Ork submarine by billking Ork submarine by billking
This is my latest work. I have been messing around with this piece for almost three years. Finially got around to finishing it. Of course in doing so I changed about 60% of the prior work to get it to this point; (read, I ripped off the front, the back and the top) X0

 This is a "BIG" piece,  It is...

 21.75 in./54.5 cm long,
 13 in./ 33.5 cm tall,
 4.5 in/11.5 cm wide.

 It is almost completely scratch-built, with only a very minimal use of any real bits. The basis of this model all started with a cheap child's 'shark' sand/beach toy.

This is also the first ship model I have ever made, kit or otherwise. It was a nice change for me and I think I will have another go at it. I'm thinking Tramp Steamer/Ork Surface Raider. I am also thinking I might work a little faster on the next one:)

Anyway, dat's my Ork Sub.

I'll post more pics in a couple of days.

That piece of metal looks ded propa for an ork submarine. Like the rust and the weathering a lot.
Only drawback in my eyes is the smile on the bottom, it would have looked better on the front, ready to take a bite off enemy ships.
On the other hand it kinda looks like a mean sawfish now, so either way works.

Hi, thanks for the comments. Funny you should mention swordfish. My first concept was to make the front half of the sud into a stylized S/F. I had three rows of "blades" in front of the smiling mouth. Later I got to thinking about it, and decided the sub would be very difficult to control;diving and such, so I removed them!

Of course Ork machines don't really have to be engineered correctly to operate! They seem to get away with just about anything. In the end, I went with the standard single diving planes.

The  toothy smile came on the original found item that sparked this whole build. It was a 99 cent kid sand bucket beach thingy, I picked up at a Walmart.

Next build I think it is going to be a bit more "unfriendly" :)

cheers

I love this! Three years well spent for this end result. Great textures on the rusted metal and a really nice paint job all round.

"We Ork live in a Greenskin Submarine..."

Just have to modify the lyrics a bit and the song fits all the better.

Great model as always.

Does it come with inflatable squigs inside of it so it's not stuck just in water?

It is really, really cool, thought the face is kinda creeping me out. I may have covered it with something.

It's pretty well detailed, and it first perfectly with the orks (How come they're blue, BTW?)
