Painting the Grot Bomb Launcha Mk II

The Forgeworld Grot Bomb Launcha is probably one of my all time favourite models. I already have a workbench feature on that Grot Bomb Launcha however I did get another model of one at GamesDay 2005.

I found the chassis of this one in of the boxes with my Land Raiders.

I gave the model a spray of Citadel Zandri Dust.

Now I just need to find the rest of the model!

Cities of Death

This is from a game we had.

The scenery is a mix of Cityfight, the gothic ruins and Forge World. Mixed in there are some Forge World barricades and Warhammer 40K barbed wire.

Yes there in the middle is an unexploded Grot Bomb with probably one very confused, but very lucky grot.

Grot Bomb Launcha

I do like the Grot Bomb Launcha and my first (and so far only completed) model often takes part in my games as part of my Ork force. In this photograph (with my Skorcha behind it) it has already shot its Grot Bomb.

More often than not though, it does not really do anything significant, even with our house rule which allows it to reload!

I am in the process of painting my third Grot Bomb Launcha. This will take me to a battery of three of them. So far one is fully painted, the other on it’s way.

With the third one I have given the model an undercoat. Some parts were given a black undercoat and the remaining a white undercoat.

The black undercoated parts will be drybrushed with Tin Bitz and Boltgun Metal, whilst the white parts will be painted with a sand colour.

The Forge World Grot Bomb Launcha is probably my favourite model of all time.

Having given my Grot Bomb (from my Grot Bomb Launcha) a base coat of Desert Yellow, the next stage was a wash.

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 the resin 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’s how the Grot Bomb looks when using one of my Wartrakks as the vehicle for the launcha.
