#714171 Don Corleone's WIP

Posted by Don Corleone on 01 September 2016 - 04:36 AM

Hey folks, first of all: please excuse my english, I'm not a native speaker.
 
This is my debut at The-Waaagh, a scratchbuild Battlefortress. Its my first scratchbuild model, so I'm pretty proud of it.
The constructing is done so far, but most of it isn't glued in place yet, to be able to paint in later.
 
If you are interested I can post pictures of the building process. 
 
I hope you like it :)

#716615 Burna boy OSL

Make them do the burny dance!

Time to try some osl again. The body is old Microarts longcoat orc (they don't make these anymore), burna-boy-bitz are GW and the flame is GS over wire, sculpted by me. It's clearly an ork, though the only bit of green skin visible is the right index finger pulling the trigger.

 

I'm actually pretty happy with the result, there were moments I was sure I could not pull this off. The OSL is the main point, not much details on the back.

 

I broke off a bit of the flame near the nozzle while glueing it on, but decided to take the pics anyway, might take weeks before I'll get around to fix that - if at all.

It's Orc with Cloak by Spellcrow, from Umbra Turris-line, another great sculpt from them. I wanted to do some freehand on the of inside his cloak, the Assassin's Creed icon (orkyfied) was the logical choice.

I also meat to paint a line of skulls on the yellow hem of the cloak, but gave up after three and painted over them. They were so small and fiddly and looked more like stains than skulls.

I am excited if only because there are people actually checking this place.  I joined a facebook ork group out of desperation, but I like this place better.

#718783 Digganob Project

Posted by Morghot on 17 June 2017 - 06:04 PM

Hello Green friends!

 

With the new 40k edition i've started to feel the need to make something to honour my greenskin spirit! But unfortunately the will to make another ork warband is not great; ive painted too much ork boyz, i know they are never enough but im also a painter slow as hell so i must abdicate!

OT and i have little dream of new orks boyz kit sooner or later, the current are always cool but they have almost my age  :biggrin , i would really appreciate some new boyz!! /OT 

 

Oook so thinking of what to do came up in my mind gorkamorka! And from gorkamorka-----> digganob!

 

I love to convert models and with all the range of these days there are a lot of miniatures adaptable for being diggas!

 

I dont know how much time and how many models i will do, but i can ensure you that this is one of the most important project (talking about feelings  :blush ) i have ever started and i will always try to continue it!

 

Stop talking i show you the first models, 3 digganob, from left to right: Grummok, Sharko Boy, Psycho Kane

 

edit: old link are dead so i post here all the pics:

The... Following 6 Hours are a bit hazy, but somehow I added a giant Rokkit fist, and a second Huge Zzap gun... then primed, and Dry brushed the metals on.

I still call it a WIP as it has no proper base, and I want to do a bit more detail (like... painting up the Trophy Knight Helms to be of Knight houses I've fought against. BUT... its nearing completion.

#725994 Warhammer fest Ork news

Posted by Lexington on 26 May 2018 - 09:57 AM

Thats just it though, the old fluff wasnt all that good. Youre implying the fluff was heads and shoulders better than whats out there now. [...] Have you ever really sat down and read all those old codex and supplements?


I have, in fact, run this particular experiment. Between the idiot ravages of 6th and 7th Edition, a dwindling local community and a burgeoning Infinity scene, I took a long break from 40K a few years back. It wasnt that long, but it was long enough. I wandered back in last year, and there were some rather significant memory holes.

Now, the digital age has been great for shredding nostalgia. With Netflix, YouTube, Amazon and a plethora of questionably-legal services, one can easily hold ones once-beloved entertainment up to the harsh light of day, and see how it holds up. Personally, my own past selfs track record has been abysmal to the point where Im thinking of disowning that stupid, stupid bastard. Everything he liked sucked!. X-Files was self-important trash. Its hard to believe how embarrassing and dumb the X-Men cartoon I championed for years actually was. Want to know whats almost as bad as the Star Wars Prequels? Return of the Jedi. What chance did the pipsqueak pastiche of 40K have? It had to suck. The basic shape of the universe decreed it.

