Ghazghkull Thraka – final reveal

Here’s some pics of my latest figure or figures, Ghazghkull Thraka and his standard bearer.

I’m quite happy with how it turned out, even though I made a few mistakes like assembling it fully before painting.

Ghazghkull Thraka – part 2

With the big guy done it was time to turn the attention to Makari the standard bearer.

It’s a bit hard to take good pics of him as he is leaning forward.

Both of them!

A little grass added.

I added a few details on Ghaz and now both are done!

I took pics for the final reveal, but wasn’t happy with how they turned out.

The colours doesn’t look quite right. I’ll take new pics with black or white background, I only need to move all the boxes that is covering them at the moment.

GhazGhkull Thraka – Ork hero boss – WH40k – Games Workshop.

I started building this kit in August. Probably at the build weekend I attended.
As with many of the other builds I did there, I more or less forgot to take proper pics, but let’s start with the box.

The first build pic was from the meeting.

Then everything got painted black.

In retrospect it was a bit of a mistake to build the whole figure as some parts are very hard to reach when painting.

A little bit of metal painted.

Once I got home a little more got painted.

This is a pic of all my boss figures.

Some stirland mud painted on the base.

After some detail painting on the base, some grass was added to the base.

And for the third time I’ve glued the broken thrown out shells.

Just some detail touching up to do and Ghaz is done.

Left to do is his standard bearer Makari.

Ork Trukk – WH40k- final reveal

This was a fairly quick build, even though the kit have a few problems with fit locations.
It’s no big problems to sort, and now this one is finished!

It would be fun to build one for one of the other clans and get a little more bright colours!

Ork trukk – part 2

I did some more work and added the missing parts. Then I used thinned out pale sand to give tires and a few other spots a sandy look. Trying to make it look like sand had collected in some places. I used a brush but perhaps I should have misted it on with the airbrush instead.
Anyway I think I’ll consider it done!

I’ll take some proper pics for the final reveal later.

Ork Trukk – Warhammer 40k – Games Workshop

As I’m already building a lot of orks, I thought this truck or trukk could be a nice addition.

The chassie was fairly easy.

Next part of the build was the engine.

Not long after it was time for some black paint.

After painting the engine, tires and frame, I could start assembly a bit.

Then I painted some more parts in rust and different metal colour.

I think I achieved a nice rusty metallic feel to the whole vehicle.
Next some more parts was painted black.

Then it was time to assemble a bit more.

I had to build and test fit the two figures before I could paint them properly.

Some more painting done.

Close up on the figures!

I put the figures in place as well as the wrecking ball and the ramps.

Not much left to do! I need to sort the exhaust pipe as I wasn’t happy with how it looked and then there’s one more part to get in place. Looks like exhaust pipes of some kind but the instructions aren’t very clear on where they should go.

I think I’ll need to get the large pipe in place first and then try to figure the small pipes.
Once that is done I’ll start making the finishing touches by adding some dirt and touching up small mistakes.

Combat Patrol – Orks – part 3

The boss and the dredd got some more paint.

The rest of the gang got primed!

The box with orks ended up following me to the build weekend. The dredd figure got some terrain and some more paint.

The boss also got some more paint.

The orks got some grey primer and a light white drybrush.

Then I started painting the skin green.

The deff koptas also got the same treatment.

Once I got home, I continued with the green colours adding more highlights.

Still some more to do with the skin. Then I’ll start painting their clothes and other details.
Just need to figure good colours for their pants and shirts. Since they’re goff I guess it would be mainly dark or perhaps black.

Combat Patrol – Orks – part 2

I’ve started painting them in black primer. The dreadnought also got some rust and metal colours. The boss figure also got some metal painted on the larger metal areas.

After that I assembled the Dredd and started adding more colours like the checker pattern, which wasn’t easy doing by freehand.

Eyes and a few other details left to do and I’ll also add some more rust here and there.
The boss figures got some dry brushing with grey and white.

I’ll start to paint the skin green and I’ll also finish priming the other orks so I can start painting them as well. Except for the checker patterns it’s a quite simple painting scheme mostly in black and metal.

Combat Patrol – Orks – Warhammer 40k

This is one of the 24 (as far as I know) available Combat Patrol boxes from Games Workshop. Which is their new starter sets instead of the Start Collecting boxes.
As I understand it the troops included make up about 500 points. This is enough to have smaller battles that takes from half an hour to an hour.
Normal battles consist of troops worth 2-3000 points and usually takes a while longer to play. This box is supposed to be a good starting point to build your army.

The build of the figures is fairly easy as it’s push fit and supposed to go together with no glue. I snip or sand the tabs a bit to ensure that they don’t stop at the bottom of the hole. This is to prevent the parts from not going together properly. The fit of these kits is very good so it might not be needed, but still, just in case.

Here’s some build pics!

Big boss in armour.

First boss nob.

The first few boyz.

Three deff koptas.

The Deff Dredd. I actually got one of the very pointy spikes in my finger, which drew a drop of blood!

All the figures in the box built!

I’ve started painting black primer on some of them and that is the next step I’ll be working with on these guys. I’ll also use grey and white primer to do zenithal highlighting before I start to paint them.
