Been covering the card plates with styrene ones, since Christmas - it's getting tiring now.Oh and don't mention rivets - seriously! I've had a little fun adding engine details and some platforms at the back for Grot Oilers and Riggers - quite a bit more to do and I'm working on the house all this week and back at work on Monday! :(
Well it's Christams Day and I'm waiting for the Turkey to cook, so I have some time to post up another Ork related blog article! A few weeks back I bought this Gargant on ebay - it's a brilliant build given it's made from card and household items. However, it doesn't quite fit the Great Gargant datasheet we use (it's Great Gargant sized but armed more like a Slasha) and the rivets are rather large being made via a regular office hole punch.
So here's the Gargant as bought (the arms are removable which is good for transport).
And here's the start of the changes - rivets being removed prior to re-plating some areas with styrene sheet and smaller rivets.
I think I got my first Degu for Christmas in 2011, and almost 3 years to the day later, I'm finally building it (and the 2 I bought last week). These are going to be fitted with a plough, and some infantry seated on the back using Victoria Lamb seated legs, and rolled out for my Blood Pact as Centaur alternatives. I'll be adding some stored rocket reloads on the back for my Thudd Gun/Nebelwerfers and claiming the poor ammo storage location, and propensity for the crew to ride on the top is why the vehicle has the open-topped rule.
I won one of these old school models on Ebay last week, and I felt compelled to get it on the table somehow . I'll run it in Apoc with some custom rules, but in the meantime it can serve as a nice piece of scenery on this ramp I threw together with some I-beam strip styrene. Since I took the photo it got a boat load of rivets added - I'll photograph it again when it's got some paint on it.
