So, I'm finally starting an Ork army, as you can probably tell from the title I'm going with Kult of Speed! I figured this forum was the right place to put some photos
 
My plan is to have almost no infantry, just bikes and buggies and planes etc. and as with other threads I've done on other forums I'll be posting WIP pictures along with bits of fluff to go along. 
 
My main inspirations are going to be old school hotrod artwork, things like Ed Roth (Ratfink) and Mad Max because 
1) I've always been a huge fan of the series since I first saw them when I was like 12 and 
2) as a huge film nerd from Australia it just seems right  :D
I'll also be throwing the odd pop culture reference into my conversions, I feel you can get away with that with Orks more than any other race
 
The First 2 units I'm working on are my Warboss on Bike 'Guzrusha Sparktoof' and his retintue of Nob Bikers. My plan is to have 6 Nobs, each one modelled to look like one of the 6 Ork Clans, the idea being that the Warboss lets them keep they're original colours when they joined the Kult of Speed, he cares not for clans, only pure, unadulterated speed!!!!
 
So, on with the pictures
 
First up is the Boss Nob (Evil Suns)
1P8kHWi.jpg
 
Like all of my models, this army will have a lot of character in each model. I made this guy (yet to be named) look super casual even though he's going at high speed, He's such an experienced Evil Sun that only the toppest of top speeds gets him excited. He's also got a jerry can and a bunch of extra exhausts. Still a little bit of work to do on him, but not much!!  :)
 
Next, My Bad Moons Nob
8w2m24g.jpg
 
I've tried to make him looks as much like a Flash Git as possible, that's why he has 2 bosspoles and the plan is he will have the fanciest, shiniest bike! His gun is actually from Grukk face-rippa, just slightly converted. I also gave him extra long teef, because...Bad Moons
 
And finally the start of Warboss Sparktoof's bike
W0276z0.jpg
 
I extended the front forks and and the body, I used a power klaw for the body extension. This bike is much bigger than the others, which makes sense for the bike of a huge warboss!! I've done some more work to this since I took the photos, will probably upload new ones soon  :)
 
So, there we go, I'm looking forward to this, I hope you are too!!
 
Any suggestions, question or comments???

I find it's pretty difficult to make a really striking warbike conversion. The models are so busy "as-is" that the add-ons tend to get lost. Still the boss bike looks good and big which is the main thing! And i like the long teef on the bad Moon, clever idea.

So, I finished painting the evil suns nobs bike

xMGLx3I.jpg

Although looking at the photos now, i do wanna add some black to the end of the exhausts....whoops, I always forget something

I'll be attaching the gun once the nob is glued on. Painting ork stuff is fun!!

 

I'm still not sure about the base trim colour, I think it suits but it look a bit odd, but that might just be because I'm used to seeing dark base trims...thoughts?

 

I've also done some more work on Sparktoof's bike

Lm0vAoJ.jpg

I've almost finished it!! :) I only need to add the handlebars, the attack squig, the guns and the Warboss himself!

I added some custom bosspoles, It doesn't show so well in the picture, but the middle one is my attempt at Orkish for "Sparktoof"

Thanks! Yeah, I know what you mean, I'm not really adding too much to the bikes, trying to add most of the character into the actual Orks. such as giving the Bad Moon longer teef, and I'll be making the Blood axe look Kommando-y and the Death SKull will be on a looted bike, things like this

Some really sweet precision paint and blending skills on show - if you're looking for nitpicks the only one I'm spotting are the kit joins :biggrin

Job's a good un, boss. Wouldn't worry too much about the join, a big nob biker will cover that right up.

I've been using that colour for the base trims on me snakebites just lately, so you don't need to convince me on that score.

Thanks, yeah That's what I was hoping with the joins.

I've done another base and i think it's growing on me. The bits for my Snakebite Nob biker should be here soon :)

Bike is looking awesome!

 

IF you pick up some black weathering powder, you can just brush it on at any point (don't need to pull the paint back out) after you finish the model.  Goes on like makeup, easy to just play with to get the amount you want (for exhaust/soot).

I've finished the First Biker Nob

311OCPP.jpg

 

I'm really happy with how he came out, and I think it works well as a test model!

 

I've also done some work on the Warboss

lLUucIH.jpg

 

It doesn't really come across in this picture, but one of his teef is a spark plug, the us the name 'Sparktoof'. He's armed with what can only be described as a 'Kombi-Klaw'. still got quite a bit to do to him.

 

I've also had to make a larger base out of other bases

Al6x6Jr.jpg

probs would have been easier to just stick 2 bike bases together, but I just used what I had

 

There's also the start of his attack squig

IGxvfny.jpg

I figured if he's gonna be riding on a bike at high speed he needs goggles, still need to add straps.

