Confusing allegiances

Next step in the Space Riders Kickstarter minis is painting Orks, that's all I have left. But oh, my friend, these are no regular Orks, these are Chaos devoted Orks! We could say they are... Chaorks! :D

Ok, ehm... I've painted just one for the moment, a Khornite Ork. The sculpt is gorgeous, it really catches all the essence, has the full vibe of the era:

No, for the last time, I'm not the HeroQuest Gargoyle
I must say that, had I not known where this comes from, I could have thought this mini belongs to the original Freebooterz ranges, where you could find other Chaos devoted Orks. I really think it's the best compliment I can say about the mini!

You like my butt, eh? Understandable
Painting-wise I obviously chose red as the main colour, being a worshipper of Gorkne (or maybe Morkne) :D
I made up this emblem, mixing the Khorne symbol and the Ork glyph, It kinda made sense (at least for me!)

Confusing, yup?
That's it for the moment, just a simple paintjob, but I think it makes its part. Moar Chaorks comin' soon!

  1. Nice colours Suber, I really dig the black patterns on the red, seems tribal rather than too complicated whuch suits the guys just fine !

    1. Thank you! I thought so, red and black is a good combo for this guy. I think I could have risked with more black or even brass, but I think it works just as it is!

  2. Yeah, kick arse Suber!

    I like the mixture of the symbols, works fine for me. Oh, and the puns are excellent too my friend :)

    Well done!

    1. Thank you! The mini is cool and totally open to interpretations like the one I did. Making up stuff like that is fun!
      Puns? You don't take Gorkne (or probably Morkne) seriously? Waaagh!

    1. Thanks! That was the idea, keeping it simple, nothing too elaborate or ornate. The mini is elegant in its roughness, and that's all it needs to work, shows up what it's intended to, so I'm pleased!

    1. Thanks! I don't have any of the original RT Chaos-Orks, but they are really nice sculpts too. Maybe I have to delve into the internet to look for them and get a full crew together!!
