Ork Trukk, undercoated and drybrushed

I have done more work done on my Ork Trukk.

Here is a picture of the Trukk now undercoated.

As you can see I also added a spare tyre. The front of the back section which normally is at an angle has been glued in vertically, this will make it look “slightly” different to the other Trukk.

The frontal armour plate was undercoated white as it will be painted red.

The whole model was then drybrushed with Tin Bitz and Boltgun Metal.

This can be somewhat messy and as you can see I will need to go over the tyres again.

This shot shows the spanner and the red frontal armour plate.

Feral Ork Boar Rider

As you may recall from a previous posting I am in the process of making some Feral Ork Boar Boyz using parts from the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Orc Warriors and the 40K Ork Boyz sprues.

Here is a picture of the newly constructed model.

I may add some reins and add a few other features.

I have avoided using the regular rectangular base and opted for the 40mm round base.

Forgeworld Ork Gunwagon Conversions

Even though I had stuck all my Forgeworld Ork Gunwagons together and undercoated them, I have now decided that I want to use some of the excellent weapons on some Squiggoths!

I managed to get a Kannon and a Lobba off the models (well I did manage to “break” another Lobba, but glued it back into position).

With the two empty Gunwagons, with one I have added a buggy gunner and the other is going to get a Pulsa Rokkitt.

Cheap Ork Boar Boyz

…or how to save a little bit of money…

With the release of the Warhammer 40K 2004 Annual the final version of the Ork feral list is now available.

I quite like the idea of Boar Boyz I certainly use them in my Epic Ork army, but have always been a little wary of the price of the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Orc Boar Riders which are £6 each!

Having glanced around the GW online store I have come up with a potential (and cheaper) solution.

Using the Orc Command Sprue (from the Orc Boyz Regiment boxed set) you do in fact get a Boar rider. It only costs £3 and you get an additional two Orcs.

Ork Boar Boyz

It would seem that you get three Orc bodies and four legs, however if you take a closer look at the top right you can see that the legs are slightly different!

These are the Boar Rider legs. If you have the Orc Battalion Box, you will notice you get a Orc Warlord on a Boar these are the components.

A plastic boar costs £1 for the body and 50 pence for the head, total cost is £4.50 and you get an additional two Orcs.

As the plastic components with the 40K Ork Boyz are pretty similar and you get loads of extra arms with 40K weapons to convert the Orc Boyz.

The command sprue also comes with a range of extra bitz as well including a standard, a shield and a pair of drums – perfect for any feral Ork army.

It is my intention however to use the 40mm round slottabases rather than the WHFB cavalry bases which come with the boars.

Basing the Killa Kan

I have finished the base on one of my Killa Kans and with a virtually done paintjob it is ready to play a game with.

The base is done with a few bits of gravel from the garden, GW sand and then painted Codex Grey before being drybrushed with lighter shades of grey and then white.

The main body of the Killa Kan is black, drybrushed with Tin Bitz and Boltgun Metal.

I still have to do some of the detailing but I am quite happy with it at the moment.

I am not sure whether I should paint the missiles yet and what colour!

You find more information on the Killa Kan on the workbench section of the iFelix website.
