Back To Work With A Vengeance.

Unfortunately, I actually mean WORK rather than hobby time.

As a result I've hardly been home for the last month and, apart from this weekend, I'm not looking forward to some more for a couple of weeks.

What have I managed to achieve?

Some headway on the latest batch of Blood Axes.

Some construction and undercoating of some more Primaris, courtesy of  couple of copies of issue 1 of Warhammer:Conquest.  To give some variety to these easy build Marines, I resorted to some eBay bits purchases of arms and bolt rifles to add variety.

More as and when I'm actually available to enjoy myself.

Finally, Some Hobby Time

I haven't posted for a while due to some short noticed, extended family issues that had the potential (and still do) to be an unholy fusion of the worst Jeremy Kyle and Judge Rinder episodes.

Finally though, I have successfully reached the eye of the storm and have had an opportunity to throw together some Genestealer Cultists and to finish off my latest Blood Axe Boyz.

I've used the models from my two Kill Team boxes to construct a 20 strong Neophyte unit.

Also for Kill Team/ 40K, my latest Blood Axe Mob.

Inspired by Imperial uniformity, these Blood Axes are equipped with the same type of Shoota.

More as and when I can....

Orkifying The Super Heavy Pt 5 (plus some Praetorians)

That's the Blood Axe Baneblade complete with the addition of a forward Grot spotter.

Finally, some actual Praetorians.  This team will be the last of the four squads attached to the Stormlord.  They have been based and are ready to go.  All I'm waiting for now is a break in the rain that seems to have started this morning.

Orkifying The Super Heavy Pt 4

Boltgun Metal (Leadbelcher in new money) for the weapons along with blue for the glyphs and hey ho, Looted Super Heavy is complete.

Orkifying The Super Heavy Pt 3

Fun with blu tac and paint sprays.  This time it's black undercoat and Army Painter's Dragon Red.

Orkifying The Super Heavy Pt 2

I decided on some extra changes overnight.

I removed the majority of the Demolisher mount and added two shooter barrels from a Bomma kit.  This is now the hull Heavy Bolter equivalent.  For a Demolisher I used the Lobba weapon from the Battlewagon upgrade frame.

The turret received a spare Stikkbomb Chukka with a fuel barrel and ladder added to the hull.

Orkifying The Super Heavy Pt 1

In preparation for the new Waaaagh!, I've begun the process of suitably Blood Axeing the 3D pront Baneblade.  Using a spare turret from the other model I picked up on eBay, I've added the Stompa Commander and a Bomma Grot Gunner into the cupolas and added the Battlewagon upgrade Kannon as the main armament.

I've also removed the heavy bolters from the sponson and added a left over Kan heavy flamer/ Scorcha and used two Cadian flamethrower nozzles on the other side.

More to follow...

3D Printed Baneblade Wannabe

As mentioned in a previous post, I'm in the fortunate position of having too much time on my hands.  This leads to eBay surfing and this purchase that arrived today. It's not particularly great quality but the turret will probably be removed and end up as the top gun for the Leviathan project.  I have a mind to Orkify the chassis and transplant on a Battlewagon turret. Who knows?  The upcoming Ork codex may have looted wagons back!

New Blood Axe Pith Helmet Mob and Potential Kill Team

Considering the massive market for alternate Orks and Ork bits to add to GW models, I'm surprised no-one has gone for a pith helmet option.  Maybe WWII German Orks are more popular.

Taking advantage of the next best thing, being Curious Constructs pith helmet Ogres, I have started on a Blood Axe mob who were obviously impressed by the way the Praetorians died at Big Toof River!

Taking clippers and files to the helmets, I've hollowed out enough for them to fit on Ork heads.  I just need to order some more from the Kirton Games store as I only have seven at present.  Additionally, I need to wait for a week to check out the full Kill Team rules.  This Mob may be upgraded to Kommando status.
