Before the Age of Strife, there existed a Terran nation called Merica that defeated all of its foes with overwhelming Dakka. Since Orks only copy da best, I present you with the AmeriKlan/M’orika Orks.
This is what $20,000 Warhammer 40k army looks like.
Most of the Legio Gryphonicus Maniple will be on display at War Room Hobbies in Memphis and will on tour at Siegeworld in St. Louis on August 10th and 11th as part of the World Record for the largest Warhammer game ever. They are expecting to get over 1 million points of models on the tabletop (these guys represent 30,000 points).
Around 200 hours of painting when into this massive project. Luckily I did not have to do most of the assembly (shout out to Rio at Nightmare Faction Studio and Maxwell H. for helping with that) besides gluing together the sub-assemblies after painting. Over 1,000 parts were needed to put these guys together which came out to roughly 100 sub-assemblies for painting. Over $300 of specialist paint (50+ colors) was used to get the final effect.
Individual photos of these God-engines are coming soon and stay tuned for another Maniple this time in Legio Atarus colors.
Also shout out to my friend Michael S. for custom printing the banners. Shoot me a PM for his info if you want any custom flag work done. Also thanks to Ben G. for letting me borrow his mat for the photos ;)
House Malinax Prepares to defend a secret mechanicum facility from an Imperial task force.
This table was painted for Evolution Games in Fort Worth. The challenge was to do it in 24 hours. Everything was already assembled by them; I just did the painting. I went for a rusted and abandoned look without using pigments since they would come off during play. I tried to do a lot of muted colors that would detract from models put ontop without looking too boring. The pits of skulls are filled with blood that the Dark Mechanicum seems to be collecting for their nefarious purposes (a pit of skulls filled with blood just seemed like a very 40k thing).
