Wheel House Update

The wheel house has been receiving some attention over the last week, although its still very much a work in progress I wanted to run through the modifications to date.

The top half of the front wall has been extended this now slopes in the opposite direction to the original and sits on the structure that I have added to the deck. On the roof two circular sponsons have been added, which will be the mounts for some Anti-aircraft artillery… more on that shortly.

The doorway will lead out on to this raised area, and I’ve added a couple of cut-outs which will have shutters and be used as firing positions.┬áThe ork pictured will be holding one of these shutters up as he fires.

On the port side I have cut out an access doorway which will lead on to a raised walkway halfway up the wheel house. I’ve also blanked off a couple of the original windows.

On the starboard side the opening is much larger… this is going to be a Killa Kan workshop/hangar. Note also the stairs leading up to the gun platform.

I have begun building a flak gun for the starboard roof sponson. The barrels will be mounted two on top of two. I also found an old Bad Moon boy which will work well as the gun operator.

The Helm

There’s not been much in the way of progress on the main ship build recently. But I’ve been tinkering with building the helm. The wheel itself is scratch built from bits of styrene rod and card. Whist the ‘helmsman’ is a converted Grot Assistant… my first attempt at using Green Stuff.

The Ork Warship

First Crew Members

An early Christmas pressie sees the arrival of the first crew members of the Ork Warship. An Ork Kannon and its 2 Grot operators. They will eventually find a spot on the deck.
