Waagh in production - Epic 40K Orks
« on: 17 January 2019, 18:09:20 »
So, I picked up some epic scale Warhammer 40,000 orks before they vanished from the Games Workshop web store. Not Just a basic set of their infantry and a set of vehicles.

Knowing how custom orks can be, it wasn't hard to justify kitbashing some of the leaders and other vehicles to fill them out.

I don't plan on using them in Epic 40k games, as such.  So, instead I've styled the selected forces out of the 2007 Ork Codex, which was the last one I picked up.

Right now, I don't have much finished.  But, I have enough that I was able to cobble together a Speed Freaks war band and a Bad Moons army, each at the bare-bones minimum of 999 points.

Also, I had some other standard 40k bits sitting around and was inspired to make a Stompa kitbash, which was pretty easy to do with the right Dark Age add-ons.  I also have the starting point for a Gargant.

It's not completely done, yet, as I have to add some details, but I have it with the group for the Bashers to guess at what parts I used to put it together.

So, the Spead Freaks army has a ways to go, yet.

-Evil Suns-
(HQ = 123) Warboss with War Bike, Big Choppa, Ammo Runt, Cybork Body and 'Evy Armor
(Trp = 460) Nobz Bikers x10 with Stikk Bombs
(Trp = 159) Slugga Choppa Boys with modded Trukk
(Trp = 127) Shoota Boys with Trukk
(Elt  = 130) Stormboyz with Nob

Point break downs upon request.

Right now, I have the Biker Warboss done, as well as the Slugga/Choppa Boys. The Trukk actually will go with the Shoota Boys when they're done.

Close-up of the Red Shirts.  They don't get the reference, because they're just into red going fast.  ;)

The group consists of 12 boyz overall, one with a big shoota, a nob, and all the rest.

Foreshadowing: there was a mix-up about the naming convention with the other mob, and they called themselves the Red Shorts. The Nob was an easy mod, but I decided against doing that with all of the Epic Kommando figures.

The Trukk in this group actually belongs to the Red Shorts.  Theirs will be have a reinforced ram, Stikk chukka, and extra armor plates, as well as the obligatory red paint job.

Right now, I only have the Bad Moons Warboss finished.

Here's the breakdown of that army:
(HQ = 100) Warboss in Mega Armour
(Trp = 360) Meganobz x9
(Tspt = 90) BattleWagon (unmodded)
(Trp = 335) 'Ard Boyz x30 with rokkit launcha and x2 big shootas and a Nob carrying a big choppa (inclusive)
(Trp = 114) Gretchin x28 with Grotprod weilding Runtherds x2

Yeah. I have a ways to go, yet.

Update on the Stompa.

This is the completed one. Now to finish the rest of the ork figures.

In combat with a few recognizable pieces. Flash and natural lighting.
