And some other stuff I've been working on in the meantime:

 

Made this guy for a friend, who's wife loves da Rats, in trade for some of his other models for my son's army

And then, because I had left over parts, I ended up making this lil guy to go with my own converted Techseer/Grey Seer/Dominus:

Trying to do up a load of these guys from the Battle of Pelennor fields box (GW Lord of the Rings starter box set) - just to table top, so's to actually play the game at some point before the end of the Era. Saving the fun ones for later (calvary and the big Nazghul). The models are a lot closer to true 28mm scale and so a bit smaller than I've gotten used to painting tbh. 20181223_143213.thumb.jpg.2a5fb07071ef0a30f0b199a14160ba6b.jpg

Is it bad when you get distracted from the distraction? Sigh Hobby ADHD

 

But gotta create when the Muse is handy, she's fickle like that.

 

Some time ago I'd done a twitter contest for peeps into da Green boyz and anyway a couple prizes were conversions I would make. Finished one the last like two days. Haven't started other yet, but I got some ideas... 


 

 

Try to get them vaguely in order, hopefully didn't repeat any sometimes taking pics on phone, using google to update to my comp is confusing. 

To explain a bit, my friend's building a Blood Axe themed 40k Ork army. This is stuff like Kommandos and "sneeksy" types. I'd been wanting to convert one of the GW new Baby Knights (Knight Armiger) for a while. And someone on instagram, I totally space who, had already done the open cockpit idea, which I promptly stole. The rest of the model is bits from various GW sources, plasticard, wire, and greenstuff. The idea of the head and the wires is a little bit like the grots and Meks found this thing all blown up and decided to refurbish it. But being a bit unversed in Imperium technology, they had to ... make some adjustments. Like extra wires to make the head work (where the brain or whatever of the machine would be). I had to move the Grots arm a bit and use my hot air gun to melt the hand about the wires, then place him on a tiny scaffold thing so he could be seen above the open cockpit. Honestly, bending the wires, lacing them together and fixing the grot in place took up the majority of  time with this build!! Everytime I moved one thing right, something else moved out of place ><

 

Anyway the Blood Axes actually use camoflage (although their ideas vary wildly from what humans would consider 'working') and I thought hey I have all these bits from t he GW Trees, wouldn't it be funny, kind of like those cartoons you see, where the character's holding a small shrub or branch and is all "you can't see me!", if one of these Baby Knights was all "You can't see me! I'm a Tree!" anyway that's where I was going with it. I'll admit many late nights were involved.

 

Anyway pic spam:
