Happy Chinese New Year And Also Some Pics Of Another DakkaJet

Heya all and welcome back to the webway!

As a Chinese Malaysian, I wish all the readers a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year and may you guys have a good year in both business, health and wealth,  and not to mention for our dear hobby!

On that remark, I have been a little busy a while with my orks during the lull in the relative visiting and festivities, and somehow while I was making my second Stompa, I somehow build this dude instead. He is a rather monstrous aircraft and indeed due to its size I will make him my primary Dakkajet of awesomeness.

The main issue I have with this dude as well as the other Dakkajet is the matter of making his flight stand and also the flyer base, which will be a project in itself.

Anyhow, time to get back to getting the red packets that can become the funds for my 40k armies!

Completed Stompa and PIP Dakkajet.

Heya welcome back to the webway!

I have finally completed the Stompa and man I will say that this is the largest model that I have ever build (scratchbuild at that!) and painting this beast is a whole new challenge in itself.

Here are the unpainted pics of the Stompa. I could not help using the idea of Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' on my stompa and thus I modeled its Titan CC weapon with a wrecking ball.

The basecoat really helps to make things fit in perspective, and reaffirmed that this monster is real.

 I was bored, so I decided to put the Stompa on my head and it fits like a hat.

And now I proudly present the completed Stompa.

The joke works, and I like how Orks can do all of this nonsense and making it rather fluffy.

 I would like to thank Darren of Wira Games and Hobbies for helping me with the airbrushed skull logo on my Stompa. Without it the Stompa will look very different.

And now I am going to my next project with the Orks; Dakkajet. Made it out of even more plasticard and garbage and I somehow managed to get a MiG-23 Flogger-like aircraft somehow.

I will be updating even more soon enough! See ya all soon!

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu....and Here's a Stompa

Heya all and welcome back to the webway!

It has been a stupid while since I have updated anything in this blog, but that is what I get for being a Human Resources Executive (It is a challenging job and I like it, but it does burn my time I used to have for the hobby). Nonetheless I have not stopped in the hobby side of things as I am now really appreciating my hobby time a lot.

What does it all mean? That means I am seriously allowed to go crazy for assembling some stuff without a care. I have already procured three Taloi and around 20+ Harlequins for my own Dark Eldar madness pursuits and decided to assemble all the remaining Wyches and Kabalites in sprues for future nonsense such as an Apocalypse game. 

Speaking about Apocalypse, I was asked by my gaming group to become one part of the Ork Waargh!!! that will be themed around the 3rd War of Armageddon  with the other part of this Waargh!!! being Mr.Chaos of Internetz fame (Man I love being able to be buddies with such a talented madman. In order to get this Waargh!!! all proppa, I have decided that I will complement Mr.Chaos' orks with my own scrap-build madness and allow our side to field a Stompa mob!

Here's the progress for my first stompa, and with the exception of the close combat arm and the necessary chips and grazes I believe he is as complete as it comes. I affectionately call it 'Big Bertha', and I had forgotten the joys of assembling models until I made this stompa using all the nonsensical bitz I have stored in my botz box and also using unwanted things to make this Stompa.

In a way, thanks to this Apocalypse battle, I have found my passion for my Orks once more!

Will be updating with some Orks, as I find my Dark Eldar has reached a certain threshold of evil that players tend to look at my Dark Eldar with a 'Oh god, that army again....." and in many ways I have also burned out on my Dark Eldar a little.

I hope to see ya the next time round!
