Over the river, through the woods

howdy.

first off, i don't capitalize much of anything. years and years of using auto-capitalization in MS Word has left me adverse to using the shift key. deal with it.

secondly, i have never had a blog before. seems kind of like a diary, and i never kept one; it also seems like a bit of showing off, and that's not my style, either. maybe it's just that i see stuff on here everyday that makes me feel like a talentless hack.

hopefully, this will be a growing process.

let's get started.

why orks? cheap and easy to convert. easy to scratch-build vehicles. not that budget seems to big a big deal anymore...when i started collecting 40K minis, i was in college. now i have disposable income...little plastic men is what i dispose a good bit of it on.

hoping to earn a place in the League of Extraordinary Riveters...

edit 12/22/13: just to make it known, i don't care if you necro this thread in the slightest. had a little tiff with a dakka user for necro-ing another thread, even though by his own admission, you can't really necro P&M threads due to their WIP nature...feel free to necro away. if i wanted the thread closed, i would ask a mod to close it.

specifically, things are hectic around here with the holidays, although i should have most of xmas day and new years day to myself to do some work on...something. may work on the plane some more...it's detail work now, as i've got a good enough base of go-fasta red on it now...

Over the river, through the woods

tonight i will post pics of my current WIP, now that my terrain piece for Skalk Bloodaxe's Junk PIle contest has been put to rest.

as a teaser (until i can get the WIP pics up tonight), this is the base for my ork flyer conversion:



WIP of what i have done so far...zoomable pics in my gallery.













i like the idea of hex-head bolts instead of rivets when it comes to ork construction. may even do a bolt up through the hex, making them nuts on a bolt (a la luciusletroll's work), but maybe--probably--not.

i used testor's model putty to make weld lines around the jet nozzles...i like some of the methods other people have used with green stuff, but it doesn't look as sloppy as i would imagine ork welding would be.

i have exhaust pipes from a bomma kit i got on ebay that i will be using...also some kind of armature for the rudder. teeth for the intake. paint job, and details (ace kill markings, pilot name, plane name, etc)

of course, it needs MOAR DAKKA...that's in the works, as well.

codex: orks says that a bomma has tail-mounted twin-linked guns...don't know how to go about that (especially if i want to make the flyer playable as both fighta and bomma). would like a dome (think belly gun on a b-17), but the plane is too small, width-wise, through the tail to make that feasible.

@bangbangboom--wallpaper is still there. just got a better image shooting with a door in the background instead.
i welcome thread stalkers as well as thread participants...

took a small break from the plane this evening, and came up with something i like to think of as a combat shotgun for orks.




taking on the fearless demon overlord Leroy Jenkins with his new shoota...



i did also work on the plane (need to get it done so i can work on the battlewagon idea i have rolling around my mind, as well as possibly working on a gun emplacement for a contest that may or may not be wrapping up soon). added wing dakka as well as covers for retractable landing gear. i like the look of the plane, but did not like the non-retractable landing gear that should be on the plane...also didn't want to model NEW landing gear...this is my nod to realism--theoretically, it could happen. it is 38,000 years in the future, after all...anything is possible.



as always, zoomable images in my gallery.

well, as you may have noticed, things have slowed down quite a bit, thanks to IRL stuff. did manage to find a paint color i liked to airbrush the plane, but i haven't done any detail work on it yet...was thinking about naming the plane (someting along the lines of an orky version of "memphis belle")...

kind of anxious to get the plane done, as i want to start my gargant and/or battlewagon...as a newly-inducted member of LoER, i feel it's my duty to rivet something.

also wondering if i should make the baneblade i got on ebay a looted vehicle or not...especially as i have exactly 1 IG soldier.

happy holidays to everyone!

sorry it has been so long (not that anyone cares). i am now an uncle. which is kind of a big deal for me, as i think everyone in my family expected me to have kids first.

i live in an old house near the water, and it's been too cold/damp in my workroom to really get anything done...even if i had had time to do anything, which i really haven't.

finished second in my category in skalk bloodaxe's junk pile contest...not too shabby for my first whack at a contest, and i'll keep my gripes about not winning to myself.

the league of extraordinary riveters has a new contest going on:

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/570324.page

you should check it out.

hope everyone had a good holiday season.

it's been kind of hectic--my girlfriend and i are about to buy a house and move in together, and my work schedule has been brutal--55+ hours a week.
got a new airbrush for christmas, so hopefully i will be able to figure out how to get it to paint extremely fine lines--the only reason i wanted it, as all my other airbrushes are no good at fine (on 40k orks, for example) details...

not that anyone has been waiting with bated breath for me to update this thing.

Well done. It looks Orky and fantastic so far! I think it could use a bit more dakka or bombs further out on the wings. It looks a bit too empty there and you know, if there is room for any kind of weapon on an ork construction... it will be there.

i know it's been forever and a day. lots of issues IRL. haven't had a lot of time for 40k (or any of my hobbies, truly).

i seem to have a bad habit of buying stuff that i *want* to use for (ork) conversions, and then never get around to making time to do anything about it.

did some paint work on the plane (pics uploaded later tonight, maybe). also started working on painting a squad of commandos, as i was going through my stuff trying to organize it and found a metal Snikrot and a commando Nob...pics of that as well up'ed tonight if i get a chance.

was really hoping to compete in the wall/s fences LoER competition, and made a start at it, but i got sick, my computer died, yada yada yada...may post pics of what i have done with that also this evening.

a friendly hint: trying to glue together aquarium rocks to make a rock wall doesn't work out so hot. at least how *i* tried to do it.

