Its been about 6 years since I first really got into Warhammer, and this will be my fourth 40k army in that time. The first three were all stock armies, with either minor or no conversions. So I decided to start converting and see where it left me.
What better army for that then Orks?
That being said, I've borrowed a great deal of inspiration from Synapse, whose Bad Moons I recommend everyone look at, if nothing else then to turn green with envy (proper color for a boy, any way).
My first Meganob:
A comparison shot with the Warlord and a Space Marine (my room mate's Crimson Fist volunteered to stand in). Note that my Meganob isn't on a base, but Ghazghul is.
I was using one of the Nobz from the Black Reach starter set and a great deal of plasti-card. My biggest problem so far has been getting the rivets to sit properly. I've resorted to using a pair of tweezers to get it to work. Making them is also something of a pain.
Apologies for the picture quality. I don't actually own a camera, so all pictures will either be taken with my computer's built in web-cam, or my cell phone. Those above were from my cell phone.
All comments welcome, good or bad, as I'd like to improve on these guys with the next couple ones. My plan is to make about 30, so I can run big or little squads as suits my fancy. Hopefully each will be unique.
