I've always toyed at this idea I could build a respectable Ork Fighta that any Ork Ace would want to fly in, and with all the fighter jet kits cheaper and at a fraction, I can't help but just have a go at this!

The end result, I believe, is the Dakkajet I've made is the ISO 9002 standard in the ork community [a very haughty thing to say...oops]..but hey of course there are many ork generals out there who had built and converted from some airplane kits and perhaps they are better than mine even! Please show them to me !

But for the mean time, this is MINE! WAAAAGH!!~

But for those who don't like to scratchbuild, bash or convert and all that hassle, please buy the offical GW Ork Bommer! Its packed with loads of stuff, and you'll have lotsa left over bits for you to build more!

Now the kit I used is this 1/48 Mig:

It had all the right shapes and curves that screamed "ORK" all over, but the rounded wing tips needs to go.

I squeezed in a Ork body and head into the cockpit with arms or legs but these covered up nicely when you paint everything black and its just his head sticking out.

I then added "teeth" on the front exhaust intake, and scratchbuilded 6 supa shootas.

This was a fairly easy build, I added lotsa rivets and plates here and there, and I shifted the wing tails up to the top of the rudder, the tubes are from bendy drinking straws, and some plastic plates are added :

Some red paint job later :

The ork army is IMHO the only one that allows some humor on your models..bad spelling like FEW [Fuel] and kill tallies, and this jet even has a PEE tube ..LOL

Thanks for viewing..this is now on the runway, ready for take off!!

Vampire Count Black Coach

Going to show you how I build my Vampire Count Black Coach.

The wagon is the small house from the Garden of Morr...
The wheels are from Lego! I was dam bloody lucky to have found it selling for lose at a local toy store for like 50 cents each, the cairnwraith is from Reaper miniatures.

I decided to keep the stems at the horses foot and cut slots at the bottom of the base to further secure them and make them stronger.

I wanted to buy the coffin with the vampire bit from ebay but decided the poorhammer in me will make a cheap foam version of it, as its going to be dark and you can't really see

It's going to be dark inside, so some shape on the coffin is just enough if you can't resist peeping...hee hee...

Chaining up the horses to the wagon is the toughest part as I've pinned it and connect it all the way to the wraith's body to show as if he's holding to it.

The curtain is actually wavy cardboard ! The 2 lamps are bits filed to appropriate size and glued to the side.

Black Coach done!! Now onwards to priming and painting !!

My Bretonnians need a trebuchet [actually 2, lets see I can muster enough determination to build another!], but the official one is expensive, and as I have many bits and plastics lying around, might as well build one!~

Any seasoned Bretonnian players should be familar with

A fantastic site where all the knights and generals of Bretonnia gather and discuss tactics, modelling and everything Bretonnian !

As I scoured through the postings, some of the dudes there have made their own trebuchets from scratch and even cast them !

Rafael de Bois et Guilbert (Rafael) 's trebuchet

So, first of, I have some square rods lined up according :

The square rods are cutted up and glued, with a thin strip of plastic glue in between the rods with two studs to resemble metal works with bolt-ons.

 Two were made.Make sure the dimensions are the same so they can fit later.

The counter-weight are made from light weight foam! They are about 1cm thick so two pieces are glued together with PVA and cut to good shape.

Some spare foam are cut to be glued to the base later to resemble rocks [ammo] lying around for ye peasants to load them into the trebuchet. The "leather" rock holder is from a thick card, later to be soften with wet PVA.

The main pole was from a disposable chopstick, with a bit of a jeweller's chains attached by hanging a paperclip to it. The counter-weight "rock" are glued with 2 strips of cardboard from those postcards.

A shield shape was cutted from those free postcards and glued to the rock counter-weight too.

The rope were some kite strings but it wasn't thick enough! So I twist 2 strings together by using a drill gun, but before that, I wet them with PVA glue so they'll stick togther!

After assembling all the pieces together:

It was quickly brushed with black acrylic as a primer, then painted up !

The finished product :

Onwards to lobbing rocks at the enemy !!

Hello ! Finally my own Wargaming and hobby Blog! [and probably other stuff]

After dambling for almost 20+ years playing with wargames, DnD, warhammer and 40K, I've finally done it! Create a blog to record all the stuff I've done, and share with people [hopefully], the stuff I've enjoyed and made.

Let me share with you my journey of buying, painting and making models, minis and along the way, I'll show u how I make my stuff and WHAT NOT TO DO, there by wasting time and money and make the hobby more enjoyable!

One of my WIP warhammer Vampire Counts Army.

Made up of a Reaper Miniature vampire, A heroclix figure and a Mordheim mini as a necromancer.

A vampire count made from High elf Dragon lord with a ghoul's head:

Mixing and Matching minis in your Warhammer or 40K games? Why not? You may not be able to play in tournaments, but you can play with you friends! That said, if going to tournaments and sanctioned games is that important, you can by all means collect "Official" minis.

Me, I'll like to cut back a little and do what's enjoyable, no need to Your way or the Highway, Its My way....LOL

Recently I've got to converting stuff and having a little fun scratchbuilding.

Want a model Chimera for your Lore of Beasts spell but can't afford like USD41.25 for the real deal?

From a pack of cheap [SGD5.90 /abt USD4.70],

Into a Chimera :
More on that later!

BUT dont get me wrong, GW's models are great and all, and if you guys [and some gals, where are you] can and afford it, by all means get the real deal, GW stuff we all love and hate.

But if you like a little quick project on a budget, I'll show you how I did it my way, and hopefully you'll enjoy it as well.

I'll also show you some of my WWII stuff, model kits and toys I've accumulated [the studyroom is becoming a warehouse....]...tsk tsk

Meanwhile, thanks for viewing !
