New Orkling creatures from the Space Riders KS :)
I've dared to paint Nurgle dedicated Orks. Though you can find that Orks, in the uneven case they turn apart from Gork and Mork and may be prone to worship a Chaos Power, it would be more likely Khorne, the God of war and bloodshed, but there are cases of Orks who turn their cult to other Powers, such as Nurgle, for example.
If you remember the Waaargh The Orks! book of old, there was a tale about that. Among the widely known Ork myths we can find The Hunt:
Gork and Mork go looking for a gigantic Squiggly beast and find it at the bottom of a huge cesspit. Also at the bottom of the cesspit is Nurgle, who has eaten all the Snotlings. Gork and ork clobber Nurgle so hard that he spews up all the Snotlings who are still alive. Nurgle shrinks and becomes a Squiggly beast. The Snotlings then turn the squig into a feast for Gork and Mork. This myth clearly represents the Ork triumph over Nurgle. The Orks have no fear of the realmss of Nurgle, and happily thrive on Squiggly beasts that breed in their cesspits.
So with that precedent, let's just talk about the minis!
|Talk 'bout me!|
The sculpts are great, as the rest of the kit. They instil pure charm. There really is a RT quality to them.
|It's not easy bein' green|
|Yup, I'm supposed to look dirty|
I've consciously avoided flash green for the flesh, and I kinda like the result. I'm used to painting that vibrant green for Orks and I think I'm keen to a change, I'm trying different tones and colours on the next ones.
I'm finding these Chaorks pretty fun. It's a shame I'm doing such a slow progress these days, I'm totally hooked up, hehe! Let's hope the weekend brings some spare time!
|High fiv... ehhm. High tentacles!|
