Halfway done this commission. The group shots of the Orks. A lovely variety of colour, despite the focus on Evil Sunz for most units.

I am particularly proud of the Dakka Jets’ weathering and freehand. They look fantastic. The giant mega armoured warboss looks great as well. Artel W is now on my radar when looking at more minis.

The last of the models in this half of the commission are now done! Here are the last 6 Mega Armoured Nobz and a Nob with a Waaagh banner. These models are also from Kromlech, highly recommend their Ork kits for some alternative sculpts for your army.

Group shots coming soon.

More minis from Kromlech! From their Orc Mecha-armour line. The variants consist of buzzsaws, drills, claws, and big shootas. I separated the squads by doing different coloured wiring. I wanted to do different coloured armoured plates, but determined it’d be too hard to see the difference when I added the weathering.

Almost done!

Finally, the little humies get part of a battletome, and a cool one too! Now that I have access to a laser cutter, I thought it was high time to rebase my old Empire army. I designed a cobblestone texture and had it engraved onto MDF, then cut into different sizes.

Slowly but surely, there will be many more rebased. Maybe I’ll even get new minis for this army. I have been eyeing Demigryphs since they first came out.

Since I am a puritan, all my units will be human. I don’t want elves or dwarfs. My old engineers will be the new Cogsmiths. Maybe my Warpriests will be my Runelords if I want a Greywater Fastness army.

After a couple years, I’ve finally completed another warband for Warhammer Underworlds. Just in time for the second season to be released. Averon is the same Averon I entered into the Crystal Brush competition at Adepticon 2019, and ended up making the first cut (yay!).

I continued with the NMM gold scheme with the rest of the unit. Though the rocks on the base ended up a different colour than Averon. Maybe I’ll go back and make him compliant.

I think I will play in a couple Underworlds tournaments at the local GW with the Stormsires to get some mileage, but they are in my first 1000 points of my Cities of Sigmar Freeguild Hallowheart army. Keyword shenanigans can make them part of the warscroll battalion with other wizards, love it.

I absolutely love the look of this Squad of Dakka Jets. The yellow is vibrant, the weathering ties them into the world, and the models are awesome.

These are different from the rest of the army since the painting scheme is Bad Moons instead of Evil Sunz. As much as it goes against everything Orks believe in, Dakka Jets don’t need to move faster in game, apparently.

More resin models. This time, they are from Forgeworld. The Ork Big Trakks. More Evil Sunz Scheme because red is fastest, and it just looks so good.

When building FW, you can’t help but compare them to other companies that release similar resin kits. Due to the poor instructions, this kit definitely falls short from alternative Ork kits. Not to say it doesn’t look good, the FW Big Trakk looks awesome.

I wanted green uniforms for my soldiers, but I got a great bright green. A similar green to Sir Robin the Brave from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. So, that’s how I themed my warband. Shields and capes will have the chicken motif with the checkered background. They look great!

A couple stragglers I happened to remember. Dwarf Lord is done as a center-piece level. It’s still in pewter and the classic pose that makes this model great looking. I wanted to make the squig a different colour than the rest, so it is purple.

A handful of Deffkoptas ready to lay down some missiles. The Painboy on bike is the Orc Chirurgeon on bike from Kromlech. A very cool mini to paint. Tons of detail, complete with the goofiness that usually comes with Orks.
