interesting concept for those big horns... i like it... has a oriental feel to it... overall looks awsome, would lie more pictures of the back and such, but the colour use is nice to see.... edit: also not to be offencive, but you big mek does not look much bigger than a standard boy.... though it is obvious he is based on a "evy armoured nob" body, why is he a big mek? just cause he has a burner?

Very nicely done. :thumbs I like the flamer, and the dual paint on them. I like the war boss too. I like the hat, the fish'ead flyer. The onything I would change is the rocket launcher, its not bad. Just not my cup o tea. Other than that nice job :biggrin

I really like the Bib Mek. Strong Character, paint job and uge Burna! I think he just looks a bit small next to that monster burna. I especially like the white and blue shoulder pads! More please. :cheers

I like the rocket, It looks really slapped together, maybe adding a couple of dred rockets in a backpack or something would help. I like your basing, how did you do the gravel, is it painted, or real sand/gravel au natural?

Nice job on both of those. Just thinking about your Big Mek maybe he needs more gubbins then just a burna so he looks like the main man. I take it he is based on a Nob so no problem with size.
That ain't gonna work!

'iz noggin is a nobs one that's for sure. He looks awesome, all i could say is to add more gubbinz (as has been mentioned) to make him look more mek-ish, even if he doesn't have meks tools as you play his, its always cooler to have them represented anyways.

I like the mek, the burna is wondefull (especially the tape). I don't think he's small, seeing he's on a proper base and all.

Thanks for the comments guys. I generally try to keep my figures un-cluttered by gubbinz afterall carrying stuff is wot grots is for :whip well that and my eyesight not being 100% means I dont like to have to paint too much detail. I'll try and chuck up more of my army when I get more piccies. @ 40KDad - The bases are just standard GW gravel PVA'ed on & painted with graveyard earth, followed by a 50/50 highlight with white. Then a little flock is glued on. Its easy, looks good & draws attention away from my (occasionally dodgy) painting while helping to give a unified feel to the whole army. All the best DM :cheers

They look nice. That burna is huge, looks good an proppa. How did you do the tape?

Its just a paper strip wrapped around a pin then liberally coated in superglue.

Originally an idea in a John Blanche sketch on how to make purity seals. I use it all the time now.

Cool, thanks. I'll have to try that instead of using GS. It might be a little dangerous though, I have a habit of glueing myself so things, desk, chair, floor, you know, the usual things. ;)

I really like the Warboss and his fish'ead/Oriental Hat. :thumbs The Big Mek looks good, but the Burna looks a little thin, as does the Big Mek himself. I think since his stats are the same as a Nob's he should be as big and muscular as a Nob.

Orks even make more interesting corpses than Imperials. We're just that good.

Nice models! A little black drybrushed onto the ends of the burnas would look good.

Strange that I havent actually. All my rokkits & Big shootas have blast blackened barrels (try saying that after a few pints of squigg brew :biggrin ) I'll get on to it directly (or as directly as I ever do in my round about way)

your avatar gives me siezeurs... Anyhow i recommend a light drybrush of Snakebite leather, followed by a slightly heavier drybrush of 60/40 SbL/ Chaos Black and finally a heavy drybrush of black. (all this progressivly shrinking the area which you drybrush, towards the end of the nozzel)
