As you may have notice this "Orctober" thing seems to have grown steady over the last couple of years...The first I had heard of it was on Erny's wonderful Blog and on the Oldhammer forum...a casual challenge among friends to get some Orcs painted...but it now seems to have taken on a life of it own!
...I'm not complaining of course. Any excuse to paint Greenskins is a good excuse to me. Though I haven't painted any of my own for a long time...the classic Orcs and Goblins hold a special place in my collection, second only in size to my dwarf collection.
So with Orctober having arrived it seemed a good excuse to crack on with some lingering greenskins that have been inhabiting my painting desk half painted for a number of months. Specifically these were a half squad of Ork boys that I need to get finished up before journey to some god forsaken planet and die storming a beach (or defending it...stay tuned!).
There are some great models in this little group and it feels good to finally get them ready for a battle in the near future.
Now these guys were painted to match the other half squad of Orks I had painted long ago..
the Big Boss was glad that the final recruits had finally arrived...
So...there ya go..my first ever Orctober post. But as you can tell by the name of this post I this might not be my last.
