Variant Ork Army Lists

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.

Ork Bommer looking better…

I tried something else…

Well after much thinking, I decided to stick with the orange, but this time lay it on thick!

Ork Bommer

It has covered better and now looks like battered panels and the paint has cracked and flaked off.

I need to do some highlighting and some more weathering, but I am now more pleased with this than the previous attempt!

it is somewhat bright, but I may vary the share across different panels.

You find the previous history of my Ork Fighter Bommer on the workbench section of the iFelix website.

Trying to ensure that the panels look battered…

You find the previous history of my Ork Fighter Bommer on the workbench section of the main website.

One effect I wanted was to ensure that the fighter looked like it was cobbled together from bits and pieces and then painted orange. I also wanted to have some “new” pieces that looked like they were from captured Imperial vehicles.

However first I needed to do the edges, and these were painted roughly in black.

These will then be drybrushed with Boltgun Metal and Chainmail to give a rough knocked about a bit look. The panels will then be painted orange (though some will be painted Cadian green as though they were taken from destroyed Imperial tanks).
