Hey all. I've just finished working on my Flash Gitz today and thought I'd share what I've painted.
This guy is an homage to the gun manufacturer Torgue from Borderlands. The gun is painted in the Livery of the "Kerblaster", a gun that fires explosive rockets instead of mundane bullets. Scratchbuilding a gun to resemble the in-game model was beyond my skill so I settled for a paintjob. https://vignette.wik...=20121004195044
This second guy was originally going to be the Kaptin until the Tork guy managed to look more flash than him. I've converted the Bosspoles to resemble axes since the rest of my army are Blood Axes through and through. These guys? They are well on their way to becoming Freebootas, but haven't got kicked out of the Boss' camp. Yet.
This guy's gun confuses me. The third barrel doesn't connect to the magazines properly so I am not sure how that part of the gun works. Perhaps there's a tiny tellyporta in there shunting bullets into the chamber? Maybe it's an example of Anzion's theory in action? Perhaps it's just a flash bit to make the gun appear to have more Dakka than it really does? You decide.
This guy has a pretty zappy looking Snazzgun. Behind the gun the Ork has a bionic leg. Coincidence? Probably not.
Noting special about this guy other than the fact that he appears to have pinched half the klan's bullets to make this beast work. He will probably run out of ammo in about four seconds.
Here's the whole lot of 'em. As always, click on the pictures for larger images.
I hope you found this entertaining. I'm not sure what I'm going to paint next in my Ork army but a box of Imperial Knights is looming over my painting table menacingly so that's probably my next task. It'll give my Morkanaut something to butt heads with.