Any suggestions for a name for this guy?

Quick Update

 

I finished painting The Bad Moonz Nob's Bike

cP2BBHx.jpg

 

His bike is much more shiny and cleaner than the last one, and I gave the grot a brighter skin tone

 

I also finished up the attack squig! Isn't he cute!?!

YCjotTK.jpg

 

I forgot to put these up the other day, but I also started some Orky objective markers

V0KQIke.jpg

I've got an effigy of Gork (or possibly Mork) and a scrap pile for looting!!

Loooove the squig!!! I had one I did in a warbosses sidecar on his bike for a commission years ago. Ended up making him out of GS and GS'inf the goggles, would of saved a lot of time and had a better look imho if I used your method of making goggles here. Consider it looted :P

More progress on Boss Sparktoof

Y93phZq.jpg

 

Other than a few small things I need to fix with GS he's done!!! :)

He also has a map rolled up and attached to his belt, I'll go into more detail about that when I write a small bit of background for him!

 

As a size comparison here he is next to my other biker

CNRR5Wm.jpg

He's quite a bit bigger and bare in mind that the other biker is a Nob too!!

 

I've also finished painting his loyal attack squig (name still required) I love how cute he turned out :)

UxZIinE.jpg

 

and the objectives, still need to make 4 more!

C&C Welcome!!!!

Thanks heaps. I did think about putting him in a sidecar, but I decided having a big tyre guard for him to sit on would be better/easier. I tend to use plasticard where I can over GS, mostly because I'm not the best at GS, I can do organic stuff 'ok' but something like this, with small detail and hard edges....no chance

Quick Update

 

I finished the Bad Moonz Nob biker

GAhaWa2.jpg

 

His bike is a lot shinier than the other one, being a rich Bad Moon, I also gave him one blind eye because that head has a big scar across the eye.

 

Here's my progress on Guzrusha Sparktoof

j2qtASA.jpg

 

I've made his skin slightly darker than the nobz

 

I also made a start on a Big Mek, my plan is to eventually put him in a Mobile Mek Shop (Battlewagon) :)

Warboss Guzrusha Sparktoof

 

The average Ork Warboss would start a Waaagh for power, or wealth, or to stop boredom. Warboss Guzrusha Sparktoof however, has a fairly unique goal. He is searching for 'Da Big One', An enormous engine from Ork folklore rumoured to be faster and more powerful than any other in the galaxy. Whilst most Orks see 'Da Big One' as a myth, Sparktoofs Speed Freak brain won't let him believe it isn't out there somewhere.

 

Riding his gigantic Warbike with his faithful attack squig 'Zog'ead', Warboss Sparktoof leads his band of like-minded Orks from planet to planet in search of his prize. After scouring a planet, He crosses the planet off on his map which he keeps attached to his belt at all times, and they set off for the next world.

 

When he was still just a young Nob known only as Guzrusha, he was hit in the face with a plasma blast while fighting some Armageddon Steel Legion. Though the Dok did his best to fix Guzrusha's injuries, he couldn't fix the fact that Guzrusha had lost the ability to grow his large toof on one side of his mouth. Feeling that his face was missing something, Guzrusha grabbed a broken spark plug from a Mek and jammed it into his empty gum. From then on he became known as Sparktoof.

 

“Ha, fast?!? Ya call dat fast?!? You ain't never seen propa fast 'til now ya stinkin li'l runt!!!”

-Warboss Sparktoof whilst chasing down a Druhkari Reaver

____________

 

 

I'm really happy with Sparktoof, I think he's a fitting leader for a Kult of Speed army!! I'm really enjoying painting Orks :)

I did my best to get the details form his backstory onto the model. I like trying to tell a bit of a story with my conversions. Here are some better comparison shots of just how big he is!

I've also made a start on a Warbuggy

As always, C&C more than welcome!!! :)

Thanks, I did my best to make it obviously Bad Moonz, even without it being yellow ")

I think you've done a great job! Lots of characterful conversion, and the painting is on point.

Some progress on the Buggies!

 

7JhnWlh.jpg

 

I'm really happy with how the shape came out  :) Pretty much finished, just a few small details to add, drill out the guns and exhausts and seal up the seams on the tires

here is it in it's easy-to-paint mode

 

4iqgIbF.jpg

 

I've also started on another one

 

Bo0gg2i.jpg

 

Unfortunately I'm still waiting on bits I ordered weeks ago and I can't really progress until they arrive, just goes to show why heavy converting and living in Australia isn't the best mix :(

Thanks so much, I'm really happy the characters come across :)

In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness which starts to set in at about 2:55, when you know that you've had all the baths you can usefully have that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the papers you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o'clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.
