Right lads – shoot ’em up! The squad of Ork shoota boys is completed by the addition of this Boss Nob. Again, the head is from Spellcrow, the rest of the Ork is Games Workshop.
Now we’re into the middle of winter, and with daylight in extremely short supply, it’s getting increasingly difficult to get any decent pictures of models. Hopefully though this gives you some idea of how he looks – although I acknowledge theat they’re not the best photos ever taken!
Anyway here he is with his boys (as usual click on it for a proper view).
There’s a few rats I still want to finish off – then expect more Orks in the new year. Until then WAAAGH and all that!
More Orks arrive, wielding more badly maintained shootas!
This one got a little extra work to add a GW Ork hat to a Spellcrow head. (I’m also rather pleased with his ‘crazy eyes’!)
When I first started my Ork collection (seven years ago now? Longer?!) I set myself the challenge of never using the same head more than once on any of the infantry models. It’s a subtle little trick but it really adds to the sense of (small ‘c’) chaos and lack of uniformity in an Ork army, and helps to maintain that general aesthetic of unruliness in the face of unifying elements like a common colour scheme. It’s also very practical to achieve, there are just so many Ork heads available between the 40k and AoS ranges, without even starting on all the third-party companies out there.
Until now I’ve managed to stick to it. This gasmask from Spellcrow though – just too cool not to use twice!
