The mini ambulance is looking great, I really like the weathering. What's left to work on?

Cheers . So theres a fair bit of finer detail stuff, tyres, rust, wires to detail and highlight, clothes to highlights and various other highlights, scratches glyphs and probably some freehand stuff but unsure as to what yetc. This is all I can think of without actually looking at the model

Painboy complete. Never really sure how to do wires on these kinda models. Time to complete his ride.

Thanks his ride is now (almost) finished. Got some white highlights to do but can't be bothered tonight.



Lighting kind of sucks I'll get some better ones this weekend.
Thanks for whoever posted the ambulance idea! This was really fun to put together. Now for the mekboy I think.

This is jawdropping. Could you post links of the car models used in the conversions and sizes (length and wide) of the buggies as i plan doing something similar in the future

So model wise it's hard to say as I just cruised eBay till I found ones that I thought I could work with. One is a majorette excaliber which are fairly easy to find.

http://www.diecastlovers.com/collectable/majorette-excalibur-ss-378/

Another was a chevrolet coupe model I found
http://www.modeltoycars.com/for_sale/pc/1939-Chevy-Coupe-Black-Motor-Max-73247AC-1-24-Scale-Diecast-Model-Toy-Car-p4838.htm

The others were just other cool model I found online. The best scales were 1/35 to 1/32. My original plan was to use model kits in this range such as revell or airfix but I found them to be more expensive than I wanted as the main bits I was after was the shells.

Ex ample storage of size would be 8cm width and 12cm length. Mine all vary in size they are bigger than the gw buggies but not as big as the trukk. Most are partly metal so can be a bit of a pain to work with.

My advise have a look on eBay for inspiration or if you got the cash look into airfix and revell stuff.

Managed to get 15 bikes on eBay for £20 so I don't mind the gak build they received from the seller. I should have filled in the gaps before but I guess I'll have to do that later. Bugger

Nice addition to the warband Once they're all done, you should put up an army shot, it should look pretty good.

3 more warbikers done. 5 more to go. However I got bored again and wanted to build so here goes bigmek on bike.

Idea is the generator at the back to show the custom forcefield.

Also here are all the bits I've amassed since I started thinking about this project.

Big mek is looking good. Think I'm happy just can't tell if something is missing. Feedback is always a gift.


Whole idea for below is its the generator for the force field. I wanted to add tesla coils but could not figure out how to make then on the small enough scale so I found found ikea fastings instead. Plan is the paint the wire to look like some lightning.


The idea for this was totally stolen from commissar kaine

Nicely done! I'd consider beefing up the arms a tad more: some cable, an armour plate,... Just to bring them in ljne with the rest of the model. Nice find on the ikea fastings

That's not actually a bad idea. I'm currently trying to finish painting the last of the bikes so I'll give that a go later this week. Thanks for the idea again.

So here goes. Finally finished all the warbikers, the extra nob iker and the big mek. Pretty happy but I'm blown out now with painting. I get tired painting big squads I'm dreading the 30 or 40 boys I'll do.
First up big mek. I loved the idea of armor plates but it just looked really odd.


Now group shots.

Storm boy still need heir bases painting



I'm really impressed with how the oval bases make the nobs look so much bigger than the warbikers. Next on the list is to build probably 3 trucks, 2 of which I have the base models for, finished gathering slash building bits for the Warboss. This one I'm apprehensive about as I've seen many others that I'm not keen on. Getting the proportions right will be a challenge. Also build at least 1 battlewagon.
Any feedback or ideas let me know. I'm pondering adding some snow to the bases as it looks ace on my dark eldar force.

Some spectacular group shots . And if the armour plates on the mechanical arms don't work out for you: they're your minis, not mine, do whatever you want

Does you bigmek's face bionics has its own exhaust pipe? I love that! Also I agree with Guildenstern, I really like the group shots you took too. Good luck painting all those squads.

Cheers. Been trying to find tracks and extra bits for my trucks but eBay is failing me at the moment. Instead I built some tankbustas from bits I had lying around. Yeah the big mek has the awesome head from the nob sprue works really well.

Finally had a crack at makig a trukk. Wanted to properly rivet so I've been waiting for the tubes to arrive. Love the ram on the battlewagon so figured I'd make one out of copper sheets. Also wanted a crack at fiddley stuff so made a crows nest for a grot. Overall pretty happy. Glueing the bigger wheels in place was a pain!

Some lovely work there drazaruk! The ram looks a tad big to me though; it may be the perspective?

Its a tad longer than the gw trukk probably about the size of a battlewagon but all gw stuff is wider than actual vehicles anyway.

Got bored of putting doing rivets so I built a huge harpoon for a grot to fire. I'll figure out what it counts as after I've built some wartrakk
