Orks + armours + weathering effects = the perfect plan for me. I had in mind this idea for months, a big scale Warhammer 40000 ork, but obviously, it´s impossible to buy one. If you want to paint one, you need sculpting skills or use a previous sculpt and make a conversion. I chose this last option.

I used as a base for the conversion the superb ork sculpted by my italian friend Carmine "thor" Giugliano, based on the Paul Bonner´s artwork. In the moment that I saw for the first time, I imagined a Warhammer 40000 ork with a big armor like Ghazghkull Thraka, so I drew some sketches and I started to work in the conversion. I used plasticard and some bits and as you can see, a very little amount of putty. I need to start to learn some sculpting techniques because the work with the plasticard is too slowly, tedious and difficult.

The ork is very very big. For your reference, the war staff is 18 cm. (7 in.) tall. The size of the figure have complicated the painting, and I didn´t feel comfortable with the painting in any moment.

Fantastic high contrast paint job and the sculpt/conversion is spot on! Love this piece.

Great work, I've not seen Ork armour like that before and I like it. You do get the impression, looking at the picture, that the armopur won't stay in such good repair for long... Very cool indeed, an original
