Alternative Orks part two
And now it's time to continue showcasing companies that makes models that can be used for Ork armies.
ORKS IZ STILL DA BEST!
And yes, my 'assistant', Gorthunk the flyboy, is still with us today. I did manage to distract him with some pics of the Millenium Falcon earlier, and pilot that he is, couldn't quite manage to tear himself away from it.
FLAMING MORK! DAT IS ONE OF DA ORKIEST THINGIES I'VE EVER SEEN! NO WAY DID SUM 'UMIE BUILD IT! I'Z KNOW A MEKBOY OR TWO THAT WOULD LIKE TA TINKER WITH IT. BUT IT STILL NEEDS SUM RED PAINT.
In any case, first this time is MaxMini. Their assortment of orky models and bits are perhaps not the biggest but what they do have is very good looking. I myself have nothing but praise for their products, well made and of high quailty.
IF I WUZ A BIKEBOY, DATS THE KINDA BIKE I WOULD USE!
Spellcrow has few complete models but otherwise a good range of bits suitable for Orks. A treasure trove if you feel like embracing your inner painboy.
PAINBOYZ IZ REALLY GOOD FOR YA WHEN YOUZE HAS CRASHED YOUR FIGHTA-BOMMA. GOTZ ALL ME BIONIKZ FROM DA BEST OF THEM.
Lazer Cut Card is a bit unusual in that they operate from South Africa. They do not have much to offer but the few models they do have are well worth the look. The models themselves are also unusual as they combine MDF, card and plastic tubing.
DAT GOES BOOM! AND IT GOES BOOM FASTA! HUR, HUR, HUR!
Finally, for this time at least, we have Black Hat Miniatures. They have two ranges of Goblins that would work well as Grots. First is the Tonttu (the above picture), which is what Black Hat calls their Sci-Fi goblins. To me they look perhaps a bit too much like mini-Orks in the face, but I will not deny their coolness. The other range is more classic Goblins but styled like World War 1 Germans! Could be really fitting in a World War styled Ork army.
BAH! PUNY GROTS, EVEN A 'UMIE IS BETTER DAN GROTS. BUT THEYZ CAN BE REALLY SNEAKY LIKE, NO ONE THINKS THEY ARE GONNA DO ANYTING AND THEN BAM! THEY KILL SOME BEAKIES.
And that is it for this session. Tune in next time for the even more links, I've made sure to save the best for last.
