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.

Fenryll Big Gun

Just following up from the post the other day with a picture of the assembled Fenryll cannon. The model looks to me to be stupidly short - no trails or similar on the gun, so I have added some. This helps bring the gun closer to the modern Mek Gun size too, and more in keeping with the rest of the squad.

Armorcast Cannon of Khorne

Finally got my hands on one of these- really happy to as I've wanted one for years!

I'll repaint it eventually, but it'll help complete my full set of Daemon Engines.

IAR-93 Part 2

Some paint applied - it still needs work on the underside (pin wash and second coat of blue), then the decals and we're done.

Big Gunz

My Orks got an outing recently in the Second Battle for Armageddon game we (Animosity) ran up at Slayer Games in Mansfield. I got absolutely blown to pieces in the pseudo Apocalypse game, so for the 3rd War I'm thinking I need to beef up my support weapons. We're heading to a 5k limit for each Ork player so I need to paint some more toys!

We're using the old style force orgs, and can't have anything from a second force org until the first is full. What this means for me is that I need to upgrade squads before I can add new ones as I only have a few slots free at 4k (I fill the first force org, and part of the second). The first unit I want to enlarge is my Big/Mek Gunz unit.

So here's what's coming:

Hop Splat Gun (as a Kannon), I'll need to base this and add some as it's very small by modern standards.

Fenryll Miniatures Goblin Cannon (another Kannon), but I'll be adding some trails to help balance the look of this one.

Kromlech Howitzer (for the Lobba unit)

Some spare Ork weapon carriages for another Lobba and a Zzap gun.

IAR-93 Part 1

A fighter jointly produced by Romania and Yugoslavia in the late 70s and early to mid 80s. This is an expensive resin kit which is a bit of a pig - here you can see me replacing the undercarriage covers with greenstuff.

IAR-316 Part 1

Simply a Romanian produced version of the Alouette.

Some painting still to do and the rotors to re-add. I'll revisit this after our game and add the decals I have already.
