Also my weirdboy now has his base!
Attempting to direct air traffic:
Niiiiice, I love the triplanes you've made
Aha! This is a brilliant concept
It is hilarious. Just don’t be surprised if others call it a biplane. (Snoopy’s Bird was the Sopwith Camel = two wings = biplane.)***
You must rent the movie!! Those Magnificent Men And Their Flying Machines is one of the best films of all time if you like multi-wing, single engine, canvass covered aircraft. You must see it. Cue it up on Netflix, make a bucket of popcorn, put your Ork triplanes on the coffee table, add beverages and enjoy.
Seriously. ^ Those four sentences are Dr. Pendrake’s official prescription.
***Sopwith did make a Triplane. It was the first triplane to be used in combat. It inspired the Germans to build triplanes which led to the Fokker Dr.1.
Brilliant models, made me chuckle. I love the concept, it just screams Orks.
Haha those are SO insane.
True enough... I neglected to notice this difference on my reference pictures as most were of snoopy flying around on his doghouse
I got my pictures of my savage orc boys as well!
Its a tiny start to a Mordheim Savage Orc warband! Excuse the bases, they need more work. Plus they are round...
I got six of them in total, these two could function as the "leadas" armed with a spear/shield and choppa/shield:
Two of the grunts, with spears (stikkas?):
I used a sampling of lizardmen bits on these guys too, as they would not be out of place in the jungles of Lustria:
And lastly two arrow boys:
I want to add some tattoos and stuff, but am too nervous to attempt it
And here are the lootas and the orc savages together!
I hope you like them!
One of them is carrying a Saurus shield!!!!
Sooo good I second this.
After a full day of casting and assembling, the Flying Circus has grown by five more triplanes!
All the pieces prior to assembly:
... and all put together!
On @pendrake 's suggestion and @Lord Agragax of Lunaxoatl 's inspiration, I was watching the Magnificent Men and their Flying Machines will I worked on this project all day. Pretty funny movie! Granted it was an older one, with a ton of Hollywood cliches and a ton of European/American stereotypes, but it was a funny romp
Triplanes Phase 2 is in full swing!
Great stuff. Soon you will have a huge Air Force ready for battle.
Honestly, I absolutely adore these. So inventive and innovative, and not only making some but casting some more as well! I’m honestly not worthy!
Yes Magnificent Men is a very funny film. About the stereotypes, I believe they were mainly done to make the comedy even funnier, especially Gert Frobe’s marching German Officer, who’s probably one of the best characters in my eyes.
I dare you to design an Ork aircraft racing game based upon the film - that’s your extension task!
