Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm looking for a neat way to model 14 kommandos, 2 with burnas.
I am not a fan of the kitted out rambos that the offical models remind me of. I'm thinking something more like ninjas, but Orky ninjas!
using branches, rocks and snow for camoflage, being really silly.
i also thought of orks with bandannas, or headbands, with no shirts on, but i don't know where to find barechested greenskin models to work form... any ideas wold be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
AWESOME! Thats what I'm talking about!
I'll definitely use some of these ideas!
I used FB Orks (19 for 30 euro with lots of bits) and kitted them with a combo of left over boyz bits and fb stuff and painted them in a Urban camo scheme, wich i atually plan to use for my whole army.
I havent given them much kit, some have a weapon on the bag and 2 choppas (mostly short knives from the FB set)
some have one gun/knife.
Its still a bit rambOrk but less then the GW models standard
I mostly use the standard Boyz sprue. Then use some bitz from the Stormboy sprue. Mostly stikkbomb/slugga combo and heads. I think the downwards pointing dagger arm from the FB Orc box is AWESOME for Kommandos aswell.
They certainly have a kommando look to them. I used the spare Cuttas(?) from the boyz sprue to make a few more aswell. I have given alot of my kommandos the biker waistcoat torso. It just seems less armoury than most ork torsos. Now i need to work on goofy nightvision googles!
One of mine has goggles that are Imperial Guard weapons team binoculars (sp?) strapped around his face and on his eyes.
I took basic ork boyz. I gave one of them the burna head with the bandana mask, because it was too cool. I added on pouches, for keeping stuff, and stikkbomms, for bommin stuff.
Boom. Kommandos. Just paint em cammo and you are golden.
Also, for the love of all that is holy, take the backpack and head that come with the Snikrot miniature and THROW THEM, as hard and far as you can... seriously... does GW even read their own fluff?
No! You cant throw Snikrots head, its awesome! Although I agree with the backpack, he looks much better without it.
Anyone see the Forgeworld Kommando kit? Was thinking of buying it. Id use the heads for Kommando's and the backpacks for Tankbusta's.
