Hybork Jump Trooper 1

The latest addition to my growing force of Hyborks.  When I designed the Hybork bits this was one of the things I had in mind by way of applications.

Hybork Jump Trooper 2

The base kit is the Stormboyz from GW.  It is probably my favorite kit of all the plastic ork kits available and is full of interesting bits that fit with the daredevil nature of the Stormboy trope.  The jump packs are very customisable and allow for a lot of variation in the look.

All I needed to do was to attach my Hybork arms (with the hands chopped off and replaced with some fun GW weapons) and my favorite Hybork head to achieve this model.  The Stormboyz ship with 25mm round bases, but these are on the small side so I have mounted him on a 30mm, which is sufficient to keep him balanced for gaming.

The colour scheme was inspired by the famous Stuka WWII German aircraft.  I am working on another 4 of them to bring it up to a game ready unit of 5.

 

Thanks for looking, until next time…..suk da vapourz ov mi contrails stoopid oomanz!

Hybork with Powerklaw

Posted in 28mm, Orks, Uncategorized, Warhammer 40K with tags on July 24, 2016 by theottovonbismark

Here we have another Hybork, this time armed with a powerklaw from the GW Ork Nobz plastic set as well as a missile pod from the GW Ork Lootaz set.

I currently am in the process of ordering another run of these Hybork 32 piece sets, so if you are interested in getting yourself a set let me know soon and I should be able to sort you out.  You can find out more here: Project Hybork on Facebook.

ClawHyborkC2

I have retained the classic colour scheme for this one with little use of green colour.  The Iron Jaw serves as a cyber replacement, so I took the opportunity to cover it in some blood.

ClawHyborkD

I have been experimenting using Army Painter Purple Tone and Blue Tone to smooth out the contrasting highlights, using it mixed with Air Caste Thinner to dilute the glaze.  I find them to be fantastic products that give a nice streak free finish.

ClawHyborkD1

Lots of use of Army Painter Dark Tone and Green Tone especially on the powerklaw.  The copper areas also got some Citadel Verdigris on it as well as Ryza Rust and Flesh Wash.

Hello Sailork!

Posted in 28mm, Genestealers, Orks, Sculpting, Space Orks, Warhammer 40K with tags , on December 10, 2015 by theottovonbismark

I made this nautically themed Hybork for the Oldhamer Legacy Crew 2015.

His name is Pop-eye the Sailork, credit for his naming go’s to Niibl on the Oldhammer forum.

Most of him is my sculpt – with the exceptions being the weapons and one hand which came form the Citadel Space Ork ranges.

His armament is deliberately Oldhammeresque, being armed with the original plastic Space Orks chiansword and a 3rd Edition Brian Nelson chainsword.

This is my own sculpting with the hands chopped off and replaced with weapon hands taken from GW Ork plastic kits.

They are compatible with standard ork/ork fittings and are multi part models with separate legs, arms and heads.

I plan to do a private crowd commissioned casting run for these guys soon, organised via Facebook.  Let me know if you are interested in getting in on the action.

The Sweedork Chef

Made this chap for an upcoming game of Brewhouse Bash with Mr. Saturday and Cheetor.  Savage Orc plastics is the base for this orkification of the popular Muppet Show character.

“Da Red Ferret” – Shadowtrakk

Posted in 28mm, Da Red Shadowz, Orks, Space Orks, Warhammer 40K with tags on July 28, 2014 by theottovonbismark

I plan to bring a force of Red Shadowz to BOYL 2014 to take part in some GorkaMorka.  “Da Red Ferret” is a scratch built shadowtrakk taken from my regular ork forces and given a good pimping up for the event.

Da Red Ferret

It now features reinforced armour, reinforced ram, a new engine, a pintle mounted big shoota and a shiny new red paint job.  The red paint was immediately given a large amount or weathering using my newly acquired rust and corrosion Games Workshop technical paints.

If the orks with the leather fetish don’t kill you the tetanus might!

The Red Ferret is inspired by the Action Force Hyena.  I was certainly torn between going for a cleaner toy like style of painting and weathering the shit out of it using my new technical paints…needless to say the new paints won out.

The pintle mounted gun has been magnetised for easy transport and interchangeability with other weapons if the whimsy takes me to make a rocket launcher option.  There is plenty of space to fit a couple of models into this vehicle which while not necessary, is a useful feature for immersive GorkaMorka play.

Decals are all hand painted and then ruined with overzealous weathering for that authentic orky feel.

Zardoz (1974)  is one of those movies that burned itself into my mind as a kid and it is not difficult to imagine why with imagery like this…

…Sean Connery in a wedding dress, yes indeed.

Expurgation of something like this from my mind calls for my calls for some Warhammer 40,000 catharsis.

 

ZARDORK

ZARDORK

Zardork has been built using the Savage Orc plastics from Games Workshop.  The base is a (edit, thanks Cheetor)30mm round base from EM4 miniatures and was kindly donated by Cheetor over at Sho3box, cheers dude!  The 30mm is a good fit for the wide stances of some of the models from the kit.  I hacked off any extraneous details from the model, reposed it and then did some green stuff sculpting to get him to look like Sean Connery in one of the most bizzare costumes in cinema history.  The gun is from the plastic Necromunda Goliath gangers in case you were wondering.

He is wearing a big ass ring which although not in the image above is from the movie none the less.  You will just have to watch the bugger if you want to know what that is about, perhaps more than once!  The ring is real plastic, just like the movie.

He took me a fair while to make, but I think he was worth the effort.  Naturally now I feel the need to make an orky version of one of these for him to ride around in:
