Whoa! I am so subscribing to this! Those conversions are sweet! I especially love that mekboy force field generator.

Love the modelling and I'd love to see a few close-ups of the painted orks (if possible) I like the skintones.

aye, from what I can see those orks are painted fantastically. I second the comment saying how cool the mekboy conversion idea is, as well, and would love to see close-ups of the painted orks.

Those are some sweet conversions! I was really wondering how you did the skin on your orks? possibly a tut? I do mine with goblin green then dark angels wash and a yellow dry brush, but yours stand out so much better! Do you use white or black primer as well? Anyways I am going to be sure to subscribe to this thread, I'm a ork player as well but I am seriously lacking motivation to paint mine, hopefully you can help me with it.

Gorgeous, they look very mean indeed. I like the amount of detail you have gotten into even the flat surfaces. They look very good indeed, the flesh and blade edges in particular are very nice.

Strelok
28-04-2007, 17:05
An excellent standard of painting indeed. I like the level of highlighting on the skin, and the lighting-style on the edges of the blades looks quite nice. Now I just have to get to painting the three orks I have finished for my deathwatch diorama to a similar standard...

This is an awesome army. Wish my orks were that good looking! Even though I agree with Sling, some of the red parts should be a bit darker. But brilliant work anyway.

What are you going to do with the bases?

My friend currently borrowed my carmera for the week, so i will try to put up some pics of my whole painted army and battle reports and some other pics i took on the day.

Great reports, and great looking army. Congrats on the award too, well deserved. The demonbomb you fought was funny to see, 1) because it's a nurgle bomb, one of the worst gods for bombing IMO and 2) it's so slow and only 750 pts! Well crushed all the same.

Your commandos continue to be totally sweet, as is your mek.

hi,
after the looooooooooonnng wait, the new space orks are finially released, so it's time to upgrade my ork army.

I have got a 1850 points tournment coming up on the 9-10 Feb, and i really want to try out my NeW Ork. With the new Codex, my old 750 points ork army only adds up to around 500 points now, so i have to paint 1350 points in 20 days in order to get this army onto the table.

not sure if i can make it, but i will try!

this is my "try out" 1850 points new list
