Just got back from a long weekend camping and got a few hours in "plating"  the "balloon" i'm going for a less armored look like they stopped adding stuff because it was too heavy. 

On a modeling note the plastic that the Christmas decorations are made of is super hard and prone to cracking. Took me a while to get the panels I liked.

It's coming along nicely! Will there be another flotation device for the front? Kinda looks like it may need it IMO. Your attention to detail is inspiring.

We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude.

I thought about adding another flotation device to it but well I the off balance look. 

 

 
So last pictures before priming:

And all its parts broken apart for painting, they're held on with pins and magnets:

C&C welcome.
 
Also I need to figure out what the primary colors for this army is going to be.

Maybe add some kind of ballast to the back? That could (possibly) make it keep the off balance look whole looking more...on balance? Or, more subtly, tilt the nose down.

I'm ganna just keep it as is, I like the off balance look.

 

So while I've been working on paint, I got my goblin bitz. The two sheets in the middle are from ebay, the rest are from my bitz box. I'm starting my crew work, and well don't ask me what bitz are which I got loads. I think the gun is from old school dwarfs and the torso I think is empire soldier and the legs are goblin legs.

And the First of my Ground Forces (Arkanut Company) He's the leader:

And well a scale with an arkanaut infantry (I actually own a bunch, they're ganna get bitz out for this army)

Thanks, as for the lifta-gas, the boat is made in part out of Etheral Gold a metal is lighter than air, thus the bags are made to give it a little lift. 

 

 

So spent my DnD game today painting this guy, I'm liking it.

Man, if I had any gobbo parts I'd give them to you for free just to see what an army shot looks like when it's finished. Good progress so far, looks way better than flying dwarves.

Thanks, Don't worry too much the gods of Ebay have made future Gobbo's possible. 

 

Small update, I am painting the Ironclad.

I do need some advice, I want to go with an accent color. My orginal thought was yellow, but I'm thinking a cream or white might work better. Thoughts?

The current condition... ummm the pictures are bad as I only have one light, and well a camera phone  need to upgrade my setup.

Ahh yeah they looked lighter but you know orks and the gobbos they don't care about physics also the fluff supports that the lift is acutually lighter than air solid metals go figure no clue on how that one works. 

 

 

So update, the sun was up and the windows provided a better lighting conditions for photos: 

iron%20clad%202_zpslunlp2os.jpg

iron%20clad%201_zpsvkmijsgp.jpg

 

Also I started today on my second project for the month, AKA my august threat, an Escort Ship.... some assembly required: \

grudstock%201_zpsihulnltg.jpg

 

Today's work was beginning on the turret: 

turret%203_zpsvnosxzsp.jpg

turret%204_zpsuyqztsrn.jpg

turret%206_zpsrvakqyop.jpg

turret%205_zpsgzqyvush.jpg

 

The interior has lots of structure as the barrel can turn and thus I needed to make sure it would not break while people torqued on it.

Comments, concerns, critiques.... all welcome!

 

Thanks for looking.

In one of Terry Pratchets' DiscWorld books (The Colour of Magic :? ) he has a boat skimming over the water held up by some 'hydrophobes' who detest the water that much that the boat won't go near it - maybe some of yer gobbos feel the same way about the ground :!
