Hello all. I've bee working on these for a while, only reciently picked them back up and started to really work on them. I will be going back and forth with a few of my projects.

Here are the pictures .



The one big shootas is a bit too big for a grot tank, but the mini 50 cal is perfect size and I have 3 more in the works.

One tank requires a base coat and 2 require rust coats. Then it will be ready for salt and hairspray then the main colour.

Each tank will have a different main colour, this will give them an independent look. After the main colour is done I will be setting up the colour to unify them and bring them back into looking like a unit.

Building a "grot" army. I have about 100 gnoblers to convert. 2 buggies to finish, and a battlewagon. I have the forgeworld deff mob list, but looks like using the new ork codex will be better... until they update it.

I also want to get a morkanaut and convert it to a mega dread.

Building kustom exhaust, the forge world ones are nice, but just dont quite match the look I want.

So if you have a big mek you can field these as an elite spot. And if you have these you can field a grot mega tank as a fast slot.

I'm thinking grots, buggies and tanks oh my.

Going to buy a gasket punch set, this will make making tracks easier.

The brown us the base / rust coat. When done I will fix any paint gaps, re rust them, then paint them ork like. They will be weathered(my favorite part) I have some nice round wood bases for them to base and mud.

I blame the rum, fantastic 4 and my attention span.... once I got around to putting it together it goes faster then you'd think.. lol



6 hours 2 wheels.... not so bad lol more like 20 minutes a tire so in total 40 minutes... its ok. Done for tonight, a whole day of tomorrow to go.

Rear wheels, then track are my goals.



The most pivitol pieces making this possible are....

Does the brand matter.. nope. Where to get.. canadian tire for the o-ring hooks(scribes) and micheals for the circle template. Cost about 14$ total.
