So my next long-dormant project to be resurrected and finished is this...
I love this game and would love to have a scumgrod to bash on a regular basis. But it just ain't so. Still, that won't stop me from finishing something I started back when there was a game shop that had BFG players in it. And that's a hulk. It's the ultimate for any Ork fleet. It brings it's own gravity well and that is essential for ramming. Since I have 20 Brute rams in my fleet I really, really need this beast. A hulk with a squadron of Brutes in orbit is a thing of terror indeed. And since I can already field 2500 points without it, the hulk is pretty much the last ship I need.
You will however note the three unpainted escorts in the background. Those will get a lick of paint by the by.
Anyhow, what's going on in the front here is... gunz. Hulks are supposed to have innummerable turrets and you have to admit it looks pretty bare at the moment. I have torpedo tubes (from the Gorbag's Revenge jaw on top) and fighter bays along both sides. They are actually life rafts from an old Renwal ship model. I also grabbed all the AA guns and turrets from the ship, but they still don't amount to much, not to mention that they are a bit out-scale for this build, but I'm hoping to make them blend in anyway. Not sure I will succeed at that. The row of gray dots (actually bits of sprue) are more appropriately sized turrets they will be glued together with other little tiny bits of plastic from the ship sprue and hopefully look like turrets once they are in place.
