Starting off, I dug through a bag of extra metal orks I have and found the original Runtherd and an 'ere we go! era Mekboy. These two are definitely going into the mob!
I really liked the Gorkamorka range of grots but never got any. Looking on ebay, it doesn't make any sense to pay those kind of prices and the current plastics will suffice perfectly and I get that plastic Runtherd with the squighound which I like a lot. So I splurged and got it from a local game store.
Digging through my boxes of blister packs I came across some Gorkamorka packs that I was saving for future Ork projects. Including some yoofs and another Mekboy!
...and a bunch of weapons:
Also there are these guys:
That's a mutie gang! I bought these guys on clearance at Games Day '99 in Baltimore. They have been patiently waiting for their time to shine, and maybe this is it? We'll see but for now I am putting them back into storage. And yes, GW used to use the word "clearance" along with the word "sale". Which is why I have 3 boxed sets of Gorkamorka in which to build up this ork mob in addition to some of the things above. So if you want to see what I make out of all of this, just stay tuned for future updates...
