Thanks Camkierhi, your comment means a lot coming from someone which such a well established and packed blog. I'm only about a 3rd through the stuff I've done so far, so a far bit more to go.

Right now the holidays and my Christmas entries are out the way I'll carry on with the other entries.

Ork Indiana Jones - The Temple of Doom Bridge

The next entry was an Ork version of Indiana Jones for a competition topic of " The Relic"

I was aiming to make something similar to the scene below, the rope bridge over the river in the Temple of doom film, I remember the bridge took me about a week to make when I was away with work in a hotel, there was a lot of effort cutting all the wooden slats and wiring them together. then creating the rope handrail.

Love the start of the latest pastiche. I started at the bottom and scrolled up - when I saw that first pic I thought "Its Cr-ork-odile Dundee!"

The bridge looks fantastic already - and you're right, you did a great job on the hat. How did you find cutting down the paddlepop sticks? I had to trim about 200 of them to make some roofs for an old D&D project, and I was about ready to throw them all in the bin by the end of it - they don't make it easy for you.

The Alien. The Other. The Inconceivable. The Eldritch Abomination is a type of creature defined by its disregard for the natural laws of the universe as we understand them. They are grotesque mockeries of reality beyond comprehension whose disturbing otherness cannot be encompassed in any mortal tongue.

That Indiana Jones Ork was one of your best konvershuns, I think. You always did have a very creative mind when it came to those challenges.

I have seen your stuff around the forums and the gallery and I must say it's pretty darn awesome!
Your creativity just blows my mind.

The Indiana Jones project looks really promising.

Lol, I'll add him to the list of possible ideas

It wasn't to bad cutting the sticks to size (new blade on the knife and they went quite quickly) the real pain was I added a 2 notches into each end so I could wrap the wire around it otherwise the gaps were to big in-between the slats. Having to do 200 of them might make me recogniser that view

Cheers Zerg, glad you liked this one.

I do try to have fun Ezki, and making random things like this entertains me and keep me going with the hobby

My first try at OSL, which went ok I think, I tried to make it a dull glow from the stones rather than bright light, I tried to use a backdrop of the area that the bridge scene was filmed took me hours to research since I couldn't find photos of exact location. Photos are also a bit odd since its quite odd since I found it hard to photo graph something long and thin but still get the detail (no comment). Just used some very old goblins to represent the warriors closing in on Indy Ork. Plan is to put the bridge into some scenic cliffs at some point.

Cheers Cam, yeah there are some very talented people who enter those comps but still friendly and good fun all the same, I'd recommend having a go at at least 1 to anyone.
Latest challenge if anyone is interested

Thank you Syro and CB, the Christmas dioramas are a tradition now I hope to keep up

Next up we have
[b]Ork Captain Baseball Bat Boy[/b]

To explain, the theme was "Everyday Hero". I did some research into odd super hero's that didn't quite make it (ones like Squirrel Girl, Arm fall off boy or Matter-Eater Lad) but none of them jumped out at me as something I could do or people would recognise. When I was younger I remembered a Super Hero that was a bit tongue in cheek from the Max Payne video games - Captain Baseball Bat Boy

Wiki
http://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Captain_BaseBallBat-Boy

The Baseball cap is Greenstuff and I found it quite hard to replicate, the Cape is from a greenstuff press mold and the Base bat itself is a piece of Spure I filled down (I used a small file and a drill to create a mini lathe) I also put the Ork in the famous Babe Ruth "called Shot" pose point to the bleachers (and also the Sandlot Kids was a favourite movie of mine growing up). So while this seems like a simple model there is actually a lot of research and pop culture references in this entry.

Everyday Hero - May 2016
