Been a while since my last visit. I feel like I fell into a orky version of Mad Max,,,with cats involved!

That is the true way! May you never run out of ongoing projects!

I don't think there's any chance of that happening anytime soon.

The Road Warrior was definitely a big influence on my builds. And having recently seen the new Mad Max, I'm very motivated to build more.

Exactly! And why start just one when you can start five?

A wee bit of progress on four of my warbuggies (with Supreme Overlord Silk resting in the background).

A bit more progress...

Buggy number 4. I'm going for a hot rod look. Still a lot of work left to do on this one.


Buggy number 5. This is a bare-bones buggy. I'm thinking of having the exhaust pipes sweep up and act as railings for the gunner.

These look fantastic! I really need to start building the trukk conversions I have planned, only once the fort is finished though!

Excellent stuff bud, I am not a mega fan of the ork trukk, but the kit is brilliant for conversion as you are demonstrating.

Thanks. Your fort is terrific and I look forward to seeing what you come up with for the trukk.

Cheers. I'm not too keen on the stock ork trukk, but I think it looks pretty good when lengthened. And you're right, it has huge possibilities for conversions.

And now, mag wheels for the buggy pictured in the background.

Making some slow progress on buggy number four under the keen gaze of Velvet. I really need to clean up my workspace.

Nice work on the buggy's, looking forward to seeing more. As for cleaning up your workspace, I'd probbally just dump everything in that box at the back there,
If their wasn't already a cat in it of course .

Some more progress on buggy number four. There's a magnetized spot on each side for clan icons. Even the driver's head is magnetic. My plan is to have several generic buggies that can be used for any clan just by swapping out the icons and driver's heads, and to build one buggy specifically for each clan, like this one: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/657524.page











I still have to build a stowage rack for the back, and then this one's done. C&C welcome.

Looking fabulous bud, Proper old school Dragster vibe. Like the old Epic scale ones. Awesome work.

Not 100% on why you are worried about changing clan icons. I think of ork armies as a mix up of the whole lot anyways. But it is great thinking ahead like that and I can see how it might help.

Your army is going to look amazing anyway. I am starting to get a great feeling of a Kult of Speed.

Thanks for the kind words. Did a wee bit of painting this weekend on buggy #2 and some clan icons. Still a lot of work left to do.

The plan is to use these in GorkaMorka, and to have several generic ones that can be used for any clan, rather than building three or four buggies for each of the six clans. Years ago I had come up with rules for each clan in GorkaMorka by combining bits of rules I found scattered throughout the interwebz and adding my own stuff. Unfortunately, shortly afterward my computer suffered a catastrophic failure and both hard drives were pooched. The cost for someone to attempt a recovery was at least $500 per hard drive, and I don't know which one my rules are on. So the drives sit in a box and wait for me to win the lottery,

Thanks EDC. I agree there's a lot of great conversions on Dakka that provide me with a lot of inspiration.

A wee bit more painting on buggy #2.

Merry Crimbo.

I do like your colours. They are a nice matt, in a shiny world. The red seems to look particularly good. Sun bleached. Great work.

Cheers Cam. They're even more matte in person. The camera seems to add more shine to the model.

Some more painting done. The wheels still need a lot of work.


I like the effect of the wash of Vallejo Gunmetal Blue I used on the exhausts near the engine. I don't know why I insist on modelling the steering gubbins.


The headlights need some more work.


C&C welcome.

The buggy is nearly done, I just have to finish the wheels and do a couple of touch-ups. Until I get around to doing that, here's a taste of things to come. The start of an elite guard for guilders and an armoured car for Necromunda Arbiter games.

I finally finished buggy #2. Now I just have to wait for the weather to warm up so I can open the windows while I paint on some Army Painter varnish.






And a couple of shots of my two completed buggies.
