Countless cuts on my thumb later and we have some combatants on the reaver base
Here we have the heavy flamer team flaming the doorway, one ork taking the full flame and roasting and the other (one leaping out the door) will have his ass on fire hence why he is holding it, I thought this was a nice comic relief to what is otherwise rather brutal imagery
These are the boyz rampaging up the road, the nob at the back directing the boyz to where the fire is coming from. The two that look like they are stumbling are the two that are/have been shot by the heavy bolter. This was sort of inspired by the Dawn of War opening movie, fast forward to 0:44 mins and you will hopefully see what i see.
Was important to get all the lines here perfectly in sync, heavy bolter pointing at the 2 ork being shot, nob pointing at the heavy bolter and all the orks that are aiming guns at it, any slight misalignment and everything looks wrong, I think I managed it, however will have to wait until everything is painted.
This is the view from the heavy bolter end of the street. There was also the inclusion of a random veteren with a shotgun behind the pillar ready to give any orks some buckshot lovin.....I love my bitz box, it is a veritable treasure trove of bits I forgot I had.
And the heavy bolter team, was a pain in the ass trying to get that lying correctly so in the end iI took the view of bugger this and put a sheet of corregated plasticard as a "bed" for it....problem solved, had i thought of that at the outset would have saved myself 1/2 hour or more. But what is that.....is it an ork with a stick bomb.....oh noes! Although it seems a rather one sided narrative with orks getting boned left, right and centre I have added a little detail like that to give the impression that things could go very very wrong very fast
I also decided to add in another nob made from the new flash gitz make so much nicer nobs than actual nobs
I now am waiting for some kneeling ork legs from Kromlech so i can add in a couple of shooter boys so give a little more weight to the ork mob. But whilst I wait I think I will actually start to paint the ground work.
