Hello good people. I hope you’ve all been well.
Last night my best mate and co-host of Fly On The Wall Podcast, Big Waz, came over for a game/battle. It was the battle of DunkOrk but this time round I fancied having a relaxed game without worrying about photos and documenting any of it. “So why bother post about it?” I hear you say haha. Well this post is about the pre-game preparation. Namely some stuff I built and painted.
As I don’t get to game much I always like to put something new and fresh on the table. This time round I focused on the Orks once more.
First of all I built this whacky little tank from left over and bits and bobs. It’s well over the top and cartoony… exactly the way I like my Orks. The front command turret is the head or cockpit of a sentinel from GW and the main body, including the tracks, is from Kromlech. All the other bits are from random kits. I think it’s NUTS and I love it haha. Unfortunately I didn’t get to paint this bad boy but he’s next in line. As long as I don’t get distracted by other cool and shiny things which is often the case haha.
Next I tackled the Blitzkrieg 222 Assault Vehicle from Kromlech. I’d had this resin model sitting in a box for quite some time and hadn’t really given it too much thought. As I put it together I got more and more excited because it is full of detail. My favourite detail being the gunner in the turret sticking his finger up haha. I added a few bits here and there, including the poor soul spiked to the front bumper, and also changed a few little things too. Painting the armoured Ork car was fun and easy.
Next I wanted to add some more troops to my WWII German Army Themed Ork Horde and built and painted a fella I call “Da Russian”.
Then I painted a couple more standard troops. I love the Afrika Korps theme with these green warriors. Love those sub machine guns too!
I didn’t paint as much as I wanted to due to time restraints but I was pleased with what I got done over only a few hours of hobby time.
It felt great to get some paint on some more Orks and the battle of DunkOrk was awesome. Big Waz played the attacking Orks and I commanded the Imperial Guard. Despite smashing the Örk attacks again and again the filthy Greenskinz juuuust managed to win the day. It was so much fun that I think there might be a DunkOrk two! Hehe.
Here’s a shot of the table set up.
I’m off on a solo camping trip for three or four nights now. Work has been manic and I need a break and just need to reset. Hopefully that’ll give me a bit of time to catch up on some of your blog posts although I’ll be off line most of the time. Disconnecting 😉
