Great work on the 'naut, very hard to put any movement in them and I think you managed it well. Poor gunner being blue screened and all.

"Da Wazbanga"


Few things can distract Warboss Sparktoof from his endless hunt. One thing that always does is “Da Great Gorkanaut Race of Zagnarok”. More of a deadly assault course than a race, it's designed to push pilots to their limits. It was at this event that Sparktoof first met the Gorkanaut pilot Wazbanga,. Five time Zagnarok Champion, Wazbanga was a fan favourite with his egotistically named Gorkanaut “Da Wazbanga”. To the dismay of many though, after meeting Sparktoof and hearing of his Waaagh, Wazbanga instantly retired from racing to join Sparktoff on his quest for “Da Big One”.


Charging into battle flying the checkered flag from his final race, Wazbanga is a fierce pilot and deeply protective of his vehicle. Every dint and scratch made by the enemy is seen as a personal attack on him. The last time “Da Wazbanga” was rendered immobile, Wazbanga could be seen charging an entrenched Imperial gunline with his Big Choppa screaming “You're gonna pay for that you miserable little gits!”

So yeah, I finally finished my Gorkanaut. Really stoked about how it came out in the end. With the big exhausts, red paint job, flames and racing stripes I think it would go like the clappers and perfect for my Speed Freak army smile.png

I had a lot of fun adding all the little details!

When I was about 90% done I decided I needed a change of pace and went back to building, So I started on a Trukk

I'm going for a jalopie tow truck feel...with the bullbar from Immortan Joe's ride in Fury Road
Then I realised I don't have anyone to put in it. (My burnas will go in the battlewagon) So I made a start on some boyz

YU1A2dO.jpg

I've been hesistant on making boyz as they don't really suit the theme of my army, but I have enough bits now that I can try my hand at some more 'wastelander-y' boyz. I think they're coming along ok.

My wife said the Nob looks like Bane so I figured I'd lean into it and gave his mask straps to make him even more like Bane

I also made another Big Mek

As awlays, C&C much appreciated!! smile.png



Very nice start on the Gorkanaut. I'm loving the BSOD on the gun arm. You're making me want to get started on the Morkanaut left undercoated in a box somewhere. smile.png

Thanks. You should, it is both a fun and annoying kit to paint :)






Finished my stormboyz finally! smile.png


The one with the scarf on his face and the slugga looks so gangsta! cool.pngtongue.png
Thanks for noticing, that was kinda the idea, it's why his gun is tilted a bit



That is a really nice Iron-ork conversion! Love his power armor.

Thanks, It's one of my favourites :)



Great work on the 'naut, very hard to put any movement in them and I think you managed it well. Poor gunner being blue screened and all.

Thanks, I did my best, you could probably get more movement, but that's about the maximum without major surgery :)

That's a nice Trukk you have there. The suspension you've made is a particularly nice detail that would be easy to overlook. I like the enclosed cab as well, it looks pretty mean. With the crane on the back it would have been awesome for playing Gorkamorka back in the day. :)

Beg Mek Skrapgut & Mud

 

Skrapgut and Sparktoof had been good friends since they were young, but over time they became separated. Years later their path crossed when Skrapgut was working for Warboss Gordakka, who even by Ork standards was a cruel ruler. All Skrapgut wanted to do was invent new custom vehicles, but was being kept like a slave, relegated to fixing weapons. Sparktoof could see the potential in his old friend and knew his talents were being wasted. He challenged Gordakka for Skrapgut's freedom, saying he could beat any of Gordakkas riders in a race. Gordakka accepted.

 

Sparktoof easily won the race and Gordakka reluctantly allowed Skrapgut to go with him. As they left Sparktoof turned to Skrapgut

“Wot 'ave you always wanted ta build?”

“Well” said Skrapgut, scratching his chin. “I's 'ad dis idea of a Mek Shop...but on wheels”

“Ha!” Sparktoof smiled “You betta get started den”

 

+++++

 

So yeah finally finished my Big Mek

I decided to give him hi-vis overalls, thought it would be funny :)

I'm really happy with the oil stains on his hands and just how colourful he is

I also gave him a grot oiler i'm calling "Mud"

Someone on a different forum asked for better shots of the trukk cab, figured i'd put them here too

Thnaks, I was wondering if anyone would notice that :) The springs came form an old pen

The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.

Just need to think of 3 more fun conversions...

 

Thoughts?

Made 2 more Stormboyz

 

WJ2C4Kf.jpg

 

I've realise that my favourite thing with converting orks has been making kustom sluggas. here's a close up of my favourite one so far

 

BfBfzKq.jpg

 

Really happy with the sleak line of it, not sure it's orky but I like it.

 

I also made 2 more Boyz, again with kustom sluggas

 

T83D55L.jpg

 

I mostly made these 2 because my local GW's 40k league recently went from using power points to using normal points so these 2 will let me use a trukk of Boyz at full capacity :)

 

And also started on my next set of 3 Biker Nobs from each Klan, here's the Goff Nob

Thoughts?

Really enjoyed looking at your mob. The imagination you show is amazing. Particular fan of the snakebite Nob and Cyboar-sheer Orks madness.

Gives me plenty to think about with my own horde which I'm part way through painting up.

I must say my favorite moment was Raven Guard turn 3, where basically the entire army forms a firing squad and guns down Mephiston because it takes an entire army's firepower to take him down. Hilarity.

Finished the mobile mek shop

 

d7CzCWl.jpg

 

Put a lot of work into this, lot of detail going on! really happy with the end result. A lot of stuff changed with my idea as i built it. 

The grot with the Hat is called 'Da Sargent', his job is to man the rear big shoota and make sure the line for the mek shop doesn't get to unruly. He's the only grot the orks respect/listen to because they know if they don't they'll have to answer to Big Mek Skrapgut :)

Thanks, The snakebite is one of my favourites too! :)

Do you have a link to your orks?

Thanks, the mace is from the Biker kit :)

Thanks. I hope to inspire! :) Yeah, I can't imagine many things more fun for an ork than TWO big shootas!
