This is a horrible picture of the second Ork I ever painted. The original: Zed Mk I.

Most of my vehicle drivers are Madboy torsos, and I have a whole slew of old Deathskullz, Freebootaz, and generic Oddboyz just looking for a new home in my army.

QUOTE ('Culture vs. Kultur: Thoughts on Orkish Society' by Uthan the Perverse)
The Orks are the pinnacle of creation. For them, the great struggle is won. They have evolved a society which knows no stress or angst. Who are we to judge them? We panzee who have failed, or the Humans, on the road to ruin in their turn. And why? Because we sought answers to questions that an Ork wouldn't even bother to ask. We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude.

QUOTE ('Codex: Orks')
Orks being Orks, they care little either way.

My favorite though was the one with his minders holding him and aiming his whole body like a cannon for the old "power vomit" ork spell.

I've still got that one somewhere, painted up as a Freebooter, I think. I'll try and dig him out.

Some captain things...I don't really know what these are

They're the old clan Weerdboyz, as I recall. Nice models, and they can stand in for all sorts of stuff.

And another round of kool old skool minis :love

Those one are for Oddballz ;) At the time of their creation I named them Termi-snot but now I think it would be more appropriate to see them as Snot-Kan :lol Question: What was the base used to create them :?

Those are great fun. Very nice conversions, and a great idea. Based on the old Squat Exo-Armour, yes?

Very old skool Kommandos :biggrin

I've got a bunch of those guys lying around somewhere too. Unpainted, of course.

But then, my current "Skar Boyz" mob is made up of 2nd Ed plastic Goffs... well, they're veteran mini's at least, (as I rarely use them, they'll be the last to get up-graded to more orky orks)

The ones from the boxed game? I've got them standing in as Stormboyz of Khorne, who are themselves standing in as Trukk Boyz!

Anyone know what these cats were originally armed with???

Yeah, the fella in the middle is the Shokk Attack Gunner, although you could probably swap in any heavy weapon. The other arm, as has been pointed out, would have come from the Ork arms/weapons sprue, and as such could be anything you like.
The chap on the right is a basic Goff Nob, and I think the fella on the left is a Mek of some sort armed witha combi-weapon. Again, the missing arms came from the generic sprue, so could be anything.

and lastly, that's a goffik rocker, one of three, and they were never armed with anything more than musical instruments and bad attitudes!

As I remember, a Goff Rok band let your Boyz shoot twice (and charge twice as far?). You can still get the models from Mail Order, which has to be the oldest product they still offer.

Not quite happy with this guy, but meh, he'll do.

I've always loved this model (and never owned one!). How does he compare in terms of size to the newer Orks? He would have been a Boss back in the day, but I'd guess the best he can hope for today is being a Flash Git.

Those are 1st Ed Orks. The 2nd Ed plastic Orks are the ones with tri-horned helmets, a bolt pistol, and an axe. It looks like you've got one of them (with yellow horns) at the back with your aeroplane-thingie. It looks like you may have some over on the right too, at the back of the crowd, with red horns.

this one took a whole lot of time to complete, I haven't used any foundation paints and it was on a black udnercoat so you will be able to guess why it took that long ;)

Those 2nd Ed nobz completely passed me by for some reason. I'll have to see if I can find some of the models, as I quite like the look of them, and they shouldn't be too far out of scale with today's Orks.

the one I posted shouldn't be to hard to get, often you see them on ebay, however they aren't any good to mix up with the current orks, they are from the same hight, but their atanomy is completely different.

Oh I don't mind that. Orks are a lumpy and chaotic (little "c") species, so I've got a fair few body types in my mob! :biggrin

I'm using the same model, with a new PK as my PainBoss, SnikBad StabGit. He stands a tad taller than a regular boy, but if the boy stood straight, it'd be taller... Dent.
