With the excitement of being in this week’s White Dwarf magazine dying down, it’s back to work on project 2nd edition. While the Space Marines in the picture above come to a scratchy, bitey death at the hands of these untrustworthy grots, I also come to the end of painting all 40 Gretchin from the 2nd edition Warhammer 40,000 box set. This is a big milestone and I’m pleased to have ticked this part of the project off of the list. More pictures after the jump.
The last ten Grots featured red sleeves to help break up the monotony of the same pose sculpts.
All 40 complete and ready for the Armageddon Wars. Just 20 Orks, a Ork Dreadnought and the ruins left to paint. I think I’ll work on them in this order. 20 Orks, then the dreadnought and finally the terrain pieces I made. Completing the 20 Orks next will be a big milestone, because that will mean all 80 models included in the box will be complete! Watch this space.
I'm starting to feel the struggle with the 20 orks to be honest. Assembling them was quite possibly the dullest thing I've ever done in the hobby.
Dull or not they look amazing all done. The checks, dags and wavy bits on the sleeves help a lot. Really like your skin. Keep it up Garfy!
They look really nice together and well done for not going crazy. Congrats also for the White Dwarf article 🙂

You're a machine, man. This makes me wish I'd kept all the pieces from my second edition kit! Looking forward to the un-cardboard Dreadnought for sure.
So, I take it you're going to repaint the Ork Dreadnaught that comes in the 2nd Ed. box? Haha! 🙂 Just kidding!
Have you seen this post?
Yes. I was just joking with you on the dreadnought because the 2nd Ed. box comes with a cardboard standee of the Ork dreadnought. 🙂 Congrats on finding a MIB Ork dread! Hope it didn't cost an arm and a leg! Can't wait to see it painted!
£30 all in. Not too shabby really. I have a WIP post of the Ork Dreadnought scheduled for blog showing it assembled. Can't wait to start painting it!
