NOCF Charity Ork Army - Allmost... Alllllllmost...

Oh so very close to the finish line now! Over the last few days I've been doing battle with the house refinance so that's eaten up some time, but I did manage to finish off the detailing on Da Boyz!

Got all the black flames done, added in the copper jewelry and bullet casings, and got the spot colors laid in on the Rokkit Boyz. Also went back and picked out all the little teef and leather I'd missed here and there one the way through the lot. Phew!

Next up is a little further work on the Rokkits, then on to the bases - hurtling towards the end!

In other NOCF news:
-Zab has started laying in the base shading on some Ad Mech goodness!
-Greg has started working on the Grots and pressed on with the Deff Dredd (which is shaping up to be a corker)!
-Celso has done a frankly astonishing job on a battlewagon for the force as well!

More to come!


  1. Cool, and I love how some are yellow with black flames and some are black with yellow flames. The Battlewagon is also cool, I think it;s a great model I always feel my mate Ben should take one as the Trukks he uses always get blown up and don't look half as impressive but I imagine they must be a better option regardless of their durability.

  2. Good work chief. I like how you made the rocket troopers stand out a little and all.

  3. So - much - greeeeeeeen! (And yellow!)

  4. Rather splendid work mate. These extra details are making them pop.

    Good luck with the re-fi. Might mean more funds made available for more Forge World purchases!? :P

  5. great looking mob, love the skin tone you got on them!

  6. Ere we go, ere we do, ere we go, WAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!

    Great work so far!

  7. So near. Awesome job so far dude

  8. They are looking great, I would love an ork army. The only thing that puts me off is painting so many boyz. You actually make it look like a doddle! I might dig out my aobr orks and have a bash at some point.

  9. Always wonderful! And my orks with Mo'Dakka surely needs some more boyz!

  10. Is that Nob on the right eating the shell casings?! :p

  11. Looks AWESOME! Waaaaaagh!!!!!

  12. @Dave Weston: Thanks very much! I'm a big fan of Battlewagons over Trukks too!

    @Rory Priest: Cheers bud! I definitely like to have my specialist troopers stand out a bit to aid identification on the tabletop. :)

    @The GunGrave: Haha! Indeed!

    @Dai: Thanks very much! Refi complete, though I was fiscally responsible, no using funds for hobby stuff (more's the pity).

    @Zab: Thanks man! Was interesting working off another's recipe, but I really dig the end result!

    @Col. Hertford: Haha! Thanks!

    @NafNaf: Cheers man! For as many of them as there are, it never felt like a slog batch painting 'em. Wouldn't wan't to do more than these for a while, though!

    @Joe B: I appreicate it!

    @Bronislaw Czevak: Aye, horde armies are definitely daunting. Fun to paint orks though I don't know that I'd want to paint another 100+ of 'em any time soon!

    @JHaygood: Haha! Thanks very much!

    @Musings of a Smurf: Hah! Wouldn't put it past him!

    @Jugger: Thanks man!

    I appreciate all the kind words everyone - thanks!
