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!!

This was made sometime ago, but I guess I will share it here with some of you guys who had those toy cars lying around, could'nt afford the crazy prices of a GW one, so...

why not build one ?

This used to be a cross country toy car which unfortunately I've lost the pic of it, but any buggy car of about the official size will do. This one has some nice fenders infront and the wheels have those rough ridges which is nice and screamming WAAAGH all over...keke

The original body of the vehicle had a metal frame, which I've unscrewed and toss it away, leaving the bottom part with the wheels, which I've cutted it and shortened the body, helded together by hotglue:


First of all, you need lotsa and lotsa plasti rods and plastic really if you know what are the ones you need.

For this project, some 5-10 mm round plastic rods [shoota] , squares and 1-2 mm rods [for rivets] 5-10mm plastic cards [armor plates] will do:

The armor plate infront consists of 4 parts: 2 small squares and the the bigger square in the centre, and finally a long, shorter piece for supporting the 3 pieces together. Rivets were glued at the side [see above].

I made some spare shootas as you will never have enough of dakka...

The design can be simple, as shown above.


My friend gave my some old edition Fantasy Orcs, but rather than let them lying around hidden in some forgotten boxes, they are recycled here:
The body of the orc was cutted apart, and arms repositioned.

Glue 2 shootas together, added another Ork gunner behind, and the whole piece was primed black and after some easy paint job, viola! you have a Ork Warbuggy!

The one on the left is a rokkit launcha version, which consists of multiple tubes glued together. Its nice as Ork tech is shoddy, so you can get away if you are not too neat...har har...
I've made 3 of these and now they are off to the battlefield ! 'ERE WE GO, 'ERE WE GO!
Thanks for viewing !

Ogryns from Ogres

Originally published in plamo in 2009 and Warseer in 2010, reproduced with some minor editing here for your reading pleasure : )

Anyone who play the tabletop version of Warhammer 40K [made famous ala Dawn of War] will know about the Imperial Guards..have started this game waaay back when I was in highschool [20+ years now u know I uncle level one..hehehhe..

why..what's alot of uncles one ok?!... = =!!]

Ogryns are basically the 40K versions of ogres, only called abhumans who are not so clever, but nevertheless recruited by the Imperial Guard to fight wars against Chaos [or Xenos ..ala Aliens..the fluff is so thick, novels and novels are written about will not go into 40K literature...

The official ones are metal and costs 11.25 pounds [about S$23] a squad of 6 will cost u like $138!!  Update : They cost more now, dont they?

So, in the modelling community, folks who dont wan to blow their noses and their wallet [so they can spend on their children la, dog la, mistress la..oops..u get wat I mean]

Anyone interested can go to their website to learn about it...

Do you want know more?
Games Workshop

Anyway a pic of the box [note box art copyrighted by Gamesworkshop]

First, I need to make ripperguns for the 6 fellas..

[Ripperguns are sturdy, easy to use automatic shotguns so Orgyns can just aim in some general direction - the enemies'..and like the old saying goes..if u keep shooting, maybe you'll hit something...]

This is the body of the ripperguns...made from plastic rods and plastic blocks...repeat 6 times later..u either one to shoot yourselves..or just go buy the real deal...]Em112

One thing about scratchbuilding and/or kitbashing is your bitzbox [the box where u have spareparts] must be sipeh "bah" [translation : very enough]...
The ammo drums are stolen from a wrecked LVTP..
It has 20+ of the wheels..heh heh..but never fear, the APC is not has some other projects...
Included below are some rough plans for anyone interested in scratchbuilding their own ripper guns:

Conversion of the ogre body..
Added plasticard as armor the community it's called "40K-fy"...
Backviewof one of them..with ammo pouches added..

The first completed 2 are painted as trial...
The Back view..the one on the right was pale flesh with a flesh wash..the one on the left was layered with dwarf skin tone and highlights AFTER the the effect is better.. The grenades are scratchbuilded..the red one is Krak and the green one is frag [one got better armor penetration, one got a blast radius but lesser kill effect...go figure..both have it's own use in the tabletop game]

Berets are made from green stuff...spare shotgun shells lined the bandolier are plastic rods with just some gold paint at the lower part of the shell.
After painting all of them, these palm-sized dudes are ready to roll into battle..recommend using Vallejo Game Colors as the adhesion is better, so the paint dont wear off too easily [ still WILL chip if yr wife scratch it with her freshly manicured nails....]

Who says only Orks smokes Cigars??

The squad leader [known as the Bonead or Bone head], as he is a little bit smarter [know how to use binoculars]....

"FRAG the fraggers! Now!~"

"Er..boss!!!, is it da red one..or da green one?" [bullets rechocheted on the sides of the wall..going Whoop whoop whoop against the mudwalls and plazinc walls...]

"*%#&^$!!.. DA GREEN ONE!!!!!"

....and his men went ahead and threw the red ones anyway.

Scratchbuilding a Hydra Flak Tank

This was done a few year back, luckily I managed to rescue most of the pictures from Imageshack!

Here's some of the WIP and completed pics, its very tough because of a lot of repetitive work involved, but the results are satifying as hell!

You'll need a chimera or basilisk kit and....

You need lotsa plastic rods, lots and lots of plastic rods [and placard]:

The radar dish is a magnet button actually!
