The Orks, known for their rowdy and brutal nature, have a distinct ruling caste called Nobz. Towering over their fellow Orks, Nobz exude an aura of fear and relish in both cruel and casual acts of violence. These imposing figures lead through their actions, fearlessly diving into the heart of battle, shattering skulls with reckless abandon. In this way, each Nob serves as a sergeant-at-arms, a champion, an oppressor, and a role model for the Boyz under their command.
Contained within this box set are five multi-part plastic Ork Nobz, a true force to be reckoned with. With a staggering 104 pieces, this set offers an array of options for customization. You’ll find 10 distinct head variations, providing a range of menacing expressions. Additionally, there are five different torso-fronts and five body variations, allowing you to assemble a squad with a unique and diverse appearance.
Weaponry options are abundant in this set, ensuring that your Nobz are equipped to unleash havoc on the battlefield. Choose from big choppas, power klaws, shoota/rokkit kombi-weapons, a shoota/skorcha kombi-weapon, sluggas, and choppas.

How to paint the Ork Nobz set
- Step 1: Prime Your Models
Start by applying a thin, even coat of primer to your Ork Nobz models. This will create a smooth surface for painting and help the paint adhere better. Let the primer dry completely before moving on.
- Step 2: Basecoat the skin
Use a brush to apply the base color to the armor of the Ork Nobz. For example, you can use a color like Waaagh! Flesh or Warboss Green. Apply the basecoat evenly, ensuring all the details are covered. Let the paint dry before proceeding.
- Step 3: Highlight the skin
Choose a lighter shade of the base color and use a smaller brush to highlight the raised areas of the skin. This will add depth and make the details stand out. For example, you can use Skarsnik Green as a highlight if you started with Waaagh! Flesh, or Elysian Green if you started with Warboss Green. Apply the highlight paint sparingly for a subtle effect.
- Step 4: Paint the Details
Use a fine-tipped brush to paint the details of the Ork Nobz, such as the teeth, eyes, and any other small features. You can use colors like Ushabti Bone for the teeth, Yriel Yellow for the eyes, and Balthasar Gold for any metallic parts. Take your time and use a steady hand for precise detailing.
- Step 5: Basecoat the Weapons
Choose the appropriate colors for the weapons of the Ork Nobz. Use a brush to apply the base color to each weapon. For example, you can use Leadbelcher for metallic weapons or colors like Skrag Brown or Rhinox Hide for wooden weapons. Apply the basecoat evenly and let it dry before moving on.
- Step 6: Highlight the Weapons
Using a lighter shade of the base color, highlight the weapons to add depth and make them more visually appealing. For metallic weapons, you can use colors like Ironbreaker or Runefang Steel as highlights. For wooden weapons, you can use colors like Dryad Bark or Gorthor Brown as highlights.
- Step 7: Detail the Weapons
Use a fine-tipped brush to add additional details to the weapons, such as scratches or weathering effects. You can use colors like Agrax Earthshade to create a dirty or worn look, or Nuln Oil to add shadows and depth to the crevices.
- Step 8: Base the Models
Consider adding texture to the bases of your Ork Nobz models to enhance their appearance. You can use texture paints or other materials to create a realistic base. For example, you can use Stirland Mud texture paint or incorporate small rocks and grass tufts for added detail.
- Step 9: Varnish the Models
To protect your hard work, apply a layer of varnish to the painted models. Varnish comes in different finishes, such as matte or gloss. Choose the finish you prefer and follow the instructions on the varnish can for proper application.
