At my local club there is a group that plays mostly spacegames where uge (fluffwise that is) spaceships battle it out.
It's a pretty flexible system where you write out your own ships with a shipbuilder...

soooooo naturally I just had to make some Ork warships to invade this system!

All are scratchbuild from plasticard, cardboard, wires, caps, bits, etc...
Here are the first couple of shots of the entire fleet so far, it ranges from smaller corvette and destroyer classes (front of pic) to the massive Supadreadnought! (back of pic)

some detailed pics will follow.

Great work! I envy your skill with plasticard...

I'll use this as some inspiration for when I get round to building my own ork fleet.

This I really like. Well done, Madhakk!! If there's any way you could do a tutorial I'd appreciate it - I could use some variety in my fleet beyond simply kitbashing BFG models.

I'll see if I can sneak in a tutorial next time if I remember to take pics!

It's not as much a plasticard skill as most of the models are made with thin cardboard and leftover pieces of wathever I could find.
The destroyers for example are the tips of old ballpoint pens with cardboard wings and some sprue and wire gubbinz and that's it...

Just paint 'em proppa and you got yourself an Orky spaceship!

Weird, my original comment was deleted. I like how you took the fleet from the 40k rule book and brought it to life. If I was ever to play gothic I'd likely do something similar. You might consider putting some masking tape down on a sheet of glass and cutting very small squares and rectangles and then putting them on the ships before priming them next time. It will help with the patchwork look of the ships and make for an easy additional layer of detail on the large flat surfaces.

Great tip on the masking tape patchwork! That will indeed help on some of the flat areas and is pretty easy to do!
Now I just gotta remember it when I begin building a model next time...

Great of you to notice the designs are from the rulebook drawings, that means they do look like 'em...

You should really make some, it's great fun and there are still many spacegames you could use em in.
A fun way is to play a spacegame as a prelude to a 40K or Apocalypse battle!

Be sure to post if you have any!

Thanks for the comments

Looking great man! I built an Ork fleet last year or so as well, I used a very similar concept for my escorts, you just executed it better! smilingOrk.gif
