The end of Orktober is upon us. I didn’t get the whole Combat Patrol box painted but I’m very happy with what did get done. 16 out of the 20 boys are done (missing some basing materials but with the post being what it is these days, that’ll be what it’ll be.

This army (not including the Kommandos for Kill Team) was originally bought over the last couple of years to paint up but got stalled by FOFU (Fear of Forking Up). I knew in my head how I wanted them to look but not how to get them there. I wanted a Freebooters army with lots of individual looking minis.I have a bunch of bits bought to convert in the future but getting this batch done, vanilla though they may be, was a first step.

When it came to paint schemes I knew I wanted bright and colourful units that would be identifiable but also look cohesive. Whether my love of bright colours or my love of third wave ska came first, I’ll never know but there is a deep rooted place in my heart for the album covers of cds I played to death twenty+ years ago.

So these boys (and more to come in the future) and themed around Less Than Jake’s Losing Streak cover. The purple colour was harder to get a handle on than I was expecting but I’m pretty happy with how they all came out.

I also managed to finish off the Kommando Kill Team that has been sitting less than half done for four months on the hobby desk. For some reason I didn’t do a matching base for the big guy when I made the rest of them but I can’t be bothered to do it now. I’d say I’ll come back and do it in the future but we’re all hobbyists here, we all know I won’t.

Orktober goal was the 25 miniatures in the Combat Patrol box and instead I got 28 orks done. That’ll do Gorram, that’ll do. Time to take a few weeks off Orks and make some headway on the other big army projects but I should be back with more before Christmas.
