|Nope, it's not more Lizardmen.|
It's been a very fickle month.
I took a break from painting this week and started a vehicle conversion for my 40K Orks. This is the most complex conversion I've done, and so far (at about 75% complete) I'm very excited.
This model includes:
- An old Hellhound that was assembled, primed, set aside for several years (it's important to properly age your models), cut apart on a bandsaw and reassembled
- The torso and legs from an WFB Ork Boar Boy
- A Space Marine Bike
- The dozer blade from Space Marine Rhino
- The wheels from a WFB Ork Chariot
- The cap from an inhaler
- The body of a ballpoint pen
- Some PVC pipe
- Leftover copper wire from a home-improvement project
- Annealed steel wire
- Paper clips and welding rod (for pinning)
- A pile of scrap 1/8" polystyrene sheet
- A random selection of polystyrene tubes, rods and strips
Most of the vehicle is finished, but the gunner and his seat still need some work. Here's what I want to add this week:
- A head, arms, and shoulder pads for the gunner.
- Supports to the driver's seat. Right now it looks like it's floating behind the turret. It should look like it's firmly attached.
- A seat back and crash harness
- Controls and some wires to connect them to the turret
- Exhaust pipes
Next up: the finished looted Hellhound. this time I really mean it. Really.
