    Re: Guildy's Orkz

    Hahah thanks! I know it looked a lot like a Clown Car with the bright colours at first!

    My main theme is orange and purple overall. But yeah I LOVE weathering it to death so it really has to start quite bright to look "ok" to me, after. Still, whole lot of fun to do glad you enjoyed it!

    Trying to decide what to work on next. I really need to get more of my boyz done they're sadly grey atm.

    Deffkopta Warbike Conversion



    Started with:







    Basically, I followed Sperian's guide on MWG for how to convert a deffkopta to a warbike. I added a couple of forks on the front wheel, and a kromlech resin wheel on the back. Since I'm doing a pirate/ocean theme and I've already done a few sand/water bases for my completed boyz, I wanted to try to make this bike look like he was riding out of the surf.

    I looked for a few techniques but the final one that seemed to get the look I mostly wanted was to use cotton balls and gloss mod podge. Next time I'm going to try to do some greenblue washes and layer up the cotton balls, so I have more of a blue look and not total white/clear. I tried to do the washes after but it really didn't work on my test piece so I left it as is.

    I also used the fishing line and watereffects (or glue) trick, but I subbed nylon thread as I happen to have some that's very thin. I tried to build up the water effects (Vallejo still water) slowly to make it look like water droplets flying off.

    Re: Guildy's Orkz

    Now that is a neat conversion, whish I had seen it before I painted my Deffkoptas, as now I have 4 Fast Attack.

    Looks like someone gave this thread a 2/5 before you even had a chance to show your stuff. I have given a 5/5 to see if that can bring the rating up somewhat, because if you keep showing conversions and painted Grots like on the last page you will be getting higher ratings.

    Cheers,

    Trukk 1

    Thanks Captain!

    I took the conversion idea from Sperian on MWG, he did a couple that look really really cool.

    Just finished off my son's Terrorgheist for his VC army, so now I can get back to my Orks!

    I'm currently trying to get more boyz painted, but they're just undercoated atm sadly. And I also started trying to get my three trukks done. They're ebay salvage jobs so some bits are missing here and there, and I had to really scrub them a lot ot get the yucky old paint off. My next trukk is going to be a new one, I swear hah. I am very tempted to get one and another goliath model to kitbash together as well, for a second looted wagon.

    Anyway, so here's the first trukk - I made it a grill type thing, since that was a bit missing. Also may make it a reinforced ram, as that's also missing, not sure yet. Just need to get the crew painted up and it's finished really (paint wise, I've not weathered it yet).

    Re: Trukk 1



    Getting there!

    I am hopefully I'll finish these three this weekend (and take better non-phone pics) - but by the week at least.

    Going from left to right:

    Trukk 3 - is about to have colour applied, over chipping fluid, the pre-rusting stage is already complete
    Trukk 2 - is done, except its crew - that is still WIP
    Trukk 1 - all painting is done, but I didn't use chipping fluid on this one, as I want to see how the weathering differs using just paint and weathering powders (I don't think it really matters in the long run, I'm just curious)

    And in other news, I managed NOT to buy two more trukk models, tho it was a close thing haha I do want to wait til 8th drops to see how useful the Trukk remains (hopefully very!) but I did take the opportunity to buy the ork mek model that is *not* the one from the lootas/burnas kits.

    I'm also converting some boyz with bits from lootas/burnas kits (mainly the rockets) to make some tankbustas, a model I've been itching to make and try on the battlefield for a while!

    Re: Guildy's Orkz

    Great Trukks there Guildenstern. They look very Orky with the mix of metallic colours and rust.

    I did some simple conversions as well to bulk out my Tankbustas, but I used GorkaMorka models to make them look like apprentices learning from the veterans (photos in my Ork PLOG) for a simple way to convert a shoota into a rokkit.

    Cheers,

    Re: Guildy's Orkz

    Sweet Captain Brown - will check out your plog again and plunder it for ideas lol

    Finished the trukks, so I'll be trying to get to the Tankbustas here shortly!

    I'm hoping the Trukk will still be awesome in 8th so I have an excuse to buy more, but we shall see - I'm really mainly holding off because I have soooo many other units to finish first anyway.


