More 2nd Ed Orks more being refurbished and in the background you can just see a glimpse of one of the first batch of five which are finished now and I'll take a snap of tonight.
As much as I've enjoyed painting these Orks I'm glad this will be the last ten (I've got 36 now), though I did manage to pick up three plastic warbikes at the weekend from The Other Partizan but they need minimal work to bring them in to line with the rest of the army.

The first five Boyz are now finished and you can see some more pics and a bit more wittering from me over on my blog:

Just a couple of quick and dirty photos to show some progress.  I finished off another ten Goff Boyz along with a repaint of ten Gretchin to match in with my existing bunch and moved on to some Bad Moon Mega Nobz which I'm enjoying painting.  As usual the paint scheme on these has remained as it was I've just brought it in to line with the rest of my army.

I usually look at the 2nd ed stuff and hate them, or find them hilarious.

BUT these mega armoured nobz are actually brilliant. Id have to maybe get one for myself if i can find one haha, very nicely painted too :D

Cheers chaps,

Here's a work in progress shot of a Mech Boy I'm refurbing with a shot of how he started off (after I did an arm swap to give him some more close combat clout).

I've taken some pretty snaps (well reasonably so) of all the recently completed Orks and if you'd like to read me waffle on about them some more you can head over to me blog:

Excellent work.  While I wasn't huge on the plastics, 2nd ed. was the last time I liked Ork miniatures.  So much character/uniqueness to them.

Cheers, I think there's a certain charm to the plastics but this may well be due to nostalgia.

Bit of a change of pace for this one, my cousin (and main opponent) asked me to paint up a banner for his Black Omega Space Marines.  It was my first time painting up a sculpted banner like this but I think it has turned out alright, I ran with the Babylon 5 influence from their name.  He just needs to apply an Omega transfer to the centre and it will be done.

A quick WIP post for another restoration paint job, a Mech Boy with Shokk Attack Gun.  The Mech Boy is basically complete now with just a few details to do but the gun is so far untouched, I'm looking to get him done over the weekend so I'll hopefully have some finished shots soon.

I've finished the Mek Boy however he's just had a layer of varnish so a bit to shiny for a photo right now so I'll get one done at the weekend however every Shokk Attack Gun needs ammo so he's some Snotlings I've just finished.  Nothing fancy at all, mainly just used washes to bring them up to scratch and then did the bases to match the rest of the force, fun little guys though (no use in 8th Ed but look nice set next to the Mek).
