Behold Da Kopta Karrier – an example of how my earlier tutorials and guides on Bell of Lost Souls could be used to produce a monster…
It’s been a while since I’ve done an article for Bell of Lost Souls and I thought it was about time rectified this. After a couple of articles devoted to Nurgle (all hail the Bloated One) I decided it was time to return to the the Ork fold and do a follow up article to my earlier ones. My earlier articles dealt with how I went about looting vehicles and covered a step-by-step guide to this process, these can be found with these handy links… One Meks Guide, One Meks…Part 1, One Meks…Part 2, One Meks…Part 3.
The build now progressed by working alternatively on the internal area, the under deck section and the underside of the deck. All of these areas needed to work together with each influencing the design and detail of the other. I couldn’t simply work on one and decide it was finished then move onto the next part. The build had to stay fluid; I adapted the design as I went letting things develop organically incorporating new ideas and changes of heart.
The Mek shed gained a KFF mounted on the roof and a fuel tank for refuelling the Koptas at the rear (along with a hose) Both the KFF and the tank is magnetised.
