Orktober 2021 – Da Big Round Up — Convert or Die

So having announced just yesterday that I’m embarking on another painting challenge I thought it was high time I padded my post count took a look back at the last one.

    Splendid! October is a good time to paint fungus-based lifeforms. My allotment has grown a heap of mushrooms but disappointingly, no Orks. 🙂

    Regards, Chris.
