While much of Original post/thread is outdated (4th Ed. and Old Codex) I decided to revive it for the sake of continuity, and because others might be interested in the Army's Evolution.
When I was introduced to the world of 40K (a long time ago) I had a thing for Orks.
The original Dough Boyz...
The Dough Boyz started as a not-so-subtle "F**k You" to the German/Nazi themed armies that I seem to be encounter all too often. Unfortunately, at the time my conversion/painting skills, (not to mention patience) were not up to the task of converting a 150+ model count army. And as such the boyz were eventually banished(mostly unpainted) to the closet.
Since then I have built, painted, and sold, no less than 5 armies, and with a new Codex finally within reach I think it's time to give Da Boyz a proper go.
It is with that thought in mind that I present "DA UBA-STOMPY MAURADA CORPS" or USMC
