Being on a creative spree I have decided to finish my latest project, something which I had a hard time deciding what eventually is, untill you people gave me a revelation. I present to you Mek Gitfixa on his deff-jetbike.
This model has started as a project more than 10 years ago. Yes, you heard that right. It has been sitting on my bench on various stages for more than a decade. It originally started as a count as deffcopta, back when they were first introduced as a unit choice. I wanted to field some but it was impossible to find a model since the only alternative was the original gorkamorka model which was even then extremely rare and oop.
I had always a great thing for conversions, especially orky ones. Orks were my very first Warhammer army and it really got me into modelling and converting all sorts of waky vehicles and individuals. So I decided to rummage my bits box for suitable bits to create a deffcopta model to use in my games.
The main model I used was an old Warzone jeep model (I really don't remember what model though, I will make my research and I will edit this article so keep an eye on this space, unless someone out there finds out earlier so please comment below if you remember :) ). The jet packs are 2nd edition ork pulsa rokkits, the chainsaws in front are Catachan saws from the Catachan Sentinel set, Rokkets are from an 1:48 figher jet kit and various bits from the ork boys sprue, includng the Mek boy itself, with sculpted googles to add character. There are various sculpted parts in the model to integrate all bits seamlessly in the final model.
I went with a typical Evil Sunz paint sceme, staying true to the mythos that Red ones go fasta, a machine like this must definitely go faster than anything else this Mek has ever created, although it will probably kill him eventually. I have tried some flame patterns and checkers both freehand and transfers to add to the final orkyness.
So there you have it. My first finished ork project for a long time, and I hope definitely not the last. I would love to hear what you people think. If you have any questions concerning the overall conversion process I would be happy to help so feel free to hit me with anything in the comments below. As always I would love to see your votes on CoolMiniOrNot
Hello everyone, I know it's been a while since my last article but as always life had other plans leaving my hobby aside.
Trying to get my creative juices flowing once again, I have decided to finish a really old project of mine that I never had the chance to finish. My Deffcopta conversion.
Posting this on Facebook last night, a friendly commenter pointed out that it looks more than an orky jetbike more than anything else, so I may eventually go with that option. Any possible suggestions are more than welcome in the comments below ;)
The model is based on an old Warzone model and lots of various orky bits and gubbinz. I am going of course for a full old school evil sunz paint scheme.
The model is still a WIP, but you can get an idea of where I am going with this. I would really like to hear what you think.
Lastly, you may have already figured out by now the changes in the website layout. The site is also a WIP but I would also like to hear your comments so far.
Another post, another month passed and life has once more kicked all my hobby planning in the nuts... I am currently in the middle of a full house renovation and this has consumed all my hobby time AND my hobby space.
Being a creative person though, I can hardly stick to the norms so I decided to make the most out of my current situation.
I have decided to pe parted with some of the models of my collection mainly because I want to invest on some new hardware for my workshop (more on that on a later post ;) ) and of course because these are models I am definitely sure I won't be doing anything with them in the future so I guess it is only fair to have someone else be happy to own them.
These are the first two items I am putting out for sale. I have decided to avoid ebay for the time being, and try to find a buyer throught more conventional methods. So here I am posting them here first so as to get the opportunity to buy them if interested without those pesky extra ebay charges.

The only thing that is missing from the original packaging is the insert which can easily be found (check the links below)
I tried to include as many shots as possible of the whole item, if there are any specific requests I would be happy to comply.

I am really happy to announce that I have just finished this years Dreadtober Challenge from The Broken Paintbrush.
After a month of (not so) hard work, I managed to finish a model that I had it sitting in my closet for the past 4 years (at least). The motivation and inspiration that everyone gave me with their wonderful participations was really outstanding and I can't wait to see everyone's finished models.
Without further ado then, here is my finished addition to my ever-growing Death Guard army.
The model has been made using a similar palette with the rest of my army, trying to keep a uniform theme. I am glad I achieved that, bearing in mind that the previous model I tried painting for this army was aeons ago, I am glad I can still remember the colors I used.
That said, I tried using some new techniques, mainly with the airbrush. The model was sprayed various bone and white tones to create the main shadows and highlights.
It was then heavily weathered using a variety of brown and black inks and glazes to match the rugged and venerable look that I love creating on my Death Guard models, some WIPs of that stage you can see on my previous posts.
The model was finished painting the wonderful resin base from Models and Minis in metallic tones.
I could have added more details on colours and techniques used but I am short on time right now, if there are any questions I would be really happy to answer them in the comments and of course I would be more than happy to hear what you think!
Finally, don't forget to leave me a vote on CoolMiniOrNot if you have the time! :)
