Da Boys iz back in Town!

o/

My Tankbustas, so generously painted by Admiral Drax after I won a contest on his blog for his 500th post back in May, arrived back on my doorstep this past Friday. I think they look fantastic! The bases aren't flocked per my request so I can base them to match my army. Drax lamented the speed at which he painted them, but in that time span I've only painted 2 Orks myself, so he was moving way faster than I am on the green skin painting front!

Anyways...

...ere dey are!
Note: the spiral on the rokkit, I never would have even tried to do that something like that myself!

A brown, leather-like helmet...in all of the Orks I've ever painted, curiously that idea has never occurred to me.
Gray Knights SUCK! Just saying...



Again, another rokkit painted waaaaay better than I would have managed.

Neverness and I already have a old Ork codex (as I sold my copy of the new, heinous tome) vs. a new Ork codex game in the vague planning stages for an as yet unknown future date.

Also, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! This will be my final post for the rest of the year.

Looks good, I look forward to the old vs new tussle, whenever our schedules align that is...

@Neverness: Yes, hopefully that will happen BEFORE the wedding...

@Adam: Yes, deez boyz been kickin' some beakie ass!

Admiral Drax said...

Tee-hee! Thanks mate!

Did you note the Cadian 24th helmet on that last fellow there? I hope you don't mind a cross-Atlantic souvenir?!

Oh, and NO gaming ever happens *after* a wedding...

@Drax: You're welcome sir! And yes I did, though I was wondering if that was a result of a Cadian/Ork tussle in the paint queue, or just some typical Ork looting?

Luckily for me, my Wolfy is a gamer as well, so gaming will continue. In fact I need to get cracking (at some point) on painting up her Fem Fa'Tau with their new unit decals that I had made for 'em by Fallout Hobbies. Its ironic in that I haven't bought a GW model in about a year, and yet the painting queue for them is still miles long...

Fem Fa'tau - love it! You're obviously a lucky man...

Da Masta Cheef said...

I am, yes! :-)
