Hi all, Ramsey Here, Just a quick introduction to my project log and my ork army,
I flippin' love the borderlands series, and i wanted to base my ork army off of the game and its characters/ setting, note that for the most part, i won't be directly creating stuff from borderlands (sometimes i might) but it's more converting my orks to look like they come from the series.

rambling aside, let's get this madness going!

Excellent. I'm watching Borderlands 2 vids on YouTube & really like the style. Kaptain Flynt is by far my favourite character from this game. Keep up the good work + vision.

Quick update on my sledge warboss!

I did NOT give him a sledgehammer, im going for a power klaw, 'eavy armour and a skorcha/shoota.

heres some pics of the progress on him :D

the part for the power klaw is a forearm from an ancient gundam model I had when I was a kid, and only a few spare parts remain, the rest of it is in plasticard. I took off the cylinder bit from the top pic, the idea was to have a wire feeding into his suit, kinda like the black reach warboss, but i didn't like it, so i got rid of it.

Update on the warboss!

here's how he looks with his power klaw in place.

It's almost as big as he is, but if it were any smaller, it wouldn't be very orky now would it?

and here's the sledge helmet in place.

Hey everyone, another update on the warboss, i'll be posting pics of the painting soon as well.

didn't do much for the shoota/scorcha, but i just extended the barrel a little, using the shaft of a q-tip, those things come in handy, just sayin.

and here's the base, im not gonna get too experimental with bases for now, as im more about the models themselves, so im going for metal panels/floors contrasting with the sand.

If you paint them cell-shaded, I'll be very impressed. ;)

Neat idea for a xenos theme. Keep at it!

(excuse the flash on this one)

and heres an example of the highlights/ scratch damage on the armour

and the bandit brand style shark teeth on the shoota, this was surprisingly challenging to get it to look right

Very Kool man I like it a lot.... I need to play borderlands again!

Your conversions and paintjob are looking great, but the photos leave a lot to be desired.

It's worth trying a simple sheet of white paper, curved against the wall and held in place with tape, and have a lamp close by shining onto it. Makes a simple photo box and improves pictures tremendously.

giving him a power claw as well because...

power claws are cool. thats why.

hey everyone, sorry i've been inactive for a while, been looking for a job so things are a little crazy.

i havea little update on my Nobz,

Next one up is based on bonehead.
174732

taking the idea of a guy with a skull helmet and taking it up to 11.

http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m498/ramsimation/Orks/IMAG0418.jpg (http://s1128.photobucket.com/user/ramsimation/media/Orks/IMAG0418.jpg.html)

and here he is

back again people! i got some more of my nobz done, including an attack/bomb squig on a seperate base (it could count as either)

heres another shot of bonehead or BONE 'ED
http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m498/ramsimation/Orks/IMAG0424.jpg (http://s1128.photobucket.com/user/ramsimation/media/Orks/IMAG0424.jpg.html)

this guy was fun to make, cutting and repositioning the leg was a challenge. i also had to reposition the powerclaw arm. the head is based on one of krieg's alternate heads.

http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m498/ramsimation/Orks/IMAG0423.jpg (http://s1128.photobucket.com/user/ramsimation/media/Orks/IMAG0423.jpg.html)


This guy is also based on one of krieg's alternate heads. yes, the axe is going to be on fire, and i'll be painting some OSL on that.

http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m498/ramsimation/Orks/IMAG0422.jpg (http://s1128.photobucket.com/user/ramsimation/media/Orks/IMAG0422.jpg.html)


and finally, the fire squig it could count as either an attack squig or a bomb squig, once again, im gonna practice osl on this.
