Currently madly trying to finish Orkz

Recommended Posts

Thanks guys :) appreciate it!

Orks are so much fun to convert, I'm glad I started doing them - though my goal this coming early 2018 is to finally finish (well most of them).



I had to put some GS in under the top bit, hence the clips, as the front half kept falling off due to not enough contact points.




Can't really see the panel where it normally sits so I took a pic before I put it on the bike.

What project will you be moving on to after the orks are finished?


Well I still have a good bit of orks, but I'm intending (as a main project anyway), to start working on my Ratticus Mechanicus army >:D I have a lot of Skaven left, and several new boxes of Skitarii stuffs so I'm hoping to really convert a lot, not simply change out heads and add tails (though I'll do that as well)

Well, for the record, in a small game, with a small mat, vs Dark Eldar - the warbuggy got blowed up before it got to do anything lol And the rest of my orks weren't far behind. It didn't help the trukk exploded killing a bunch of my own crew as well. But thus it goes in orks - we'll 'av anuvver go!


Meanwhile working on more Lootas, and taking stock of what i have to do. I also moved my Chibis closer to my paint station... so maybe they'll get some paint on them per my plans ><20180113_194832.thumb.jpg.fd8f6f2d7d7dae78f88f4c515d0c0466.jpg




So for the rest of the army...

I need to base Lootas and the Burnaboyz,

I need to finish 15 more boyz (found whilst cleaning ><),

I have two MANz to finish, 

I have 35 grots to paint,

20ish Nobz to paint,

a Battlewagon to build and paint,

2 Grot tanks to paint (they're from G.U.T.S., Chibi Shermans and are ADORBS)

I'm planning on buying 2 Trukk kits, 2 Mek Gunz kits and converting for a total of 4 Mek Gunz (one of each type)

Also, need to buy 1 unit of Flash Gitz, 

and then hopefully, my army will be done! So maybe by May I figure.

Thanks Glitterwolf!


I did some more work on the bases, the minis are basically finished, though I have 8 more of them to do. I'm debating putting water effects on the base. It would help keep the minis on, they're just superglued atm. But it's a lot of work and not all my guys have water effects either. I gave them some rocky shore type stuff, so I could get them up at a proper angle, otherwise they tend to all be pointing down.


The Mek boy (single figure) I had trouble getting his arms to line up properly *and* get his head on >< very annoying but eventually I just had to GS his left arm and finagle the right so it sorta looks right, sigh.










And I couldn't quite start on 8 more orkz late last night so instead I decided to work on this cute little guy for a while. I'm trying to use some glazes instead of how I normally paint, so we'll see how it goes!

These aren't really "New" per se, but I finished the base for one of my Trukks. It was a bit of a trial, I think next time I'll be sticking the Trukk in, after doing the waves, instead of trying to 'save' space for the tires. It just didn't nestle as naturally into the divets as I"d hoped. Anyway here's its sea base:

Thanks guys! Trying to start in on the others soon (tm) so I should have stable bases for trukks soon.


Been sick so I've been a bit diverted, but this is what I've been working on mostly - 



Built a few things - Battlewagon for my Orkz




Gangs of Commorragh box set for my son's Dark Eldar (Drukhari) army:



And cleaned the mold lines off these guys, so I can try to get some done for "Squadary" (Squad in February)

      So browsing MM for their BF sale & I come across this from Citadel/GW

      All the title says is Citadel Colour Spray Stick & there is no description, other then
      Manf: Games Workshop
      1 Spray Stick
      1 Detachable Handle
      50 Elastic Bands
      Instantly I thought it was rubber band shooter, but it got me to look at GW's website to see what purpose this actually does: 

      Ie something I can accomplish with double stick tape & a piece of cardboard......sigh.

      I ordered the new wraiths that were just released that were part of the Bones 4 KS. I thought they were going to be opaque (that's how they were first posted), and was bummed when they arrived as translucent. Mostly because I have never painted a translucent before. So I ordered up a couple other green guys to try out some technique.
      After botching up the Spirit figure with AP green quickshade, I moved on to this Grave Wraith. I used Muddy Brown on the ground, Mountain Stone on the gravestone and Bronze Dragon on the sword. I liberally used AP strong quickshade as a base on the wraith, and then highlighted with the Green Clear Bright. I think it looks pretty good. Any suggestions or comments welcome. I really want a creepy Nazgul look on my B4 wraiths, and this turned out better than I thought it might.

      Back in the "olden days" when I played 40k second edition, our game group played a lot of multi player games, and as a result, we sort of had a meta-game RPG going on with our Space Marine Chapters.  Thanks to the things that happened during the games, our chapters had allies and alliances and rivalries and foes.
      Sometimes, to resolve disputes, we would hold a council meeting of the Chapters so grievances could be aired, agreements come to and consequences doled out. In these council meetings, each chapter got a vote. 
      But a problem emerged - some players had multiple chapters of their own design, and multiple players were playing official GW chapters, which meant that some people had multiple votes, while others had to share.  The solution we came up with was that for council votes, a chapter could be represented by a single fully painted miniature.
      And so most of us painted up three or four minis as our vote "tokens". And here are mine from the 90s:

      The guy on the left is one of my Marines Errant, which was my primary Chapter. The black and yellow guy is one of my Blast Hornets, a chapter that was declared renegade as the result of one of these council meetings. The two on the left are my voting minis, from the Fire Angels and Fire Hawks chapters.
      Just before I moved away, we had a big council meeting coming up, and I hatched a dastardly plan. I bought two boxes of the cheapest Space Marines I could, and planned to paint up twenty more chapters, thus ensuring I could rule final vote. This was also going to be my parting gift - I was going to give each of the other players two of the minis.
      Well, I didn't manage to do more than get those minis primed.  I recently found that box of primed Space Marines, and decided to see how well I could paint one of my Marines Errant 20+ years later, using Reaper's MSPs.
      And then I decided I wanted to finally finish the project

      Here are the first six. On the left is a Marines Errant, and on the right is a Salamander - the other four I just painted up and threw decals on.  I'll have to come up with chapter names for them later.

