Back again

Yeah, I know it’s been a looooong time since I’ve posted anything.  Life has been busy, things happen, hobbies fall by the wayside, etc.  I’ve actually been working on several projects, so I am going to try to summarize them in the next several posts. Since my last set of entries, there has been a total revamp of Warhammer 40K, and in my opinion, the Orks got the shaft again – it’s just not a very competitive army.  I have a lot of time and money invested in them however, so I’m determined to make lemonade out of my lemons.

New Project!

Well, I guess my ork project is going to be put on hold – I’ve signed up to participate in the Badab War League  and chose the Exorcist chapter of space marines.  Now before anyone accuses me of jumping on the Grey Knight bandwagon, I didn’t know that they were a successor chapter.  I picked them because someone had already taken the Lamenters, and I thought they had a cool chapter symbol. This also looks like it will be a fun army to paint!

April Painting Challenge

I never really liked the Snikkrot model that GW made, in my opinion he pretty much looks like any other ork – no clan designation, and for being stripped down of gear (as his description has him) he is still carting around a lot of stuff.  I picked out a couple of ork officer heads by Kromlech for him and his demolition expert (a big mek with a power klaw).   These two paired up with the Blood Axe boyz I am working on with Kromlech’s orks in soft caps should make a fun effective unit of kommandos!
