    Da Waagh Mediko (Update 12/17 : Killa Kans)

    Hi!
    I bought first and second handed ork's parts from years, and I was in the in the idea to built a waagh for long, but I never beginning with the conversion work until my children give a stompa to me as birthday gift...
    If somebody can forget such a model in the box, I cannot!
    It was time to work on those green skin...
    The idea is to built a blood axe army, using many vehicles and a rather advanced (if ork) technology. My inspiration comes from the very beginning of the XXth century and the WW1. Not real steampunk but close.
    The boyz will not be really converted I think, but all the weapons and vehicles will.

    What could we found there?

    Armor boyz : page 6
    Boyz : page 1,3
    Buggies : page 1,2,3,4
    Chassa bomba : 12,13,14
    Dok : page 7,8
    Grots : page 5,6
    Killa cans : page 9, 10
    Kommandos : page 3,5,6
    Koptas : page 1
    Lobbas : page 1,6
    Nobz : page 3
    Traks : page 1,2,3,4,14
    Truks : page 7,8,9,15
    War boss : page 5
    Warbikes (boyzs) : 10,12
    Warbikes (nobz) : page 11,12
    Zap : 15

    I choose to begin with something easy : the heavy weapons and first the lobbas :

    The carriage :






    The mortar. My first purpose was to use tracks, but one change was to replace it with small wheels. Many heavy mortar use such a wheel for local moving on the firing base.







    Al comments are welcome!

    That's a really good scratch build. I like the squat-ness to it! (is that a word?!?)

    Re: Da Waagh Mediko

    Thank You both, I'm happy you like those guns because I should built too many of them.

    The 3 lobbas are now finished they are identical in overall shape but have different detail :





    Some crew will be added but need conversion :

    Thank you very much!
    I already finish the lobbas, the next will be the kannons and I plan to built 3 karbonizators and 3 buggies using a mix of traks and buggies base. There are kopters too, I finished a proto but need at las 3 more.

    Re: Da Waagh Mediko

    As said in the previous post, I convert a Kopta. Just prototypal, I should built 3 or 4 more to have a full unit.

    I didn't like the original model very much, even if the idea and the fig are both good, but I wanted to have something bigger and more impressive on the battlefield. I try to convert the original parts to add a bigger tail and change the rotor to make it bigger to.







    Another idea was to add different modular weapons to use most of the options :





    I hope you like it!

    The Kopta looks great and i am in love with the lobbas!
    The first model i scratchbuilt was an ork lobba, i dont suppose you could humour me and put a large rawlplug as a barrel?

    I really like the Kopta! And the Space Marine helmets are a true orky touch! Love it.

    Re: Da Waagh Mediko

    Thank you very much boyzs!


    Along with the vehicles, I should built as many boyzs as I can, but as my boyz come from the old box (the big one) there is no support weapon and I should convert some.

    The Rockit launcha is made using an imperial missile and some bitz. Arms are not glued and I will add a small wire between the tank and the rocket :



    The first units :





    Hope you like it!

    Thank you!

    If not very spectacular, I'm searching ideas to increase the Blood Axe spirit of my boyz.
    As I don't want to spend too much time in converting the guys, I Try to concentrate on details and come to the idea to add field caps or helmets on their heads. Officer caps will be spare to the nobz.

    Both parts would be easy and speed to mould is needed!

    2 prototyps are possible :


    British helmet on kramboyz :





    German field cap on big shoota boyz :





    Any comment or suggestion are welcome!

    I personally think the soft hats look more "Orky" but both look pretty cool! Use the German hats for "officers" or Kommandos and the steel helmets on the Lootas or 'Ardboys?
