Da Big Bat 'n Da Belfry...
 
 
oh no... not another Maw Kabbage!
i saw a MawKrusha going cheap on ebay, and at the time was considering converting one for a Snakebite flyer, but since then i've built one from a Night Gaunt. or whatever they are called.
But i bought it anyway.
It came without a Boss or Base, but was half price.
As it turns out, the cost of base and Boss comes to this and more, so i didn't find a bargain that i'd first thought,
However, i have the model now, so what to do with it.57811491_2410187785659524_37489275479460
 
The base proved an easy thing to solve as i was painting my bathroom around this time.  right shape and size... sorted!

but then came the konundrum.... how to make my pregnant kabbage different than every other Mawkrusha...
<ping> idea...
57606616_2410187612326208_44934702648304
 
add an old tower i made out of wavin pipe and sprue bricks and a bit of insulation foam from the local builders waste... and its starting to take shape..
 
 
My son reckons it'd make the MawKRusha a big target.
My responce... If ya can't see da big fat dragon, ya need ta go to Speksaverz..... also over 50% cover for models near to hand so cover save against them.... dat's kunning 'n' more dan a bit brutal too
 
 
I've yet to decide what i'm going to use this model for, Snakebite Orks battlewagon.. scenery, or start collecting more Orruks for a second AoS army along with my Bonesplitterz.. i already have a few models, some Gore Gruntas i use as Nob Bikers ect .
open to ideas

 instead of one big boss 'Megaboss' Orruk, i could throw a few Snakebite Nob 'Brutes on it as a transporta BattleDragon and add a bit of dakka

so that's decided then, it'll be a 40k Snakebite Bonekrusha Battledragon. with a rolla (jaws) grabbing Klaw, (right fist) and WRecking ball (left)

 

I've put this in the fantasy forum, but it'll be 40k after all. i'll have to move it.

As a terrain piece, or Age of Sigmar model, this is pretty much completed now, but i still plan to turn it into a 40k Ork Battledragon Bonekrusha. It already has a deffrolla (jaws) Grabbing klaws, (klaws) and a wrecking ball (tail,) and dropping a couple of big shootas on it is easy, but a Killkannon or other big gun might be a challenge. A skorcha is not an issue, but thats not an option, and troop carrying is easy, just climb abaord and find somefing ta old onta!

It's not too heavy, and pretty stable. The wavin pipe is hollow, the roof made of foam apart from the metal door, the walls sprue cuttings and nomorenails apart from the doors, the base is foam over a lightweight paint tin lid. whole thing weighs maybe a bag of sugar? but i doubt it would fall over on a battlefield anytime soon. even allowing for cats which won't happen in my house
