  1. 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 ...

  2. 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):

  3. 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:

  4. Back to the table!!

    After a fairly lengthy break I've roamed back into the realm of painting.

    After six months off, I'm going to be fairly rusty at doing anything.

  5. 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:

  6. 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): ...

    Okay, so:


    I mixed up all my oils, and they are drying up (even though I made alot of them- tube paint does not lend itself to small drops). I went ahead and did skin and hair, even though one wrong move will smudge the other, but the turquoise makes a natural complement to her skin, thus creating a good contrast. I'll
