Several years ago I started an ork army for Warhammer 40,000. I’d always really liked orks, but had been out of the game for almost a dozen years. I figured it was time to collect some greenskins, and I chose to go with Bad Moons because I wanted to challenge myself in learning how to paint yellow. Fast forward a couple of years and a terrible 7th edition codex, and I shelved my orks in favor of Alpha Legion and 30K.
Well, a few days ago Games Workshop released the new edition of Warhammer 40K, and orks appear to be a viable army again with the new rules. I broke out my miniatures and began painting. The airbrush certainly helped make painting yellow easier, and as a result I now have various kits and partially assembled ork walkers scattered all over my office. I’m really looking forward to getting in more games; the few I’ve played so far have been a lot of fun. What are your thoughts on the new edition?
I’m really excited about the hobby again, and it’s going to be a blast getting more orks painted up and onto the battlefield.
