We "AAAAARRRRRGH" A Go For Freebooter Pirate 40K Orks

I've been hitting a a real wall with painting my dwarves lately. The rank and file troops just get so boring to paint over and over again.

I've decided that to spice things up I'd start painting my Orks again.

I'd seen a picture of some Freebooter "Pirate" Orks the other day and I really liked the look and feel of them. I've worked up a 500 point list and I'm hoping that by mixing up armies that I can keep myself interested in painting armies and not just single models.

Yay for magnetizing!

I know that that the whole pirate ork thing has been done before and I'll be using some peoples ideas for certain things but the whole point of this project is to just have fun and to keep myself motivated. I'm going to try ordering a few conversion bitz from

When I get my package in I'll try and do a review post so that anyone that's interested can get my opinion of their product.

Mini Vacation

I didn't get much painting done over the weekend because well... I wasn't home!!! I was able to get the family out of the house and we took an ultra-cheap weekend vacation to Atlantic City.

Just a few shots from our balcony on the 19th floor...

I did however get one model completed the other day though! I picked this anime style model a LONG time ago. It was nice to get away from the dwarves and paint something a little different.

I signed up for a painting challenge on the Bartertown forums. It's just a little friendly competition to try to help some members get their armies painted up throughout the year. At the end of the year the member with the most points wins... NOTHING except for bragging rights.

I haven't been to my local FLGS in ages. I really need to get down there and hang out for a bit.

Also on a side note... My new webcam SUCKS. I think that I may take my monthly hobby allowance and get something a little better. Maybe being cheap wasn't the way to go.
