Orktober Hyborks

As usual at the coo's tail - as we say in Scotland - my contribution to Orctober!

Enthused by theottovonbismark's modern Hyborks I decided to build a ork mob based on the Freebooters in WD135. I tend to agree with those in the facebook group about the style of the painting so was casting about for inspiration. I was looking at the dioramas in WD when I spotted the one by Mike McVey in WD114, and lo and behold GREEN stealers!. So if it's good enough for him who am I to argue.

This is the start of the mob more of the later generations to follow and later modern ones - if that's allowed.

I've always felt that more cross species types would occur with Tyranids so why not hybork gaunts? Then there's this mob who really do it well especially the grot hybrids.

Added a new Hybork while working on other types he's a sort of equivalent to the abberant in the current stealer cults. He is seen with the mobs pet squigg.
