Two New Gorkanauts

The cloud of Ork vessels hurling towards the ongoing big fight in Ultima Segmentum is not only crammed with Orks, but billions of tonnes of heavy machinery. Among them are Big Mek Dreadnutz's Dread Mob. Among these clanking gods of war are two new machines.

Kommandos in the field reported back to Dreadnutz that an army of Beakies with shiny, yellow armour called the Lamentors had finally received some reinforcements, so they were worth a proppa fight. Of course, Dreadnutz sent all the burnas and lootaz he could spare to attack the Beakies and take whatever they could. Although severely diminished in number, the Orks were able to return with one of the Beakies' beautiful new vehicles. As such, the Repulsork was born!

Look at these worky bitz!

So much dakka! Perhaps still not enough!

The Repulsork has already had a few early victories!

Dreadnutz has also created a Gorkanaut to convey his personal bodyguard of Meganobz into battle. Of course, the Gorkanaut is quite formidable in its own right.


Here's the list I'm going to use at the club tonight in order to try out the new war machines. This list is awful, but I love it. The idea is to make an Orky Imperial Knights list with the hangers-on you'd expect to find alongside a Big Mek's Dreadmob.

ITC Orc Terrain Series 2/2 - Customization

I'm back to finally finish off the series with the Ork buildings from the ITC terrain series.

My ITC Orc battlefields have quickly become my favorite by far. They are really amazing. I especially love the L-shaped buildings and the towers, but the whole line is really gorgeous. In this video, I show you how I added some personal flair to the buildings (even though none is really needed... I just like being difficult). I also show you how I supplemented my terrain with some cool southwestern style hills. At the end, I show off how the paint came together and how the terrain looks with models on it. Check out the video for more and let me know what you'd like to see next in the comments below.

First Quarter 2018 Hobby Progress - Terrain, Star Eagles, and Buggies!

I haven't had a post in a while, so I figured I should do one before the first three months of 2019 is over.

Goldensprue Cup Terrain

The Goldensprue Cup GT was a success again and there was a lot of terrain to be made for that. This included a "Sprue City" battlefield and two Ork battlefields thanks to Frontline Gaming and some help from my buddy, Pat.

Star Eagles

I painted up the three Aggressors at the end of January and the Inceptors at the end of February. I royally screwed up the steps on the Aggressors because I failed to refer to my formula notes before starting work.


I picked up a bunch of buggies at Da Boyz GT in 2017 and I've been champing at the bit to get them done. Here are the results of that work for March.

What's Next?

I thoroughly enjoyed painting these buggies and I think I want to move on to the Gorkanaut model I picked up at the Portal GT last year. I'm looking forward to doing an Apocalypse game at Flipside early this summer, so I'd love to get the rest of the Ork models I have built and painted before them. The only thing I'm wondering is, should I build the Repulsor I have as a second Repulsor or as a third Gorkanaut? Decisions, decisions.
