Orks


Speed Freeks Completed Set

At the beginning of November my friend, Tim, gifted me a most generous and unexpected birthday present - Speed Freeks.  We had both been excited for this release but for slightly different reason.  We both fell in love with the previews of the models.  Tim was more interested in the actually game as he is not an Ork player and has no plan to start an army.  He is, however, a fan of games like Gaslands so this seemed like an game that would be easier to get on the table...and the models are cool.  I was actually more interested in the models than the game as they make excellent additions to my ever growing and expansive Ork hoard.  I kind of figured the game would be somewhat of a throwaway game.  It turns out it is a pretty fun game all on its own.For the last couple months I have been working diligently to complete the entire set.  If you have been following along you have seen the posts for each individual Speedmob and a brief blurb about the game itself.  I am p

Speedmob #2

I finished up the second Speedmob for my Speed Freeks game at the end of last year but I ran out of time to get the pictures and make a post.  This mod features the Kustome Boosta-blasta and three Ork bikers.  The Kustome Boosta-blasta is in the running for coolest model ever!  These new Ork buggies have so much detail it is crazy.  My only complaint is that much of this detail cannot be seen once the models is assembled but for some reason it does not seem right to leave these details unpainted.  The take forever to paint and build.I was really hoping to get these on the table for some New Year's Eve gaming but ti was not to be.  I am not sure when I will get to use these but I am looking forward to it.So no paint credit for these for this year.  Now on to Ork basing updates!

Shadow War - Round Five

I've been very slack about updating the blog lately, but that isn't because I haven't been gaming. With the new year just round the corner, I thought I would rush to the end and summarise the whole of Round Five before the new year. Belt up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.My plan was for this to be the last normal round of the campaign. After this I only want to play one final fight which will involve all six teams and settle the overall winner of the campaign. But that's going to take a fair bit of time and planning, so probably won't happen for a little while yet. This round will be crucial though, as it will establish the final leader board, which will determine which teams have the advantage in the final fight. Game 5a - Wyches vs Sisters of BattleI rolled up the Ambush scenario with the Sisters as Defenders. The Sisters took up a defensive position on top of the Promethium Refinery. This gave them a good vantage point, but, unfortunately for them, all the Sisters had to deploy in the centre, with none of

The Megatrakk Scrapjet

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.

Speedmob #1

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

Shokkjump Dragsta

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.

Guaiacan Commandoes Arrive on Xoxigar

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
