Default Intro

Hi Everyone,

New member on the site, just sayin hello from California USA! A bit about me...

I played some Fantasy back on the mid-90's with a friend but never really got too into it.. mostly because my friend liked to clear off the table violently when losing... I've always liked to paint though and stuck to that mostly then.

I'm a grown up now and have a step son who's 16 that I've strong armed into painting and playing with me recently. We got an AoBR, some extra marines and orks and have just started in on some 1000 point games at home. He's already looking to start CSM though. Just built a new 6x4 table that we're pretty happy with too! Just playing home games currently.

I play Ultramarines and he plays the Orks, though we both paint the Orks. Here's my latest, my first conversion work using an AoBR Nob, a Killa Kan arm, a non-GW banner and some green stuff for that Tetsuo from Akira look. Not sure who'd let me field that as a power klaw or not, but my house rules say allowed (with a vengeance).

Very nice stuff there! Welcome to Heresy Online, hopefully you find some stuff you like around the place.

As for that power claw I would most certainly allow you to use it, its an Ork ffs, they be crazy.

Be nice to see some more of your stuff, you've mos def got some skill with the paint brush!

Welcome to the boards. That is definitely an impressive introduction. Now that you've whetted our appetites, lets see some more of those orks.

Hello and welcome to Heresy Online.

As the others said, the ork looks great. Feel free to post some more of your painting up in the Modelling and Painting section.

Enjoy your stay

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome and comments on my work! I'm planning on digging out my little home-built light box and tripod to take some more pictures of my armies and you'll definitely be seeing me in the Modeling and Painting section... I've already seen lots of great work there while I was lurking...
