It appears that I have finally rekindled my urge to paint(after nearly 9 months of meh!), and in a moment of madness I picked out some of my Epic Orks, my only unpainted Epic army(due to their being a reasonably large amount of them!)
Being 6mm I hoped the ease of painting them would help me get back into painting, plus being Orks I can use more interesting colours and don't have to consider an overly uniform look.
I have decided to represent all the traditional Ork clans in my army so I started on the largest of my planned clans the Goffs:
I then moved on to the Death Skulls clan which is only one mob of infantry with some Big Gunz - using the old Lootas models which seemed apt:
For Blood Axes I used the few Kommandos I have:
Which leaves the Bad Moons (to which I have allocated a similar amount of troops as the Goffs, less the Stormboyz and Stomperz), the Evil Sunz(Speed Freeks) which I have about 45 vehicles to paint up and the Snakebites which are a larger force than the Death Skulls plus a few Squiggoths, so I'm about half way through and have made a small start on two of the remaining clans:
While the entire force is not yet complete, I now have a decent enough Ork army to use whilst I finish off the rest. I am aiming for around 6000pts in total which matches my other armies:
And the Imperial Guard:
And whilst waiting for these to dry I have been pottering away at some 15mm fantasy which will be the subject of my next post.
