Looking really nice. Did he take the head of the greenest beakie he could find, on the grounds that it was the 'ardest one?

Haha! :D I like it!
That’s the reason now.

The reason was to tie him in to other armies I have: Mentor Legion helmet from my army of them, Slaangor head from my Slaanesh CSM and a SW helmet as I used to be a 1kSons fan ;)

I didn’t get chance to work on my Bad Moon flyer today but did bash out four or five gretchin. I have 40 to do, some Bad Moon and some Snakebite. All made from Moonclan grots, though I’m cutting down the pointed hoods on the Snakebite ones and they’ll be clad in brown rags with suitable patterning on them.
I have some spare weapons from a Cawdor gang, which the Bad Moon gretchin will get. I figure the Snakebite ones can keep their bows and arrows. :D I’ll give some shields, green stuffing over the Moon icon so I can put Snakebite symbols on ‘hide’.

The Bad Moon element of the army are, for the moment, to be modelled as the support crew of the flyboy in Da Bad Moon. Bikers and maybe a truck for flying after it and picking it up (or the pieces of it up :D), and the grots as general dogsbodies. I’m going to do some of the grots with tools, and one with glow rods/signals for directing the flyer. That’s the plan.

And some progress on Da Bad Moon.
It’ll be a Blitzabomma I’ve finally decided.

I want to get another someday and do it a bit like the Millennium Falcon - perhaps a dakka-jet - with the pilot out to the right and turrets top and bottom bristling with gunz.

My wife saw the WAAAGH! Banner nob when I had it up on my other monitor. She loved it. She asked if that was actually fabric or if you just painted it like that. Suffice to say, she's a big fan.

And those grots and the Bomma are looking great.

The banner is absolutely spectacular. Has a sort of Aztec look to it, which I really dig. Fantastic work!

I'm also loving the positioning of the turret on Da Bad Moon, that's really clever putting it on one of the existing circular pieces. I'm surprised it isn't ending up as a Wazbom Blastajet though, given its exotic design and Necron origins it's probably full of all sorts of wurr gubbins an' funny know-wots which would go quite nicely with the whole "flying idol of Mork (or possibly Gork)" thing. Not that I'm complaining mind, a dive-bombing moon is wonderfully Orky! I'd be tempted to add some spikes to the inside of the crescent to represent jagged teeth FWIW, though that could be me going overboard.

 

I'm looking forward to the Grots too! I've always had a soft spot for Gretchin and Gobbos in general, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

Thanks!

I might paint some teeth into the hull of the moon. We’ll see :)

And for now:
10 Bad Moon grots. A quickie.

Black undercoat.

Drybrushed grey. This one’s got two torches so he can signal to the bomma....who likely sometimes makes a mistake and drops bombs on the signaller...

Drybrushed Pebble (grey-brown)
med_gallery_63428_13471_321269.jpeg

And all ten have since been dipped in black ink. Now drying outside.

Love your Bad Moonz! Great conversions and painting, I enjoyed reading through your thread. I like how you converted the necron flyer into an ork Bad Moon flyer, its a perfect fit for a looted flyer. I am looking forward to seeing it painted in propa colors.

Still no paint on it :D
I still need to add more plating, more pipes (from the fuel tanks to the holes I drilled a bit behind them), some small square plates for glyphs...various other bitz.

The bombs are pinned into place and are removable for two reasons
I. To keep count of their use.
II. So I can shout BOMBS AWAY!!!!! when using them.

Next up: rope belts to be finished, wood and leather areas, metal...and some yellow on their robes though not much as I want to get them done quickly.
