Yesterday, I mentioned a veritable slew of projects that I’ve got in the works, and finished with a note about my expanding gaggle of Orks (that rhymes).
While you will likely have heard me blather on about Dr. Dakkasteef and his Teeftotallers before today, specifically with regard to their growing prominence among my Special Operations Killzone Teams, about half of the following will be new to the diligent reader.
Skarvald. Here’s why.
The wildly faithful reader might remember that I mentioned bumping in to a friend of mine, Joe, at AdeptiCon last year. He was competing in the team tournament with a great group of guys, and with a really inspiring assortment of Orks. In that army, Joe and Skarvald had mixed Ork Nobz bits with Big Orcs or Black Orcs (?) bits from WFB. For me, this was one of those moments when the lightbulb clicks on. -ting-
The combination of the Nob and Orc kits not only offers some brilliant modeling opportunities and some really quirky Nobz, but also allows the attentive modeler a chance to stretch the few Nobz from that kit into a much more numerous assembly. Let nothing go to waste! It’s an idea made of win. Thank you, Joe. Thank you, Skarvald.
Well. Here’s how the Teeftotallers stack up as of today:
Dr. Dakkasteef –Meganob with Refractor Field.
Fankz –Nob with Big Choppa and the Resilient Skill upgrade.
Burna Boy –as yet unnamed, with Medipak.
2 Nobz –chosen for their resemblance to the good Dr. D (eye and teeth specifically).
3 Gretchin –I had a few leftover points.
5 Ork ‘Ard Boyz –one of whom also sports a comely Big Shoota.
That’s 224 points worth of Ork Warband ready for action. Both Wednesday and Friday, I will detail the (now completed) remaining two Warbands/Teams. Yes. Two. Gutgrope Grotshank’s Warband, the Shanksies, and Aldo Rezta’s Wardand, D’Arreztas.(terrible, I know).
p.s. I can't help but feel that at least one of these little Grots should be shouting "hiiiiigh nooon."
