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!

Want an easy way to get a good looking Freeboota Orks/Flash Gitz?

A nice looking Freeboota Flashgitz from Hellbrandt Grimm

If ya like Pirate Orks, liked the new Kaptinn Badrukk model but don't know where to start? You came at the right moment. After some searchin' around the Internet I'z found some interesting stuff : There is custom resin made Pirate Ork heads and bodies made to sell!

Both of them are from different shops, so you havta' get them seperately. Nob-sized pirate bodies are readily available in the Microart Studio shop and nice looking Pirate Ork heads are available in MaxMini. Alternatively MaxMini also have smaller heads for da Pirate boyz here.

So lets get to the cost of getting five Pirate heads and bodies

Pirate Bodies x 5 = 9.76 euro
Pirate Heads x 5 = 4.80 euro
Total = 14.56 euro

So thats about 17 -20 euro (USD 21.00- 24.60) with shipping. Rememba that you need Nob hands and weapons too. If you want to model them as Nobz, then you could easily get the choppa/slugga/Power Klaw bits from the plastic Nobz set. Metal may do too, with some pinning for safety. If you want to model them as Flash Gitz instead, you could bash up bits of gunz together from GW (IG models have plenty of gunz), Forge World, MaxMini, or any other custom miniature resin shop. If you're tight on budget, the cheapest way is to cut and tie up two regular shootas together.

If you're wondering about the size of the pirate bodies, My War Game website has a shot comparison of the bodies compared to a Nob. Here is what you'll get from Microart studios :

And here's the comparison of it to a Nob:

As reviewed by them, it is worth taking note that you need greenstuff/putty to stick the arms properly to the body for more dynamic poses, and careful on removing the block of resin stuck on the feed as it may break the feet off.

Hellbrandt Grimm from the Warseer forums have some good examples of his finished Freeboota Flashgitz here.

Here are his WIP pictures and completed ones:

Looks pretty nifty huh? Enough motivation for ya to start your own Pirate Waaagh now?
