Project - VIETNORK
I was having a rummage the other day, like all gamers do, through my odds and sodds, and boxes of long forgotten models, when I came across a box of 40k Orks. Now 40k is not my cup-of-tea and I only came to own these models after helping a friend out by lending him some money... long story short, 'neither a lender or a borrower be', when my friend was having trouble paying back the money he said "Do you want my 40k Ork army instead??"
I should have said "No", but what is a friend to do? I said "Sure, no problem..." and so they have sat in a box for the last umpteen years, alone, unused and forgotten.
Until the other day.
Im not a 40k player, but I fancied a change from painting historicals, and so I thought I would try something a little different with this army and mix two periods - 40k, and the Vietnam War!
The idea of Vietnork was born!
Over the course of the next few weeks I will be adding to this army, painting sections at a time, and posting the report here as well as on my facebook page, charting my progress and hopefully giving you hints and tips on how to paint 40k Orks.
At the end of this project the Army will be for sale. I am open to offers as we progress, or will list it on Ebay once its complete.
More blogs to come real soon on this project, or for now you can head over to my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1275313348) for sneak peeks at more photos.
