Finished up the Kill Krusha yesterday early enough that I could dig these buggies out of their storage tray & start throwing a little paint on them. The rokkit launchas are magnetized, for easy turning/removal. The buggies are mostly trukk kits, with a few bike parts thrown in, and I think they came out pretty well. They are, however, going to be a :bleep to paint, simply because there's so many little nooks and crannies I can't reach with a brush. Anyway, gave them an initial dry-brush of Tin Bitz, painted the drivers' trousers grey & started in on the tires. More to follow soon: First - for scale purposes: Buggy_scale_pic.JPG Here's the skwadron: Buggies_built_front.JPG Buggies_built_left.JPG Buggies_built_right.JPG
So - whenever dem doks finish staplin' yer arms back on Haky, why don't you an yer boyz come down fer a visit. We'll 'av a few squigaritas, throw a few grots around an' discuss who dis 'ere choppa really belongs to...

These Waaaghs are a cross between a mass migration, holy crusade, looting party and pub crawl, with a bit of genocide thrown in for good measure.

The buggies look really good. Could we get some close ups of them? Are they going to be painted like your Kill krusha/ blasta? (Which I still want to knick... Looks too good for it's own good.)

You have some really nice looking buggies there! (...which I believe would look very neat with a red paintjob, however that's another story ;) ...)

Thank you for the kind words Killbless & Draksaar - I'll be painting these this week, & will post some close-up pics as I go. The details will be easier to distinguish when everything isn't the same color.

These will be blue - or at least will have blue highlights. If I painted them red someone might think I'd "borrowed" them from Hakbash. If I don't paint them blue what's to stop some no gud lootin git (also Hakbash) from tryin ter nick 'em off me?

I have been hesitating on this tank (Kill Krusha) for a while now - but seeing this pushes me over the line of desire to must have. This is terrific. I can't wait to see the buggies finished. I am not a fan of the blue - but I acknowledge that there are other Orks in the universe - grudgingly - Anyway, love the models and the mix of drivers is a great touch. You could have stuck with one build and things would have looked alright but you made each one unique (which to me is extremely meaningful - I have seen too many deffkopta buggy conversions). Great job.

Thank you for the positive words Stormboy! I got caught up with work and other RL concerns for a bit, but I finally got a couple hours to pick up the paint brush again this afternoon & to snap a few quick pics. These are still very much WIP, only the base colors are done - but I'm confident I'll be able to start throwing on the washes tonight, and possibly move on to mud & dirt by Sunday! Anyway, here're the pics: Group shot: Buggies_WIP_Group_Shot.JPG Buggy #1 Buggies_WIP_1a.JPG Buggies_WIP_1b.JPG Buggy #2 Buggies_WIP_2a.JPG Buggies_WIP_2b.JPG Buggy #3 Buggies_WIP_3a.JPG Buggies_WIP_3b.JPG

Managed to finish up the buggies today - it's raining out, so the pictures are a tad darker than usual (taken on the porch instead of the backyard). Anyway, I'll post those photos over in the Trophy Rack. Here I'll post the last item from my March painting threat - the FW Kommander figure that came with the Kill Blasta. He had no feet when I got him, but a quick trade with at the local GW and I got myself one of the new plastic bosses, who promptly donated his feet to this build. The feet aren't a perfect match, and the pose is very static - but this guy was intended to be standing in the open hatch of a tank, so you really can't expect a very dynamic pose. Anyway, I'm going to give him a good wash & see about priming him/starting painting a bit later. For now, here's a really awesomely detailed FW ork boss who isn't seen very often.

Nice buggies Nosher. :thumbs Just a shame about the unproppa colour. ;) Good idea giving the Tank Kommanda some feet - you'll have a pretty unique boss when you're done. What about the footless AOBR boss though - maybe give him roller skates? :biggrin

@DocNuk - it was surprisingly hard to find feet that would match this mini - made me wish I had some decent greenstuff-skills, but since I suck with GS... I do think the AoBR boss matched the FW commander pretty well, maybe you could still swap his feet before painting?

too late. i painted it a few weeks ago and they still looks too small. but i could rip them off again (even if the are pinned and glued with a piece of gs to get a smoother changeover) maybe a solution is to add some "teeth" made from plastic card to the front.
