I bought some extra arms from bitz stores.

And the smoke stack? I just cut off the mount points for the normal ones and then just glued it in between the "engine parts" and greenstuffed it a bit to make it look like it fits in.

I'll get a measurement later but the height shouldn't be that different from the stock model.

Thanks for the info.   I much prefer your hulking beast to the typical "look at my arms flailing wildly" look.   I hadn't realized at first glance that you had toned down the exhaust stacks as well;   I have some storage/transportation issues and 3 1/2 inches in height means I can transport the dread standing up.  Over that and he's on his back.

You're welcome.

I never were a fan of the big exhaust style they've got going currently and wanted to make the model more practical for gameplay and transport.
As well as making it look more like an actual ork.

Yes they are, attached to the "ballbearings" of the dread arms to space them out from the body and keep the posability of the model.

Finally gotten back to the hobby and gone on a painting rampage...knocked these three models out in a few days, which is rather fast for me ^^

Still need to work on the bases though, they aren't quite where I want them to be yet.

Finally got some of the lil wuns painted.
Not that impressed with the models I'm sad to say, just because of them being in one piece which made it look like some of the parts were "melted" together and made it very hard to see where the hand ended and the gun began etc.
Then again, the old metal grots are amongst my favorite ork models so I'm probably comparing them unfairly.

Also ran out of basing material, but have ordered some more.

But here they are:

Finished my first Deffkopta (except the base).
Another model done.
Think I may be rushing these a bit too much as the paintjobs are starting to look a bit sloppy.

I'm only viewing these on a phone, but the quality is quite good enough for the resolution available to me. It's way better than I could aspire to.

Bottom pair of meks are my favourite.

The meks were very fun to paint, will have to build a few more of them ^^

Can never have too many mekboys!

Just reached 1500pts fully painted (excluding bases) which is the first time I've ever had 1500pts completely painted.
Now onwards to 2000pts ^^

That's excellent, love the force! Did you come up with a solution to your bases conundrum?

Yup, sure did, the picture of the Deff dread earlier in the thread shows the design of the new bases :)

Lovely looking, I wish I could paint this well. I see a few bases still blank on the main army pic, are they getting the treatment you've done with others in basing them?
If I break it, I'll fix it.

It is, I'm just waiting for some supplies that I ran out of.

And it's really not hard to do, the painting of the army is really simple, there's not much to it honestly ^^
