Although I’ve not played any Warhammer at all this year, my mini painting has continued in fits and starts.
A wee while ago I sucummbed to the voice in my head – one of the good ones – and picked up this guy.
The Ork Stompa.
I don’t have an Ork army, and have no intention of working on one, but ever since the Stompa was released I had an eye on it. It’s just so cool.
The is the work in progress as it stands, with a tentative name of The Great Pumpkin, but so far it is coming together nicely. And that’s despite the instructions being the worst of any model kit I’ve ever bought.
A guy here has made annotations to the current instructions. These were a big help.
The Stompa isn’t finished yet. There are banners to go on its back, a shoulder panel for the Big Choppa arm, some hatches, other decorations and some Gretchin (the Warhammer 40K equivalent of goblins).
I’ll put it on the shelf for a week or so while I crack on with finishing the hungry, hungry Tyranids. Then I’ll go back and work on the Stompa some more.
Here are some photos:
