So, brand new member, long time stalker on the forum.
Started up an ork army for 40k some months ago, and I've gotten a good deal painted.
So far it's very little conversion and a whole lot of classical colourscheme painting.
Painted tons and tons of boyz and some nobz. Very basic stuff, and spending more time on the wakky special stuff.
Still undecided on bases, so every base is just painted black so I can tell what is done and what isn't at a glance.

Scorcha WIP - I wanted to have the flame-guy out front on the buggy, insted of having him torching the pilot every time he fires.
So I'm building a small platform for him.


I decided aganst 4 fueldrums because it clogged up the buggy, looked too heavy and not as wacky as I was hoping.


This is the concept I'm going with, the goblin piggy-back riding is the one from Forgeworld, with an arm-swap-sorta thing, still have to make a steering colum for him.
He's got the dash-board from an Ork Trukk infront of him, I hope it will be obvious that he is driving, when he gets a steering wheel/rod in his hands.


The flamer is from the Killer-kan kit I belive, it sure stretches far ahead. I plan on measuring from the actual vehicle and not the tip of the flamer.

Very nice scorcha buggy. Your pics are kinda weedy though, it's tough to see the gubbins 'n' fiddly bits of the konvershun.

Yeah, I tried uploading them unedited to the Dakka-gallery, not quite sure yet how to work with the gallery for best effect. But untill I work that out you can see them in my personal gallery in full version. =)
The worky-bitz are few and far between, but theres lots of burny-stuff and gubbinz

In an attempt to post pictures of a decent size I'm gonna try to host them on photobucket insted of the dakka gallery

Here is a mek for my burna/lootas. I just love the burnas, so properly gonna be stuck with those lads most of the time =)

Very basic paint job but theres so many boyz so I can't get bogged down on just one project =)

Some pictures of my killer kahns, the paint scheme shamelessly stolen from TheSecretSquig (awesome painter on this forum), but with nowhere near his skill level, albeit still looking sorta finished. They are unarmed as they were models bought incomplete and used.
I am in the process of constructing Grotzookas and rokkits for them, and magnetizing them in place. Gonna be cool to have the real things insted of reminding my opponent that THIS one has this and THAT one has that.....



I am very proud of the rust on the driller, having always painted clean smooth heroes and nobles of the Empire, on a white undercoat.

That skorcha buggy is looking very cool. Your paint job's a good 'un too! I really like the black outline on da teef of da kanz, looks very cartoony. You are right to be proud of that drill bit. That rust and the shiny [arts look perfect.

Plan is to have it mounted on some sort of pillar and then use a hatch from a landraider so it can turn and swivel (spelling?). I want to use it as a Kill-Kannon for a scratchbuilt battlewagon (well in the future), and a Counts-as-looted-vehicle-with-boomgun mounted in the transport section on a Trukk. Can see a small doodle on the paper for that.
The ball-generator bit is canned, but I am gonna do that pyramid-thingy you can see in the middle of the gun. Properly gonna paper-strips turned tightly around the gun in smaller-and-smaller quantity to make that tiered look.

Help wanted:
Any good tips or ideas for worky bits and how to orkify it? I realise I've been very tidy and neat in the work so far, and i'm worried it will end up looking too un-orky.
Ideas for bits, what to add *(and where) are most welcome. Paint-edited pictures as well
Perhaps a grot pilot on it of some sort?
Not too sure how to make the claw around the center gun yet, but I've got some plastic rods for the hydraulics and lots of wire to erh... make the wires with.

Well, plenty of rivets, of course. Check his out too: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/690/399826.page dsteingass made this amazing dial board for his terrain. I think a couple dials like that on the side (the bare middle, that is) would look cool and be perfect for a mek to be pondering.

As far as the claw parts on the front, I'd say: try cutting them out of the board you used for the body of the gun. Really just the basic shape of the claw. Then add all of the detail with much thinner card stock. (or plasticard if you've got it )

Thanks for tip and that cool link, I love Necromunda but that bloke recreating the terrain is just incredible. It sure looks amazing.

