433 - Old Skool Nork Deddog and Centaur W-i-P Teasers

UPDATE! [22/04/14] I've now added some slightly higher quality pics, having found the camera again. Please find them appended to my original post, below...

I've lost the camera, but I thought I'd share what's on the desk at the moment (besides my beret stormies, of course [link]). Sorry for the painfully poor quality pics.

First up, I've dug out my old, old Nork Deddog conversion. Ignoring the old base paintwork, that head is terrible, but I like the model:


And secondly, here's the first of my two centaurs (again, very much W-i-P) artillery tractors for a brace of arty pieces sent by Zzzzzz. It looks far better in the flesh, trust me!

The details inside are fun to paint...
- Drax.

New pics: [And yes, I know the colours clash. What of it?!]

    1. Thanks, mate. I'll be adding a little to it when I''ve worked out what.
      Check back later for some better pics - I've found the camera!

    1. Technically this isn't a Nork model (as far as I'm aware) - just a very old Ogryn which I converted (rather painstakingly, many years ago now) into salutng (left hand of course) in homage to the Nork Deddog-rescues-officer-from-chimera-wreckage story from the old-old Guard codex.

  3. Does that guard have an RT helmeted head?

    Nork needs a better pic mate so I can see his head better.

    The Centaur is an ugly little beast, but like a pug, that's what makes it so visually appealing. The bright unit markings are a nice contrast.

    1. Not RT sadly - just a modern vehicle crew head. Better pics are coming - watch this space.

      And I have to admit I absolutely LOVE the centaur model - especially the assault variant!

  4. Nork looks like Swiss Tony.

    1. Love that flat top!

      Centaur looks even better as well.

      Good stuff mate.

  7. For the chance to own my very own cats arse I might have to flick GW an order!

    Those old Ogryn models have a little bit of charm to them for the nostalgia, but otherwise don't stand up well to age. I'd probably rate it higher than the second ed versions with the old Viking Horns, but I reckon I prefer last editions metal versions the most.

    I do love the Centaurs though - they are such a plucky little vehicle. I always had a soft spot for the DK Grenadier assault version that FW put out though could never justify opening my wallet fr one.

    Top stuff as always Drax.

    1. ^ yup - I agree with everything you said there, Muppet...and I consider myself very lucky to have received the centaurs as a very generous gift!

  8. Bloody love that old Nork sculpt, cracking work there sir. Centaur is also looking excellent, I like the touch of the different coloured wires along the inside, superb

    1. Thanks, Kieran: the centaur really is a dream to paint. I had to resist the urge to turn it into a tankette...
