Quick Tankbusta Update

The 2015/2016 Hobby Season is in full swing!  Now I just need to balance work, school, fantasy football and the hobby.  I have been making some progress on my Tankbustas.  I have been doing all of the base coats and have been more or less keeping to at least an hour a night.  I do have a paper to write this weekend but if I get it done quickly I will squeeze some more painting in.

Dakka Dakka Dakka BOOM!

This is the "test" model.  I wanted to try a few different things with the Rokkits.

Since I have 40 of these guys to do, I am going to break them up a bit by doing units of 10 with different colors for the shirts.  The first group I am doing in Balor Brown.  I am happy with the progress, but I think it might get a bit easier (finger crossed).

Once again my Wife hooked it up for my birthday.  In addition to some awesome T-shirts, she got me an amazing gift:

I was blown away!  Now I just need to learn how to use it.  Looks like I will be watching some tutorials.  Wish me luck!


  1. This tankbursta is really "kool", I need to see the others !! I love his stuff and the rocket on the gun, do you think this rocket can explode on this gun without fire? xD
    Also good luck for the gift ;)

  2. The fun of ork's, but hay if I think it will work then it will work right LOL, happy B-day mate & have fun with present.

    1. Thanks, Frank! Just need to pick up some airbrush paint.

  3. Oooh airbrush!

    It will be a bit odd at first, but the more you use it, the faster you'll get. Make sure to get a mask to protect your sinuses!

    Also never squeeze airbrush paint really'll pop off the top and go everywhere. Yes this is from experience! Love the tankbusta!
