Nerdy always makes stuff look top notch! the power station having a light up command board is a great touch!

Hey dudes! so looking at the consensus you guys like my shed and subtly want me to Orkify the tank? I won't lie to you seeing it sitting next to my Ork Boyz I can certainly see how it would look so good! only thing is what would it be? is it similar size to a Battlewagon? or does it have to be a stand alone only for big games? I have this crazy idea of painting it up as loyal and then literally converting it to be looted by Orks

now, on to the progress got my flesh on today and everything you see here i just 2 or 3 colours, Tallarn flesh, Ogryn flesh wash, and vallejo 'sand' starting with Tallarn Flesh I coated all my skins and then washed them with Ogryn, following with tallarn again slowly adding a little sand colour to highlight and watering it a little more each time the only other concession is a tiny amount of scab red for the lips and cheeks/nose.

I'll start with these guys, they have the least details on their faces or at least the most shallow still looking passable for sure and I think one looks like Owen Wilson!



also have some on the Dwarfs too! now these guys I like lots, so much character in each face, they really have some awesome personality



yes you can tell the last guy is my favorite lol

and the Dark sorceress is tricky only due to some muddy details but I'm getting there with her

The dwarfs are looking good and full of character nice job so far, the Vampire temptress is coming on nicely as well like the robe colour very fitting.

Orks are a bit basic so far but see where you are going so looking forward to progression on these

Nice family shot kids are white and fluffy and the wife looks very happy so you are doing better than most of us

Well, this took longer than I expected I had the intention of just tacking on some bits and it'll look like an Orky tank! well wasn't I wrong! as I started I sort of fell into the fuge of making it look right in reference to having the tank look like the Kommando Orks have found a blown up one and tried to make it look like a real imperial one so they can sneak close and boom thingz to deff!

I wanted to still have it look like a Baneblade .....but not I wanted it to look like an Ork vehice........but not so, I think I've got the balance right and the look and feel spot on for my army! I added H beam rods drilled through with bars and rivets to hold the side turret back on that was obviously shot off at one stage my favorite part is the turret driver guy! I like the languid pose not usually seen on Greenskins.

anyway lets have a look at it, I spoilered the work in progress and before the re prime incase anyone wanted to see what I did.
Spoiler:























So there we go! a counts as Battlewagon, we have 2 shootas and a rokkit launcha and transport room!

I don't know what stroke me the most.
That baneblade or... are these giant living fluffy plushies ? ^^


Your custom of the battletank is really nice, it's subtle enough to not be ridiculous, but at the same time it looks orkish at first sight. I love the wood planks on the side, that's definitely an idea an ork could have.

Oh, and the pilot or gunner, well, the ork on the turret has the perfect face.

Ha the Orks prevailed and you have done a fine job indeed, as Minus said you have managed to balance this well as it resembles a Baneblade but screams Ork !!!!

The bits I love are the wood detail inside gives that anything will do theme, the cabling running from the side turret into the armour plating crude but efficient, the laid back attitude of the tank commander kind a like he can't quite squeeze his gut in the turret

The thing I really love though ( and going to steal ) is the oil barrel for a turret Brilliant !!!! along with all the little scrapes and gashes in the body work really pulls it all together.

Now I must go to ebay and look for a cheap baneblade kit

I like what you did with the Baneblade Damo, quite a cool idea having it Ork disguised as Guard disguised as Ork !
The guy is the turret is fantastic !
Nice one mate , chuffed you did something with it after it had been in my bits box for so long !

Baneblade looks grouse, Damo. Nice and Orky looking.


Love your skin tones. You really manage to get a lot out of your faces with so few colours.

Waaaaagh! I had a really nice day today just painting and not really rushing anything, I wanted to still give myself the goal of finishing the turret driver which I did and am suitably stoked with how he looks, it sets the tone for the rest of the work on the Wagon-blade!

I did nearly get the two riggers finished as well, but not quite yet. the guy hanging from the pipe on the interior is removable for ease of painting, I wanted him to look a bit grimy and oily as if he's been in and out of the smoky innards. I also didn't mention before but in the hold you'll see the rear wall doesn't quite make the opposite side? this is intentional to give the impression that there may be more room behind the bulkhead for more Orks in the squad











I was having a little trouble with working out a good direction and colour for LittleH's knighty hammer guys? I thought they looked regal so purple would suit them, I also wanted to steer away from just painting the mail silver/wash/silver so i used greys and whites instead the faces look better now after another wash in the recesses but they are still fairly rough by what I like to produce, a bit more work and they'll come right







So there's today's fun and frivolity, I'm trying to balance a few of my own model interspersed with the fun other stuff

I like the way the.....Banewagon.....Battleblade....whatever is turning out. I think in your hypothetical apoc game it could stull run as a Baneblade too, always a plus.
