Blood Axes in Winter

Postby SirTainly » 21 Jan 2015, 22:23

I think the old thread was on the old board - well updating with the gargant story so far:

Being a butterfly, I've gone back to working on some Orks - laregly because I need to have this Gargant in playable form by the end of the month!

This is how I bought the Gargant on Ebay in December - made of carboard tube and normal paper punch rivets. A great start but I thought I could improve it - you may disagree!

Image

All the rivets were removed (it took ages) and the surface was re covered with styrene sheet (the arms are removable)

Image

Some detail was added to the back

Image

Scale shot with Stompa and Killa Kan
Image

Gaze of Mork detail added
Image

More pipes!
Image

Patrick Moore monocle and frown look
Image

It's a Great Gargant so needs shoulder stations - observation platform is started
Image

Belly Gun gets and extension and a Big Shoota is added to the covered embrasures
Image

Poor image, but the engine has some details
Image

Progress shot from the front

Image
Image[hr]While I was building turrets, started 4 for my MegaGargant project

Image

More work on the observation platform

Image

Big Shoota again
Image

Winter themed scheme starts to be applied - to match the rest of my Blood Axes

I've always loved your paint scheme Simon. A well excecuted, dishevelled looking colour scheme that isn't a traditional Orky colour too. Will look the nuts on this GARGANT!

cheers guys :)

Yes 'king loads of rivets in I think, about 6 different sizes/thicknesses.

But the best bit about my scheme is that it's pretty fast! :)
