Will there be lots of grots all over the thing when it's ready? Please say yes.


Yes.

In every nook and cranny. I have a full set of forgeworld grot riggers and a full crew from a mek gun to go on there and some ORK gunners and maybe a mek too. With my stompa I had the back of the thing crawling with grotz so it looked like it was having to foxed as it went along. I want this the same but with all the inlaid detail they may be be more in it than all over it.

Might get to building some crew tomorrow.

For now, the first coat of the hulls green is on. Next I want to darken it down in places, probably with thinned black templar maybe with green mixed in, see how dark it goes. But that’s for tomorrow.

The skull in the belly will be white I think, but can’t decide in the “teeth” on the hull up by the head. I am thinking red like the head, but open to ideas. Also the belly gun, can’t decide if green but with checks and things, or black, or red? Or just metal?

Thanks, it’s going to take a while, but you guys are helping keep me focussed. Don’t do many blogs, but this one is really helping me. It’s such a daunting model. It’s huge!

More tonal variation to the green, I am not a huge fan of airbrushes but for big models like this they are the best tool for the job, stops them looking like 1 slab of colour.

it’s looking even more amazing now the painting has commenced. As for the head teef, I reckon black would be cool and checks for the belly gun sounds awesome

I have just noticed there is a flame pattern on the belly gun so going black with flames in red or yellow. Going to paint the teeth today and the belly gun tonight. Will try out black on the teeth.

So, finally got round to getting the base colours where I am happy with them.

For the metallics I have used a mournfang brown base, Vallejo metal colour burnt iron (amazing paints, new to me but blown my mind with their goodness) then washed over really thinned down mournfang. They will be weathered as well. Only got to wash the head and big power plant at the back. Wanted the recesses to be really grimey, so they get extra treatment before oil washes and pigments for the fresh grime.

Happy with the red, more highlights will be done via chipping.

The white is really clean, for now, but pleased with it. It’s going to get some markings on it, tribal type stuff before being weathered.

Wish I had done the arms at the same time but I am getting better at airbrushing so it won’t take long to catch up. Feet will be metal as above and lots of dirt.

Sorry to those who have followed it’s a bit feast or famine at the minute but so is my spare time.

More work on the power plant. Love this bit of the model. It’s a salvaged imperial train type thing bolted onto the back of the gargant. Very clever. Bit more work to do on the icon on the back but happy with it so far. Used a bit of hair spray technique on the chipped paint.

Started on the engine, now going to move round adding the details, then will come some chipping, not too heavy, I want thing to look looked after. The narrative is that its the warlords pride and joy and his homage to the gods so it will have an army of me,s, spanner’s and riggers who maintain it. Once I have done chipping it will get a coat of gloss varnish then the oils will come out.

It's definitely looking less like an MDF kit the more the paint goes on, which is cool.

And the Boyz have come out nicely, too.

Welcome aboard. It’s not a roller coaster ride, but slower but making progress. Thanks for looking in.

Cheers. That’s my goal really, have it so it doesn’t look like a wooden kit. Daunted by how big the bloody thing is though. Was nice to throw paint on the little guys for a change.

Took a break from the big guy, dauntingly huge model, did get these guys painted, a 50PL Beastsnaggas themed force to add to my waargh. Good fun and go my mojo back, played about with oils and lights and volumes. Good fun.

But back to the big guy, progress is a going on.

- Added a rough dry brush to add definition to the green.
- Gloss varnish applied all over.
- Decals applied. Wanted it to look a bit like those building it had marked it and added glyphs as they went along, haphazard and a bit like graffiti but respectful. Things a big idol so as ORKS come to pay respect, or as they made it they added their marks.
- and lastly I have glues the arms in place and the feet on.

So, still to do in order of them needing doing.

- chipping, with a sponge and touched up to make interesting.

- general oil wash….
[Black and green for body]
[Black and burnt umber for the metallics]
[Magenta don burnt umber for the reds]
—-Applied and rubbed off for effect.—-

- grime and weathering….
[oil paints applied neat and streaked etc]
[dark inks airbrushed into grimey areas to effect]

- energy effects on the big gun and gaze of gork/mork.

Finished!!

This is my main inspiration for the look I want, maybe a bit darker. But it has a furnace glowing in its middle so the eyes doing the same fits well.

The snaggas were fun to paint. Using oil paints to highlight is an absolute joy, don’t think I will paint ORKS any other way now, blending is so simple. Learnt so much from the first ones to the last and improved a lot.

Thanks. There are nice touches all over the model, loads of detail, didn’t want to paint the symbol exactly like the admech one, cos they are ORKS. But still wanted it to be clearly a nod to admech.

Will post pics later. Did a lot last night but it hasn’t shaded as much as I wanted but has given it a grimey look, still a lot to do. So bloody messy on a model that size.