But, nope. 40K is so good, you guys. Andy Chambers run especially. The Codex Imperialis, the 2nd Ed Space Wolf and Chaos Codexes. The 3rd Ed big black book, the 3rd War for Armageddon, Necromunda, GorkaMorka, all manner of White Dwarfs and supplements, and standing equal to any of them, the ur-text of our collective love, WAAARGH! Da Orks. Goodness, gracious, me oh my, they are just such utterly solid reading. They describe a universe thats so varied and unique, funny and terrifying, fantastic and banal, a place that doesnt quite have the shape of reality, but has something better - the texture and mouthfeel of life. Verisimilitude, even among all the space robots and screamin daemons. It wears its hodgepodge of pop culture and spec-fic influences on its sleeve - the best of the worst and the worst of the best - but doesnt so much ape them as digest them into a new animal whose lineage cant be conclusively traced to any one line.

Around 4th Ed, it dipped a little far into into grim self-seriousness for my tastes, but its a picnic compared to the dread Ward era that came with 5th, and the whole thing went to pieces. It has none of the spirit, none of the context, none of the basic understanding of reality and people and what makes 40K work, just a grim dedication to the product as product, and the setting as a vehicle for sales. Not as much as a for fans, by fans process as an engine to give the lowest common denominator their fill, then tell the rest of it that this is all there ever was. Theres been variations on that sad tune since then, but the melody never wavers.

Posted by Badfang Brassaxe on 09 September 2017 - 01:21 PM

Armored Walker started a topic on converting BloodBowl orcs into 40k orks http://www.the-waaag...showtopic=54772 just as I was looking to expand my OozToof?s, and one of the mobs I'm short of is a DeffSkulz nobzmob, and as imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and DeffSkulz are renown for their sincerity......

Well, it wouldn't be a DeffSkulz build if it wasn't looted :thumbs

 

So, yesterday my Scourged Eye BloodBowl team landed, you get two identysprues of six so I pulled the same ones of them off the two sprues and sent one to da painboy

 

IMG_1490.jpg

 

And this morning pulled another one apart too, had a rummage through my nobzbitz box, found some likely looking bitz and started putting them together again - the one in the middle is the standard GW approved build of the one on the left

 

IMG_1495.jpg

 

The kombiskorchaz barrel is a bit higher than it should be 'coz 'is right arm keeps slipping down, but they're about right for size and they've got a proppa skrappy DeffSkulzy sort of look to them - off to carve a few more up now :biggrin

#720939 From Bloodbowl to 40k

Posted by armored walker on 29 August 2017 - 04:00 AM

A little fun project, converting the new Bloodbowl orcs to 40K orks. So far half of them about built, just hand and head swaps really with some GS for gaps.

These guys are bigger than regular boyz, and on 30mm bases:

These guys were the easy part, next I'll try to do the same thing again with different results. As there are two identical sprues in the box, I'll try to make the boyz look slightly different with some re-positioning of arms and legs, and also to give every boy a different helmeted head to increase diversity.

 

As I've got some free time this week, you might see some results actually quite soon. :biggrin

#716645 da Mad Grot builds a trukk

Posted by Mad Grot Docsnik on 26 March 2017 - 11:25 PM

Flakka Dakka Trukk, Moar Dakka Edition...

trukk_05.jpgOkay, I'm real proud... uh chuffed... with how this turned out. Not to say that I won't add glyphage or other tidbits of detailing, but the turret and gunz are done (minus final gluing) and I'm  happy with 'em. I think they'll even pop more after paint which will bring up some of the odd details (like the fire extinguisher), although that's probably a couple weeks away (given other projects getting in the way).

#716464 da Mad Grot builds a trukk

Posted by Mad Grot Docsnik on 16 March 2017 - 10:36 AM

Pretty boring title, eh? Everybody builds trukks all the time. Yeah, well, it's been eons since I built anything mek. This trukk kit was a Christmas gift from... oh hell, like eight or ten years ago. :blush So I figured I'd go ahead and finally do the project I had planned way back then. Here's what I've managed in the last fortnight.

 

The trukk is assembled to the point that it's ready for paint. Gunner, driver, and such left separate for ease of painting. The rest of the "accessories" are still WIP.

trukk_01.jpg

 

The plan is simple: one trukk, three beds. The first one will be the out-of-the-box trukk bed. The second will be a near-as-I-can-mek-it copy, but full of boyz. That's right, ten trukk boyz, glued in place, doing the usual... shootin', preparin' to drop the boarding plank, punchin each uvva inda face, you know, da usual. And then, since you're already dealing with a magnetized bed, why not make a flakka dakka gun as a nice, noisy, shooty option.

