You probably won't remember this (because those entries were expunged from the blog's archives long ago), but when I started this blog I used to talk about my 40k dream project: A plastic army inspired in the classic Paul Bonner's illustrations from Waaargh The Orks, 'Ere we go! and Freebooterz. My plan was using modern GW bits mixed with independent companies resin bits (before 3d printing was a thing).
But I ended abandoning that idea (after I hoarded A LOT of sprues and resin bags), frustrated by the fact that no one made those funny long faces, the silly runts or the more minimalistic mega armour (and don't let me start with the Freebooterz; GW put the occasional pirate bit here and there, but they were mostly regular big orks at that moment).
So, imagine my amazement when my friend Décimo shared this picture with me:
I couldn't believe that even existed. One of the most legendary illustrations from the Ork Golden Age made miniatures. Amazing.
So then I started asking questions (and for that I mean screaming and texting everyone), and I found the author's Patreon: Trollet Miniatures.
And that was the fastest Patreon subscription I've ever clicked. No regrets.
The whole project turns around our favourite classic illustrations and making those fun lads into real miniatures. Blood Axe Kommandos? Got 'em. Nobs? Them too. Badass bikerz? There's 4 of those. And every one of them looks like Bonner's art.
But this month's posts are even better. Do you remember this Madboyz full page art?
Yeah, he did that:
If you want to see those two orks throwing punches to each other you must join his Patreon. Sorry, I don't make the rules.
Meanwhile, if you want to buy the rest of them, check his store on MyMiniFactory (there's a 50% discount code for the Patreon subscribers).
I'll be printing and painting them in 15mm scale for my #15mm40k project, but they are awesome in 28mm. I promise to post some images of the building and painting process as soon as I receive the prints from my friend.
See you soon!
PS: I couldn't resist posting this one. Look at this beauty of a biker...
