|This looks like a suitable Inquisimunda or Shadow Wars starting gang to me!|
So it was straight into the stripper with the painted figures, and some final prep for the others. I decided to start off with a second grot and the converted 'heavy'.
The grot is a duplicate of one of the ones I converted an age ago into one of my feral ratlings. I like the contrast between this semi-naked grot, armed with a basic blunderbuss, and the militarily-equipped grot I first painted.
The ork with the heavy weapon (probably a heavy bolter / big shoota, depending on the game I'm playing) is converted from a fantasy crossbow orc. The conversion was actually originally intended as a mutie for my chaos cultists, but I never got round to doing the head swap I planned. Happily, he works pretty nicely as an ork with old school fashion taste!
|The heavy was originally intended to hang out with my Slanneshi cultists like Moktafi.|
The conversion simply places a Necromunda heavy stubber and backpack on the orc. I added a plastic grip to the heavy stubber, and made some minor modifications to his left hand. The shoulder pad was a late addition from a plastic Space Marine Scout.
Painting wise, this pair got the same colours as the previous two orks. I was conscious that the heavy weapon ork didn't have much armour, so I tried to pick out some hard metal areas to paint yellow (gun casing and the backpack frame).
I added the glyph transfer on the pad and the dags on the hood to try and break up the flat colour areas a little.
|I think they look pretty nice as a group.|
Typically, I've already started looking out for more orks to add to the group and bring it up to around 12-15 members. Maybe I do like orks after all!
