Grot Gunners and Dakkajet Weathering

Paint. Paint. Paint!

Sadly, only enough for the little grotty gunners 🙂

Finished up the grot big shoota gunner turrets and realized I’ve run out of Evil Sunz Red so the main painting of the bomma will have to wait until I have a chance to get to the hobby shop (hopefully tomorrow).


Not that I don’t have other things I can paint – wait, I do! Three dakkajets I started ages ago are sitting there waiting to be finished. I’ve reached a point where I’m individually detail painting each jet to make them unique. There are two rites of passage for any ork player worth his/her salt when it comes to modeling and painting. Rivets and checks.  I started the checks a while back but finished cleaning them up and did the base weathering tonight.

Cleaned up and ready for weathering.

Black sponged wear areas…

Metallics picked out out on wear edges…

An application of watered down Gryphone Sepia over the checks – the brownish wash looks better over the white than the black og Nuln Oil, which was washed over the rest of the plane.

While waiting for the washes to dry, I started the pilots for each plane – easier since they’ll be painted primarily the same. Pics to come when I’ve got more than three coats of green on them 😉

Later!

Incoming!!!!!

Well. just about everything in the house is packed and it’s all staged and ready for showing at any time. Let’s hope it sells sooner rather than later!

I was smart enough to leave myself something to do if I got a chance. Ten stormboyz and two mekboyz are all I’ve got to work on until either this house sells or someone buys the other house first and we all unpack. Took some time to start the skin and wrapped that up tonight. Nothing big but something to keep the Waaagh! growing in the meantime.

On the Big Mek Drawing Board

Took some time during lunch to sketch out and do a scale drawing of the bommer today.

I’ve blocked out the basics – enough so I can confidently start transferring it to some full size graphed paper and making patterns for the interior ribbing. I went back through both of pox’s threads on this beasts and have made a few technical decisions ahead of time. I’ve ordered a tabletop tripod (great idea pox) and I plan on making the wings removable for transport/storage. I have a plan…

Off to the hardware store for pvc pipe!
