I like to think of Nobz as being bigger and tougher than da boyz, >: and I'm sure most of you would agree

Posted Image

With this in mind I made one of the Bosses of my waaagh, Jabba da Nob
I'm open to a better name, but this one will do for now.

Posted Image

He is based off of a confrontation miniature, I'm not sure of his name anymore. I took the dremel to him, I had to grind off his nose, and this huge necklace around his neck, as well as a fanny pack which held an anvil of all things, :? (those whacky french)

I re sculpted the nose, and the chain around his neck, and the legs of his snotling,(salacious snot?)

I'm not quite happy with his arms and weapons, but I want to stick to the theme, maybee replace the knife with a hooka stem...any ideas?

also not sure what the snot is doing, he's got something in his hands, perhaps the chain he's held with...




I know what you're thinking, "Surely he can't run into battle"

It's true, and part of the reason for this excessivly large nob was, me looking at the dark panzee raider, and Scarpia's panzee-luuva, and thinking about how well it'd look on the sands of Tatooine...

Posted Image

I've had Asdrubael's(sp?) raider sitting in my bitzbox for years now, and an old battle wagon wheel (hopefully I can find it's pair), and I just got a few of the first ed buggies and a wartrack off ebay, so here is the start of his barge...

here is the first idea...
Posted Image

or it could go this way, with plastic card running boards for the boyz...
Posted Image

not sure what to do for the front wheel, maybee cut one in half like Scarp did...

I am planning on making this count as a truck, so no big gunz, but it needs space to hold a couple boys.

also I'm not sure where the driver will sit...

comments and criticism appreciated

I dont like it. It looks so nurgle its not funny, but not ork. If you called that a demon prince or somesuch, id pat you on the back and say thats an awesome model. But as an ork? Nah. :puke

I dunno... it could work, but as Jolly_ork points out, it'd have to be some sort of Nurgle tainted Ork army. I know Crazy Dentist was working on a Nurgle warboos, and it looked really great. The pictures of it on this forum are gone, though. The english White Dwarf also once featured a nurgle-tainted Ork army.

looks like a really really really fat badmoon with no personal hygiene :puke very nice model though. unless your entire army has a fatness theme i don't really like it though. you could take it off the base and put it directly on the barge, and make the barge hovering, no wheels. then just keep it as a diorama thing.

Sorry, but everything is great about this model but the model itself. A nob with saggy man boobs? Roight. I'm all for different models being used as nobs and warbosses, but this is for me just too chaosy, and orks get bigger as they fight, not fatter. Well, those bad moons are a whole differerent issue. Weedy. :cheers
meh.

it looks nice,and orks can be "husky" and still llok cool,but this one is a bit over the edge orks are all about 'though' and 'strong',an some fat wont kill though and strong but to much will... good work though

A besotted looking, overweight Ork. Hmmm... Sounds a bit like that "Whatizname the Paunch" from WHFB. We think the model could work, but would require much modification, basically more equipment, armor and the like. But the saggy man-boobs gotta go. He looks too naked as is. Ork dementedness is well documented, but it is our considered opinion that average Ork would balk and hanging out with an obese near-nude boss like that. "Oh yeah? just try and catch me your fatness!"

Hmmm... I dont beleive in fat globulite orks... Its not orky, they grow MUSCLE from fighting, and this means this guys just a lazy food guzzling couch potato. How would he possibly have gotten the status of a nob? He doesnt even look like he could walk! :rolleyes

If he had a big ol' bionic Powerklaw, and was pushed around in a little cart by a group of grots, maybe. But as lots of people have said, he looks like an overweight, overdosed Nurgle champion with a hangover. Thank you for doing what none have dared to do so far. Please make the cart red ... :cheers

While painting his man boobs I just kept thinking of Meatloaf in Fightclub, "Bob had :bleep tits. They hung huge, the way you think of gods as big..." its totally true, I really should have realized at some point how nurgle he looks. ;) especially considdering I have like five of the first ed great unclean ones, perhaps this represents some unconscious tainting on my part. I wanted him to be OTT, and offensive, so in that I suppose mission acomplished :thumbs I'm thinking the weedy badmoon route is the way to go, perhaps a tacky moon glyph medallion is in order I hesitate to clothe him or give him a pclaw, just because i don't want to stray too far from the Jabba image. the same goes for making his cart red, i've been thinking beige, perhaps the previous owners had it painted beige and the added bits will be red... I keep debating mounting him to the barge, it was to just be a transport/trukk but he might look better on it now I'm not so sure if I want to waste both of the old buggy chassis on this model -brad

I think the problem is his feet; they're somehow in the wrong position. And he's so superbly flabby that his belly drags on the ground. It's just bizzare, I don't know what else to say. But it is very well painted.

I agree with krooza. And my own boss has a beer-gut bigger than most oomiez.

But this is just wrong.

I suggest you start a nurgle army with it :yes

Kr00za's Mek is a bit squidgy, but I wouldn't call him fat

Watched "The Omen" last night and did more work.


Decided to put Jabba permanently in the barge. gave him a chair

I hope if he's sitting he looks a bit more natural a bit more like he's got legs in there somewhere...

fluffwise; for him, sloth is the way to go, I don't think he leaves his barge very that often, as he's quite rich,



i'm beginning to think it needs a small the sail-roof-sunscreen thing...
Posted Image



more card work to come, and I'm thinking smaller rivitz...

Would it make a better truck, perhaps a junka trukk to transport madboyz?
Or a gunwagon, Cuz hes just that hardcore? and he is >:
not sure if what weapons to mount, and where,
I thought it might be amusing to add some night goblins done up like jawas riding along and acting as gunners

any upgrades?

Remove the nipples. Orks do not have nipples. Orks should not have nipples. This has been said endlessly, but it looks more Nurgle than Ork. I would use it as a possessed Warboss when you play Demonhunters or with a friend. Embrace Grandpapa Gork. :lol The sail barge looks great. Looks damaged enough to be looted. :thumbs Edit:The new arm makes him look a LOT better.

Ah, thanks a lot Grimmtoof, now I'm naseous. I agree with the Nipples, though. Technically, since Orks reproduce through spores, they cannot have nipples.
