Here is the recent add-ons to my boyz hut from dawn of war.
I've finished with most of the piles of junk around the hut, and everything seems in place, but there is one thing thats bothering me heaps and that is...
That bulbous thing on the back, that looks like a sort of tunnel into the ground which the orks come through... the one I orignally made was out of paddle pop sticks and took me HOURS to make. Then i found some cardboard and figured i should try again, but I'm wondering whether anyone else feels the same as I do, I'm only being nit-picky because the ladder and the rest of the building look so small compared to the size of the hatch I made, because its not easy to get paddle pop sticks to do what you want ^_^;;;
marine for comparison
I am very tempted to make another hatch but I just want to see if anyone deems is nessecary
And these are what I just did:
Just added a few rivets and a couple of small details I noticed, other than some bullet cases on the roof, and paint, it's finished

pretty orky ;Y
I like how you used everyday items like toilet rolls and popsicle sticks. would love to see that baby all painted up.
It's going to be a while before I get it fully painted, as I still have a squad of marines that need even the most basic paint yet, and I also have a pile o gunz in the works.
Believe me though, if I had other things to make it out of, I would of, paddle pop sticks are the most annoying thing ever.
They even broke my gamesworkshop clippers in half just a second ago
Ive decided that I really dont like the hatch on the back, and have made a new one out of plasticard.
Originally i was scared of using the card as its not cheap, and worried about how easily it cuts, but I've learned alot from this simple exercise.
The back of the hut where the old hatch was
The first thing is, plasticard glues together in seconds, literally, which is great for making abstract objects like i have.
And the other thing is that, its actually quite easy to bend or break into shape and holds together really really well, plus it cuts like a dream.
Also with the rebuilding of the hatch, i decided to put shapes on the end of the canister on the side and paint it a bit to match how it looks in the game.
Once all this is done, I'm going to go over all the paddlepop sticks with paper so its a nice flat surface, and do all the finer details.
Ive taken the front off to get around the banner and smooth out the walls.