So, got some progress on the gun.
Plan is to use it as looted vehicle, killcannon on the battlewagon or as an actual liftadroppa if I ever get to play Apocalypse. Can't stand having it just sitting in the cupboard =)




I've begun rivetting, it really looks cool. No rivets on the pictures yet.

Dare I say it? It looks just a bit too big for a Trukk... (can't believe I'm saying this about Orks!) Still, I imagine it will look perfect in a Battlewagon...

Yeah, it looks pretty huge for a Trukk. It looks a little less oversized IRL, but it is properly 10 % atleast too big, but alot of that is beause the pillar/colum its standing on is too tall.

Its just so frustrating to discard something you've worked hard on and redo it =)

Don't discard! Repurpose!

Though, in my opinion, the pillar/column is in perfect scale to the gun. Just beef up the Trukk!

i think if you bulked out the back walls and made a proper cab for the trukk it would look perfect

So, a bit more work on the Gizmo.
I've decided to have one trukk that I bulk up like Dakkagrot suggested, and that will double for looted vehicle when I'm not using it as truck.
I've looked at many trukk conversions, but I'm unsure how to make a cool-looking cap for the trukk without changing the ramshackle appearnece of the model as a whole. But I guess I'll just have to throw things on and it will look fine =)

I've shortened the collum/pillarthing a bit, and still missing rivets on it. But added machinery and pipes to it, making it much bigger on the cargo space of the Trukk, making it a bit more balanced and still orky. Also a box with controll panel on the box next foot of the pillar.






Plan on making 3 worky-bitz on all sides of the lifta-droppa claws to in-part bulk them out and in part to add details that will look cool. Haven't worked much in this big scratchbuilding, so still working on how to create cool looking worky-bitz and gubbinz =D

COngratulations on making something cool out of that horrible old warbuggy kit. Your rust effects are looking great - they're stippled browns, I'm guessing?

The rusteffects are browns, oranges and yellows stapled on with an old frayed brush, drybrushed with metallics over it, Mostly its Tin bitz with chainmail or mithril silver drybrushed over that again.

Still missing paint on a few details I missed the first time around, but it looks cool now.
Haven't got a painted trukk nor a painted battlewagon, so thats a good next project. So many things to do =)

The colum can actually turn/pivot on the spot, it is a turret from a land-raided with loads of plastic card on it, but the base is not really heavy enough for it to be practical. Properlly have to stick a ton of washers or something like it underneath.






So, what do you think?

That lifty-droppa is awesome. Hafta admit I don't see the problem of it bein' to big for the trukk the way I see it orky construction works like dis. Vehicle stolen-Add more guns-Guns too big for vehicle-Expand vehicle-to few guns-add more guns-Expand the vehicle and so on until you get a Battle Fortress or possibly a Gargant and after that a Space hulk. Your trukk is simply at the Vehicle to big for its guns stage!

I really like the idea of just making the trukk bigger, so I'm gonna get around to doing that. First, theres a few normal trukks on the chopping board, and some bikers... and ... and....

Few more shots of the gizmo, and a couple for bigfish =)





Gun pivots on the spot, thanks to the earlier mentioned land raider turret-thing (actually i think its the twin-linked assault cannon mount, but I digress =) )
Dont own a painted trukk yet, and the roll-cage thing is in the way on the one I have that is the most painted. I think this will be the trukk that gets bulked up, already did some stuff to it.



I'm not sure about the battery. I wanted it to look very different from the red bits, since I imagine that it is simply some huge battery they have stolen from the Empire and strapped to their lifta for power, hammering some iron in place and using rusted chains. Does that come across?

In one way its really cool and orky the way the Lifta droppa is like hige in comparison to the truck but at the same time the human part of my brain is saying Wtf??? how???
but meh it looks really orky, also really liking how you have got the imperium box thing on the back, very cool

I'm pleased that you think the imperium box fits, I've given it a couple of light green glazes on the edges to make the box a bit more green and have a completely different colour-valeur than the red-brown of the ork-bits.
Got some deck-plate-sheet from the railroad hobbyshop so should be able to bulk out the trukk in time.