    (Note I do have a few more bits I have to stick back on that broke off >< sigh. So it goes, otherwise all their weathering is done)

    Only paint what you want to paint...as the playability of models may change from edition to edition, but your figure cabinet is for the rest of your gaming career. (Exception being Ogryns which just seem to suffer)

    Your weathering has really toned down the bright colours and made the vehicles truly Orky!

    Re: Guildy's Orkz

    The huge Ork glyph is a great touch. Haven't seen Deffkoptas being converted to Warbikes before. Very cool, and thanks for elaborating on this.

    Make sure you get the dirt on wheels evenly, as they spin around and whatnot.

    Re: Guildy's Orkz

    Belated thanks guys appreciate the tyre tip especially I hadn't actually noticed it wasn't on as evenly as it should have been.

    Just got back from vacation - first one in a really long time tbh. Didn't get a lot of hobby in, though, sadly lol And of course 8th dropped while I'm off galivanting about, so didn't even get to play much.

    Anyway, I'm back now and finally restarting on my orks - I got some Tankbustas converted up (used the tutorial on StrikingScorpion82's youtube channel to take burna bodies and just add a bunch of missles etc). Also I finished off my Ork Mek model that'd I'd been trying to get to for a while!






    Next up I'm planning on getting some more boyz painted up, and though that's not exciting a ton, after I'm going to be finally doing a Gorkanaut =D which I'm *very* excited about!

    Guildenstern,

    Interesting bases you have there. Good stuff. Looking forward to you Gorkanaut.

    Re: Guildy's Orkz

    yay =D I got my boyz done (well technically all but about 15 of 'em) so I treated myself to actually building the Gorkanaut! So excited to get him together, such a fun model. For anyone dithering about maybe getting one - yes, it's worth it. Ok, I dunno about IG (though I hear tell with 8th that's changed) but definitely from a modeling and fun aspect, it's awesome. So much fun to put together!

    Anyway, here are some of my new boyz done, and the WIP on the Gorkanaut (waaaaaaagh!)

    Re: Guildy's Orkz

    Smallish update on my Bubba (Gorkanaut)

    he's gotten primed, and I started the rusting/weathering underlayer.



    I then did a layer of chipping fluid over all of the surface, which is drying now, before I start on his basecoat.

    In keeping with my army theme, he's mostly going to be Orange and Purple, probably a bit more emphasis on the Purple, as that's kind of my more "elite" colour. But there'll be plenty of other colours as well, as I typically use some yellow, red and a bit of black/white checkering.

    I have quite a few transfers of course, built up from many boxes of orks, but I'm not 100% sure how to weather them. I'll have to investigate that aspect again as well, it never works quite like I'd like on the few occasions I've tried it out. Also planning on eventually quite a lot of rusty and oil effects. There's a particularly interesting oilwash/rust effect that mimics runoff from rusting rivets, I'd quite like to try out.

    But first on to basecoating!

    Nice Boyz,

    But what happened to the Nobz' face? Does he have a nose chain?

    Yeah, I think so - at least that's how I interpreted it - it's a Kromlech head I subbed in for the more piratey look.

    https://bitsofwar.com/home/163-cyber-pirates-heads.html

    He's the one on the lower left ^^ - I found it quite hard to see his eyes tbh, but I really like his hat.

    Gorkanaut update

    Working some more on my Gorkanaut!

    I had to redo his claw gap stuffing >< it's better now I think but not as nice as I'd hoped. It may need yet another sanding and repaint I think to get looking right.





    Here he is in most of his basecoat, some of it's still not done. And I have found a couple more mold lines I need to remove, as you do.



    It's fairly thin atm because it's going over the chipping medium, which I also brushed on. And a second coat will be required, also quite thin, as I'm trying to keep brushstrokes off the bigger panels.

    While I was working on his upper part, behind his head, I decided I am going to (try) LEDs in the back, I'm still sorting out what kind etc. The idea is to backlight his head a bit, and make the space behind lit up. I may try to do his transport area too. I'll have to see. Really not familiar with LEDs at all so I'm gonna need to do some research.

    Re: Gorkanaut update

    Finishing this guy for dakka monthly paint before I leave. Had to put Bubba on back burner for a bit. Hopefully will get LED kit in while I'm gone and can start seriously working on him when I get back. Meanwhile my kromlech Juggernaut:




    I didn't like how well the highlighting ended up blending in so I'm going back over him, doing pin washes and edge highlighting. I don't know if I'll have time to do weathering before I leave =/
