Thanks for coming by! This thread is to chronicle this build and painting. My gaming group has a 2 day campaign coming up on July 12th. One of the things being done is a painting and conversion contest for special characters. Mine is Mega Armored Warboss Toegnasher. So, I have to build and paint this fella by that date...no mean feat for my amount of time. Hence why it is 3:30AM...and I have to work soon :bleep

I have been dying to make a Big Super Badass Bad Moons Warboss using a defiler claw, and here is my chance! I got a couple basic things done tonite, which started with me rampaging through one of my (too) many bitz boxes looking for parts. In the following pictures, you can see my progress so far, as well as some of the bitz I have chosen. So without further rambling, Le Pics:

I plan on making some big shoulder pads via kitbashing and plasticard. I will of course be building a ridiculous power supply to juice the powerklaw, and I am going to build an over the top shoota arm as well. Also, I will be making a GrotBot as an attack squig.

Comments, criticism, ideas and general cheerleading encouraged and appreciated!

It looks promising, although you're going to need to seriously bulk out the body to match the legs and defiler arm. Looking forward to seeing this develop.

if your going to make it that big then maybe you should also consider using it as a dread, but it does look promising!

This looks to be very promising. I'm not too sure about using the defiler klaw but I have seen stranger things done fantastically by some of the gitz around here so I'm not too concerned with it.
Sometimes when I'm alone I pretend I'm a squig...

erm, the 12th? As in 9 days from now? Painted too? sheeesh, Ug, yer not messin' about, are ya? Go for it! What you've got looks pretty good so far. Although I am a tad curious how you're going to get that claw high enough off the ground so that Tosgnasher doesn't turn out to be Knuckledragger. Waaagh on, Ug!

Dynamic basing, MGD! Though I remember someone doing spark effects with a powerklaw scraping the ground.... I am going to put him on a 60mm base, and count him as a monstrous creature for the campaign. Once we work out the special rules I will post them here. I lost yesterday. When I got back from gaming night I was just too wiped out to do anything. The room was unbearably hot, and I had to finish my games for our Kill Teams campaign. Luckily, today should be nice and slow at work and I brought my rivet punching supplies with me. Did I mention I was also going to rivet, repair and paint Lorax's Battlewagon at the same time as I do this project? Yeah, I am going to be up late again tonite ;) Thanks for your comment, lads!

So, I went over the top again. I wanted to make a big, nasty gun with barrels bristling everywhere. I think I will be adjusting it (as I have several times tonite) but I am getting there. I need to watch how many times I redo things because time is definately an issue.

Hydraulics have been started for the shoota arm. I also put on some shoulder pads, and I still need to put battle damage on the left one. I finished the base, but I need to work on connecting the hips to the torso. That will be tomorrow nights challenge. I am going to bust out the dremel and pin it nicely, and go from there.

I tried to GS the feet, and MAN am I utter garbage with putty. Oh well, all in experience and I already started filing. I will finish filing tomorrow, and hopefully that will help smooth things out. I am also going to start thinking a bit more about the engine.

Well, it's 4:30 and it's my day to get up with my daughter. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Are you going to use him as a ghazkul or ordinary boss?

He is a special character for the event, and will count as a monstrous creature.

I think you could use the klaw alone as a monstrous creature. ;) The gun can't exaclty be mistaken for a pea-shooter either. This is gonna be a cool looking boss when your finished. The base looks great BTW. :thumbs

When I built my mega sized warboss one thing i used for shoulder pads were the fenders off of the old buggy. If you have on laying around that you don't feel too attached too, they make great pads. This guy is looking dead ard so far.
Off to a fantastic start!

Also, I am so excited to see the wagon with some paint on it. I left you in a bad spot with the riveting (sorry again about that). Now get back to work! :whip

So funny that you mention that Lorax, as I am about to show you in the pics ;) I also took some Barry shots, Noze, soe 'Ere We Go!

I made the gun much more worky, and took it from a Battle Cannon to a Kustom Mega Blaster type of weapon. I still haven't been able to attach the torso and legs, no collet for my dremel and the batteries in my drill are dead! Speaking of dead batteries, same thing goes for my camera. Sorry for the blurry shots. I will be back with more updates soon!

Wow :love. These pictures really show off how zoggin uge that kannon is! I used to play an RPG called Rifts. It is a cool game, but there is a unit in the game that has this uge cannon. It basically is a rail gun, but in order for it to fire, it has to have some stabalization. This unit has to drill into the ground to hold itself still. It would be interesting if you could come up with some "Orky" stabilization. Like perhaps a bunch of grots holding him from the recoil, or maybe an arm that hits the ground (like a backhoe). Nice work on the shoulder pad! :cheers Lorax

So here is an update: I got him pinned and put together at the waist. I also went ahead and put a magnet in his base (circled in green) as well as in one of his feet. I think I am going to try and add one to the rhino door as well, because he slips around a bit and it's tricky getting him to stay on. This is such a fun project, I can't believe I am getting this done so fast. I am pretty confident that the painting will go fast as well.

As far as the build goes, I still have to build a soopa crazy powah supply. But I think I have just the bits to do it, and can hopefully get it done tonite. I will wind up priming him tomorrow, and maybe getting to paint tomorrow night. We have a wedding to go to tomorrow. Wish me luck, and thanks for checking this out!

Ok! So this is it, tomorrow it goes to the paintshed. If anyone catches anything or has a last minute suggestion, let me know! I will be reading this tomorrow before I start painting.

I detailed the shoes, built the soopa powah supply, and added a bosspole...because I like it. I hope you guys do to. Here are the pics:

As much as I want to put more rivets on the battlewagon right now, I need to get a lil nap in. Tomorrow is going to be a long day.

So on recommendation, I added a bit to the gun arm as it seemed a bit weedy. I added another hydraulic piston in. It needs another touch up on the priming anyway.

So, let me know what ya think, lads. I will be priming again right now. I have a family party, so I will come back and check later. If you have any recommendations or notice anything amiss, let me know and I will address it. Other than that, Let the painting begin!!!

Im glad you put an extra piston on his gun arm but I still think it needs some more support, another piston or two would make it look like it could actually handle the recoil from his uge gun.
