Ork Warboss

Here’s the Ork Warboss from the Assault on Black Reach boxed set.

There are very few parts and the clip nature of the kit means it went together very easily.

This is how GW painted their Warboss.

Quite sure that I can’t get close to that quality of painting.

Next stage will be an undercoat, pretty sure if I will go with my traditional black for Orks.

From the GW site:

Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka is a mighty prophet of the Waaagh!, capable of rousing entire planetary populations of Orks into a frenzy of conquest and bloodshed. He is the single most influential Ork in the galaxy, and billions of greenskins march to war in his name.

This is my model of Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka.

However I find hims somewhat cheesy, as the 2+ save means that it is very difficult to get rid of him in a game.

Though I do like the model, which is why he gets used.

Ork Kommando Warboss

I have added materials from the urban basing kit to my Ork Kommandos.
I didn’t use any of the resin pieces, but used the large and small slate. I think I will add some barbed wire as well.

I initially decided to paint their backpacks separately, so thought of how I would need to mount them. After much thought (and a fair bit of procrastination) I decided against that idea and stuck the backpacks on.

Here is the Kommando Nob (Boss)’s backpack complete with Grot

I have based my other Ork bosses on 40mm bases, so I might at some point rebase him, but for the moment he can stay on his smaller base (well he is an infiltrator).

Next stage will be the undercoat.
