So basically, I remembered reading something somewhere about GW thinking about making Sky Pirate Goblinz to tangle with those Kharadon Overlordz dwarves. So I i've been waiting, and then well decided, If GW ain't ganna do it I will. The plan is to use 40k grotz and scratch build the ships, here's my beginning of their IronClad:

So I spent this night giving the model a couple of hours of work. The main "plating" on the hull is nearly done, now I start detailing, mainly rivets and portholes. The "engines" I'm waiting on some bits, also after I finish the rivets I can add the smoke stacks to the model.

C&C welcome, encouraged and well, I'll admit it I run on complements when I am doing these projects.

Got a pretty good cross between a U-boat and a MTB going on, assuming that you'll be putting in a forward turret and a deck gun at the back of it and the lifta-gas-bags over the top? Interested in seeing how the funnels are going to be routed. :cheers

Looks pretty promising so far. No idea about the AOS fluff to know what you're using it for, but it looks promising.

Thanks, I was going for more U-boat but well it worked out. The forward gun I've not totally decided on what its going to be yet. As for the lifter bags I got a plan, just want to finish the hull first.

Right I know most people don't care much about detailing work, but I finally got the preliminary riveting done.... and started to build out the exhaust.

It's quite often the detailing that makes the model. Very evident in this case - it's looking incredible, even at this stage.

Yeah, I guess that works for the exhaust - I was kind of expecting a couple of more steampunky type funnels going up and round the gasbags but dieselpunky is probs orkier :thumbs

I'm jealous. I bought some of the fantasy dwarf airship stuff to do something.. somewhat similar and was underwhelmed with the size. You've done a very convincing job to this point.

Thanks, my main plan is I got a bunch of 40k grots, I see pirate hats, and that might be it for them. I also have some kharadon pistols which I might use for them.

Yeah it's looking better and better as I work.

I would have gone steam punk but well I do like the Disealpunk a bit better also I might use this as something for 40k eventually.

I actually have 2000ish points of Kharadon, which I play right now, I plan on the Gobbos replacing them. 

 

 

Well I have family visiting soon so I spent a little bit detailing. I added a second exhaust stack to it.

Shaping up nicely. :thumbs

 

As for crew, Kromlech makes some pirate goblins, and Maxmini has some pirate gobbo heads - no idea about the size of those, though.


Armored walkers are Slow and Purposefull.

Well I have looked into that, I do have a few Pirate Grots from my Gorka Morka gang somewhere. Pirate hats are easy, personally I might go Steampunk Gobbz its an idea i have bouncing around. 

 

So small update, not sure I like it but this is my first "gas bag" according to Fluff its actually a metal that is lighter than air. (cool fluff from the Kharadon book)

And the work on its base, I need to add some more rocks for detail and weight.

So another small update, I changed the Gas Bag.... lift thingy supports. I wanted something that looked lighter, but I needed structure so I made the extensions out of brass rod.

A better close up, right now it has a magnet and a pin so I can remove it to work the model and paint later.

Can see good arguments for both - the gasbags want to look light but they are expected to drag the boat up with them and need to look sturdy enough to do it.....

 

Do think that the mk2's look better :thumbs  

 

Maybe see about some sort of netting over the tops of them :?

Well as the Fluff does state the gas bags are actually metal made from lighter than air material, I'm not too sure about the netting. I might go a bit more on the detailing that's probably it. 

 

 

Well as I wait on Amazon to deliver more supplies, I started in on its main weapon today, a Sky Kannon. The local players around here play stormcast.... AKA good armor I need something with a big Umpft to it.

Mounted on the ship:

IMG_20180716_220253707_zpsjgmhnjtr.jpg

 

The mounting is a 40mm base which has a metal fender washer under it. The turret mounts 3 magnets, and a pin which holds it together really well.

Gosh I hope it looks good, it took way longer than I was expecting. 

 

 

So update, I got the supplies to make the main gas bag. 140mm empty Christmas ornaments, I started to make the atatchments, the gas bag actually dis connects right now to allow for detailing and painting, I'll glue it into place once I finish.
