Thanks ckig!

Here's some more shots of my new WIP stormboyz unit. I've dubbed them Da Skullboyz. Let's see if y'all can figure out why...


Right now I'm working on converting Grukk into Waaazag da Kan't Stoppable. First thing I started with was the gun. Waaazag is traditionally armed with a kombi-skorcha. And Grukk is armed with a kombi-rokkit. So starting with this base:


I trimmed away the superfluous bits:


And cleaned it up a bit:


Then did a mock up:


Which I decided I didn't really like. Then I thought about Waaazag's traditional armor: the Mega Variety and tried to envision what that would look like:


Ultimately deciding that I would need to build the hand and armor totally from scratch I set out to carve the hand from the gun:


And then thinking, "You know, this looks like a really awesome slugga. I think I'll save this for a subordinate Warboss's build."


And that's as far as I got with the gun last night.

Now, moving on to the face/head. Grukk's over sized tooth is just ugly and silly looking in my opinion, so I endeavored the shave it down to more reasonable proportions:


My Warband's icon is this:


Because Waaazag has fangs:


I got the teef from the boots of a stormboy. Worked out pretty well, I think. Thoughts?

Yeah, that's the first goal. Once that's done I need to make a Zagstruk conversion and then another 90 stormboyz for the Vulcha Skwadron from the Waaagh! Ghazghkull supplement. 181 stormboyz is my ultimate goal. I can even fit that in a 2000 point Unbound army.

Did some work on one of my scratch built battlewagons.
I'll start with loads of shots of my side armor plates:








And then working on the top platform:




Making bullet holes with an exacto and file:





Distressing a support beam:








That structural beam in "action":


Building the structure for the front turrets:


After trying to figure out how I would make traversible turrets for my forward big shootas, I settled on using the old GW tires as the basis. I cut out the inner hub to begin with:




Lined up on the base:


I started also doing work on the rear hatch by heavily modifying some old rhino hulls. I don't know what brand of glue I was using 20 years ago, but it sure was strong. I had to use a saw to hack off this plate because it wouldn't pop off like I expected it to:


Anyway, I'll have more pictures to show soon. C&C always welcome. Thanks for looking.

Nice job on the battle wagon so far, it feels so orky. Honestly its making me kinda want to start an ork army just for the conversions for vehicles.

Many thanks, Ustrello!

So here is the main body of the turrets:




Then I take one of these barrels and saw off the end caps, using the detail rings as my miter-guide:



And then because I have no in-progress shots of the turret's construction I have to just show off the end product. The scratch-built gun is pinned to the middle barrel hoop which is slid over the white post. Then I glue the post ends into their respective housings and leave the barrel loop loose so that it traverses 360 degrees:





The middle turret is notched at the back because there's an elbow of plastic adjoining the back of the front alcove to the top of same:





Let me draw everyone's attention back to this picture:


Because I painted it black and glued one of the finished turrets onto it before I remembered to take in-progress shots of what I was doing:



I also built a notched side plate to arrest the traverse of the turret:






And here we see a vision of what the front three turrets will be like once they're all in place:








Here's a progression of shots showcasing the work on the right side hull armor:





And then less photos showcasing the same sort of evolution for the left side armor:



I get pretty caught up while building and often forget to to pause to take photos.

The front hull got some love, too:




The opposite side needed a lot of filing so the sheets of styrene will fit:





And that, frankly, is as far as I've gotten on this project so far. Thanks for looking. C&C always welcome!

So, always switching gears, I started building some boys. The assembly line:



There's still tons yet to do:


Here, the last few boys left in my second mob of stormboys (to bring them up to 30):


And here the beginning of a new (3rd) mob of stormboys (who will eventually become 30 strong):


Despite the fact that, between stormboys, nobs, and regular boys I still have 230+ potential orks to make, I am actually starting to feel nervous that I'm running out of orks to build.... Madness, I know.

Thanks for looking and have an awesome day!

I was reading through this blog and there are tons of interesting and original conversions on here. I like the mixing in of the third party bitz. I've recently discovered Spellcrow and made some Tankbustas that you can see in my blog in the signature. There is a ton of character and flavor in these pages of yours and you should be proud. Definitely lookin' good!

But I have to ask if you ever intend to paint these guys.
I've never seen someone with literally hundreds upon hundreds of un-painted models! How will you ever make a dent in that backlog without falling into despair?!

Keep up the good work. I hope to see some paint on this page soon! You'll have an amazing army for sure.

Funny you should mention that, The Riddle of Steel, as I've started priming and painting just this past week or so. I've finished painting all of one tankbusta, but have base coated 14 others. Thanks for the positive feedback and I hope to have pictures up soon of the paint progress I'm making. Despair not! These hordes shall know paint!

Nice alternate wheels. Where did they come from?

Not sure on double wheels at the front though. Trucks usually double up for traction on the driven wheels, I believe. The front wheels not being driven and being required to steer are usually singular. Feel free to disagree though, just a thought.

Yeah, I don't care about realism, that's why I play Orks. I got the wheels from a WW2 toy halftrack of some kind that I bought at a DDay airshow in Reading, Pennsylvania.
