Old Stuff Day

Seems there is an 'Old Stuff Day' going around. I haven't been at this blogging long enough to have anticipated it, but I do like the sound of it. I've also been very sick the last two days, so not much new to show, so why not dig into the folders for something old?

I don't have any pictures of the truly old stuff I painted... the first few D&D minis I painted when I had 10 colors and 2 brushes, or the Dark Elf army which was my first project, or the Bretonnians and Wood Elves that followed.

I painted this 5 years ago, so that seems pretty old in any case.  I really do love making beat up ork trukks, shame I haven't had time or cause to do any since then.  This was one of my favorites.







Grinding away with a dremel... good times!

Looks like this started life as a 41 Merc or Ford woody wagon. Damn nice work.

Really nicely done old though it is. Just shows what you can do with bits and bobs

Great work, I could imagine an orc with a massive turret gun in the back!

Absolutely spiffing! Brilliant work Sir! Like you I had never heard of 'old stuff day' so somewhat missed the boat; oh well there is always next year! Have a great weekend and get well soon.

Actually stands the test of time rather nicely! I love the girder on the front :)

Thanks everyone!
Working on Ork conversions is probably my favorite thing. It's just so cathartic to create and destroy in the same action.
