Found the Ork Warbike Rider

Ork Warbikes are ramshackle devices created from as many parts as possible, designed and maintained by the Mekboyz to fulfill two important Ork urges: to move as fast as possible and to make as much noise while doing so.

This model is an original Ork Warbike from Gorkamorka, so has a fair few of metal parts. Originally after sticking the model together I gave it a white undercoat. I then painted the metal parts black. Having recovered the Warbike from storage I painted part of the bike with Snakebite Leather constrast paint. For the bodywork of the Warbike I used Blood Angels Red contrast paint.

I found the rider, whose driving arm had fallen off. After cleaning the join of old glue I glued the rider back together.

I had given the rider a black undercoat, thinking do I keep this, or respray with a white undercoat.

I used Leadbelcher on the front forks and the rear exhausts.

Still more to do.

I then used Tinbitz on the tracks.

In storage the bike has lost it’s totem and the driver is now in bits (again).

An original Gorkamorka model…

This model is an original Ork Biker from Gorkamorka, so has a lot of metal parts compared to the current (yet old) completely plastic kit. After sticking the model together I gave it a white undercoat. I then painted the metal parts black.

Here is the bike complete with rider.

Grot Cutta

I originally bought this model for my Flintloque army.

It is a Gorkamorka Grot Cutta.

I am intending to use it with my Warhammer 40K Ork army as an alternative buggy.

The model originally came with two rear rubber tires, I decided (as it was a fantasy napoleonic army) to use the WH40K metal wheels. I have kept them as I think it looks better that way.
