Orkys get a big boom gun!

Hi it's Corben again

Today I want to tell you about my tank I have built. My dad gave me a basilisk tank for me to convert into an ork looted vehicle. A piece of my tank was missing, so somebody sent me a part that I needed all the way from Africa.

My dad gave me a few bits to add on to make it look funky. My dad helped me to do the tricky bits like clipping the top armour off and adding the end of the barrel.

My dad has arranged me to have a session with the manager of games workshop so he can teach me how to paint it. It is 8th birthday in 3 weeks and I am hoping to get more orks.


(Big shout out to Da Masta Cheef for sending the bottom of chimera chassis all the way from America! lol. Also, big shout out to Ed, the manager of GW stoke who's agreed to do a masterclass session on painting vehicles, it turns out that he's a bit of a vehicle painting expert!)

lol, I was going to ask: and which part of Africa was that???

Marshal Argos said...

Looking good there Corban. Love that barrel there!

Zzzzzz said...

Oh Masta Cheef, you get everywhere !

Mel, I've got spare O. R. K. bitz, drop me an email with an address and I'll send them on.

That looks great! Keep up the great conversion work. Best of luck to you on the painting lessons.

I really like that tank, you've done an excellent job on it so far. Happy birthday for when it comes around, and I can't wait to see how you paint it.

That is one awesome big 'un, well done sir! Spiky and proper, you will beat your dad with it every time. If you don't, it's because he is cheating.

Soz for the late reply guys, we've been away on holiday and life has been a bit manic lately.

Corben has hit the sack as he's had a very busy birthday today but he was made up by your replies guys - Thanks!

@DMC - LOL, I could have corrected him but it was way funnier this way. Thanks again mate, you're a star for sending them over.

@MA - It is impressive, even I'm a little envious mate.

@Zzzz - Doesn't he just, he's well travelled that man! If the offer's still open then that would be great mate, email me at

@JD - Thanks mate

@M7 - Isn't is just. I had to hold him off on the spikey bits as he wanted it like a hedgehog mate

@CS - Thanks, he got your birthday wishes at just the right time mate.

@YY - Oi! Don't let out my secrets! In all seriousness, I'm gaining new respect for Orks since I've started playing against someone who plays so aggressively. Corben is all about getting stuck into a fight mate

Anyway, thanks again for helping make little man's day, no doubt he'll be posting about his presents soon enough guys.
