Words_of_Truth Thanks

Last bits (apart from additional grots) turned up today and and adding the turret and some horns on the front, I sprayed it along with all the other looted stuff I've made which includes three killa kans out of sentinels, a looted wagon with boomgun out of a leman russ and a looted wagon out of a Chimera. I've also ordered some more bits from bits and kits so I can make a deff dread out of a space marine dreadnought

Galahad Awesome, lookin good

Words_of_Truth Latest update on what I've done, including starting to paint my Killer Kan. Waiting for a grot turret to come to put on top of the Valkyrie, then I'll spray it.

Words_of_Truth Taken the suggested ideas on board btw

Anyway here's what I've done in the mean time while waiting for other bits to turn up.

Killa Kan (Although if I add an additional close combat weapon and another ranged weapon it could pass as a deff dread?)


Looted Wagon

Words_of_Truth I'm thinking of getting the grots from fw and choosing the two I've circled in the picture, the one with the ammo is going to be at one of the doors about to drop it, the other is going to stuck to the side of the aircraft somewhere and I may add 1 or 2 others as well but not sure yet.

morfangdakka You gotta have a squig chewing on some wires on one of the wings. Also a spotter grot bolted to the outside to help the pilot pick out targets. I think I would have put a ork in the back chucking out some bombs you know for precision bombing. LIKE THIS

Unforgiven302 Get your hands on the grot turret from the battlewagon kit and add it to the top of the hull. The tusks from the kans or deff dred kits would be sexy too, jutting from the front all menacing like.

And got's, need hapless grots infesting the dangerous parts.

Other than that, great idea and one I may borrow to build one for my sons orks.

Galahad mesh on the cockpit would be cool, keeps da bigger birds outta yer teef.

There those pipes cross over in the back, you should wrap some wire around the join. Just some thin metal wire. Strip the paper off a twist-tie and use that. You can use it in other places too to make it look like stuff is just lashed on.

Thin strips of paper thin styrene make great duct tape. If you use plastic cement to coat the underside it softens it up enough to make it conform to what's under it just- like tape would as well. Leave the ends unglued and bent up a little, maybe rough up the edge with your nippers to make a jagged tear.

I did it on my rhino trukk conversion and it really helped sell the de-armored look

Words_of_Truth I got some of that modelling wire mesh, was wondering whether you think I should put some over the pilots cockpit after I paint the orc, to give it a "window" rather than leaving it bare.

scscofield I think if yah yanked the turbines off and put one massive one on top that might make it look majorly Ork. Or take the engines from their buggies and place like 3 of them in a row in each turbine cowl. They like big engines :-p
