Green orks are cool, and yours are fantastic. Wonderful, clean painting that really sparkles. Well done.

They look fantastic.  Characterful models and great painting.  Whats not to like?

 :-*


Thanks mate. Yeah, you'd think there was a market for something like that, but no one seems to have picked up on it.

Im one the few people out there who likes the "new" orks as well as the goofier earlier ork models.  The old power armoured guys (like the guy in the top photo) are stone cold classics though.

The upcoming Mantic Deadzone "orx" have a bit of that eras vibe to them, but a few of the sculpts were a bit dodgy to start with.  They re-did them but until I see them in hand I wont know how I feel about them. 
I do like this guy though.  He is very "Ere We Go!"/"Freebooterz" looking to me.

Yeah that certainly borrows from the olden days. No doubt. Especially the foot gear seems inspired.  :D

But I suppose he's 4 times the mass of an old figure though.  lol

They really keep the spirits up, they look absolutely gorgeous, right in accordance with the RT style. Simply great!

Yes! There be a ship on the way. And a few space pirates.

I just paint... I can try to be a gamer all I want but painting is what I care for.

Now THAT is what you call old skool.
Proper!

What is it made from?
Is it some sort of bathroom product like the one in the rulebook?
Whatever it is, it works!

Shampoo bottle with a pair of espresso capsules on the top.  Going to paint it a bit more later. Needs yellow windows I think.

Ah, the old 'shampoo bottle dropship', certainly de rigeur for 1988 or thereabouts. I'm not even certain we called them 'dropships' at that point. I think I used to refer to them as 'hovertanks'.

Great painting on the orky minis (you really should have painted one as an albino, though!) and a great ship. I'm going to steal bits of that design. I really like the portholes.
