Default Kaptain Dakka Skraga's Freebooterz Vs Klan Kamikarzi (Pics 10th July, VV)

Kaptain Dakka Skraga Vs Klan Kamikarzi.

This thread is a big old Greenskin WIP for Tinkerbell and myself to show the building of our repsctive Waaaarghs. ( It also doubles as my Admin Challange WIP._

Tinkerbell and I have been on at each other to start a 40k and WHF army respectivly for a while now.

Tink chose to do Orks and I started getting misty-eyed remembering my old Kult of Speed army whilst talking to her about them.
But it would be a bit silly to do two Ork armies in one house so after a bit of further thought I decided to do the greenskins in WHF.


So blowing the cobwebs out of my brainpan I spent a whole day at work trying to think of a strong theme for my army. (I wonder how many books have the text upside down..)

The kernal of an idea started when I thought that Orc Boys with white headbands with a red spot on and white sheilds with the sunz center painted red would look rather cool.

So Klan Kamikarzi was born, quickly Samuri Black Orcs (and all other heavily armoured characters), Ninja Night Goblins and Coolie Hat wearing peasant style Goblins joined the original thought.

Mork knows what I am going to do with Savage Orcs and Forest Goblins but that will have to come along later. ( Although suggestions would be welcome.)

So as soon as I got paid I was off to GW to buy the £50 box set and a box of Gobbos.

With the Admin Challange starting all was well timed.

I have started to carve notches in the Ork boys heads to put the headbands on and will post up some pictures soon as they are ready for paint.


And now goodbye from me and hello from her..............................

Default Kaptain Dakka Skraga's Freebooterz.

As Vash explained in the starting post we are doing a joint Ork WIP.

I wanted to do Orks in 40k because they are about as different as one can get from my High Elves.

I was walking through town and the the idea of a pirate theme hit me.
I thought I was being very original but when I turned to Vash an mentioned it he got all excited and said he loved the old Freebooterz and it would be a great chance for me to get into the converting side of the hobby.

When we got home he dissapeared into the spare room and re-emerged triumphantly clutching a 2nd edition codex with a few pics of the old freebooterz minis.

With the recent Pirates of the Caribbean films in mind I started to try to find Orky Glyphs that would make a good name for my Warboss.
Using Vash's 40k Ork Glyph Dictionary. I found the ones that sounded most like Captian Jack Sparrow and Kaptain Dakka Skraga is the closest fit.

I have bought a Box of the new Ork boyz, a blister of 4 Grots and a box of Ogre Kingdoms Gnobblers to convert into more Grots.

Now Im off to clean up all those Grots....................

NNOoooo not more gnobblers into grots. They do make fantasy gobbos that make great grots with little effort. Well Tinkerbell if you can turn them into convincing grots then your better than the rest.

For you pirate orks aobut half way down the page is a way to make pirate hats out of greenstuff http://www.coolminiornot.com/go.php/...clephp/aid/354?
and I had to show you my friends ork pirate that he made mostly out of greenstuff.

Vash.

Interesting idea for an orc army should be a lot of fun. You could also do some looted orc stuff. Take dwarf cannons and turn the inside to the outside and you have mechanical gears showing for your orc cannon or dwarf bolt thrower as your looted spear chukka. You could also use the goblin hewer but put an orc head on it. Skaven throwing stars and knives for the gobbos or equipment from the skaven assassins.

Either way I'm sure I'll have other useless input for both of these projects.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

Pretty good ideas, especially Klan Kamikarzi. Not quite sure if this would help, but here are some ideas.

Tinkerbell: visit this thread
http://warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116038
He does an exceptionally well made freebootaz army, when he is not working on the Death orks of Kreig. He has a pretty good tutorial on how to do the tricorn hats on page 6.

Vash: You could perhaps do a Buddhist monk or a shrine priest/priestess for the forest goblins. I'm thinking of kappas for the savage orcs, or perhaps even Kabuki style face paint for the orcs.

Hope this helps.

Edit: added page number for the tutorial.

Oooh this is going to be a cool thread.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Default Vash's Admin Challange installment 1.

Thanks for all the ideas and interest guys.

Not much to show so far Im afraid but a good start has been made on my first unit.

I have GSed all the head gear on a Orc Boys unit (20) so that all I have to do now is put them together pretty much as the box kit. (Bar a few weapon conversions, only three types of choppa in the box was a bit to samey for me.)

Rank D


......D1......D2.....D3.....D4.....D5

I probably be using be using this unit as Big Uns which should get the pointage going a bit.

I will do individual Boy pics after they have been painted for a closer look.
