Warhammer 40K: Ork Lootas WIP

Just a quick post with a couple of work in progress shots, all the block colours have been done on the Lootas (or heavy weapon Orks depending on the edition) and the Dreadnought has been built as base coated.

Lootas being painted to match the original Rogue Trader paint scheme of the unit I already have

I always remember the cardboard Ork dreadnought you got in the 2nd edition boxed game but I never owned the metal version, that is until one impulse eBay purchase

Warhammer 40k: Green Skin Expansion

More progress on the Ork army and some new acquisitions to report on today.

First up the last of the Orks from the Bring and Buy have now been polished up and finished off:

Kommandos - Either to run as a separate unit or to bulk out the unit to ten

Some Gretchin from the 2nd Edition boxed game along with a Runtherd, ideally I'd have about 20 more of these to make them effective but these will do for now  

Next up we have a unit of Nobs on Warbikes which I picked up from eBay, the paint job on these is what caught my eye and they only needed a little TLC (some repairs and some arms removed that where at very strange angles) and then new bases sorting for them:

 Probably the most eye catching unit in the army, let's just hope they are as good on the battlefield

Now for the new buys which will be joining the army.

Heavy weapon Orks which will be joining the Deffskulls as Lootas 

A 2nd Edition Dreadnought which was an impluse buy from eBay (and was put together this morning) along with the Looted Wagon from a few posts ago, now stripped down ready for re-assembly

I'm hoping to get the Deffskulls and Dreadnought sprayed up tonight so I can get cracking on them while the Looted Wagon is going to take a little longer.

Warhammer 40k - Orky Progress

It's been a little longer than planned for this update (thanks again Photobucket) however I have not been idol, most of the Ork force is now finished with only two units to finish off then I'll take a look and the Nob Bikes and the Looted Tank.
Again just to reiterate this army was bought painted and it was the old school paint scheme that sold them to me (and the price too, great bring and buy find) so all I wanted to do was clean them up, they were covered in dust, then just give the paint jobs a little TLC before varnishing them up.  Now the TLC ranged from fixing the various chips in the paint to, in some cases, quite a bit of re-painting but if I've done a decent job you shouldn't notice this.  I also acquired another Nob in Power Armour to bring the squad up to five and it was a lot of fun painting him up in the old style.

Sorry for the quality of some of the photos, the natural lighting has been terrible lately being very hazy but I didn't want to wait any longer to get the photos done and up.

Back in working order

Job done, all images on the blog are now back up and view-able.  It's actually been a lot of fun looking through the old images and seeing the projects as they progressed as well as seeing the ones I haven't started yet (yelp).
I'll have a post going up soon with the progress on my Ork army which is now nearly completed.

Photobucket Blues

As many of you are now aware Photobucket has put a pay wall up for 3rd party image sharing which has rendered most of my early posts without images.  I have now retrieved all my images and will slowly repopulate the posts day by day, the first post having been done.
On the up side it has been quite nice looking through those early posts and pictures.
