    Raising the Waaaghflag (TO40KP WIP)



    Yeah,
    I said Iīll do it. Here is my contribution to the Tale of 40K Painters 08/09. -edit- And 09/10...

    Orks, 1500 points. A mixed theme, part heavy metal folks, part mad max style.
    Weīll see a good bunch of vehicles and boys. This thread is for all those who are interested in the conversion progress. There will be much cutting and greening. List wise it will be much like an evil suns army. Trucked troops, buggies, bikes and the odd elites choice for fun reasons. The highlight will be a battlewagon of a rare kind. But step by step. Today I managed to buy the first box of boys. I did the first greenings.
    Heavy metal is all about hair, so my buggers will get mullets and wigs, it will be a joy.
    First try..



    And itīs about booze..





    The gaps under his arms will be filled up. Actually heīll get a t-shirt. Like many of them will. With band logos.
    I got a lots of plans.

    All C&C is more than welcome.

    Cheers
    Bart

    A list will apear this weekend, as well as more boys

    Thanks guys.

    I also expect a lot of this. It is a cool training for greenstuffing.
    Made some progress. T-shirt and hair.









    The real challenge of today is the nob. Heīll get a leather jacket and the armour will be removed for a t-shirt. Also sculpted skull rings on fingers of the second lad. he got a chin beard aswell.
    God, this is going to be so punk...

    Cheers

    Heya,
    painted boy. Thatīs what the people want to see, ainīt it?

    Kind of a testpiece for the skin and metals. Clothing blue jeans and old worn out wifebeater is classic. Somehow shows my festival outfit. I like the way he turned out. Itīs probably pretty much the standard Iīll go for. I definately cannot do the highclass stuff I do for my marines, otherwise I can quit the tale immediately. Hope you like the fella.









    Do you see the rings on his right hand? How do you like this?

    I guess I will try to do the jacket now. Frightens me a bit, but I swore to myself to do it.

    C&C very welcome!

    Cheers
    Bart

    This is just completely brilliant!
    The hair from under the helmet on the one with the bionic eye is great.
    The painted one is awesome ... rings, wife beater, goatee! Classic stuff!

    Re: Raising the Waaaghflag (TO40KP WIP)

    Ok, one more for the road...

    Nob greening, step one. So far itīs a vest. Itīll be a jacket tomorrow. Arms will be hardest I fear, but so far it seems to turn out well. Iīm happy the zips work out.

    A little poll for you. This guy got a complete shirt without armour. So what bandlogo do you want to see? Choose from: ACDC, Pantera, Maiden or Slayer. Wonīt do more complicated ones because of the braces.








    Need the poll result fast. The nob must be finished till Sunday.

    Thanks everybody for looking in.

    Cheers
    Bart

    Really nice work overall. The GS is great so far, I agree, the zipper came out great. I love the paint scheme and over feel the army will have.

    Ok 1) ACDC and 2) a couple of orks need liberty spikes and nose rings. So far this stuff is awesome.

    Very cool green stuffing on the jacket so far.
    About the band names, if it were entirely up to me, I'd use made up orky band names and logos. White writing on black T-shirts will be obvious band shirts, even though people don't know the band names.
    Good luck with the rest of the jacket ... the ends of the sleeves are sort of already on the model

    Oh, and I just noticed the back pockets on the painted dude's jeans ... genius!

    Ha!
    Do we have a leather jacket or what?!









    Thanks for your replies!

    Solun, I must insist on real band names, as it is part of the fluff. It will be published the next days.

    MFV, I donīt know wether Slayer will be visible on his shirt. The jacket took up too much space, although Slayer was one of my faves. (Musically there is no discussion)
    I think Iīll end up with ACDC.

    Klutzy, nose rings are evil fingerbreakers for me as sculptor. Thank you for trusting in my skills, but that might go too far. I will see what I can do though.

    Redstarone, thanks, all the zippers came out nice after all.

    For those interested, this is a copy of my jacket! Including the buttons and the pattern.
    The boozer is on the painting table now.

    Cheers
    Bart

    Re: Raising the Waaaghflag (TO40KP WIP)

    Picture update!
    Managed to almost complete four guys. Thanks for taking part in the poll, Maiden and ACDC made it. Letīs see who can name the third band!
    Thereīs still some details to do, but I want to show them anyway.










    I had to do the infamous striped pants. The boss sports the typical hillbilly jeans with orange seams. There is much room for more stuff!
    I guess some Chucks are mandatory, as well as tons of band shirts of all my favourites. Beer cases.. you know what to expect.
    Klutzy, does this live up to your expectations?

    How do you folks like the leather jacket? I think it looks like one. The bottle turned out better than expected. Itīs a bit long, I know, take it as a wine bottle...


    Cheers
