That jet looks so nice. I really like the color scheme and the kitbash. Always looking forward to seeing more from you.

thanks for the responses.

The dirty colouring is something I am working on. My friend painted his ork army licketysplit with fantastic dirty look, in his words "just slapping it around". For me it takes some work to not end up with a neat smooth look.

The yellow is either ye olde iyanden foundation yellow or tausept as base, then washes of Nazdreg yellow contrast ( full and thinned), multiple drybrushing of bad moon yellow. sometime Agrax earthshade.

the checks at this size i use modelling masking tape and drybrush white first then add masking tape square and drybrush the black. the positive of this method is it is easily scratched to add a little weathering.

A surprising close up of the GeeBee pilot. I was tickled to paint his suit in orange as an Xwing homage. Once he is in the jet, most of his lower half is not visible but I know it there (the surprise is how close up shots reveal paintjob not as smooth as I thought). I may dub him Guld Leedda Wanga.



Here he is in his fav place, about to rawr off and blast stuff.






And yep, some paint progress on the Chinorks, here is the pair so mr yellow much further along

First he wows us with a rebel Ork and his awesome dakka plane. Then he shows us the chinorks with paint! Great progress, and the yellows are worth the extra effort, they look great!

thanks! my ork force is a mix of yellows and reds and some black. Reds for me at least are far easier to vary the shades.

finally da Yella Chinork is all done- my first go at weathering/chipping on it- nothing extreme or using powders but I am happy with it. I used the rhinox hide and metal with sponge and brush. I concentrated only on the mid section and flooring where the boys would be stompin n scraping on the way to scrapping.

I've included da red un- just detailing on that now- I have the mountain orks from sheildwolf riding on it. i did some mild conversions to give them guns. They have magnatised bases too and the flat flooring on both chinorks is plastic ferrous sheet. I am also slowly magnetising all the bases and using the sheet in plastic containers for storage.

and now the progress shots.

ah once more unto the covid lockdown in nz. Thankfully I can work from home, but must leave hobby alone during work hours...

I had enough of the air waagh gitz for a while and scattered off to evaluate my ork walkers. Mr red Kinder surprise Kan is the result, a repaint i really enjoyed doing. the mostly metal Kans are kitbashes with three dread at the rear (one is a robogear kitbash). I'll touch them all up ( with paint), to intersperse painting my beastsnagga troops.

and finish that red chinork of course too.

some Walka progress.

the yellow Kans are done for now. I may end up going back to weather and chip them up once all are done. We shall see. I started wargaming with Mordheim and the tail end of bright marines, weathering and dirtied up sci-fi stuff while a beautiful thing, is something I am still thawing out to.



Red kinder Kan snuck in the back for the group shot.




For the last few years I have much preferred building and converting etc than the painting phase, so this post has been great to battle the great pile o shame. I had converted this guy a few months ago, he is an Other side miniature (or bigature) named "the kings hand", I picked him up for half price because he screamed megadread. The shins have been cut down to get that ork hunched posture. Defiler claws, artelM for the Ork head with horns thingy on top and other odds n sods.





I'd delayed putting him in thread on the idea of getting paint on him first but, eh some glorious naked shots is ok for now

Lovely set of Kans you’ve got there Vestibula! Great use of left over sweets and other assortment of bits. The naked MegaDredd looks promising too!

Shame you guys are back in lockdown, though I find long meetings great for cleaning up parts… as long as you’re not on Camera!

Thanks Gobert, yeah cleaning would be fine to do. I have tried painting before and lost track of meeting

the kans are a real mix of stuff, eg one kans legs are from the Macca's Incredibles ball robot thing toy that was training/trying to kill Mr Incredible, kinder, robogear kit, guitar wire and some other military model kit bits- was great fun building them.

Here's ol' Yella, near done, just some lenses and the base sand/grit(plus weathering at some point). This guy has always been unreasonable, and didn't take getting bit to get smashy. The saw arm is robogear kitbash.

That's a nice dread-waaugh you have going there. The conversion work helps make each one feel unique and hand crafted. The yellow is impressive as well, considering you're starting with a black primer.

