Here we have another guest post from the vile malevolent Ork Warlord Gorblud! You may remember his Badmoon Ork army from a few posts last year. Well, its fair to see he has been very busy, lets see what he has been up to...
As our esteemed Col. Winterborne has mentioned, we’re trying to organise a massive Guard vs. Orks game in the summer. As the only confirmed Ork player, at this point I’m feeling a little outnumbered, so I’m writing this post in the hope of encouraging a few more Ork players along . . .
Before I get on to my army I thought I’d share a link to the Battle Report from the last big game myself and Col. Winterborne were involved in: The Siege of Magnus Hive
Four of us played the game at Warhammer World and it was pretty awesome . . . but we want to do something even bigger and better this time!
Right, on to the Orks. I’ve not long come back from a Throne of Skulls weekend at Warhammer World and managed to give my Bad Moonz a nice outing. I came away from the tournament with very average results (2 wins, 2 losses and a draw), but I considered that to be pretty reasonable for the use of a 7 year old codex (and no super-heavies) – fingers crossed for an update later this year.
Col. Winterborne nagged me to take photos of my army while up there but in the excitement of all the games I barely remembered. I did get nominated for the best army award though (which I was particularly chuffed about) and it gave me a chance to take some pics of them in the glass cabinets. Most of the ones I took are attached below, but there are some even better ones on the Warhammer World Facebook page if you want to have a look there. If you do, you’ll also see a lovely Ork Dredd army from another London gamer who we’re trying to recruit for the big game.
I have promised Colonel Winterbourne to paint my Ork Stompa for the game, plus finish the ~4000pts worth of Bad Moonz I have at my flat. At the bottom of the page you’ll also see the dakka-jet conversion that I intend to finish aswell . . . and if I somehow find the time I might even paint-up my Skulhamma Battlefortress (Baneblade conversion).
I’ll keep sending updates as my painting work continues, and I’d love to see what other Ork armies are out there
