Cheers Garslag


 

Looks like you had the same idea as me with that middle kan - is he made from a Stompa turret? 

The painted one in the top pik of post #218? - that one's Milliputted tinplate with a trukk turret and wrekking ball topped off with a 1/35th scale truck wheel.


 

Oh, and I love the Wall-E eyes on the front right!  :lol  I really like his olden-days plasma cannon (?) too.

Ah, definitely post #218 then - the plasma kannon halves are stuck either side of the KMB to help vary them up a bit (I still tend to think that 'Kustom' doesn't mean 'all the same') :biggrin

 

Got the new batch almost ready for paint now

Given them all burnaz (guess who found a load of burnaz whilst rummageing for bits). Still a bit more 'puttin to do but once this lot's done me OozToofs should look a lot more like a Walker Army :thumbs

Honestly - I just love Wazdakka and his old-school mega-armour.  This is what I want to do for my MANz, but I don't have the green stuff skills.  At least I can look at what you've done.  I really dig the shoulderpad glyphs, and the little mek spanner on his right shin. 

 

The grots loading the battlecannon for him is a nice touch, as is the 2E-style Evil Sunz paintjob, and the fact that you didn't bother with the silly princep-skulls.  Wazdakka is just quintessentially 2E, why bother shying away from it?

 

I also really appreciate the beastly shokk absorbers.  Probably still not enough to compensate for 2 tonnes of battle kannon and mega-armour going over a bump, but hey ;)    The only thing I think could have been better is I wish the front wheel was bigger.  It's taken me this long to realise that that was bothering me.  On the other hand, who cares?  He's a beast!

 

 

 

Any chance of a Barry shot with the Sunburnz some time?

Cheers guys, Garslag - tried painting him 2nd Ed 'clean' earlier but it didn't convince me so I just oil-washed and repainted 'til he got to the state he's in now. Did consider the princeps' skulzz, would have involved making skull shaped moulds big enough to take clear LEDs and casting transparent white-ish resin around them, then having another go at making clear araldite/acrylic paint flames and then wiring the whole lot onto the back of the mudguard :sowhat Decided that it would have just looked too fussy (and a bit too close to the ammo box :eek ).

 

The front wheel's about as big as I could make it (large rounded rear trukk wheel with as much extra Milliput as it would stand wrapped around it) but there are constraints in that I wanted room for some suspension travel, the ability to use at least a bit of the elevation and depression of the killkannon and keep the overall height of it down to something credible - El Presidete had all(?) his RT Space Ork Raiders, RT dredds and a couple of GutRippaz that he'd upscaled from Epic at the meet. Wazzys' front wheel was bigger than the ones he'd got on his GutRippaz - in fact, it's bigger than the front tyres I've got on my SkullHamma :lol

 

Nearly done with my SunBurnz (for a while) so I'll see if I can get them all set up some time this week for yez :thumbs

Have finished off my SunBurnz burna mob

- couldn't put Wazzy in with them 'coz I've just varnished 'im :sowhat

 

Also been mucking around with Thikk Bastardly's Dubble Zero race buggy

 

Dubble-Zero-1a.jpg

 

Yeah, best part of a week and make it into a Junk Tank Rock Racer by replacing the trakks with wheels - they're normally single back wheel on them but that would have had to go where Grottly's turret is. Da Flying Fish'ed can have one in the middle though

See if I can work up a bit more enthusiasm this weekend :sowhat

Thanks for the picture, was wondering how well the trukk wheels fit onto the scrapjet.

Much better looking than with the trakks - every proper mek would build a grot tank with those trakks anyways (or something else at least).

No worries Gitkilla, the trukk wheels were drilled out to match the axle stubs on the swingarms and then spaced out with Milliput to get the tyres far enough away from the swingarms and shockers. Still a bit sad that I couldn't think of anything better to do with it but it really doesn't lend itself to conversion work like anything with a proppa chassis does.

:lol Thikk Dastardly :love it.
Double checking what the actual racer looked like are you going to add the sail fin over the cockpit? That would really be aces :yes

Will you be adding more/better exhausts?

They have got to be possibilities, and there's enuff room around the rear turret for the bulgey torus thing to be fitted around it with all the exhausts poking out of it - wot have I written me-self into this time :bang

While building mine I came to realize that this is a very lame excuse for a vehicle. It seemed that the mid designers didnt talk st all to the people who would write the fluff. The write up says that its propelled by the exhaust and then the exhaust is weedy compared to the size of the hull not to mention the traks (never mind the wheels, though you could argue since they are near the engine there is some sort of drive train in there). The grot turret really puts the kybosh on any rear thrust which is extra funny :lol considering they dont give it any stats.

Im sure given your Miliput skills youll be able to come up w/ some kind of exhaust array.
