Preparing for the New Ork Codex: A Megaboss, Objective Markers, and a Morkanaut

Meet my new Mega Armor Warboss,  Koop da Krusha, Bringa' ov da Stomp. Greenstuff bellies are fun. He needs to lay off the fungus beer.

His large belly was a canvas that screamed for a silly tattoo. Thus, "Baus Lyfe" was born.

I haphazardly put my Morkanaut together before the new codex because I was so excited for the kit. It as a very early birthday gift from a friend. I decided to be conservative and pin the KFF, which was easy, but I wasted the Kustom Mega Kannon because it looks to be better than the Morkanaut gun since the high Strength, AP 2, and blast all are weapon traits that are valuable to orks.

As, you can see there is a nice circle all ready marked in the Morkanaut's body where you can drill a hole for a pin. Also, that little nub between the 2 legs on the front face of the KFF is fairly close to center on it, so I just eyeballed this pin job, like a proppa ork.

Finally, I made some easy to see objective markers for the Maelstrom missions. You  need something very visible since you will always be checking the number of an objective, so I went with the banners. I am going to number them 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and Lots. I little dip in the bitz box spice them up nicely, and I paved a way in the pumice basing for the Mysterious Objective die to sit securely.
