Gargant - painting started

Just a catch up post really - I took these photos a few days ago and the gargant is actually more complete, but I'm pressed for time at the moment.

Before the paint was applied, here's the shoulder turret

 Inspired by this I started 4 slightly bigger nes for the MegaGargant project

Observation platform with more detail

Big Shoota final location

Painting begins - same winter scheme as my other Blood Axes

What's that coming over the hill, is it a Gargant?

Yes - we're starting to get this one ready for the paint shop - sadly just as I go back to work so won't have any painting time, as my weekends are still full of the house that's never fixed! :(

Today's progress:

Gaze of Mork wires/piping

More exhausts, plates, patches and a door with a port hole!

Front view of the head - with that drooping brow and a monocle with trailing pipe on the right, it looks like Patrick Moore!

Observation platform, complete with wind speed and direction indicator and stereoscopic rangefinder! That's how Blood Axes roll!

The phallic gun was made bigger, because well he needed it!

All the gubbinz attached including the tiled/shingled roof of the grot oilers hut (behind the big exhaust).

Just needs the arms rebuilding and the right shoulder kannon turret adding.

It's Grrrreat Gargant

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! :(

Gargantuan Christmas!

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.

Degu - counts-as Centaur

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.

Pulsa Rokkit

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.
