Ork Shokk Attakk Gun

It’s Wednesday again, and so I owe you guys another contribution on an older effort! Seeing as how my previous Ork stuff was well-received, I decided to give you another of these greenskins, and one of my favourite models of theirs too: the Shokk Attakk Gun.

I say 'Shokk Attakk Gun' instead of 'Big Mek with Shokk Attakk Gun'... you get the point.

Of course, I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Citadel Finecast again. It was better than some of the horror stories I could tell you (there’s one about five boxes of Vampire Count Blood Knights that were opened to produce one complete well-cast unit) but still not exactly perfect, with bubbles, lots of flash etc. I normally would’ve shied away from Finecast, but I really wanted this model.

This guy wasn't easy to paint because of the many overhanging parts he has.

As per usual, I used nothing but washes on the guy. I purposely painted him to the same tabletop quality as the rest of the force, as I am a firm believer of ‘one method’ – every model in an army should receive the same amount and level of attention so that it doesn’t stick out but clearly belongs to the force. I could’ve given this model the paintjob it truly deserves, but then my other Orks would look jealous!

I imagine what kind of noise this thing would make.

This isn’t the only Big Mek I have lying around, there’s also a metal model (hurrah!) that’s still in its blister waiting to receive some attention. However, that guy will have to wait a fair bit longer as I am currently not really in the mood for any 40k painting. I’ve done a quick tally of how many models I’ve purchased this year starting from January, and have come to a figure of 385 models of which 92 have received a paintjob, excluding commissions. I’m going to have to do my best to clear that backlog before Crisis ’13 in November…
