Well, to supplement my Battlewagon list, I am needing three Meganobz, so I ordered a set of the AoBR nobz, and set to work.

I have made some more progress over the last two days, including the engine block and starting on the iron gob.

I am going to have one with a PK, one with a two handed hammer and a 'Storm Shield' (will still count as a PK) and one with a wrecker ball from the Ork trukk.

One will also have a shoulder mounted rokkit launcher.

Its such a simple idea, I dont know why I didnt think of it.

And just because I dont want to open up too many new threads, a few pics of my bitz box bashed Big gunz. They count as Zzap Guns.

And now for a further update. I have pretty much got the weapons down now, I may still swap the chainfist out for the wrecker ball. I think the only thing I really need to worry about now is detail.

I hope this does inspire, as previous threads have inspired me, and I have shamelessly taken bits of other peoples ideas, and expanded on them with my ideas. I firmly believe in Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Could we get abetter look at the last nob's left arm?I think they look quite fantastic so far, just a little more "roughing up" and micro-detailing work IMO

Upon closer looking, I can see the magazine is going to need pinning on.

Great work so far! A simple idea, but not too simple. and those rivvets on the boots look promising. I especially like the chainfist and the thunda-hamma MANs, but the kombi-skorcha on the last one is kind of odd. Maybe it should start right after the elbow. It seems to be set to far IMO. The cybork/iron mask heads fit great with these MANs, so do the BS exhausts. Could you please show us some photos of how do the nob's backs look? And good work with the zzap guns. Again, simple but cool :) Awaiting more progress! Cheers :cheers

Waaagh! Shawass - plundering the galaxy with unpainted models since 2006 :D

I like the Zzap guns, but I'd make one suggestion- cut the tips off and rotate them 90 degrees, so you have the usual angled and going from top to bottom, not left to right. :thumbs

I must admit, I am still not happy with the chainfist. I might try making the fist a little more square, otherwise I shall remove it and add the Wrecka Ball (which came from the Snakebitez thread, shamelessly nicked). I agree that the Kombi Skorcha is not sitting right. It is too far forward. I may try underslinging it to his arm (rather like Beakie Termies have theirs). But cheers for the comments guys, I do take them all on board, and hopefully they will go towards making my figures looking even better.

Might I recommend a spike on the other side of the hammer? It looks kinda offbeat to me with a massive crushing side of the head, and a rather weedy spike on the other. :?

I have now shortened the two gunz that were too long, and they certainly look less overbalanced now. I have also added shoulder pads, horns and some other small pieces to further detail them.

I also have a 'Big Boss' for the unit. As they are based on Beakie Terminators, it seemed only right that the chief Nob had a Banna to say how ard they are.

And then there is a piccy of the engine block.

I am currently rebuilding the chainfist. I didnt feel it looked right, so the fist is a little bigger (and squarer) so it looks more menacing.

The only rivets I have used are on the legs, and these are actually dress making pins. I drilled the holes first, and then cut away most of the stalk. I need to get hold of some very thin plastic rod to make other rivets.

My bitz box. I just pulled stuff out which I felt looked good. There is an old Ork Warbike Autocannon, some new Bike Dakkaguns, a Chaos Combi flamer and an 'umie Heavy Stubber.

And while I am thinking about it, last night I finally did something about the Kombi Rokkit Meganob. I was not happy with the rokkit, it just didnt work for me, so I have changed it completely.

The rokkit was originally from the Epic Mega Gargant, may years ago. It is amazing what creeps into your bitz box.

I have also rebuilt the 'Power Fist', making it larger and more boxy. the sensor array on top is from a Chimera.

well, i tried a bit of looting (though i used termies and a black orc as a base) and they are not nearly this good! i am not adding the box thing around the torso, and i am instead adding shoulder bitz everywhere, and giving them more of a round look. i just made a warboss and a MAN. still, i like yours better :thumbs
