Hello all.

Long time lurker here finally getting involved. Some of you might recognise this username from other parts of the web as one more often associated with 54mm Inquisitor models, but I've always been a fan of the other GW Specialist Games, not least Epic. When EA was new, I was a keen player at GW Glasgow (remember the days when you could play what you wanted in store?!), but as uni finished and I moved away I pretty much stopped everything except for Inquisitor. In recent months though, my love of (much) smaller models has resurfaced and I've dug out my old models and scoured eBay for some new toys to paint. Maybe at one point in the future I'll be able to play some games, but for the time being I'm happy to just get modelling again.

To start off this plog are some Orks. Some of these are repainted figures while some are newly painted. The Blood Axes up first are repaints over a black undercoat, but I subsequently moved to Army Painter's Leather Brown spray to speed up the process. It's a fantastic universal base colour. Anyway, pics!

So, the above pics are a Blood Axe warband, a Blitz Brigade, Boarboyz, a Snakebite Warband, Warbikes, a Bad Moon Warband and some Stormboyz. The Snakebites and Boarboyz are the beginnings of a Feral Ork Army, and I would like to do a Speed Freak one as well in the future. I've started on mainly infantry as I see these as the more tedious pieces in the armies, and while a couple of stands short at the moment of the numbers I need, I can now concentrate on the vehicle elements more or less guilt-free. There are also Tyranids, Titans, and Imperial Guard to paint. I also love what Onslaught Miniatures are producing, and can see myself doing a (similar to, but not actual) Tau army once that lot becomes available.

Great work, nice to find a more varied set of colours on the orks than often seen.

Those are some nice looking Orks with some good contrasting colours. I like the infantry bases too. Good work! Although I must admit, I've never been keen on using round 40k bases for epic. They look a bit too tall for my tastes...

Thank you all. There really is a great community around here - thanks for taking the time to comment.

I am now working on some buggies and some deffkoptas. I am at the base coating stage, so hope to have things finished off by the next weekend. We will see how real life feels about getting in the way this week though!

I probably should re-take the picture of the Stormboyz as they have come out a bit dark. They are wearing grey with rusty brown jump packs, so aren't exactly colourful, but I think I could show them off better.

The bases probably are a little on the big side, but I had a bunch of cast resin bases to use up. If I'm so inclined it wouldn't be difficult to rebase the blitz brigade in the future.

Managed to get the Deff Koptas and buggies done, and I've taken a new picture of the Stormboyz.

Red light vehicles for goin' fasta!

It may be a few weeks 'til my next update of this plog as I am running the Inquisitor Grand Tournament (March 30th, Warhammer World for any interested participants - check out http://www.the-conclave.co.uk/forum/ for more details), but maybe I'll treat myself with painting something big...
