This one is pretty cool, but the big, bright symbol does make me think it would sit well in some sort of Ork music video. Perhaps a little too clean and overly designed. Other than that it's groovy. The big gun is just awesome though.

Awesome work! What paint do you use? I would imagine GW paints run our very fast when used for terrain. :cheers

Fantastic! The only thing I see that could be better has already been pointed out. The white background for the big glyph could do with some dirtying up, and the text on the canister should be covered up. But this is absolutly fantastic. Your attention to detail really bring them to life. :cheers Just gotta ask. Are the walls made from the inside packaging you get in Aftereight boxes? :)

Great stuff. I agree that the whilte outline of the glyph... whilst making it realy stand out... does look off. Maybe coz its just so very white.

You could keep the contrast effect of the white background on the symbol by painting it as metal. Just make it a shinier metal than the rest of the base. Also I agree with the rest that the Gatoraid lettering has to go.

I use ceramacoat paints for all my stuff. I've been using the same paints for over 8 years. Back when I bought them they were only .79$ each. Woohoo! These terrain pieces are truly stunning. I just started to build some buildings and I can see many ideas I will be looting. I also agree about the gatorade logo needing to be obscured. Great builds, awesome paint.

ok ok :choppa
i pimped the Blood Ax glyph so it loos more grungy... rusty metal was the choice. I painted it white at first for contrast. The original paint job had a black border and it didnt stand out at all. Thanks for the suggestions, i think rusty metal works good.

I like the big mek as he is. I think thats the only metal fig in my 3000 pts ork horde that I havnt converted. :P Really great paintjob all round I must say. Really top-notch work. Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff here. :cheers

I don't think the Big Mek's head is that bad. It is not the best ork head in the range - but it is not that bad. The rest of the mek is a good sculpt. He is a bit static, but that looks purposeful since he is leaning on his axe. The goblin sitting in the backpack is a different story. That is THE WORST grot/gobbo head I have seen on a GW mini in well over a decade. In fact, it is probably one of the worst GW sculpts in at least 10 years - even Gary Morley dd better stuff.

apparently Captain Corteaz was voted the worst GW sculpt, ever......

I just dont like the head, the ears are nice, but the rest of the head needs a PK in its face, I also dont like the KFF and the arm that is holding the KFF control..... there's something Panzee about it..... dunno why....

The rest of the body is quite nice, the details are good, and it's a good pose for a mek, except that he's way to static, the head should be angled so that he's looking at his KFF control.

Captain Cortez was indeed a poor model - although 90% of Gary Morley' sculpts were worse. However, Cortez did have an excellent backpack which is worth ordering in large quantities for anyone planning on doing a crimson fist army - or even imperial fists.

Capt. Cortez is the disco-dancing beakie, right? Anyways. I like the glyph-sign much more now that it's grittier.

the shanty town building is looking really good. some other buildings- mek shop, the bosses building, a coms tower, a tank factory, scrap piles, watch towers, fungus farm, shooting range, and some stuff like that. You might want to look at the ork town comp thats being held in the arena for some more ideas.

Looking through your models, it seems that you are consistantly doing great work.

however, the stormboy just doesnt do it for me.

orks looting drones, yes ( http://i164.photobuc...oteddrones1.jpg is my biker drone)
i think you need to make the drone look more looted, and less like the boy just hitched a ride.

I want to use drones for my jetpacks too, but i am going to fix them to my boys backs and build little boosters into the drones.
lose the fish'ead guns on the model too... imo orks wouldnt still have them on there, they look much to flimsy.
