So, I'm finally starting an Ork army, as you can probably tell from the title I'm going with Kult of Speed! I figured this forum was the right place to put some photos
My plan is to have almost no infantry, just bikes and buggies and planes etc. and as with other threads I've done on other forums I'll be posting WIP pictures along with bits of fluff to go along.
My main inspirations are going to be old school hotrod artwork, things like Ed Roth (Ratfink) and Mad Max because
1) I've always been a huge fan of the series since I first saw them when I was like 12 and
2) as a huge film nerd from Australia it just seems right
I'll also be throwing the odd pop culture reference into my conversions, I feel you can get away with that with Orks more than any other race
The First 2 units I'm working on are my Warboss on Bike 'Guzrusha Sparktoof' and his retintue of Nob Bikers. My plan is to have 6 Nobs, each one modelled to look like one of the 6 Ork Clans, the idea being that the Warboss lets them keep they're original colours when they joined the Kult of Speed, he cares not for clans, only pure, unadulterated speed!!!!
So, on with the pictures
First up is the Boss Nob (Evil Suns)
Like all of my models, this army will have a lot of character in each model. I made this guy (yet to be named) look super casual even though he's going at high speed, He's such an experienced Evil Sun that only the toppest of top speeds gets him excited. He's also got a jerry can and a bunch of extra exhausts. Still a little bit of work to do on him, but not much!!
Next, My Bad Moons Nob
I've tried to make him looks as much like a Flash Git as possible, that's why he has 2 bosspoles and the plan is he will have the fanciest, shiniest bike! His gun is actually from Grukk face-rippa, just slightly converted. I also gave him extra long teef, because...Bad Moons
And finally the start of Warboss Sparktoof's bike
I extended the front forks and and the body, I used a power klaw for the body extension. This bike is much bigger than the others, which makes sense for the bike of a huge warboss!! I've done some more work to this since I took the photos, will probably upload new ones soon
So, there we go, I'm looking forward to this, I hope you are too!!
Any suggestions, question or comments???
