Ok, one of the cool things that has kind of gotten lost was the concept of ork clans, each clan had it’s own distinct idiosyncrasies and appearance. Nowadays, the only way to tell one ork from another is through paint schemes for the most part. So I plan on using some third-party heads to represent other clans along with the paint schemes.

All of the metallics weren’t coating well, so I decided to redo the main tower with the classic Goff checkerboard pattern. The cast was so poor that the multicolored cables weren’t looking very clean, so I just made everything black.
