The Orkmacht, 28mm Games Workshop Warhammer 40K Ork Killa Kans.

Just a post to prove I'm alive, even to prove it to myself, life has just been a little fecked up, things are getting me down but who can say that doesn't happen to us once in a while........

These are some Games Workshop Ork Killa Kans found in a drawer from a previous project and hey presto you have the beginnings of the Orkmacht, an ork army with fascist tendencies?

A few balkenkreuz later and we have the beginnings of something weird, maybe wrong, who cares, there will be a backstory. ......and Ray will sigh!

I do still visit and read blogs but more lurkerish at the moment, thanks for reading.

    1. I totally agree. Nice to see you might be back. It was a bit sad not hearing someone bitching about Ray ;)

    2. He does enough bitching for the two of us.

    Top notch mate.

  3. Those are wicked, Fran!
    You are the Angry Lurker - what can we expect but some lurking?
    Hope things start looking up.

  6. Great to hear you're still with us Fran! The KK's look superb, maybe a bit too pristine... if I might make a suggestion it'd be that you whether the Balkenkreuz decals a bit. Part of life is being down, that's what makes getting up from our knees such a wonderful feeling right ;-) So lurk all you can by all means and then when you're ready return with a vengeance okay?

  11. Great models and a very interesting paint job. In one of the old `ere we go books from GW there was a mentioning of this Nazi Style Orks.....paint more please I cannot wait to see some more.

  12. "Orkmacht" is clever and the models look very good! They remind me of headless roasting chickens ready for the oven! Glad we have confirmation that you are not dead yet!
    Keep fighting the good fight.

  13. That is one big gun, awesome job.

    So the angry lurker, lurks? Can't say you didn't warn people at least lol

  14. Very, very cool models, Fran. They look like they'd work in multiple game scenarios.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Very cool! Those remind me of some of the first GW 40K Orks. Keep on bloggin brother!

  21. Hey, nice to have you back Fran! Those cans are mighty cool.

  22. You were missed at the Shed of war today. But you couldn't make it so John filled your spot. You had the chance of attacking Ray or Postie or even Big Lee! Still never mind.
    I do like your killa kans.
    Hope to see you next week at Skirmish!
    Take care mate and stay cool and groovy. And if you need anything I am an email away!

  23. Excellent work dude!
    Great idea, Nazi Orks, love it.
    I find when life gets you down a massive spliff works wonders, you then enter the fuck it zone.

  24. Great work Fran love the colour scheme and markings :)

  25. Nice looking cans of Doom.
    cheers

  26. What cute little fellows! All the best to you Fran - life does have its ups and downs. Hope the ups are on their way!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great work, General. on your new warriors. Hail Franonia!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the idea of the "Orkmacht"...the right mix of brutality and stupidity wrapped in a warped ideology...and housed in an armored dreadnought! Very cool.

    Hope things work out for you at the moment and maybe we'll get to meet up for a game soon?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Good to see you're still there and painting.
    Very nice result !

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, Fran, I hope whatever is bringing you down will pass quickly and resolve in your favor. Keep your head up, my friend!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Cool stuff Fran - Orks must be Nazis right?

    Hope whatever has you in the dumps turns around quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  32. The blood on that robot's drill is just beyond menacing and awesome. I love it. And don't let life get you down - it's always fucked up, just in varying degrees of fucked-up-edness. It'll be less fucked up soon, I'm sure.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Those looks great. I look forward to see what you do with them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great to see you posting again, let's just hope Ray hasn't got a super-secret giant tinopener for these beauties to face !

  35. Excellent work Francis. Keep your powder dry. The worm will turn my friend. It always does.

  36. Hi Big Man and I am sorry to here life is fecking you around, a right pain but I hope it get better for you soon.

    I like the Killa Cans and they have the feel of the Paul Bonners illustrations for GW back in the day and are looking damn good.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Looks great Fran... Das Waaaargh!. Hang in there buddy. We cannot always control what happens in life, but we do have control over how we respond, as difficult as it may seem at the time. Hope things work out for you sir

    ReplyDelete
  38. They look really rather good. Colour reminds me a bit of the old Britains Kubelwagens and stuff. Can't wait to see how your other plans for the Orkmacht work out!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hope things start looking upper soon :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is going to be fun. I like the look.
    Hang in there, you know what they say, "What doesn't kill us makes us stronger." Don't let it kill you...

  41. Real nice figures.Are they scratchbuilt? I am planning to build some mechas of my own very soon. The SoTR-game is very nice allowing to build own models and using them on the gamingtable. :)

  42. I don't think I would like to run into them. They look unpleasant. Makes me think of alien robot invaders.

    1. No, I've changed my mind. Your's are scarily futuristic.

    2. That new top photo is a bit scary. Looks too close to a burka. Ooh.

    3. Yohei (Samurai Monk) from the 16th century I believe?

  44. Absolutely brilliant, these work really well! Definitely has that "Iron Sky" feel for want of a better term.

    1. No worries, and if things are a bit fecked up right now, well it's never permanent and makes the good bits of life all the more enjoyable. Anyhoo, hope all gets better soon sir!

  47. Digging your new header Fran. My favourite saying is "I will gnaw on the skulls of my enemies" I'd have that tattooed on my arse, but thankfully my arse isn't quite that big :0)
