Some place far away... Yes that'll do.

Nice one Nerdy. That's a mad looking Ghazzy you've knock up. I think he need something under his head though. Because from front on it kinda looks like his head is just floating there with a big blank spot where is neck/upper chest is.


Also, you see that swirly pattening crap you've done on Bjorns assault cannon? Cut that gak out. It makes the rest of us* look like unskilled chumps.

I do like the look of it though and I think it will turn out grouse looking if you manage to achieve the same level of detail model wide.







*By "us" I mean me. It's making me heaps jelly.

Ghazzy is looking very cool, just needs a beret to make him a bit more Blood Axe, I know you were thinking about another head but there's another option for you

Swirly Bjorn is looking very cool so far

Really sounds like a mad house with seven dogs though

Lol thanks snrub! with the dread I am trying to sort of find faster was to get tabletop mini's anyone can do, it's working so far and washing around the raised details even at this stage has produced a good look so i'll try and base coat all the main colours soon and see how we fare!

Ghazzy will either get a new head (most probably) or if he keeps that one i'll fix the surrounding up before I glue his head in permanently

If I had a house boat mate i'd be on it 5 dogs is tiring and even Oscar is sticking to me like glue just to get away from the bedlam!

Yo GFX! thanks ma man! a beret on whatever head I use is definitely possible! it will certainly make him look as if he's the boss even more so than being massive and armoured!

hopefully swirly Bjorn will work and look like I hope, I just re read all the SW Novels and kinda got inspired a bit, I had these images of a really light coloured almost white Space Wolves with a wet dirty feel to them around the legs and cloaks, tattoos on the bare skin where you see it on scouts etc. so in order to NOT do that I had to do a model to convince myself I don't have time for another project this year (remember I still have Celestial Lions accusingly looking at me! )

If you can find the bits this would be cool :
On a 40mm base have a "gaggle of Grots" , 6 or 7 causing all manner of hilarity by dragging a helmet / banner bearer / spare ammo for all that Dakka / probably one discharging his personal dakka into the back of another etc etc !

Though I know the Dready and fantasy troops will get nice work and all as it is you Nerdy, I must say I focused on the detailing that you did on Ghazzy there. he looks very nice! can't wait to see the work in paint you do on him!

I don't care what it is, grot conversions I'm all for. Seriously love them little runts!

Onto the boss!! Dude, that is beast. IMO a Warboss needs to look like he's I in charge because he will kick your face in, and you pulled that off perfectly! He just dwarfs that marine. Can't wait to see some paint

Thanks again gentlepeople I want to start painting the Boss but I must look to what I have promised others first! otherwise I know I will get distracted again and again! but never fear I will 'begin' as soon as I re stock my paint supplies, i'm about $150 in paints needed so far so a week or two and the Boss and Gits squad will be getting some love, in the meantime it's LittleH's fings and my Banewagon etc......

Needing input guys. no doubt at all i'll be grabbing some Dakkajets for my army but I'm not a military man so have no real point to focus them on? what sort of theme as far as era of war do you associate my BloodAxe's with? I want to do some converting of the plane but want to get the feel or design right. :-) any ideas, photo's and advice are welcome!

Utilizing Careful Highlighting







Id say look toward the mid 20th century.

For example, F-86 Sabres:


Or on a more orky front, something Soviet. Like a MiG-15:



Biggest things you probably want to look at are swept and straight wings. None of those fancy-pants delta or blended wings. The chunkier and less aerodynamic-looking, the better!
I also favor the nose intakes and a central-mounted engine/engine cluster. Works nicely with some big ol' teeth and jagged metal areas.

As above. The Dakkajets are a direct rip-off of the Korean-War-Era fighters of the US and USSR. You'll want 1:35th scale for Ork. 1:48th is now too small for GW's super-heroic scale.

Paint it red on top so it goes faster, purple on the bottom so it's sneaky.

And a blue shamrock on the wing for luck.

The kit has multiple ways to build them. You'll find no shortage of ways to orkify them to your tastes.

I like the Mig 15 / 17 or the Sabres as mentioned.

However , for consideration , I give you the Me 262.

I plan on using these for Traitor Guard at some point but would look great with Orks hanging out of it !

I agree with big h. I always imagined blood Axes to be on the German side of things as far as designand style. I think olive drabs, Greys, a super dark contrast color...and you've got a recipe for some super cool orks with a twist not often done. My 2 cents.
