New Work Board

Picked up a new cutting board since my old one cracked on me while I was trying to get it flattened out again.  I guess 10 years is long enough.

I have added magnets to the buildings and covered them in glue.  I will be able to make all sorts of little trophies and barricades to add metal bits to and toss against the magnets.  Here is a test piece.

Small Settlement

It only took about an hour of work to get the first 2 buildings assembled.  They do not yet show age or attack damage, and won't until I decide how far I want to take it.  Damaging the buildings is a tougher decision than I thought.  Of course there is also no reason to paint them until I decide what I really want to do with them.  But here are the first 2 Ork huts main floors only.

Start with some History

Gramooch Metalsmasha at this point is still a minor Warboss with little more than 300 Orks beneath him.  He first gained notoriety out on the plains of Trivantic prime, the planet they currently call home, during the Humans is fightin back campaign of Warboss Snagglethorn.  Gramooch was no more than a tankbusta at that time, but he was destined for greatness.

During the fighting he managed to get several tankbusta bombs on the softer side of a baneblade.  This lead to earning his own small command after the baneblade exploded in a shower of debris that included bits of Warboss Snagglethorn.  It was this same incident that sparked the friendship between Regrak Umiebutcha and Gramooch, having pulled the surviving half of Regrak out from under that very same baneblade.

Gramooch and Regrak set their sights to the desert, and along with about 30 Orks they headed deep into that wasteland.  After nearly a month of walking around in circles, Shaman Shaak Izfis noticed a series of ancient buildings, at least 50 years old.  Shaak told Gramooch and Regrak that Gork had set this small city here for Gramooch to rest before starting a WAAAAAGH! across the galaxy.

Push for the Future

I dedicate this blog to the hard working and harder fighting Orks of Gramooch Metalsmasha's WAAAAAGH!, in their never ending quest for a place where all Orks are created equally mean, belligerent, and tuff as teef.
