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.


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.


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.


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.


Now the family photo looks like this.

Here are some pictures of a painted prototype home casting I made from the green for our currently running Bizaza Frog People Kickstarter.

He is pretty shiny so I had to take pictures outdoors to get a decent image.

I couldn’t resist mucking about. 🙂

Bizaza Strong Spawn

So I made these guys with the help of my missus, who made the weapons and many of the details, the talent of this woman is pretty obvious when you consider that these are the first pieces she has made.  There are another 4 WIP, but they are not ready for their close ups :).


Bizaza Strong Spawn

We will get these guys and their 4 buddies finished and run a quick funding campaign to get them made and sent out to interested parties.

I have set up a Facebook group to manage updates etc.  Please join us at:

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.

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 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.





A WIP of the build:



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:


…and I’m spent. 😉

Battle Company WIP

Posted in 40K Epic Scale, 6mm, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on October 5, 2013 by theottovonbismark

Battle Company infantry is starting to take shape. I have gotten into a flow with painting the marines now getting the bulk of the work completed on the assault and tactical detachments. They just need some armour highlights and detailing now really.
