Five days late to the party... the shame!

 

The 'moon' ship is especially spectacular.  If the ship is the size I think it is, that sculpting must have taken an age.  It was worth it though.

Better late than never!  Ya I've been working on the cresent ship for some time now.  In my defense I'm married with children and self employed so my desk time is usually far and few in between.  I'm glad you're liking the build!

Da Boyz has been working ard and fixed up dis new grill fer dis ere Rok.  As Iz looks at it Iz finking dat dem rivets is a bit too big.  Iz finking dat Iz gonna give it’s a cut-in and try again.  Speaking of trying again I also fink-ing dat Iz needs ta cuts off dat green stuff plate and take a second shot at it.  I likes da idea, an da look itz juz dat piece didn’t turn out quit right.  So a little forward a little backwards. But hey Boss we’z move-in all da same!  Dis ere Rok is taking on a life an is whispering to me mind when Iz bussy doing ova fings (like tending to da Squig Hounds).  At any rate some-fing ta shows ya Gits fer a wee bit of Christmas cheer.

Dat Gob is juz sitting dare right now.  It will fit tighter when I’z puts da glue to it.  I likes da feel of it, reminds me of me dear ol mom at grubbing time!

Ere is a Port view fer ya.  Dare is a uge shoota on da underside dat needs some major work.  I need to add some more styrefome and carve a bit so da angle is propra.  Den I can start working da work-e parts.  I know you Imperial Gits finking “It’s a Ork ship, so why does it matter?”  Well we’z not dem dim witted get stuck in type of boyz ere, see…….  We’z Blood Axes an dat means we knows dat a shoota dat don’t shoot straight aint worf da teef ya pait fer it.

Ok an da ova side.  It is Christmas afta all………………..  Not too much to say ere.  Da engines haven’t been worked ova yet.  Day is jus dare so I’z know where day is supposed ta go.  Da Rok still needs a wee bit more carving and den da fun part begins.  Yep dats out fitting it wif shootas, shaks an whot have ya.  I’z call-in dis ere ship “Da Smash Mouth” an if ya finds yer pretty ships not paying close attention den ya will know why da boyz call it dat!  Thanks fer taking da time to check out dis Gits stuff and any comments, criticism or know whots is always is a big help.

Our boyz sure likes build-in on dese Roks.  I’z got ta say dat day carve up all easy like.  Any of you Gitz got much experience playing wif dis styrefome? (any advice would be a big help)  Gluing fings may pose a challenge, I’z a bit in unknown territory (sorta likes being in da chow line ahead of a mob of hungry Goffs).  At any rate da project keeps slowly moving forwads.

 

20151229_174203-1.jpg

 

So I gots some big shootas in place.  Problem is I got a bit carried aways.  Iz finking dat I need to remove 2 of dem.  Still when dis ere Rok lines up on yer ship it’s gonna be screaming (or betta put) you’re gonna be screaming,  Wez like it dat way, see.  Ok, ok…  I added a gunnery shak.  It’s not it’s final home.  When I adjust da Big Shootas, Iz gonna line it up closer to da Big Shootas me finks.  Notice I didn’t change dem big rivets as of yet or da big hole cover-in plate.  I’ll gets ta it.  I juz sorta got lost in da shootas and exhaust pipes.  Da Big Boss wanted iz engines an shootas moving in a propra direction furst.

 

 

20151229_174344-1.jpg

 

Dare Boss, it’s got engines.  I’z finking dis would be a good Rok fer dim Sunz Boyz dat been racing dim fightas around our flotilla afta work periods.  I bet a good spanna wrench we finds us a right propra Kaptain dare.  I knows dis ere Rok is gonnna be a fast wun.  Ok, I needs to go in an green up around da flight stand hole.  Dis ere will make da piece more stable and tie the rear together.  Finish out da engines wif some green love too.  Getting closer, I can smell da burning burn of dem big engines.  Makes a Git all giddy.

 

20151229_174326-1.jpg

 

Ere is a Port view fer ya.  Can ya sees me lil resin shak down by da chin shoota.  I’z a happy Git cause da help from me “Sac Town Lad” really paid off an nows Iz gotz more shaks dan a Git knows wot ta do wif. (any advice on cleaning da tiny resin pieces?  Day is small and fiddly.  Iz lookin at da exhaust mufflers and finking abouts how I’z gonna add some details.  I was gonna drill dem out, but I don’t want to use dat idea up to much.  Even though any Boy in his right mind goes bonkers ova mufflers all shiny and chrome like,  Ummmmmmm da 3 exhaust pipes came out a little swirly.  I’m debating if I should take another shot at dem.  It does give it some Orky flavor, but Da Big Boss isn’t your average run of da mill Ork, see.  I worry about my worky parts if E sees it an doesn’t give it iz stamp of approval.  It’s not as gravy as wun would fink being a Big Grot Mek in dis growing Waaagh.  It can get hazardious ta wuns well being.     

 

20151229_174402-1.jpg

 

 

Ere is da ova side.  More of da same.  Work ta be done.  Da mufflers on dis side also need some love.  An Iz also finking I may need another pipe (Da Rok may lean ta da Starboard side an dat’s bad fer da shoot-in).  Wot da ya fink?  Oh I likes how dem Big Shootas pop out of da Prow.  Smile umie I’z Gotz some-fing fer ya! (like get-in a big wet lick from yer Squig Hound afta feeding it a Slacka Snot!)

