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.

Fighting Withdrawal

New Warhammer 40K battle report added to website…

This was an interesting game. Simon had just finished his 40K scale Forgeworld Valkyrie and wanted to use it in a game. Knowing his “luck” I expected that the Valkyrie would fly in and one of my grots would take a shot and shoot it down… at which point Simon would be slightly annoyed!

Therefore I created this scenario which has forty Imperial Guard, with Heavy Weapons, a Tarantula Sentry Gun but no tanks. They would be dug into one end of the table and their objective was to get at least twenty troops off the table.

They would be taken off table by a flight of Valkyries that would fly in, strafe the Orks before landing, allowing the Imperial Guard to embark and fly off.

My Orks job to stop all this!

See the report.

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.

Ork Objectives

Still looking for ideas…

Out there quite a few people are building objectives for games of Epic Armageddon, a good example of this is the Dropship website.

I have decided to make some Ork objectives, so far I have started on a watchtower and am aiming to make a few more such as a crashed spaceship, a large Krooz Missile, a junk heap, and a Gargant (half-made or semi-destroyed – is there a difference).

Warhammer 40000 Annual

Well I needed the Feral Ork rules…

Anyone who checks out my workbench, will realise that I am making up some Feral Orks.

However the main rules, Codex Orks do not contain the rules, originally published in White Dwarf, the Feral Ork rules (now revised) have been published in the Warhammer 40K Annual 2004.

It is nicely put together, but is as you expect it’s just a re-print of the WD articles, but they have been revised…

Battle Report

Well it would have been if the camera battery hadn’t failed

I was hoping to bring you a photographic battle report between Orks and Imperial Guard, however it seems that my digital camera has a faulty battery and thus “failed”.

You can see some of the pictures I took here.

The game went really well (for the Orks) but it was close. We played the Take and Hold scenario and after six turns a single grot and a few Orks held the objective.

It was the first opportunity for my Ork Grot Bomb Launcha on the battlefield and it failed miserably “bouncing” off the frontal armour plate of an Imperial Chimera.

My opponent put on his Medusa which was rather nasty…
