After some time off, I am back to the world of mini painting. To get back to the grind of mini painting, I decided to sharpen my teeth with some orks. I've collected a few ork armies over the years, but this is the first with any real inspiration other than "these are bad moons and they like to kill stuff".
I never had the chance to play in the rogue trader days, but I've always loved the imagery portrayed when compared to the trite universe 40k has become now.
Here's the primary inspiration for the color scheme.
Here's the scheme applied to models. I plan to use the same scheme minus the flames on the arms.
Morbog's household boys were the bad moon unit from Ghazghkull's waaagh. From the fluff, a household generally provides one unit for the army. So, it looks like Morbog is leading his own waaagh now.
The list I created is still pretty rough. I tried to base it off of typical bad moon fluff.
At 1k pts:
1 Mega-Armoured Warboss
1 Big Mek w/ KFF
4x Mega-Nobz + Trukk
9x Lootas + Mekboy
11x Choppa Boys + PK Nob + Trukk
19x Shoota Boys + Nob
3 Kanz w/ Grotzooka
Hopefully it will be a decent hammer/anvil list, but I'm not particularly worried. I won't even get to playtest it until I have it all built up and painted anyway.
Further down the road, I plan to add scratch-built tanks designed from epic scale models. A stompa will most likely make the cut as well as a unit or two of flash gitz purely for painting/modeling satisfaction. The SAG mek will get painted up for sure, since it is a fun model. Oh, and the FW kommandos...
The purpose of this log is to keep track of my progress as well as motivation to keep going, so any comments, suggestions, or questions is appreciated.
Thanks for looking.
