Following on from my other post on variant Ork army lists and a discussion on the official Epic Armageddon Forums I have thought of another concept for an Ork Army, a Lootas army containing a wealth of captured and converted Imperial equipment.
As most people who play Epic Armageddon are aware, once an army list is finalised nothing can be added to it, so when new models, such as the new Forgeworld Bommers, are released they can not be used in the current army lists…
One thing Jervis mentioned in the latest White Dwarf got me thinking, especially with the release of the Ork Bommers from Forgeworld.
As most people who play Epic Armageddon are aware, once an army list is finalised nothing can be added to it, so when new models, such as the Bommers, are released they can not be used in the current army lists. Either you use the “counts as” rule or create your own rules.
In the White Dwarf article, Jervis talks about having quite a few army lists (aka Hordes of the Things or DBM).
It occurred to me that you could have quite a few variant Ork lists, potentially at least twenty different lists!
Therefore I am working on a Ork Airfield Defence Force which will include the new Forgeworld Ork Bommers.
I do like the Big Gunz models that have been produced for the Orks, I don’t like the lists that all the Big Gunz have to be the same (though tactically I know that is better). I already have a Kannon so was pleasantly surprised when my mother in law for my birthday gave me a Zapp Gun.
It was easy to put together, though no instructions where to put the extra bitz, so they could be in the right place, more likely they are in the wrong place…
It comes with two krew, but in reality you need more than two as they die very easily at which point the gun becomes useless.
I have already three extra krew which I got sometime ago, but never finished painting.
Two are gun krew whilst the model on the left is from the Skorcha model.
They are undercoated white, painted Goblin Green so far and equipment has been painted black ready for a drybrush of Boltgun Metal.
Each Kopta has been converted sightly, though the pilot of each one has been heavily converted…
As you may have read in a previous entry you will realise that I have built and converted two new Deth Koptas.
This model has two four blade rotars, a couple of epic scale Pulsa Rokkits added as bombs, I also added some cables and a few other bitz.
This model is similar, but uses the three blade rotars.
The crew have been more heavily converted using the plastic components from the Ork Boyz sprue. One difference when making the crew was to glue in the joystick first, in my first Deth Kopta I waited until the model was finished which was a real headache to glue into position.
I have glued them onto Warmaster bases to make painting them easier.