 

The flak gun is inspired by the WWII German Wirbelwind and American Quad .50 cal. It's nowhere near complete, but I've got the basics down. The turret will go onto the round platform (and be able to rotate). The guns still need some sort of hub attachment to the turret. They should be able to elevate if I get it right. The platform will need to be mounted onto a magnetized bed to match the others (which I haven't started yet).

 

So you can see why I'm not much of a mad mek... only this accomplished in two weeks. I sweat little details that aren't even visible and simple things (like cutting p-card straight) give me fits. And all the while I think what a :bleep this is going to be to paint. Gork and Mork, I love this hobby! :biggrin

Posted by Sukigod on 29 November 2015 - 08:38 PM

So this whale is back on the bench :)

 

Now it's down to the details; pick one, knock it out and move on to the next one. Pretty soon I should be done.

 

The metallics took for ever and it's not a dramatic change from back when I put it on hold again. I'll be finishing off the wing details first, then on to the deff arsenal - which I'm is going to suck since I made it so danged detailed. Anyway, here's some pics of progress.

#708496 The Completed Ork Tactica, Take 2

Posted by laughterofgods on 20 August 2015 - 03:35 PM

As many of you may know the Waaagh Website has been giving me problems with posting my Tactica.  It didn't like the gigantic walls of text I was trying to insert into the previous thread.  For the time being I am not going to try again.  Instead, I have compiled the entire thing into a PDF and made it available for download.  For now it is just available through Dropbox, but hopefully at some point it will become available directly through The Waaagh so that we can attract new players.  Anyways, the Table of Contents lists the various sections and acts as links to those sections.  There is also an Index where I tried to cross reference things in case you wanted more info on a specific unit or somesuch.  I hope you enjoy.

 

:cheers

#725330 From Bloodbowl to 40k

Posted by armored walker on 27 April 2018 - 01:48 AM

I've been kinda off the hobby for some time lately, as we had to move away while some renovations were done in our home. Now we're back to new sewers, new bathroom, new electrick wiring, the werks. The place should be good for the next 50 years now, I might even have paid the loan by then!

 

I took my paints and some models to our evac place, and tho' I did not much feel like painting, somethings got done anyway.

As you can see these guys are Evil Suns, I haven't done those in a while. Emblem to prove it:

I thought to add some diversity by painting their clothes different colours, the similar armor bitz will unify the look. It's slow going as I started painting the armor chipped and worn.

#719854 Ork hate?

Posted by Dim_Reapa on 18 July 2017 - 01:14 PM

There's hatedoms for everything. That includes hatedoms.

 

I've not encountered much "hate" for Orks offline. Online, quite a bit. The only point of criticism I've ever seen that bothers me is the one that asserts that Orks are not inkeeping with 40k's Grimdark theme, and are too "zany", and thus don't fit. To me, that just reaks of a poor understanding of 40k fluff, what it is, and how Orks fit within it. Partly because Orks aren't funny. Other than that, it's differing tastes, and sour grapes, really.

 

My advice is simple. If you can defend, justify and find happiness with your love of Orks, then their opinions are entirely immaterial. All they can do is disagree, and if you're happy with Orks they don't matter.

 

The best solution is to be a good Ork player. Be a great ambassador for the faction, and show the rest of the community how cool we are and how awesome our stuff is. I find that a community that has one or two established good Ork players end up with the opinion that Ork Players are fun and that they add to the player community experience. That's how to change stuff like that.

#710361 Scratch Built Ork Big Rig (well mostly...)

Posted by Kiblams on 20 November 2015 - 11:15 AM

Hey guys,
 

I am new to the forum and love the kustomizin' that goes on here, I feel very much at home! :)

I have been working on this project for a while now, and I have yet to share it with you all on here. I will post the most up to date photos and I can link you to some WIP threads if you wanna see them.
 
Here it is:
 
3058-1447328259-131944c450ae16747c7889ba
 
The trailer is magnetised so it can have two halves swapped out, I only have a full flatbed and the tanker attachments made so far though.

I am not sure where I stand on uploading videos from my Youtube channel, so if you could let me know I can show those too :)
 
Thanks for looking!
