Busta Morgon Ė Ork Hunter

The local GW July Painting Comp.is a human of the Imperium. I did have some early Imp. Guards but other than a few arms I canít find them Ė got rid of a lot of 40K stuff a year or so ago but I kept a few figures just in case I could make use of them but seems I got rid of the guards.

The figure is a mixture of plastic and metal, some of origins unknown and the fluff of the Armageddon Ork Hunters seemed to fit what was built. There are three variations of camouflage pattern on his clothing Ė which works too well as itís been difficult to get good photos.

Painting Comp. Entries
« Reply #29 on: August 05, 2019, 02:27:46 PM »
This was my entry in the GW Everchosen competition the other weekend. I was planning to buy the Kal Jerico figure to do until I was reminded that this figure was in my neglected ďnot even considered let alone close to the 2 DoĒ box. The turtle is Milliput and Green Stuff with some bits having been cast from a shaped pencil rubber.



The Stormcast was for last weekendís competition which is simply any Stormcast figure. As usual Iíve painted in the colours of my favourite 40K legion and shows how they chose their Chapter Badge (before the modern Ďeavy Metal team decided it was too difficult to paint.)

By the way, for those less familiar with all the 40K space marine chapters, what is the name of your favorite chapter?

Hi GP Ė I guess, like me, you were born long after the birth of the Mentor Legion in White Dwarf 98, Feb 1988. At the time they had special rules and equipment that meant they were quite powerful and you could only ally a squad to your army. Their badge then was an owlís face (similar to figures belt buckle and birds head), but was changed some time ago to a red raptor's head.

Ah!  Yes, that is the chapter I started doing.  Didn't recognize because of your green color being different than what was shown in the Space Marine chapters book I have somewhere.  GW used a darker green, almost like a deep emerald, might have been called Dark Angels Green, back in the day.

I'd like to find a copy of that article, didn't know it existed, would love to read it.

Cool, good stuff there, thanks for posting!  That is the most I've read on the chapter in one place.  Excellent.

Somehow Iíve been conned into painting more Ultras but as Iíve been paid in plastic no-one can complain about me buying stuff. Itís 40k so Iíll be taking a break from Discworld for the next few months. Just hoping our GW store continues to hold its mini-army painting competition during the first 3 or 4 months of next year as this project is perfect for it and will give me a target to complete by.

Nice, as ever. What really struck me was the bases. They're standing on some kind of Necron stelae? And I just love the colouring of the sand!

Bases Ė When I was painting the figures for Ďthe Sands of Iotoí (on page 1) we had a discussion on fantasy and the fact most modellers finish their models based on earthís equivalents rather than doing something otherworldly i.e. unusual or different. My friendís favourite colour is purple and when I came to do the base I remembered orange sand cropped up a few times in the discussion so thatís what I went for.
 
The Necron connection is due to me obtaining a cheap box of figures last year. I have used some parts in my builds and doing these ruins seemed to be a way of using the decals.

Sorry but Iíve no idea about the Ultramarine Honour Guard and his back pack; I know he was purchased on Ebay but the bolt pistol and boltgun are from my friendís bits box. To me the backpack looks normal marine equipment.

Re: Non-Discworld Stuff - Two more Ultras

Two more Ultras for my friendís collection. One is Sergeant Telion but I donít know if the other has a name.





Iíve been working on a Legion of Legend competition at the local GW store, it is basically a small group/army of 4 items/units but my initial ideas for it have got a little out of hand and if I build everything it could be an Armies on Parade entry by the end of the year. Iíll therefore give it a thread of its own Ė The Apatoa Pahure Pioneer Corps Ė to start later this month.

One of three Witch Hunter Inquisitors designed by Jaun Diaz and released by GW in 2004 which my friend acquired a few months back when GW did one of those limited reruns. Heís adding an Inquisitorís warband to his Ultras which is why she has the blue robes.

Re: Non-Discworld Stuff - Discworld OrK OOK NOT?
« Reply #49 on: September 28, 2021, 10:43:53 AM »
I see Discworld related things everywhere.

I need a few Orkky bits for a project so I obtained the free Ork Nob from GW this month to get them. The shop then held a painting competition so I had to build and paint what was left of him which included adding a few bits from the bits-box to replace missing parts. The gyphe on his fez came from the original Ork battlewagon and is clearly meant to be a tortoise so I had to follow my usual practice of adding the Great God Omís name to the purity seal.

It was a good excuse to get my paints out of storage but they have suffered with the heat. I havenít checked them all yet but Iíve lost about a quarter of those looked at with others being revived with acrylic thinners. The annoying/strange thing is that it is the new GW  paints that suffer most yet their original Citadel Colours from the 1980/90s that I inherited are still going strong.



There are orcs in Discworld but not as you know them.
