Heya, time for some Orks. Because there's always time for Orks, right? More after the jump
The Megatrakk Scrapjet, one of the latest Ork release. It'll work brilliantly for any car game, easily my favourite of the lot, I find the vehicle really cool. Again, it took so long to put together and super fats to paint. A few scenery debris, can't remember where they're from and it doesn't matter as they are the worst pieces I've ever seen. Cast in foam, absolute crap, got them at salute last year for very cheap.
I have finally finished the first Speedmob for the new Speed Freaks game. I previously showed you the picture of the Shokkjump Dragsta. I have now finished a three bike mob of biker to finish this up. These are the first Ork bikers I have built and painted and they are almost as much of a pain in the ass as the Deffkoptas. I am really looking forward to trying out this game and also to adding these models to my 40K Ork army.Speedmob #1Biker mobBiker Nob the leader of the mobBiker 1Biker 2
This Episode the Allies of Inconvenience Crew kicks off as usual with hobby progress, delving into some discussion of a few cool forge world kits with it. We then launch into the meat of the Episode with our initial thoughts and impressions of the Kunnin Brutality (or Brutal Kunnin) of Codex:Orks. We follow that up with some discussions of the cool new Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress, the models within and their place in 40k, and fluff surrounding UR-025 and the Men of Iron!

This is one of two new Ork buggies included in Games Workshop's new Speed Freaks game. This is the Shokkjump Dragsta and it is just about the coolest thing ever. I just don't even know where to start with this. The style, the vibe, is just perfect. I have always thought of Orks as space rednecks and this captures that perfectly. I mean. really, you have big tires, side pipes, a cool scoop and a spoiler, oh and an Ork driver, a big gun with grot gunners and a targeting squig. It even has a flux capacitor and the grot gunner is using an Atari 2600 joystick for the missiles. It literally has everything you could want. Perfect.
4.912.018.M41Xoxigar TertiumAgravian subcontinentSector 43 - The Area of Operations for the 222nd Guaiacan Commando Regiment. After such a long transit through the warp and painfully slow movements to orbit their destination world and the woefully disorganized planetfall, Sergeant Hammer knew his troopers were NOT in their best form. Despite all the sim-training throughout the voyage and the constant physical training, their heads were not "in the game". They lacked a sense of urgency. The usual razor sharp edge of their bodies and minds had been dulled. Sergeant Hammer decided the best thing he could do for them was to get them out patrolling in the jungle - pushing hard - looking to make contact with the enemy... The rest of the squadron could finish setting up their forward operation base.Sergeant hammer mustered his section, grabbed "Doc" Sanders, and a couple of the gunners from the troop's special weapons section and headed out for a long range patrol. After a day it was evident this jungle wa
Life continues to be stupidly busy. I finished the Genestealer Cult Kill Team I previewed in my last post, but haven't had the time to take pics of them. I did manage to paint something new this week though...The Orks have always been my favorite Warhammer 40k army. In the grimdark of the 40k universe, where everything is horrible for most sentient races, the orks cheerfully blast through the endless battlefields having the time of their lives. I've collected them since the days of Rogue Trader. It's weird there are only three posts on this blog about them.The new codex for 8th edition orks just dropped today, though the 'net has been full of leaks and images so there isn't much that remained a surprise. Forums seemed to have mixed feelings on the book, with competitive players unhappy about this point value or that ability. I always find that terribly amusing, but then I'm not a tournament player. My armies are always composed of the models I wanted to paint rather than the best synergies and I prefer narrat

Games Workshop have recently been firing on all cylinders with their releases. Each week it feels like there’s something else released that I’d love to own. Near all recent releases for either Age of Sigmar or Warhammer 40,000 both have been hitting me right in the wallet. However, for the first time in a long time I feel like Games Workshop have under-delivered on a release. After all the bluster, the bellowing, the shouting about the Ork releases for “Orktober” it feels like they weren’t able to quite conjure up enough to fulfil their self-devisedprophecy. Time Has Not Been Kind… I’ve seen a fair amount of folks online being underwhelmed with the Ork releases this month. Whilst the internet can make a spectacle of the worst behaviour and melodrama, I can somewhat see their point. Some of the Ork models are not aging well alongside newer models like the Primaris Marines of the Age of Sigmar Orruks themselves. Games Workshop howling at the top of their lungs saying t
Something new from C L Werner and the Black Library...----------------------- Coming SoonNew TitlesSeriesAuthorsIron DevilC L WernerTaking refuge from deadly desert storms, the Imperial Guardsmen of the Cadian 267th find themselves in even more danger as they face the might of an ork Morkanaut.It's an old-fashioned haunted house story – it's just that the house is an abandoned Adeptus Mechanicus factory and the ghost is a huge (and deadly) ork war machine. There's even a madman in the attic (well, the control room)...

I've been wanting to start a bit of a narrative campaign for Kill Team since it came out. I wanted to get something special ready for the players - a rich background setting of my own devising and a bunch of purpose made scenarios to weave an elegant narrative in the grim dark galaxy of Warhammer 40,000... Well, I'm not quite there. I'm not sure if I'd ever be there... in the words of General George S. Patton; "A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week..." So I just went ahead and started a campaign this past Friday evening with just bit of background and a desire to build the campaign narrative as we go...What follows is a bit of the background I have hammered out so far and reports of the first two actions of the campaign.Campaign on XoxigarPositioned just on the wrong side of the Cicatrix Malledictum, Xoxigar has felt the light of the Emperor diminish in recent times, though not so much as to be completely forgotten. The Xoxigar system has three inhabited planets.
I have a spare few minutes waiting for my Scarf catalogue to print out, and just popped on over to see how Orktober is going. I ave to admit I was underwhelmed by the orkiness of the month until about a week ago.Now with Klan Kultures revealed and new trukks and gubbinz leaking all over the interwebz, I feel my WAAAAGGHHH!!! rising in a way only fandom marketing and advertising can do. Well done Games Workshop Ad' Ladz!What's caught my eye is the sudden disappearance of Boyz from the Games Workshop website. Even the Start Collecting Kit has vanished, and so I'm guessing some new kit is inbound. This would explain why the ork Kill Team box set has featured Burna Boys, instead of the standard Troops choice everyone else gets.The good side? Well, new models are always nice and the old kits were rather busy models for a horde army. Not a bad thing to have detail on a model, but for a model that actually might die to a lasgun shot it was an awful lot of effort. This would be a good opportunity to simplify th
This week’s video has been postponed to next week so that hopefully the book it relates to will be available! Conveniently there’s an Ork vs. Deathwatch video about to age-out to fill the gap.
