Since it's been taking some time for me to get my army finished I figured I'd post what's already been done. That'll give me the motivation to keep going. So without further ado here come da boyz!

Your boys are looking good, giving me some motivation to crack on with some painting too!

I like the pose of the boy who looks likes he's charging into for a fight (first pic on second update I think), is he a standard model or did you re-pose him?

This is one of the few times that someone has done miniatures in a running pose well. Even GW sculptors seem to struggle wth this.

Far too often the models look like they are either about to topple over or are checking the sole of their boot for a stuck pebble.

These look great, keep up the good work

Thanks mad_pies. All the running pose models I've done are custom. Some are done with some simple cutting and reposing others (like the one you commented on) I used some green stuff to sculpt a portion of the leg.

Here are the bikes for one biker mob. They take forever! So many different little parts.
[Thumb - 102_0315.JPG]
I've only done minor changes on these bikes just to make them each a bit unique.

I may change that buzz saw arm to get a proper angle for the handle.

So I decided for my next project to tackle the Warboss. I didn't want to use the existing forgeworld model, although it is pretty sweet. So I decided to kit bash and use various bitz I had lying around. Originally I was just looking for a good way to convert the deff copta into what I needed. After a few designs I figured I would need a bigger base for the engine I wanted to use. I wanted to make it like the old style trikes. New ones look like a motorcycle with training wheels. DUMB! Anyway, here are a bunch of pics of the work in progress.
[Thumb - 102_0346.JPG]
the engine is made of a warbuggy engine and half of a deffcopta engine

[Thumb - 102_0350.JPG]
added the dakkacannon onto the engine. Used a space marine lascannon(probably from a vehicle) and the smoke stack from the wartrukk for the barrel.

[Thumb - 102_0351.JPG]

[Thumb - 102_0349.JPG]
I still used the front end of the deffcopta and some wires too.

Here's a bit more progress on my warboss's bike. I mounted up the gun/engine piece and have done a little painting.
I like to paint as I go that way I can get all the little bits painting before they're unreach-able. I'm pretty happy with how its turning out so far.
I apologize for the blurry pics. Still working on trying to get consistantly focused pics of my work.

Hey thanks alot CommissarKhaine! I was glad I found a use for the buggy. Its actually one of the pieces that I hope GW re-does cause it just looks clumsy. Especially the figures that come with it.

Thanks Boyz R Us. Not really going for a specific tribe of Orcs. That way I don't have to tailor my army to one tribe. Though I was thinking of making each member of the nob bikers squad from a different tribe.

Here are some pics of a couple of new bikers. The nob has a chainfist incorporated into a cybork arm. I also attached a space marine jump pack on the back. The biker boy just has a modified dakka gun.

New Nobz. 2 more Nobz and a painboy. The painboy's bike is actually a dark green, didn't show up well in the photo. Also his Urty Syringe broke the needle is just too delicate.

Biker boss. Whole lotta bitz went into the making of this boss (Ghorzhag Roadrippa). Magnetized the right arm to be able to switch out the PK for a BC. Very happy with with the result. Though his performance on the battle field could be improved.

Thanks for the praise. Orks are probably the most fun for conversions.
