Sorry to have neglected this thread.

Here's a little tutorial for you and an Nob to be going on with, feeling another big project coming on just not sure what at the moment.

So anyways, on my other stuff thread I have posted pictures of this guy....






And I have had some comments about the scimitar, so I thought I would do a little tutorial for it, especially as it shows how I do several of my effects, and can be used for many different things besides a big chopper.

So first up, 2mm plasticard. Here I have black, no odds if you use white or black, I do find however black is softer. Cut it to roughly the shape you want.



Now on the blade shave/whittle the cutting edges. This I did with my trusty scalpel. Please be careful. With practice you can be very neat with this, but this one is an ork big chopper so no need for neat.


Then attack it with your needle file. You won't want to do this for anything other than ork weapons I think. Vary the angle, and depth of the notches.



Lots of little scrapes along the back edge, to make it look like this has just been cut from the side of someones tank, rather than forged.



Attach the guard, now here I use superglue and dust it while wet with Bicarbonate of soda. 1) it instantly sets the glue, 2) it makes the joint look corroded.



Now add a handle if desired. (you maybe just sticking this to a hand, in which case not handle necessary.)



Next I roll out a bit of GS then wind it around the handle. You don't have to be too neat, because you then squeeze it down and scalped it all up.





And there you are one ork big chopper.

Now with these same techniques you can make armour plates etc for orks. And with some refinement and care you could use this to make any sword. Different pommels can be added, different shaped blades.

Well I hope this is helpful, I hope to do one on the rifle next, please leave a thought and thanks for looking.

Hi guys. Thank you for your thoughts. Yes it is a mighty big chopper.

Ok so this might be the last ork I ever paint, just seen Nerdy's orks and they are spectacularly brilliant.

So here is my latest.....







and the group shot so far, only another 5 at least to go.



As always I live for your feedback so please leave a thought or two. Thanks

So needing some ork love.

Firstly thanks guys. Sorry for being so long away from this thread. Been busy on my other projects.

So I need to get me some orkishness....

A while back I saw this kit, in my local toy shop and I had some ideas, then I saw Wyrmalla do a nice model conversion on his blog, of a similar model. Had to go out and get it. My thinking is Grots. There used to be a scorcher model that was a bike with a trailer scorcher unit, was a good model, but I fancy updating it a bit. So here is Camkierhi's scorcher unit.....


The starting kit.


And WIP of the basics.



Thanks for looking.

Welcome sir, nice to see you.

I think that was kapok or what ever it's called, stuffing used in cushions and cuddly toys. Soaked it in black wash, then stretched it out to dry, the other I use is expanding foam torn apart to form clouds, then paint as desired.
