The Badfangs - Bonesplitterz of Aqshy.

Recommended Posts

The Badfangs - Bonesplitterz of Aqshy. 

The Badfangs are Bonesplitterz orruks from the dry and windswept Uzmorgarg plains in the wilds of Aqshy.

Wurrgog Prophet Hogrog Ug Weirdklaw

Loaded up with the most potent and powerful of the magic bones his tribe has found, Hogrog has set out into the Realms, leading the Badfangs to hunt down the wild magic of Endless Spells. He has been empowered by the revelation that they are made of the essence of Gorkamorka, and their power can be captured and harvested, just like the power contained within other monsters' bones and teeth.

Wardokk Krogdak

Krogdak is Hogrog's acolyte, attendant and advisor. He is as mad as an angry Maw-Krusha and leads one of Hogrog's Morboyz mobs. Krogdak is adept at the grimdokk dance, and able to reattach severed limbs and knit flesh-wounds back together. He has patched-up more mangled Orruks than he can count (which sounds a lot less impressive than it actually is).

I plan on a Skirmish warband of a Wurrgog Prophet, 2 Wardokks, 3 Savage Orruks with Chompa and Shield, 10 Savage Orruk Morboys with Chompa and Toof Shiv, 3 Savage Orruk Arrerboys with Stinga Bows and Chompa, and 2 Savage Orruks with a Big Stabber.

I may add a few Forest Goblins I have in my bitz boxes, just for a bit of variety.

These look pretty cool ! 

The "patchy" paint job is really interesting in that it's super simple but still manages to look cool and detailed for some reason, it suits them really well. I like their backstory too. ?

Hope you keep posting the rest of the warband.

Thanks! I was going for "painterly" ;) 

I will keep updating this thread but the warband has been pushed down the painting queue a little bit by other projects. I'll get back to it as soon as I can :D

Wow! What are these miniatures?
Those are the best Ork shamen I have seen
(and I happen to have a thing about Ork shamen, so I've seen quite a few over the years...)

Top one is a weirdnob shaman with a mask. Bottom appears to be a normal Savage Orruk with altered weapons and a skull mask.

The Badfangs are Bonesplitterz orruks from the dry and windswept Uzmorgarg plains in the wilds of Aqshy. The tribe has an oral tradition, myths and legends that have long been told and retold, passed down through the years, of their time as travellers among the stars. They believe that in an age long ago they roamed the cosmos, they were not natives of Aqshy but they came from some other, unremembered Realm. They chased god-beasts across the void, riding in the belly of a creature they called the void-whale, but they crashed into the Great Parch by accident while the void-whale was battling another god-beast.

In some versions of the stories the void-whale was killed by the other god-beast, in other versions the Bonesplitterz accidentally killed it from inside in an ill-considered attempt to get at the god-beast that was attacking it.

Whichever version they believe, they all agree that in the crash they lost their ability to travel the cosmos and they were stranded. They are not trying to return to those days by any means, but they carry with them a sense of adventure that continues the tradition of travelling, exploring and finding new monsters to defeat.

They have made their home, and found plenty of beasts to fight, in Aqshy and they usually return there after each foray into the wild. So, loaded up with the most potent and powerful of the magic bones his tribe has found, Wurrgog Prophet Hogrog Ug Weirdklaw has set out into the Realms, leading the Badfangs to hunt down the wild magic of Endless Spells. He has been empowered by the revelation that they are made of the essence of Gorkamorka, and their power can be captured and harvested, just like the power contained within other monsters' bones and teeth.

Wardokk Urgog

Urgog carries the skulls of former rivals. He always ignores their whispered advice but that doesn’t seem to shut them up, much to his annoyance.

Thanks everyone! :D 

@snakeappletree yep,  @kenshin620 is exactly right. They are all GW orruk models, only the Shaman was not a Bonesplitterz model originally. I have added masks to all of them with leftovers from other kits and greenstuff.

There are loads more coming (as I want to use them for Warcry!) but it will be a while before I get to them though as I have other projects ahead of them in my painting queue.
