Its been an absolute age since I was last around, been very busy doing all sorts of interesting things warmachine related, but in the last few days I've been getting the Epic itch, and decided to put paint to metal again.

I'm currently durdling around with my Orks, and might be repainting my force, as well as picking up a few odds and ends to finish up some mobs. I'd like to have enough bits to represent the old army cards, while still being useable in Epic Armageddon. Not like I ever play Space Marine era (or Net Epic) or indeed get to play much Armageddon, but its still nice to have the options, and it gives a goal to aim for.

With that in mind, though you guys might like to see the Evil Sunz dreads and kans I painted this week.

In other news, if a mod sees this, is there any chance I can update my username? Please PM me if so :)

Very nice! Are those GW models?


Yup, just veeerrrry old ones.

They are the original Ork Dreads, the 40k model was modular to make what became either a dreadnaught or a killa kan.

That's the 40k scale version (from Rogue Trader).

Aw. Them sweet memories of yesteryear. You did them justice, and then some! A friend of mine is setting up an eighties style RT mini campaign and your painting was a nice reminder of happier miniature wargaming days, before humour was annihalated from the 40K fluff.

Cheers man, having been gaming for over 20 years now, I do miss the days of 2nd ed 40K. Orks in particular were just too much fun.

I'm long gone from GW sadly, but I still like to sit down and read the old fluff and oggle old minis. The revival of oldhammer and other such escapades is great fun for me, though I'm not quite the long beard some of those guys are.

It did all seem to be a lot more fun back in the day than gaming can be at times these days... though I wonder if its because we were all so bright eyed and bushy tailed ;) We live in a golden age of gaming, but at the same time I do feel we have lost some of the magic of yore.

those are seriously impressive! I agree with nitpick, the older style ork models were just great, full of character and humour, they looked bodged together without just being a random pile of stupid looking spiky scrap metal

awww scrapheap challenge.... how I miss it and it's conveniently located items in the scrapheap... "you mean someone just threw away a brand new NOX injection system and it was located on the passenger seat of the car you were salvaging? what are the odds??"

Great paint job.

I sgree the days of innocence are long gone. A strong indicator is how the tournament scene evolved.
On the other hand not all is bad - technology brought us the means to have a large base of third parties who widen the range of choices. Also painting changed a lot in the last 20 years and not to the worse
