Progress:

20160523_231425_zpsmtg9do6c.jpg


Due to the size, and... well The amount of detail I want to pack onto the exterior of this thing, I won't be doing any real interior work, so... Cutting some corners by gluing those roofs in place.


Plan for tomorrow is to pack more detail in between the completed sections so far... and rivet the zog out of what is done. Beyond that, Take my dremel to the lower side to rough it up, give it the appearance that it has already bashed aside a few buildings/tanks in the past.

More progress, though Not too much

Started on the Mek who keeps this Fortress moving, "Lefty" Nicknamed such after a bad case of "His-Kustom-Mega-Blasta-Sploded" Syndrome. (also because i couldn't find a right arm that was "Right" For the pose"

Up on his Perch:

20160525_225829_zpsszcpxhxg.jpg



Also stumbled onto the fact that all of my mini turrets are interchangable for locations!... Huzzah for accidental bonus effect!

20160525_225848_zpsbigigiku.jpg
20160525_225855_zps50ndcc20.jpg


Next "Big" step is finishing the top section's base componets so that I can figure out the scale of the turrets.... And as always... yet more detail everywhere that has been worked on so far.

there are no words to describe how awe inspired I am right now. To be able to see those bits and pieces, those cheap toys, and turn them into an ork of art ... genius!

With the new apartment still in progress of moving, I Have had to pause my Hover Fortress construction, Mostly because all of my bits & the actual work bench have been packed up.

That has not however, stopped me from Expanding my WAAAAGH.

Not the best quality picture, but I've got myself 4 boxes of Killa-Kanz, yet another Wazboom BlastaJet, and a box of Grots..
13383824_10153500174331962_1351335402_o.
The Kanz I plan to turn into Dreads, or... Mega-nobz. The blastajet.. I'm not sure what one I'll turn it into. The grots will be for the Hover-Fortress.

The move goes slow so far, Mostly hampered by A few big pieces that are proving a challenge to get into the new place. (The bed for one!). This has slowed down my ability to set up the new workshop, Though that hasn't stopped me from starting work on some smaller projects. Namely.. Those Kan-Dreadz.

13407681_10153507974021962_273913296_n_z

So far, its a quick hackjob to seperate the "hip" section of the Kan, from the upper part, then I add some plastic, rivets and weapons to fill out the torso a tad more. Of these Three, Two are equiped with Rokkits, the Last has Big Shootas. Still got... 9 More to build!

13467357_10153526427796962_302222262_o_zS

So far, I've built 4 Kanz with Grotzookas, 6 Deff Drads, 4 with 2 Rokkits, 2 with 2 Big Shootas,

Still got 2 more Dreads to build, which will probably be carrying the Flame weapons.

the Waagh is growing!

The Kan-Dreadz are really snazzy - the improvements make a big difference :thumbs

 

I wouldn't mind a tax return like that! What do you have in store for that lot, anything particularly kustom?

I'm not sure what build I'll be doing for the planes, But I do have plans to experiment with the Soon to be Morkanauts

The Nobz are going to be yet more Shoota-boyz, and... Grukk will go under the chopping block to become another Nob. (or... big Mek)

Update!


Its been a while, been distracted by other projects and other games, but I got back to building.  Now, to begin, I'll have to start at the beginning. Which was, a buddy of mine looted up an Imperial Knight, and started to get it ready to be played as a beastly Renegade Knight.... and what Mek would I be were I Not to build one to match?

It Started simple enough, bulk up the legs, add some glyphs, some chains, more Hydrolics, you know the simple stuff.

13898712_10153630963871962_1080083569_o_

13898407_10153630963801962_2053015211_o_

Soon one leg was armored up, then the second, On went spikes, blades and Trophies of Knightly Kills 
13901693_10153636771321962_962688486_o_z
13918414_10153636771406962_756493334_o_z

But then I started thinking about the ranged weapons, My Ork horde has thus far been towards the higher tech level of Waaghs, Lots of walkers, Hover weapons, Lasers and machines of doom... So what better way carry this theme on then building massive Zzap weapons to represent the Assault Cannons of the Knight?

With Mental pictures of the Iron Giant going full aggression mode, I set to work.

13978244_10153638546521962_1743374472_o_


Next was the head, Needed something big enough to hold a Nob, but cool enough to draw attention. Went with a closed glass Pilot seat from the Ork Planes, and gave it a mean gob.

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.

13987095_10153646670446962_2138828942_o_

Then came the Base coats of yellow.

13977880_10153647653061962_336758869_o_z


Then... a bunch of Washes and Additonal colors later

13940006_10153649020806962_1254912782_o_


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.

Those are fired .22LRs with bullets re-inserted? If not, it is easy to get some fired 22LRs from a local range (or buddy), and then push lead bullets back in (or filed down styrene rods).

 

Since rimfire 22 rounds are not that hard to cause to fire, it would be sad if an arm fell on the floor and damaged your well done gun arms. Just a small suggestion to be super safe.

 

/signed super safe squirrel   :yes

 

PS, I need to make additional gun arms for my stompas. These look exactly like what I want.

Actually those are fired shells, with Plastic Rokkits inserted. so... No chance of random gunshots from... Fake Kannonz.
