    Bob Hunk vs. Da Orks! (Blood Axes)

    Hello to my fellow Warseers, and thanks for taking an interest in my first project log. Some of you may have seen some snaps of my Blood Axes floating around on the “Who Loves Orks?” thread. I’d been meaning to do an Ork army for quite a while – I’ve been in this hobby for at least a decade – but never really got around to it, until last summer when I finally had a spare bit of time and cash.
    I decided on a Blood Axe themed army without a moment’s hesitation, I just love their pseudo-military styling and mercenary nature. The initial list I devised was an all footslogging force using Codex: Orks rather than the clan list. I tried it out in a couple of games using proxies and undercoated models, but it didn’t function as well as I’d have liked. But I learned from my mistakes in true Blood Axe fashion, and now my list has evolved into the following…

    Nuzzgrond’s Dead ‘Ard Shooty Boyz – 1500 points

    HQ

    Kaptain Nuzzgrond, Warboss (60)
    ‘Eavy Armour (8), Shiny Medal [counts as Big Horns] (6), Shoota w/ ‘More Dakka’ & ‘Shootier’ (8), Choppa (2)
    Total – 85

    Doc Zugberg, Painboss (25)
    ‘Eavy Armour (8), Power Klaw (25), Choppa (2), Dok’s Tools (1)
    Zugberg’s “Patients”, 9 Cyborks (117)
    Da Ambulance, Trukk (30)
    Armour Plates (5), Grot Riggers (2)
    Total – 207

    ELITES

    Grimtuff’s ‘Ard Boyz, 15 ‘Ard Boyz (180)
    3 Big Shootas (24), 9 Shootas (0), 2 Choppas & Sluggas (0)
    Grimtuff, Nob upgrade (16), Big Shoota (12), Power Klaw (25).
    Total – 257

    Gron’s Sneaky Kommandos, 7 Kommandos (70)
    Big Shoota (8), 5 Shootas (0)
    Gron, Nob upgrade (11), Big Shoota (12), Power Klaw (25)
    Total – 126

    Gutsnik’s Choppy Kommandos, 7 Kommandos (70)
    7 Choppas & Sluggas (0)
    Gutsnik, Nob upgrade (11), Choppa (0), Power Klaw (25)
    Total – 106

    TROOPS

    Muggrub’s Dakka Mob, 10 Shoota Boyz (80)
    3 Big Shootas (24)
    Muggrub, Nob upgrade (12), Big Shoota (12), Choppa (2), Bosspole (3).
    Total – 133

    Gobshak’s Shoota Mob, 10 Shoota Boyz (80)
    3 Big Shootas (24)
    Gobshak, Nob upgrade (12), Big Shoota (12), Choppa (2), Bosspole (3).
    Total – 133

    Badrot’s Tank Fraggerz, 10 Tank Bustas (110)
    3 Rokkit Launchas (21)
    Badrot, Nob upgrade (11), Rokkit Launcha (8), Bosspole (3).
    Total – 153

    HEAVY SUPPORT

    Nuzzgrond’s Boss Wagon, Battlewagon (120)
    Zzap Gun (15), Armour Plates (10), Grot Riggers (2)
    Total – 147

    Da Wagons, 3 Looted Rhinos (150)
    Total – 150

    ARMY TOTAL – 1497 points / 70 Infantry / 5 Vehicles

    Is this the most effective Ork list ever devised? Erm, probably not, but I’m trying to stick with the Blood Axe character, and I’m pretty happy with the choices I’ve made. I also have a FW Fighter-Bomba (piloted by the legendary “Squiggles”) and a couple of Dreads which I’ll use to expand the list up to 2k.

    Alright, that’s enough chat, onto the pretty pictures of all the models that I’ve managed to finish so far.



    This is Kaptin Nuzzgrond, my Warboss. He was actually my first large-scale use of green stuff, and I think he turned out pretty well.



    Next we have Doc Zugburg, my Painboss. You’ll notice his weapons are different from those mentioned above as he was built for the previous version of the army list, so these will be changed eventually. I also want to redo the mirror on his head to get it a bit more circular.

    Grimtuff’s ‘Ard Boyz, Nuzzgrond’s bodyguard who’ll be riding with him in the Battle Wagon.





    Muggrub’s Dakka Mob. There’s only ten of them as they will take one of the three looted rhinos. Note the captured/traded Imperial kit and the GS headgear.

    This is what Muggrub and his boyz will be zooming around the battlefield in.




    Here is Gobshak’s Shoota Mob as it currently stands, still very much a WIP. Gobshak is made using parts from the WHFB Orc command sprue.

    That’s pretty much all the painted stuff I have so far. Most of the other models are undercoated and awaiting the attention of my paintbrush. Unfortunately I paint very slowly and meticulously, so I can’t guarantee the regularity of updates to this log, but I’m kinda hoping that people yelling encouragement might make me pick up the pace a bit.

    Until the next update then…

    Kaptin Nuzzgrund is awsome!!! You sod, I was hoping to leave my orks alone until the new dex comes out, this may have just tipped me over the edge as I'm going to have to have a go at him! I hope you don't mind?

    Nice Orky army! I really like your HQ models. Your Rhino is also brilliant - simple paint scheme and minimal conversion (well compared to other Orky players) yet it's still a totally Orky vehicle.

    Keep up the good work.

    That rhino is so cool. Its really blood axey too, not non decorated as many poor excuses for looted vehicles are and not over decorated like over excited ork players can get!

    and I really love the highlights etc on the skin!

    Oh and the Doc is amazing and I love the caps!

    I would love to see this in person... oh wait I have already

    Well painted and converted, congrats.

    When I first saw the huge amount of shoota boys I thought maybe you'd been hit in the head a few too many times. Then I thought just how many shoota boys you're gonna be able to field. Then I got scared.

    I suppose if you don't fight meqs that much (like that'll ever happen round here) choppas aren't that much of a necessity.

    Hey Bob.

    A good start on the Blood Axes. You have a nice solid theme running through the army with the use of shootas and headgear. I'm always surprised how 'right' a beret looks on an ork. Strange but true.
    An Ork WAAAGH! is a cross between a holy crusade and a pub crawl.

    As I've said before, these guys are spiffy cool; and I think the army as a whole is going to be really striking – the WIP games we've had are always great fun.

    I like the 'ard boyz best of all, I think – the metalwork on them is just really fresh-looking, even with the weathering; and that just makes them look realistic (or at least as realistic as orkses ever are!)

    Seven mechandendrites up, and keep 'em coming!
