I am proud to say I finally have enough of an ork army to be brave enough to post it here.

 

Hope you like it, overall theme is flying machines, specifically triplanes (deffkopta conversions) and zeppelins (chinork warkopta transports)!

The zeppelin corps, from left to right: the Morkon (or was it the Gorkon?), the Hindenbork II, and the Orkron

Some custom triplane conversions:

One of my two weirdboys, this one has decided to rig up a (stolen) winged contraption to carry him into battle!

Like I said, hope you enjoyed them, this army has been fun to convert and paint in bright, gaudy colors happy.png

 

Lots more pictures in my Army Thread in the ork section of the forum; it includes the humble beginnings of the force and the WIP photos of the triplanes and zeppelins. Cheers!

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

I love it! That's the most orky thing I saw this week, and I say that after having driven around a borrowed truck that was patched up with bakellite sheets, and a big red "GO" button!

Great looking army - did I read that you're using the triplaes as deffkoptas? Why not the actual ork planes?

Yup definitely running those triplanes as deffkoptas. The original triplane (the evil-suns clan one with the red paint and yellow flames) was based on an old Black Reach plastic deffkopta, heavily kustomized and re-engineered with some resin-cast wins I made myself. By my estimates they are (roughly) the same size as a deffkopta, maybe a tad bigger due to the wingspan.

 

I do want to make some actual ork fighters at some point, probably after I buy the actual ork flyer kit, but I need to make something more "world war one" than the current ork flyer. I was thinking of making something that looked like a great big gotha bomber... or maybe a bigger version of my zeppelins? The idea of making a big zeppelin aircraft carrier has a certain orky ring to it biggrin.png
