Coming together really nicely. Love the choice of colours. Is that a helmet under her arm?

Thanks guys. Yes it is a helmet.

Here you go, tried a bit harder on this one, but annoying because I think I can do better, but too impatient.





And before I stuck her down...






Took some with a different camera and marked difference in colour pick up. Spoilering from here as lots of pics...

Thanks for looking feedback very much appreciated, if you really fancy being nice you could vote.

The purple has come up really well. Like it a lot. Amazing difference between the cameras isn't it? Never trust anything you see.

What sort of paints have you used? I really like the glossier result on the clothes. Her lips have also come up really well which may sound odd. But often you see bright red lipstick on a model such as this so the more natural effect is appreciated.

Thank you for the feedback. No idea what a Jokaero is, need to go look that up.

Putting some basic colour on it, still not decided what to do with the tips of the arms!




Thanks for looking, please feel free to give me any thoughts or ideas or critique.

Jokero are orange orangutans that improve and micronize technology. They are exploited by the Imperium. Your skull thing needs pincer claws at the ends of its arms. Something that looks like it has really fine motor skills. That's my opinion anyway.

Put one of each heavy weapon (or two.....) that you can procure onto each arm.

Thanks guys. Will get to it.

Tonight midnight is deadline for latest LoER comp. so decided I better do some work on it. Was thinking that mine was a bit lacking so decided to add some bits.

Some little plants made of cocktail sticks...




And a tree from sprue....




With details like hanging mosey stuff made from green scrubby...




So heres the finished results....

















And some shots for scale showing also the cover provided by the scenery....





Hope you like, I do not expect to do well the level of competition has increased big time and the work the lads have put in is amazing. I have not really pushed myself here, and in reality this is 4 days work, nothing compared to some peoples efforts.

Got a couple itches to scratch so back soon...any feedback is gratefully received.

The bamboo is crazy believable. I like the 'peeled' cocktail sticks idea. How durable though?

A few more pieces like those and you will have a very nice set of scatter pieces for any sort of table.

The bamboo just impresses the heck out of me-- I know i already said it but it bears repeating. The paint on it really sells it.

Quite frankly, it is as worthy an entry into the contest as any of the rest. So no worries, my friend. You're just working smarter instead of harder

Thank you all tons, really appreciate it. Means a lot to me coming from you guys.

So itching a scratch....

I acquired an old broken drive belt in work. And giving credit where due I had seen this done by others including Magosbiff90, thought of tracks. So I moulded and cast up some sections, and started mucking about with some plasticard.







Starting to feel like a predator variant, no idea where I am going, but will get a slick turret and sponsons.

Heres some scale shots..



I like that it is a bit wide and stubbier, thinking about an offset turret.

Thoughts, should I forget it and donate to Orkdom?
