Finishing off this commission with Commander Shadowsun and a Cadre Fireblade.

Shadowsun follows the army colour scheme, activating her camouflage. The Fireblade looks very leader-like.

These are the rest of the drones in the commission. A couple drones for the Ghostkeel, a couple shield drones for Commander Shadowsun, and a bunch of other mostly shield drones. All that’s left is Commander Shadowsun and a Fireblade.

Brand new to me, Fire Warrior Breachers. A 9-man unit and a couple Hammerhead turrets. I’m almost done a trio of Rail Rifle Pathfinders, then I might do the Fireblade or Commander Shadowsun.

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.

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.
