So I was reading over Kaptin Badrukk's profile and decided he wasn't too terrible.  So I decided to convert a freeboota Kaptin who counts as one of the three following:

Kaptin Badrukk - Of course!

Kaptin ______ - With a Dead Shiny Shoota, 'Eavy Armor, and a Big Choppa

 

Same Kaptin - But with a twin linked big shoota, 'eavy armor, and the 'Ead Choppa relic. 

 

Hated the previous pic and over the course of tonight I've updated the picture to look halfassed decent.

On to his Shiny Gun!

J9U4D9e.jpgcIWAAjD.jpg

 

It's got a bit of work left to do: Gotta put something on the top, add a bit of plasticard to where the blade attaches, a bit of GS where the wires are. then GS him a trigger/trigger finger. 

 

Working on that, his choppa and boss banna atm.  Will post pics once they are a little more worked on.  Then I'll GS his body so that I can attach them, figure out their location/position, then I'll work on his 'ead and body.

Update! 

Here's a pic of him with all his gear(Except his armored greatcoat, and his head, those are for after the rest of him is 'done'.)

And here's a terrible picture of my plans!  I know it looks aweful,but picture him not looking terrible in it and you can get an idea of how he's shaping up.

Also any ideas on his name?  I'm thinking of painting the 'teef' bits on his gob blue and calling him 'Kaptin Blootoof',  Or do you think that's not orky enough?

This guy is asking for a belly gun xD

Also, looks very choppy. Looking forward for finished model.

 

Choppa is awesome.

 

Regarding the name, i think his rank should be not Kaptain, but Chopp-Kaptain in the fashion of Arch Arsonist. Chopp-Kaptain Grim Gob.

If 'e 'ad a belly gun, den where would 'is bea go!?  You gots ta use her finkin bits, ya git!

Thanks for the comment, I'm liking how the choppa looks too.  But I need to think of a way to bulk it up a bit. 
 

As for his rank, I'm not a fan of 'chopp-kaptin', it doesn't sound phonetically pleasing to me. :D

A bit of work on Da Kaptin today. 

Pic of his body and 'ead.  Now, do you guys think he needs an eyepatch?  Or maybe a cybork/gitfinder?  Or leave it as is?

I've repositoned his pegleg since I took this pic, it looks better now that I've trimmed it back so it looks mroe like he's stepping and put the thick end on the bottom.  Looks more proppa. ;)

 

And a bit of work on the bosspole!

Stick a Grot on his shoulder, pointing.  There is a suitable Gnoblar model that would do the job (think I am going to use this idea myself now).

 

Hope you are going to clean those mold lines up!

I've been trimming some of the modelines as I work.  :P  If you see any I miss please point them out!  I've been bad for ignoring MLs in the past, but I've been getting better at trimming them now that I've figured out the right tool for the job.

 

As for the grot... Eh... Maybe.  We'll see how the model looks, he's already going to be pretty cluttered.  What with the boss pole, huge weapons, his fancy hat.

Is all about two things for me really.
The dakka and a decent hat.
No freeboota captain worth his salt would be without either

May the Enemies blood on your choppa never dry or your welding torch grow cold!

Another(More complete) sketch of Da Kaptin, featuring all his fancy bits!  I don't think there's much left to hunt out for him, just to GS/Plasticard him and glue him together.  

One of my best figures I've ever done, IMHO.  

I decided that he should have the sleeves torn off his coat.  Any advice for doing his hat?

I'd like to see a picture of the repositioned peg leg.  It doesn't look quite right in the photo you've shared.  It seems to be on an angle that doesn't match that of his leg stump.  Aside from this, he's looking promising, and I really like your sketches.  Reminds me of the cartoon Orks in that old Brewhouse Bash (or whatever it was called) from the Gorkamorka days.

Here you are!  I've gotten a bit more work done on him since I took this pick, trimmed down the leg a tad.  As you can see I still need to flush out the GS tatters and maybe add some Plasticard bits to make it proppa. I've also started work on a GS Attack Parrot Squig.

If you're wondering about why I'm doing so many sketches, well it's simple.  It lets me figure out how the bits and the GS work I have planned will fit together.  It also lets me plan some of my GS work ahead before I actually do it(A HUGE plus guys!).  

That being said, here is the latest version of Da Kaptin's 'Ead:
NHWF1LL.jpg

 

I realised that most pirate captains in generic fiction wear bandanas under their hat.  So that's what's hanging off the side of his head there.  He also has a couple little trophies from some of his more recent conquests:  Self given medals for 'Acts of Masterfull Kunnin' and 'Dat was a good scrap dat was!', and some teef from slain rivals.  Hur.  Dem gits thinked dey could take Da Kaptin?!  HAR!  Dat's some funny stuff dat is!

 

Now, I have a question for you lads.  Should he have some fungus beer/rum/grog on him? He's looking a bit full(but you can never be TOO full right!?) so I'm not sure if I should put it on...

i vote cybork eye and a proppa squigrum barrel somewhere held there by a assistant grot. if you put the grot barrel carrier it could even be your ammorunt, as da boss would guzzle down a barrel to clear is ead improve his shooting to get that reroll, see ;)

Love the idea of a grog/rum barrel.  building the wooden barrel out of greenstuff will be a challenge but I think I can pull it off.  I can sort of see it in my head now already. :D

OH!  The above link is for me to ask you ladz if you think I should adapt a sort of...  Sewn together look to Da Kaptin's Koat, basically have it(and his armor) crafted from coats and armor he looted/plundar'd! from people he's fought. :D 

I like that idea, but do you think it would look good? 

UPDATES:  Flushed out the cloth on his pegleg, finished his sword up to 99%, added some tatters on the bulletholes on his banner, did more work on his attack parrot, Mr. Krakaz, and finally worked on his hat, the most important part!  Pics will come as soon as I get my phone. :P

And I'm back with more work on da Kaptin!

After a couple moves and just general busy work with life, I finally have a chance to do some work and waht fantastic work it is! :D

His head, the most obvious thing is that I put a feather and a skull and crossbones on it.  I also did a fair amount of work on his Iron Gob and his bionic eye. 
Lxr4SAR.jpg

 

How do you know if da boss is a proppa one?  By his skars o' course!  And da kaptin has 'em.  One big gash and a handful of bullet holes.  I also gave him a slugga on his belt, more for looks then anything.  And one on his back, and an attack squiggot. 

cCmpNJW.jpg

 

And finally, how he's gonna look once he's more complete! All he's really missing is a few details on his head, and on his melee arm.  I like the position it's in and think it'll work out better.  And of course 'is Kaptin's Coat, can't forget that.

You seem to have got 'im looking pretty much exactly as you originally drew him and although I don't usually like Ogryn Orks, it's only 'is left boot that's the giveaway - and he coulda looted that anyway.

More work!

The kaptin's head is about 98% done, need to add one little doodad to it and a couple extra touch ups.

An extra bit of choppiness, in case da boss needs it!

Added some skars and a plate to the back of the gun arm.

Bit more work to da kaptin's front.

But most importantly, I've got some great work on his coat!
