Bringing Up the Artillery

The horde of Orcs & Goblins I am gathering for Warhammer 3rd Edition has got paint on in its entirety (I’m aiming for a modest 1,500 points under the Warhammer Armies list), but about half still needs to be shaded, highlighted and detailed. Buoyed by the thrill of finally seeing the boar riders finished, I took aim at my second artillery piece.

The Orc Spear Chukka had been in painting limbo the longest by far. The bolt thrower itself has been in my possession for decades and it has seen service with a variety of armies. Eventually I acquired some of the Orc crew to go with it, so it is now a fixed part of their artillery. The commander originally belongs to the Rock Chukka of the same series.

    • Thanks! I am very happy with them too. Every time I return to my greenskins after a couple of months off, their complexion is a bit different. Mostly, I see that as a good thing though!
