WOOT! Already an Update!

Got a wip Stormboy and wanted to get some C&C. Next up will be painting Da Shark!

A note first. I didnt have a clue how I would make handles ( I was going for a sort of spy type helicopter backpack) and instead had some wire and decided to make it so they hooked in to the Orks Brain!!!! A mix from a Dok and Mek if you will and lets the boy keep both hands free to the most krumpin! LMK What you think.






Thanks!
