Da NOO Masta Cheef!!


Da' old Masta Cheef, back in da day...

Back when I semi-rage quit playing the Orks upon the release of the wretched 7th ed Ork codex, I sold the lion's share of my army, along with my Warboss 'Da Masta Cheef'. I felt he ought to be leading hiz boyz whereva dey wuz  fightin'

My Beloved Wolfy and Neverness both were aghast upon hearing that and over time I did in the end have a bit of seller's remorse about selling Da Cheef. I'll admit it now that...every now and again, when bored and with time to kill, I'd peruse the ebay offerings for used warbosses in hopes of findin' Da Cheef. 

'Acting' Warboss Krump & Pittance, in all of their mediocre glory.

Countless auctions of this one, same mini, in everything from on the sprue to primed to 'pro painted' (sometimes yes, and so very, very often laughably no). But never once did I see my old Warboss. In his absence, Krump & Pittance stepped up to assume the role for the few 40k games played since then. He has performed with mediocrity which is all that can be expected of a glorified nob. 

Wouldn't it be nice if GW got over the fucking endless Primaris offerings and released a new (not 10+ year old) foot slogging Ork Warboss? Yeah, no. Apparently not.

Well...is there anything else out there? 

Yes, quite a lot actually, or as Bob so eloquently put it: 'When other companies GW better than GW itself can actually do.' After searching through all of the 3rd party offeringsI found a new warboss from Hardcore Miniatures, one of the MANY non-GW companies filling that obvious void!

Thus, I present to you: Da NOO Masta Cheef! Armed wiv Da Dead Shiny Shoota relic (orks & relics? wtf?) and a power klaw bit from a mega nob! 

Next to a shoota boy to show the scale.

The requisite skulls and beakie helmets on the base.

The little engine exhausts on the bionik arm were a nice touch.

Hopefully I'll get him painted before he sees the table top, and with no 40k games on the horizon there's a halfway decent chance of that actually happening.

It is a great mini.

Looking badass!

And yeah, really, the Ork "relics" should be called "Kustom Gubbinz" or something like that.

I agree, that would be fall more in tune with the Orks!
