…and a little bit more.

Paint disaster aside, I spent some time painting a little bit more of my Ork Stompa.

The main problem with the paint was twofold. The first problem was with my Citadel foundation paints they were quite old and had dried out. Second problem was with my Citadel washes, which had gone weird and no amount of mixing could sort them out.

Ork Stompa Feet

Having not really done much with my Ork Stompa for a long time… I have recently started to get going again with painting it.
Here are the feet of the Stompa.

As they will be mainly hidden by the large body of the Stompa, I am going to leave them mainly black.
I am going for a predominantly red colour scheme, but I am using various shades of red and some brown for the effect. I am aiming to have something in the end which will be similar to the GW paintjob.

Well as I said something similar…

Ork Stompa Gantry

I have been thinking about more Ork scenery for some time. When recently my son broke his toy crane I was inspired to take the broken section and use it as part of a Stompa Gantry. I have also used parts from an Ork Trukk, an Ork Battlewagon and Imperial Accessories. I have used foamcard for the base and the majority of the model was stuck together with a hot glue gun.
Since my previous post on the gantry I have added some more bits and pieces and some stones to the base.


There are some grab rails from the Ork Trukk kit, as well as an engine on the base. I have also used some of the brass from the Warhammer 40000 basing kit.

Ork Stompa with Forge World Bitz

At GamesDay 2010 was another chance to see Forge World’s excellent Ork Shanty Town diorama.

This time though Forge World had added a lot of their new models, including an Ork Stompa, one that had used some of the Forge World conversion kits for the Stompa.

Though I know it will be some time before we see an Ork Gargant from Forge World, it certainly isn’t outside the realms of possibility. Forge World make a BIG model once every two years. Last year, in 2009, ¬†we saw the Reaver Titan, next year 2011 we see the Eldar Phantom Titan. Therefore in 2013 we will see another BIG model. I have to admit my money would be on a Warlord Titan, but an Ork Gargant is certainly one possibility and if we do see the Warlord in 2013 then I think we would see a Gargant in 2015… Can I wait that long? Probably.

So what about the size? Well the process that Forge World use is the same one that companies like Rolls Royce use to make full size resin copies of their aircraft engines, so size isn’t really an issue, selling them certainly is though. Forge World only make models under the assumption that they will sell them. Models that don’t sell find themselves resigned to the mould bin of history.

So would I buy one? If I could afford one, then yes I would. Could I afford one? Probably not.
