Since the release of the new ork dex I've been brimming with ideas for scratch builds and conversions and having finally started on one I figured that it was time to log the progression. For now this log will follow the creation of a custom wazdakka/warboss on bike but will later cover some larger scale conversions/scratchbuilds. Also there may be some regular old boys in trukks, bikes etc...
The basis for this first idea comes from the halo3 brute chopper. I've never played the game but the bike concept seemed cool and right up a orks alley. I like to let pictures do most of the talking so on to why we're all here:
The basic bike with a few things chopped off:
More parts removed:
I had to extend the chassis to accomodate an engine and some space up top for the big guns so I hacked it in half and put in a spacer and some detail bits. Most of that will be covered up so it isn't anything fancy just yet. Also you can see the beginning of the engine. Plus I had begun work on the tire.
