After ten years of getting shelled, fragged and powerfisted to pieces (and his bosspole has snapped as well!), I felt that my trusty old warboss Lobo Badgutz was in dire need of a new model. This decision was off course completely spontaneous, and had nothing to do with the release of some new Plastic Warboss. ;)

I plan on making the new Lobo actually look like a Deffskull, since the old Lobo was painted when I had just started playing Orks and he was basically a Snakebite Warboss with a slight Braveheart twist (hence the blue warpaint and the name 'Badgutz'). It took me a few months before I realised that Deffskullz were way cooler than Snakebites and wore blue paint as well. :biggrin

New Lobo will be having a Cybork Body; I felt that I was kind of appropriate after all the times he's been kicked, shot, chopped and severely killed in the past. Apart from his mechanical left arm, I'm using that cute new iron-gobbed Nob's head on him (love at first sight, that head) and he'll be getting a kustom bionik replacement for his right leg.

So that's what I've been working on tonight .... I wanted to get a bit of a loota theme going on by crafting his leg from a Beakie's leg like Orrik da Red's, but that turned out to be way too small since the new boss has such beefy legs. So instead, I decided to make a foot from an old Termie's power fist and make the leg itself from a shoota's drum barrel. Those bits glued together turned out to be almost exactly the same size and stance as the Warboss' knee, lower leg and foot. Huzzah!

So far I've rearranged the fingers to make them look more like toes/claws, added some small plasticard pistons in his leg, and added an exhaust to his heel. The place where the thumb used to be is now hidden by a big screw, not sure if I should add one on the other side of the foot as well.
I've also got to figure out a way to get some convincing worky bitz in his calves, but since I've just sliced open my thumb I'm not going to do any more converting tonight .... it's beer time instead. :cheers

Woah woah woah! I think you made some kind of mistake. That is NOT a wee little attack squig ;)
But seriously, I can't wait to see this guy finished up, and ready for krumpin' and lootin'. Another proppa bloo git is never a bad thing!

Nice thinking with the leg, by the way. It looks like it'll fit right perfect.

Thank you for another proppa warboss...
My only concern is that the attack squig/Gobbla is a bit of an expensive bit, for a little upgrade... Oh well, if I had money to spare like that I would probably do it... ;)

I like the new leg, and I think you should put the dead boar head from the older model on the bosspole instead of the jaws, as many people would have that same bosspole - Just something a bit different...

Can't wait too see this finished, keep upi the good work! :thumbs

I never use Special Characters, so if I don't use Gobbla as an attack squig he's nothing but an expensive bit box filler. In fact he's been lying in my bit box for almost two years already. I thought the model deserved a better fate than that since the sculpt is awesome. :thumbs

Heh, the pics don't really show it but that head looks rather goofy in real life ... kind of like a hybrid between a sheep, a warthog and an anteater. :blush ;)
Instead I'm gonna add either a Warboss-glyph or a Deffskull glyph to his pole, something like this:

I'm leaning towards the third pic myself (the horned skull) .... I do think warboss glyphs look good on warbosses though, so I'm not 100% sure which one to choose yet.

Eeew. Go wash your mouth! :nono ;)

You're right though, good for noticing. Ironically enough the basic Deffskull glyph and Goff glyph are very similar (a horned skull and a bull's head).
Maybe angling the horns downward makes them less bovine and thus less Goffish ... ?

Yeah, that warboss glyph really needs to be included *somewhere* on the model .... Maybe I'll make a small one and hang it from that weird ring on his shoota barrel which seems to have no purpose whatsoever.

While I was checking my bitz for suitable skulls to use, I came across these tiny bosspole skulls:

Those come with a horizontal bone which seems perfect for a Deffskull ("Death", "Skull" and "Bone" are all the same glyph, a bone).

So here's some new ideas .... No horns this time, but a bone instead. I like the checkered ones myself.

Cheers, the stupid thumb has kind of cured already. Still hurts like crazy when I'm actually using it though. :lol

Anyway, I've build the bosspole and stuck some more screws and nuts on the leg ... still need to hollow out his upper leg a bit more as the bionik leg is a few milimetres too tall (making the Warboss look like he's falling over).

Posted Image

The "worky bitz" in his calve are a piece of Beakie banner pole and a screw, with the bottom part of the pole hidden by a strip of plasticard and a piece of old bolter handle because I had no idea how to make it look actually "worky". :blush

Is that foot made out of a powerfist? Hilarious. Also, if he's looking unbalanced because his bionik leg is too tall, you can always give his boot some plasticard on the bottom.

I actually really like that bannerpole. It's a simple combination of parts that I'd never even thought of. The powerfoot is excellent, as well. I think, given the fact that he's a deffskull, some 'looted' modifications to his weapon would be ideal. Even if it's just a scope from a beakie bolter, it wouldn't hurt. ... though I think a ripper gun would be better. :P

Cheers ladz!

Also, if he's looking unbalanced because his bionik leg is too tall, you can always give his boot some plasticard on the bottom.


I'm not that handy with plasticard, so I'm always kind of afraid that plasticard soles will turn out looking like those 1980's disco boots when I make them. :blush Instead, I've just carved away some more plastic from inside his leg and now he stands firm on both legs (or at least as firm as you can stand when your leg has been replaced with some alien's atrificial hand and a piece of gun).

Now only thing missing is that blue mohawk.


No worries, he'll be getting a shiny turquoise one. ;)

I think, given the fact that he's a deffskull, some 'looted' modifications to his weapon would be ideal. Even if it's just a scope from a beakie bolter, it wouldn't hurt.

... though I think a ripper gun would be better.


I'd have to agree with Ein, that shoota needs something... maybe looty bitz.


The scope will be added, I've got plenty of those thing lying around. Adding some more looted parts sounds like a good idea .... I should at least replace the upper muzzle with a lascannon's muzzle or something like that since the one it has now is rather weedy looking. Maybe even remove both muzzles and replace them with the muzzle from a stormbolter, heavy bolter or plasma gun or something?

I should have a spare Ripper Gun lying somewhere (my old Tankbusta Nob is a converted Ogryn), but I think it'll be more suitable as a Deffgun or Big Shoota due to its size (those things are big!).

The power klaw also needs some deffskullification, but I was thinking bout doing that simply with the paint job, painting the bigger panels in Beakie colours to make them look 'liberated'. There's some nice colours I can pick from thanks to the amount of weedy Loyal Beakie skumgrodz at my local club, though sadly none of them play Ultramarines who would've been easy to incorporate in the overall colour scheme .... It's Imperial Fists, Flesh Tearers, Deathwing, Iron Hands and Space Wolves instead and I'm probably forgetting a few colours because all beakies look alike when you've krumped them, regardless of the colour underneath the blood stains. ;)

Just pull it off and sculpt a new one. :biggrin

I'd go with Deathwing colors for the "foot". And, as mentioned, a scope or something added to the gun would give it that little something extra.

I'm liking how this is coming together. :thumbs
