Hi Guys,

Started work on my Feral Ork warboss, using the Ogre Kingdoms Hunter model and Ghazgulls head, took me a while to cut orginal ogres head off (I love my dremel) Now question is, what do I use for the belly plate?

My choices are:

The horned skull that comes with the hunter
A glyph from the Warhammer Orc shields

The shield glyph looks a bit better and brings more 'Ork' to it, but the horned skull just looks mean :!

here's a quick pic of both (needs some more green-stuff work)

Cheers for the comments in advance.

DON'T use the horned head, it will be a complete giveaway that the model is based on the hunter model. I'd go with the glyph if I were you. Also try to break up the ogre form a bit, add a whole lot of orky stuff such as iron gobs and the such.

QUOTE (Ork Codex 4th Edition)
Gork and Mork are divine powerhouses, deities so strong they are never truly defeated. They simply shrug off the attacks of other gods with a raucous laugh. Gork grins, bearing his long teeth, and lands a mighty blow on his adversary's head with a spiked club the size of a comet. Mork, the master of cunning, waits until his foe isn't looking before clobbering him with a low blow.

Having slept on it (ouch!) I'm leaning towards the Glyph idea as well, regarding the ork gubbinz any idea of what I could stick on there? I'm toying with the idea of using iron gobs on his feet as spiky steel toe-caps and putting another ork shoulder plate on the other shoulder, I've also got Ghazgulls Iron Gob, which I could hack up and stick on there - but that might over-power it a bit too much. Maybe a boss pole might lend a bit more 'orky' to it. :ponders

Try some stikk bombz. I know you may not want to, but I think they are good for decoration, plus they look orky.

Definatly the glyph, also i think you should "flesh out" the burna, atleast in the area closest to his hand. it looks weedy right now

glyph. But maybe said painted , the head could look good . The glyph is smal and looks good cause he is detailled for a feral ork not enormous. That's why it could be better than the head.

WOW. Good konversion. I love it. I do like the horned skull, but that's only because it's Goff. Better to go with the glyph plate. Great start for a feral boss. Keep us posted on how this boss turns out. Jobs a gud un. :thumbs WAAAGH! da feral warbosses

That looks really good :love . I'm all for the glyph plate as well, while I think Big Horns work better for Ferals than Iron Gobs I think the skull is too over the top and too big for the model. I don't like the shoulder pad though-way to small for such a huge model. I would either use plasticard to make bigger plates or maybe use GS/magic sculpt to model two skulls as shoulder plates. Would add to the feral theme imho.

I am not a big fan of that particular glyph, that being said I do agree any glyph would be better than the skull, for the same reasons as already stated. The ogre hunter model was a great choice for a feral ork boss I can't wait to see it painted.

I dunno... I like the idea of the glyph, but that one is kinda poor for the job. Its too weedy lookin. I dont really like the skull on there either tho. Check out the Big Box o Nobs sprue, maybe get a glyph off the top of their pole, or maybe chop up that REALLY BIG pole that one nob is haulin around

(I dont play fantasy warhammer) I personally like the look of the skull, even IF it does look like fantasy orge...the glyph just looks like a big belt buckle to me. Maybe use a tyranid warrior's head?

Thanks for all the comments, I went for the Glyph in the end, I also added some stikkbombz and a slugga:

Some more pics can be found here

I also built up the burna a bit with some modelling chain, hopefully i'll have this guy undercoated tomorrow morning and i'll make a start on painting him after I get back from seeing 'Revenge of the Sith' :D

If the glyph looks pants when it's painted I can always rip it off and try the skull for size :)
