Orky bosses

 Calendars don't mean much to me nowadays (beyond work deadlines! But those tend to be measured in hours, or days at most), so it's no big deal if I tell you I didn't even realise it was Orctober until I had these halfway painted.

As other times, this was just but a side project to get stuff done while working on larger stuff. Straightforward painting and little else, just to keep myself active instead of stranded in the middle of neverending projects.

These come from Knightmare Miniatures, and were a real pleasure to paint, in all their glorious oldschoolness. First of all this Nob, which, I have to say, is really big.

That's not a 25 mm base, but a 32 mm one!

There was something about the pose, the hairy squig, the cigar... I don't know. I suddenly thought of Hannibal Smith :D

So I went for that kind of style, I chose light colours, painted the Squig white... You know. Now I need three other desperados for my Special Kommando Unit :D

OK, for now let's move on. I have several Meganobz, I have painted a couple of them so far. I wanted to keep myself apart from classic Clan colours and make them more Rogue Trader era looking. I tried white/cream armour for this first one, as well as a blue/grey skin. I was determined to make him look different!

Ankwardly lanky. Pure RT

However, I painted this other one just yellow. It was just a hunch, but something about this sculpt yelled 'Bad Moon Clan' to me. I thought of other options, but in the end I came back to my first idea.

Day 56. The Imperial Fists still do not suspect I'm an Ork

I still have another couple of them, I think I should do them now that I'm in an Orky mood. But for now this is what I got:

Told you, that guy is huge

I think I may keep on painting some Orks. Unless something else pops up, you know how these things work...

  3. Great stuff, especially the yellow armour. It reminds me a bit of Primaris armour, strangely. The cream armour also works very well, especially the blue/grey skin. Good work!

    1. Thank you! Once I got the yellow one painted I thought it clearly wasn't strictly Bad Moon, it kind of reminded me an Imperial Fist or even a Lamenter! Now he can go undercover!

  6. Las minis son una delicia y tu estilo de pintura se adaptan perfectamente a ellas. Ambas circunstancias confluyen para darle ese sabor oldschool que nos retrotrae a aquellos inicios de las primeras WD y Rogue Trader. Estoy seguro que ha debido ser un verdadero placer sacar adelante ese proyecto.

    Bravo
