Ork Lootaz- A Little More Dakka

So here's the second loota I've been working on. These pictures are a little premature because he's still not quite finished yet, but I wanted to keep the updates rolling. So without further ado, I present the 2nd ork loota to be...ahem...finished :)

Here you should be able to see the ammo hopper. The story is that Dokket, the ammo runt, is removing the rounds from an old ammo belt and dropping them into the hopper. The hopper then feeds the rounds into the gun. Unfortunately, the poor guy needs to act fast or else face the displeasure of his master when the gun runs dry!

Ork Lootaz- Re-visiting the Project

I'm sure many of you have been peering back at the blog from time to time wondering 'what ever happened to those lootaz you were working on?' At the time I was getting some fantastic feedback from everybody, which really kept me going with the project but then I moved and they became lost amongst all the other things I've been doing.

Well 2 weeks ago I played a game of 40k using my ork army and did astonishingly well considering my opponent. I also fielded my lootaz in this battle, which had many people attending club that day giving me praise on how cool they looked. Kind words combined with game success has inspired me to get cracking on finishing the unit properly and that means putting the painting hat back on!

So, as I promised Pom, I spent all of Sunday relaxing with DS-9, paint and Toad in the Hole! However, it wasn't battle wagons I was working on (sorry to mislead you Pom). Instead, I got the first of 12 lootaz finished, based and weathered. I do hope you enjoy, oh and keep dropping in, I intend to finished this project fully.

Don't worry you're safe so long as he's aiming at you personally!
