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.

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!

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.

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.
