Hello and welcome!
After registering last week, I'm going to share my main army building project with you - my green horde.
When I first started playing 40K, I chose the Eldar but I never really got satisfied with them. It was not the playstyle I disliked, but I did not find a colour-scheme I liked. After I had removed the paint for the 4th time and wanted to start repainting them for the 5th time, I did 2-3 games against the Orks...and was totally fascinated from the green horde. The strange weapons with their rules that either makes your opponent or yourself cry (I think, this is the only way, the SAG works
), the funny models...summing up: I sold my 2500 points of unpainted Eldar and started Orks.
In the meantime, I have approximately 3000 points of Orks here at home and they are getting more and more. I will add more and more pictures during the next days....
When I first thought about how to paint my orks, I stumbled over the pictures of the Bad Moons. I liked the yellow - a colour I did not ever tried before during my years playing Warhammer Fantasy or Lord of the Rings. But what I did not like was the fact, that the armour and every yellow part was so shiny and clean - in my eyes that does not fit the "Ork-Style". So I tried to make the models look more rust and dirty. I hope you like it.
Just to get an overview - this was the army I played on the last tournament - became 23rd of 50 participants with 0:20 (Marines with 3 LR and 2x5 Terminators), 12:8 (SW/IA) and 18:2 (CSM)
