Not at all! I think it made total sense. You don't want to go overboard on a scheme because it'll be both hard to paint, and hard to look at. You also don't want it to be too uniform, since then it won't be Orky. I've been pretty conscious about using 3 main camo patterns across the army and it's helped a lot.

I wasn't really feeling the stock Tankbustas and their limited poses, so I made up my own. I used a bunch of leftover rokkits from my boyz kits, as well as some kustom rokkits I made using the kombi-rokkit bits from the Meganobz kit combined with some cut up burnas from the Burna/Loota kit. I'm really happy with the results, and it also let me use up some of the extra kommando/loota heads I had lying around to make a unique unit! There's only 7 right now since I actually ran out of Ork bodies, but I plan to have the unit go up to 9 strong and have them tool around with a mek in a looted wagon.

Love the tankbustas! I couldn't agree more about the limits of the tankbusta sculpts. Love the weapons, but hate the poses! I think you did a great job keeping the tankbusta theme and making a unique set of models for the unit. I never would have thought of using the Burnas to get such cool rokkit models! Great job!

Thanks! As a bonus, the burna bits go for real cheap on ebay, so this is a pretty affordable alternative to the awkwardly posed Tankbustas.

I have tons of ork torsos if you need them. And arms. Holy Gork (or possibly Mork), do I have arms.

It's the legs I run out of.

It's humid as hell, so I've been turning to models I already had primed. I've had Ghazzy primed for months now, and I just broke him out and painted him up in an evening:

That's still one of the best Ork models ever... Looks great!
