    On to the next one.....

    Getting a little short attention span here and just feel like jumping around right now. I'm expanding my army to be able to field a full on dread bash and I need to add two squads of kans and another KFF Big Mek. The kans are the immediate need as I've got a KFF and a shokk mek so I can field my 11 walkers, I just need the walkers right now.

    I know the pics are a bit boring and mostly form the box so I'm posting these to show the Kustom Mega Blastas I did up for'em.







    For a very reasonable price I won an ebay auction for an extra set of ccw for the killa kans and a pair of kmb's from the new deff dread kits. I also had a modified kmb from a mekboy model I originally converted for the Wazzdakka battle but never used. These were mashed together and the left sockets magnetized for swap-ability. Tiny glyph plates from the battlewagon kit were used to cover the rough ends on the two dread kmbs attachment points.

    In review of the kits, they're really really good - much like everything else coming out of GW in the last year and a half, especially orks. The details and variety are exceptional, just like the new stormboys kits. I have one big kudos and one big gripe though. Kudos to the engineers/designers/architects for finding better ways to include stable glue points to reduce/eliminate glue seeping out seams. Great job! Gripe? Could you make the connecting points to the sprue lines a little bigger? I mean, really. You're doing a better job at where the sprue attachment points are going and how they show or don't show on the finished models but some of them are kinda ridiculous. I spent more time than expected being really careful to not overcut and nick something else on the sprue and more time cleaning up LARGE spots of sprue excess.

    Other than that (and not including the kmb in the kit... ) I think these are very fun and solid models. Every warboss should have at least a couple.

    OK, as with every Thanksgiving weekend, I took a full army shot as well as assessed my army in total, painted and unpainted. Here's the entire painted portion of my army...



    This is roughly 6,800 points - without pushing wargear and of course not including possible formations.

    Here's everything I have that's assembled/field-able (meaning not in pieces or unfinished assembling)



    This is a total of 10,190 points. I was kinda surprised to see I had broken the 10K mark this year but as seeing there's 4 new Apocalypse units and and addition of two more Killa Kan mobs I suppose it shouldn't have.

    Here's a close up shot.



    Larger one here...

    If anyone wants to see any closeups, I did take a bunch of shots and can post more if you all want. Just let me know.

    So at Thanksgiving end of 2010, here's the stats for Red Jack's Waaagh!

    Painted: 6797 points
    Unpainted: 3393 points

    Total Army Points: 10,190


    Not too shabby. I'm hoping to keep the amount of unpainted work at 1/3rd or less of my total army, I guess that means more painting now and less building

    Later!

    On to the details!

    Got to work this weekend finishing up the details for the stock GW battlewagon, mainly the crew and also the Runtherder from the box set I finished a while ago. Got the skin and straps done - shirts and pants are next.

    Man that is so sweet.
    6800 points of painted orks
    Makes me want to build less and paint more.
    But what can you do, usually when you end up getting something painted you have to buy some more orks just to keep the balance and theres newer too much orks ofc.
    Thats why i seriously think your army needs a few stompas more
    Next stop 15k

    Ok, quick update - I'm not dead, just really busy.

    Did manage in the last three weeks to warp up the crew for the stock battlewagon and started the runtherder for the grot mob I did a while back. The runtherder is a really nice model with lots of detail and character, much like the rest of the new ork sculpts. Very well done GW. I'm doing him in small parts as to not go crazy trying to figure everything out at once. I'm also trying to practice a little with some NNM (non-metallics metal) and still have a long way to go.

    I also need to paint the deff rolla before I can call the stock battlewagon completely finished. Again, not a huge rush as I've got very little hobby time at the moment.

    Here's the pics!

    Runtherder WIPS



    And the Battlewagon Crew

    Thanks everyone!

    OK, this is to prove I'm not dead yet... just extremely busy in the real world with real world crap.

    I've spent some time over the last week painting the squighound for fun and the grabbin klaw for testing. I want to play around with doing NMM (non-metallics metals) so the runtherder is my first real test piece. So far, ... eh, it's alright in my book. I've spent a lot of time looking around and watching vids and such and there's a real truth in this hobby to "you don't really learn anything until you do it your self - whether it's works or not."

