That looks great Cam, but I think you need something on that big black area behind the rokkits. Maybe some orkish graffiti or scrawled instructions?

Thanks Gits. Will be working on that bit soon.

Small update....

So first up ammo feed.

Took a square tube and cut it at an angle.


Added some rod sanded to a point for ammo, and some detailing, and....


Will get these painted up and stuck on tomoorow now.

Next...Gun controls.

I thought I would go remote on this.


Still very WIP...


And approx. where he will be.


Final resting place....


And added some small detail, shrooms and grubs.


As always thoughts, C&C welcome.

No C&C, just amazement. Although seeing the poor boy sleeping under the stairs reminded of that chapter from "The Count of Monte Cristo"

Wouldn't an orc remote be a goblin or snotling on a long stick?

That's fantastic!! Only suggestion is maybe a bit of dark wash around the base of the lights to make them pop as much as the rest.

I've seen Ivy done by taking yarn and applying flock to it. here is the image link http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i287/TheBugKing/Warcast%20Studios/DSC01869_zps63f568bd.jpg

There are also those little seed pods-- Birch pod seeds-- that look just like leaves, But gluing them individually in place...hey, it would be a bit like riveting,come to think of it

Grafitti. needs some grafitti on the exterior, but I'm guessing you've already thought of that

And of course, looking specctacular

Lots of nice work Cam.

I was going to say the Birch seed pods. Something, I've looked into for future use.
Turns out, the best time to collect them is in August, which isn't much help in April... I suspect someone will sell you some on that internet thing.

I've seen people use etched brass leaves too. But I don't know where they come from.

The etched brass leaves came in a Warhammer basing set, but Woodland Scenics and JTT make all sorts of little leafy bits that would work. I bought a bunch of JTT railroad plants for my Bag End if I ever finish it. If nothing else, flocking would work well.

Not where I should be

Update-ish.

Thank you Red, DrH and Dave, knew I could rely in you guys.

Thanks for the comments. Always welcome, and welcome Archer and thank you.

In answer to you, immediately still busy on this orky base, got a couple bits to try and sort, and a few questions for you wonderful people, but first.

I bought some leaves, from the only UK one I could quickly find, did not look very hard, probably should have looked harder.




Now please do not get me wrong here, the product is quite nice, and the seller was nice and quick and very happy with the service, the only problem I have is quantity, this little box with what looks like maybe 100 leaves in cost £4.99 (approx. $7.50 for you guys out in the colonies.) Thats 5p a leaf?!! Geez. I was kind of hoping for a few more for my money, wanted a nice bushy ivy, looks like its winter now and this lot will maybe litter the floor for effect. (I kniow IVY is evergreen and does not shed but hey....) So plan B, I am trying different avenues for the leefy clumps I am after.

Been mainly working on LT's prize for the last Competition, (on other Orky blog.) but have been mucking about a bit with some stuff, here's what is on the bench.


The plan is a burger in one hand, pint in other. Table with Binoculars adn a sniper rifle proped up beside him on the roof with an umberella/parasol.

Ok question time, been racking my brains a bit for what this is, is it a HQ, a yuff hostel, or what? Reasoning is I want to put up a sign or two. Definately going to be one with the offer "Baff and a Burger 5 Teff! " Does that make it a Bar? And next is Graffittttiiiii , ok thinking " Waaagh!!" in big bold letters across the big wall, but it's a bit boring.

So gentlepeeps, your thoughts and comment's and criteque, would very much be appreciated at this time.

Thanks for looking.

Oh and coming soon I have 2 commisions, one is another old car, the other an ork scenery/terrain piece, so look out it could all go horribly wrong.

Ouch, those better have been individually polished on a beautiful woman's bosom at that price. They are actually harder to find on the internet then I expected.
Look nice, but I'll wait until August and then go hunting Birch (already been on a reconnaissance mission to see if I could find a tree or two ).

Deckchair Ork looks good. Nice idea (so many good ideas in one model).

As for what it is: It doesn't scream HQ to me. More of a rest stop/waypoint/forward barracks sort of thing.

Good luck with the commissions. Nice.

Another option for the leaves is to use one of those hole punches that scrapbookers use. I've seen clover leaf punches and some sort of other leaf, both of which may scale well enough. If you have a local Craft's Store (like a Michaels or Joanns or Hobby Lobby here in the US they might have it.) 75# or 110# cardstock qith paint on it is surprisingly durable for things like this.

Plusmodel stuff is always excellent quality, but yeah, expensive. It's a specialty firm out of the Czech Republic catering to 1/35 diorama enthusiasts. The Birch seed thing is fantastic, unfortunately, there are not a lot of Birch trees around my area either. Some enterprising person should collect those, preserve them, and sell them You're thinking that you want a broad leaf for ivy right? Probably want it very bright, waxy green as well?
