Scratch built Heavy DakkDakka's

Ok the first thing we do is chuck away GW glue and go to a good model shop and buy some liquid glue that you can brush on or it squirt from a needle point.

next are your tools, that pic below is mine, i use metal rules too, a big and small one, all so a girls nail file, best thing ever and also some sand paper, fine is good.

the next things you'll need are plastic tubs, buy them online if you know the size or go to a good model shop and buy with your eye's, you need to buy 4 different sizes, they should all slide in to one another, you will see in this tut as we go on, make your own minds up, im not here to wipe your ass.

cut to size, remember your making gun barrels, so if your making small dakkadakka's then cut them small, how ever we are making the big mothers.

draw a line down the centre, the is just a guide for when we drill the holes, we start drilling in the centre on the line and work outwards.



i use my GW knife to make the holes bigger, i just stick it in and twist, it all so make them look a bit uneven and ork like.


put some glue on the inside tube, this wont need loads, then side them together, twist as you do so so the glue gets everywhere.

now we are going to cut some rings from the 4th side up plastic tube, this will help with the look of the gun barrel, you can use very fine plastic card and cut into strips and rap it round till you have the right side. i have done this in the past on bigger guns.



next we are going to make the bodys of the gun, this is make from just normal plastic card, the thicker you have will determine how many you need, as you can see, i only need 2 bits to start with

i'm starting now to cut up other bits of card to build up the look of the gun, i some times us GW DakkaDakka's and copy a small bit of what they do.



this part of the gun (below) is the empty case ejection hole, again build it up with plastic card, don't worry if it looks all over the place, its Orky.


now stick the barrels to the body of the gun, to keep the gun looking straight, the nail file comes in handy and all so twist the barrel round, some times this helps, do this as your (NONE GW) glue drys

making the ammo boxes is easy, we can all make a box, if you can't, then dont read on, and go play with doll's.......OK !!!
you can see ive also made some bits to stick them to the gun and for the ammo to lay on.

i always save the ammo belts and gun sights from my ork models as you never know when you will need them, as a small bit of GW model will help are scratch built guns look the dogs bollocks, and they.

the ammo belts are a little rounded, so just squash the with your finger and remove the mould lines.

now im making bits that look like the ammo boxes are attached to the guns and that the ammo is sat in a cradle, this dont have to look great, as we is Orky Army.

you can see how i'm building it up, its not hard, just cut to size, have a play, then stick.......easy hahaha.


now we are using the smallest tube, not really a tube, more of a soiled small plastic rod, but it fits inside the inner gun barrel, that's the bit we cut into rings, this part of the gun is the recoil rod or Gas buffers, if you know out about guns, but anyway, it make the gun look like a gun.


just copy what ive done and stick it at the bottom of the gun.

now we add rivets, this is cut from a very very very small rounded rod, like the one above, but well smaller.

and now paint.




i hope you like, Orks for ever !!

Thank you for this stroke if genius. Awesome tutorial ill have to try this

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mold them, And in the furnace of war I shall forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armor shall I clad them, and with the mightiest of guns will they be armed. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines, and they shall know no fear.

i would love to give you the size's, but i cant, i by my stuff by eye, if it looks right then i will be (some times)

in all my pics they is usually some thing there so you can judge the size for your self, ie.........is some of the pics i put a GW Dakkadakka in the back ground or next to the one ive made, so you can see scale, dont for get tho, ive made these Dakkadakka's to be Heavy Dakkadakka's.

as for rivets, when you go to your local model train shop, take a bit of model with you that came for GW and that has a rivet on it, then get the size from that, you will always find 2 or 3 different sizes, just copy there's.
