I think the best way to introduce myself in the Mek's Garage is to present my most recent big conversion project: my Ork Juggerboss. He doesn't really have a name yet. See the progress pics below. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I think I'd have gone for slightly bigger feets on it but splendid work on the rest of it - that is pretty obviously a WARBOSS  :thumbs

Thanks, Badfang. I must say that the hooves are my least favorite part of the model and they are the subject of much consternation. I might mush up some Grenstuff and add some bulk to them. Maybe that will give them a better look.

​​No Worries, it's a real world problem of ground pressure - something that size and weight would probably sink up to it's armpits on feet that were too small. Not a major issue for an SF model on a plastic base but generally, if something looks like it'd work in real life then it'll usually look right :thumbs

Damn, It's time for Mr. Science Nerd again! I hate it when he shows up, and makes everyone's eyes glaze over. :scowl 

 

The suborder Suina, pigs & peccaries, are semi-digitigrade creatures. Semi-digitigrade creatures walk on their feet, and run on their toes. Pigs have a second set of toes behind the first set (what you might consider a hoof) that they use when walking around, or foraging. When they run, they only use the front two. Entelodonts were prehistoric pigs of mammoth proportions (>1,000 lbs.), and most would consider their feet rather dainty given the overall size of the creature.  :soap 

 

Leave your consternation behind Loopy, the feet of your mega-pig are actually of an appropriate size. :yes It's one of those counter-intuitive things Badfang that nature likes to throw at us every now and then. ;)  That said, it is a creature of Loopy's imagination, and he can make the hooves larger if he thinks it will look better. :thumbs

Wow! Very interesting. 

 

It might be that the back of the hoof is very straight and makes it just look like a small foot rather than a hoof. 

 

I'm going to go ahead and look at some photos of real piggies again to see if I want to change anything. 

 

Thanks again, folks. :)
