The Joys of Shopping

On Saturday Sarah and I went shopping and ended up in a shop called Home Sense, it is a derivative of TXMaxx but only sells home wares. As I walked through the aisles of china and glass I found these horrible metal representations of a WW2 fighter. I laughed at its cranky and silly style attempting to be a classic British Fighter.

Then my 40K brain kicked in and I realised this was an Orky Fighter already to go. The cockpit opens so I can put orks in and there is plenty of room for rokkits, big shootas and the compulsory Grot hanging off the side!

All of this, pre painted and metal for a staggering £12.99

Bargain and will fit nicely with the Speed Freaks army

The Grey Knight you see there is merely for scale purposes and plays no part in my fledgling Ork Force

What the..? Is it a plane? Is it a banana with a propeller stuck on the end?

That's possibly the worst rendition of a WW2 fighter I've ever seen: judging by the paint scheme I'm guessing it's supposed to be a P-40 Warhawk/Tomahawk but, erm, really not sure!

On the other hand it looks absolutely ideal as an Ork Fighter! Can't wait to see it all done up with Orky goodness.

Tally ho! Chocks away! Tora tora!

Just beautiful. Watch out for it in an Ap-ork-alypse game near you soon...
