Welcome to my WAAAAGH!! Mainly Orks, and I'll also be sharing pictures of other projects, such as my better half's Grey Knights (painted by her), my attempt at making a 6x4 game board, a Judge Dredd costume and whatever else happens.
I've now edited this first post to be only images of some of my finished pieces, rather than just showing a load of unpainted stuff on the first page.

All zoomable in the gallery (Click the image to get zoomable version).
And yes, I need a better camera.

And now I've started my second army, Dark Eldar. I'm going for an ancient, decaying, rotten feel for the army, rather than clean and elegant.

So, quick update, army is slowly growing. I've finished another biker, and started on a Deff Dread, along with getting a few more infantry Boys finished.

And the good news is my Mrs has decided to start playing. The bad news is she's picked Grey Knights. The worse news is she's a much better painter than I

The Dread is slowly coming together, I didn't like the rokkit launcher as a hip weapon, so I made attached to an arm.
And I finished my first banner experiment.

Looking good. It's always nice to see an army that looks a little different from the norm.

Cheers. I know it's just kitbashing but I've been away a looong time, and am having to relearn a lot.
Not much in the way of updates. Life has been getting in the way of painting (Damn you, life!).
The dread (Which is called Gork's fang in my head) gained an arm and a couple of Riggers.

Your army is looking good man, although your camera doesn't seem to be doing your models justice with the macro shots! But looking forward to see that Deff Dread!

My photography skills suck muchly, it's true. Probably for the best though
And the Dread is now pretty much all done, bar some paint touch ups and a little work on the base.

So, on with the Ork painting, but I still have about 50 infantry units to paint, not counting HQ models, so to break the monotony I'll be 40King some Skaven, inspired by some of the Skaven mods I've seen here and on other sites.

Not sure about the ammo box on the first "Skaven Dreadnaught", think I'll find a way to attach it to the shoulder pad (Unused Deff Dread plating). The upside down cannon fits almost perfectly into the "movement slot" on the shoulder armour.

the skavenoughts are cool, but i think it needs a head swap to be more orky. I love the objective, and many of the conversions. well done squiggbot.

Hmmm, interesting idea. Remove the tails and use Ork heads instead of Skaven. That's a good idea. I'm very tempted, but the thing is I really like Skaven, and am working on 40King some standard Skaven (Kroot and Tau arms kitbashed/modded onto Skaven). I think I'll pick up some more rat Ogres once these are done to try Orkinating them.

Thanks for the praise, Panda, means a lot coming from you.

Does it really mean that much? AWe shucks you guys are to nice to me, my conversions are often so light, it just a part swap i feel feeble compaired to the mighty ork converters like you i see. Well, i will be excited to see if the orky skaven work out. Other idea, is run skaven as orks in 40k? that seems surprisingly right. Or was that your attention all along? I can be slow to these things.

I'm just a kit basher!
That was pretty much the idea. I only play with friends, nothing serious, so we bend the rules as we see fit. Standard Skaven I intend to field as Gretchin. The Skavenoughts (Much better name) will probably go on as some kind of Nob/Ard Boys/Flash Gitz.
It's a shame there's no proper support for 40K Skaven, I think they're an army screaming out for conversion. Hell, a bunch of them already have guns!


This guy is getting a Gretchin pistol (Freaking love this model, just wanted to 40K him up).

love the kit bashing so far, well done.

I suggest using the skavenoughts for dreadnoughts or killa kanz!

love what you got started tho

Friend asked for step by step, don't have time for that now but will add this picture. Although it doesn't explain much.

So, the point of this blog was the Ork army, not the Skaven that are so good at distracting me from my main goal. But the WAAAGH is definitely growing.
I totally need a better camera/lighting set up.

Fanks boss!

Small supply drop, Ghazghkull has arrived to kick the rockers into shape

This is my first experience with Citadel Finecast, and I was more than a little nervous about what I would get. I think I've been lucky. There's a lot of flash to clean off but no air pockets, thank feth.

I'm thinking of kitbashing/modding these two a little, but I'm unsure. Does this arm swap unbalance the look of the models too much? Ghaz looks a little overly bulky to me with both of his default arms, I want to slim him down a little, but not sure this is the right arm to do it with (No pun intended). I'll also be mounting the shoulder exhaust bits backwards, I don't like them facing forwards.

Holy Zod, this finecast resin sucks up paint like a sponge! Sneaky fethers, GW!
Going with a brown base for Ghaz, as his armour will be well weathered with rust, and I want a brown undercoat for his darker green skin.

Hmm... now if you are going to arm swap GAZ, you gotta go both arms or it will never look right. My suggestion, arm swap both, use plasticard to do some hydrolics, and more armor. RIVETS EVERY WHERE. enjoy life. I do like the arm swap on the AOBR boss it looks very fitting? maybe swap both arms? idk. I will wait to see what you put out.

Damn you, Panda! Giving me good ideas! I was thinking of bulking out the AOBR right arm on Ghaz with some extra armour, but now you've got me thinking of swapping both. Hmmmm.
Quite happy with the severed head hanging from the AOBR gun.

So, another supply drop. Although this one was the equivalent of dropping the supply cache right onto the heads of the troops. Still, not going to rant, done that in a different thread.
LET'S MAKE THE MOST OF IT!
Ghaz has had a layer of Leadbelcher over the brown, then a coat of black. Tonight he's gonna get weathered.
Hello, what's this? Can you guess what it is yet?
