Stormstealer Mob

Following on from the last post I have completed another 4 Stormstealers to bring the unit up to 5 models.

They took a wee bit longer to paint than you might think due to the large surface area covered by the models, all those extra arms don’t help one bit either.  In hindsight I would paint the jump packs off the model and glue when both the ork and jump pack were painted fully.  It’s a bit like painting a unit of cavalry due to the different approach on the two main elements.

I envisioned these guys screaming in like barrage of claws from a blue sky so I figured it apt to base the colour scheme loosely WWII Luftwaffe Stuka dive bombers.

I decided to go for lots of weathering on the more armoured and vehicular elements of the models with a fair bit of rusting on the weapons.  I don’t see Hyborks as being the most keen on weapon maintenance, more likely they would just fire out the magazine and then hit you with the empty gun I expect.

Flyborks....

Flyborkz….

The boots on these guys are quite fun being designed for landing on panzee ‘Oomanz and the like.  They got a bit of stirland mud on them to give the impression of messy landings as they erratically jump their way across the battlefield.

So that’s one more unit down, this battleforce is starting to shape up now.  I want to get enough units done now to field a force for The Men Who Would be Kings.  I would like to get moving on adding a unit of Wildboyz to this lot along with some Nobz and a Wierdboss Psychic character to lead them.

  1. This capricious band of hybrid monsters pleases me greatly. I wish to see more of your brain-fruits ripening in this satisfying way. You definitely need some big ladz to keep those others in line (or at least point them in the general direction of the claw-work). Keep going 😀

  2. Awesome stuff there M8!

  3. Really cool and great painting 🙂

  4. Really fond of these guys, I have to say the guy holding a missile is especially cool but the whole group is just brilliant.

  5. These are really great Otto.

    In terms of TMWWBK I reckon that these guys will be cavalry in rules terms as well as guidelines for approaching them for painting.

    I’m looking forward to a few games soon 🙂

  6. Great work, and I particularly like the one throwing the old school hunter-killer missile.
