Tag Archives: Ork Slaver
I’ve been on a bit of a break from active modeling/gaming lately as other aspects of my life become priorities. My wife is buying an advertising agency, we’re getting ready for a 50 hour trivia marathon (which we host a 20 person team from our house), and I’m planning a 32 man bar tournament – they’ve all pretty much kept me away from the bench. I kinda welcome the break to be honest. I’ve got about a dozen projects started know and it bothers me to have so many “open” at once.
Since I don’t know when, or how much time I’ll have available to me at any one moment, I decided to grab three miscellaneous models from my unpainted stock and figured I’d putter away at them piecemeal until they’re done. I’ve chosen two slavers and a Mekboy with a KMB. All models I will be fielding more often so figured I’d gettem up to par.
This won’t last for long though. after the trivia contest next week my meks work/paint shop will be relocating to it’s own room downstairs (finally!). My wife is taking over the office upstairs and I’ll be taking over the “rumpus/sewing” room. It’ll be nice to spread out again and have everything I need at easy reach without having to dig through multiple closets and various storage spaces hidden around the house. This will take about a week or two so the shop will be closed till I get everything in place in the new room. I can’t wait!
Ok, quick update – I’m not dead, just really busy.
Did manage in the last three weeks to wrap up the crew for the stock battlewagon and started the runtherder for the grot mob I did a while back. The runtherder is a really nice model with lots of detail and character, much like the rest of the new ork sculpts. Very well done GW. I’m doing him in small parts as to not go crazy trying to figure everything out at once. I’m also trying to practice a little with some NNM (non-metallics metal) and still have a long way to go.
I also need to paint the deff rolla before I can call the stock battlewagon completely finished. Again, not a huge rush as I’ve got very little hobby time at the moment.
Here’s the pics!
And the Battlewagon Crew
On to the details!
Got to work this weekend finishing up the details for the stock GW battlewagon, mainly the crew and also the Runtherder from the box set I finished a while ago. Got the skin and straps done – shirts and pants are next.
