Orks orks orks!

Phew... can't keep up the once a week pace anymore!

Well, I've finished some more Orkses.

Not much to add. Quick and dirty. That's how they like it.

Born to Be Wild!

 In a fit of I don't know what I went back to painting some Ork vehicles. Indeed I think I might have to cancel my Zorro efforts and just have a go at the orks. I never really started the Zorro things yet anyway.
 I love Orks. Any shape or make. Almost. The GW ones are great, but I find the Marauders of Mantic just as good. I'm not a huge fan of the new style of GW orks, as they're all very alike, which sort of takes away from the character. I like my orks varied and not so serious.

 But mixing in a few of every manufacturer and a good bunch of old orkies will hopefully give the right mix.
 I also worked on an old tank that I started years ago. (I think it started it's life as an Lost and The Damned tank).
Not much to say... failed at decaling the gun barrel, but will give it another go later (or just add battle damage to the one I have put on).

Not much to say about the painting. Quick and dirty... wash and go.

Icy Dead People

 A few more bits for the Scavenge, Skirmish, Survive game that I'm planning. Some of the figures are actual corpse markers and some are actually zombies from Cold War miniatures.

 I thought zombies would do just fine as corpses though.

I also stuck in a thing from the outer stars.... In H.P. Lovecraft's At The Mountains of Madness there's this thing called a shoggoth. Weird sort of worker bee for an alien race. Anyways the Lovecraft story is set in a snowy environment as well, so I thought I might paint it up while I was doing snow anyway.

I have not dedicated a lot of time to painting or building since Horisont V but I've begun doing the walls for my SSS buildings. I'm still in limbo about whether to do an actual board (or boards) or another gaming mat. I might go with boards due to the snow, which requires quite a layer to look good.
