Quick update to the clowns.

was bored one evening so i started work on a truck for one one my boyz mobz and ended up finishing it.

used the back half of a toy camper van and the front half of a standard ork trukk.




came out a bit odd. added wheels from a warbuggy onto the toy caravans axle so the back wheels turn. however the front ones don't.



Painted it up for stumpy so thats why it looks like the love child of a umpa lumpa and a transformer.



Not Sure if i'm finished with it yet i think it may still need some work on it

Been up to a bit lately made a few additions to my army

First up we have Butchers car he has been whining like mad for me to make him a truck.

so i started with a London taxi toy took it apart and cut part of the roof off


Then Rebuilt that section of roof out of plasticard and put a ork from a sompa on top

And Gave it a sweet grill from an ork trukk model


Then covered the drivers windows with plasitcard as armour pannels. Then of course rivetts .... so many rivetts

Then came the painting red and yellow with spots for butcher just how he likes it and gave the ork on the gun a lovely wig

Then we add finishing touches skull hood orniment, goat skull roof orniment, and an orgyn gun for the ork on top


Finally re attach the wheels and bumpers and give them the same paint scheme and attach killy hub cap blades.

And there you have it turning a honest taxi cab into a ork death machine. next time e make a mime a little bit more creepy.

wow triple post. hitting new realms of boring it seems.

maybe the third post will be better .. meh maybe


so Ring Master Honka is a tooled up badass now this causes a problem in games terms he is kinda expensive. but i don't want to have skimmed down version of him so another warboss is needed and a back story.



(started off with a "assault on black reach" warboss body and replaced both his arms with original rogue trader power fists aiming for a dramatic pose)

here in lies the problem the warboss doesn't talk doesn't waagh doesn't make a sound unsure if he is unable to talk or chooses not to.



(painted the head first its an ork nob head from the sprew allowed me to test out some suggestions that Grimzag had suggested)

Due To his way of talking by gesturing and waving his arms He was dubbed The Mime Master.


(after painting the model with the main colours chaos black and ushabti bone [possibly named something else now but my paints are old and that's what they are called] then did a brown wash highlighted once thats done went over the white parts again with ushabti bone and high lighted with a lighter white [white scar])

He rose through the ranks by systematicly crushing the wind pipes of any orks that opposed him or any that where just too noisy


(touch ups doing the details any silvers or browns. also a second coat of scar white where it was needed)

after roaming for a long time he teamed up with ring master honka. some say it was because he found a common relationship with honka as neither can communicate properly others say its because they both have a weird thing for seeing orks in makeup. this we will never know.


(found better way to take phots used a couple pieces of paper to make a floor and back drop. then used a s.a.d light (natural light lamp) to illuminate from above)
all we know for now is he may not scream like an ork, but when this white faced daemon walks the battlefield, you should always listen out for his whirring power claws as that's the last thing you will hear before he chokes you to death.

Nice work on the warboss, I think the black on the tabard is too dark, maybe water down some white and go over it, and it would be a little smoother of a transition from the bright white, to more of a grey than straight black, but the rest of him looks great. Love the white, black & green color scheme. Really dynamic.

Oh and if you take your pictures next to a window with natural light, and just set the lamp next to it, that might help get rid of those ''light lines". It worked for me. The white backdrop really helps bring out the detail in your models by reducing some of that noise in the background.

Not boring, just running out of ways to say you're an insane genius.

All the vehicles look amazing - the pink car and the ice cream van especially.

The mime warboss looks great, i love the idea behind this. The design for his face is perfect and draws the eye right where it needs to be. I can't help but think he needs something more for his hands, but not sure what as you'd ruin the mime effect if they weren't pure white.

Gotta Echo Varakir here. Youre definetly crazy but it come out and looks sooo good! I really like the Mime master model and he fits into your army perfectly. however this model differs slightly from all other in your army. Where everything else is lighthearted and makes me laugh and giggle at the absurdity (the grot herder for example) this guys terrifies me. He would not be out of place next to freddy kruger or jason in terms of how fucking creepy looking he is. Very nice job. now i wont be able to sleep tonight.

whats more creepy then a mime how bout a gang of mimes all roaming around together



Giving The mime master several mime cronies to follow him.

all armed with power claws is to make them tank hunters.





Sorry for the lack of photos and base decoration i an currently between houses and having trouble finding things.

will do an update where everyones together including the mime master.
