OK, back in the saddle again…

Finished up the Apoc models I was working on, wrapping up the paintjob on the second Pulsa Rokkit. Nice to have them finished.

Too big to fit all of them on my workbench at the same time so took over the kitchen table for a group shot. Fun to use a warboss as a Barry for the shot, to give you a sense of scale.

Over the Thanksgiving holidays I’ll be bringing the good work camera home and settin up another {Year’s End) shot of the entire (painted) Waaagh! and I’ll post’em of course.

Now I need to see if I feel like painting (finishing up some models) or building new things (more Stormboys of Killer Kans).

Later!

Paintin’em Red of Course…

An hour of masking and about 30 min. of spray painting some of the base colors. From here it’s metals, some checks/dags and chipped paint, then wash, seal and base. Hope I can get it done in time!

Back on the Squig

Well, getting back on the squig after three weeks off. For those who care, this is where I went…

Trip to Seattle and Alaska Cruise

I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Back to the real reason everyone is here, orks and pictures!

Spent a little time last night putting the rivets on the 1st pulsa and primed the starter base making it officially completing the construction phase. The base still needs the groundwork finished and I need to pick up a tub of joint compound for both crash bases, just didn’t get around to it today.

They are a bit reminiscent of a Chris Foss or Syd Mead spacecraft at the moment Wouldn’t have anything to do with me collecting thier art for almost 30 years and subliminal impressionism, hmm?

Need to do the detailing like armor patches, straps for the engines and a couple of fuel/wiring lines and off to next pulsa!

Ransacking the Bitz Bin!

by on August, 20, 2010 in Apocalypse, Pulsa Rokkit - Comments Off on Ransacking the Bitz Bin!

Spent a couple hours sifting through my bitz boxes and bins and pulled a bunch of interesting stuff out for consideration. I think I’ve got Fat Boy pretty much figured out Rokkit-wise, I’ll work on the launchpad after I get the rokkit finished. Here’s the basic parts layout and I’ve started with the detailing and assembly…

It’s almost like an Eye Spy game . Lets try to figure out what parts are what – or Find the…

There will be a test!

Apocalypse Blitz Part Two

by on August, 18, 2010 in Apocalypse, Pulsa Rokkit, Skullhammer Tank - Comments Off on Apocalypse Blitz Part Two

Started my second set up Apocalypse units tonight – two pulsa rokkits. I’m far enough along and have enough paint on the skullhammas that I won’t be embarrassed to deploy them as is if I don’t finish painting the details before Oct. 2nd. I’m more concerned about having enough time to finish the construction and base painting on these next two units before then so off I went.

My trusty furred assistants Punchy (at left) and Rowdy (hidden at right, he’s hard to see when he’s hiding!) are checking out the base model I’m using for my pulsas.

Pulsas

The booster rockets will be both parts of on I’ll be calling “Sneeky Git” and the main fule tank will be named “Fat Bob”. Here’s the base pieces with a burna Barry boy.

I got some masonite (thanks Chris!) and cut out some appropriate sized bases for the models and glued the main pieces together. I’m using a heavy duty piece of cardboard tubing of the same diameter of the big fuel tank for the “shot” version since I don’t need to worry about a pointed noise on it.

I’ve got the “after firing” pieces cut and hot glued down to the bases and a hut made for Sneeky Git. Here’s a Barry shot and a Skullhamma shot for scale.

Thanks all for tonight, we’ll see where I get tomorrow. I expect the progress on these to go rather quickly as they’re not as detailed or busy as the skullhammas were.
