Tankbustas! Following hot on the heels of the Shoota Boyz comes the Tankbustas. These Boyz I've had built for ages and even had most of the base paints on them. After powering through the Shoota Boyz I was in the mood to paint even more Boyz so decided to get these finally finished.
It has been a long while since I've added anything to my Ork army. I've wanted to get some shoota Boyz painted for ages, going back to when Shadow War: Armageddon was a thing. Well I built a squad of them ages ago and they've been left to one side waiting for motivation to strike. … Continue reading Ork Reinforcements

My local gaming club planned to hold a Kill Team one day tournament back at the beginning of March. I decided to make use of my Warhammer World purchases and put together a crack team of Ork Kommandos. Below you can see how I put them together.

It's great having a deadline for getting models finished by. That tends to be my biggest motivaton as I refuse to game with unpainted models. With the Octoberfest tournament looming, I needed to get my second Painboy model finished in order to use him. I'm glad I did as his feel no pain rolls were … Continue reading The Doctor will see you now
Well it's been 6 months since I attended my first tournament and still I've not gotten round to writing up about it. Well before we sweep it completely under the rug, a very brief summary.
