Haven't been actively posting on The-Waaagh, but here we go... an attempt to keep me motivated.

What I currently have in line to be taken care of-5 lootas, 30ish shoota boyz and 9 slugga boyz
Posted Image

Some partially assembled shoota boyz, the other half are still on the sprue
Posted Image

5 partial lootas
Posted Image

Remaining shoota boyz
Posted Image

Other things-warboss, 20ish slugga boyz, 2 warbuggies/wartrakks, 4 warbikes, and 3 deffkoptas
Posted Image

As of right now I have:
Finish assembling:
-5 lootas
-3 deffkoptas
-30 shoota boyz
-9 slugga boyz

Finish painting
-1 warboss
-20 slugga boyz
-5 nobz
-2 warbuggies
-4 warbikes

For the shootas and lootas, should I leave the weapons off and paint them separately? I have tried this before, but plastic glue dosent bind paint, so before priming them black should I blue-tack the joints?

I am pretty bad at taking photos (as anyone could tell) and I haven't taken any good shots of painted orks to show, but later I (hope :thumbs ) I will :biggrin
If the pictures are too big, I will resize them again :cheers
Let's see how this goes...

Simple update with some stuff I have been working on, along with a teaser ;)
Lootas

Shootas (Bodies based)

Some nearly completed sluggas

WIP shooty battlewagon

Some plasticard equivalent work

Going to make the tracks double-wide and really give it a sense that it was looted
Posted Image

At my local store, I got annihilated by a space wolf player-everything I had was gone by turn 3, and nearly beat a tyranid player. After playing a little in a kill team game and talking to some of the guys, an older player literally chucked a bunch of tank bitz at me.
Posted Image
A part of a leman russ, and some pieces of a chimera/basilisk.
Posted Image
All of the wheels and tracks plus a metal demolisher flap.

Preview at what is to come, and yes it will be blue and orky :lol
Posted Image


For basing, I'm not sure what colors or style I should base them, any suggestions?
I'm using my brother's Nikon Coolpix P60 to take pictures, is that any good for up close? I have another camera, will try it out later.

You can't go wrong with a looted russbucket but i would recommend swapping out those umie big-bolters for some more killy big shootaz. Also, looted tanks always look better when they have at least one big hole in the side that's been patched up. Kind of like the "killing blow" that finished off the tank before the ladz went in a looted it. - The dood
One of the many reasons why orks are more fun to play; Bosspoles:

"Roight ladz!, Barry's dead, an' if you don't kill dat fing Steve's dead too, alroight!!?"

Thanks, I have some old (the old trukk) big shootas, and some of the new ork boy sprue ones. I will definitely add some plasticard , but the nearby hobby store was closed the last couple of days. As soon as I can get some I'll add the kill-shot and repair it. D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y... sheesh >:

Looted Demolisher/Battlewagon
This is my first project using plasticard, and I'm pretty pleased at how it turned out-its not quite done, still want some feedback form other members. For the thick plating I used 1mm card, for the little plates on the left track side I used .10mm, and used a combination of 1mm, then .10mm, and finally 1mm for the track system.

On the engine system, I'm going to add a "tube" from the fuel tank to the engine block, but I don't know how the exhaust looks. The way I attached the rear block to the back of the tank put it at an angle.. Should I devise a way to have it stick relatively up?
Next time I do this I'm probably going to make the tracks smaller, to make the turns more graceful.

Any advice and suggestions are needed! Please!

I wouldn't worry too much about the engine exhaust not being exactly vertical. Orks don't really care about aesthetics as much as humans do if it works... its good. I think your tracks need some more detailing on the plates, although your blooprint has some so hopefully you already knew that. I would however try to get them much closer together as right now they have a lot of space in between each one. One last thing, do you want it to look more Orky cause right now it looks like a umie tank with new engine. More armor plates and some glyphs should solve that easily.
Deffskulls: if it ain't bolted down its fair game...and if it is they will still try to "loot" it.

Above is the rough shape of the turret.
The hull is from part of an old leman russ some guy threw at me, with the sides made out of 2mm plasticard, then the GW tracks (I know I'ma beast :) ) and 1 mm plasticard with some details. I took a lot of inspiration from Scarpia, such as here http://garbo.org/40k...roozawagon.html

More pics in a min, need to make em smaller ;)

Took some inspiration from HagenHellkite... Well I looked at a pile of bitz, and decided I should try this. Pretty decent outcome... And the result is a very WIP 'ard nob. The power claw arm came out the way it did because of where I cut the burna arm, and how I attached it to the power claw. The combination of the body pose and power claw arm gave me an image of a belligerent nob shouting WAAAGH! in the enemies face before splitting him in pieces. I had to get an arm to match the pose, but it looks a little weedy (went through three(!) of those arms trying to bulk it up, gave up :sowhat )

Thats a good looking Nob you got there :thumbs I have noticed, however, that the "thumb" of the power claw is backwards. Just fix that and give the lad a bit more height an he's all good :D

Thanks! I used the orc boss body and legs from the orc command sprue, then a black orc head with the rest being 40k parts. He stands about the same height as an ork nob from the boyz sprue. The reason I had the thumb the way it was because if it were the other way, it would look like it would crush rather than split. However I made the thumb look less like it did to match the other parts of the claw. I added a boss pole and some more parts to the claw, but I need more glue.. .got to get some :sowhat

Well I decided to make some terrain as the chaos beakies keep beating me because of the small amount I have. So Because of me getting krumped at home I decided I would make a semi modular table, with 30 12ftsquare pieces of hardboard. It would be a city, with 14 of them being some city terrain and 16 being some road terrain. Here is something I started yesterday...

Love seeing all these tanks lately. Good stuff going on here. really nice work on the tracks so far. Now for the terrain. :thumbs Very nice. I like the damaged sections you've added as well as the pipe. As for the ramp, I don't know if any models will stand on it given the angle, but maybe if you put a small amount of rubble, or perhaps a strip of styrene they would stay.

 

Do you plan on doing anything to front face? I don't think it would take much. Vertical strips running the length of the wall and perhaps trim around the windows. Of course rivets. But that would all go a long way into giving a nice feel.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Luckily with time, a good amount of work was accomplished  :thumbs 

I should have known better than to post a new thread while linking to a ~7 year old thread haha, for that I apologize. I wanted a way to start new with some higher quality content while still referencing some old posts - hopefully, if its not too much of an issue, Mad Grot Docsnick or another staff member could lock this. 

After some hard painting work this summer, all of the boyz seen in the previous pictures, plus a good number, have all been painted. All vehicles and bikes have been stripped down and disassembled, and are in a queue for future work. I'm waiting to paint up some more boyz before I build a bunch of vehicles, and will paint them once I invest in an airbrush. As far as the terrain goes ... I still have it! However, its all been packed away (moving, etc). 

You can check out the newer stuff here

Yeah, I noticed the extreme threadomancy earlier, but it's not much of an issue these days, so I let it ride in case Beingmad was going to add something.
