I'm taking a break from my Tyranids and getting to work on some Orks. First up are 9 Deffkoptas from the AOBR set.
The first thing I wanted to fix were the weapons. All of the AOBR Deffkoptas come with twin linked rokkits and I wanted a little more flexibility, so I used a razor saw to cut to the top two rokkits off 6 of the Deffkoptas and then used a pin vise with a 1/32" bit to drill a hole into each rokkit stub. A matching size rare earth magnet went into each hole. This will allow me to swap out rokkits for big shootas or even buzz saws. Another rare earth magnet was glued into a hole under the rear rotor to hold a bomb.
And the results after some initial basecoats. The dags will get painted after I wash the entire figure in Paynes Grey
I'm keeping a log of time for each step which will be posted later as a full "How to"
Very Kool, Now I've got flight of the valkryes buzzing through my head.
Wow, those are great. Where do you get the rules for the different weapons, and where did you get the parts for the weapons?
The rules are in the Ork Codex. Deffkoptas can be equipped with twin linked rokkits, twin linked big shootas, or another type of shoota. They can also be equipped with bombs and buzz saws (counts as a power claw). The shootas I'll make from the extra shootas off the boyz sprue. The bombs and the buzz saws I'll have to make from scratch.
the squadron is looking good. might I recommend throwing some black or red paint here and there to cover up some of that metal. Dont get me wrong it is looking good, its just that I figure that the orcs wouldnt be able to find much of the same type of metal parts at any given time. Visually I think some accent color on the rotors or rear-rotor-strut-thingy would help balance out the red on the nose.
Armies thus far....
Definately. The grills on the exhaust pipes and under the cowling will get some VMC Brass, the Orks will get their final layer of Catchacan green, need to do the white dags/skulls, hoses, etc. This is just the post-wash basecoat. Much more to be done.
I'm liking these. Cant wait to see the final result.
What exactly is this Paynes grey though? Seems to have done a nice job muting the colours and making it more realistic.
Bit of rust and highlighting and these will look spiffy.
