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!

ForgeWorld : Ork Kommandoes conversion set!

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

ForgeWorld says it is ready for pre-order now for release in the week commencing July 26th. Here are the new Ork Kommando Conversion set from them :

Description from the ForgeWorld website :-
Kommandoz often make use of ‘Chinork’ Warkoptas to launch the Orky equivalent of an Imperial stealth raid. In these raids, dozens of Orks cling to the sides of these huge war machines before leaping onto the heads of their hapless enemy and directly into battle.
This resin conversion set designed by Mark Bedford is available to pre-order now for release in the week commencing July 26th.

Since this is a conversion set, this means that you need parts from da Ork Boyz box set. From the look of the pictures, this set includes resin parts of :

5 x Kommando heads and backpacks w/ tankbusta bombs and gubbins
1 x Kommando Nob head with a custom torso, arms w/ Big Choppa, Bosspole and a backpack w/ tankbusta bombs and gubbins. 

So you'll probably need  5 x slugga and choppa arms, Ork boy torsos and 6 x legs to make da kommandoes. Most of you probably have extra slugga and choppa arms lying around and da Ork boyz torsos and legs can be easily bought from bits shop online or ebay. Plus, I'm sure the Assault On Black Reach Ork boyz parts can be used with this conversion set as well! Maybe a lil' bit cutting and modelling will make them look as good as the regular Ork boy version, as mentioned in my previous post here

I guess its a much better bargain for £15.00 / ~USD22.95 (5 Kommandoes,1 Kommando Nob) compared to the metal GW's one (4 Kommandoes, 1 Kommando Nob) which retails at £22.50 / USD37.85 (~£20.00 or USD31.89 with discount from other stores). The only difference is that the GW's Kommando Nob looks cooler with the Power Klaw, a grot and a cigar.

With the price difference of ~£7.00 / USD9.00 and one extra Kommando, I'd rather get this over the GW one. Buying the extra bits won't cost that much anyways. Plus with the Gas masks and Night Vision goggles, they seemed more suited to run with GW's Snikrot model, which also has similar type of goggles :

GW should stop making metal Ork elites like Tankbustas and Kommandos altogether since they cost so much, and its a nightmare to convert and model metal figures. HQ's maybe OK to be metal to distinguish themselves as important units...but heck, I prefer all of them to be plastic. See how many Ork players kustomize their AOBR plastic Warboss, Deffkopta and Nobz to their imagination. All plastic Ork releases in the future please! Ork players usually like to konvert and remodel their stuff, and by making them plastic I'm very sure the sales figure of those sets will go up too.

Wanna go pre-order your FW Kommando today? :P
