(AP 2018) GW Old school - Eldar dreadnaught - page 6
« on: February 04, 2018, 10:41:53 AM »
Started on these a while ago (and have got many, many more to do). Always liked the Bad Moons and the original Rogue Trader style orks and so here are the beginnings of my 'mob'  :)

I've also got some Imperial Guard on the go (Copplestone sculpts) and will post when there's enough to take on the green hoard.

You might remember this one from  while ago but it's the 'test paint' for the colours etc.



And here is the first dread along with a look at the base style. I'm going for red because if we get any games in with them I'll be able to play with some of the Mars terrain I've got.




And then we have the first boyz mob (only a small one for now)



The most fun was had with the tank which was for a fun little FB competition late last year.



Then there's a nob on a cyboar. I love these models and have managed to get a group of five together but only one is painted for now (note the reg plate).



And finally a group shot of the entire mob. Not galaxy conquering but they're getting there  :D


cheers

James

Cracking stuff mate! :o

I always loved the Orks from the ‘Waaaagh, The Orks’ book days. They were torture to play with, but soooooooo much fun when everything broke down!

I’m sure Colin still has his Goffs somewhere! Maybe you and him could have a clan war!

Awesome stuff Jim. I had a horde of these when they came out and I've often wanted to revisit them (mine were never painted that well though)

Lovely paint. Those particular orks with their plastic arms, marked the beginning of the end for me, but each to their own.
Looking forward to your Copplestone guard.

When Orks were Orks and not fungus (remember that particular bit of fluff? Though even that was more years ago than I care to remember).

Great colours on those. My favourites were the late 80s/ early 90s Kev Adams ones.

Thanks again  :)

Got an Imperial Guard sentinel done, quite pleased with how it turned out but not too sure about the las-cannon  :? Might swap it for something smaller.

Got a unit of guard primed and inked but doing the shoulder pads (as in the pilot below) is a bit daunting.
