A new year, a new plan- I really have a lot of small orky stuff around here -but I never played with them before -maybe because they are in a bad shape -an unpainted mass.

I had a lot of good plans, a lot of conversation ideas, but I need some motivation -maybe YOU people can push me a little forward with the little green ones.. :D I only need time to go on with them , but it's not easy (at least I didn't finished my BLood Angels & Ulthwé Eldar..), family is the highest priority now. But who knows, maybe this thread will help me to organize my ideas, and we will see how this thing ends! :)

So, I have plenty of orks -huge amounts of them! truly masses of bases of Grotz, Boys, and Nobs! A good Start -Yeah, I also thought the same at first.. But I need a theme for my orky army -I don't want to make a "usual" ork army -nooo red is fasteeer, etc. Not this time!

So where to start? I have a lot of Imperial stuff -hey, wait, do orks have LOOTED vehicles? HELL YEAH, of course they have some! I see looted imperial tansk everywhere! And which clan has the largest imperial motor pool? -for me, The BLOOD AXE clan is the perfect answer to this question. :)

So, this is where I'm at now. I started a Blood Axe (an USMK "BA" army - just not Blood Angels this time :D ) army, based on IG chimera chassis vehicles, and some SM Land Raiders -but the BA's orky camo is also a bit far from me -so I started to realize, that I need some special color scheme for my army. I choosed the brass/copper-dark red- metal colors to be my base colors, and a STEAMPUNK flavor for my ork army.

I have :

-2-3 FW Baneblades/Shadowswords ->a good start for my Gun/Battlefortress units (if I want to play with another list, because BA armies don't have Battlefortresses).
-Some FW IG Manticore, Hydra, Medusa -as the future Lobbawagonz, and Battlewagonz (hydra guns for flakwagonz)
-Huge amounts of old plastic Land Raiders -they will appear as Big Wagonz -the BA Stompas :) My personal favourites, I have a lot of ideas for them!

-1/300 Heroic & Ros WW1 German fighters -to become Deth Koptaz -sadly they are too small to be Fighta/Bommaz, so I need some bigger WW1 aircraft -Twin engine bombers to become my F/B force!
1/300 Zeppelin bomber to become my Bommer :) A HUGE one, belive me :D
For a steampunk force, I think they will fit well. They are futuristic things in an ork army! Altought they need some serious orkification!

-Dystopian wars scout airships to be Big Koptaz (I'm sticked wth the eldar skimmer-style of play, sorry), unique BA units.
-DW prussian airship to be my Landa (for a classic ork list, again), or something similar -I just like the way it looks, I want to ORKIFY IT! :D

-DW Prussian and FSA small robots to become my Nobz and Killa Kanz.
-The new stormboyz look very WW1 german, they will fit my plans
-Need some ork Kommandos (I have a good proxy for them) -I like them as a stand alone formation!
-The poor ork boyz will be OK, but I need some test painting for them.

So. I have this stuff ready -They will be enough for a 2-3000p Ork Army I think -I hope that the time will be also enough for me -orks are very numerous, a lot of infantry, a lot of cheap stuff..

As you can already meet my Fortress units, this will be my base paint scheme.

They are not ready however -they need some banners, little grotz on them, and a base -so they will half-fit in a 2015 ToEG :)

They have a ship-like funnel (the black-yellow was a popular combination at the beginning of the 20th century) -I really like to make them appear as "land-ships" or something.

A GW Nob vs DS Prussian Robot -size is correst, just it looks too slim. They will get a funnel also -the lizard-like face is just the photo's fault..

OK, a to-do-list:

-2x Drop Kans: Some large, custom made ones. Steampunk/WW1 flavour needed here :D
-2x Big Koptas, made from Dystopian Wars scout airships
-4x Gun/Battlefortress, looted form IG Baneblade/Shadowsword. " are almost ready, 2 more under conversation! MAybe the 2 new one will get a WW1 pant scheme instead..
-5x Lobbawagonz, looted from IG Medusa Assault Gun +1 Oddboy -Ready, made from a Traktor Cannon.
-6x Big Wagonz -made from SM plastic Land Raiders, using the parts of the convertet IG SHT's (Some of them are ready to paint!)
-6x Battle/Flakwagonz Looted IG Chimeras/Hydras
-8x Dethkopta -made form 1/300 Heroic&Ros WW1 German fighters
-9x Fighta Bommas from 1/300 Heroic&Ros WW1 bombers
-2x Bommer -from 1/300 Heroic&Ros WW2 French Aimot-143 bombers

This will be a much easier/joyful task, than making ork infantry.. :) I usually like to make vehicles more -they are faster to make, and not as boring as 40+ bases of boyz..

So the infantry:
-2x Big Warbands + Warboss (Nobz from Dystopian Wars Prussian Small Robots, Boyz from old Stormboys -if I can find enough! At the moment, for makeing 24 bases of boys, with 5 on each, I need 120 old Stormboyz -now I have around 50.. But hey, they are more like helmet wearing WW1 Germans, so much better for Blood Axe than normal boyz miniatures.)
-3x 6 units of Kommandos (from forumware stuff -they wearing a mask, that resembles me to Gas-Masks from the WW1)
-2x 6 units of Stormboyz (Again, a WW1 german looking unit)
-4-6x Killa Kanz form Dystopian Wars FSA Small Robots.
-10x Big Gunz/Lobbaz from WW1 German heavy artillery -maybe, not sure of this, still waiting those Big Bertas to be released.. :)

+1: A Landa-Zeppelin, just for fun -made from Dystopian Wars prussian assault ariship! A true monster of a miniature, and the future crown jewel of my army :)

This will be a huge army, maybe a ToEG 2015/16 at the end -Since I use many miniatures from that range, I started to shift from the steampunk theme to the WW1 german/axis way, but hey, at least it's the Centenary of the Great War, isn't it?

Thanks! :)

I found that orks are a bit less popular now, than they were a few years ago. I really like to change this a bit, and revolt against the popularity/hegemony of the SM lists! :D Every single Epic player has an SM army (well, me too), but IMHO orks disappeared a bit..

Orks are perfect for converting a unique army (however I also found them a bit more challenging to play with, and I still don't find the best army composition)!

I'm finding Orks to be an interesting one to play with. Just need to find a formation that is good at tackling WE.

Depends on size, but (Great) Gargants for the bigger stuff and either Blitz Brigades or Gunmobz with Supa-Zzaps for smaller WEs.
