Individual shots.

These guys are still wip. Somehow want to add 3 more to the line up. I only need these three to enter a competition but I would like to have the six finished for the end of the comp.

I am trying to make it look like they have denim waistcoats on, biker style. Got to do a bit more to the logo etc. And need to add more details to the bikes. Planning a gun mount on the handlebars for each and a shield mounted to the left of each rider like Zog has. Also tried to paint heat effect on the gun barrels and exhaust, not sure if its working.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment, good or bad,

PS BigMac dedicated to you Cormadepanda.

If I am looking at this correctly i believe those are regular boys standing. Or squatting. Or whatever orks do.

I am afraid they are huge. Got a bit carried away. I will try and put up some size comparison shots. The guys on board are nobz. For my army they are a perfect fit, but I feel they would be illegal for actual gaming.

The way I figure it is they are meant to be warbikes, Not your run of the mill hog for cruising. Huge thumping machines designed to carry a huge ork and the biggest gun he could get hold of, and his grot orderlies and his second gun and his other backup gun and his shield, and his pet squig, and be able to ram through a line of punny spacemarines, and keep going off into the sunset.

I know I am probably wrong mind you.

Ok had a think over night. I need to remodel these. They are far too tall. Not overly worried about the footprint of the model. The forgeworld nobz bike and many I have seen on here are extended front ends. The guns are ok, they are meant to be huge, they are dakka kannons after all.

My main issue is the guys are stood up on top, got to integrate them more into the model. Which means rethinking the forks and handlebars.

Any and all suggestions are welcome please. HELP.

Hi guys,

lets see if this is any better.

Ripped it to bits, then rebuilt.

Thanks go to Arakasi, and Wazzoo2000 for advice given.

They are still WIP, and (@ Wazzoo2000) got to try and work in some suspension on forks.

Comparison shots included, so yes they are blooming huge, but I think I like the size, just hope it wont be held against me.

Here you go.

I am loving your Orkyness :-)

The bikes are awesome and the crashed Deffkopta just looks brilliant.

I've just read through your thread and the marine being strafed by the DeffKopta is definitely being nicked for my Dakkajet base (if you don't mind).

Keep it up, I have abandoned my orks for a month whilst building a Daemon army but now you've inspired me to go back and get them finished.....well as much as a 40K army is ever finished.

@ Arakasi, Thanks yes I am happy. They still seem big but orkz is big. Hope I am forgiven for scale fubar.

@ nwns. Thank you, I am flattered, and please go for it, can't wait to see your version.

@ Selvaggio Saky. Thank you.

Ok now a little update, decided to try and nearly complete the one bike, to make sure its right. Still got a bit of touching up to do but this is basically end result, so please comment and let me know your thoughts.

Man Camherkhi sorry i havent been around! love the big mak. The rebuild went well for you in my opinion. Really made the bikes much more realistic. The drivers and weapons are fantastic. Zog however, has a minigun in the way of him chopping stuff... He must hold his axe to effect and just run them over. Great work! your scratches are inspiring.

Well, thank you guys, truly honoured.

@ Cormadepanda Thank you. Made a couple subtle alterations to try and allow him to swing at least.

@ Vik Thank you sir. Honored to have your attention. Agree completely about bigger is better MORE DAKKA.

@DiDDe Thank you and welcome. I am trying to improve all the time, some of the work you guys do is so amazing got to up my game.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

So here's an update. Actually done a bit more than the pics suggest, but trying to concentrate on working and not loitering on Dakka looking at all the cool work.

This is Zog just about there, just a couple washes and some tidying up to do. Only bit I am not happy with is the dirt on the wheels. Not sure what to do!!

Couple days and should have a all three to this stage at least.

Please give me your thoughts.

well i say, looks cool! and the rear wheel i think is perfect... the inner parts of the front wheel could get muddier for my taste...other than that... awesome progress!

Zogs alterations did him justice! he can indeed swing now. THe mud is top notch. Some people think less is more, i am a fan of a middle ground. Great paint! well done work.

Nice work on him. about the mud on the wheels then.
honestly, i don't think it looks that good with the mud on there at all.. considering he's driving in dry sand it wouldn't build up like that.
it would have been a totaly different thing if the sand was wet thouh ofc.

so here's what i think. eigther you remove the sand on the wheels and just drybrush the wheels as they are and that will make it looks like he's driving in sand.
or you could just repaint the sand darker to make it look more like wet sand.
