I saw your stuff from two years ago or so, and was really disappointed when you stopped posting... now you're back! Your stuff is fantastic.
Thanks! It's good to be posting again. It's great
to be soaking in all the amazing stuff everyone else does. I'd forgotten how inspirational this place was.
I think the truck needs a grot ringing a bell, and a few stretchers on the side. That's just me personally also a helpful dentist grot to "collect" payment could be useful.
I've made a stretcher or two, but I'm not sold on any of the ones I've done. There's a couple other detail pieces I'm playing with though that'll likely end up on the RAMbulances.
The trucks also need to have light bars or beacons on their roofs.
I'm thinking the single light up to, but not 100% sure how I want to model/paint it yet. Haven't had much success painting lights and glass yet.
Really can't help feeling you're missing stuff
I'd have thought Kaptin Orkeye Fierce was gagging ferrit
And wassup with Da 4077th M*O*S*H (Mobile Orky Surjikle Hospitul)
To be honest, the M*A*S*H theme has evolved and taken a bit more prominence than it did in the initial concept. And I'm still not 100% sure if I'll go full-on military or paint it up to evoke modern EMT style field medicine. If I go military, the army will be VERY green, and thus scream "ORKZ!" If I go EMT I can make the army far more colorful and garish, which also screams "ORKZ!" but in a different way.
Got any test painting pieces for us?
Not yet. I hope to start painting sometime this weekend/early next week. As above, I'm torn between color schemes right now.
I have a question for you and probably all the scratchbuilders and kitbashers here. What thikness do you use on your models? I love the edging on it and in some of my kitbashes it looks flimsy.
Honestly, it depends on what I'm covering and if it's structural. I tend to use 1.5-2.0 mm plasticard for structural work or thick plates. If it's purely decorative I use the 0.25 mm or "yard sale" sign plasticard. The thicker it is, the easier the edges stand up to intense weathering. And the textural stuff (diamond plate, sideboard, tile, etc) is always
0.25 mm thick. At least, I've never really seen thicker. Not at the right scale, anyway.
To be honest, the edging of the thinner stuff can make it look flimsy quick. Gluing it to some 0.5mm card cut to the same size, then weathering it can mitigate this quite a bit.
the grots pack might be useful for the rambulance, what with the grot pulling teef out of an ork skull. (and several other suggestions)
Been meaning to get that pack, thanks for the reminder. And the other suggestions. I've got a few ideas yet planned, a limb repository being one of them. The combine is hysterical, though I don't know how well it'll mesh with the militaristic look. Perhaps as an Apoc vehicle...
Thank you all for the feedback. It's much appreciated!
