Nottingham (yay!)

Not an update - though I can report that the three Pretenders will start getting painted soon, and I have a whole new mob of Lootas nearly made - but a quick announcement.

I made the 'I Ride For Doomthumbs' sig banner a few months ago now. I'm not going to get into the issue it relates to; if there is a place for that topic to be discussed on Dakka, this blog isn't it.

Only thing I'm saying is my bandwidth on Photobucket is getting devoured. 7GB a month is being downloaded. That 98KB banner is the only thing on there - to my knowledge - that is being used en masse. (By my maths, assuming no mass linking to other images in my PB: 75,000 views a month.) If my bandwidth reaches 10GB, then all those banners will become a 'bandwidth exceeded' sticker.

If you've chosen to display it in your sig, please consider changing the img link to http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh206/lindsay40k/DTbanner-1.gif - it's the exact same image, with a barely noticeable reduction in quality that makes it use less than half the bandwidth it's currently taking up.

Halfway through painting Duffgul and his ladz. Before I reattach Lotsaduff's face plate, let's give his facial burns some airing:







Painted with various blends of Gretchin Green, Mechrite Red, Dheneb Stone, Thraka Green and Baal Red. The red eyes, whilst not particularly standing out here, really seem to stand out when the faceplate is on.

Update.1: made the blending on Lotsaduff's teef finer, and used a bit of gloss varnish to give him shiny eyes and a load of snot and slobber dribbling from where his nose and lips should be! Hopefully the effect will be nice and subtle behind his faceplate!

I'm thinking about taking Waaagh! Grimfing to a campaign type thing where you have to build your army in 250pt additions. With what I've got already, and the things I really wanna paint soon, this is what comes to mind:


Month 1, 500pts:

Big Mek, KFF
20 Orks, Nob w/klaw, Bosspole
10 Grots, Runtherd
Deffkopta, Rokkits, Buzzsaw
3 Kanz, 2 Rokkits, Grotzooka


Month 2, 750pts:

Big Mek, KFF
Snikrot, 5 Kommandoz, Burna
30 Orks, Nob w/klaw, Bosspole, 3 Rokkits
13 Grots, Runtherd
Deffkopta, Rokkits, Buzzsaw
3 Kanz, 2 Rokkits, Grotzooka


Month 3, 1000pts:

Big Mek, KFF
Snikrot, 7 Kommandoz, 2 Burnas
13 Lootas
30 Orks, Nob w/klaw, Bosspole, 3 Rokkits
19 Grots, Runtherd
Deffkopta, Rokkits, Buzzsaw
3 Kanz, 2 Rokkits, Grotzooka


Month 4, 1250pts:

Warboss, Big Choppa, Eavy Armour, Cybork, Bosspole, Combi-Skorcha
Big Mek, KFF
Snikrot, 7 Kommandoz, 2 Burnas
13 Lootas
4 Nobz, Stikkbombz; Power Klaw; Big Choppa, Combi-Skorcha, Eavy Armour; Combi-Rokkit, Ammo Runt; Painboy
30 Orks, Nob w/klaw, Bosspole, 3 Rokkits
19 Grots, Runtherd
Deffkopta, Rokkits, Buzzsaw
3 Kanz, 2 Rokkits, Grotzooka


Month 5, 1,500pts

Warboss, Big Choppa, Eavy Armour, Cybork, Bosspole, Combi-Skorcha
Big Mek, KFF
Snikrot, 14 Kommandoz, 2 Burnas
13 Lootas
9 Nobz, Stikkbombz; 2 with Power Klaw; Big Choppa, Combi-Skorcha, Eavy Armour; Combi-Rokkit, Ammo Runt; Painboy; Power Klaw, Waaagh! Banner, Bosspole; Eavy Armour; TL shoota; 1 vanilla.
30 Orks, Nob w/klaw, Bosspole, 3 Rokkits
19 Grots, Runtherd
Deffkopta, Rokkits, Buzzsaw
3 Kanz, 2 Rokkits, Grotzooka


Not ├╝ber-competitive, but robust and should be fun for knockabouts. Snikrot and a tooled-up Deffkopta are pricey, but in small games on small tables they can easily take out a massive chunk of the enemy. There's better 1,500 Ork builds that specialise, but I like this selection, it feels like it has synergy. The Nobz are on the face of it a shenanigans unit, but they're each based on a specific character and the wargear reflects their planned look.

