I got my special Mail order only nob with the banna 2day.
1st thing i noticed is that he is GIANT, as in he looks to be next in line for warboss.
IVe done some size pics for ya with old banna and new and a boy.
He's a whole head taller than a normal nob, he's based on rubble but even when you campare with out he is still giant, and as for next to a boy...

There are loads of cool details like his head is wired to his power claw to control it, and the banna is a power weapon as it has electrical bobinz and bitz goin to the blades at the top.

The title of this thread is ill-advised. Nice model though.

That is one HUGE nob, and I should know! :D That is probably why this model is a "special release"- it was sculpted just a bit too big(i.e. the scale is off). Still, it is nice to have a big mean "Waaagh! Banner" Ork Nob. Thanks for the size comparison pics.

Well, it fits the fluff. The bigger the Ork, the more killy the Ork.

All the modern ork figures are too big, imo.

Why?

Ork's grow bigger everytime they duff someone up, so it fits that Ork Nobz are gonna be larger than Ork Boyz?

Or is it 'other race inadequacy' syndrome?

you have all noticed that it's standing on a rock and not hunched over like most orks?

Thanks for the pictures, is the mini a single piece or are their multi bitz? If so, what are the separate parts? The shoota hand is obviously separate, but what about the head and waaagh banner?

Can we get a photo from the back/side?

I love that bionic arm!! I am hoping they release the bits seperately so I can order it. How many bits is the model?

That is one massive nob. Looks pretty top-heavy, though. I would reccomend a 40MM base.:evilgrin:

Its parts are head, shoota hand, power claw hand with banna, and body.
He is on a rock BUT when you put a nob next to him he is still substancialy bigger.
Not at home atm so no rear pics but its pretty standard, straps holdin pads on, strap holding pants up. Sword in holster. Underside of boots are dtailed with grips n spikes.
A cable goes into the back of his head and down and out his arm pit to the power claw.
His head seams strange though.
I cant oput my finger on it, it looks tiny on other nobs and other heads look big on this, but when next to another its same size?
One of them things.

I recomend buying it, even if you just want the bits. Great fist, great banna. Kool shoota. The body could be used as a warboss varient conversion. And the detail on the head is great.

Good mini, IMHO.

I don't get the joke, however - is nob a slang word for male genital?

Yes..but then again in English pretty much anything can be.


Looks a nice model and does seem chunkier all over than the comparison models.

Sounds like a nice amount of detail on it too. So the klaw is wired into his head eh ? :)

A nob is actually an ork sergeant of sorts.

Love the model! Looks more at home as a war boss though.

Yeah.. at least on this side of the pond.. (North America) Knob (the kind you'd find on a door) is also slang for penis.

yeah and in North America, "****" is also slang for playing an instrument badly. i used to live in ireland, so when my music teacher used "****" in the North American context, i was just a wee bit surprised.

**EDIT: and of course, it's censored.


Nob is HUEG!

And "polishing the knob" it is a euphemism for masturbating. :D

Yeah, I'm at a loss. Can you replace one of the letters so it can get past the censor well enough for me to at least fathom what it's supposed to be.

I DO like the model, not tht I have a good look at it. I wasn't going to get me one, but since he's so 'Uge, I think I'll have ta put in an order.

And, on the 'Nob' thing? Any one ever notice that the Knoblar ubit champoin for Fantasy Ogers is called a Groin Biter?

Look it up if you want.
