More photos are coming! My friend Rory took the picture at the top, and I changed the levels in Photoshop. There are tons of good shots on the way.

Here’s an Ork list I have been playing around with, a variant on my classic list with a few bits inspired by Fluger, such as the Lobbas. The battlewagon with Nobs and both my HQs is kind of too many eggs in one basket, so I need to figure that out. All input is welcome.

    Not bad! Very similar to the list Sherbert runs (that won the second TSHFT BTW). Love the models, your painting is fabtabulous! ::jealous::

  2. Great looking stuff.

    My opinions of Ork lists are well-enough documented that I won’t bother… 😉

    Particular note, I think, for the bases fitting so neatly onto the board you’ve put them on. Always a great touch, if done well.

    Oh, and that AoBR Warboss…Space Hulk base??

      Thanks! I appreciate the comments and compliment.

      I think the Ork book is just fine myself but we don’t need to debate it. The only books I consider weak are Necrons, Daemons, Daemonhunters, and Dark Angels.

      Most of my armies are based in the wilderness style of my board, although my Elect of Tzeentch and Daemons are all Cityfight, albeit with brown base edges. I am converting my actual Space Wolves over to cityfight also.

      That unconverted AOBR boss is probably going to go on my Stompa gantries, it was just textured plasticard on a cut up credit card.

      • Can’t wait to see the finished Stompa(s?) lol

        How’s things, you’ve not posted in a while?

        • chaosgerbil says:

          Sorry I will try and get something up soon. I still don’t have access to the quality pics that my friend took, and typing up two battle reports from the battle photos seemed daunting. I think at this point I will do very quick and dirty battle reports with a few highlight photos, and then get back to photographing models myself.

          My Stompa is in progress, I painted it up all rusty and it is awaiting detailing. It needs more guns and I have to finish the head. After that I will start adding Orks and Grots to the gantries.

    Gosh, really liking the oldskool Snotlings you’ve pimped the Shokk Attak gun with. It’s a nice tough. And seeing those oldskool plastic Warriors makes my heart sing.

    • chaosgerbil says:

      Hey, thanks a lot. One of my neglected projects is a Battlewagon made from a toy bus, filled with Snotlings lining up for the SHokk attack at the front. I plan to model the insides of the bus with a sign that says “Snaks” with an arrow pointing to the Shokk attack’s loading tube hatch.

      Thanks for stopping by! I plan to put up a lot more pictures in the coming months.

    I really like the way you painted the ork skin can i ask how u achieved this look?

    • chaosgerbil says:

      Either Dark angels green or orkhide shade as a base… then goblin green (sometimes camo green) gets painted on all the raised areas. I will usually then add some highlights while the midtone is still wet, mixing in either bleached bone, rotting flesh, scorpions green, or goblin grreen + white. Oftentimes I will do some blending at this stage. Next comes a thraka green wash, and after this is applied I will remove some of the wash from the highlight areas with either a paper towel, dry brush, or finger. Characters usually get an extra highlight stp to finish.
