wip. New Ork models November 2018. pictures

Orks are finally out again!
With a few new models.

DeffKilla Wartrike wip.

The model assembled easily, I left a few parts off for easier painting then finished the assembly and painting and there is still room to do more painting when I feel like it later.

Over all I do not like this model and, sadly, only bought this models for it's rules.
This is something I do not usually do and is part of why I don't like this unit. 
It feels like a special character but it doesn't have the 0-1 restrictions on it.
Because it sin't a special character.  I was also disappointed that this model has only one build and how other head for the boss or other weapons options.
It feels like a special character but it isn't and because of that we will see these spammed and that's a little sad.

Squig Buggy. wip.
A weaponized food trukk covered in redneck hillbilly savages....

I was a lot more excited about this one. 
Loads more excited in fact.
It's a jack of all trades kinda vehicle. 
It looks well better than a few of the other new vehicles but...
I didn't really enjoy painting it. 
It has 5 crew models and feels cluttered. I think if I'd had a plan I would have fount it easier to paint and more entertaining.
sadly this felt like work and not play.

I've just been in a mood lately I guess. 

I have no more new Ork vehicles at this time but plan to buy 3 more in the new year.
I had thoughts of a squadron of sorts but will probably not rush into that.
I wanted to get these models I have finished before buying more so I wasn't under a pile of unbuilt or unpainted models.
I've been there and it's not all that fun. lol

I'll post pictures of these again when their bases are sorted out and who knows maybe I'll be happier with them at that point. 

Thanks for looking!

More new projects to come!

Guardians con 2018. 10/21/2018

Well alright!

I drove up to Jacksonville on Friday afternoon to be at the shop on Saturday morning about 0900-ish.
The tournament seemed like a pack house to me about 24 players.

Game 1
Nurgel daemons 
Not a lot to say about this game really I hadn't played in 2 weeks and had not played in some time before that. My expectations were low, this guy is known to be competitive and as I understands it is known to win tournaments.

I was thinking he might have some kind of deep strike ability and was deployed to try to counter it as best I could, in case I was to go second.

Orks go first!
Flyers to the front, maybe I can do something good with them next turn or kill some of his models if they explode. I am also trying to block his path a bit to box him in and change his flow of movement.

Boys hop out of a trukk to take an objective and the trukk moves up to screen.

He landed his charge to the trukk and tagged the next near by trukk. 

My two mobs mob up, my trukks fall back so I can shoot and charge.
we killed a bunch of them.

We get into combat but can't do enough and it works more for him than for me.
We called the game at the end of turn 2, there was no way for me to win by then.
Oh well, only the first game.

The guy playing these blood angels was up till 0300 in the morning to get his models presentable for the table!  That makes me happy. 

Game 2  
Several tanks, transports and artillery a few units on foot and a Super Heavy tank.....  

I set p ready to race to the other side of the table. 

A bit risky but Burna Bombas in the center.

Looks like trouble.

My bombas manage to fly behind his whole army and bomb the heck out of a transport. Kill some snipers (First blood) Kill a heavy weapons team as well. An excellent first turn putting the hurting on the A.M. 

He got an Airshow!
He'll remember this one for a while. Haha.

I've scored 2 objectives and first blood on turn 1

He goes after the other Objective.

He destroyed a War Kopta.
He drives a transport up a famous Kommissar(Who needs no introduction....) Is riding in side.

He brings up a squad and a Priest to charge my trukk.

So, about that transport and famous Hero... 

The hero is slain, unable to disembark his destroyed transport much the the A.M.'s dismay.
Orks win 6 to 1-ish. (No way to recover in the following turns the game is over in 2 turns. 

Game 3
"Space Wolfs"
My usual Scrumgrod...But why!
Lots of infantry Nu-marines stuff and some characters, Long fang squads, other squads.

Ork win first turn and ZOOOOOOM! Across the table.
Bombs are dropped.
we've wiped out about 500 points of his army in the first turn.
5 Long fangs dead, 3 from another squad, 5 hell blasters and several models in another large squad.
Some shooting leave an opening where one of his minor heroes are now the closest to my Shock Attack Gun. And is blasted to bitz!

Shock and Awe!

I'm ready to take which ever of my Objectives I need to on turn 3. 

He's trying to sort out how to recover...His brain is on fire.

He starts to shoot down my flyers.

He has to charge this bomba with a jump pack hero guy. I fail to explode dashing my plans of a spectacular explosions of mortal doooms.

It all happened so fast.

My vehicles take position and do shooting.
We don't know which of his Objectives are the real deal yet but I now own one of them. Good for me.
He is a bit stressed.

I've launched a good charge to kill some of his models, wiping out the rest of a squad and tagging an aggressor squad.

My plan was then to use da Jump on my tank bustas to the Objective on the other side, giving me 2 objectives of his and ...maybe I'd end up with the one he'd roll.
Da Jump was a failure. Didn't cast or he shut it down, either way. 

The end game. We now know the far objective I had planned to attempt to jump to is in fact the one he needs.
Time is running out.

He gets his objective, time is called we end the game having played 3 turns. 

Ors victory due to first blood.
Good enough.

My Scrumgrod wasn't too happy about that but it is what it is.

In the end I had managed to shoot up to 6th place. Not bad nearly the top 5.
If I could play more I might get good at this game. lol.

Thanks for reading!

This was it for the Index.
Bring me a CODEX!!!!!!!


Where's Warhead?

Till next time.
