Ship's Crew

Front Deck Layout

I’m still slowly working my away around the warship adding details. Looking back at my previous post I realised I hadnt posted anything about the state of the front deck for some time and since there have been several recent additions in that area I thought I would add a post for that area.

Here is an overview shot of the port side.

Here is the front deck with all of the characters and equipment positioned. At the moment the are just pinned in place, once everything is painted I will glue them on permanently.

On the right hand side there is a free-standing kannon being operated by a couple of grots, one of which is busy bringing a shell up from below. The other grot is shouting for assistance for the fallen ork lying wounded by the anchor winch.

A very recent addition is the stairway leading up to the Zzap gun deck and the associated railing.

A Stormboy is coming out of the tunnel under the walkways ready to follow his colleague up the launch ramp. Above him is another Stormboy negotiating the walkway, with recently added left hand railing, as he makes his way up to the catapult.

The Stormboy captain is bringing up the rear, as he leaves the superstructure shouting his orders to his departing squad.

Super Structure

Gatling Gun

So another little job that’s been lingering on the to do list for some time… the other firing position on the roof of the superstructure. I decided to go for a nice chunky Gatling gun, operated by another of my old Bad Moon ork boyz.


Port Hull Viewing/Firing Slot

Having continued the armour plating on the port side towards the rear I decided that there was an opportunity to create an opening on the taller hull sides at the stern.

Here is the basic construction.

And here it is after adding armour plating detail.

And finally I pulled a few bits together from the Ork Nobz Sprue to create an Ork using a telescope to peer out of the opening.

Port Side Turret

Port Side Turret Detail (cont.)

Armour plating details has been added to half of the turret so far with various bits of damage and shoddy ork workmanship. I’ve also been working out the pose for the turret occupant with parts from the Ork Nobz sprue.

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.
