That's an absolute ton of work for one summer. Nice work, those Orks look fantastically weather-beaten. :)

Update.

Just looking around for the next little project. Not really sure what I should do. Partially want to get back to the bases. (Just about done with my AoD 1st Legion tank.) 
I've found some lootas, which I probably could have vowed. haha. 8 of them. I should see what the state of my lootas actually are. I know I have parts for a few more of them in a bitz bag...Maybe? 
Getting a little frustrated with das intervebs. Wel, rumors ect. Not interested in putting my whole collection on 32mm bases. But that is starting to be the vibe I am picking up on. Notthat I am planning to but I had thought burna boys and Lootas mught be better on bigger bases. so that much I may do. after I order about 50 or 60 bases in that size. I need to take a head count or just order in bull. 

On that subject. it occurs to me as funny that people are also using movement trays. So if my models are on Movement trays why would I then also rebase to larger bases. I really see the bases as more aesthetic/cosmetic than anything else in 8th edition. 
Just some thoughts this morning.

And speaking of looting...

I've started rounding up bitz and some other models to start the slow process of building another War Koppta as well as that Kill Tank I was thinking about. 
I've seen what looks like an easy build in pictures on line and plan to start with that, building out the hull shape. I will then either build wheels for it or attach some Land raider tracks to it. 
I've started clipping parts off of deff koptas to use to built the war kopta. It will look similar too the other two in shape size and parts but it will be armed with two rattler Kannons for sure. 
Not in a rush. I need to take all of this one step at a time and try to produce a couple quality models. 

 

This should hold me over until I order all the needed bases for my other basing project. 32's for lootas and something bigger for the War bikers, to kick them up a notch...BAM! 
I'm trying to watch my spending in preparation of the codex and a few extras that may also be coming along with the codex, dice, cards, what ever. 
That is likely the last purchases for this year and the holidays will quickly be rolling in, you know how it gets! 

 

More stuff to come!

Update. 

I've found 32 mm bases in a lot of 100 for about 12.00 usd. 
From China. They have 75 mm ovules as well which I am not sure of the full measurements but seem comparable to Gw's 75X 46 mm bases. Which is what I am thinking bout putting my war bikers on. I've found them in a lot of 50 for just under 30.00 usd.  

I'm only ordering the 32's right now unless I can find a single of the others to order to checkum' out. 

 

I'm pausing my plans for a kill tank again. But do want to build the war kopta. It should be a much easier build to sort out.

My Usual Scrumgrod is selling all of his 40K armies to pay down his credit cards and dig himself out of debt.

Apparently he's run off most of his other opponents with his Imperial soup du jour. He's been crying about a lack of competent opponents of "our caliber" , or what ever. 

I've told him in the past, "after 20 years of 40K he should be schooling other players with a garbage list, not the new hotness."  But what do I know lol. 
I may have sold him on AoS, so there's that. 

 

No immediate plans.

30K games scheduled for the 18th. And I'll have more 30K models to build and pain there after. This war Kopta will be a slow project, or not. well see. 

will update again when there's an actual update.

A little painting.

Slowly working out a Dakka Jet I never finished and a Blitza Bomba. I have the grot gunner primered and that's the majority of what I hope to accomplish.  I'm looking forward to finishing up these aircraft.. I own 14 flyers and am sorting out how many to keep. I figured 7 for sure but that may be 8 in total. I was a juge fan of the Blitza bomba last edition. 
I have only used a Dakka Jet once, I think, this edition. 
I may just keep two of a kind , and maybe a third Blitza Bomba, just in case we ever play 7th edition again. That gets into some strange reorganization. And Madness! 
Best to just paint what I feel like painting and see where it goes. 

 

 

If you owned a Gargantuan Squigoth, what weapons would you put on it. I also have to rebuild mine and never had the full set of weapons for it. I traded a wfb army to a friend for one back in 05's-ish. I started repainting it 4 years ago or more and it was never finished. Just  popped into my head. 
Big zzappas seem fun.

Cracking work on that base, looking forward to seeing some more of your First Legion in the near future too.

 Just a little left to do and have to add the glass. 

I really like how the blue is coming out. I may go back and add a bit more rust to the color transition / paint peeling off. from blue to red. 

Is it blue? or is it a clever disguise... Only the grots know for sure.

Much excitement! 

Also. 

I have assembled and painted the grot tail gunner and glued it in. (Blitza Bomba progress.)

I'm painting this bomba green the same way I painted the other one blue. Looking interesting so far. 
I also have and....idea. 

Maybe Orange based yellow layer on top fire or lightning pattern over the green. Might look sick.

Also planning to paint it's bomba with some blue, so they will be lucky enough to hit... In fact blue for bombs all around.

But should I buy Blue dice. I need more hits.
