    Cheers

    Where I was once a helicopter engineer in the military, I am now going to be a health care assistant, in a dementia care home . As you can imagine, I have a lot to learn but after just one 'shadow' shift, I knew straight away, that I had made the right choice .

    It's been a while but this project doesn't disappear... it just keeps changing (as is usually the case)... especially when some new miniatures turn up . This is Big Olaf:



    He's not been officially attached to the army yet... but there are certainly stirrings in the warp (EBay) and this may well end up as a very individual character model, with a particularly loyal body guard .

    The Dwarf is from here:

    Big Olaf's rear armour seams a bit on the weaker side!

    Great work.

    "Big Olaf" was a bit of a clue :

    Big Olaf has a friend, you know... it's a Bulgryn bodyguard!



    He started life as this:



    and is quite big:





    I got him from here:

    Inso,

    I have to ask, is the Bulgryn bodyguard called: Nork Deddwarf?

    Looks like a nice simple conversion to attach the shield.

    Cheers,

    Re: The Squats of Inso's Reach

    It will be a proxy Bullgryn... but will actually be a Squat who has befallen tragic events that have made his body stop working... so he is plopped in an armoured, robotic suit to go and fight in (utilising neural connections, similar to that used in Titans). As a result, it will have a suitably Squat name .

    There are links to both Big Olaf and the Dwarf Lord (the one I have converted into a Bullgryn by swapping the axe for a GW slab shield) in the same post as their photo (links are at the bottom of each post). Ones from Hasslefree Miniatures and one is from EBay.

    Re: The Squats of Inso's Reach

    Big Olaf now has a friend...



    Snorri the Giant.

    Snorri glared across the field and saw the warboss, bold,
    And as he glared, his anger rose and then his blood ran cold.
    He knew the Warboss must be stopped, before he reached the gate,
    So his ancestors infused with him and filled his heart with hate.

    He leapt from off the parapet, with axes in both hands,
    And as he charged the Warboss, he was joined by allied bands.
    The sound of clashing steel rang out, when the enemies first met,
    And in the guild's librarium, began the bravest story yet.

    Snorri fought the mighty Ork, with fury rarely seen.
    His bravery, the kind of which, had rarely ever been.
    He brought the monster to the ground, and cleaved off his raging head.
    And he stood upon the Warboss corpse as it lay there, clearly dead.

    Alas his triumph was short lived, as Orks are hardy foes.
    And though its head was clearly gone, it's axe, it slowly rose.
    And with a final death strike, the blade met Snorri's head.
    And Snorri dropped down on the field, the Squat was surely dead.

    Snorri's lifeless body was, removed from off the field.
    But there was the slightest heartbeat, and the hope he could be healed.
    All the guilds around the lands were called and asked for aid,
    But the best of all the medicae, failed and were dismayed.

    Poor Snorri was alive in mind, but his body was a shell.
    His arms and legs were useless, he felt he was in hell.
    But a Squat called Jorgen Bursmith, had an idea in mind.
    And he built some special armour that would leave his woes behind.

    Now Snorri, he could fight again and he made sure that he would,
    And his fame was too important, so his guild ensured he could.
    But his size was far too great now and he needed to be seen,
    So the guild made him a warden and he was sent to guard the Queen.

    In time, the legend of the Squat, in massive armour spread...
    Of the cybernetic warrior, who refused to lay down dead.
    His name "Snorri the Giant", with shield and gun in hand,
    Who defends the royal family, the Guild and all the land.
