Long ago I fell in love with Gorkamorka and orks. Models were hard to come by back then due to both price and distance but I had a fully stock basement garage and a house full of bitz once I learned what to look for. Old kits were bashed into ork vehicles and even the old 2nd edition starter orks were converted and pushed into the mobs. About a year ago I wanted to start a proper ork army that could thematically include these old models.
We're going to have a ragtag freeboota gang that takes in orks of all sizes that don't have anywhere else to belong. All in the name of acquiring loot to make more killy things.
Meet what I call the Stunties (cos they're short and they don't make 'em like that anymore har). They might not be ideal but I'm making a few more just so the existing ones don't stand out. I'll go into more detail on how I made them later.
Here are da Yoofs. Gorkamorka orks with modern ork weapons. Unlike some ork waaaghs where boyz of the same age naturally form into mobs, we're going to mix our yoofs in with the other mobs.
Current status of fully painted and based models: 5 shoota boyz, 3 big shootas, 18 choppa boyz, 1 rokkit trakk and 2 rokkit buggies, 1 mek, 1 counts-as-trukk and future big trakk
I think the key to making these different models mesh as an army is a consistent paint scheme, everyone on scenic bases, and a few conversions details spread across models. I also want to add a more freeboota touches because who doesn't like pirates?
Needs painting: undercoated shoota and choppa boyz, 2 nobz, Nazgrub Wurrzag, 3 deffcopters, 2 scratch built trukks, painboy and grot orderly
Under construction: Tankbustas
Future plans: AoBR warboss conversion, more rokkit buggies and trakks, nobz, lootas, bikers, battlewagon, meks, painboyz, mekboy junka
Prototype loota. A bit non traditional but does it work?
