I always like grab-bag threads over threads for each mini. It's easier for me to say, "Oh, that's in MekBoyAndy's thread, now what page?" than to search threads by author to find it. That's an amazing build, love it. Two questions: what did you use to detail the treads? Half-round strips? And who makes the metal treadplate you used?


I just read your entire painting log, WOW, amazing.
Your right about grab-bag threads and I'll rename it now.

I used this old plastic sheet that looks corrugated. I cut it the tracks from this by cutting down the groove at the the width I wanted for the track and then cutting each track from the strip using my cutting pad to measure. In this picture the strip is to the left and the individual tracks cut from it are on the right. Not pictured is the rod I cut to shorter lengths as spacers.

The treadplate material is.... wait for it.......
the backing for Dulcolax tablets.
Yep, I looted a laxative :D

Lax-tracks for the running gear. :D

Once painted the treadplate look is not as pronounced, IMO it still works.
I'm calling this done for now.

Lovely paint job that enhances the great conversion.

Can't wait to see more of your painted figures- I might need to take notes and try to imitate for my own Goff's.

Cheers

James

Outstanding! Have you thought about putting some passengers on to show off the scale?


I will definately add passengers, I just don't know when. Orks on foot will be a seperate frenzy.


That goes for this Battlewagon as well. If it does not get a wierdboy tower it will get filled with boyz;

I added some orks to them to show the scale. If I make dedicated passengers they will not be on their own round bases and there will be more.
I may magnetize a wierd-boy tower just for ease of storage.

I'm not a fan of the ork infantry minis and intend to make new ones. Epic never really did the orks justice IMO.

edit, I also think this BW is too big which is why it is becoming a character mini.
