So as promised here are the shots of my stormboyz unit so far. I have five fully painted along with Wazzarukk the Nob, I have a further 4 assembled in my case so I can use the unit and then thanks to an eBay purchase I have 4 more in bits undercoated ready to paint and the remaining 3 from the ebay lot in a baggy stripped of paint and un-assembled. This allowed me to paint up the last four for the ten Boy unit without the need to proxy anything while I do.
I originally acquired my first 12 Boyz and Wazzarukk as part of the same large eBay batch that the stack of trucks came in. While I do like the new plastic minies they have one flaw in my eyes, stormboyz are meant to be strangely disciplined and regimental for Orks. The new plastics are just to varied to convey that feeling, so I've been scavenging round EBay again recently to bolster my supplies for a full unit of 20 boyz with the added bonus I could have these 6 models finished 4 on the painting forge and still have 4 unpainted ones to play with.
With the disciplined theme in mind I've painted the boyz up in matching colours, unlike my Slugga mob they all have black boots, read trousers and a kommando khaki top. In addition I've painted all weapon glyphs with simple green and red chevrons and each of the boyz has a stormboy glyph on the frount of the fule tank.
To denopte that they are all in Wazzaruk's unit they all have his rokkitpack Glyph on their helmets (Wazza - the glyph for speed)
My favoutie of these is the Shark face boy and it certainly made finish off the models more intresting, I think haveing something to look forward to when batch painting realy helps move things along. For me chosing what Glyphs I'm going to use is that part on most of my Orks, but for the storm boys since all the helment Glyphs, weapon Glyphs and the boot on the fule tank is the same having the large nose cone details to do helped me finish them
With Easter weekend I may not get much posted, but next week I'll bring you my battle report against Dave's Imperial Guard that I'm playing tonight. for now though it's lunch time...
