Goff Orks on the move!

Been a while since our last meeting explorer ... but as the wintry nights begin to get lighter I have been painting up more of my 2nd Edition Orks. You may even have seen an early progress image in a previous post. All of these orks have had some form of  historical yet innocent damage in there lifetime. Normally this could be an issue but these monopose Goffs are in need of a little bit of character. Alas due to it being a bit grim outside I am without decent natural light so these images may not be the best. (Note to self to update with better photos).

"It's still cold up ere!"

This here is Hobstob, he lost his normal bolt pistol arm (it's probably in my bits box) so it was replaced with a normal ork arm and bolt pistol from the old sprue you used to be able to get.

An Ork renegade to keep us going.

It's been a quiet month or so from a hobby point of view, build up to Christmas and other activities have left little time to paint up the remaining Heroquest models or to add to my Ork horde or even get a game in that I can show here.

What I will do is just spotlight this fine model that caught my eye after looking at White dwarf 112.

An Ork Renegade from the Rogue Trader era, armed with a power fist and chainsword. For an ork he is quite conventional and serious looking. Hopefully one day I might find one to purchase, but in the meantime I'll try and get some more blog posts up on here.

Clad in plate of steel, the Chaos Warriors (Heroquest)

I've been thinking quite a bit lately about something we can all relate to, something that is unquestionably, inescapably… Chaos!

I am referring, of course, to our great national pastime - merciless combat. Or so it had been. That's right, wasteland dwellers. Before we were devastated by heroic deeds, each lair had its OWN professional combat team. Imagine, a perfect, rain soaked day. The sun is enveloped by darkness and misery. And on the horizon, they appear, like knights of yore, armed with axes of hate and malice.

"Erm, guys the camera is this way!"

Their name? The Chaos Warriors. Their purpose? To make you, dear reader, revel in the joys of savagery and blood, if only for an afternoon.

Wargear cards of 2nd Edition 40k (Orks) - An Investigation

I'm a big fan of 2nd Edition 40k, it was the edition I grew up on and the one I still like to have the occasional battle or just paint up a miniature or two.

Of course as something I regard with fondness this means I am always reading up on any new battle reports or other blogs about the subject. One such subject that isn't addressed a lot is the merits of the various wargear cards you could equip characters. Now I won't go over every wargear card as I will be here all day, but I am going to do a small review of the Ork specific wargear in this post.
