As you may know I'm really an ork at heart so this is truly exiting times, what with the first new ork codex coming out in Mork knows how long - not to mention all the snazzy new models!
I've always loved the piratey-themed freebooterz so the flash gitz were a must-buy. Here's my first git made using the new kit:
The snazz-guns seemed a tad oversized even for orks so it was shortened creating a more compact, chunky design. Still about the same size as the git himself though, which gives you an idea how huge these things are if constructed straight out of the box...
I'm going to mix 'em up with nobz to get some variation - their kombi-shootas will make great, more reasonably sized, snazz-gunz with some bitz added from this kit ( also nobz are more or less half the price...)
Great to have you back! Hopefully relocating went smoothly enough.ReplyDelete
Awesome work on that Flash Git! I am glad you decided to pare down his snazz-gun, the normal ones are way way too large (even the strongest of orks would struggle with such a weapon...) I also like your inclusion of the flintlock pistol on his waist!
I can't wait to see where this one goes and what you do with future members of his squad.
Good to see you reporting back for duty, soldier ;)ReplyDelete
Seeing you play around with the new Ork kitz will surely be a treat. I hope you won't take this the wrong way, since I am such a huge fan of your work, but it looks like your hobby abilities have skyrocketed during your INQ28 projects and since you painted your (admittedly very nice) Ork army, so any greenskin models you do now should surely be off the charts! Watching this space with bated breath ;)
No doubting the new Orks fit the older range well, and I can't believe how well the metal Shokk Attack Gun converted over to plastic, but like Adam pointed out, those Snazz Guns are extremely large, even for an Ork gun.ReplyDelete
Its always nice to see stuff from you though Mr Vader, and I don't doubt another cracking paint job is in the offing.
I'll try to up my ork-game on this one Kraut ;-)
I quite like your shortened snazzgun, could you briefly run through the conversion process?ReplyDelete
To me it seems you've chopped off the barrel where the two rectangular gubbinz meet, but what about the handle? Is it meant to be a fold-away or deliberately at that angle?
I've also just noticed you put the Gitfinder on the gun itself and not his left shoulder. Nice!
