Orc Warcopta - WIP

Another find on Thingiverse, with a few mods. I printed the helicopter as normal, but found the supplied rotors were too small. For some reason, when enlarged, they wouldn't print so I got just the raised sections. Anyway, I'm handy with styrene sheet so used those bits and details and cut a new rotor. The mek door piece was resized (53mm square) and added just to enclose the cockpit area, which looked too open. This is the piece in green. I've started painting this but have run out of black primer - the horror! The filler is there because my printer isn't quite setup correctly at the moment, and flat surfaces tend to curve a little and the parts lose adhesion to the build plate - a new mat is on order.

Styka - WIP

Still no time to paint, but the printer has been going lots. The Ragnarusses are progressing, but in the meantime I've assembled this, rescaled to fighta-bomma size, another Thingiverse treasure.

Ragnaroks - WIP 1

I've been printing 3 of these "Ragnarusses", by the time you read this, they will have had the missing bits printed and the printing errors on the sides filled and sanded.

Luna Wolves - WIP 1

Just an excuse to print some more things. One is a Luna Wolf Captain, completed with some Mk.4 bits and a skull from the GW skull kit. The second is a push fit-MK.2 that someone shared on Thingiverse. I'm planning to paint hese as Luna Wolves, as well as take it up to Squad strength as one of my friends is planning lots of pre-heresy games.

Dolphin - WIP

Found this, and printed for a laugh - just in case we need to 'summon bigger fish' spell (yes I know this is a mammal). It will no doubt turn up in my next watery adventure, planned for 2021.

Leman Russ Annihilator - WIP 1

This started life as a Models and Minis Olifant tank kit, with their trench rails too. For somereaons I didn't get a hatch, so I found one on Thingiverse, as well as a stubber and sorted that, then I found a twin lascannon to round out my plans. The cannons were mounted on a large block for a different kit, so I sawed them off, and pinned and sculpted them onto the Olifant turret. Just need to add an aerial, then paint.

Slaaneshi Leviathan - WIP 1

I don't usually try and print exact copies of vehicles, as I prefer to use the build time for custom stuff, but I wanted to try the Photon for some larger items. So I found myself printing a Leviathan Dreadnought with bits to make some custom Butcher Cannon arrays.

The icon and sound grills are added as extras, with a liitle GS to fix errors, and I've seen two more flaws during photography I need to fix. The base is also 3d printed (on the Ender 5) and the odd colour shift, grey to yellow, is caused by me needing to change the filament during the print.

Inquisitor + Retinue - WIP 1

I found these stls on Thingiverse I think, and had some spare space on a build plates over several prints. They should paint up nicely when my muse returns.

Come on Feel the Noise Marines - WIP 1

Start of my first (well actually my second I think) Noise marine squad. Blood Angel Sanguinary Guard bodies, heads and pads from Kromlech and weapons from a guy in France, if I remember correctly. I have some more arms to make a second squad too! I'll be adding the plastic GW Noise Marine to this squad as the leader to make it up to the necessary 6...

Slaaneshi Subjugator WIP 1

The second Slaaneshi Titan that I've started. I'm planning to build the pair in tandem, but the main body for each requires some fitting work so I've got to do that before constructing the legs. Stl for this is from evanogainen on Thingiverse.

Goblin Gunz WIP 1

Another historic build - had these ages in my pile-o-shame. They come from Miniature Scenery in Australia, and are a fun, if not involved build. You can build each gun with a cannon or magnetic gun which is obviously very cool when using them as Mek Gunz. I'm planning to permanently mount the weapons, and then build other carriages for the spares - uses up more bits from the pile-o-shame.

You can get them here:

Kustom Kanz WIP 3

This is the Kan from yesterday, with the body printed at the right size - sadly already had a set of oversized legs made, so used them and some spare feet - crazy look but very Orky I think.

Deff Dread WIP 1

Talking of 3d printing Kanz as we did yesterday - here's what heppens when you get crappy stl files - the tops of the exhausts fail to print, and the item comes out much bigger than it should do. So much so in fact, that you have to convert it into a Dreff Dread - arms to follow.

Kustom Kanz WIP 2

The second Kan, is currently at this state, and the remainder are even less far advanced. I'm now saving time by 3d printing bits where I can.

Kustom Kanz WIP 1

When I started this project, to make several scratchbuilt Killa Kanz, I had planned to build everything except the weapons myself. Since the project had stalled, I bought some extra bits online to help out and more recently ploughed on - here is the first one I completed, prior to paint.

Fallen Kan WIP

This was one of the first things I ever 3d printed, but the print failed, and a whole horizontal section failed to print. now with a bit more time, I filled in the missing bit with some heading-past-its-best greenstuff, and then added some details.

Next step, find things to fill the rest of the base and paint!

Bowelburna - WIP 1

Bought this resin kit some years back (forget who from), found it in the loft recently, so threw it together, and added some details so hide some gaps that broke immersion (don't look too closely that the front wheels can't turn!
