I decided to redo my Ork fleet and to start with I striped down my KroolBoy BattleShip and began work on beefing it up.

This ships isnt intended as a new class of BattleShip, its intended to be used as any of the four battleship class's. Its also beefy enough to be used as the unoffical Ork BattleShip Gork'z BigUn da 400ptz monsta!

Ive never been a great fan of the BattleShip design... as for some reason it was made in a completely different style to the existing ork ships.
To somewhat correct this Ive given it more hight by adding some Oomie cruise parts. This makes it taller than it is wide... which is more in keeping with the Ork's fishy style vessels. It also clearly depicts the fluff about large Ork ships being built from the wreakz of Oomie vesselz.

Extra engines have been added to make the back end higher without adding a tail fin.
Ive used a DethDeala prowl as I think is the best looking of the four, its been modified by mounting it lower and adding some other gubbinz to depict optional lances and torpz. Ive not bothered to clearly model launch bays as this would have taken up valible space for gunz n turretz. Besides... as lauch bays are basicly just holez in the hull I didnt think it that important. ;)

There are plenty of little bitz left to do to get everything blended together right.

very nice - very "chunky" and "orky" - the added height really does make a very good "fishy" statement, i hate to make a suggestion on a masterpiece, but a little bit of armor over perhaps the first third of each back multi-engine? soemthing just to bulk the tail up a tad?
Nothing to see here. Move along.

I gotta agree, Krooza. That is much more in line with the Ork Kroozer designs. And as only you can do, it looks completely original yet recognizably part of the GW Ork fleet. Very nice. :thumbs Given that you'll only be using one BB at a time I can't imagine an opponent objecting to this being any one of the four.

Yeah, that will work. Our fish'ead ships have given as good as they've got against Gue'la and even Chaos, but the way my main opponent plays Orks, we generally get run off the table. (He takes pretty much nothing but kill-kroozers, and shuts down our ordonnace. Not agreeable at all.

Although Ive already posted this in a seperate topic I will put this custom Gouga Kroozer here as well.
This is a 'Evy Gouga the big bro of the Lite Gouga.
This vessel is design to be the kommand ship of large Brute Ram fleet. No rulez as yet, but I had in mind a vessel with sooped up engine and some ded killy ramming weaponz.

The top jaw has some teef from a 40K Ork ChainSaw added.
The lower jaw is from an ]I[ model. This kinda makes the prowl look like a giant PowerKlaw. A large chainsaw is mounted within the grip of the Klaw in a sort of SwordFish fashion.
Along it sides are mounted twin bladed chainsaws for added choppiness.
Engines are from an Ork BattleShip. The Kroozer's tail fin was removed and repositioned on its side. The enginez have been capped with some plastic tubing to give them a crisper finish, this is something I plane to do to all my ships.
Bulking up the top of the hull are the back-ends from a 40K LandRaider Cruiser's Heavy Bolters.

Ive also rework the prowl area changing the normal position of the eye. There are several places the 'eye' can be on both the KillKroozer and TerrorShip prowl. Doing this can realy change the expression of the prowl.

A sneek preview of my chosen fleet colorz... Ive gone for BadMoonz as I like the striking yellow. Only the prowlz will be given colour, the rest of the ship will be bare metal. This is a simple and effective paint skeem that quick to do. Here you can see the ship with its base colours added. Shades n highlitez will be added later.

No Ork fleet is complete without a 'Ulk.
Not been a fan of the more usual jumble of wreaks fused together type 'Ulk Ive designed mine like a proppa ship.
Offical 'Ulk statz arent realy good enough for such an impressive vessel... but not much I can do about that.
A quick blog of its construction can be found Here!

Happy with the new shape of my BattleShip the one thing that was bugging me was the prowl. Its just so damn different to all the other Ork ships. I did concider removing it and replacing it with a KillKroozer prowl... but that wouldnt have been wide enough. So I filed down the detail and cladded it in thin plasticard. Then filling the gaps with putty before adding more plating... and steadily building up the shape. This new prowl will be trimmed and detailed to match the other Ork ships.

Absolutely proppa, mate. :thumbs And I truly know what it's like to try and glue down those little fiddly p-card ribs and struts. I am impressed with how nicely you've done it. Once the paint hits it no one is going to have a clue that this is p-card.

Thanx... still a bit to do to it yet. Once the prowl is finished the enginez need work and that ugly putty work needs sorting out. Ill try and get some decent picz done at PhatTony'z when Ive finished the build.

Here my completed BattleShip. A top set of teef added to the Prow. Oomie launch bays mounted verticly on the underside. Enginez caped with plastic tubing. Plasticard and sculpting work tidied up. This ship is now about the same mass as the largest Oomie BattleShip, and sports anuf weaponz to make it more than a match for any of them. ;)

Theres a Kroozer next to the Hulk in one of the picz ;) Its about 7" long. Im presently working on two Rok style Kroozers. They are like mini versons of my Hulk and can be used either as Kroozers or as Rokz.

Been workin on my first Rok. Got the basic shape done and all the mayor gubbinz in place. As you can see its a much more uniform shape compeared to a standard Rok. Seem to be a logical step for Orkz to make Kroozers from Rokz as you get the best of both... out-standing duriblility and maneuverability. Im making a pair of these and they will mainly be used with my Hulk with standard Rok statz.

the rok is looking nice and i like the way youve got the asteroid upgraded into ship feel some other roks ive seen are lumps of rock like clay with engines(as in not the well done clay roks with engines and windows that look good i mean hastily glued on out of place parts and bits to look like engines). and the pictures on the how you built your ulk blog are gone/deleted
