I have taken advantage of being on summer break and have been able to spend some solid time in my study building and painting with either Black Library Horus Heresy (currently on Legion) or Doctor Who Big Finish (Just finished Cyberman 2) to keep me company
Following on from the first Stompa I Have finished off another two to complete the mob
The feet of the right Stompa are on 'looted' 3mm WW2 tiger tanks
Next is the Slasha. one of my favourite gargant models, It has been converted using the back tower from a Mega-gargant and a ripper arm from Kromlech. I have also added some extra exhausts, Shoulder plates, teeth round the head, tiling and plates to help it fit in with the other models
Completed Gargant in Bad Moon Colours
Freehand Death Skulls plate as I plan on having some of them in the force.
Gargant Mob so far
In between Gargants I painted up my supply of old Ork Dreadnoughts.
(The rear ones were already painted on pennies so have been painted over)
Ork Boyz painted up, for these i used a similar skin recipe to my Bloodbath Orks (Vallejo Khaki, GW came shade wash and then Druchii violet on the face) which gives a darker look but a nice contrast to the Bad Moon yellow and reds
Top view showing some variation ( after all they are Orks!) just the four Nob stands to go
Looking to boost my forces I have ordered some of the 6mm Skinnerz from Vanguard Miniatures and the leaders pack included a fantastic Ork (skinner) in mega armour which i have painted up as my Warlord
The banner has the glyphs for Manik, Gargant and Moon as well as the warlords own personal glyph, a red crossed spot
The forces of Warlord Mad Eye Moongarr
Next on the paint list is the four stands of Nobs and at least one more battlewagon to complete the unit. I then might go back and finish off the converted Mega Gargant I was going to abandon, because you can never have too many Gargants!
