Grot Bomb Launcha Mk II

The Forgeworld Grot Bomb Launcha is probably one of my all time favourite ideas and was really chuffed when my mate Simon got me one for my birthday. I already have a workbench feature on that Grot Bomb Launcha however I did get another model of one at GamesDay 2005. It is my intention to get a few of these now and to build an ammo trukk for them.

So how did I make this one?

This one I am aiming to do differently with as my previous one a converted driver, this one though I want to do a different track unit and extra gubbinz and baggage on top.

The driver uses the Deth Kopta pilot. This next stage shows the main resin parts and wartrakk with a white undercoat.

This is the firing ramp complete with Grot Bomb.

I gave the Grot Bomb a base coat of Desert Yellow.

Having finished the base coat I gave the bomb a wash consisting of Chestnut Ink, Scorched Brown paint (which helps remove the gloss of the ink) and some water to thin the wash down.

I gave the launch structure a basecoat of Chaos Black. For some reason it has warped a bit, not sure how that happened, but I think as it is quite Orky, I am going to leave it as it is.

Here is how it could look using a Wartrakk.

I gave the driver a black undercoat.

The launching mechanisim was given first a drybrush using Tin Bitz before a second drybrush using Boltgun Metal.

I painted the fuel tank using Tausept Ochre.

I started to give the main body a basecoat of dark brown.
