Well the same thing basically happened again this year, but I sucked it up and managed to squeeze in a little something alongside my current painting projects.
I knew that I would only have the time to paint one mini so scoured my small collection of Orks (all Rogue Trader) looking for a suitable
In the end I plumped for the original Rogue Trader Ork (well original named Ork anyway...) Thrugg Bullneck himself from the Battle at the Farm from the Rogue Trader rulebook.
I painted him in my now preferred 'grimy' Rogue Trader Ork style compared the quite colourful Ork Clan style of my first space ork.
I imagine that his furs probably came off a fur squig or some other exotic alien beastie and so painted them a lurid green...
Here he is with my other painted orks, showing off my change in style since the guy on the right, I will have to tone down the yellow on his helmet and darken up his skin to match the others at some point.
Still working on my Champions of Law, one of the them is done but the other one had an unfortunate run in with a green wash and needed some repainting and still needs finishing off (and his shield...).
Till next time.
