I took the whole week off?

Looks like I took the week off and have done nothing with my time.
It's been cold rainy crappy weather the shops too cold.Primer isn't happy when it's cold, neither is glue. I worked on a model I got used last year a really beat up Deff Dred and I started to build my 6 plastic killa kans I got in trade, also from last year. I'm a bit disappointed with the week not being a planed week off. So those plans will have to wait for another time. I have a lot to do next week.
And I am planning to get a game in next Saturday. Maybe against Space Wolves.

I guess I'll end this with some pictures of that Deff Dred.
This guy was covered in Mill Putty. Some one ws doing...lord know what to it. It had an Ogre Kingdom head stuck on it. I got this sight unseen, picked up for me by a friend, from a gamers Flea Market last year. It was missing bits, as you'd expect.
I found Dred bitz on ebay and scooped them up.

After starting the Killa Kans for the commission I though I should texture the base just the same as those Kans.

Looks like a hat!
The whole top/front was chewed up and covered with putty. So I found parts to cover it up and look...more correct.

That arm was really glued together and I couldn't do to much with it at all.

Base coated brown!

I really like the added Green. I also tried to paint this one the same way I painted the other Dred from a few years ago.

That Grin says it all!

The Big shootas were chosen, bought in my bitz order, just because with 6 dice he may actually get 2 or 3 hits and maybe cause 1 or 2 wounds. which feels he's doing something...other then missing his shots!

did you notice the blue paint sneaking in?
His banner pole skull had a blue stripe of war paint, just like the head/face bit.

The plate dangling at "crotch level" is from a Battle Wagon kit.
I added that just to add the appearance of bulk to the model.

The right arm is from a Killa Kan the ball socket is smaller then the larger Deff dred army, upper arms. I added a little Green stuff.

And that's about it. He's ready to stomp off and Krump gitz.

More madness to come!
Thanks for looking!

And....the week is over! ( Where did it go!)

What a crazy week! This week has just flown by. I don't know for sure what I have even done.
The list so far.
Based and primed. Working on the ruble and junk idea. It's a work in progress.
Primed and based 10 shoota boys, 1 Boy with Rocket, 5 Nobs, 1 War Boss, a Mek and 4 lootas as well.  These are all ready for paint. The Killa Kans have some Metallic started.
Building up the bases on 2 Meks with KFF,1 with SAG, Snikrot and a cool Nob/Boss with his arms folded. Still working on their bases.

The scrap launchers came in but are still in the bag at this point.

I am also Starting to paint the clothing, armour and weapons of all the Nobs, some 30 or 40 of them...Too many to count! I expect next week to be a lot like this week. I plan to base all the deff Koptas and prime those bases. I am also hoping to get started on the Stompa on Tuesday or Wednesday next week. 

Thanks for reading! More to come!

Week of the Nobs.

After last wees sloth I have been looking for ways to be more productive. Couldn't prime models yesterday due to humidity. I rounded up the box of Ork Nobs ready for paint and have begun to get going. I'm trying to make their skin very interesting. Not the more flat layers I have done on da boys so far. Although the important part is that everything matches.

I am really liking how these are coming out. 
At the end of the week I have 6 or 7 more to flesh out.  They should all be up to 8 or 9 colors by next week. Nobs need a little more attention then da boys. 
Thanks for looking. More nobieness next week and some other stuff too!

Thanks for looking!
