Good work man, those are coming along nice.

Im not sure if you plan on using rivots or not. I know Trev tried a bunch of techniques and I think the best ended up being the simple cutting f chunks from rod and gluing them on.. but Im guessing your not going to be wanting be cutting 1000 rivots for each truck.. hehe..

the best way to do easy uniform shaped rivets is goto Michael's and buy beads; you just gotta make a divot in the model for the bead to fit into and then glue them in; its how alot of good converters mass-produce homemade heresy marine armor and various other studded/rivot models. just look for ones that are flat like cylinders instead of orbs and that should save lots of time

I was definitely planning on painting rivets, but I'm not so sure about glueing on 1000 or so like Robyn said No I might try a few to test the feasibility. Good suggestion with the flat beads from Michael's, thanks!

Or... lazy mans method, take a ball point pen, press a divot into the plasticard without puncturing it, on the opposite side.... drumroll.... rivot!!!

Ive seen a few people use beads.. or actually the little rounds pellets that fill up a brita filter. The only problem, especially with ork stuff.. is you need so god damn many it would take forever to drill a bit of a countersink, than glue them in.

They do look awesome though.. especially for marines and imperial stuff where the smooth rivot looks better. I think Orks benefit though from having that clunky bulky chunky rivot..

That being said, when you said 1000 per vehicle.. whatever is the fastest.. Smile Toms technique sounds pretty damn quick.. Smile

I've eaten 4 cans of soup and the rollas are basically ready. I've done a bit more detail on the wagons as well. I've put handles on the hatches, sights on the shootas, and a few glyphs. I've also gotten a bit of convertin' done on some of da boyz:


Da wagons wif rollas.


A close up of da boyz. Warboss has a sweet freebooterz hat. Painboy a custom urty syringe, and the mek with KFF has a unique power klaw. The painboy has given an unfortunate fiend of Slaanesh a "seein' to!"

AWesome.. thats a fantastic looking cap hes got.. and the rollas are looking good.

Its funny, because that claw reminds me of old yarrick.. although new yarrick has a modern ork klaw.. modern ork has old yarrick claw.. it all come sback around. Looking good though.. i definitely like it.

you want fast easy rivits ?
use T-shirt goo . It takes a little practice , but once you get the hang of it , i bet you could rivit up all those wagons in like 45 mins.
