[This was my seventh entry for the Fifth Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, reposted here for folks not following that blog.]
The Epic project rolls on. Having finished my Titan Legion last week, I turn now to their green-skinned foes. My Ork army consists of three clans, all of which are a bit on the...B-list as far as popularity goes. But what can I say? I like my Orks weird. So first up we've got the Blood Axes...
|About half the clan...I'll have to figure out a way to shoot larger groupings of troops...|
For those unfamiliar with Orky backstory, the Blood Axes are a clan of Orks that "trade openly with the worlds of the Imperium, parley with the foe, and will even consider retreating from battle if faced with insurmountable odds." Of course, every other Ork clan hates them for this distinctly un-Orky behavior.
|Half the infantry and their Rhinos.|
In the background I've worked up for my army, this clan is a mercenary company that's hired on with the warboss (who will hopefully be showing up in the next update). Due to the fact that they're mounted in Rhinos, I've dubbed them "Panzork-Grenadiers" and have given them an appropriate palette - dunkelgelb for the armored bits and the heavy weapons, feldgrau for the fabric bits (which are only visible here and there in these pics).
|And the other half.|
|And the Nobz.|
This clan also sports a couple support units, and they'll be showing up in next week's Epic update, along with the second clan of the army.
