Hey guys! This is my first blog, so bear with me. Hopefully it'll inspire me to push my painting a little faster, because I'm slacking off a little more than I'm used to. Lately I've been in a Fantasy Battle kick so most of the recent+future progress will be dwarfs. If y'all want I'll post some more pics of my orks too.

My first few posts will be very pic heavy, as I need to catch up to now with my progress.

Anyway enough gab, here are some recent shots:

Now that you're (mostly) up to speed with my work, here's my latest build:

A scratch built bolt thrower! I know they're not great in game, but I saw someone do this on another forum and the inspiration was too good to pass up.

Nice dwarfs man they could do with some lighting effects or spot colours to brighten them up but other than that, they are really nice.

Major shift in progress... I've started working on my orks again. I've caught the scratchbuilding bug, and I've always wanted a flier. Thus, I started building a small fighta to see where my abilities lie. This is gonna be my first entry into the ork vehicle bildin' kompetition- http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/381018.page

You have some considerable scratchbuilding skills! I was a little skeptical when I saw your construction methods (using some sort of foam for the body and duct tape to hold it together ), but it looks like it's shaping up okay! How solid is it?

Keep up the great work!

Well the duct tape is not what holds it together... It's just strengthening the wings and tail, which were stuck in with tenon joints. I just wanted to put a little more tension on both sides to help keep them from wobbling. Now it's pretty solid, I could easily drop it on the floor without the wings bending or moving.

Thanks for the comment!

Well, I've made some tremendous progress on the fighta over the last few days. Have a look. It's almost completely covered over with plasticard, which means I can start doing the gubbins and worky bits. So far it's been an awesome ride, I hope you enjoy!

Great job overall! Nice mix of pre made and scratch made terrain. Your dwarf's faces look like they are nicely done. Keep up the awesome work.

Those jet blasty gubbinz are looking good. I admire your abilities with curved surfaces, I'm still learning how to deal with them.

Thanks. It wasn't too difficult, but it had a few issues during assembly. The problem was the materials I used. As a base for the jet I glued on a washable marker that had been cut in half. That was a huge mistake, because the superglue I used did not stick to it at all. Pre-bending the pieces helped a lot, as did reinforcing the plates with extra patches like a scab.

That dwarf bolt thrower looks nifty, thanks for passing on the idea.

The fighta looks also promising, waiting to see it finished.

Thanks for the comment. The BT was pretty easy to make, problem is now I don't have any crew for it.

Fighta progress: I added some cabling and wiring to and then started riveting. Anybody out there have any tips for efficiency? It's a naturally tedious process: I'm cutting up styrene rod and gluing on the little individual rivets.

That fighta kicks ass! I love the detail you put into each panel with scratches and everything. Really good stuff. For rivets I just use dabs of wood glue using a toothpick and it comes out pretty nicely, and is also pretty forgiving if you mess up--you just wipe it off. If you're interested in trying something new I recommend it...not too tooo tedious.

A word of warning though, when you do it, the rivets don't look very substantial at all when the glue dries, but as soon as you get the undercoat on it you can tell just how much they do actually stick out. Also I sometimes will go over rivets twice if they really don't look very raised after the glue dries the first time. Just a thought!

PS how are you planning on making the cockpit? I'm interested to see how that turns out

That's a sweet idea 'sauce, I'll have to try that out. I wonder if it will mix well with the rivets I have already though. How well does the glue stick to styrene?

The cockpit is on: it's open, there's an ork sticking out, and he's got sort of a cage-y thing around him. I'll let pics do the talking, as soon as I can get them up.

Ok, here are some pics of it halfway riveted. I'm using cut up styrene rod, but on the underside I used dots of glue (thanks Awesomesauce!) because it was a little faster to do. Anyway I'll let the pics do the talking.

Edit: forgot the pics

Lol no prob. That sucker really does look awesome! All of the detail that you put into it really does make it look great. And the nob looks pretty shnazzy too, What colors do you use for their skin? I like it better than what I do, though my method is admittedly very lazy...

@awesomesauce: the skin for this guy was actually a little more complicated than what I normally do. I basecoated in gretchin green, highlighted with camo green, then washed it twice with watered down devlan mud, then finally highlighted it again with streaks of camo green. I might hit the really raised areas with an even lighter color.

Thanks for the kind words guys! Glad to see some people following this thread.