 

20151229_174605-2.jpg

 

Ahhhhhhh like Da 3 Big Bosses.  Da is gonna dominate their piece of da big empty.  Fink yer beekies gonna be put-in da stomp on us.  Fink again Man-lings.  My advise fer 2016 is ta pack yer bags an find another rock ta call ome.  Or just stay put and join us fer chow and lotz o fun fings wez got planned!  Ok den dat’s me fer now.  Thanks fer checking out and sharing in me project.

Well, been a bit since I'z been put-in ya in da loop.  Ya, gotz some of dat Imperial bitz I'z see....... Good.  So me'z guess-in dat we'z can be all a yaking aboutz itz nows! Work as been a heap slower dan normal.  Lotz go-in on so me time ta plot, plan and get ta figuring as been creeping along at a squig slugs pace.  Furst up is "Squigbeards Teef Getta" Dis ere Freebooter is a shifty Git ta say da least.  I gotta give Big Mek Blind dare in Sac Town many a big thanks cause wif out iz elp dis ere project would never ave been wot it is!  Ok, ok.......... So ere it iz already.

Ahhhhhh dare it is now!  As ya Gitz can see me bitz turned out pretty propra!  Well me n Da Boss like dem, so it works fer me! Aving Access to all of dese bitz as sure made building not only easier and less time consuming but fun wif lotz of options (or frustrating cause Iz gotz too many options).  I went back an built us up some Torp Decks and I'z got-ta say I'z pretty smiley abouts dem.  Ol' Squigbeard em self iz even showing off iz big bitters now!  So I'd say Dis job is get-ten close ta being a good-un.  I'z hope ya agree, but if ya sees some-fing dat don't sitz right in yer belly please letz me knows.

 

 

20160821_100101.jpg

 

 

Dis ere is da ova side.  I'z gotz more bitz on it now, but don't ave a current pic fer ya.  Guess ya should a brought dem Plasma fings I was ask-in fer.  At any rate I fink dis ere build iz taking shape.  Oh an fer da record I don't ave da ram-in plate on dis ship fer da picture.  It'z over at da ova shak get-in some more ammering!

 

 

20160925_161410.jpg

 

 

Iz real found of dis ere Rok.  Dis ere shot is early, but da feel is feel-in good.  I went from Big Shootas ta a Torp Bay on Da Prow.  Why?  Guess-in cause I love me Torp bays an dis wun ere looks like a big eye!

 

 

20160928_133328.jpg

 

 

Ere is some progression.  I'z build-in up a lil Scrap Town and framing in sum Big Shootas.

 

 

20160928_133229.jpg

 

 

An a Port shot fer ya,  I like wot's hap-in-in, but I'z gots more work ta do.  Oh an fer da record, Da Green Stuff binds real nice like to da Styrofoam.  It's been nice to work wif.  Well in a ammo can dats about me fer dis trip.  Comments, criticism and wot not is always a big help.   If ya want's more ya should be finking abouts bringing some propa scrap wif ya next time, see!

Been dancing wif dis ere Rok.  Wot started off real good like (even gotz itz name real fast "Da Oggley Eye" (Athough now itz turning into some-fing else an will getz a new name)) ended up give-in me a rough crump-in kind a likes stealing meaty bites out of da camp soup when ya finking no gits a watch-in an den ya's gets coughed up by yer mate, see!  At any rate I was a struggling wif dis ere build.  Juz couldn't get Da Prow right (seems like dats da story of me life).  But afta scraping, sum fit throwing and lotz a name calling it took shape.  Now I'z a happy git again!  Dats juz da way of fings when yer Mek-ing about.............

 

20161107_091153.jpg

 

 

Itz only gotz itz exhaust pipes fitted on wun side fer now.  I gotz a matching set fer da ova side, day just not in place fer dis ere picture.  Dis is more about itz layout an how all dem grubbins iz gonna fit in da end.  So itz sloppy rights now, but Iz gonna be fixing it up more propra likes.Gotta fill out da Rok on its sides sum more as it feel a little weedy right now.  I wanna good mix between rock and build.  Dat way when I'z getz ta throwing paint on it there is nice contrast.  Ahhhhhh Shootas, shootas, shootas.  Me finking da Big Boss gonna be smiling.  Ya see da Big Boss like iz Shootas.  I gotz a lot of green stuff work ta be doing, but again I like da feeling ere.  Ok den moving on.

 

20161107_091315.jpg

 

 

Iz gotz ta clean it up.  Make it more rocky an add some plates and well get it busy.  Dem plastic card squares gonna be all plate like and da angle is a bit off over all, but stuff iz just stuck dare fere now.  I stole da helm and hab stacks from another ship, but I finking it feel more betta on dis ere ship.  I'z not too sure how much I'z gonna build up around it yet.  Again I want a lot of rocks so it feel well likes a Rok still.  Gonna be tricky cause I juz ave a hard time not adding grubbins.

 

20161107_091248.jpg

 

 

Ere is a Starboard shot fer ya.  Iz still gotz a bunch of work as I work my way back, gotz ta fill da Rok out more and add some grubbins. Shootas, big plates an wot ave ya.  Sorry dese ere pictures are not so good, but I wanted ta give ya some-fing today ta eyeball az I'z real thankful fer ya taking da time ta share in me madness!  Any feed back is a heap helpful and hopefully yer working on yer Waagh too as we gonna be getting togethea fer Da Big Party!
