Wazdakka Gutsmek, a Trukk, and Boyz

     Here is my take on Wazdakka. I love his fluff and wanted an excuse to make a bike similar to Kaneda's from the movie, Akira. It was based off a Deff Kopta, with random bits and two 2-liter soda bottles as the back wheel.

Part list
- deff kopta with the missiles and rotors chopped off
- Nob box power klaw
- Dakka Jet pilot head
- Deff Dread boss pole
- Guns from the Killa Kan and Deff Dread kits
- Killa Kan jaw plate, which is the top checkered piece
- Evil Sunz logo from the Nob box
- Exhausts from the Killa kan box
- Squashed goblin from the WHFB Giant box
- Back wheel is 2 2-liter drink caps
- Back wheel skirt is the top part of a land raider sponson and chopped up deff kopta rotors

     Wazdakka may look weedy for a boss, but he is only strength 4, like a Nob, and I wanted the bike to be the focus of the model.

     This trukk has been sitting around, so I decide to expeiment with it, as it is my first painted ork vehicle. I really enjoyed it! I decided to man-up and free hand some checkers around the vehicle and found that the more that I relaxed and had fun with painting, the more orky it got!

     31 more boyz down. The speed painting tactic really makes painting these guys easier, but they still took me about 12 hours to complete, where as Wazdakka took me about 3 hours to paint. Thus, that is really fast at ~23 minutes a boy.

Here is the recipe.
1) Prime with Army Painter Demonic Yellow
2) Wash skin with green wash twice (Biel-Tan Green)
3) Wash skin with brown wash once (Arthnac Earthshade)
4) Bask in the glory of it all
     I am very pleased with the results, especially since they will die in droves....
