==+ Deff Korks of Krieg +==
=X= The story =X=I've always wanted to do some crazy project in which every model has some sort of conversion going on. So I started thinking on what seemed cool and descided to go with a Pre-Heresy army! Piece by piece I started collecting a Pre-Heresy Luna Wolves army and I'm having a great time building/painting/playing with this army...
HOWEVER, all that white/gray can really be a b*tch to paint from time to time, so to add a bit of variety in my painting I descided to also start with a completely different army.
Now I've always liked Forge World's awesome Krieg models AND I've always had a weakness for heavily converted Ork armies, unfortunately my wallet heavily disagrees with an all Krieg army and my creativity heavily disagreed with coming up with an idea for an Ork army. Basically I scrapped the entire idea and carried on with my Luna Wolves.
Couple of days later I had to order some more bases @ Micro Arts studios and while browsing around there I noticed they also sell sets of 5 Ork gasmasks.
Orks + Gasmask heads + loads of Greenstuff + cheap Guard vehicles + couple sheets of plasticard = Deff Korks of Krieg!
A mate of mine recently bought the Black Reach set, so for a couple of bucks I took the Orks off his hands and started experimenting. I've never done that much with greenstuff, so converting those long coats on Orks is quite a challenge for me, but I have to say that the more Orks I convert the easier it gets.
In January GW released more Ork models. Especially the new plastic Nobz are great for converting, so I added a box of these, a box of Gretchin, some bikers and a Trukk to my starting army.
The Trukk and Bikers never really made it that far, they got kicked out fairly fast due to being 'Un-Kriegy' (Orks can be fairly picky ya know? )
So the Trukks are out... making place for Chimeras (counting as Trukks ofc).
Instead of the bikers I'm thinking of getting even more chimeras and taking out a big chunk from the middle. With some plasticard and a lot of creativity I think I can make them pass as Centaurs (which IS very Kriegy), counting as Buggies ofc!=X= The List =X=
Green = Done with painting and modelling
- Ork Warboss with Powerklaw, Combi-skorcha & attack-squig
- Big Mekk with Shokk Attack gun
- 11 boyz + Nob with klaw in Trukk
- 10 boyz + Nob with klaw in Trukk (1 free space for Warboss)
- 1 Buggie
- 19 Shoota boyz inc 2 big shootas + Nob with Klaw
- 9 Shootas
- 10 Gretchin + Runtherd
- 1 Stompa
Orange = Done with modelling, still needs painting
Blue= Still needs assembly, waiting on more parts
Red = The wishlist=X= The ideas =X=
- Kick out the Gretchin and get some cheapo Krieg models from Ebay to use as Slaves (ofcourse counting as Gretchin). Do Krieg prisoners seem Orky to you guys?
- Krieg Rough Riders... maybe I COULD use bikers, but with heavier converting.
- Baneblade --> Battlewagon
- Heavy Weapon Teams --> Flash Gits/lootas/Shokk Attack Gun=X= The pictures =X=
A quick paintjob to set up a painting scheme for the rest of my army. The model isn't done yet, just using this one as guidelines.
Same, from the back! I see my fingerprint!! >.<
The boyz never come alone!!!
The 2nd Mob of Boyz! This Nob descided it's a better idea to not wear a gasmask and just shove an airhose down his throat. He does have his very own nifty Kap'n cap though!
2 more Nobz and a Runtherd (still under construction). The warboss has some basecolors and a black wash going on.
The shoota boyz! 20 boyz with poor aim and a lot of dakka!
The Trukk, still under construction ofc

New update on the first squad of boyz and the warboss!
I'm slapping some more colors on them, giving them the squadcolor RED. Their looted transport will also be getting red plating once it's up for painting, but I'm still waiting on some more parts before I can start with that one.
Anywho, I've got some more color on these minis, so they are not done by far, but I wanted to post the progress none-the less.
C&C is always appreciated!
Still looking great mate
Cant wait to see you krieg stompa
Cool orks, I love the warbosses hat, The tanks are lookin good as well.
