thanks for the offer, think I have a stash of khorne symbols somewhere

Tracks are just not fitted as I tend to spray the tanks red all over, and the tracks black, then assemble and add the remaining colours etc.

Ok so we're up to date on the Blood Pact, so for anyone wondering what happened to that Ork toy tank conversion:

Thanks guys!

I'm going to try and share slightly smaller pics from now on, I realise this forum doesn't scale the images and my thread looks awful on my phone.

Not sure how I missed this blog before- great stuff! I always enjoy finding another practitioner of 'toyhammer/modelhammer' and seeing how they use real-world kits and toys to make warhemmer vehicles; your conversions are terrific.

I absolutely love the Ork Kommanda in the turret hatch of the Skullhamma- you can tell he's trying as hard as he can to look all indifferent and contemptuous- just like and Imperial Commisar- but, being an Ork, being very uncomfortable doing so (against his better nature, as it were). He must have seen a picture somewhere, to emulate!

Keep up the very good work!

Been through the whole blog now- some great work! Using the M3 Half-tracks as your fleet vehicle to replace the standard Chimera hull was genius- I'm assuming 1/35 scale? Oftentimes these are too big (even at 1/48th) to mix with GW vehicles- but the uniform and standard way you've equipped them and employed them for every frame, from troop carrier to Deathstrike propulsion unit, makes it work. Nice chipping/weathering effects too- hard for me to do even with subdued colors, harder still, I think, with a bright red like you've used. But it works.

I look forward to seeing what's next.

Meer_Cat, thanks for the kind words, and yes I agree that's exactly what the Ork looks like.

The half tracks are 1/35, and so are bit long and thin, but take up roughly the same area as a Chimera, but rule of cool etc. GW seems to do 1/35 width with 1/48 length so its vehicles are a bit oddly proportioned, its the problem of bulky, out of proportion figures.

Graven, I am a machine, but this is catching up on 6 years of work

So here's my Gargant. It was bought on Ebay, and made by what I assume was a talented, but tool-lacking youngster. Construction was good, but not durable and ringbinder hole punch sized rivets were too big for me.







Removal of rivets begins




Armour plates get over covered with platicard sections, and smaller rivets are applied







Oh so many rivets! I also add some Gubbinz at the back, some walkways and a shoulder mounted observation platform, like the old epic version. I also convert the belly gun into a single barrled but bigger gun.





#




On the other shoulder I build a turret, like a battlewagon one, but a little bigger





I take a few moment to start batch building similar turrets for my MegaGargant



better pic of the observation area



Some extra Shootas



Painting begins




Painting done, except for the CC arms, which has since been completed, but no pics yet/

Love those last two Ork conversions, and the painting style on them. Really nice.

It reminded me of someting, and I couldn't place it for a bit, but I think it might be the Boarderlands video game and how they present buildings/vehciles. Could just imaging a tank like that rolling out.

Edit: I was writing this as the Gargant pics went up, that is awesome. Surpasses Boarderlands

Thanks, never really played Borderlands - wish I had more time for PC gaming these days, but heard good things about it.


In the meantime, here's some WIP pics of my Megagargant, which is only slightly more advanced than these pics, and is currently in my loft in a parked state.

That's all sorts of epic. When I first got back into the hobby I built a baneblade from foam core. Very satisfying, haven't done anything on that scale since.

ah yes, the old WD plans. IIRC the Armorcast Baneblade chassis I used above is scaled to those plans.

Ok switching to a modern project for a bit, I have a few 3d printers now, so I'm working on 2 of these. This one is imperial and built using some out of date stl files, hence needs some modelling to complete, and another for my 30k Traitor forces. Pics as they are now in the next few.

Alas, currently trying to reprint the carapace parts and they are proving to be a pain for the second one - print issues. I have a better printer on the way but it won't be up and running anytime soon as July is super busy for me.

Stop wasting time and get them done then!

I'm trying to get a load of old stuff done at the moment, but having some deadlines for the titans is putting those ahead, that and finding nice stls to print for my Blood Pact

in the meantime, lets have some more Orks! I present my Bonecruncha.

Ramshackle chassis, Puppetswar roller and some toys and plasticard.

I broke one whilst painting initially as I dropped the tank on a tiled floor, but other than that, no issues. Just luck so far I guess.

Ok, whilst I'm posting here's another 30k vehicle, still not 100% done as it needs decals and weathering powders.
