Sci-Fi Pig Faced Orks (Sporks) - the Myth

John has done a range of of Pig Faced Orks in Space with the working title "Sporks". The ranges consists of several sculpts and war gear items, but the range is still unreleased by Foundry.

For a long time the only proof of their existence has been this picture I'd received from Marcus @Wargames Foundry:

However, at Christmas 2015 I found these 3 sculpts in a parcel from Foundry, making up for a small delay. I was very excited seeing them and feel we are one step closer seeing them released.

In march 2016 James Halloway of Gonzo History: Gaming Edition showed his collection at his blog. What a magnificent sight it was. James had, at BOYL 2015 (an Oldhammer/Foundry event in August 2015), been given a set of 15 Foundry Space Orks and I've got the permission showing them here.

After a visit at Wargames Foundry - April 2016 - and a brief chat with Bryan regarding the Sporks Jon Boyce kindly provided me with these pictures down here proving that the tank/dreadnaught definitely has been mastered, too.

Sci-Fi Pig Faced Orks (Sporks) - the collection

April 2017 ... I'm now the proud owner of the following Sporks (but I have added those missing, I know of, to the collection guide down here).

My guess is, that these were planed as a "5 miniatures a pack" release like the Pig Faced Orcs (Fantasy) and as John recalls sculpting them in sets of five.
