So I managed to get going with my threat yesterday. Started of with a mega armoured BigMek converted from one of a bunch of nastily painted AoBR Nobz I got given a while back. Paint was thick enough that most of the detail was clogged up, so I figured the best thing to do was cover it all in plastic and greenstuff. The Meganobz in my threat will be based on the other models like this, so this one started out as a kind of prototype.
Torso armour based on Templates by Drabber. :cheers for the work you did on those, great help.

Anyway, less chat, more pics. Bigmek with Mega armour, Cybork body, burna, attack squig, and boss pole.

Yes, He's gonna be Yellow.

Not sure about the placement of his mek tools, I think they make him look a bit rear heavy, I may add a rigga to his base instead.
Is there too much going on? I want to keep him WYSIWYG to save on rules lawyer hassles if/when he ever gets fielded, but the model looks a bit crowded now that I've had time to reflect on it.

Still to add: Fill holes in p/card work, battle damage, hydraulic lines, rivets, fuel tank and hose for the burna, maybe some more weld lines.

Anything else I've forgotten or could do differently?

It might be just me but; why not strip the "thick paint" from the AoBR Nob first to regain some of those details that were lost (old tooth brush and assetone free nail polish remover always does the trick for me)? I would love to see a Gretchin dragging his tools or Robo Squig happily serving as a "pack mule" for all the tool needs… more so the latter ;)
Always stay true to Ork beliefs: Bloo is lucky, Red makes fings go fasta, and rivits can fix ANYTHING!!!

Tried removing the paint, but I think they used enamels on at least some of the models because Nail varnish remover didn't touch the paint at all, and I don't want to use anything stronger in case it melts the model completely. The nobs are realy only serving as an armature anyway, but its a: easier (minimal greenstuffing work) and b: cheaper , (because the nobz models were free) to use them rather than build from a wire armature. Robosquig? not a bad idea. I'll raid my botz box and see what I've got lying around. Though room on his base is limited.

you can always have it on a seperate base, like bomb sqigs, oilas and ammo runts. you could even call it an oila. my mek's eventually gunna be surrounded with my little servo-ork things acting as ammo runts, oilas, attack squigs, meks tools & comic relief, and to make him more awesome! just shift them out of the way when you get to combat.

Had a good rummage through my bitz box yesterday looking for something usable as an oila or robosquig, and what do I find?

Half a dozen classic grot assistants, still bare metal, including the one at the far right Here

No way he'll fit on the base though, so i've given him his own base and gotten him painted, pics later.

I'm now feeling better about the Mek to, having removed the bag of tools from his back, (with both hands replaced with Bioniks, he wont be able to do much work anyway, So I guess he's more of a supervising mek than a 'hands on' one) he looks more balanced. So I'm going to carry on with rivets, pipes, etc and get him done before turning to the Meganobs. They should go a lot faster as I've got a better idea what I am doing, and they won't need any of the extra gubbins adding (though I may add some anyway :))

Nice work on your mega-nobs and big mek. :thumbs The plasticard armour looks great and I like the mek's servo arm too. A few barrels look like they need drilling. Also, have you thought about giving each nob a banner pole? It's a very flash and proppa thing for a bad moon nob and you've got the space to work with on their shoulders. :cheers

Then build it, paint it, post it and move into "da orkiest town in da ooniverse", and have the chance of winning a prize!

Yes. I noticed the shoota barrels while painting. I'll get to them a bit later, right now I'm in the process of building the nobz Truck as a bonus April threat. Pics once I've got the grots into bed. Regarding banner poles, maybe a bit later I'll see what I can throw together from the bitz box.

That mega mek is awesome! Loads of character. Digging the black flame markings, you can never have too much of those :D Great work on the terrain piece too. It's a bit of a shame you can't fit a miniature between the base of the silos and the hilltop railing though. Something to think about for the next piece perhaps?

Bloodsbane: The spacing between the silos and railing was deliberate. The sides and back of the hill are sheer enough that they will count as impassible in game anyway. The railing is there to reinforce the point, and because it looked a bit bare without. Didn't manage to get the nobz trukk completely built last month though, so I'll make finishing it my May threat. Also thinking about a trio of rocket buggies.

You'll need to join the group to access the files, but there are loads on there. alternatively, try searching the meks garage for drabbers files, I think they are still hosted here somewhere

No. If you check post 5 you'll see a link to an old grot rigger model with a toolbox that I found in the bitz box. I forgot to put him in the pics, so I'll take one next time I update this thread with some progress.

Arise ye olde dead thread.

In line with this months threat, I've painted the first 8 of my lootas. I'm sure therre are some bits that I missed, mostly because I didn't think things through when I built them and glued the dakka gunz on instead of leaving them seperate for painting. lesson learned though, the last 4 have the gunz seperate until everything else is finished.

Anyway, pics:

Just need to tidy up the base rims, but I think I'll do all 12 at the same time.

Edit: Arrgh, just noticed some wires I didn't get on the last detail pass, I'll have to do that with the ones on the last 4

Thats because it is green! I figured the Mek wouldn't waste paint covering a perfectly good green, just because it was a looted piece of kit.

Threat mostly done, should have not threatened so much with a new born in the house, but we live and learn.

The burnas have been intentionally left seperate to make painting easier (lesson learned from the first eight lootas). The last of the loota's and the 2 tankbustas are painted. Sorry for the bad pics, I'll take some better ones tommorow when I get a minute.

Lootas

Burnas, the mek was primed at the same time as the lootas, but I'll be painting him with the rest of the mob.

Missing are the remote demo charges that were going to serve as the bomb squigs. I didn't get time to make them this month, so I guess i'll put them off until october.

Ok, so I'm trying to post pics of my completed July threat, but the boards won't accept copied text even though my settings say paste function is enabled, anyone got any ideas?
