Armageddon Ork Hunters are elite Astra Militarum (Imperial Guard) units that specialize in jungle and guerrilla warfare. Ork Hunter regiments were formed in the wake of the Second Armageddon War, to deal with the Ork populations in the equatorial jungle regions of the planet. The Ork Hunters are a brutal and wild lot, adopting many of the customs and manners of the Orks they hunt; they are notorious for using captured Ork weapons, preferring the sheer noise and devastating firepower caused by the Ork guns.

I finished ‘kit bashing’ three more Armageddon Ork Hunters, using components from the Catachan Jungle Fighters and Ork Boyz plastic kits. As with the previous batch of Ork Hunters (please see part 2 for more details), I painted a ‘tiger stripe’ jungle camouflage pattern on the Ork Hunters’ combat fatigues and green warpaint on their flesh.
