Madboyz, Madboyz, what ya gonna do?

Well, a while ago I painted up some of my madboy wannabes and this past few days saw me polish off the last of them that I still had staring at me on my shelf.  They were quite fun to paint all in all and I probably should give them a MadNob to lead them but for now I’m happy with what I’ve done.

Here’s all of them together in a mad ensemble.

I also smashed out a Battle Wagon for them to ride in

Next up for the Orks will be the Warboss on his Warbike.

And finally there’s one Ork in the pictures above that is not quite all he seems. Here is his backstory.

Da Hovva Ladz is up an About!

So I knuckled down and got this months pledge knocked out super early.  I was NOT a fan of these models when they first arrived as the resin stank and it was pretty brittle.  However, after a bath in soapy water and a good cleanup session watching the XFiles I put them together and they started to grow on me.

On Sunday I sat down for a skype paint session with Gingerwerewolf and got cracking on them.  And yesterday I got the buggers finished.  I still need to sort the bases out but I don’t own the ones I need right now so these flight bases will have to suffice for now.

This means the rest of the month is mine to paint what I want and I will probably get mty Keeper of Secrets worked on now that I’ve cleared a little of my Orks.  Or maybe I’ll finish off the rest of the Mad Boyz Mob….

Da Hovva Bovva Boyz

A short while ago I got involved in a kickstarter for some Jetbike style minis. It was pretty cheap and I thought why not. After a customary wait they finally arrived and I will be integrating them into my Bloodaxes as my Ork Bikers. Kind of outcast bikers as a) they’re using nicked imperial (probably) hover tech and b) the Nob in charge allows Grotz in his squad (they’re the only ones that know how to refuel the engines and reload the gunz). They hire themselves out to anyone that wants stuff that goes really quick and lets off a ton of dakka in the direction of the enemy.

I give you Kaptin Dungbreff and his Hovva Bovva Boyz.

One Careless Owner. High Milage. Probably not insured.

So I’ve been pretty prolific this month and smashed out a Rhino I got from a friend a fewyears ago.  This particular Rhino conversion dates back to 2nd edition when my friend actually made it so it’s been ~ 15 years under-coated before I finally got around to painting it.  This is a disgrace actually as painting this Trukk after undercoat was about 2h…

Next up….another one!

Best. Name. Ever.

I totally forgot to post this lovely lady (I presume, it’s Slaaneshi so anything goes) that I painted up as my Slaanesh Lord.

I was inspired by two things.  Firstly just how amazingly 80s her hair is and secondly by her Combat Card from the 80s.

I give you Gerda Von Evilstein.


So far she has managed to get killed by a pack of Skellies for no kills herself but she was just getting to know the game and will come out firing on all cylinders in her next match.

They came….FROM THE 80’s!

So I finally got around to stripping, pinning, gluing, green-stuffing and painting my original Slaanesh Fiends.  I’m rather pleased with how they turned out even if they have been somewhat underwhelming on the board.  Still, it’s 300pts added to my Age of Sigmar list and I’ve met my monthly painting challenge once again \m/

There’s a Slaanesh Sorcerer that I did at the same time but his trousers have all gone wrong so he needs a little more work before I can show him off.

Next month…maybe a Keeper of Secrets…maybe some Orks…

Keep on Trukkin

The best thing about Orks is the BROADSWORD sheer amount of resources you have at your disposal to make almost anything you want.  Recently I’ve been a bit tired but when it comes to building things for my Greenskins…jag orkar!

So it was with great delight that I took a peek into my bits box and found an old school smashed up Rhino Chassis.  After a little rummage I decided that I would make it into a Trukk.  The XFiles got slapped on the telly and here we are.

Behold the work of a sleepy Mekk!

It’s not quite finished but I thought I’d throw this up here as a WiP shot.
