Default Starting some Space Orks

Well, I had so much fun painting up a Crimson Fists army this fall and winter, that I'm starting on what orks that I do have. This is the warband from the AoBR set. I intend on picking up a Battle Wagon and Battleforce boxset for the first major expansion. My goal is to paint up a solid 1k list so that I can host some games here at the house, not to mention the orks are killer miniatures. Alright, here we go again. I'm essentially painting up a Snagrod Waaagh to have as a consistent evil army to fight with my crimson fists marines. If anyone has any ideas throw them this way. As I begin to finish these miniatures I will update the pictures (which will be better pictures as these miniatures are finished). Any c&c are welcomed and thanked in advance.

Looks like you are ripping through them and great work so far. Plenty still to do though.
I know how you feel, I have hundreds of models still to paint.

I would give the orks some crimson fist trophies to show your rival armies either that or paint the orks similar to how you painted your crimson fist.

Well, Spring and Summer were busy, but not as productive as I'd wished for the table top armies. Although it's been awhile and I went in a different direction with my Orks than previously divined. I decided to bulk up the units that I had and get some variety on the table in terms of leadership and heavy support. So here are the Orks that I promised to post pics of sometime ago. Let me know how you think their coming along. I, like most, had the Black Reach minis and decided to build that into a fun playable 1k list. You can see that I have added several units and increased the two units of boyz to 30 each. I'm painting up my unit of Nobs with a Painboy, a Mek w/ KFF and another unit of Lootas. I may go with a couple units of Kans next. But we'll see according to money etc. I'll start updating my Space Marines log too since I'm trying to work out a competitive SM lists for this winter and spring. Thanks again and in advance for checking my painting out. If you like it, don't forget to donate some rep. Keep checking back for updates too.



This picture is of my 750 point list as it stands with one victory over Chaos Space Marines.















So for the color scheme I'm going with a desert camo on the pants of nobz and elites with a red accent.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I'll have some more pictures posted soon of a couple of Ork characters. Damn the greenskins are fun to romp and roll wiff'!
