Ork Fighter Bomma

This project originally started off as a large transport for Epic, find out more here. See the latest updates.

The first job was to remove the "epicising" that I had done.

Certain sections (like the engine) were painted black and drybrushed with chainmail. The cockpit windows were painted black. If I was making this model again from new, I would add cockpit detail as the model does come with a pilot. I had "blocked" in the cockpit when I was going to use the model as a Epic Heavy Transport and with all the putty I thought this will all break into tiny pieces if I try and break it apart.

One effect I wanted was to ensure that the fighter looked like it was cobbled together from bits and pieces and then painted orange. I also wanted to have some "new" pieces that looked like they were from captured Imperial vehicles.

However first I needed to do the edges, and these were painted roughly in black.

These were then drybrushed with Boltgun Metal and Chainmail to give a rough knocked about a bit look. The panels will then be painted orange (though some will be painted Cadian green as though they were taken from destroyed Imperial tanks).
