Khador + Orks =.....KHADORKS!!

Its no secret I like Warmahordes. To me the minis have more character then the most recent 'Dude in power armor with a big sword and fur/spikes/wings/feathers/gophers'.

But, Warmachine does lag behind a bit in the conversion department. For those of us with hte modelling and sculpting skills- whipping up conversions that people see and say 'Oh thats cool!' is like winning the game.

Amongst the 40k conversions I enjoy the most are Orks. Now, Orks have always had a ramshackle appearance, and that just sort of seems to mesh right in with the Steam tech of Warmachine.

Then looking at Khador- and its generally unsubtle heavy armor and HUGE axes, not to mention chainsaw thingies and large loud guns....I realized if Orks did inhabit the Iron Kingdoms- they'd mostly want ot be Khadorans!

So, I acquired some Khador jacks a while back for cheap. And havent known what to do with them- now I do! I have tons of 40k ork bitz, so, once I get my mercs finished (4 jacks, and 3 solos to paint and base, and about 30 guys to base) I'm going to orkify my Khador, and unleash the Khadorks upon the Iron kingdoms :D

So, if anyone out there has some extra khador jacks, notably a juggernaught, berzerkers, man'owars, or any reavers or kommandos- and Karchev- I'd be happy to work out a trade ^_^

Cygnar-ish goodness!

So...Im a lazy poster. Instead of posting up sensible progress pics I just keep painting away and totally ignore you all!

Heres my Trencher Sniper, I didnt think it made sense for them to carry sandbags around to prop the rifle on...so hes using a convenient fallen tree ;)

Heres a nifty and shiny chain gun, problly wont use it much but I like the mini :)

A classic Ironclad with one of my fancy fallen tree bases and a repose conversion. Of course with the new resin kits the pose is no biggie. But I did it with a metal one!

A glance at Seige here. I really like how he came out. I might get some better pics if theres any interest.

And finally a group shot. a dozen or so Trenchers, Chain gun, full Sword Knights + UA, full StormGuard, a Lancer, Ironclad, 2 Chargers, minimum unit of Mechanics, Flinn, Pendrake, Seige, pHaley, and pStryker :)

Future expansions- I have a Defender I need to do up. And a couple Chargers Im going to convert into hunters.

And up soon, my Mercs with their bases done! Im in a baasing mood after having these guys bases turn out so well.
