It's Orctober! Well, it's been Orctober for 23 days and I've only just gotten involved. Which is unsual, since I'm a long standing Orc/k fan, but real life gets in the way. Not to waste an Orcy month, I thought that I'd paint something up that's been sitting in my collection for a long time:
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Gorethz The Massive. The Warlord of the Chaos Goblin army that I've been planning for a long time but has never moved on from there. That is, until now. Specifically since I saw Chico's Chaos Orcs I've really had to give myself a kick up the metaphorical. That's not to say I'm going to get anything completed any quicker. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment.
What model it it you ask? Well it's from the original Rackham line, before they switched to pre-painted plastic and then to the liquidators - interestingly (to me at least) I was an avid Rackham collector up until I started collecting old Citadel so I've amassed quite a large collection. I guess hoarding OOP is in my blood.
Anyway, I'm planning on getting Old Gory painted up before the end of the month - as you can see, i've got my work cut out for me. Wish me luck!
Anyway, so I had all these terrain pieces lying around from the Deadzone Kickstarter,and I decided that I'd try and knock up a couple of pieces. I'm going for less of the Deadzone theme, more of a post-apocalypse sci-fi. Kinda like Gorkamorka meets Necromunda. Meets Fallout. Meets Metro 2023, I guess.
Who's Tor? He owns the shop (and it is a shop), and he has some very dapper turtle friends.
What's all this for? I dunno, I like collecting to a theme, and I'm going for PA Sci-Fi. Maybe someday I might play something with it all.
When will it all be done? Never? I'm not really working to a deadline here haha.
I've noticed that we're almost through with ORKtober, and I've not painted a single greenskin! I should probably get around to that....
Ok, I didn't pay attention to the text. But this guy seems pretty cool? I had some misgivings over the Blight Knights but i'm swept them aside, i'm actually quite happy with the direction GW is taking the Chaos (at least, Nurgle) stuff. Just, please, less tentacles and more rot.
New models up for pre-order this weekend. Nurgle Ironguts! If i ever get around to starting my mono-nurgle daemons, the guy with the giant bell is a shoe-in for herald.
The top two models i'm not hot on (or the single pack guy) - too much "bwhaaa! Tentacles for everyone!" and not enough bloat and rot. but Bell-guy, Standard-Guy and the other one are all class acts. and at around £11 each for Heralds (plus two extra bodies and a ton of bits) it's actually decent value. ish.
