Arr! That sail is proppa! Really gud lookin. I do wonder how the plasticard strips will look like under paint though - esp if you were trying to get them to resemble a wooden hull. It's a good landlubba' pirate force you got there

will have a grot captaing standing on a box. Going to put gunner on other side. will have a roof over captains head so a boy can stand there as well

shapin up

.... oh no we've been boarded!

captains deck holds 4, back compartment 4, and front holds 4 driver and gunner. Can fit meganobs inside captains quarters as well! Considering cutting out the roll bar w/ chain and hook on it because could possibly carry 2 MANZ up top, 1 in front, and 1 in captains quarters currently.. could possibly get 2 there w/ that roll bar gone..


I don't know why I wan't my trukks to actually carry their payload... but I do... Ha


Still need to make a back of captains quarters so that it's not exposed.. and give some windows over that I beam framing. The door on back will be hinged to open for easy access to models





On the wood grain, I plan on scratcing parallel marks/squiggles on eaching piece, and possibly hit it all with a little sand paper before/after. (this will happen prior to rivets going on)


When I do this to trukk #2 soon... I will be sanding the plank plasticard before cutting it up and gluing it on.. haha :cheers


What else does it need lads?

thanks for the encouragement!


Lady on way home from her folks so this may be all the major stuff I get done for a bit. Still gotta figure out the steering/captain, the big shoota.

Started putting paralely squiggles in the boards to create wood grain effects, looks alright enough

Got ladder steps put on but they didn't show up.



I need to put some stuff in captains quarters to make it more homely.. mayhbe a mushroom box, hog leg with choppa (out of way so models can be placed)


Also need a divider from the main deck and his quarters. a physical one all the way down would prevent model placement though... was thinking of like drop down cloth that is bundles up at the top/out of use so its open?


Would I just get tissue and coat with pva glue with twine wrapped around it or?



Anyhow... Figure another orky face wouldn't hurt it...




Gotta name er too.... Was thinkin da land-lubba'

I had thought of some textile but unsure of what type and how to get it to hold it's shape. should I just coat it in white glue or?

I would use something like butapren glue or something similar - all purpose glue, whet will dry out after 2 days is stays in shape + you can bend it and its like rubber so its coming back in to shape you shaped it during dry process. and texture stays like it was - you can use old bandage for example. nice texture of fabric.

I was quickly reading and i dont know why but this felt like a relaxing cruise advertisement. Sail on da Land Lubba for a nice 3d2n getaway. Can fit your meganob sized family! lols

i love the plasticard wood look. you make it work!

mayhbe a mushroom box
yes pls! a gud proppa fungus farm for da kaptin! try some new ones from Kromlech

updates... Think its done lads. It doesn't have a gun as you see, but I think I'm going to magnetize a boy to stand a couple of places with a big shoota for that? Not sure.


lots o rivets etc.


hopefully start painting it soon!

Posted Image

steering wheel/sub deck and handrails added

Posted Image

loads o rivets and woodgrain-ing (REMINDER, CARVE WOODGRAIN INTO BARE SHEETS BEFORE CUTTING PLANKS....)

Posted Image

fits just about right. might leave the driver off of it, or magnetize a grot as a driver/in crows nest once boys disembark?

Posted Image

rivets and wood grain

Posted Image

steering wheel/inside cladding.. added check plates to interior walls



anyways cheers everyone thanks for the kind words will hopefully get this done quick!


Won't be priming it until tomorrow night or afterwards, so if you have any final C&C it would be much appreciated!!

cheers!!

Great work you did, the ''wood'' looks very realistic allso. You can be really proud on this allready. Personally i whould do 1 big gun at the front of the ship and indeed some big shoota boys magnetized.

Thanks mick! I wanted to add a whole lot of kannons... but felt that if I did so I might hinder being able to place all 12 boys in the trukk. Having same issue finding space for the gunner might have to settle on having a gun on a swivel un manned next to the steering wheel

Thank you as always mick!

these are pretty rough WIP paint shots so been gentle (stopped randomly when fixing overlap of silver/brown and applying rust to inside of bow/front of ram/face

Going to add splashes of color on the armor plating. probably a red yellow and a blue plate, who knows.

Thinking about getting those goblin pirate mini's from freebooter i think? one looks like he would make a mighty fine captain but over $5 a pop... and I really only want 2/5 or 3/5 the set


bought a trukk+boys box and have looted the wheels from my un-built 3rd battlewagon to make a buggy out of a deffkopta... Considering building tracks for front end of wagon or just not building it altogether as I don't really need it unless for APOC.... and try to build truck/buggies/grot tanks out of the parts.... Pirate ship style of course! ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Anyone, i'm alive, an update has been made! :dakkagun: :dakkagun: :dakkagun: :dakkagun:

it has a little more depth in real life, my photos are pretty shoddy. At the same time though, I'm trying to hold myself from making it take that much longer by painting wood grain highlights on each plank... (which im seriously considering doing since it does add so much depth to the wood)


Know any tekneeks to make it go fasta mick? I had planed on just doing long thin wavy lines paralel to the grooves i cut, with a blonde/tan color?
