Balangaz's GB 66 entry - Ork Lookout Tower (DONE!)

Post by balangaz » Sat Aug 29, 2015 7:04 pm

Hey guys!

Since it's only 3 days until it's over and I'm trying to push myself into finishing a display board for my orks, I decided to get a piece of it and get it finished and painted by the end of the Build!

It's a lookout tower that'll stay on the back of the board, just used for decoration, probably with a Big Mek on top of it or a group of 5~10 lootaz.

It was like this when I found it, and the basics of the top was glued but without any finishing touches:

I finished building it but it's still missing a ladder to reach the top, and primed it, but the dog got to it and decided that cork, magnets and plastic rod sounds delicious. Here how it is now:

I'll try to think how to get people to the top, and paint it by the deadline. Wish me luck!

Looks like a solid build. Also as to your dilemma, maybe a short elevator shaft pulled by grots? Or using on of the pulleys from the Trukk wrekkin' ball? good luck!

I decided to go with the elevator and pulley idea. This is what I came up with:

Can't really see it all that well but when it's all painted up it will be easier. All I have to do now is send everyone to bed, and it's painting time.

Spent some time after lunch painting and here it is. It still needs some checkers painted on it but I won't be able to do it before the deadline, so I'çç call it done.

Th epictures came out overexposed because of the lighting so i'll try to take some more at night, maybe with some models for scale!

Thank you, this was the first time I painted (anything) blue. I hated it, but I woulnd't know it if not for this GB!
