Ghazghkull Thraka, Ork Warlord

The universe in Warhammer 40.000 is dark, a gloomy place where warlords fight among themselves for the little that remains of the Imperium. Ghazghkull Thraka is the biggest ork warlord, is a prophet of the Waagh! Giye bring to us a Ghazghkull Thraka, a Games Workshop figure, painted by him.

Orks always cach the eye, the greenskin  are really big an bestials. Play with them in Warhammer Fantasy or Warhammer 40.000 is always fun! even when you lost!! Orks become into Warhammer 40.000 since the beginning of the time, and they really needed a figure like Ghazghkull Thraka.

Warhammer 40.000, orks have been getting bigger since Warhammer Old School times.

A lots has happened even since Ghazghkull Thraka Citadel first figure. Suber, from La La Armada, wrote about the old Games Workshop miniature in his blog OldSchoolWorkshop. This figue, who looks like a mongolian warrior, brings to us good memories of when we started to play. Remember that Makari was the “loyal” banner who always stays with Ghazghkull Thraka.

The new Games Workshop figure of Ghazghkull Thraka is an excellent model and put on his throne again. A new look for this phropet of the Waargh, equipied with a mega armour, the bigger power klaw that we have  never seen and a Dakka Dakka gun!

Ghazghkull Thraka was first Giye Finecast figure.

To paint Ghazghkull Thraka, Giye used a lots lively colours.

The starting point was basecoating, he used red fundation. For layering: red blood, fiery orange  and vomit brown.

The skin was covered with Catachan green and layering with vomit brown and bleached bone.

And this is the result!

Now that Ghazghkull Thraka is done, Giye is thinking about get more ork figures, but no only by Games Workshop! Soon he will be able to play Warhammer 40.000 with a new greenskins Waaagh!
