In stead of making a number of threads on single builds, I want to keep my builds in one thread.
So I renamed this thread.

Basicly the focus will be on Grots, as I like those more, but some Orks will be in it.
Also getting a second stopma and battlewagon for less then 20$ will get more orks involved.

Here is my latest project slowly taking shape.
I started with the tracks, and found that they would fit bet with te rules of the FW rules for the Gunwagon.
The front hatch opens up, and the turret is under way. Now the side hatch is still to do.

Of course it's 'Ard cassed.... And probbably it gets a Grot rigger in the engine compartment.

Thank you, martian_jo.

The treads came from an old 1/35 M60 tank that I had lying around from before I started with 40K.
Now to get a decent setup to make my photo's. Half my photo's dont work as I've got a slight problem with the white of the plasticard.

The gunwagon is comming on slowly. But my photo skills are falling short with this plasticard.

But I made a lot of progres with a new Grot tank. This is number 14 in the collection. 4 to go still. At least....
Now off to paint it....

Love grots. Love grot tanks!
I noticed that all your tanks have similar sized, relitively round turrets. Is this on purpose? I always pictures orks as building with whatever they had lying around, so square, oddly shaped and fixed guns on levers were always prevelant in my mind.

Maybe my mind isn't Orky or Groty enough yet. Your point is somwhat valid. (thanks for the imput)
For me there has to be diferences between the tanks. The turret of the Gunwaggon is a little od shaped, but in the little tanks I have not done this yet...
Maybe on the next one that is gone get build????? For me it still has to look like a tank.... I'm playing with the idea of some walking tanks instead of tracked or wheeled. Also for the diversion between them... Damm, I love this army. It's so much more fun to convert and scratch-build, then build straight kit's....

The Grot Tanks I've build sofar so far have slight diferences in size and overal shape of the turrets. But the FW tanks are kits, I'll have to work some diferences in there as well...
My plan is for no two tanks to look the same. Even the battlewaggons are gone be different in a number of ways.. That's my idea for my army.
Also the battlewaggon kit looks way to good for an Ork construction in my eyes. They look like factory builds. Have to do something about that as well...

This does not bode well for the Deffkopta's. How am I going to make all of these look diferent enough to fit in????
Already orderd some Remora's to convert for this role... And I want to scratch build a few to.

My Killa kans are also slightly different so far. Mainly on the engines that are modified. Might need to put sone more work into these as well.... Oh well, I've got the next ones on the way, so no modifications on the ready ones will be nececary.

I have seen someone use half a yo-yo as a sort of hovercraft, piloted by a grot. can use as koptas or as bikes depending on if you put them on flying bases or not. I always wanted to do some of davincis work for grots (corkscrew helicopter, bicycle powered, balloons tied to back, etc). Also seen grots sitting on stormboy rockets like a rodeo.

The gunwaggon recieved some paint.
Now on with the next Grot tank. I also have an idea for a Killa kan/Grot tank/Deff dread scratch build.

But I could use some more idea's for my loota's..
Here's my list so far
Grot Loota posibles:

1 Clancking destroyers with heavy weapons. ( with grot controller ? )
2 Battletech protomechs
3 Alien like loader armor for grots. (scratch build ? )
4 Grot's with remote guns
5 ?

I'ts been a while sinds postting here.
Not much progress lately. but the mega Dread and the kill Bursta tank are getting allong nicely, and some idea's were hatched for a pair of new conversions.
A Sentinal armored cab is going to become either a death dread or an mega dread cockpit.
A killa kan body will become yet another Grot tank.. ( still get te get to the walking grot tanks...)

Thank you, and will do:

Build the body as regular, and forget the backplate witch mounts the engine.
Replace the bulges for the legs with some styrene tube, and make one for the hind legs.
Then extend the body to the rear and fit the tube for the hind legs.
Then lot's of bit's, legs and arms.

My plans are to build another one, I'll take some pics along the way...

Also I forgot KK number eight. Pics will follow soon as I now have a decent camera in reach again...

How did you get all of dem bitz! I'm loving them tanks - may have to steal a few ideas, hehehe :p


1. Go to FLGS on a 40K game night.
2. Announce to no one in particular "I have over 10,000 points of Space Marines".
3. Sit back and watch as some 30-ish Neckbeard who still lives with his parents not only disputes your claim, but goes on to describe his 30,000 points of Blood Angels and how he has been playing since Rogue Trader days... And yet you will have never seen him either play 40K or that army.
4. From here, you have several options. Continue the conversation, or just end it. Either way, I guarantee you will waste 1+ hour of your life talking to this guy. Have fun!
