The first two Stealthsuits complete. The camo is white, grey, and blue for the snow. The actual armour is a purple/grey scheme with some bits picked out in blue or red for the reference to the og shiny armour colours. I’d like to think this alternate armour is like a special forces colour scheme.

Also, as per the natural order, I have both the active camo and armour colours showing on the model. Like they’re in the middle of turn their stealth on.

Finally starting to get started on these guys. Of course, I have a soft spot for the lowly humans in almost every game system. Bonus points if they are religious zealots and have access to fire or cool armour. I am not sure about the fire yet, but there are warrior priests and dudes in cool armour. Not these soldiers though.

These are the first stands of my Men-at-Arms. I had made the bases using clay or plasticard blocks, then I casted them in resin. I kept the masters, so the bases you see these buys on are the copies. It’s also a theme. I tried to make it look like a brick promenade they are marching/charging down. I wanted some variety, so I added some dirt patched and damage. The abrupt stop on the one side is actually going to be a water feature that my cavalry will be galloping through.

The scheme is inspired from the Knights of the Blazing Sun in Warhammer Fantasy, or bees.

Super excited to get my first game in.

Starting off this army expansion with a few different units. A squad of Fire Warriors with a couple support turrets, Sniper drones, and some weapons.

Like last time, all the purple and blue sections of the scheme have been gone over with a gloss coat. The contrast between the shiny and matte areas helps to make the different materials pop.

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.
