Righty, Righty. The exams are over (both on the same day Friday!)! Which can only mean that I have had a little free time to do up my orks a little bit. these guys are just over a year old now and since then i really have improved my painting with a number of really effective techniques (thank you painting corp!) So im just in the process of touching them all up (not in that way!) will a little paint and detail.

First up pride and joy......the scratch built battle wagon!

I think the wagon it's self is still a little bare of trophies icons and worky bitz etc... the original idea was that this would be modular so i could apply all the wagon upgrades and weapons to it should i wish. also i would like the build an upper compartment so that i can turn it into a battle fortress. Also i left it bare so that i could add trophies to it as a played games. sadly though i totally forgot! so sprucing up is needed!

i should be working on this over the next couple of days. ill try and keep you posted.

The Orks are back

Right then, I'm back in Aber now right in the middle of revising for my first MSc exams. Two good things came out of the Christmas holiday....1) i worked and earned some money. 2) i was able to bring my ork army back with me.

So my smurf like musings have progressed now onto orks. Maybe they will flit back to the traitor guardsmen when new tanks are released?! Who knows.

Any way here is what my exam revision stress busting painting sessions have produced.

It's a Waaahhh banner nob yay! Complete with smashed in skull matter. After all a big sharp banner isn't just for looking at, it's for whacking people with as well.

Just need to add some space marine insignia to the banner plates (imperial fist and ultramarine) and i think he is done!

Hopefully the next update will take far less time....its not easy this blogging lark is it?
