Thanks. :blush

The concrete is the crappy Sculpy (the stuff that kids use). It works great for ruined walls and stuff like that because it chips off in chunks when you scrape at it with an exacto knife.

I got a little more done last night. All that's left on the torso is one spot left on the back, then it's on to the legs and boots. :(

Arms are almost done, just a few spots here and there to fill. I hope the veins on the forearms turn out once I get them painted. I'm affraid I may have made them too flat.

This is going to be the choppa. Still a lot left on it though.

As for the Snotling, I may have to convert one. I don't feel like buying a whole pack of them just for the chance at getting one. I already bought a pack a while ago. I got at least two of every pose they make, except for the one I bought the pack for. :scowl

I admire your greenstuff skills sir, and salute you! Nasty looking choppa, but abit plain at the same time. I take it you'll sculpt the hands?

nice work Noze, that body's coming together well. i'm a little worried about the axe though, are you sure it'll be big enough? maybe make one of the heads a little larger? one the other hand, maybe it's big already - could you show us a scale pic? [edit: helps when you remember who's doing what...]

Thanks. Yes, I'll be sculpting the hand, I'm affraid. I kind of butchered the originals while chopping up the arms. I'll be adding some gubbins to the choppa and I'll be GSing a grip on the handle as well. I think it should be big enough, it's 2 1/2" long and over 1" wide. If anything, I'll need to shorten it a bit. EDIT: Yeah, #500. And steroid free! Does that automatically get me into the Hall of Fame?

:? Dude, have you even looked at your avatar? And the Warboss you are working on right now? If those are steroid free, I'll crush the model I am working on now.;)

Anyway, excellant job on the muscle sculpting for your Warboss. I would suggest beefing up the abs. They look a little small compared to his other muscles.
I also think the head of the axe is a little too small compared to the hilt, even if you are going for a two-handed axe.

The abs will probably be mostly covered by armor, so I'm not too worried about them. The hilt on the choppa will most likely be chopped off a bit as well. I'm not going to make the final cuts until I've got the legs and feet finished. That way I'll have a size comparison with the rest of the boss and a better idea of how long to have the hilt.

Fantastic green stuffing !! Lovely base. Love the over muscled look on big ugly orks ! I used an OOP Zoat torso on one of my big bosses, it doesn't look to far off what you have accomplished here (Just an idea for those that don't have your GS skills!) Looking forward to seeing the rest of the build.

He's coming along nicely Nozeminer. :thumbs

I'm not sure I've seen Sculpy in the UK, is it like greenstuff/miliput or do you have to bake it? It looks really useful from what you've done with it.

Keep up the good work. :cheers

It's kind of like modeling clay. You have to bake it to harden it. It's all right. This is the softer kind of Sculpy. You can't really get too detailed with it and it tends to pick up fingerprints really well.

Awesome greenstuff work. The deltoids might be sticking out a tad too far (I hope I named the right muscle group), but it might just be the that the arms aren't attached yet that makes them look so big. Also, where did you think of that wicked name? :cheers

@ Grakhull - Actually, if you mean the shoulder muscles, they're going to get bigger. Once I attach the arms, I'll be GSing on the deltoids. I don't think I'll be making them as big as I had originally planned though. Before I started building Orks, I played against a freinds Orks all the time. I used to refer to them as "booger boyz", "the snot squad" etc. When I decided to start my own army of Orks the name just came to me. Did some work on his boots last night and today. I'll be finishing up the steel toes and heels tonight, hopefully. Will post pics when the camera batteries are charged.

See, I knew I named the wrong muscle group. I meant to refer to the muscles on his sides below the arms. They really bulge out to the side. Again, I'm sure it will look different once the arms are attached. :cheers

@ Grakhull - I believe the muscle group your referring to is the latissimus dorsi. @Nozeminer - This is really coming along great, your greenstuff skills are excellent can't wait to see this finished and crumpin some humies.
I also do commission work so if you have any you want doing don't hesitate to message me or check out my website The WAAAGH Studios.

Thanks, I may have to loot some Fimo from my Mum and see if that works as it sounds similar.

I've just noticed that the snot on your original warboss isn't the nose-picker I was thinking of. Is that the snotling you are looking for, if so I've got a spare one you can have.

@Gaf-Naz - Fimo's the same thing pretty much. We can get that too here in the States, but Sculpey is more prevalent.

No. I'm looking for the one that's just standing there with his finger up his nose. I've got a couple of the ones that have their fists up. Thanks anyway, though.

Got some more work done yesterday and last night.

Attached left arm and added the deltoid.

Posted Image

Got the Klaw done.
Posted Image
Posted Image

It got a little bigger than I planned, but, hey...
Posted Image

Boots are done. I'm not 100% happy with the shape of the toes, but it took too long to do the laces to redo stuff.
Posted Image

Got some work done on the choppa and hand. Just need some rivits and the glove needs a little touching up.
Posted Image

Now, just to get the right position and length for the legs. I plan on doing the straps and armor today as well.

Wow, Noze, I really can't even find a nit to pick. The torso is lovely. The claw arm is spot on. P-card work on the klaw is good too. I do agree with your appraisal of the boots. Dunno exactly what it is, but they just ain't right. I guess the toe is a bit too balloonish. Still it won't be much noticed when it's altogether and painted up proppa. So just waaagh on...
