Orktober 2020

Orktober, and why Grots Matter Too. MM #28

It’s Mini Monday, where I share customizing, scratch building, kitbashing, and miniature painting projects for your roleplaying and tabletop gaming. It’s also Orktober, so it’s time to Waaagh! This week I’ll share what I’ll be painting for the rest of October.

The Goal

Paint 31 Orks by the end of Orktober. Simple.

Oh, and run a company, do adulting well, get enough sleep, and don’t burn out. Hey, if you don’t challenge yourself you don’t get anywhere. Let’s paint some Orks!

The Boyz (and Grots)

These are the models I’m aiming to finish by the end of the month. All are primed and ready to go, some are almost done.

Orktober 2020

The list includes:

  • 1 Wierdboy
  • 1 Mek
  • 2 Runtherds (1 Kitbashed from an old Black Orc)
  • 2 Nobz
  • 6 Kommandos
  • 1 Ork Boy with Big Shoota (AKA Lascannon, from back in the day)
  • 6 Ork Boys (Kitbashed from old Warhammer Fantasy Orcs)
  • 1 Ork Boy with kitbashed shoota and choppa stabby thing
  • 1 Warboss
  • 10 Gretchin (2 from the latest kit)

You’ll get a better look at all of them in the weeks to come. Some of them already made an appearance in our article on kitbashing Ork weapons.
And Gretchin count, so sod off.

There are two more Mondays left for Orktober, so I’ll post updates then and again on the 2nd of Normalvember. Next week it’ll probably be the Kommandos, unless they sneak off.

What Are You Painting?

We’d love to hear from you and see what you’re painting. I’ll be checking out the #Orktober and #HobbyStreak tags on Twitter for the rest of the month, so please connect with Rising Phoenix Games or myself there.
