I have been working hard the last few days, making my own Flash Git kaptin (count as Badrukk), Flash Gits, and also something special... first the gits and the kaptin. ;)

The Gits whilst WIP.

Started painting. I must point out that they are actually not Bad Moons, but unproppa Blood Axes with desert camo! :D

And here are some pics of the good kaptin himself. He started out as a Big mek (WIP thread can be found here).

Oh how I have tried different desert camos on my boys. In the end, a simple beige/yellow was the only one that worked. I have read somewhere that the GW studio doesnt paint camo on their infantry either, only the tanks. Its to small on infantry and makes them look strange (kinda the point of camo, but not good for the tabletop).

So, what do you think about my blork Flash Gits? :)

And, I have also made something spechul. After getting totally krumped by fish'ead Battlesuits, my few surviving meks started working on battlesuits of their own! Orks never let a good idea go to waste, and battlesuits are a really good idea. :dakka

So, I checked through the codex, and the deffkopta entry works equally well for an ork battlesuit in my humble opinion. Aslong as the suit is beefy enough atleast.
Also, The bigbomm entry was too good an idea to pass up on a suit-like model.
Anyway, this is still PIP, but im quite happy how he turned out. There is a plastic Blork under all that plasticard. I will build 4 more, for a full unit of 5. :)

Please feel free to give modelling advice, since I will build more Gits and Deffsoots.

Those ladz look great, very shooty and perfect for flashgitz. Using an armor suit to represent a deffkopta is a great idea and it came out wonderfully. I'd love to see any WIP shots you had. If you plan on doing more with big bombz you could try bundles of stikkbombz or dynamite. I think those would make good representations for a big one. Very proppa even if they are desert camo blood axes. How did you achieve such a smooth yellow?

I may as well paint myself blue, because every time I look at a project I see something I want to loot! In this case...everything! The Gitz are proppa, Badrukk is Badass...and my favorite: Da Deffsoot!

Absolutely brilliant! :biggrin :thumbs I love the gitz and the "Deffsoot" is inspired! Brilliantly modelled and well painted, nice one :D Maybe the next suit could have a little pair of wings? with weapons on them, and the ork could have some sort of "kontrolla" :lol
Thanks for reading my post.

Yeah more Blorc Flashgitz I really like your snazzguns. I think FlashGitz epitomize Orkiness. I've been wanting to do another set, I think next time I'm gunna do them w/ cyborc bodies. I like the way Badrum came out, the addition of the Nid armour livens him up a bit, lets people know he takes on any challenger.
The battlesuit deffcopta is truly inspired. I love giant stick o' boom he's toting around Well done :thumbs

These are absolutely fantastic, and has inspired me to go back to my Cybork Flash Gits, which are currently stuck together, but without weapons. Love the Deffsoot, I may have to loot that for something or other, possibly for a small Bad Moonz force, or maybe a Blood Axe force which is Krumpin for da Greata Gud

The Ork battlesuit is a great idea that you pulled off well with a very nice and Orky model. I too would like to see some WIP shots and maybe some info on how you built it. Lugnut

Nice work.

Hi
Just wanted to say 'well done!' though admittedly sarcasticly
Not only this the above post completely unconstructive and not insightful in the least.. around ere we call that Spam.
But you also posted into a thread which hadnt beeing posted into in over two years.

The shear idiocy of it made me smile. Havent had a craptastic post like that in a while.

You have done a great job 40k-ifying those BlOrks! On of the best black ork conversion jobs I have seen pass through these pages... I also think the idea behind your deffkopta/battlesuit is strong. Thanks for the inspiration.

wow dude these look awesome. I think blorcs only really work for one thing and thats flash gits. Love the chunkyness of the deffsoot. Having a unit of 5 of them would look great.
theres no greater thing than the WAAAAGGHH!

The Deffkopta Suit is just incredible. It's not often that I feel I have to loot an idea, but in this case I think I'm going to have to. It's just so well designed that I have to have one (or three). If you have time to write up a basic tutorial, I'd be a happy Ork.

The Flashgits are great as well, but I do have one complaint: their guns are too big and propa to realistically represent their in-game role :lol ! I think they'd be awesome Lootas, but it's just hard to think guns that huge would only be Strength 5 Assault 1 (or 2, maybe) weapons. Not that you'd get any complaints from opponents, but if you don't have any Lootas in your army yet, it might be worth using them that way.

This Mek is seriously thinking about looting the Deffkopta suit koncept for his own deffkoptas. Incredibly ingenuity and piece of hard work as well as art. Love it :love Where you got this metal mittens from? Black Orcs of Wahammer Fantasy?

Thanks for all the kind comments! They really make me wanna do more of these, and I will take lots of WIP pics, both of the building and the painting. :) Stuart, I must say I think their guns fit perfectly for their profile, as I always buy them more dakka and shootier. They fire as as much as a deffgun, wound as easily against most stuff, but often cut right trough the thickest armour. In my experience, they have quite alot nastier firepower vs infantry than Lootas. Though, lootas cost a wee bit less. :P I also have lootas with lascannons and autocannons. They get the big long-range guns, and the gits get the big short-range guns. :) And for those who are wondering, all these models are made from the plastic Black Orcs, but with some metal Nobs heads (except the Deffsoot, who has a normal ork head. and the kaptin, who has a plastic blorc head). I have also used some plasticard (especially for the Deffsoot), and some greenstuff (for the Gits and kaptin). More pics will follow. :thumbs

The Waaagh is stunned by your models, Totgeboren. The posing is dynamic, and natural looking enough for something over the top like Flashgitz. The painting is ecellent too, but I have a word of advice: tiger stripes! The blood axes are known for their obnoxious camo, and it is simple enough to do if you have a steady hand. The battlesuit is incredible of course and totally works. Is that a plasticard plate over his face? This is real inspiration to post pics of my own blorc gitz and start painting them.

Unmistakably Flash Gitz. Excellent work! I was having second thoughts about using blorc parts, you've convinced me otherwise.