      Deadlands Lost Colony is a roleplaying game setting for the Deadlands universe and uses the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition game system. It takes place in 2097, thirteen years after the Last War in Deadlands Hell on Earth. Hellstromme Industries created a “Tunnel” between Earth and a distant star system later called Faraway. Millions of colonists settled on asteroid mining stations and the only inhabitable planet, Banshee, before the Tunnel collapsed and left them stranded. Now the humans must fend for themselves against a rogue military, ruthless pirates, angry anouks, the rise of an evil alien presence, and worst of all, the arrival of the Reckoners—made flesh on Earth and exiled to Banshee!

      Yes, a 2020 ReaperCon WIP! And a massive undertaking at that. I'm trying very hard not to nerd out and put this whole project into, er, Project. There's just so many pieces to keep track of, that maybe I'll just use this first post to keep track of things.
      Some background stuff, starting with a quote from the "Paint a giant robot! Group WIP" where I wrote some of what's planned:
      You can read the rest of that post here: Paint a giant robot post and a second one to see where I'm going with this: PLA print post in same topic
      Biggest takeaway is that, while useful, my PLA printer can only do so much. I have a resin printer backed on Kickstarter, but considering it's now 3 years late, I don't think I should hold my breath on it ever showing up. Especially when I can get a new Elegoo Mars resin printer with more capability for relatively cheap (<$300). The PLA machine was bought with both hobby and household goals in mind, and it's served well. But the resolution just ain't there! More on that down the posts.
      I also had the chance to gain some experience on  paper plants at ReaperCon (Main post for that in the Terrain section post here: Vellum Paper Plants - Alien Jungle (WIP)
      Basically, I have the scrap booking machine to make my own alien plants:
      Which now leads me to this WIP. This is going to tie all those pieces together. The robot WIP will still be to get a good camo scheme, but that print job is not going to be used for the final diorama. Instead, that will be the resin printer's job. So, let's break down the WIP work that I can see so far, and will be edited later to add things and mark completions.
      Tasks to be completed:
      Figures Needed
      Wight (being pulled down backwards, caught by hidden lines) Gremlin Unit 01 (stole a supply crate and ran; actually just bait to get the larger CAV to follow) Gremlin Units 02 and 03 (trip line pair, successfully snagging Wight across the chest) Gremlin Units 04 and 05 (trip line pair, successful across another part of the chest) Gremlin Unit 06 (burner unit, cut Wight's left gun in two) Gremlin Units 07 and 08 (trap door unit, hiding entrance to jungle path with camo doors strapped to them) Gremlin Units 09 and 10 (trip line pair, successful across right thigh) Gremlin Units 11 and 12 (trip line pair, broken cable across chest, possibly falling over from sudden jolt) Gremlin Unit 13 (ECM unit, some large radar dish looking thing) Gremlin Units 14, 15 and 16 (cargo units, loaded up with stolen supplies and headed out) Gremlin Units 17, 18, 19, and 20 (gun units) Gremlin Units 21, 22, and 23 (missile units) Gremlin Unit 24 (large gun unit) Gremlin Unit 25 and 26 (junked units; scavenged for parts?) Gremlin Unit 27 (2nd style missile unit) Gremlin Unit 28 (personnel carrier unit)  
      Wight Conversion
      Right Leg: cut from pelvis; reposition Feet: cut off both feet and swap positions since the tread is only on one foot Base: cut away from right foot, possibly keeping full base around left foot Left arm (maybe): cut gun into two pieces, having one falling to the ground after being cut by a heat lance/chainsaw rope  
      Details to be included
      Camo doors at front leaving marks on the dirt path, but hiding the ambush from the main trail Pieces of old broken larger CAV units around Wight gun cut in two, maybe showing inner details. May have to 3D print an add-on piece Dust being kicked up by the stolen crate (going to try using dyed cotton) IN WORK One cable snapping dynamically, with several bends and twists (superglue on thread?) Multiple vehicle tracks around camp Campfire and tents for people A latrine Other camp details (laundry, chairs, sports equipment, bored carvings, etc)  
      Jungle Plants (V=Vellum cuts, B=bought, S=Sculpted, F=Found, P=Printed)
      Large lotus flower like plants, but dry land and maybe odd colors with a large conifer cone growing from the middle (V) Jester hat plant (balls on stems around a central point) (V) COMPLETED Spiky yucca like plant (V) Jagged leaf plant (V) Tentacle plant (V) Tripod trees (three spoke trunks) (V) Large palm fronds (S) Coral like trees (P) Horn tree (lots of horn shaped leaves from a central trunk) (P, V) Ball vine (like ivy but with odd leaf shapes) (V) Cabbage-like jungle plants with large wrinkled leaves (V) Fuzzy vines (thin wire coated with static grass) (S) Anything I can buy from N/HO scale train setups and painted alien-ish (B) Reaper figures that can be clipped and painted to be plants (B) Odd trees with strange leaf shapes (onion shaped) (V) IN WORK Random grass-like jungle plants (V) IN WORK Stem ends from mandarin oranges (seriously, pull one off and look at it, stem towards the ground) (F) Anything and everything else (VBSFP)  
      Base mounting system
      Design and print modular tiles with bristles on top (basically, Bristle Block toys) Allows mounting of all the above jungle plants Fill in around plants with thinned plaster via a syringe to create the ground surfaces
