^^ Got some work done on Bubba! Mostly Edge highlighting on the purple. I'm aiming to get the orange done in maybe yellow, so it'll show up nicely. All this is still before weathering as well. Got the LED kit, and started trying to figure out how to place it. I may go ahead and put the switch in the bottom as it's the most accessible anyway.



And my son's DE kits came in today =D I'm pretty excited he's been wanting these because he wants to do the hobbying all by himself =D

Bubba is looking great. Love the scheme you use for your orks.

Look forward to the DE. Quite a tough start, but sure he will do fine.

Bubba's looking good.

Good luck on the DE models. Those overlapping armour plates are tricky to paint well (although shortcuts are available; dry-brushing for example) .

Thanks guys =D he's fixin to start on his actual assembly. I have another airbrush needle coming so I can let him use it to prime.



Coming along!! I can't wait to start the weatheringize (soon tm!)



Here's the work I've done on the LED for the head so far - I wanted to try to backlight it as well but I think the LED is blocked too much so I may not put it in after all (I have two LEDs). I'm waiting for the glue to dry, that's holding the LED in place, praying it doesn't shift.

Great piece of work- looking forward to seeing how the lighting effects come out. I want to try adding LED to a vehicle coming up, and am eagerly learning how it goes with you.

Well, I'll tell you - I wish I'd waited to put the head together, and some other bits before trying to place LEDS, would have made it a lot easier. Live and learn.

the second LED isn't so visible when the doors are closed, sadly, but it does a good job otherwise. The head looks a bit less bright from this angle, but it's pretty noticeable IRL.



Just waiting for glue to firmly set, so that I can start the rest of the edge highlighting and final touches before weathering =D

Thanks gents! appreciate the comments a lot

I did a bit more WIP on the Gorkanaut - it's all in the edge highlighting so if you don't see a huge difference, that's why More pics are up in my gallery as well as I want to record every stage before I start weathering mah beasty

Man, those edge highlights do make everything pop out. Also, I love the sea beasties. Really really cool!

Thanks! =D a lot of the edge highlighting is (already) gone lol as is a lot of the base coat.

Tbh I LOVE weathering. When I first started painting it was a really hard jump for me. To spend so long painting a model really really nicely, then to basically just completely 'mess it up'. It's a different mind set. Now adays I look forward to messing it up with excited glee (maybe a little too much...)

Perhaps in a perfect world, where you were able and willing to take time to plan how the weathering was going to go exactly, it'd be faster to paint only where you want the 'nice' colours to remain, but I've never found that works. I can't really plan where I want to weather. Or where the paint will stay etc. It's easier to paint the whole thing first and then go to town.

Anyway, slight ramble there sorry! PICS!

Thanks Cam! appreciate the setiment for sure.

I got a couple pics snapped while waiting for the weathering powder to dry/set etc - hoping to have better ones up soon, after I get his base done.

Thanks Cam =D I'm having a ball with him, I really want another one now lol

For some reason, I decided I needed to tr to make a grot sandcastle... as part of the base (beach theme) so now I'm on my second attempt at it. Milliput alone did not work. Well, maybeif I knew how to sculpt. But anyway, hopefully it'll work this time, if not I have one more idea. And if that fails I'm a call it and just get the base done without

Anyway, meanwhile, I've been working on my entry for Wyrd's Iron Painter (Elim). Been wanting to do a sewer scene for a while so I was pretty keen on it. I'm gonna keep it to shoot pics of my rats on after too.

Thanks guys =D I thought I uploaded these already but apparently not >< been one of those weeks sigh

Been doing a lot of random terrain (as we need more to play with!):






Did some more work on my Kraken Diorama (waiting on some lil hills to dry so I can start adding the aquarium plants into the diorama atm):



WIP on some objective markers I got from Fenris KS - awesome details on these guys:






And I gotta wait on the Killakanz touchups to dry then I can get more details and weathering on them!

More on Kraken Diorama:



Mostly starting to glue the plants in, lot of waiting for glue to dry!

Got placement of most of the critters and mounds set, I think.

Need to paint the backdrop - I'm planning on running nylon thread from the backdrop to the taller plants to help them stay up, otherwise they have a tendancy to fall over.

Thanks Dr H =D

Speaking of colourfull... lol





I was all about making this guy yellow - as I just really like the yellow dakkajets. And my son goes, "you should make it rainbow!" thus was the Painbow created lol

Needs some touch up in places, or not - as I'll be weathering it anyway I figure I'll go ahead and weather those spots. (that's what that undercoat of rust was all about)

^^ WIP shots of the Warbuggies



^^ Here's the Skimmer/ocean version (has a ski on the front foot instead of a tyre); it's made from most of a base model warbuggy with some added bits and plasticard



^^ Here's my Trike version (base back is mantic bit a friend sent me, front is mostly deffkopta and some plasticard with a Kromlech wheel)


^^ Here's the fairly boring base model.




Because the Dakkajet needed more dakka (since it's an ebay model I only got what came with it, so I decided to add to it)

Yep, certainly colourful enough for the squid.

Thanks again Dr H =D

Hope you all are having a Merry Christmas!

I of course stayed up late painting after wrapping Santa presents hahaha





Here's a couple shots of my base model Warbuggy - looking better I think now it's finished. Still wish they were larger but oh well. I'm off to finish the other two, Taking a bit longer because more bits of course. But they should be done I hope today. Really looking forward to getting more of my Orkz done before the end of the year, or at least shortly after the beginning. And I have my LOeR project I want to work on!
