Wonderfull job. I mostly see very clean paintjobs  on them. Often well painted, but a bit cartoony compared to this one.
It really gets across what the raging inner fire of the bloody handed God would do to it's outer metal shell. Makes it very intimidating.

yes - superbly well done.

Impressive collection! I am fascinated at the wealth of colour and how you still managed to make it look as one army  :-*

Are these yours or for a happy customer?

@hubbabubba: Yeah, I'm rather happy with the army turned out myself. :) Sure, you can e-mail me any time!

@Ultravanillasmurf: Cheers!

@Warboss Nick: Yeah, I think it works rather well. :) I really dig the look of this army. Much more work than anticipated or armies of one strict colour scheme, but the result's worth it. These are for a happy (i got this confirmed :P ) customer. Me, I play 40k once in about 6 years at this point, and I got way more armies than would be warranted by that frequency of games already. :D

Heyhey, here's a little something for my own collection: Food booths by Micro Art Studio. Relatively cheap,  but rather work-intensive to paint actually. But now they're done and they should work nicely for all sorts of sci-fi and modern settings.






What do you think, madams and sirs?

@Andym: Thanks very much! It was quite a ride, but now they're all at home and have been received with open arms. :)

@aliensurfer: Too late! I'm all full of "Dino Burgers", "Emperor's Finest", "Tastes like Chicken!" and "Whack Wrapz" (all working titles :P ).

Right, here's GW's Mek Workshop!

Look, dorky me hung the circular saw in the upper left by its cable rather than the handle. Oops. The circular saw and the drill aren't glued on, so no problem there.

It's been a widely welcomed fact that the person who drew this model up on a computer made a little funny by adding GW's mold line remover to the workbench. Of course I painted it accordingly (yup, I own one of these things since a few months ago), even wrote CITADEL on it and all of that. The pad/mat on the workbench of course has to look like cutting mat too.

These heaps of scrap probably are even more useful than the Mek workbench. Slap all of that stuff on the table, get out the vehicles you converted for Gorkamorka back then, get out the Gaslands rules and have at it!

Or do something else you enjoy with it. Who am I to tell you what to do. :D



I'm a bit torn on the design idea behind this set to be honest. I mean it's not a Mek Workshop, is it. It's a workbench with a wall that's just big enough for the workbench not to fall over. A workshop is a garage and has a roof. Reminds me a bit of what people who critisise Lego for what they do nowadays with their City stuff. There's a ton of detail on that workbench, but for a terrain piece.... I don't know. Online I've seen someone stick Orky bits on Renedra's Ramshackle Barn, and it looks way more like a proper workshop than this wall.

I'd say the piles of scrap and the barricades makes this set worthwhile. I'm sure though that someone who's got the inclination could take the workbench as is apart and put it into a building could turn this into a pretty cool piece of terrain.

Just a few thoughts on this set. What do you think, Madams and Sirs?

It seems more an accessory set to me, just they don't make anything to put it with that is 'Orky'.

@aliensurfer: Good point. The model reminds me of a model set I used to own when I was younger:



Basically the same thing, isn't it. :D Bar for the barriers and other cover terrain.
But yeah, I very much agree with your observations on the model. When I was sitting there, looking at the finished piece, pondering, musing if you will, I thought they could do modular Orky things such as this one which fit onto the Imperial building parts they produce. As some sort of Armageddon situation: Orks overran a city and immediately build their own infrastructure into it to keep the campaign going or repurpose Imperial infrastructure for their needs (in both Armageddon wars they basically kept the imperial factories running, keeping the surviving workers on as slave worker force). GW could release that and thus incorporate that Orky range into the existing imperial one. It would be like 'upgrade parts'.

Earlier today I put the finished model back into its box for storage (good thing is that this one's pretty easy to store at least).
