WIP: All about the base, no Gravel... Dakkajet Base

I know bad pun but after I said it to my wife I knew I had to put it here.  Over the weekend I finished painting my Dakkajet's base.  I gues I abandoned my gravel flock back at the old house so until I get some more The dakkajet is complete.

Looking at Alternative Ork Boys.

Happy Monday!

I was looking at some of my favorite third party modellers and noticed that they are now making ork boys.  While I always love me some orks and you can never have enough boys, I think I am going to pass on all these new boys.

Showcase: Riptide


I finished up my second Riptide.  Tomax and Xamot are ready to take the field. For the second Riptide I decided to just glue the gun on.  I doubt I will ever want to field 2 burst cannons. I also switched out the colors on the shields.  This way I can say grey shield or orange shield and my opponent will know which I am talking about.

Hobby Tip: fingernail polish powersword

Someone asked how I did my power sword on my scion so I took some pictures while I did up another one.

Heading into the weekend....

...I got started on painting up my riptide.  I also got his hard points magnetized and hidden.  Here is a quick peak at what I am working on.
First coat of orange is complete.  It will need another couple of coats to be complete.  I might need to finish with the new base color.  I thought I was using the old foundation paint on the first one but the colors look off.

Have a good weekend.  Since I got a request I plan on putting up a tutorial on my power sword this weekend.

Questions? Comments? Pew pew pews?

WIP: Dakkajet Conversion.

I know that Dakkajets conversions are so 5th edition but I never got around to doing the conversion that I wanted and I never thought I had the skills to pull it off.  Well times change and I have done some scratch building now so I decided it was time for the Ork-10 Dakkajet.

Showcase: Tempestus Scion Squad.

Last night I finished up painting the Scions I just built.  It is weird that I had not finished the others before taking on these guys but they were sitting there on my station all primed and ready to go so, I finished them.

WIP: Scions again

With the league starting up this week I thought I should work on my Scions since I was going to use them for my kill team.  After building all that I have, I noticed that I am missing a few things.

WIP: second Riptide, pathfinder mini

Last week I received a package in the mail that had my second riptide.  I was worried that it was a bit shady seeing I got it for half price.  My worries came true.
