I'm loving the buggy. It looks pretty mean. Are you still going to be adding things to the back? It looks like the pole is a mount for a gun to be added in the future.

Thanks. You're correct! It is a gun mount. If you scroll back a few posts you'll see it assembled but unpainted, there's a driver and a gunner but its easier to paint them separately :)

Oh yes. I didn't spot that one the earlier picture. That gunner looks like he's really enjoying himself! I look forward to seeing the end result. :)

Well, I finished the body and chassis of 'Da Rumbla'

(...)

Any thoughts??

I was a bit confused about which end was the front until I spotted the helpful arrow.

I love it.

I finished painting 'Da Rumbla'

L5Zk47A.jpg

 

Very happy with how it turned out, plus the bits for my second one arrived today smile.png

 

I also made a start on some stormboyz

It's amazing how a tiny bit of conversion and kitbashing gives far more dynamic and interesting poses than what's on the box!!

Here's the test smoke trail I made for them

wtkf6ZT.jpg

 

wasn't sure how they'd turn out, but I think I should use them

 

Also, the start of my Nob

Points for anyone who can figure out where I'm going with this guy msn-wink.gif

I don't really see it, but....ok. does it look less like a lawnmower with a driver and gunner?

 

I was a bit confused about which end was the front until I spotted the helpful arrow.

I love it.

Thanks, Yeah, that arrow is probably for the driver. haha!! smile.png

Really good work man! Loving the unique bikers, especially the Snake Bite. Can't wait to see what you do with a Blood Axe biker. Keep it coming!

May I introduce 'Tony Stork: Iron Nob'

 

I also got one painted

Ashen Wolves of Gersemi - Currently about 3200 points of Sisters and Wolves mashed together with three Imperial Knights and a few other things. Looking to expand this heresy in the future and work out kinks of the army lists. For the Allfather!

Got another buggy done: 'Skull Squisha'

These orks seem a bit crazier than the ones in 'Da Rumbla'

Grots are great, I've seen your thread and you clearly feel the same smile.png

Can't wait to see Tony Stork painted.

You should consider a Stormvoy inspired by The Rocketeer as well :)

Very nice stuff! I am thinking about going pens myself. Cult of speed is where it is at for me to. I’ll be running 90 storm boys, 30 shootas, four weirdbous and four dakkajets. This would be the starting force. Something I am still so surprised at is just how expensive irk armies are to build. It is crazy. The list I just stated is over $900 just for the miniatures

Just have the driver and gunner left. for the record the canopy isn't glued on yet so I can get the driver in. :)

 

I've almost finished Tony Stork, might be done by tomorrow. will have pics up soon-ish

 

Can't wait to see Tony Stork painted.

I had to look up the rocketeer, but yeah, maybe when I make another batch :)

May I introduce..."Tony Stork: Da Iron Nob"

gQzZs2N.jpg

 

Really happy with him. getting the smoke trails to line up was a bit of a pain. I feel like it comes across pretty well what he's supposed to be.

 

I also bought some burnas and made a start

2mqhetL.jpg

 

The first one is just stock standard, the second one has has a bigger fuel pack and the last one is a head/leg swap. I've found it's hard to do too much converting with the burnas, because of the way they are built. 

 

I also built a spanner

o36wPxr.jpg

 

I feel like his one eye kinda makes him look a bit squig-y

 

As always, C&C much appreciated :)

Liking the spanner, I think the head works for it as is.

 

Nice job on the stormboyz, now just make about 15 more of them ;)

Finally finished my second buggy: 'Skull Squisha'

IM8ZhiW.jpg

 

Not much to say really, It was a bit of a pain getting the gunner securely attached. But i'm happy with how it turned out, all hot rod-y smile.png

 

I've finished building my Big Mek

UxP9Urb.jpg

 

He's mostly made from Nob, his head is from the burnas kit and the KFF is mostly made deffgun bits. I'm really happy with his pose and level of detail. still need to think of a name for him. Any suggestions?

 

On the subject of meks, I decided to change up my spanner a bit (annoyingly after I'd already started painting) I pulled his backpack off and am gonna replace it with a killsaw I built strapped to his back.

1kJJCqF.jpg

 

Finished the last burna too.

PiH2Y23.jpg

 

He's holding some piece of weird tech he's found, maybe the Big Mek will appreciate it?

 

As always, C&C most welcome

Thanks, yeah, I like the kinda squig-y look. Yes I do need more, they don't tend to last very long, just need to think of more conversions first ;)
