So a dose of Man Flu has ruined my aspirations so far, it's been a work/collapse cycle the last few days as the last two weeks are also the heaviest work weeks of the year.

Having just passed the last of the heavier post Christmas work load and had a blissfully normal day today I managed to get something worth posting in Da Plog.

Not painting mind as the snotty nose, streaming eyes and mighty sneezing don't go well with painting checks. ( Quite why I seem to think it's ok to use a scalpel I'll never be able to explain to the missus.)

So I had a tinker with one of the second hand bikes I still have to salvage and this is what I came up with.







Nothing majorly different with this one apart from the front mudguard. This happened as one of the second hand bikes had a Trukk rear wheel as the front and one other had a Buzzsaw blade. ( See Nob Bikers Power Klaw, previous post.)

This left me wanting wheels so a Space Marine bike style front end seemed a cool idea on both the doubling my wheel count and from a conversion point of view.

Started tinkering with a Skorcha which I'll show next time round, however far it gets.
Hopefully this flu will abate soon so I can finish painting the Nob Biker.

Cheers Charandris.


Well painting is still not happening so it's been all out on the Skorcha build.

On this one I decided to use some of the metal parts from the standard GW Skorcha, mainly to help me work out the dimensions of the things.

First job was to take a second hand bike I had lying around and cut and shut it to the Skorcha parts. After that it was varying thicknesses of styrene card and rod.





For some reason I decided he should be wearing a leather trenchcoat. Well I do need the GS skills practice.








Got a light?
I really could not work out what to put in the riders hand so I had a quick Cigarette break. Then the thought struck me. One ciggy and a miniature giant Clipper lighter later.


After this one I'll probably do enclosed tracks as often as possible as the open style ones are far too fiddly. Damn things took a whole day.

Back to painting tomorrow....... promise.

After a few mentions in the Supporter chat box here on Heresy the 2013 Army Painting Challenge has been on my mind.

Don't worry it won't be starting for a while yet.

But I realized that I have already failed to complete it twice now, shameful.
So I reckon 3rd time lucky might hold true.

Then again maybe not, to give myself a better chance I have decided to prep 12 units/vehicles etc in advance.

So today I went into the odd little model railway shop and bought about 30 worth of Styrene rod and sheets to add into my stock and join the order of about 20 I placed online for some styrene stuff the train peeps don't use.

Also decided that the price on the Dakka Jet is pretty good for GW and therefore unlikely to stay that low for long and went down there to get one.
Oddly he has to order them as they are not carrying stock for some odd reason, curious and suspicious all at once.

Any way after all that I got home and got back to work on yet another 2nd hand Rhino to use as a Looted Wagon with Boomgun.

Here is its current state.



The plan is to build tracks, a turret and clad it in Orky armour much like the very first one I did all that time ago at the start of the thread.

Hi dude, the dakka jet isn't part of any core line sets. When i ordered my stock for my shop a few months back i had to specifically request storm talons and dakkajets. There are a fair few odds and ends that GW doesn't supply to their smaller branches or indi retailers without it being specifically requested. Helldrakes and maulerfiends being good examples. Retailers have a list of stuff in the core lines which they MUST keep stocked up as much as possible. Everythign else the actual shop needs to ask for specifically.

Nothing but a little painting finished off to show you all in here today.

Shocker int it lol.

The much delayed Ork Biker Nob, RedToof







Which completes the first Bike Mob, RedToof's Ryderz.





After a bit of thought I decided that doing these Orks for the Army Painting Challenge 2013 would be a mistake.
Partly because the fact that every mini needs a bit of conversion and partly because I want to enjoy them, not feel forced/obliged to paint x item this month or certain units to fit the rules of the APC. if I want to paint all Vehicles I can this way.

Instead I will do my Epic Orks for the APC as that will clear an army off the unpainted shelves.

Dunno whats next except finishing the Wagon Build but the Skorcha is calling on the paint front to a degree.
