Trying to think of that modelling stuff that kind of looks like metal mesh thats on the stompa but I can't for the life of me figure out what it's called. That stuff with the small tiny holes in it that looks like fencing or something.

Kind of like this but plastic

You can get mesh from hardware stores or art stores for cheaper most likely.

Stuff like this:

Would probably work just as well.

Edit: But yes what you posted would work just fine, I am just a cheap bastard and would attempt to find it local.

GUBBINS AND WIRES! GUBBIN IT UP BOSS! It is very cool though and now with the flyers rules it would be a lot better.

On the clan thing, I was thinking one of the following:

Deathskulls: They steal and loot everything, only to sell it off almost immediately. (Blue and black paint job, distinctive and fairly easy.)

Bad moonz: They are rich. Very rich. They have the biggest, nicest and generally best vehicles and weapons. (Yellow + Black paint job, can be a little tricky on little details, but on a big thing like a valkyrie that won't really be a problem.)

Evil Sunz: They like to go fast. Paint it red, red one's go faster. Proven fact. (Easiest paint job, as much red as physically possible, with a few metal bits.)

Yeah, think I've decided on Death Skullz.

Btw was thinking of looting some sentinels to act as Killer Kans, would this work?

Not sure if you're still looking for that plastic mesh, but it's called "plastic canvas." It's used for needlecraft.

If you've decided on Death Skullz, remember that they stole it/looted it from someone else so some of the prior paint job may still be visible.

I can see sentinels as killa kans--are you planning on cutting down their long legs into something more stubby?

I wasn't sure, I was going to add loads of Ork bits to it like wrecking balls and rocket launchers and additional armour plates etc.

Sentinels work great as killa kans, grots from the plastic kit fit perfectly inside. As for the Valkyrie, definitely needs more orkiness, but off to a great start!

Oh, Idea! What if you strapped an ork under the wing and gave him a rokkit launcha as one of the Valkyrie weapons?



USMC, Oorah!
