A Couple of finished minis

Ive nearly finished the yella team and the Grots. I'll post a few guys now but the rest can wait till I do the bases.

So here is Grotsmasha

The Boss Grot Cpt Squig Snotto (Name to be changed)

One of the spannas

The next one is the boy with the magnet arm.

And a couple of grots
I want to make my own bases close to the original GoMo bases so I can fit more grots on the cuttas.
Next project is to build a trukk for the yellow team. I thinking big ute or some CAT machine.

The Yellow team

As I said in the previous post I will be doing 4 GoMo mobs. The Grots (Green) Morkas (Yellow) Gorkas(Red and with bikes) and Diggas (Blue) If I do a fifth team it will be muties and they will be orange I guess.

So here are the few guys Ive started.

The Nob. Grotbasha the 2nd (The first one died damn low roll on the recovery chart)

Next up a couple of Spannas and a boy

Ive had a few boy get arm replacements. rather than modelling them permanently I decided to magnatise them so they can also be used as normal boys in later games.
With power claw

Cutta Arm
With Cutta.

I will do a range of mods as I also have a yoof with a shoota arm.

I hope to have these guys finished in a few days.

The Grot Mob

As I'm back at work now I decided to work on the mobs. So I wont get any paint on the Cuttas till I get back home.

Im going for the pirate theme for the Grots to fit in with the boats. I will do up about 20ish Grots including 5 snots as I seem to go through them pretty quick. I will probably just leave them fairly generic with minimal mods. I think I will build a card for each grot with all his stat much like warmachine.

So here is the crew so far.

The Captain. I think I'll call him Cpt Squid Beard but then I'd have to sculpt a beard (As you can see my sculting isnt that good) So I will leave him unnammed at the moment.
Im thinking of also giving him a Squig Parrot.

Next up is the Banna Wava. He'll get the same treatment as the Capt.

Here are a few of the crew. They will also get a bit more pirate stuff sculpted to them.

And a few Snots. These were like 2nd edition metals. Ive replaced the heads but need to do a bit of work to blend them in.
I should have them done in a day or two and then to get paint on them. I want to do a total of 4 mobs so they will be red yellow blue and green. The Grots will be Kahki with red trim so they are basically my Green team. The current ork mob are yellow. Im trying to do the paint jobs quickly so they will mostly be painted with washes.

Cutta and Lugga

I got myself one of those hole punches I see alot of people with to use as a rivet maker. So I went to town with it making the two Cuttas I will need. Here are a couple of bad pics of them. No wips as I was too busy to take any

The two of them together. They can hold 6 but 4 fit comfortably.
I think the mast is too big so I might swap it out. Not sure what to make the saile out of. Maybe light cloth.

I have made all the moving bits work so the boom will swing around and the steering turns a rear skid.
You mught see the bits on the boom and floor. Not sure what they are called but I will add ropes to it so I can make the boom move. I will also have ropes for the sails as well so they can be raised or lowered
 The mast is damaged to reflect the damage done on the last game I have. Damn Mutie guns take em out every time.

The big lugga with a bit of paint on it. Going for a russian type look so Kaki and red.