I know the feeling I've just had a baby and had to pack up 4 80l storage tubs with all my "if I buy this I can make this" crap that I had scattered around the house.

My blog has pretty much died maybe being updated only once or twice in the last year or so. But I have kept my immediate projects to hand and I still have another week left of paternity so there's a small chance I may get to have another crack at it in the next few days.

Keep the hope alive!

Over the river, through the woods

well, as promised, here's the photo drop. spoiler'd to avoid huge chunks of laggy load B.S.

progress on the plane has been minor. base metals where they (mostly) go, and big lightning bolt icon based in yellow (holy crap, yellow is hard to paint on a big surface by hand):

Spoiler:


progress on the red skull kommandos. more of a test-drive for how i want to do ork skin, and to get *something* at least partially painted.

Spoiler:
love this sniper rifle...


here's my epic fail at trying to make rock walls out of real rocks:

Spoiler:
really, it's not bad for random cover or a seriously eroded wall, and with a little work, it could look quite nice--flock and some kind of base might help. but i was trying to make sturdy, quasi-uniform rock walls, and after 2 days in the mold i had made and white glue *still* hadn't dried, i gave it up as at least a partial fail.

my not-finished entry for Monkeytroll's LoER "Fences" Terrain Competition:

Spoiler:
was going to have a dead guy in the pipe's cutout.


and after i spent a good bit of money on basing supplies, i found these at dollar tree:
Spoiler:


i want to finish *something* before i start on another project, but i don't feel like working on the plane or the kommandos. still have ideas running through my head for battlewagons and at least one gargant. oh, well. no more time for tonight.

thanks for taking a look.

that may be so, but i have at least 4 totes (80L or bigger) full of "stuff", not including the 2 totes for all my " actual little plastic men" stuff...i need to stop collecting and *DO* something with it. as for the hot glue gun--i didn't want to have big globs of glue visible. was trying to do it fast, as i didn't want to paint it. didn't see a way to do things quickly and have them turn out the way i wanted them--the only thing i could envision was little drops of hot glue for each little rock, and said " that."

So much to comment on.

That Orky sniper rifle is fantastic! I love the Marine shoulder pads too, takes me back to some of the first Orks I ever made. I gave my special weapon guys looted Devastator pads, cuz if ya wanna be the shootiest, ya gotta look like da shootiest.

The rock walls look pretty good to me. I can definitely see how you wouldn't want to hot glue each one individually, but I think it would pay off in the end. The stack of pallets also looks great, nice work on that one.

And that Dakkajet… Great conversion work, but I can't look at it without picturing this:

i was big into model planes when i was a kid...i never built a gee bee, but i always thought it was a cool looking plane. there was one in "the rocketeer" movie (the yellow and black super gee bee, actually), and i also loved that movie as a kid. i thought it would make a pretty gnarly ork plane...and i didn't want to spend what they were asking for a GW model.

Also, those rocks are great.I'm building a stone fort from HK's bricks and reap rock/bark so I may steal that.
feel free. i would suggest you do not water the PVA (white glue) to make it runnier. the first mold i made for the rock wall wasn't watertight, so when i came back an hour after pouring watered down glue into the mold full of rocks, i found a puddle of watery glue on my work table. i have been thinking that wood glue might work better, as it dries a yellowy-tan color which would work better color-scheme-wise with the rocks (at least the ones i want to use). i don't know how PVA/white glue racts to heat, but i know wood glue sets up faster with heat, so i might try again with my molds, wood glue, and a space heater.

Best part is "Cam wuz here."
--Cam seems to have a fantastic amount of free time, and what he does with it amazes me. i work 6 days a week, 10 hours a day, so i don't have much "down" time...it's nice to see someone with skill, a sense of humor, and an obvious passion do something with it (the way i would *like* to...)

sniper rifle--kommandos are supposed to be sneaky, in a way...figured they should have at least a nod towards a sneaky weapon.

shoulder pads--i always thought SM pads made fantastic ork trophies...and because i seem to have about 1000 of them in my bitz box, it was a no-brainer. i wanted to make sure all the red skull kommandos had the "red skull" part...but all of them having helmets seemed pretty repetitive. i also plan on painting at least one of the kommandos with paint on his skull...because orks are literal in the extreme, IMHO.

rock wall--i like them. just wish they had been what i wanted them to be, instead of a happy mistake.

pallets--i work around pallets quite a bit, so they are often in my head. they are quick, cheap, and easy to make. starbucks has thin wooden stirrers, and i grabbed two handfuls of them the last time i went to buy my girlfriend her iced coffee... they aren't perfectly to scale, but i think it's funny to imagine that 39,000 years in the future, people still put stuff on pallets.

i haven't seen that movie (one of the joys of not having kids, i guess), but i see what you mean.

thanks everyone for looking and especially for the feedback.

LOL, I know the feeling. Recent advancements in pallet technology have been less than stellar performance-wise, so I guess if it ain't broke, even after 39,000 years, don't fix it. I mean, plastic ones go on trailers real nice, but not so much when it comes to storing stuff in racks.