I like the list growth plan, but i have never found deffkopters with buzzsaws to be that effective on there own, still sounds fun and will be looking foward to seeing you make and paint the stuff as time goes on

90% through making my Deffkopta conversion, and today's GWdotcom blog publishes the same idea

Fortunately, I have something original planned for the remaining 10%

Incidentally, anyone know of a make of plastic rod with a hexagonal cross-section? I want to make a load of bolts...

I'm forever coming across ideas that I thought were totally original to me, wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't that a lot of them look to be better executed than my version would have been

Nice work on Octo's face.

And the chipping on the blue.

And for hex rods:

Nottingham (yay!)

We got ourselves three updates today. First up, got the first batch of counts-as-Gretchin painted up:



Warhammer Crypt Ghouls with Gretchin pistols, and sculpted officer's hat and dogtags. Forgot to paint on Imperial military tattoos, I'll return to that when I paint another batch.

Next up, the Slugga Boyz have had an influx of recruits:



Yep, both photos are crappy; awful weather and pre-xmas clutter meant I just had to snap them in the cabinet. Threw in an antique Black Orc, and made a Nob with sideburnz. He was one of my first conversions, and since making him the army theme has changed a bit; every Nob and suchlike needs to be an homage to a named Transformer. So he'll probably need retiring at some point

Finally, two new Nobs and a Big Mek; Morsnagga (whose antique slugga is carried on a mag-plate when not in use), Vrumskar (who has skilfully used a knackered Missile Pod to adapt the output of a Deff Dred generator to 'ovaklok' a pair of Shield Drones), and Ripoff (who advertises his ill-gotten wealth with the biggest pair of Teef ever looted):



Liev Schreiber's Sabertooth helped inspire Morsnaga's 'beast mode'. He's kind of a trial run for how I intend to make Dinobot and Predacon Nobz. Probably going to add a pair of cat ears to his helmet before painting. I only need to make some Doc's Tools and the Painboy based on Venom will complete my Mayhem Attack Squad-inspired Nobz and Warboss. (Spinister and Battletrap will be joining the Deffkopta Corps, and Carnivac already leads a Kommandoz unit.)

Those sideburnz are awesome

The three new characters are looking good. The 'beast mode' is an interesting idea, love the overklok'd shield drones and it's a shame lootas don't have nobs, Ripoff would have been ideal

I do like the fact that you take the time to add links to the original inspirations, my TF knowledge is sadly old and fuzzy for a lot of these guys.

Update: I've now got a full Mayhem Attack Squad converted and undercoated. Very happy with how I've made Venom into a Painboy.

I've got a super-secret commission in progress, which oddly enough has led to more hobby time as I've had to reorganise my life around it. So, expect updates soon.

Good to see you posting again.

Interesting array of bits there, just home from work so brain still not functioning correctly, therefore I won't hazard a guess Except for there probably being a pair of limbs in there


Still tinkering with the commission? Sounds impressive, any timescale in which we're likely to see any of it?

It's my first professional commission and I've not worked to a timescale before (and I've got health problems, to boot ), so that'd be a bit vague to predict right now. But it's coming along!

Hi! I've only just recently joined Dakka and started reading this blog today, it's a lot of fun and the conversion work and attention to detail is inspirational - it brings to mind the Ork-Genestealer cult that was featured in WD #135 - but your boyz take that concept a LOT further. I'm an Imperial/Nurgle player but there's always been something alluring about Orks. My hat to you sir!
