Wanted to do a different take on the orks -- something with a bit more...respectability. Hopefully this hits the spot, still 'ard, but also with some sense of cunning/planning/not being comic relief.

I like the idea, I would like to see a closer up shot of the page.

I think his gun needs to be bigger, however :D

I also think he is very upright standing, for an ork...deliberate?

Intruiging...kind of reminds me of the 2nd edition Orks, however mixed with a feeling of the current edition! Well done! Who are the Flyboyz though? When did GW come up with those?:eek:

Check your PM

Thanks, I think you're right about the gun. Next version I will probably enlarge it some. I did want him to be upright, because I figured that it's probably a different "breed" that takes to the skies, and I also wanted a more vertical composition, I think it's more dramatic.

Thanks for the compliment. Flyboy is just another word I used for stormboyz, because I wanted to make a picture of an ork who was more focused on the mek side, excited about flying around with a huge rocket on his back for the sake of flying around and blasting stuff. The GW stormboys seem to me less interested in their rockets except for as a means to get to the enemy.

Nice, however I think his build is a little thin/upright for an Ork

Oh well, orks are weird, its possible that an ork like that could just occur for no reason really.

nice pic,i think you've captured the determination well,and i agree with you ,
it's about time the ''joke'' element was got rid of in orks ,just leave all that silly business to the gretchins
