Morker Repaints

Throughout 2021, I've been really stepping up the repaint work on the Morker side of my army. My Orks army has been a weird mix of colors that I originally did for unit designation, however the army didn't look very cohesive on the battlefield. There are better ways to do unit designation while maintaining a nice scheme, so I decided to make this big push to get everything repainted in a cohesive scheme and to my current skill level.

Since most of the models already had yellow as one of their colors, the steps usually included:

  • Re-color the red or orange as blue
  • Add 2 highlights to the yellow
  • Add 1 highlight to the green skin
  • Reikland Flesh Shade on models that had originally been washed with a bad mix of craft paints
  • Replace old basing style with new
  • Re-ring the bases
  • Clear coat

I usually run these models as Deathskulls since my army's warlord uses Mad Doc Grotsnick's rules for Dok Drillteef. Also, the theme of the Deathskulls make sense for the lore of the army.

I don't have a full army shot as of yet. I'll do that later this year, perhaps around the winter holidays. I still need to run repaints on the Gorker side of the army.

Ork Boyz Rehab

So I got a little me-time in tonight hobby-wise.  These were the first two Boyz squads I painted when I started playing the game in 2010.  I'd already re-done their shirts, but their metal parts and skin have always bothered me. Their barrels weren't even drilled out! I also see myself running more 'Ard Boyz in the future, so I added some 'eavy armor to the Old Boyz squad, then drilled their barrels out. As you can see, my 'Ard Boyz have all the armor plates you'd expect on them, but look at how clean the armor is.  Hardly a spot of rust!  I painted over the original 'Ard Boyz metal plates with brown and did another boltgun drybrush on them to create more of a rusted effect than just the bright boltgun-over-black that they were originally. Then, I went through and did a highlight of my high-green mixture on all 62 Boyz.  They look much more vibrant now, though I don't think that really communicates through in the pictures as much as

More Diggaz Infantry

The humans of Ghorok have expanded beyond that world since the coming of the Cicatrix Maledictum. Survival on the Ork worlds under the big, green thumb of Waagh! Drillteef is difficult for humanity, but not impossible.

Da Supersonik Gitdroppa, Looted Thunderhawk Transporter

This was a major stage of the Orks repaint project as it included a great deal of refactoring and rebuilding. I want to thank my buddy, Colin , for the extra Thunderhawk parts that helped make this a reality.  Please see below the finished product photos for the in-progress shots. Game stats: Da Supersonik Gitdroppa should have the same stats as a Thunderhawk Transporter with the following exceptions: Change Da Supersonik Gitdroppa's Weapon Skill to 4+ and its Ballistic Skill to 5+ Instead of the usual armaments, Da Supersonik Gitdroppa is armed with: 4 twin big shootas,  1 big shoota,  1 twin supa shoota,  1 supa kannon. Da Supersonik Gitdroppa's twin big shootas are armed by Gretchin and, as such, are fired at 4+ Ballistic Skill Instead of the usual carrying capacity, Da Supersonik Gitdroppa can carry either Two trukks One battlewagon or bonebreaka Two looted rhinos Two munitorum containers If the Supersonik Gitdroppa is carrying munitorum containers, each container can carry
