I can see why you think Slasha Gargant, with that as a CC weapon - not sure about the two saw blades partway up the arm, but it seems quite Orky.

I agree with weird extra blades but leaving them for now. They will be easy enough to remove and hide if I change my mind. It does somehow work, just I think. Best not to think about it too practically.

Been and got some mdf sealer, epoxy resin and a mole of rivets and bolts for Green stuff world, all from the excellent element games. Also got a cable maker to add pipes and cables in some of the recesses etc.

Epoxy resin doesn’t work in the mould. Too many air bubbles. Will have to go with green stuff. Going to take a while, nearly finished the basic build, will seal it and then add the details.

It really suits itself to be painted up as sections of metal, just exactly the way Orks would assemble it - throw together plates and slabs of steel, one atop the other, until you end up with a bloated monstrosity.

Sorry, not sorry! It is so satisfying to build but I have put all other hobby stuff on hold since I git it. It’s all consuming. Set aside a few weeks to do it. I have finished main build yesterday. So 2-3 weeks solid.

I never liked the lifta droppa on this kit and couldn’t figure out why but after I built it I realised it’s the lack of pistons. It doesn’t look like it would work. And all the ORK models look as if they may function, just. So I have decided to add pistons.

These pics are the fist or 4 I think I will add and show of the green stuff word moulded bolts that I intend to cover the kit with.

That looks great! I'll probably customize mine and add a ton of rivets as well. I've found these little resin half circle things at Joann's work great for rivets

I’m enjoying making rivets with the green stuff world moulds but off on holidays so no models for a few days. But think after the mammoth task of the build a break will be good before tackling the job of adding rivets and stuff.

Finished making the lifta droppa look more to my tastes. But now want to change the firing nozzle?? As it looks too wooden. Bit of plumbing and glued my fingers together a few times but happy enough with it.

Which weapon's firing nozzle did you think ended up looking a bit wooden, Andy? Any chance of a close-up of it to offer opinions on?

The extra details you've added to some of the arms definitely look like a good move - planning on doing more (besides the rivets)?

Got plans to add rivets, pipe work and cables in recesses, git some valves and dials coming so in all the inlaid areas will have piping and stuff knocking about. Got some guys with big shootas from an old battle wagon kit and about 15 grot crew on the way to be added. Will add platforms and stuff round he back to it as well for them.

The picture is the end of lifta droppa, going to swap it out for a piece from a kustom force field one. From the flyer.

Amazing mate! Enjoy. My advice is do things in the order they say and don’t mess with bits your not using yet. It will all just confuse you late and some parts will just drop out of the sheets.

I can see changing the central prong of the Supa-Lifta-Droppa - the end of it doesn't look right without being a sphere.

So I found a Deffstomper head on ebay for around 20 shipped and bought it to be practice with this material. It smells great btw. Like a bonfire. What kind of glue did you use? Anything special or just plain ol super glue?

Is this a file you bought somewhere / you are designing and cutting the pieces with a machine, or you bought the model with all the pieces and building it following instructions?

No not super glue. PVA. I used gorilla glue wood glue. Super strong bind when dry and holds after a few seconds. Had to use rubber bands here and there. Experimented with super glue on the soft card bits but pva is better. Just gets messy other wise and I glued myself to the belly gun quite badly!

Pre designed and cut kit from kromlech. They did it as a limited run for orktober. They still do their bigger stomp as though. Lots of instructions. .

Ha I got impatient and decided to just try super glue gel. Worked great but as you said I glued myself quite a bit. Like if I was to commit a crime now would be the time to do it. No need to wear gloves ha ha. Not to derail your thread but here is where I got yesterday with the head. I have to say I will definitely be buying the body to complete him after this little bit of work. This was easily one of the most fun builds I've ever put together. Everything so far goes in like it should with the only slop being my own fault. Instructions sometimes don't label parts correctly but that's the only issue I've had so far. Kudos to Kromlech

Don’t worry about derailing, it can become the gargant building thread happily.

Wood glue let’s you correct mistakes if you notice soon enough. Another advantage. And that gorilla glue, after 24 hours nothing will part it. It’s great.

The instructions are pretty good on the gargant, it’s the layout of the spores/sheets that impressed me. They flow methodically along in order. Very easy to follow.

I've asked a couple questions in other groups and one guy prime painted his with cheap black primer. Had no issues. I figure I'll keep some of the "sprues" to practice on before hitting the actual build. I'm going to hunt down some gorilla wood glue when I get the body. I've got a lot left on the head. I'm debating using clay to blend the teefs. They're made up of 3 sheets so I'm thinking blending and then carving some cuts into it should make it look like thick steel. Oh and add rivets. Tons of 'em. Might take a page out of your book for the tubing as well because that looks awesome

I used this stuff today, got it from element games. I can did two coats on the whole model, smelt like pure thinners and was sticky as hell but is basically a thick varnish that has sealed it all.

I have painted mdf before and didn’t want the rough graining finish you get so after advice on here sealed it. This was neater than thinned pva sloshed all over the shop. Feels good, smooth.

Started adding detail now it’s sealed. Rivets, so many rivets. Something about the chimneys made me start here and glad I did. I like the look it achieved.

I'm going to look for a can of that sealer. Love the chimneys
Edit: Looks like I'm going to have to go with Mod Podge as I can't find your sealer anywhere. Not even in a google search

I can get modge podge at my dollar store and I have a bunch of old brushes so I'm going to test that out on the deffstomper head.
