Default Honkas Circus

Ok i have decided to write a log of the creation of my circus orks. I have already kinda started by painting up a few (4) normal orks to look like clowns here are 2 that I’m quite proud of. The other 2 are at my bros house so they will have to wait for another time.




Sorry about the poor quality i just couldn’t get the light right


Ive also started work on ring master “Honka” himself however i hit a couple of snags with him which leads me to a couple of top tips.


1. Cheap glue is not your friend. For the sake of a couple of quid by the better ones or you could end up sitting for half an hour waiting to dry. And it will most likely not end up where you want it.



2.If you buy a new modelling knife remember to buy plasters as well as you will most likely need them.

3. DONT RUB YOUR EYES WHEN GLUING. This applies also when painting.


But anyway here is how “Honka” looks at the moment he is missing a power claw and his ring master cane is crooked. Also i need to buy some green stuff to finish key parts of him like his hat and fill the gaps on his arm.






I was also planning on giving him a big fake moustache like the ring masters usually have


so theres a start hopefully i will be updating soon if you have any suggestions or questions i would love to hear them.

Now when I said "disturbed and humourous", I wasn't expecting this!

Nice clown hat mate. And I agree - Honka needs a moustache. Or at the very least, a grot disguised as a moustache.

"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."

"But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED."

"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

Good progress on ringmaster Honka. Are those Troll arms?

Do you want me to upload shots of your other 2 boys or would you rather wait for them to all be together and take a group shot?

Comedy armies are great - as long as they are well done. Your concept and execution of the models is great - truely evil clowns.

Of course, you need a battlewagon that looks like the classic clown car - complete with doors falling off. Maybe even a squiggoth cleverly disguised as an elephant.............

This may seem Old School to some but would it better to think of the moustache as a couple or hair squigs on his upper lip.

You could also create rules for the battlewagon that means it spawns a seemingly unending supply of Circus Orks.

Looking forward to seeing the moustacheod Honka, keep up the good work

Maybe for that elephant the trunk could be made from the Shok attack gun snotling hose.
