Ork Kommando - How to Make Backpacks !!

These are the real things from Forgeworld and very nice they are to. However you can make your own pretty cool back packs from very little.

First take some left over greenstuff, or use new if you don't have, and cut into a suitable square shape.

Second take two Space Marine ammo pouches, the large ones and cut one set in half.

Now you need to raid the bits box and for all manner of accessories that you wish to add, here I have a knife/choppa, some space marine grenades and some small ammo pouches. I also used a converted Stikkbomb.

Now start gluing the ammo pouches ( in your desired combination ) onto the greenstuff square.

Next grab all your accessories and have a ball!!

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and let me know what you think with a comment.



  1. Nice, easy tutorial! really adds to the commando feel of these guys!

  2. Great idea!

    I think you can use sprue remains (cutting, gluing and stacking) to make the "core" and save green stuff.
