OAny new or old Ork players should look for Master Ein for Ork inspiration. His blog at shows his very detailed and good looking Ork units. Just check out some of his marvellous work!


"A couple of things going on here soon in the life of the waaagh. First up is Baltimore Games Day! We need some good solid boyz to show up and put on a good thumpin' to the beakie boyz over at the Bolter and Chainsword. If you are going to games day, you do not want to miss this WAAAGH!"


Most of us paint our Orks and wat not in your favourite klan colors. But what if we had multiple klans in your waaagh?


Holy crap, seems like ForgeWorld likes Orks! They never release enough of 'em, which is good fer us!

Ork Battlewagon Review

   The new plastic battlewagon from GW. The fans are waiting a long time for it, but here it is! This time, Games Workshop did post pictures of every bit in this kit for reference. But I prefer it to be red though, cause the red wunz go fasta'!

Look at all those parts and bits...its like a Ork player's dream come true! GW really put an effort into making this Battlewagon as orky as possible! The base design like the tyres and most bits do look similar like the new ork trukk, so it will look good if bunched together with your trukk. You probably won't use all the bits on this battlewagon (such as the 'ard case. grabbin' klaw, killkannon) you can keep it for the use of upgrading the looks of your Trukk or even your custom Looted Wagon.

What's better is there are actually 4 boyz and a grot in this kit as well. Yes, that means there are 4 extra boyz heads that is interchangable with other miniatures with the size of boyz, like regular Ork Boyz, Stormboyz, Lootas, etc. One of the Ork heads is also unique! (see the head for the Grabbing Claw Operator, it has a unique design with a red scope). The grot gunner added to the Battlewagon is also a bonus...I always feel that every ork vehicle should have at least a grot or two for the luls. This is the epitome of all orky vehicles!
Pros : Detailed bits, look mighty impressive on the table, extra ork heads to swap with other kits.

Cons : A little bit pricey and may require some experience (and patience) to assemble and paint due to the number of bits and the overall size of the kit.
Final Verdict : The Battlewagon is powerful in the game, but not everyone has the points to fit it in. If you are a collector or has the Battlewagon in your plans, then just do it!

Rating : 8.5/10
Retail Price : US $57.75 / GB £35.00
Amazon Price : ~USD$39.09 (excluding shipping)

Oh my god, thank you so much for the kit breakdown. Trying to figure out what was what so that I could do this as close to WYSIWYG as possible was kind of overwhelming.
