Ork Meks and Warboss - finished on 5/14/14

 
Customer: Josh Bacon

Project Outline: A couple of custom-built Big Meks, one with a Kustom Force Field and the other with a Shokk Attack Gun, and a Warboss in Mega Armor converted from a Space Marine Centurion.

 

Assembly / Conversion

Up first is the Big Mek armed with a Shokk Attack Gun.

The base model for this guy is a Nob from the Assault on Black Reach set. I added some extra bits to this guy, such as the bosspole and extra shoulder armor, both scrounged from the Stompa kit. I also modified his helmet to have a targeting scope over his eye.

The big ticket item here is the custom Shokk Attack Gun, built from scratch by 'dumpster diving' into my bits box.

There are parts from Games Workshop, Robogear, wiring from Radio Shack, greenstuff and plasticard... all cobbled together to make a really nasty looking gun.

I think my favorite bit is the suction tube into back, where a poor unfortunate grot/snotling is about to meet an untimely end :)

Up next is a Big Mek toting a Kustom Force Field.

This guy is also based off an Assault on Black Reach Nob.

I went for a two-part KFF on this guy, a field emitter staff wired into a powerplant backpack.

The emitter staff is modified from a choppa, with some brass rod, plastic tubing, a Tau drone for the actual emitter housing, wiring from Radio Shack, and a cable made from green stuff.

I also gave him a custom plasticard shoulder pad with some big nuts and bolts for spikes

The powerplant backpack is made from some Robogear bits, with a resin gear, and plasticard exhasts and plating.

Up next will be the Warboss.

Update 5/14/14

Here's the Warboss, all converted and ready to roll.

The base model is a Space Marine Centurion, that's been bulked up using plasticard, greenstuff, and ork bits.

Since we don't know what kind of gun options will be available to a Mega-Armored Warboss in the upcoming codex... I hedged my bets and used everything :)

The amount of dakka on the gun arm should make plenty of noise!

Here's a shot from the rear.

I custom built a powerklaw based off the one on the Ghazghkull Thraka model.

I also armored up the back of the legs, as well as the powerplant.

Here's a close up of the powerklaw.

And a comparison shot next to an Assault on Black Reach Warboss.

The dude is pretty beefy!!

And a final group shot of all the Ork HQs.

Bag 'em and tag 'em.
