Kommandos #1

There is something about orks that makes them well suited to “pasted on” themes.

Give a space marine a sombrero and he will look like he has unresolved emotional issues… but give a space ork a sombrero on the other hand (or even better, on his head) and narrative starts to shoot out of him like fireworks.

Epic / 6mm Blood Axe Stormboyz

“Raz” on the Lead Adventure Forum was working on some Epic Stormboyz, planning to add smoke plumes coming from the jump packs.  I remembered that I had these guys packed away and decided to take a photo for reference.  So I decided to put the photo up here.  I think that they still look cool seventeen years later.

The photo is gigantic by the way, mostly because that way you can see the camo pattern that I painted on them back in 1997 🙂
