  1. A «BIG» project... Continued: Chainsaw Arm!

    Time for the last update of this week-end. I just finished the chainsaw arm! Some tubes and pipes are quite plain so I think I’ll try and do some more highlights on them so they don’t look flat. Here’s the picture:



    One arm to go before I’m out of primed pieces. I’ll try to clean and assemble the many ork and gretchin models I want to be placed on the Stompa during my lunchbreaks, at work this week.

  2. A «BIG» project... Continued.

    Hello again!

    I made some progress on the Stompa. I've got more rusty bits to show you:



    Again some details will be added later. I also managed to finish the feet and the chimneys/smokestacks:





    I tried to darken the openings of the chimneys ...
  3. A «BIG» project...

    For a full year now, I had this model sitting under my gaming table, waiting to get being cared of. I wanted to finish some other projects before I gave my full attention to this one and you must imagine how I was looking forward to get stuck in. So it is big, it is scary, it is...



    That's right! I'm finally building/converting my Stompa! Tag along if you're interested. I'll show you the work-in-progress.

  4. Starting work on Necron Armies on parade piece

    Started buy undercoating Necron tomb citadel tile with black and white citadel spay paint, in order to get a bright green colour to take well. Used masking tape to cover the areas that I will later spray with a sepia wash.

    I then used a fishing net (landing net) that had the desired weave to act as a mask, therefore leaving a repeating hexagon patern of green on black.

  5. Battle Wagon Conversion Continued: Painting Rust.

    Hello again.

    I wanted my ork army to look weathered, battered and uncared for. I needed to find an fast and easy way to paint rust as a basecoat. I'd like to share this technique with you guys.

    It's a technique that uses 5 easy steps.

    Step one: Prime your model (or the pieces you want to be rusty) with a matt black colour.



    Step two: Paint a thin layer of a reddish brown ...

  6. Battle Wagon Conversion Continued: Sponsons!

    Ok. I must admit I stole the idea from Sukigod (if you still visit this place, dude, come say hello, I'm a fan of your ork stuff).

    So here's how I made my fully-fonctionnal-sponsons for my Battle Wagon (see previous post).

    What you need:
    - Spare cannons (your choice)
    - empty contact lenses containers
    - a spent highlighter (or some big plastic tubes)

    First, you have to cut a lenght of tube (this will be the rotating part):

  7. Battle Wagon Conversion

    So... I needed a ride for my Lootas and Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun. What better firing platform than a Battle Wagon! I had to make it obvious that the vehicule would litterally be a «firing platform».

    I dicided to remove the cabin and replace it with a «tower» of some sort. This is the first stages of this project:

  8. Ork conversions

    I really like the look and feel of the Orks in the 40k universe. When one of my friend finally convinced me to play a game with this much investment, I told him that the only army interesting me was the Orks.

    It wasn't long before I started converting models (as much to save money as to create unique models for my army).

    Here's a picture of all my looted models so far:

  9. HappyHowler's projects

    Hi guys!

    I already post my project Wip elsewhere but I thought I'd try to get some feedback from this place. I'll start by showing you what is painted so far for both my 40k Imperial Guards and Orks armies. I took pictures during my progress so, maybe, I'll show you work-in-progress pictures of my favorite projects.

    Feedback, comments, ideas and tips are always more than welcome! Cheers!

    Here's my Imperial Guard army (a little more than 4000 pts and growing): ...