    I'm learning that my blending skills still have a long way to go and I need to push the edges of my contrast a little more. What ever though, here's the unfinished slaver about 90% done.



    See, I'm not dead, just outta time for the time being.

    Done!

    The runtherder is finished and rejoined by his grotty minions (which were finished in March of last year I might add...).







    Not sure what's on my plate next. I've got a lot of stuff to build and a lot of stuff to paint. Real life is keeping me pretty busy so it's not a priority to get anything in particular finished. I might just putter away at Gazghkull here and there for a while... (I know I;m a tease!)

    Looks like you decided to change the gum color on the squig? Any particular reason why?

    Anyway, they look great. Clicking on your updates is always time well spent. Your Apoc horde absolutely blows my mind...

    edit: I guess it looks less like lipstick now; good change!

    I've been on a bit of a break from active modeling/gaming lately as other aspects of my life become priorities. Buying an advertising agency, getting ready for a 50 hour trivia marathon (which we host a 20 person team from our house), and planning a 32 man bar tournament - they've all pretty much kept me away from the bench. I kinda welcome the break to be honest. I've got about a dozen projects started know and it bothers me to have so many "open" at once.

    Since I don't know when, or how much time I'll have available to me at any one moment, I decided to grab three miscellaneous models from my unpainted stock and figured I'd putter away at them piecemeal until they're done. I've chosen two slavers and a Mekboy with a KMB. All models I will be fielding more often so figured I'd gettem up to par.

    Skin done.



    This won't last for long though. after the trivia contest next week my meks work/paint shop will be relocating to it's own room downstairs (finally!). My wife is taking over the office upstairs and I'll be taking over the "rumpus/sewing" room. It'll be nice to spread out again and have everything I need at easy reach without having to dig through multiple closets and various storage spaces hidden around the house. This will take about a week or two so the shop will be closed till I get everything in place in the new room. I can't wait!

    OK dokey. 50 Hour Trivia Marathon is over. The house is back to normal and I've got the lions share of the modeling stuff setup in the new hobby room. Here's the situation before. One small hutch and a large computer desk (at left, out of frame) that I shared with my wife. Most everything that didn't fit inside the cabinet was stashed/hidden in different closets all over the house.



    Aaaaand the after.





    Starting from the left. Cutting/building station. Anything dealing with actual building is done here. I'll be replacing this small artists table son with a metal table that's a little larger. I have yet to unload all the boxes and tools that will be set up here. There'll also be power strips up either side of the table so I can plug in small powertools/hairdryers/drills. etc. easily and hang them over the edge of the table.

    Display case #1

    Computer desk. $25 on Craigslist. I love Craigslist. Computer and gaming books are here.

    Display case #2

    Painting Hutch: This is the original one from upstairs only this time it houses only stuff for painting.

    Airbrush Station. This is a multifunctional space. I will use this as a small photo studio for taking pics when I'm not using it for an airbrush stand. I've got an old range hood from a kitchen remodel my wife and I did years ago that will be placed on top with some filters placed around and on top. This will allow me to airbrush indoors as it'll be vented and filtered. I am very, very excited about this portion of the expansion.

    Now that I've got a dedicated work area where I can leave unfinished projects out I can start focusing on my blasta bomber project.

    I'll be finishing the painting on the two slavers and Mek Boy in the next week. I'm kinda looking forward to getting back into the swing of things 40K related.

    Surprisingly, none of our (8) cats like to grab the minis. One has a fascination with brushes and another will do almost anything to sneak sponges off my desk. Other than that I think I lucked out with kitties who don't care... (isn't that all of them?)

    Where did you get those display cabinets flanking your desk? Very Awesome. Oh, and that definitely includes the army.

    Have the flyers been worked on anymore, kinda curious to see what happens with them.

    IKEA!

    As for the two previous flyers, I probably won't be putting much time into those for a while. Eventually, but for now they're just "table-top" ready. My "big project" for the year will be a blasta bomber instead. Much more dakka than a couple of fighta bombers!
