Well let’s be honnest…. Warhammer 40k is probably the game I played the most (but not the one I went the further away to play πŸ˜› ) so as some of my local finaly dive back into it I wanted to show them that I was also interested into going back to the grim dark, therefor I decided that I shall finish at last having 2000 points of orks, all of it PAINTED. So it will start with:

  • 30 60Β  61 Gretchins
  • 1 Killa Kan’t

And it might have sparked back another old dream of mine…. more to come later πŸ˜‰


Also… I always fancied myself of a Cadian… but damn I don’t even have 500 pts at the ready! This has to change… so I have 3 squads and one command squad at the ready, if I throw in two more squads and one squad of Kasrkin that should do it, might do some other stuff so I can get some alternatives and a slow 1000 points build.

  • 20 Infantry
  • 10 Kasrkin


Space Wolves are lacking basic troups… So got 3 Blood claws to finish my first squad of Blood Claws for starters. Then a second squad of Grey Hunter is required and another full squad of Blood Claws. I think having two of each basic troops would make for a solid base.

  • 10 Grey Hunters
  • 18 Blood Claws

Priviet Komrad!

Here is my first 30Β  31 Gretchins for my Ork Army Extention.

So you can see the Glorious Grotbadchef and his troup of Revolutionarian Gretchin ready to go on the field of honnor!

Colour guide found below.

I did one with the contrast paint ork skin, didn’t like it so went back to the regular, was it that bad? not really and if I had to get 100 orks on the table top quickly I would use it, but do I prefer it? Nope

Here comes the Grots!
