About the Project

The Formula Ork Racing Championship is my brutally violent, ludicrously fast racing series for Beastsnaggas. Warhammer 40,000 Orks don’t enjoy peacetime, so when they have a break from smashing Space Marines or Imperial Guard, they’re honing their war skills on the race track! For a series of videos for Orktober 2021, I’m creating dioramas that explore the question: "What do Orks get up to when they aren’t at WAAAGH!!!?"

Marking out the diorama board and adding the spectator areas

I started with an A4 sheet of 2mm polystyrene as my baseboard and marked out the curve of the track with a Sharpie.

I used natural DAS clay to create the raised spectator area for the goblins and snotlings, and Tamiya 1/35 walls to build an enclosure for ork spectators on the far side of the road.

Track and spectator areas fully painted and minis added
