The Battlewagon right now reminds me of Jabba's Sail barge - which is a good thing in my book!

That new skin tone your doing looks phenomenal, its exactly what I'm looking to go for on my goffs. Is it death world forest > athonian camoshade > elysian green?

Thanks for the comments everyone -- still working on the riveting at the moment, but I'll put something up here when that's all done and I've got the first coat of paint on it.

It's proppa Orky no-wats: something that both has a lid on and doesn't :)  But I can't take credit for the original idea; I borrowed (looted) it from Pirate Viking Painting

Thank you -- it's Deathworld Forest (well, an old pot of Gretchin Green) > Thraka (Biel-tan) Green wash > Athonian Camoshade wash > highlight with Deathworld Forest

A bit more progress on Da Big Red Wun: base colours are all in place, so now it's on to washing on detailing:

It's really more red than pink in real life...I can't get the colour balance quite right in GIMP. Here it is with the alternative Deff Roller....looks like that might get some use in the new edition of 40K!

I say add a few seats on the top deck, and a horizontal gold stripe/lightning flash. An orky version of the London double decker bus.  ;) Oi! Wait a minute; I've had an epiphany! An AEC Routemaster bus as the basis for a Battlewagon conversion, and they're red too. :biggrin I think someone made a kit of the double decker bus (Revell Germany?). :? Curses, no luck on ebay!  :scowl I'm not ready to let this idea go just yet. :yes Thanks for the inspiration Yara! :thumbs

Slightly off topic. My apologies Yara. :blush I was correct, it was a Revell Germany kit. Prices on ebay & amazon range from $35.70 to $165.00. The cheap price is 27.50 pounds (and there are 2 available) in Burton upon Trent, East Staffordshire, U.K. Now the bad part, the kit is 1/24 scale. :bang For perspective, a 6' tall 'oomie in this scale is 76 mm; a newborn infant would be 18-20 mm. The model is 15" long, & 7" tall, and a weedy 4" wide! The kit would make for a large battle fortress, but would need much conversion just for raising the floors alone. I'll pass, but for those of you so inspired, the 2 in the U.K. are a bargain price. Again my apologies Yara for going off topic. :blush

 

P.S. There are blueprints online, I did download them, and I will be scratch building one in the future......on a smaller scale. :yes

No need to apologise -- very pleased to have inspired you. Looking forward to the scratchbuild :)

 

My own dubble dekka is finished. It's taken a while but here it is. First of all with deff rolla and the top down:

And then the reinforced ram and the complete top deck:

A closer looks at the top deck. I was particularly pleased to get the two halves to line up and be at the same level:

As an aside, I note that this log has fallen foul of Photobucket's new image sharing policy. I will go back at some point and redo all the posts with the same images shared from somewhere else. Just need to get some time to do it....

Thank you very much!

 

I've been working on a few bits and pieces. First I've finished off rearming and repainting the last of the Bad Moon Nobz -- they're all Goffs now:

All aboard!

I've also added some bikes. These came from Ebay already assembled and painted -- I liked the bikes themselves, but I wanted to repaint the riders so they matched the rest of my Orks. They've become the first Evil Sunz in the army:

Great work on them :thumbs Can't help feeling that the square plate on the left hand (right hand in pik) side of the upper deck should be black with a white 17 or something painted on it and the rectangular plate over the drivers view slit should be black with a white 'Haknee' printed on that - maybe 'Lunjin Transpawt' written on the sides :?

Great idea! I will have to think about how to go about doing this :)

 

So it's been a while since the last update...real life as ever has got in the way. I've been working on something a bit more colourful than the Goffs -- a Flash Git:

I plan to build a unit of similarly-colourful Freebootas...I got the idea for this conversion from the Freebooterz built by Jeff Vader on The Convertorum , although mine is no more than a direct copy of one of his. I've just painted him in my 2nd Edition-inspired style :)

Wow, nice paint job! The yellows really pop. Just needs a suitably flash ride- I can't see a rich git like that riding around on a double decker bus ;)

Thanks -- I do have some ideas about a ride for him (and the rest of the mob, when they're done), but it could be a while before I get round to acting on them. I can't believe how long ago I started this log, and how little progress I've made versus the pile of grey plastic I still have to get through :)

Really digging your take on orks. You Goffs are striking but brutal looking! The double decker bus idea is hilarious but effectively executed!
