Rogue Trader Space Ork Raiders Complete!

G'day M8's!

Asslessman really got me fired up about finishing projects that hadn't yet been completed.  So  I set myself to sweat shop like conditions and cranked these bad boyz out over the last week.

I present to you Skar Toof leader of the Black Toofs...cuz their teeth iz black.

I also owe Cheetor a big thanks, I had kind of toyed with them being kind of war boyish with the warpaint. When I saw Cheetor doing it better, I jumped in feet first, touching up the 10 I had completed already.  Then finishing off the rest of the Waaaaaaaagh Boooooooyz!







Skar Toof fancies himself a warlord...but he is more of a raider captain.  Don't tell him that though or he will have is bodyguards ruff you up.




Skar Toof commands two squads of ork boyz led by a couple of viscous squad leaders.


He also has some cannon fodder in a squad of Gretchins with some ranged fire power.  Paaaaaaanzershkrek!!!!!!


As you can tell I really went for the Fury Road War boy look, much like Cheetor.  I feel like his is a lot more artistic then mine.  But that goes with the territory of batch painting.







   If the squad leaders don't get ya, the boyz sure will. ;)


All ranked up together they really look the part.

I have really grown attached to these little monopose orkies.

  1. Absolutely brilliant! I could spend hours just poring over Paul Bonner's amazing artwork. You couldn't have chosen better source material for your Ork gang. I still have all of these figures in my own collection of WH40K Orks, although not as well painted as yours. The "Mad Max: Fury Road" is inspired. I'm so glad you ended with a big group shot - that is always appreciated. So much Orky goodness here!

  6. I do have a sweet spot for mostly black units and armies and I like those a lot. You combined them into a great characterful unit.

  7. Paul Bonner's orks are the only GW orks imo. So much more character and fun than the boring current style.

    Love the black warpaint on these. On that light skin colour it looks super mean and intimidating.

  8. I might have a couple of these bad boyz lurking about in da Grotto. Loved these when they were first released back in the day and love them even more now! Great work

  10. Looking great, I like the addition of the gretchin to the band. I was just looking at the Battle at the Farm scenario and saw some guidelines for tattoos/warpaint for my boyz.

  13. Late to the party but that's a great bunch, they have loads of that crazy Ork personnality. Well executed yellow, too

  14. Like some of the others, I love your Black and Yellow combo. It really gives them a desert desperado feel. And orks should always be colourful, although there's so much temptation to make them dun and dirty. Beautiful work, ABG!
