The final hours of Orktober are ticking away and it’s time for me to down my brushes, or at least paint something that isn’t green for a change. I wasn’t sure if I would get these three finished in time but the impending deadline inspired me to make one final effort, faint heart having never won fair Ork maiden and all that.
I couldn’t resist painting up this brutal looking git, an Ork who’s clearly been on the receiving end of many a battering over the years but can still give as good as he gets with that massive axe.
Then we have this mean individual, kitbashed with spares from the Flash Gits kit. As it happens I intended to paint some Flash Gits this month (and various other things as well) but never got around to it – their time will come however…
Lastly this Nob was inspired by my co-conspirator and fellow Waaagh-lord IRO who painted a similar looking Ork earlier in the month. Is he a sneaky Blood Axe sent to infiltrate my collection on behalf of my rival, or is he just an Ork who knows fashion when he sees it and has copied the iconic look sported by IRO’s miniature?
And speaking of IRO I’d like to end by giving him a massive shout-out for being a fantastic sport and a great rival in our month-long Ork painting extravaganza. For those who’re only just encountering this for the first time blogger, kitbasher and Ork enthusiast extraordinaire IRO and myself have been spending the whole of this month painting as many greenskins as we could manage. IRO has produced some truly amazing pieces so do go and check out his work if you’re not already familiar with it. For myself this brings my total number of Orcs painted this month to 37 (a quite ridiculous number of models to paint in a month, especially by my standards). I think that deserves a group shot don’t you? I’ll try to get a round-up posted in the next few days.
