In da beginnin' dere wuz da shootaz

Alright, so here we go with first of the posts that detail all the stuff I've finished so far. I'm gonna space those out so that they cover the period of time left until I'm done with this semester and can dig into hobbying proper.

Those are the first fifteen boyz that I've finished. Didn't really have a clear goal in mind, except for some shootas and maybe 'eavy armour and I played around that with conversions and such, slowly figuring out how to get stuff done, etc. They were mostly a test-bed and training grounds for everything, from cutting stuff up and removing mould lines to working with plasticard and reposing and so on.

'ere we go! - introductory post

Woooo, got the template roughly figured out as far as colours and stuff go. You can probably tell I'm pretty bad at this and I, as a design student, should be ashamed of such a rampant lack of web design skills. Alas, I am not.

Nobody cares anyway, so let's get to the good stuff.

Orkz. Specifically the focus of this blog, my (atrociously) slowly growing army, Da Wazgarg Rokkaz. The name was conceived using that old ork glyph chart thing and boils down to two main components: Waz - synonym for the colour red, also meaning speed, excitement and fright. One of the more common glyphs nowadays, it's the arrow thingy.
The other one is Garg, less known as it's just a square shape. Means huge, terrifying, noisy and powerful. Sounds pretty good for what I intend to be a mix of Goffz and Evil Sunz, leaning heavily towards Kult uv Speed. Goffs to represent a penchant for 'eavy muziks (hence the Rokkaz part) and Evil Sunz for the speed-crazy petrolhead aspect of my take on the greenskins.

'ello? Dis 'ere fing, 'z it workin'?

Oi guyz! 'ow do you use deze zoggin' interwarpz?

So yeah, after almost two years of putting together little plastic orkz at a snail's pace, I decided to start a blog so that I have a place where I can spam as many updates and pictures as I damn well please.

The sole purpose of this post is to give me one so that I can tweak the template and whatnot. Expect a proper introductory post soon. Not that anyone is even gonna stumble upon this stump of a blog anyway. Not before I shamelessly push it into the faces of all the renowned people 'round here, begging for recognition and such.

Oh, and have a picture.
