Morkananut Refit

The Ork refit rolls on. Now it's time for a version-change for my Gorkanaut.
I'm just going to say it: The Gorkanaut is a poor choice compared to the Morkanaut.
It's mostly down to the Kustom Force Field, but that is huge. I also prefer a main weapon that can hurt other vehicles.

After playing a pair of games using my Gorkanaut as a Morkanaut. I was sold on the Morkanaut and it was time to stop living a lie and do the surgery!

Fortunately I had kept the unused parts and was able to easily add the Kustom Force Field, and swap out the Skorcha for a Kustom-Blasta. Trading the Deffstorm shooty gun for the Kustom Mega-Blaster turned out to be zoggin' impossible.

Fine. I'll make my own. I have enough cool looking Kustom parts from other Orky kits, so after an evening of formulatin' I took the parts from four different kits and made this:
It painted up nicely and I attached directly to the shoulder mount.

I dare say I like it better than the version that comes with the kit. More dangerous science-fiction  looking.

Orks in The Sky

I am in middle of re-doing my Orks to bring them in line with 8th edition, and it's been pretty enjoyable. This week, the Ork Air Force reborn!

I had a pair of Bomma when they first came out a couple(many) years ago. But as with most models that get used and moved around, bad things happen. Dust, breakages, poorly applied decals fall off, the works. The Wazbom Blastjet was released and I picked one up, mostly because I really like the new "H" tail. It sat on the shelf for a few years, but it's time has finally come around at last.

I built it like a "normal" Ork bomma, with lots of gunz, rockets, and bombs.

My two older Fighter/bommerz got cleaned up, repaired, and got new decals put on correctly (using the Micro-Set System). I should have taken a few shot of them for the "before" pics, it was pretty bad.

Now all three are ready to provide some close air support for the Goff Hordes.
