    Work has begun on a slightly more "futuristic" scale: the Luftwaaagh!

    Its hard to make out, but that is an ork pilot. :troll:

    The base of the casting are all parts from the ork deffkopta (death-copter to those not fluent in orkish) with two big-shootas mounted on the front above the engine block.

    Some test color schemes. Eventually if I can cast as many as 10 (two units of 5) then I can have an entire flying circus of orky biplanes!

    Here is the test plane basecoated, this one will probably be Evil Sunz red to start things off.

    This project should be a nice addition to my modest ork force, which has languished in ork-limbo since page 3 of this thread.

    Lots of more work to do! :vulcan:

    I did more painting last night to bring this dude (and his high-flying ride) to life:

    This ork plane is a huge departure from anything I have painted before, all that red and yellow flames! I am used to painting more green. :lurking:

    I have to add/fix more checker-patterns and metallic paints, and some mud for the ruined-city base. The base was a quick job; I have the normal deffkopta base but I wanted to add a little more height to the mini. My idea is to get a bunch more planes and have it look like they are all flying over a ruined city-scape together. The plane is magnetized to the base for ease of transport.

    Then I want to learn some rust-paint techniques and weathering for the planes wings.

    Future plans/ideas:

    10x Ork biplanes (two units of 5x deffkoptas)
    Ruined building terrain
    Farmfields/trenches (mimicking a WWI-esque landscape?)
    Ork bomber (WWI German “Zeppelin-Staaken R.VI” bomber)
    Maybe an ork zepplin

    Looks awesome! I love the concept and the execution. The pedant in me would like to point out, however, that it isn't actually biplane. It's a triplane. Biplanes have two wings, triplanes have three.

    And I thought biplane was used to refer to all kind of planes with multiple wings and did say nothing...

    Yep... you are 100% correct, I have been working on a triplane this whole time and it wasn't until your message that I realized my mistake :banghead:! Thanks that gave me a good laugh :D
