Warboss_Waazag: Thanks . I like my armies to look coherent on the battlefield, and the orange certainly achieves that

Yorkright: Thank you . I'm definitely a mekboy at heart, I love konvertin' and can spend oodles of time rummaging through bits boxes. Thinking inside boxes... doesn't work for me

Dr. H: it makes a difference to them . Thanks!

Gitsplitta: It doesn't always have to be violence

So, buggy time . I got both the buggies finished, so figured I'd show you guys the result:







Oh, and remember how I said no grot would fit in there? Turns out the ammogrot does:



And an a picture with the cab and doors open:


The grot originally had a cap, but I had to shave it away or he wouldn't fit in, there's very little room underneath the roof.

And two comparison shots:




After building the buggies , I realised I barely used a bit besides the ones from the trukk kit. I did a little rundown in my head, and these are the bits not from the trukk kit: two wheels, a rhino door, a bit from a dozer blade, plasticard and tubing, assorted grots, some rokkits, a shield icon from old WHFB orcs, a faring from a SM bike, some rokkits, and part of a IG tank searchlight. And I still have some trukk bits left over for other conversions

With all the rumours of 8th going around (which I'm liking btw!) , I'm going to focus on finishing off my WIP projects: building the blitzabomma, and painting all the stuff that needs it: the stompa, the old wartrakk, 2 meganobz, a dakkajet, the news biker warboss and cronies, and the buggies of course. That should keep me occupied till June 17th.

Or maybe I'll start on that grot submarine, we'll see

Loving the twin linked rokkit launchers, hopefully there will be some good rules for a mechanized ork force. I used to have a small Evil Sunz army mounted on bikes, looted wagons and the old style battle wagon.

inmygravenimage: Infuriating? That's a new adjective. I applaud your originality

Yorkright: you and me both! I like the' switch to T and saves for vehicles, and I have high hopes so far; let's hope they keep up the good work.

Gitsplitta: thanks, me too. I took it away a bit from the regular' trukk-to-buggy assembly, and I must say I prefer this look. And like I said, with a few more bits, you can easily make two buggies out of one trukk, so that's quite feasible bucks-wise

Neither can I, but right now they've just been undercoated black - not the most exciting of stages, I'm afraid.

Luckily, I continued painting some other stuff!



The two regular grots are nearly done, and the megagrotz are well on the way. The trakk is. getting there slowly. For the stompa, O decided to work on individual parts, so as not to be overwhelmed by the modle as a whole. Painting is always a lot slower than converting for me though - still, it's rewarding to get miniatures fully finished

You know CK, one of the things I really enjoy about this project is that you've still got... after all this time... occasional, lowly grots showing up next to the big, fancy grotz-a-ma-whoozits. Just makes it all so whimsical and fun. Thank you!

Gitsplitta: Thanks - I feel the soul of the revolution should always be the little guys, so I thoroughly enjoy working on them. Still, I always wonder if people will car about a few grots if you see all the great stuff on dakka. Glad to have that concern alleviated

Yorkright: it's the power klaw of the stompa. I decided to paint the beast in smallish bits to retain some modicum of sanity. And this way, even If I do get distracted, I'll get finished bits, hopefully resulting in a finished stompa in the end

Camkhieri: Thanks. i'm more of modeller, but I do the the occasional painting. And with 8th coming up, there's not that many projects I can safely do. I still want to turn a dakkajet into a submarine though, so it won't be six weeks of painting till 8th hits .

So, some lowly grots finished, adding two more to the horde







Not all that much, but a good way to try my hand at painting after four years. Not my best work either, but they'll have to do!

A fair pair there, CK - how many basic grots is that now, and how many more yet to come?

Gitsplitta: well, they're just... grots. I know I like them, but compared to stuff such as certain reavers or morkanauts...

Yorkright: Yes they are, someone has to keep things running . Thanks!

Dysartes: Thank you! I have 69 painted, with 4 kommissarz. No real upper limit, i'm just going to continue adding o them as the inspiration hits me

EDC: thanks

Warboss_Waaazag: thanks . What I like about the last buggy is that he doesn't look like the trukk. I like the trukk, but this takes it away further from the base kit and gives the buggy its own identity, so to speak.

Dr H: thank you, glad you like them

Working on the megagrots right now, experimenting with sponge weathering. I'm in love with this technique I think. Pics later today or tomorrow!

Thanks graven, I like them to be a riot of colours . These two do have a hint of pirate in them, it kinda suits them, too.

Now, as promised, some progress on the megagrots. Taking the pics made me realize I have to fix up the noise of the helmeted one, but other then that, they should be good to go







And some loot I got for my birthday - I love my wife and friends
