Default Ork/Imperial Guard Valkyrie Conversion WIP (PIC HEAVY)

This is a nice little project i am still working on. An entire thread is dedicated to the whole project here http://www.miniwargaming.com/forum/v...p?f=11&t=23217

the orks have not been primed or painted as of yet. but i'll show you where they will be going They arent glued down yet either, this is all just a rough image of what the completed version will look like.

Well! here it is!!!!


A nice little diagonal view


The butt!


Overhead view


The plants i used is actually Reindeer Moss I got at a craft store.


It's quite dense, the moss, And durable. i through on some super glue (from GW) on the bottom and it holds EXTREMELY well!


I was planning on more of a desert looking base when i saw the moss, but i quite like the contrast in coloration. personally speaking, it stands out more to me


Here's the beaten up, shot, scavenged, dead, Tau Battlesuit. I actually drilled quite a few bullet wounds on the right hand side that you are unable to see at this angle. It's also completely scratched up and warped.


A few grots climb over the dead Battlesuit, the guns from this battlesuit are now on top of the Converged Valkyrie.


Here is a little bit more to show about the actual scale of this model. the Tau Battlesuit lying beneath it.


Can you guess what this is?


That's right! A SQUIG!!!!! YYYEEEEAAAHHHOOOO!!!!


I hope everyone will enjoy this project! i'll keep you all updated!

Well I think it looks great, very Orky, the completed piece will look fantastic.

I especially love the wheels and the base.

It looks good. I especially like your base. I'm horrible at basing, so hopefully yours will inspire me to do more than paint mine. I'm actually in the middle of hacking up a valkyrie too....they are such great models.

Nicely done. Shots are a bit dark but what I can see looks great. +1 Fungus beer for sharing!

Thanks!

Well i finally got around to painting some of this. nearly the entire left side is painted, all of the interior is painted as well as the top structure of the ship! This is extremely weathered, and is about 40% complete (paint wise)
