54mm Ork Kommando (including Kromlech Kaptin Orc review)
« on: March 08, 2017, 12:50:07 PM »
Well when this guy, Kaptin Orc came up for a deal from Kromlech I couldn't resist. I present to you my 54mm Ork Kommando ready to be painted.

As I haven't found any kit photos online here is how he comes. Main problem from our gaming point of view is the left hand is part of the brick wall. It's a cool pose but not really practical for a gaming piece.



Lovely crisp detail.

OK so after some very very careful cutting with a jewellers saw I was able to remove the hand from the wall, but a bit of damage occurred.

Scratch built a slugga and choppa








And then resculpted the hand




And here is the result. A cool model with a big presence. He is not massive, I'd say normal Ork Boy sized, but that suits my plans well.









And size comparisons


Hope you like him, any ideas on paint scheme?

Cheers Aurelius

Dark Green as he's probably tough, and likely to be a Goff Kommando, would be my guess, but YMMV.
Of course, I'm mostly taking that from Armageddon, and the old Kommando metal box set images (I like those little minis).

He has a quite primitive feel about him so I'd suggest painting him as a Snakebite Clan Ork.

There really isn't that much skin to show, and I was thinking fairly muted pale skin (operating far from the Waaagh and all that). But definitely camo pants like the old kommandos

I can see what you are saying about snakebites, but he is wearing a full body suit. Yes the shield is primitive, but chainsword choppa isn't.
I'm thinking some blue warpaint would make him pop regardless

Thanks for the suggestions guys, really haven't seen many Orks around these parts (for obvious reasons I know)
