Painted Kromlech Orc War II Head

Filed under: Modelling

ow2-closeOnly a few members of Grimlug’s Lads are currently unfinished. Today Gorog finally stepped out, ready to face all comers. Armed with a rusty kannon (cast in resin from this mould), a club (from an Ork biker) and a backpack of krak stikkbombs, this Gorker is not to be trifled with.
Did I mention he has a WS of 5?

Other than the use of a custom cast resin weapon, this warrior is special because of his head. He’s built using a head from Kromlech’s Orc War II head pack.  

As you can see these heads fit perfectly on modern 40K Orks and suit the style rather well to boot. For those interested to see more of these heads in action, you’ll be glad to hear that another model using one is nearly finished. Hopefully photos of him will be available in a few days.

    Sweet! I like the home-made bases. Are they simply a small piece of cardboard how it seems? I have to make some of those too, the regular 40 K bases I use at the moment are far too big to get all the boyz on the vehicles.

    I make each base individually from relatively thick plasticard. This way a reasonable number of Orks fit on each vehicle, unlike with the annoying round bases!

    BTW is this Ork smoking a cigar? Wow thats cool 🙂

    It’s a little hard to see, but he is. It’s sculpted onto the model.
