Death Skulls Orks
The Black Reach Warboss seemed appropriate for Deathskulls, with no modifications.
||An old metal Freebooter Kaptin model makes for a charismatic
(if a bit short) Nob. I mixed a custom purple color, trimmed with
yellow for contrast. It sounded odd at first, but I found that purple
actually looks good on orks- in my opinion anyway. I call it the
"Incredible Hulk phenomenon".
|To make the power claw stand out, I painted white "bony
finger" lines along the fingers for emphasis. The skull and crossbones
decal on the back actually came from a Macross model, but equivelant decals
can be found on the old Epic Imperial Guard decal sheets.
||This is one of the Gorka morka metal models, converted into a Death
Skullz looter. I added an ork skull to his head and a shield to his
side ( both from the plastic fantasy orc set), a shoota arm and ammo belt
from the new 40K plastic orks, and some additional gear from the marine
sprue. The skull shoulder pad is from the plastic Khorne Berzerker
| A back view of the looter. More gear added on here (this
looter has been busy!) including a metal skull glyph plate on the left
shoulder, stikkbomz from a plastic Warzone backpack, and a chainsword from
a mutie raider. The rope grapple is actually on the original model-
I had to be careful not to cover it up!
Two of the Black Reach plastic Nobs. Amongst other conversions,
I gave them Kustom Blastas instead of the default sluggas.
Various plastic Ork boyz, and an old metal Runtherd mini.
I slapped a metal jump pack onto an old metal Ork and gave him new
plastic arms for two fisted goodness. The second model is an old
Freebooter, and the third is a metal Burna boy.
A couple more loota boyz, one with helmet looted from a WWII model!
Various Yoofs, made from a Necromunda Goliath (!), a Gorka Morka plastic
ork, and an old Space Crusade Gretchin (!).
More Yoofs, made from an old plastic Ork, Gorka Morka Ork, 40K 2nd
Ed. Ork, and a plastic fantasy Orc.
Here's a couple classic Painboy metal models. The Bad Doc (middle)
has been equipped with a saw from the old plastic battlewagon kit- that
thing came with loads of great accessories... The last one has a more modern
arm and slugga, and a charming hair squig to boot.
A suitably skull-laden bike.
A wartrakk with extra loot (bodies?), upgraded driver (using the new
biker orks), and a scratch built harpoon gun (swappable).
This is an old plastic Trukk from Gorka Morka, with upgraded driver,
wheels, and back end. It works great as a buggy or small Kart.
This larger Kart is mostly scratch built, with the odd bits from a
Gorka Morka Trukk. The Grabba arm is swappable for other weapons.
The Gorka Morka campaign had long been without Dreds and Stompas, so
I finally got around to scratch building one for the Deathskulls!
My friend Mat scratch built this tank, based
on the Epic scale Ork Brain Crusha. I upgraded the tracks and
wheels, added some more details, and painted it.
