I was recently guilty of watching mad max and love the 30's and 40's era cars they had used.
Naturally this led me to want to build such things so why not orks. In progress 2 warbuggies and 1 nob on bike.
Photos aren't great but I shall do more later







Automatically Appended Next Post:
Better quality photos. I'm also pondering colour scheme any help would be awesome
Red one jobs- add details to front wheels, paint, small details
Black jobs- add fuel lines, paint, details. Details to front wheels. No tread is no beuno
Biker nob needs something but not sure what.

Cheers.
Apparently buying the right scale and right model of car is a challenge. A bit stuck right now as I'm waiting for a mass of wheels and plasticard to arrive. However more work in progress stuff. I'll probably do more dark elder stuff for a few days

Next one to be broken down to bits

Also more progress.


Any ideas for good models for the drivers?

Do you think you could model one grot sitting on the shoulders of another to reach the steering wheel? I think I may be easier to fit them in than an ork driver, but I don't know for sure.

That's a killer idea. Time to find some grots

ha! great idea, and one that I feared I'd want to do when watching Fury Road the other day.

Tell me you've got a Goff Rocker to stick on the front of an amplifier laden Battlewagon?!

Take a look at what I've been painting and modelling: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/725222.page

Great start and some clever converting, what scale cars you using for this then 1/43 or 1/32 ?

I need to get a Goff rocker!

It's taken ages to cruise eBay to find them. They are between 1/32 and1/35. I got one 1/43 but it was way too small.

Long time with no update. Basically I couldn't figure out how to best to paint rust I finally did so started painting and more building.

Slowly getting through these.



I also got more biker nobs made. The goal is mob of 5, 2 more for the warbiker squads 1 mekboy and 1 pain boy.










Currently out of some major parts, guns, bodies etc so more I'll come when so figure out what parts I want to get.

Looking nice! Have you considered adding rust last with weathering powders?

I gave powders a go but always found them a pain to work with. The new stuff gw released is pretty good, that's what is on the painted buggies

Nice work loving the bike conversions especially the one using Lego wheels at the back, I imagine bending the plastic tube was a pain mind.

The cars have come together got that racer rod vibe to them, love the shooters on the side of the cab that’s very orkish

Hey what happens to the 1/43 car you got and didn’t use ? Was it a plastic kit ?

So the 1/43 car and a couple of other that were too small, the hit and miss of eBay buying, are diecast. However they are still cool so I'm currently pondering an idea of a bunch of grots driving it to be another buggy.

Bending the tubing isn't too bad, sharp bends I do using a candle and more curved ones hot water. Bend until happy then plunge in cold water. Took me a while, a few attempts and some burns before I got it somewhat how I wanted mind.

Duly noted . I love how you aged your models, really makes them come alive!

Love the work so far. Orks fall into the MadMax universe so well. Great conversions. It’s gonna be a great looking army on the table. But if your like me my orks get more shelf time than table time.

I agree orks need some weathering. You're doing great, love dropping in here!

Cheers. I'm hoping to keep on this project for a while. One more is done.


One thing that's frustrating me at the moment is doing heat scarring on the gun barrels and exhausts. It's a mix of yellow purple and blue washes however I'm struggling to get it how I want so it's still trial and error.

And damn getting the drivers in place is to fiddlely

Starting on the next one. Basic bodywork painted before weathering.


After weathering. All the needs doing for the bodywork is fresh paint chips.

This is quickly turning into one of my favourite threads for ork verhicles . Excellent on the weathering, it really brings the model to life.
