You spend all day painting and texturing it and if you pay enough attention to detail and care with the brushwork, if you're good enough you can end with something that looks like a piece of junk - congrats :cheers

 

Krew anytime soon?

That's the plan, exhaust and engine block need a bit of work, highlights to the power cables and the boss finished and maybe if there's time i'll dig out a snotling with a spanner to fight off the squig!

As much as i love your usual scheme based around all the green, all the brown on the latest addition really works for me. Largely I just approve of something that's gonna stand out from the rest of the army like this will - but also I just like the contrast between the brown and green.

Like the extra details & the paint scheme. :love I'm sure there is a lot that I am missing. Well done!! :thumbs :thumbs

 

P.S. Just curious; is the squig there serving as a mascot/pet, there to bite the nob in the backside, or as yet unused ammunition? :?  :lol

So, after the mega-gane at the Waaagh! meet da meks didn't have much to do after hammering out all the dents in the kill tank so, i put them to work on what will be a big zzapa big trakk until we see the new codex:

Must 'ave been quite a few dents in da kill tank ;) Latest piece is looking awesome as usual  - when painted its genuinely tricky to tell the difference between plasticard and plastic on your stuff. Dat's impressive.  :biggrin

Da Meks worked through the night i think, the amount of damage it absorbed was incredible KFF or no.

Here's da new tank, almost complete bar the rivots.

Packing a big zappa and duel rokkits i look forward to it missing every shot like it's cousin da zapp tank did in the last mega battle, if it does hit though it can do up to 18 wounds a turn, 12 of those mortal wounds.

Things I like about this tank:
1. The zap gun. What is that made from? And yes that is quite enough power cables.
2. The turret is quite conservative by your standards. Not knocking the big turrets, but I loves me a diverse army.
3. The crew/driver compartment out the front. It looks like they slapped half a dread on the front there!

The zzap gun is... man what is it again? Lol,l

A plasma cannon from a lanky beekie dredd, nozzel is from a genestealer cult mining laser, it also has the backpack from a beakie devestators gravgun and a battery pack from somewhere.

I have another one of these to make which i'm going for a multi-turret system with rokkits and another big zappa.

The battery pack is the one part i recognised. Sentinel multilaser if I'm not mistaken.

Cut from the side of the same mining laser the nozzel comes from actually, they are very similar though.

Waaagh! Mek-Klaw - Battle of Uggroth Pass

Waaagh! Mek-Klaw
Units: Booma Boyz 4th Mek Blasta Korps, Booma Boyz 1st Troopa Boyz
Commander: Rugga Squiggly-Fing Smasha

VS

Some pointee 'edded panzee gitz who shouldn't be there
Units: A load'o gitz
Commander: A panzee git

Background: Uggroth Pass is a large merchantile city on the Imperial planet of Boreas IV, part of the Boreal System currently experiencing the brunt of Mek-Klaw's Waaagh! During the bombardment and occupation of the city by Da Boom Boyz grot runners reported unusual activity in sector 3. After a sustained and at some points violent argument with his underlings over where exactly Sector 3 was, it was agreed that Rugga Squiggly-Fing Smasha would lead a force to find the source of the grot's tales and smash it.

Deployment: Rugga deployed with his infantry, 60 boyz with shootas and big shootas in the centre covered by a kff Big Mek, a Painboy and a Weirdboy covered by ruins, backed up by the Kill Bursta in the centre and Big Trakks on the left and right flanks, three Zzap gunz and a squad of 10 lootas deployed in ruins on the left flank.

The panzee deployed with three squads of Guardians, one each flank and the centre backed up with Dire Avengers who were escorting a trio of warlocks, on the left flank were also a squad of War Walkers and a wraithlord and the right flank also held a squad of Howling Banshees, a squad of Swooping Hawks were also held in reserve.

The Battle: Rugga's ladz spotted the panzees as they approached the junction and launched their attack before the panzee forces had time to react, due to unfortunate deployment the Kill Bursta managed to get a hit on the three Warlocks, killing two and wounding another who promptly scrambled behind the Dire Avengers. On the left the zzapgun battery and orky tanks opened up on the warwalkers, killing one while the lootas opened fire at the Dire Avengers, killing six.

In response the panzee returned fire with little effect, most crackled off the Big Mek's kustom forcefield but a couple of boyz and 4 lootas were taken out of action.

The volley of fire didn't phase the orks who advanced through the ruined container yard in front of them almost unscathed, accompanied by Rugga and his entourage, they fired into the remaining Dire Avengers and all but one were either slain or fled.

The Ork big gunz and tanks on the left opened up again doing serious damage to the War Walkers and Wraithlord, loosing a few grot gunners in reply from another barrage of inneffective return fire from the panzee, on the right Guardians and Howling Banshees moved up, the Banshees failing a charge attempt and the Swooping Hawks lept onto the board blasting a few more Orks who were well protected by the KFF Big Mek.

Upon reaching the centre of the board, Ruggar split his hoard in order to launch simultaneous assaults on the Guardians and the Banshees on the right flank, wiping them both out only to receive horrific casulties from the remaining panzee firing at point blank, Warboss Rugga lost his ladz in the charge on the Howling Banshees and found himself at the end of the barrel of ten panzee scouts in an old administration building in the centre of the battlefield, ten shots were fired from the panzee snipers but Rugga was left unphased.

From here on the panzee force were unable to match the sheer quantity of the Orks' fire power, lootas and the boyz rapidly began to finish off the remaining infantry and the zzapguns killed off the Wraithlord on the left flank.

The panzee forces, unable to weather the attrition like the Orks collapsed from this point on, their retreat turning into a full rout when flanked by the remaining ork boyz, leaving the field of battle to the orks!
