how this turned out. Not to say that I won't add glyphage or other tidbits of detailing, but the turret and gunz are done (minus final gluing) and I'm happy with 'em. I think they'll even pop more after paint which will bring up some of the odd details (like the fire extinguisher), although that's probably a couple weeks away (given other projects getting in the way).

Pretty boring title, eh? Everybody builds trukks all the time. Yeah, well, it's been eons since I built anything mek. This trukk kit was a Christmas gift from... oh hell, like eight or ten years ago. So I figured I'd go ahead and finally do the project I had planned way back then. Here's what I've managed in the last fortnight.
The trukk is assembled to the point that it's ready for paint. Gunner, driver, and such left separate for ease of painting. The rest of the "accessories" are still WIP.
The plan is simple: one trukk, three beds. The first one will be the out-of-the-box trukk bed. The second will be a near-as-I-can-mek-it copy, but full of boyz. That's right, ten trukk boyz, glued in place, doing the usual... shootin', preparin' to drop the boarding plank, punchin each uvva inda face, you know, da usual. And then, since you're already dealing with a magnetized bed, why not make a flakka dakka gun as a nice, noisy, shooty option.
The flak gun is inspired by the WWII German Wirbelwind and American Quad .50 cal. It's nowhere near complete, but I've got the basics down. The turret will go onto the round platform (and be able to rotate). The guns still need some sort of hub attachment to the turret. They should be able to elevate if I get it right. The platform will need to be mounted onto a magnetized bed to match the others (which I haven't started yet).
So you can see why I'm not much of a mad mek... only this accomplished in two weeks. I sweat little details that aren't even visible and simple things (like cutting p-card straight) give me fits. And all the while I think what a this is going to be to paint. Gork and Mork, I love this hobby!

So this whale is back on the bench
Now it's down to the details; pick one, knock it out and move on to the next one. Pretty soon I should be done.
The metallics took for ever and it's not a dramatic change from back when I put it on hold again. I'll be finishing off the wing details first, then on to the deff arsenal - which I'm is going to suck since I made it so danged detailed. Anyway, here's some pics of progress.

As many of you may know the Waaagh Website has been giving me problems with posting my Tactica. It didn't like the gigantic walls of text I was trying to insert into the previous thread. For the time being I am not going to try again. Instead, I have compiled the entire thing into a PDF and made it available for download. For now it is just available through Dropbox, but hopefully at some point it will become available directly through The Waaagh so that we can attract new players. Anyways, the Table of Contents lists the various sections and acts as links to those sections. There is also an Index where I tried to cross reference things in case you wanted more info on a specific unit or somesuch. I hope you enjoy.

I've been kinda off the hobby for some time lately, as we had to move away while some renovations were done in our home. Now we're back to new sewers, new bathroom, new electrick wiring, the werks. The place should be good for the next 50 years now, I might even have paid the loan by then!
I took my paints and some models to our evac place, and tho' I did not much feel like painting, somethings got done anyway.
As you can see these guys are Evil Suns, I haven't done those in a while. Emblem to prove it:
I thought to add some diversity by painting their clothes different colours, the similar armor bitz will unify the look. It's slow going as I started painting the armor chipped and worn.

There's hatedoms for everything. That includes hatedoms.
I've not encountered much "hate" for Orks offline. Online, quite a bit. The only point of criticism I've ever seen that bothers me is the one that asserts that Orks are not inkeeping with 40k's Grimdark theme, and are too "zany", and thus don't fit. To me, that just reaks of a poor understanding of 40k fluff, what it is, and how Orks fit within it. Partly because Orks aren't funny. Other than that, it's differing tastes, and sour grapes, really.
My advice is simple. If you can defend, justify and find happiness with your love of Orks, then their opinions are entirely immaterial. All they can do is disagree, and if you're happy with Orks they don't matter.
The best solution is to be a good Ork player. Be a great ambassador for the faction, and show the rest of the community how cool we are and how awesome our stuff is. I find that a community that has one or two established good Ork players end up with the opinion that Ork Players are fun and that they add to the player community experience. That's how to change stuff like that.
