Advanced Technique: Laser Engraving

I saw this and had never thought about using this technique.

Very interesting and something to consider for making glyphs and other detail parts. This has promise.

Old School- Mekboy Dragsters

In the old ork codex one of the rare armies that most people never played against was the all buggy army. I definitely wanted to run one and I wanted to use the Epic mek dragsters as a template. I was going to have 27 armor 10 vehicles in the army and it would have been fun. I wasn't going to make 27 individual vehicles so I wanted to make a casting friendly template. I went through a few versions until I saw the dragster made by a fella in Canada. I tossed aside my own efforts and copied his design that I subsequently made a mold of yielding these.

As you can see, there is no engine, front end, or weapons. I would have to make all those myself resulting in very different looking vehicles that all seem to be made from the same base. All of these have had much more detail added.

These pictures are almost 4 years old. But I promised myself that I was not allowed to put up any new pictures up until I got everything old posted. So here you are.

Secret Santa- Big Mek Zodbolt

In one of the more recent Secret Santa exchanges I mentioned that I'd like a heavily converted big mek to represent the made up character Zodbolt, the alter ego nutter of a mek responsible for most of my creations. Great work. The fine rivet and glyph detail is very nice and something I feel I need to challenge myself to do as well.

Also included was an ogryn gone ork. He hides his un-orky features.

Secret Santa- Deathcopter

In my first secret santa exchange I received this wonderful deathcopter. Pictures complements of the gifter as these were before being cast into the mail stream. It did not take kindly to transport and arrived in several pieces. After repairing it, it took a dive off my work space, I work standing up with a desk top at 55 inches or something, and sadly never recovered. I've always been amazed with the ability of ork players to make anything from, well, anything.

Battlewagon Commission in the Wild

Way down in the second post, the Secret Santa Battlewagon, I mentioned sending two battlewagons off to replace one that was a bit too big. Here they are, complements of the waaagher who commissioned them and took these photos. These are based on the Lungbursta template without the gun tower put on and with a few tweaks in positioning the hull plates.

Yes, those are feet on the deathroller.
