Having used foundation paints for the basecoat of the Ork Rokkits I then painted them with normal citadel colour.
It seems to work as advertised, which is nice.
I converted this plastic Ork to carry a Rokkit Launcha, you can see the earlier stages on my workbench feature.
I have added some more detail and highlights to my Ork with Rokkit Launcha Conversion. I highlighted the strapping around the body of the converted Rokkit Launcha
At this stage I am finishing off the painting, as you can see the teeth need a little more work.
Using highlights to emphasise the strapping. I also highlighted the rocket with Boltgun Metal to differentiate it from the Launcha (and to the spare as well) and added further highlights to the Codex Grey uniform of the Ork.
Basically the conversion consists of using a Shoota and sticking in a grenade from the Stormboyz set. I also used one of the Stormboyz heads.
Orks with Heavy Weapons Conversions using plastic components to make Orks with big shootaz and rokkit launchaz.
In my previous post I showed the metal Orks with Heavy Weapons.
I have also done some conversions using the plastic models and various components.
Here is a rokkit launcha based on my previous conversion which uses a standard shoota and a grenade from the metal Stormboyz sprue. It is next to the metal Rokkit launcha Ork.
I have also convered some Big Shoota models. The left model uses the Big Shoota from an Ork Warbike, whilst the middle Ork uses two standard Shootaz stuck together. The model on the right is the metal Big Shoota Ork.
Here are the conversions undercoated.
Next stage is to paint them…
I have made some more progress on my Ork with Rokkit Launcher Conversion.
I have painted the *uniform* in Codex Grey. I have drybrushed the base with white paint and I have added some detailing.
Still some more work to do.
The conversion uses a standard shoota with a grenade from the Stormtroopers set stuck in the end.