Great conversion on the King's Hand! I actually almost bought a few myself to convert into gorka/morkanauts but bailed on the project, but you've nailed it

Thanks Mr Nobody, orks are great for conversions because a bit of roughness here or misaligned bit there is all A OK. I see fantastic popping yellows on Dakka and elsewhere; for my orks, I'm satisfied with the darker/murky undertone to the yellow. With my beastsnaggas, I plan to get a cleaner yellow and have an overall brighter look- all that natural living

Boss Salvage wrote:Great conversion on the King's Hand! I actually almost bought a few myself to convert into gorka/morkanauts but bailed on the project, but you've nailed it

thanks Boss Salvage, fyr, the kings hand plastic is much softer than a gw model and can be bent if you pushed but retains memory so goes back to shape. It was very easy to cut ( just in case you come across a bargain). You've reminded me of an earlier post I made for my gorka/morka nauts then did not update again cos life https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/609966.page. One scratchbuilt/kitbash and the actual kit. they are painted now so I'll post up some painted shots later in this blog.

Here's an update on the red dread, Mista Claws or maybe Mr Krabb, Ol' Yella is in the shot for size comparison. The red sections are finished, needs touch ups on the metals and some yellow panels with spot of black in similar proportion to Ol' Yella's red & black bits. It may detrack from an overall army coherency but eh, it's Orks Hopefully the colour cross spotting will pull them together visually.

Really cool work on those ork mekaz, both the building and painting is looking really nice!
I would encourage you to put a bit more time on the bases, with a few more elements they would make the miniatures stand up even more!

thanks for the praise and encouragement! Yes! re bases

I had been thinking that myself, and the larger bases really emphasise the serviceable but bland current style. I am investigating easy (time wise) options as painting base materials is a nope for me if at all possible to avoid. The premixed geek scenics looking the goods for the lazy basers. I've ordered some and will play about once they get delivered.

quick dodgy grab bag progress shot. I have the reds and yellows done on the red killa kans, the red Mr Krabbs dread is nearly done now. Ole Yella is in the shot to show coherency overall so far. Hmm, now that shot is uploaded I see that I left off one red kan he'll be in next time.

Loving the variety you’re getting in these guys. I’ve got to agree with Killatorres, though I think what he was meaning was to add some items to the bases rather than changing the main base materials. Maybe throw some scrap from your bits box on them? A dead space marine is always a good adornment!

@Gobert - bloody and battered base decorations are tight! but it would break my lazy base guy process you're right that it does add a lot. I'll think about that, especially for characters; makes a nice change from foot on rock to broken marine.

not much progress over weekend - it was first weekend on a lower covid lockdown where restaurants are open (with restrictions). Eating out at a great yum char place was da bestest

Given the lack of progress on current kans, I got my naughts out and snapped a shot. I now note they are not fully finished but nearly done so as i mentioned earlier, here is an update to my earlier naught thread. the red morkanaut is scratchbuilt with lotsa bits - the earlier thread has wip nekkid shots. speaking of large bare bases...

righty, red team is go! I am satisfied with their painted state now. please disregard the bases for now, the scenic stuff is yet to arrive. these next photos were done outside in late morning light, NZ is in Spring now so we are getting actual sunshine ; interesting how light makes all more vibrant, it especially loves bringing out the yellow/brown pop/contrast.



Now a couple shots of red and yella combined!

what da oomies see just before getting jolly welll stomped.


a more top down perspective...


I well pleased that they look like part of the same waaagh- my hazy view is a nascent waaagh, a recent mixture of clans all ready to go waaaagh on non-orks for a change. there is one more dread and three kans that i plan to make mostly black with red/yellow spot colour to stretch the colour coherency more. If I likey, I'll keep it up, if not all good as I struggle with black schemes.

comments /questions welcome

Great work on finishing the kans and dredds, I love the dull yet some how brightness of the reds and yellows. I think you’re right that the spot colours tie them together nicely. A black mob should also work, so good luck with them! Will they also get a Kinder Kan?

hey Gobert, I actually thought i had built three Kinder Kans but can only find two lol. I reckon I will so every group has same numbers- I think GW dropped the ball when they removed the dread kicking kans into line.

Thanks AustonT! a nice coincidence while painting up the geebee blastajet was putting on the Rocketeer movie,I was on a rewatch and all i recalled was Jennifer Connolly was in it, and bingo- there's a geebee in the movie
