Overall wanted a Turret that could represent 4 Rokkits or 4 big shootas..., so went with some sort of overblown Cannon system.

Seems to fit the shape of the model though far, not 100% on the Driver, may just make an enclosed cab instead.

Yet more progress on the first Hover wagon.

Started the engines, the Troop area, and more progress on the armor/Glyphs.

Still lots to do before I start the next one (or... Return to the stompa)

nice job on that glyph!  The engines are looking cool - are you going to build a housing around them as well?

"he boss, we needz a new driver again!"

inspired build. b

ut add a shield behind the driver so he issn't killed by his own gun. :D


In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness which starts to set in at about 2:55, when you know that you've had all the baths you can usefully have that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the papers you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o'clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.

Aye, was considering that... Or just a grot with a Mop.


I think the next ones are going to be enclosed cabs.

Yet more progress, this time with proper colors!

With this being the prototype for more, I Can overlook the... Suicidal driver for now, and fix that little bit with the next one.  I'm also thinking of a huge glyph on the front facing for the next one, something with lots of Teeth.

My gods, None, this is a thing of beauty.  Would you mind terribly if I looted the idea?

Go ahead, I've got another 5 to build, having different takes on the same sort of design will help with further inspiration!

Hover Wagon #2 begins... So far just some cutting & Quick armor plates.

20160224_110809_zpsn2gxfmgo.jpg



Started building the fast attack section of the army, Starting with some buggies

These have been primed so now await some Paint before they are game ready... but I had fun building them, the zanyness of having the steering be part of the weapon... Just think of these things turning at HIGH speed thanks to the driver getting distracted and firing off some rokkits.

Hover Wagon #2 Update:
20160229_201101_zpshaqtnkk3.jpg
20160229_201111_zpsz3mmn3rf.jpg


Started work on the armor plate and Cab, Still got loads more to do such as Rivets & bitz.



Stompa also got some attention today with shoulder pads and rivets... Hoping to get the torso primmed later on today, and begin work on the head.

I picked them up from "Dollarama", Pretty sure they should still be stocked for another few months at most of the locations.

"he boss, we needz a new driver again!" :D

:lol Too funny. Reminds me of Indiana Jones the last Crusade when Sr. shoots the tail of the plane to shreds.

 

That glyph is dead sexy.

 

I'd keep the open topped driver compartment. Adds to the comic relief. Maybe throw on some gubbinz & worky bitz make it look like there could be a force field protecting him.

Agreed, or maybe just nail a thick armour slab to the back of his helmet.

Progress Update!

First Up: The Stompa gets more work done!

20160303_121635_zpsj2tbxqqv.jpg
20160303_1216480_zpsslhuiplv.jpg


Since the last update the torso was Riveted, primed, and has had the first base coats done. Still need to finish the lighter tones of yellow over most of the armor before washes and final details.... but Progress is progress!


Next up: My First Nob joins the Waaagh, built off the re-released Grukk Kit (Which I'll be getting more of!), This is to replace the weedier Nobs that were leading my boy squads. I hope to eventually have enough of them to field the full force the Warboss sized Nobs and... Nob sized boys.

20160303_121738_zpsmsgbbgjl.jpg



Lastly... some Loota boyz (Or... Meks, yet to really decide, but their guns look fancy and deadly!)

20160303_121814_zpsl6ttmymq.jpg

I took away an Eye from each of them, making their Scopes actually work... As I can easily picture an ork complaining after looking through a scope with both eyes open, and defeating the entire purpose of the scope.
